I believe that the US publicly apologised for having mislabeled hideouts as "hospitals".

I'm sure you "believe" that, but that does not make it so.

Here in the world where we have references to our claims, the Russians have been bombing hundreds of hospitals, schools and mosques in Syria (as a war strategy), and lied about it verifiably and consistently, ever since they came to help Assad in 2015.

This is well documented on the Wiki page for it, with links to many reports from organizations like the ICRC (Red Cross) and MSF (Doctors Without Borders) and the UN. Russia even bombed hospitals that the UN had given them coordinates to as being health facilities, and suppressed UN investigations into these war crimes.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian%E2%80%93Syrian_hospital_bombing_campaign

The NYT article is another report about these hospital bombings by the Russian Air Force, but this time with an extraordinary amount of evidence presented. Just read the report and listen to the Russian pilots before and after they strike their target and be amazed as to how detailed the NYT has researched this issue :
https://www.nytimes.com/2019/10/13/world/middleeast/russia-bombing-syrian-hospitals.html

There is a LOT more I'd like to say about Russia's war crimes in Syria, and the denial of them by some members of this forum, but I suggest we move that discussion to the "Russia" thread.

Back on topic for this thread :

Trump's threats of war crimes (strikes against Iranian cultural sites) and war-mongering (threatening FAST and HARD retaliations against Iran) is having real deadly consequences as Iran military, on critical alert, mistakenly shot down a civilian airliner.

<snip, don't go off-topic after saying 'back on topic', and take it to the Syria thread. While at it you might want to discuss the OPCW whistleblower scandal, but probably not; N.>

Hunter on deck:

"Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) says Republicans could subpoena Hunter Biden to testify about his business dealings with a Ukrainian gas company if Democrats insist on having witnesses"

"Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Monday night said he will force a vote on subpoenaing Hunter Biden if Democrats insist on hearing from senior administration officials "

One thing i hadn't thought of is that if the republicans subpoena Joe Biden, he will lose road time as well.

The FBI arrested three members of a neo-Nazi hate group who had weapons and discussed traveling to a pro-gun rally on Monday in Richmond, Virginia, in anticipation of a “possible race war.” The NRA has yet to disavow the rally.

Maybe that "deep state" is actually working as intended.

NAZIs feel entitled to do NAZI things because the president is a NAZI also and thinks 'NAZIs are fine people'.

I think it's this what Rob means.

Oh well, in that case, all we have to do, is get rid of that nasty nazi president, and leave the system just as is, and all will be wonderful again.

I certainly never implied that, and i think Rob didn't either, Neven.

You know that i want the system to be crushed just as badly as you.
