    For it to be an accident would require that the Russians acknowledge there's any difference between the various rebel groups and ISIS.
    Complicating things since 2009.

    Russia is directly and purposefully attacking the rebels.
    They've been nonchalantly causing lots of civilian casualties in the process however.

    Right, so as long as we keep that in perspective this error on the U.S's part doesn't look that bad.

    Of course, naturally no one will really publicize that comparison.

    So at the UN meeting that Russia called, Russia walked out because we called them out on making a publicity stunt.

    I realize this. Which is why the US "accidentally" bombing the regime is breaking the ceasefire. You sure are hung up on Russia being a propaganda machine while blindly trusting the US and blatantly biased news sources in the US. That being said I picked one of the first news sites to post here and didn't realize I was posting "Russian propaganda".

    lol you're clearly still not aware of this if you still think the ceasefire has anything to do with what happened. Russia's not even bitching about any breaking of the ceasefire, they're accusing the US of helping ISIS. ISIS, which in both reality and the sentence you're quoting, is not part of any ceasefire. Deir Ezzor has never been subject of the ceasefire as its not involving any of the ceasefire parties fighting each-other.

    Also I love how the US, which has been so resistant to bombing the regime even when it should have (like say, after the first chemical weapons attacks it committed that Obama described as a red line..then did nothing)? Will totally randomly bomb them out of nowhere in a really obvious way that achieves nothing aside from partly maybe helping ISIS in a small backwater city. Yeah that makes a lot of fucking sense.

    You sure are hung up on Russia being a propaganda machine


    Its only been a matter of countless thousands of studies and articles that Russia runs an incredibly sophisticated propaganda operation both internally and externally on a multi-media level in a variety of languages. Up to and including it being a department of government that hasn't seen cuts even in their severe financial strain.
    But sure yeah, its this one internet guy in a tizzy or something.
    Questioning this like you are is like up and saying "Yeah I pretty much don't pay attention at all".
    while blindly trusting the US and blatantly biased news sources in the US.
    hahaha, Russia is an authoritarian state you fuckin' dipshit. That immediately disqualifies its STATE RUN MEDIA (did you even realize RT, Sputnik etc are state run?) from consideration of credibility.
    You don't have a thimble of awareness of anything going on, you don't get to attempt to argue about what a credible source is.
    But of course I'm giving you WAY too much credit to not be able to pick up that RT is propaganda trash just from reading it.
    A news sites with headlines that are indistinguishable from OP-ED article titles? Hmm! Naw, seems fine to me durrrrrrrrrrrrr

    Pre-2014 a person could be forgiven for being confused, but in the past four years?
    Oh and if Trump gets elected RT will start doing plenty of America defending, so like all Useful Idiots you will be jerked around from night to day by the lovingly crafted bullshit you consume and probably not even stop to think "Wait a second..".

    That being said I picked one of the first news sites to post here and didn't realize I was posting "Russian propaganda".


    Oh neat, so we're not even regularly reading RT, we're just a guy googling shit who also thinks he knows the issue enough to argue it? Sharp.

    This is after a bunch of bombs were discovered along a marathon route in Jersey earlier today.

    I... ugh. Why do most news outlets suck so badly now? Even my local radio station decided to only report on the bombings and their new documentary about how cyberbullying affects young women exclusively.

    People shouldn't deliberately ignore 50% of the population, especially when those people are a news organization who neglect their duty to inform the public on other issues at the same time. See Robby's and my post above.

    Thank god for the internet as some news stations seem to think everyone wants to hear them talk about the same thing for the entirety of their broadcasts or for the first 15 minutes and nothing else other than the weather.

    Focusing on a broad issue within a specific demographic is not ignoring everyone else. What if there were documentaries specifically dealing with bullying in the gay community, or the Muslim community, or the Hispanic community? Are those documentaries ignoring all other bullying incidents outside of those communities or are they just a more detailed account of bullying within certain paramaters?

    To ignore something is to refuse to acknowledge its existence. Focusing on a specific group does not mean they don't recognize bullying goes on far beyond the group they're focusing on.

    And if you're wondering the reason why a person might take the time to focus on a specific group rather than bullying in general, well, you only learn so much about a problem focusing on the overview. You want to really learn about a subject and how it affects different people? You get into specifics.

    Do you also complain when Lung Cancer charities don't cover Pancreatic Cancer. Because this is a super nonsense point your making.
