Ah, I was joking… But the Israel/Palestine situation is the elephant in the room here. Iran wants a strong foothold in Syria via Assad. We all know what Iran’s position is on Israel. Israel’s settlements policy only makes the situation worse.
As usual, it’s terrible that innocent civilians in Syria (and Yemen) are, yet again, bearing the brunt of a proxy war between the USA and Russia.
Again, I must emphasise, that colonialism by Western and Northern European regal forces in the 18th and 19th centuries is the root of what is going in here. The worst involved were the French and the British.
