Wallerstein on Ukraine

Immanuel Wallerstein has an interesting ending to his latest post on ISIS. See http://www.iwallerstein.com/the-caliphate-vs-everyone-else/

“As I write this, the Kiev government is resisting the entry of Russian trucks that the Russians say is a humanitarian mission to aid the trapped and suffering inhabitants of Lugansk, which is surrounded by Ukrainian troops seeking to starve them into surrender. Is this truly different from the efforts of the Caliphate to starve the Yazidis on their mountain top into submission? If the United States and western Europe are in favor of humanitarian aid in one place, can they sustain the position of being against it in the other?”
