10. None. Absolutely no moral ground whatsever...
And I was thinking about posting a thread on this very topic.

We forged evidence to justify an invasion of Iraq. We lied to, maimed, stole from, and murdered Iraqi civilians. We allowed over 4,000 of our own troops to be killed; 10,000s to be injured. All for a lie...

We have no moral ground to criticize the Russians. None whatsoever...

Thanks for posting this thread.
