      Oh yeah. Life there means nothing. Better a sand fly than human there.

    • Only bad guys have guns, cause they have no right for civilians to bear arms.
      That is why Aleppo feel so easily, people had no means to defend themselves, and paid solders are always corrupt cowards and run so they can keep collecting their pay checks.
      ISIS could have never conquered Denver CO USA, 1,000,000 gun owners could exterminate 30,000 ISIS members inside of 48 hours haha.
      Marxist conquered Russians and Moscow and then genocided 45,000,000 indigenous Russians, cause they had no right to defend themselves from governments haha.
