The Gaza strip is full of dead bodies as a result of the recent interchange between Hamas and Israel but the West sits and watches.

Afghanistan a country whose rule the west opposed is now full of dead bodies as a result of Western intervention. Ironically the West is now about to leave the country which in turn will see the return of Taliban rule.

Money is the only thing the governments of the west seem interested in, with oil being a key factor in that. How can a western country, whose problems at home – economic and social – really need sorting out. Europe doesn’t understand it’s neighbouring countries despite similar traits, however each country feel free to judge, condemn and desperate to solve external crisis, as if being a good samaritan will alleviate any criticism back home.

Something needs to be done but I don’t think the West are necessarily the guardians they may claim to be.
