The hypocrisy (The hypocrite, as Jesus defined it in the Gospels, is one who does not apply to himself the standard he applies to others) of the US political elite, which condemns the recent death of children allegedly at the hands of forces of the Assad government in Syria while turning a blind eye to their own heinous crimes against civilians in Syria and Iraq, is truly a blinding case of “American exceptionalism”!

The United Nations says more than 300,000 Iraqi civilians have fled Mosul amid the ongoing U.S. and Iraqi militaries’ offensive to retake the city from ISIS. The journalistic monitoring group Airwars reports U.S.-led coalition airstrikes have reportedly killed and injured more civilians in recent days. One U.S.-led coalition strike on the Yarmouk neighborhood of west Mosul reportedly killed three members of the same family on Sunday. Another strike, believed to be carried out by the U.S.-backed Iraqi military, reportedly hit a funeral procession in the Farouk neighborhood, also on Sunday. Airwars says U.S.-led coalition airstrikes reportedly killed hundreds of civilians in Mosul last month, including airstrikes on March 17 that killed up to 200 civilians.”
