The surgery was a success but the patient died.

More than 40,000 civilians were killed in the devastating battle to retake Mosul from Isis, according to intelligence reports revealed exclusively to The Independent – a death toll far higher than previous estimates.

Residents of the besieged city were killed by Iraqi ground forces attempting to force out militants, as well as by air strikes and Isis fighters, according to Kurdish intelligence services.

Civilian casualties are a non-entity when your government is the doing the killing. Think MSM coverage of Yemen. When the ‘bad’ guys are doing the killing-figure times ten. Kosovo being the best recent example.

Civilian deaths always outnumber military.

Be seeing you
