Subject: RE: Manchester Explosion May 22, 2017
Discussing this seriously and attempting to work out why these things happen is the only way I can think of to ascertain they don't continue to happen.
I lived in Manchester for four years and still have friends there
I lived through the London bombing campaign during 'The Troubles' and have a relative who had part of her hand blown away by a loyalist bomb - I also have relatives who were driven out of the British North of Ireland for being "the wrong religion".
Whoever is responsible for these things, much of them are being caused by policies carried out in our name.
I think it's well beyond the time that we started taking Ireland, Afghanistan, Syria..... seriously rather than only expressing sympathy and taking sides.
Not sure if it's that that you are getting at.
