    France began its war against ISIS on September 30 by bombing and strafing numerous targets in Syria. Many hundreds of non-combatant Syrians have died or been seriously injured as a result. These deaths and injuries are called "collateral damage of war" and have not even been acknowledged, let alone mourned, in the West. The attacks in Paris were no more barbaric than the French attacks in Syria. But then...all acts of war are barbaric. Let us mourn all the dead who die needlessly in war, but let's remember who started this one.
