The “civilized” West dispenses with massive crocodile tears as Ancient Silk Road pearl of the desert Palmyra falls to ISIS/ISIL/Daesh.

 Yet neither US President Barack Obama nor any of the 22 heavily weaponized nations/vassals theoretically part of his coalition of the willing sent at least a single Hellfire missile-equipped drone against the black-clad fake Caliphate goons.

A case can still be made that the “civilized” West would rather deal with a medieval, intolerant Wahhabi-drenched Caliphate than with a secular Arab “dictator that refuses to prostrate himself in the altar of Western neoliberalism.”

In parallel, the case has already been made that those who weaponize the beheaders and throat-slitters of Al-Nusra, aka al-Qaeda in Syria, or ISIS/ISIL/Daesh are essentially Saudis – the largest importers of weapons on the planet — who buy mostly from the US but also from France and the UK.
