The Paris Attacks And The Endless Cycle Of Terror

France has already dispatched its aircraft carrier to the Middle East to intensify its air campaign in Syria and Iraq. Not enough mention is being made of the collateral damage that will come with the air strikes. Hospitals, schools, places of worship, wedding parties could be bombed out of existence.

But what will inevitably follow is the next round of violence, leading to further loss of life on both sides.
