Our double standards re Mosul and Aleppo are quite chilling and quite frankly, inexplicable. The West started all of this. We deposed Saddam Hussein, Mubarak and Gadhafi. Our clueless politicians were cheerleaders for the Arab Spring, which wiser heads deemed the Koranic Winter. We kick-started Isis. We gave hope to the terrorist "rebels" in Syria that we would help them depose Assad. We interfere everywhere whilst never understanding Islam. And witless journalists just pour fuel on the all too predictable Islamic inferno.
