  1. Read “A Divine Madness”, think about the Torah’s warnings, and then you will see that ‘two days of US bombings’ of Syria is the raving of a psychopath who does not know what WAR is.
    He is not in control, will not be in control, and all the “world leaders” are not in control. Consider WW I, WW II and every “limited conflict” since then. Again, read and learn from “A Divine Madness”.
