War crimes row: US blames Russia for civilian deaths, omits own transgressions

War crimes row: US blames Russia for civilian deaths, omits own transgressions
Washington wants Russia and Damascus to be investigated over alleged war crimes in Syria, but when it comes to America’s own record of what is politely called ‘collateral damage,’ it’s not too keen to allow independent investigations.

Over decades of interventions, the Pentagon and its NATO allies have accumulated a long record of dubious actions, from attacking a television station in Serbia to using cancer-causing depleted uranium in Iraq and bombing an MSF-run hospital in Afghanistan, reports RT’s Gayane Chichakyan.

But Washington blocks independent investigations of such incidents, and usually does so internally.
