Another gem.

The argument I’m making here is not one of “whataboutism”, but that the only realistic choices available to a military confronting insurgent forces which capture territory and refuse to allow the civilian population to flee are either (1) siege and bombing, with inevitable civilian casualties, or (2) capitulation.[1]
This is a gem because the reliance on common sense is so glaring, as is the proper refusal to accept that any group can declare its opposition to any government and then get a free pass to the presidential palace while the existing government sits back and surrenders to the New Team.
