“Yesterday afternoon, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power marched to Twitter to proclaim: ‘we call on Russia to immediately cease attacks on Syrian opposition and civilians.’ Along with that decree, she posted a statement from the U.S. and several of its closest authoritarian allies – including Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the UK – warning Russia that civilian casualties ‘will only fuel more extremism and radicalization.’
“Early this morning, in the Afghan city of Kunduz, the U.S. dropped bombs on a hospital run by Doctors Without Borders (Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)). The airstrike killed at least 9 of the hospital’s medical staff, and seriously injured dozens of patients. ‘Among the dead was the Afghan head of the hospital, Abdul Sattar,’ reported The New York Times.”

Maybe the incompetent US forces and their allies should just get the fuck out of the way and let the Russians make a proper job of finishing the war. They at least have a decent excuse for being there.
