There is a concerted effort by the West to highlight Russian atrocities in Syria and gloss over its own, writes JOHN GREEN

WHAT both Syria and Iraq had in common before Western intervention was that they were both stable, secular countries pursuing an independent policy at variance with Western and Israeli interests.

They were also run by distasteful regimes that were not averse to using torture and assassinations in oppressing their own people. In the latter sense they were no different to Saudi Arabia and other despotic regimes in the Middle East and elsewhere.
