Politics

A gross double-standard

When Afghan or Pakistani civilians are murdered by drone strikes, US bangs on about ‘collateral damage‘, but when Syrian civilians are murdered by Assad regime/militias, US cries about ‘war crimes’.

Let’s not forget that a war crime is a war crime is a war crime, regardless of the context in which war crimes are committed.

Hypocrisy is a terrible, terrible thing.
