      That's right, poking the face of the Americans in international law. Remind them and everyone else about it.

        The Yankees on the blue eye are absolutely sure that they all do this according to the law, and we do not. Because we are not bombing those whom they consider necessary.

        True, they put the already mentioned body on international law. But! But for us this is not an empty phrase: they called us - we came. And who called them?

    On the one hand, we can simply not react to all sorts of attacks, all kinds of "products No. 2" - and continue to do our job in silence. We are right. On the other hand, if we remain silent, so much shit will be poured on us that we will simply choke and find ourselves also guilty. If we keep silent, we will be "married" without us. And here's the dilemma. And how the hell to be? It seems that we are doing everything right, but we are doing everything wrong! According to the State Department and other related structures.

    The Americans and their allies argue that we are not properly bombing and so on. We state the opposite. Who is right? And the one who presents the facts. But Americans, by their sweet habit (that's how the Inquisition used to be) - claims, without facts, that they are telling the truth. At least ask them for facts.

    So what am I leading to? Maybe it's time to act either like the Americans themselves and flood the airwaves with left-wing nonsense, or to act more harshly in relation to the "partners". And then our generals from the media only bleat and refer to international law. It can and is correct, but many people do not just sneeze - they do more negative things with it.

      Obolensky, the truth will always be true! And our truth is also with fists. Enough to consider our Western partners as a beacon of truth. Schullers are shameful!
