I'm pretty sure bombing a hospital is a war crime, regardless of who owns it.

Yup, that as well. Although why it's relevant, I don't know, unless you're suggesting that war crimes are OK if someone else commits them as well.

When you hear about a hospital being bombed you can't help but imagine a clean looking building, ambulances parked outside, big red cross on it etc exploding into a fireball. How coul anyone justify bombing it? Why on earth did America blow one up, why have Russia done so too?

I suspect though the reality is worlds apart, and the building was pretty generic and could have passed as any number of things, including a typical building holding enemy soldiers.

I'm not saying Russia/Assad are innocent or have been stitched up, but surely we need to learn more about how and why the building was targetted. We are too matter of fact already, stating it was a hospital and having question based headlines like 'Why did Russia attack a hospital?' - completely loading it with emotional bias. Do we know for sure Russia was aware it was a hospital during the attack?

As Enoch has just shown, the US have bombed a hospital, and countless other civilian buildings, but the context of the intent of the attack is crucial. We want Russia to be open to an investigation but painting them as evil straight away is completely unhelpful.

Don't most organisation like MSF make a point of informing all combatants of the location of their facilities?

The big trouble with news like this is that it makes headlines, and often gets used politically for short term blame, but the context will take ages to come out.

you might want to remind the IDF and Israeli Air Force about that one, then they might actually get tried as war criminals for blowing up hospitals in Palestine

Nope, those are war crimes as well.

And as for my 'jew loving agenda', it only extends as far as criticising the antisemitism that's on display.

Exactly. And this particular conflict seems to be especially mysterious in terms of the different sides, motives and objectives. We are told certain things by the various parties, all of whom have their own agendas and propaganda. I think it's probably best to keep an open mind.
