Subject: RE: BS: Mass murder of defenceless civilians
Actually, Jim, I'm going to take you at your word, if I understood it correctly, that you would "respond later" to my N.Korea S.Korea inquiry as asked in detail on 19 April at 4:00 PM and go on to what I think of everytime I see the thread title: 'Mass murder of defenceless civilians'.

North of Mosul there is a large sink-hole. Reports have come in that uncounted civilians have been tossed in by ISIS. The Iraqi military with American support is trying to recover this city of a million residents after its rapid and well-nigh unaccountable loss to the rapid ISIS onslaught of 2014. ISIS has administered the city since and made the citizens their fodder. They are preyed upon in every way imaginable and now, under the current attempt to re-take the city by the Iraqi government, they are hostages and also an escape route (as ISIS masquerade as civilians if necessary). ISIS has no limits on what they can or will do people under their control. ISIS lives and fights among them so there is no way to attack ISIS fighters without likewise endangering civilians.

This is not unlike what happened during the Korean War. Only it's happening as I type this message. Our leaders are making decisions on what happens to these peoples' lives right now.
