Frankrijk is zo dom geweest om voor deze illusie de levens van zijn eigen burgers in gevaar te brengen.
Below, you see an interview with Andrew Bacevich - professor in history at the Boston university, a greaduate of West Point with 23 years of experience as military and during this period he reached the rank of Colonel - in which he gives his opinion about the role of the USA in the Syrian war. During this interview he sais: 'When you think back on the actual history of the US in the middle east over the past several decades, victory is exceedingly hard to come by. We’re always stronger (…) than the advisory. But somehow being strong doesn’t translate into political objectives being achieved (…). What actual happens is that the projection of American power leads to unexpected complications and gets us more deeply embedded in a set of circumstances that we can’t handle. There are (…) powers of change that have come to the surface and are transforming that part of the world. We have claimed (…) that we possess the capacity to somehow direct or control these processes of change. Even though the truth is that we don’t have that capacity. The truth is that we are largely irrelevant in that part of the world.'
France has been that stupid to endager the lives of its own citizens for this illusion.
