I may have mentioned to you: I was in Armenia in 2012 when this US mess in Syria was just starting. There were many Armenians from Syria in Armenia starting to take refuge, wondering if they could ever go home again (there are countless more today). They would ask: why is the US government doing this to our country?
Why does a rat dig in the trash? Same question, same answer: it is its nature.
