Sans All

Have the Russians bombed an MSF hospital in Syria?

Well, the Saudis do that, and such as that, all the time in Yemen.

Armed by Britain, supported by David Cameron to the point of there being British officers in the control room, and almost completely ignored by the British media.

  1. Assume you've seen the Prospect interview with George:

    He opposed western intervention against Bashar al-Assad, the Syrian President, in 2013 and also the decision to extend UK airstrikes against Islamic State (IS) in Syria. “It’s not that I’m against intervention against IS,” he said, “I’m for more intervention against IS, overwhelming and crushing.”

    Galloway believes Russia is leading the way. “I support the decision of the Russian government to come to the aid of the government in Syria because whatever faults it [the Syrian government] may have, whatever crimes it has committed, they are considerably fewer than the crimes committed by IS or would be committed by IS were they to come to power.” When I asked about the current humanitarian crisis in Aleppo, where Russian airstrikes are targeting non-IS rebels, Galloway said: “Well there was a humanitarian crisis in Berlin in 1945 but that didn’t mean that the pestilence of Nazism didn’t have to be crushed. It had to be as it was. The same is true in Aleppo.”
