From Turkey to France. Nice’s aftermath.

Retaliation For Nice? France Bombs 120 Civilians In Syria – OpEd

We may be left asking the obvious couple of questions. Why do 120 innocent Syrian civilians deserve to die because 84 innocent French civilians were killed in a terrorist attack? And how does France expect to avoid further blowback for its aggressive Middle East policy if it continues to provide endless recruiting narratives? (Ron Paul Institute).
