Russia denies hospital bombing

The Kremlin has denied reports that the Russian air force bombed hospitals in northern Syria on Wednesday, saying there was no evidence to back up such claims.

Aid organisations accused Russia of deliberately targeting hospitals on Monday, in strikes that killed dozens.

“We categorically do not accept such statements, the more so as every time those making these statements are unable to prove their unfounded accusations in any way,” said Dmitry Peskov, Vladimir Putin’s press secretary, on Tuesday.

    What, Putin lie? That’s Putinophobic. Right up there with islamophobia, homophobia, and whiny indianophobia.

    As a matter of general policy, I always take what alleged “aid organizations” say with a HUGE GRAIN OF SALT. Wherever one finds sanctimony, one finds hypocrisy and lies. “Aid organizations” have a pronounced tendency to LIE and OBFUSCATE. I always refused any and all work related to “aid organizations” throughout my professional career. I have a conscience, after all!

    What the hell would anyone expect the Russians to say?

    As long as doctors without borders allows armed terrorists in its hospitals everything is fair game.

    Muslims have a long history of using hospitals as troop and ammo depots.
