In Aleppo there was a tendency among Western reporters, certainly in the US, to point out Russia was leading the operation, so any civilian casualties and damage could be blamed on it, explains retired US Air Force Lieutenant Colonel Karen Kwiatkowski. Iraqi forces, backed by the US military, are pushing deeper into western Mosul to rid the city of Islamic State terrorists.
The UN says more than 150,000 residents have fled as the latest offensive enters its second month. As the battle for Mosul intensifies, more reports of civilian causalities are emerging.However, the plight of the civilian population caught in the crossfire seems to be under-reported in much of the mainstream media.RT: The human tragedy in Mosul is not getting anything like the same amount of media attention as last year’s operation in Aleppo. Why is that, do you think? Karen Kwiatkowski: In Aleppo, there was a tendency, or a desire among the Western reporters, certainly in the US, to point out that Russia was leading this and so any civilian casualties and damage done, destruction from missiles could be blamed; it had a political usefulness in the US, at least in terms of Washington pointing the finger at another country. I don’t think it makes the US look good, but I guess from their perspective somebody else was doing something that was causing a lot of humanitarian disasters.
