I made a similar point in another article stating that people in the west is living in a bubble and immune from the actions of their governments. Sooner or later, the daily bombing that takes place in non-western areas will come back to haunt Europe. I don’t condone violence, but we need to understand why it is happening. For example, Saddam was a bad person but at least Iraqis didn’t had to worry about car bombs and suicide bombers at their places of worship and markets. Now daily bombings is a fact of life for the majority of Iraqis.

The US wants Syria’s territorial integrity maintained? Lmfao!! Isn’t it a little late for that?? US is supporting the breakup and partitioning of Syria by arming “moderate” rebels to overthrow the government and carve out parts of Syria as their own. The US ignores the elected government of Syria and instead installs its own.
