What a bloody mess….

Today, we now see a great divide in the world. In Europe we have the occupation of Crimea by Russia and a “civil” war in Ukraine. We have the collapse of Yemen with Iran and Saudi Arabia engaging in a proxy war. 5 years of civil war in Syria has seen the death of over 200,000 people, including nearly 11,000 children and nearly 7,000 women. The rise of ISIS has seen the deaths of thousands as militia from Syria, Turkey, Iraq, the Kurds, the Iraqi Army, Jordan, and west try to contain ISIS.

Due to this, we see the deaths of thousands of innocent people in these conflict zones. Trapped refugees, lack of food and the lack of action will only see the number dead rise and those in trouble will increase.

What we need to do is to start engaging in more balanced negotiations. The favouring of one side at whatever cost has never helped (Palestine and Israel) but prolonged the conflict and increased the possibility of it spreading.

To sum up, keep the west out of the middle east and Africa (militarily).
