How many times have we been through this scenario and routine already? The Russkies, Arabs, any Dark regime commit an atrocity, cover it up and then invite in inspectors. The Russkies have been doing this since the 1940 Katyn (Polish) massacre, they’re experts.
How many times did the League of Nations and then UN condemn some event, visit the site, write a report and...zilch!?
