The “victory” in Mosul

The consequences of US war crimes continue
The news media is cheering the “victory” in Mosul.
Two things missing from the story:
1. The original US invasion of Iraq was an illegal and unjustified act of war, a war crime
2. ISIS would never have existed if the US hadn’t destabilized Iraq (and then there’s the question of who funded and trained ISIS in the first place.)
Jimmy Dore lays it out:
