        controlled chaos. logic is simple. a country with natural resources (oil) in which there is no stability and security, is in a state of "conservation" so that unnecessary competitors do not twitch.

      Somalia! The same thing started with the peddlers of democracy ... The USA is a real commercial project with a criminal bias started by the founding fathers, who for the most part were slave owners, adventurers and smugglers, an ebony “tree”, etc., 300 years ago.

        But do not forget the French, who made their "feasible" contribution to the collapse of this country.
        at least 276 people died, more than 300 were injured
        The inhabitants of this country can only once again say "thank you" to "civilized democracy."

          All of them are Western bullshit -
          fucking colonialists: expressive mattresses, prim Anglo-Saxons, fluffy paddling pools, black-shirts pasta and brown fascists!

          All of them will reward for their labors!

      Religious fanaticism and ordinary malice. For contractors and customers, injured and killed are not human. Let someone say that terrorism and religion are incompatible things. As some liberal personalities like to argue.

      It has always been interesting what psychopaths, geeks, nonhumans deserve, including those cultivating and using fanatic terrorists around the world, and not reckoning with any human victims for the sake of their pathological aspirations to gain and maintain power.

    There, in my opinion, no one remembers for a long time when and for what they began to fight among themselves recourse .A civilians who died are naturally a pity. Him and their families, condolences.

    And everything would be so .... only the attack happened yet THE DAY BEFORE YESTERDAY .
    Such "examples" very vividly illustrate the real value of life and the "equality" of people about whom it’s customary to indulge everyone.
    In any news publication that I periodically look at this news did not even get on the front page, think of 200 (according to preliminary estimates) more than Somalis, whether people are insects ...

    The result of government by lawlessness is piracy on the sea and terror on the land. The culprits of a hotbed of terrorism - a government where people are starving, there is all kinds of scum.

    Although I am not a liberal person, but a very authoritarian one, I will answer you. From religion to terrorism - as from love (for any religion teaches love) to hatred (of which terrorism is a clot) is really one step. But this is a step into the abyss.
    Religion teaches love, but living in love is extremely difficult for people, how to live in freedom. Therefore, rules, prohibitions, various interpretations and disputes begin. But the essence - an uncomplicated essence - I wrote about it to you now.
