Here is a little bit of ugly truth for you, dear Americans:

Independent:
In the case of Mosul, unlike Aleppo, the defenders are to blame for endangering civilians by using them as human shields and preventing them leaving. In East Aleppo, fortunately, there are no human shields – though the UN says that half the civilian population wants to depart – but simply innocent victims of Russian savagery.
Compare the coverage of Mosul and East Aleppo and it reveals a lot
--
"Mosul is being bombed daily from B-52H American strategic bombers, F/A-18 bombers based on USS Dwight D. Eisenhower aircraft carrier and from Rafaele M base on the French aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle. In the past day alone, the coalition warplanes flied 25 sorties and delivered 21 air strikes on the city and its suburbs," .

Meanwhile, the Russian and Syrian warplanes "have performed no flights in Aleppo for more than two weeks,"

"In Mosul, by a strange coincidence, there are no journalists, activists or volunteers in ‘white’ or any other shade ‘helmets’. Nobody. That is why, all what American and European TV channels can allow to broadcast is cheerful censored reports about extraordinary successes of the coalition and future great victory over terrorists, not substantiated by real footage,"
Russian defense ministry says situation in Iraqi Mosul is nothing like in Syria's Aleppo

Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator, Stephen O'Brien - Statement on Iraq:

Stephen O’Brien: I am extremely concerned for the safety of up to 1.5 million people living in Mosul who may be impacted by military operations to retake the city from ISIL. Families are at extreme risk of being caught in cross-fire or targeted by snipers. Tens of thousands of Iraqi girls, boys, women and men may be under siege or held as human shields. Thousands may be forcibly expelled or trapped between the fighting lines. Children, women, the elderly and disabled will be particularly vulnerable.

Why are the Western "human rights defenders" so silent...

But but but as long as the paratroopers are still floating in the air Obama can claim he didn't break his promise of "no US boots on the ground right"?
