The New Infant Islamic Empire

(or Khalifat) is merely doing what the British and the French did
when they seized large chunks of the world by force of arms,
assassination and 'gunboat diplomacy'.  It isa pity
but no surprise that the Western Powers
are so marvellous at crude hypocrisy
and so blind to history.

Tu quoque ("You also") is not a legal defense for anything, never a rationalization for injustice and cruelty. The Nazi defendants at Nuremberg used it again and again with accuracy and truth against the Allies, but the judges deemed the evidence inadmissible.

Being an Irishman, Auban appears to be extremely proficient in what his people call "whataboutery".

Thank you, EVIList !
