I can't remember, either. I can remember clearly when the two Iraq wars started but not this one, nor Afghanistan. Incidentally, one story that I don't think Trump, May, Boris, Macron, MSM or ITK would want to remind us of is this one:

I think the whole thing started with that stupid Tunisian setting fire to himself. Arab Spring was, to some of us, Winter. Yes countries ruled by dictators needed radical reform but not violent revolution and the replacements were often worse than the dictators.

Re:Is it just me.. 1 Week, 3 Days ago  
A peaceful uprising against the president of Syria seven years ago has turned into a full-scale civil war. The conflict has left more than 350,000 people dead, devastated cities and drawn in other countries.

Even before the conflict began, many Syrians were complaining about high unemployment, corruption and a lack of political freedom under President Bashar al-Assad, who succeeded his late father Hafez in 2000.

In March 2011, pro-democracy demonstrations erupted in the southern city of Deraa, inspired by the "Arab Spring" in neighbouring countries.

When the government used deadly force to crush the dissent, protests demanding the president's resignation erupted nationwide.

The unrest spread and the crackdown intensified. Opposition supporters took up arms, first to defend themselves and later to rid their areas of security forces. Mr Assad vowed to crush what he called "foreign-backed terrorism".

My problem is that if the photographs or footage of it is upsetting I just turn over the page or channel.

I don't think you're alone Honey; indeed I sometimes wonder whether the entire thing is pantomime. Photos in Sunday Times clearly posed by models from Central Casting ("look sad, darling, you're meant to be dying from nerve gas not modelling makeup"), international politicians huffing and puffing ("it's the end of the world... a few missiles aimed at empty old airfields"), amazing Trump hates Putin (who got him elected)... oh yeah? Pull the other one; it's got bells on.

I did like the Times copy - "her sweater smelled like a swimming pool"... my God, that chlorine stuff is lethal. Lucky they didn't use it in Salisbury, trying to kill those poor Russians...
