Where are all the #IStandWithMosul hashtags? Half the city is now completely besieged and being relentlessly pounded with airstrikes. Remind you of anywhere? Yeah, Aleppo. You sure CARED when the exact same thing happened there. Or at least you PRETENDED to. Because, now that US jets are raining down bombs on areas with more than double the population of East Aleppo, you’re saying NOTHING. Where are your cries of ‘genocide’ and ‘ethnic cleansing’ now that government troops are retaking a city overrun by armed extremists? Where’s the viral civilian casualties social media campaign? Nothing. You know what, keep turning the other way. Because your silence is golden. And speaks much louder than lousy hashtags.
