One Response to “The War in Syria”

  1. Richard Falk is so right in everything he says. My only wish is that he would add that all that mess, violence, suffering, waste of lives, money and time wouldn’t exist if we didn’t have machine guns, bullets, bombs, rockets, tanks, etc. to sell.

    Same as a football commentator or analyst, whose explanations about the game would be futile if there was no ball for the players to compete.
