This is brilliant analysis, forever being proven in the ongoing horrors of that which must be daily observed.
Just today, CNN finally gave some screen time to Yazidis summing up reportage by positing that no one could have predicted the horrors this community has experienced.
Actually, it was totally predictable unless you're just not looking and not caring, as BDY says, MSM of which CNN is stellar e.g., only cares about Palestinian treatment at Israeli hands.
The 2007 truck bombings in Iraq, the worst terror attack in aftermath of 2nd Iraq war, made it absolutely predictable that Yazidis would suffer extremely.
Sure it's not predictable when the actor most meant to predict it is either asleep on the job or busy fanning the flames of the seemingly perennial hate which is antisemitism.
