Is U.S. bombing of Afghan hospital a war crime?


As i was checking U.S based news (CNN), i was in disgust by the first glimpse of this topic.Is U.S. bombing of Afghan hospital a war crime? "Bombing a hospital" and then rendering something like "Is it a crime?".

They have also used this phrase Doctors without Borders many-time which i thought was irrelevant and extremely annoying.


Can the hospital bombing be considered a war crime? Doctors without Borders says the hospital was bombed for more than half an hour after it notified NATO and U.S. officials that the facility was under attack.

In this case, according to Kay, the hospital bombing would be justified, and not considered a war crime, only if there was a clear, imminent or ongoing attack at the hospital.


Slowly clarifying the terms and conditions that bombing hospital might not even considered as a war crime. They have also stated that the "laws do recognize that mistakes happen in the fog of war".

I read all the # from top to bottom and honestly found this # a full of #.

It is a war crime under those circumstances.And DWB is an organization made up of the some of the finest specialists in the world who get together and go to different countries....on their own dime.

Doctors Without Borders, or Medicines Sans Frontieres, is an organisation of doctors and medical professionals who allot a chunk of their time annually to going out to nations and locations where medical assistance is required en masse, but where there is little or no infrastructural support in that location, and offering the benefit of their expertise to save lives, heal treatable sicknesses, avoid preventable infant mortality, inoculate at risk groups from transmissible diseases, and so on.

It is not a phrase, but a body of people who selflessly throw themselves into bad places, to ensure that suffering is lessened wherever it can be.


Now, as for whether this is a war crime or not, that will likely come down to some nonsense point of law. Ultimately though, the rules of war need to change, such that NO hospital may be attacked with ordnance, and any force holed up in that building may only be attacked by way of ground assault, snipers, and low collateral assault methods of that sort.

Doesn't matter even If it is a war crime the USA doesn't recognise the ICC who would deal with it.

Exactly! They seriously needs to apply new or different execution system that these kind of clouts on Human rights never ever take place again.

They are all the same. Whoever owns their asses gets to have their agenda reflected. Like with Murdoch, all his media has to reflect his political leanings, etc. Even RT are just as bad. One can't broadcast a word of criticism about Putin on that channel.

Media really is in la la land. It is not an accurate reflection of reality; current affairs being one of the worst offenders.

We are all expected to rally around the media source that represents best our own point of view. Personally, I don't rally around any of them. They are all too status quo (and really bad at playing quality true blues (little joke)). ATS is my best shot because everyone has a voice here if they care to use it.

Perhaps, though, if you were a multi billionaire media mogul would you not want to play Citizen Kane with your newspaper or news channel?
