We have one for Ukraine, should we open up one for this topic as well?

Worth starting with both Al-Jazeera’s and The Guardian’s liveblogs on the conflict…

The Times’s finding does not answer what actually did cause the Al-Ahli Arab Hospital blast, or who is responsible.

The other place just had a discussion on the war itself, and they ended up deciding basically that the only thing we should post there are facts rather than diatribing ourselves? But so far, I’m not sure how that’s all gonna be parsed out? But some keep posting pretty inflammatory stories meant to stoke anger from right wing sources, often just uncritically.
