    How did Syria destabilize so easily? Because terrorist poured in freely from Iraq.

    Why did they pour freely from Iraq? Because that country is a lawless he!!hole.

    Why is that country a lawless he!!hole?

    Any attacks and death that may come your way are your own doing. You won't get anyone's pity this time. Live with the consequences of your acts. You think you can play Armchair Strategist from London waging wars and changing governments as you see fit, well no more. Whatever you do anywhere, in today's world will come back to burn your ass-hairs back in your own home. And well deserved.

    Next time, don't screw up anyone else's lives! Read what Jesus and Confucius said about “Do not what you...”
