    Remember with a kind word Saddam, Gaddafi, Mubarak, those leaders of the old generation who kept the region in relative stability. When a stupid crowd abused them, everyone apparently expected further prosperity. No way, then only corpses. Including those who rejoiced.

      Absolutely agree. I add that all this happened not without the help of the USSR. Our power was alive - there was peace. And what can be for any normal person more valuable than the world?

    All this happens according to the pattern ...

    Customer ... organizer ... performer ... victim.
    Then again the same thing is repeated along the knurled chain.
    Maybe the Iraqi authorities need to concentrate on liquidating the customer ... then the other links in this chain will no longer work.

      Everyone knows the customer, but for its liquidation it is necessary to set his own performer - ISIS.

      And this is not the point of the explosion of the Treasury. Maybe not the US bombed him?

    It was not just a stupid crowd, but an action planned by the Anglo-Saxons, almost the same as on the Maidan. By the way, leaflets distributed in such hot places are printed in one printing house.

    There you have the external government, and flirting with the igil to the heap! Until Iraq becomes an independent and independent state, and it never will be, the United States will not be allowed, blood will flow like water.

      This hand has long been felt around the world. Americans, as usual, think to sit out overseas and believe that they are not affected by what they brewed. They think so in vain. Very soon, they will feel for themselves all the charms of that "democracy" that they carried to the Middle East, North Africa, Yugoslavia, Ukraine.

    Young children think that they are above the laws, change the laws for themselves, do what they want and at the same time forget that their generation can hit them. In Europe, this has already happened.

    I agree.

    There is no need to go far, an example of Chechnya is at hand. Clans shared power, people died. Supported by the Kadyrov clan, he managed to stabilize the situation. Near Ingushetia, the heat is slowly being removed, people of the world want it, and he also jacked in Africa .....

    In the east, elders decided everything, and fools from behind the hillock decided to control the process, they already have a result, soon Europe will be shaken with terrible force, and the Yankees will maliciously count the profits.
