    The centuries-old phrase "kill them all, let God sort them out" has apparently just received a new meaning from the US military, which has narrowed it down to "kill them all, what's the difference?" with their recent strikes on the Syria-Iraqi border.

    Make No Difference

    What was reported on 11 March sounded like American forces stationed in Baghdad were tired of trying to figure out who had been shelling them almost every night, instead striking both a base belonging to the Iraqi Popular Mobilisation Forces as well as, apparently, a Syrian security checkpoint… on the other side of the border. Did they do this just to make sure that the bad guys were punished, or because it makes literally no difference to them who they bomb?
