Kerry Says Strikes By Russia, Syria 'Beg For' A War Crimes Investigation

Kerry, saying what needs to be said.
Kerry Says Strikes By Russia, Syria 'Beg For' A War Crimes Investigation

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is ratcheting up his rhetoric against Russia and Syria.

"Russia and the regime owe the world more than an explanation about why they keep hitting hospitals and medical facilities and children and women," he said in remarks Friday ahead of a meeting with France's foreign minister. "These are acts that beg for an appropriate investigation of war crimes."

Russian and Syrian forces have repeatedly hit medical facilities, and Kerry pointed to a new incident in his remarks. "Last night, the regime attacked yet another hospital, and 20 more people were killed and 100 people were wounded," he said. Here's more from Kerry:

"They're beyond the accidental now — way beyond. Years beyond the accidental. This is a targeted strategy to terrorize civilians and to kill anybody and everybody who is in the way of their military objectives."

...A new report from Doctors Without Borders highlighted the desperate situation that medical facilities face in the divided Syrian city of Aleppo. The group says there have been "at least 23 recorded attacks on eastern Aleppo's eight remaining hospitals since the siege began in July."

The eight hospitals in rebel-held eastern Aleppo are overwhelmed, with patients "literally dying on the floors of the facilities." Doctors Without Borders, also known as Médecins Sans Frontières, added that "in an area with a population of approximately 250,000, only seven professionals remain who are capable of performing surgeries on war-wounded patients."

The return of the Cold War brought to you by the neocons led by Hillary Clinton and company. Oh, yay.

This is what I and many people have been saying. Irony alert. Barney Frank sounds like Trump and so does Maher.

Kerry is insane, looking to fight a war against Russia. Figures that he would be a Noble Peace Prize nominee. Øbama won one.

Electing Hillary may guarantee that war. The neocons are all in.

Putin has been playing cat and mouse with us. Does he WANT a war...?
From Zero Hedge: Russia Warns US Any Strikes On Syrian Army Would Lead To War: "Our S-300, S-400 Defenses Are Up And Running".

The man is seriously deranged, bombing hospitals and relief efforts. To what end?

The Russians know that. It's why they're taking advantage of the situation.

It also opened the door for Israel to do the same in Gaza.

Seen any comments on the news from the President about it being war crimes?

How about anyone from the Bush administration?

Anything from Donnie Doom?

This is that point in time where the Iraq invasion, Abu Graib, and Guantanamo Bay, come back to bite us in the ass.

And this is just the beginning.

Substitute 'Bush' for "Øbama" and she'd agree with you.

Republicans have become appeasers of Putin and Russia. Weak kneed doesn't even begin to describe them. This is the same country that blew 23 Americans out if the sky over Ukraine. You Benghazi phonies are showing your true stripes. You never fooled the Left anyhow.
