    What a major screwup. The hospital, run in part by Doctors without Borders, has been blasted , purportedly by the American military as run under President Obama.

    The blasts left part of the hospital in flames and rubble, killing 12 staffers and seven patients -- including three children -- and injuring 37 other people, the charity said. "(The bombing) constitutes a grave violation of international humanitarian law," Doctors Without Borders, known internationally as Medecins Sans Frontieres, or MSF, said."

    I read multiple reports of this event and they all give a slightly different version. One said that Afghan Helicopter gunships had done the damage, another said it was American jets and yet another said that there was a battle with Taliban fighters in the building waging a battle with Afghan troops outside. There was also some indication that maybe the Taliban had shot most of the dead.

    I have no idea which one to believe.

    None of them mentioned Obama.

    I am amazed that Obama has the time to fly on bombing missions.

    King Hussein has plenty of time for killing innocents. It's how he relaxes after a few games of golf.

    It frankly disturbs me that the US have criticised Russia for its actions and then go on to knowingly bomb and MSF hospital.

    What is your point?

    Do you think that collateral damage and friendly fire casualties have only happened under President Obama?

    At least we have progressed beyond the total war strategic bombing policies of WWII and Vietnam.

    Obama talked so much about killing Usama bin Laden, I thought he kicked-in the door and shot him in the face.

    A good leader doles out the credit to others and and takes the hits himself.
