War is war. And it's rather stupid to watch it as a movie from the sideline, as people do. ( I'm referring to the media, and websites like the one mentioned in the first post )

I am struggling to see the difference between this case and Bloody Sunday that occurred in the 1970s.

There has to be parity, either war is war and one accepts collateral damage. Or sovereign forces are to be held accountable for all deaths.
One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. "Which road do I take?" she asked. "Where do you want to go?" was his response. "I don't know", Alice answered. "Then", said the cat, "It doesn't matter.”

Good question. What would happen? China and Russia are not the most open about information in the first place. The countries that have had information released have been fairly open Western Democracies for the most part (though not just them). How would they react? Most likely, with flat out denial, which is what the others would be better suited to doing. Deny anything released, even if it's 110% true. Deny anything - hell, deny the stuff that is really true that you admitted to previously. Deny, deny, deny. Some might think covert ops against them or something like that. But you'd be surprised what simple denial can do.
