Paris and the world.

I believe that the US, Europe, Russia, and China should suspend commercial relations with the 4 major financial backers of terrorist groups. Those backers are known to be Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates. At the same time, I believe the UN should coordinate financial and manpower efforts to rebuild those areas that have been devastated by conflict for the last 30 years. If individual governments want to send strike teams after significant targets, that's reasonable.

But there is no fucking excuse for bombing civilians.

I am 35 years old. I was born in 1980. My entire life has been this cycle. Iran-Contra. Desert Storm. Bosnia/Herzegovina. 9/11. Muhajideen. Taliban. Al-Qaeda. Daesh. War and killing and reaction and outrage and hate. I grew up with Eastern European and Middle Eastern refugees. I do not remember a time when the world was not this.

I want to.
