A slap on the wrist for murder in Afghanistan


#1

The US military delivers ‘administrative punishment’ for the sustained attack on an MSF hospital that killed 42 civilian staff. No criminal charges. No surprise … :disappointed:

My feelings exactly. I mean, there is literally over a century of precedent for the U.S. military ignoring war crimes they have committed, with many prominent recent examples. It also doesn’t help that we have effectively threatened to invade the Netherlands if the ICC ever tries to pursue war crimes against a U.S. citizen.

EDIT: Goddamnit, 50 more minutes till I can like your topic MY LIKES HAVE RETURNED!!
