Can All Those Military Bombs Change This Sentiment?

This is not a stadium full of terrorists folks! These are mainstream, ordinary citizens, just out to watch a game. But you'd better turn down your volume if you want to hear them express sympathy for France by participating in "a moment of silence," because they're not having any of it. How many minds in that stadium have the bombs (in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria, Palestine, Lebanon, Yemen) changed? Maybe that lack of silence is the result of our military policies. Are we making the world safer, or actually just making more people angry?
