Mosul & the War on Civilians: Terrorizing & Reducing Countries to Failed States

On this edition of The Geopolitical Report, we examine the recent killing of civilians in Mosul, Iraq. The strategy to murder innocent men, women, and children in the course of war dates back centuries, but was perfected during the Second World War and subsequent conflicts in Korea, Vietnam, and the Middle East. The establishment media has either ignored war crimes against civilians, or when it does it routinely blames al-Qaeda, the Islamic State, or other officially designated enemies, many acting as proxies for the Pentagon and the United States. While the technology has changed and become far more effective and deadly, the original philosophy remains the same — terrorizing target populations and reducing countries to failed states.

    Good report, but this edition seems a little rushed. The graphic on 12:40 is off, and there are several other minor aesthetic issues I noticed (like repeating the same RPA flight line footage at 14:14 and 14:33). All of that aside–I love your work. Thank you for helping to teach us. I’m a big fan.

    Maybe Spiro need sleep? Overworking leads to inefficiency.
