It’s not ‘good guy’ ‘bad guy’ at all. The hypocrisy is somebody who won’t condemn Assad’s use of CW or even the Russian/Syrian carpet bombing for example but is happy to criticise KSAs use of weapons bought from the West in their ‘little war’. Same on supplying weapons to the Houthi’s, ignored but ‘the West’ supplying KSA is bad.Spot on. Hypocrisy.
I intellectually understand the realpolitik reasons for our association with the Saudis, as pointed out by @Graculus
But I don't buy into the good guy bad guy stuff as I get the impression @scalieback does. Although I may be wrong in characterising him in such terms.
Different shades of grey
KSA on the face of it look like they have made a mistake. I sincerely hope it is investigated and at the very least compensated and blame apportioned. The same should apply to Russian and Syrian claims in Syria. However, Russia still denies any civcas bizarrely. The Coalition in Syria and Iraq have had civcas. They investigate and if culpable admit guilt and compensate.
I’ve no problem with KSA held to task by the same posters who also criticise Russian and Syrian civcas. If they do not do both, that is hypocritical.
KSA clearly need help with their targeting. Perhaps ‘we’ should do something about that?
