Perhaps both those things are wrong and should be rectified. Why only focus on what the media tells you to be outraged about in the current news cycle?

Why not draw parallels from the current tragedy to the past tragedy? Why continue a cycle of violence?

Anecdotally, it seems "whataboutism" is only applied in cases where a Western party is involved in some wrongdoing. Iran's regime is clearly in the wrong here, but are you really going to tell me the US regime isn't currently involved in some horrendous atrocity?
