Mosul Apocalypse, emancipation US-style:
The way media reports it, Iraqi civilians like this man & small children, are fleeing ISIS fighters in Mosul. They don’t report US-coalition bombing, including with white phosphorous, or the mortars & rockets from Iraqi & Kurdish ground forces.
Bombing civilians is the way of wars of conquest. Bombing civilians is not emancipation.
The only principled antiwar demand is the immediate cessation of bombing & the immediate, unconditional withdrawal of all US-coalition & foreign military forces from Iraq & Syria. If they want to stop ISIS, cut off their arms supply routes & stop delivering weapons to them
