We, and I’m speaking of humanity in general, are deep inside a quagmire, one of our own making. There are wars and rumors of wars in the middle-east, and a flood of refuge’s fleeing, bombs, bullets and destruction knocking on the door of Europe and looking for a better life. As of now the wise heads of the world, (and I use the term loosely) have not come up with an answer, or a solution, other than to use more bombs, bullets, and death. They have chosen to create more destruction, more desperation, instead of trying to come to a political solution.
We in the west have always presumed that our way is the only way, our form of government is the best, and that one size of democracy fits all, but in truth it doesn’t.
This great tribulation in middle-eastern countries just didn’t start yesterday, or in our lifetime, not by a long shot. Just as you can trace the unrest in Africa to colonialism, you can trace the turbulence in Syria and other countries directly to the Sykes–Picot Agreement made between November 1915 and March 1916.
Now we have dug ourselves so deep, we can’t find a way out.
