@GuyVerhofstadt you're right, but it's not new, we actually stepped down and watched it from our sofa for 5 years and now suddenly because it touch our shores we care about it ? we couldn't be more hypocrites.
Also I'm not hearing you or most EU politicians much less the national level politicians talk rightly on the cause of this mess, it's like its considered a 'natural disaster' when it's absolutely not !
we created this mess, we allowed it, we participated either by our disastrous non foreign policy OR by factually avoid to confront #Assad already in 2011 or more broadly by supporting US foreign policy and geopolitical self-serving interests.
what was Europe thinking ? that we would bow to US foreign policy indefinitely and that would not have an impact on our shores ? it's easy for US, easy to avoid paying the price of it's own quagmire.
When is Europe going to refocus on build it's own foreign policy & it's own upholding of fundamental rights ?
bombing for peace never worked, selling weapons to so called rebels/fighters/freedomfighters has turned out to be a mess for western foreign policy, it's almost if we end up giving weapons to future enemies provided they use these weapons against our short-term vision present "enemy".
We cannot avoid talking about our own role or lack or role into this quagmire.
if we are to survive as "Europe".
