Very much into the "Blame Game" now, I see.
Warwick, as always, is seeing much deeper into the flow of events that have bought us to this situation. From my point of view it is an absolute bugger to attempt to unpick.
I'm in no way inferring that any observations are devoid of truth, but I'm not going to rush to take sides, & unless you are liking the idea of a direct nuclear armed super power conflict, purely based around diametrically opposed ideology's, I would suggest a little reflection too. What I do realise is that Syria & it's peoples, & that includes the refuges, are symptomatic of a far deeper malaise. Warwick has discussed this on other topics here on this board in connection with the world economy, & obvious failings in it's underlying structure, well to a concerned few anyway.
An analogy might be, shouting "fight, fight, fight..." as the two school bullies square off to bash each other. What harm in that? They don't have any recourse to reason, but a pig headed belief that they are right & will do anything to prove it. What's more it's not the "Play Ground", it's your own living room & you are standing right in the middle!!!!
