Not quite the #2 I'd planned, but in checking on progress for Mosul, I noted RT (Russia Today) continually using the term "indiscriminate strikes" when describing US/allied shelling and street action. Among their continued "3rd party independent" verifiers of this was a group called "Airwars". Having no knowledge of this group, did a quick Google and came up with a number of links, including this Radio Free Europe (US government-funded) interview of the head of Airwars, Chris Woods. Surprising or not, Woods attributes much more civilian damage from the Russian air strikes - something you wouldn't gather from the RT report. Woods also uses a number of 900 US civilian deaths, about 40% of the RT figures of 2400 they ascribe to Airwars, though this may be the difference between deaths in Syria vs. those across Syria & Iraq (including Mosul, obviously).
Anyway, the war's being fought not just on the ground & in the air, but also in the daily reporting and linked social media. Caveat Lector.
Stay tuned for #3.
