Heartbreaking to see what's happening in Syria.
When will we ever learn, when will we ever learn.
Is the a parrot in the house?
When deciding which conflicts to get involved in, we says 'heads' then toss a double headed coin.
When I said when will we ever learn I'm refering to mankind.
Well, in that case, never unfortunately.
Yes, we learn very quickly. We say "does it have any major financial interest to us?". Namely oil.
If Syria was brimming with the black stuff like Libya, the US and plenty others would have armed the rebels to the teeth from day one. Fact is it is a very low producing country. Thus the very slow approach to any kind of help.
You just have to look at Somalia, Yemen and the likes that have had civil war for decades. There is no money there. they have no major resources, so we do not get involved.
(Only now, due to terrorist activity do we take an interest)
