17. France among others, supported jihadis to overthrow Gadaffi

and are now trying to do the same to Assad.

That doesn't mean the people of Paris deserve what happened and I personally have never done the whole "we deserve it" spiel. We don't deserve it. I don't even buy into the concept of "blowback". It doesn't need to be an issue either.

But it's predictable that if you give weapons to jihadis, take away stabililizing governments, then leave your borders open to masses of people unchecked, then the jihadis are going to come back and attack you.
