We can really do without this tit-for-tat stuff, to be honest. Corbyn's stance is often correct, but that's not the same thing as him being a saint or some strategic god. It's because he's an inveterate 'other side of the coin' from US imperialism. One can do this without also handwaving bullshit and pretending there is no justice in anyone's position but your own.
In this case, I'm merely providing facts from another point of view, I'll concede that, again in this case, they substantiate Corbyn's opinion on the matter - originally held up for apparent ridicule and belittlement for reasons best known to the original poster. Has Corbyn ever been wrong about anything? Of course he has. Who hasn't? Should we blindly accept the opinions of others? Surely that would seem at odds with the very reason that this forum was created. I happen to believe that in the two horse race currently offered to the electorate via a crap voting system in desperate need of reform, Corbyn's Labour is by far a better choice than Johnson's Tories. Anybody else?
Maybe that belief clouded my judgement. Perhaps I was wrong to think that an internet forum was the place to share information and imply an opinion.

League tables for atrocities now, is it? Shall we do Hitler and Stalin next?
The phrases "The reality is that all sides have committed atrocities. Those of the Serbs are fully reported. Croatia's are less well reported but no less real."
and "If it is to retain any moral authority the international community must be seen to condemn all atrocities."
would seem, at first sight, to be at odds with your accusation. Or would Corbyn merely being on the committee that put those statements out be innocence by association?
Bedtime. Busy day leafleting ahead. Oops! There I go, virtue signalling again.
The greatest Hamlet of his generation, reduced to this.
