    I do not understand one thing
    The world knows exactly where the terrorists, their leaders and their weapons, why not kill them??,
    Perhaps the governments of Europe and America do not realize how dangerous to leave things in the hands of crazy extremists
    What are you waiting for?? Thousands of people die?? Is not it better to kill some maniacs and prevent disasters in the world??
