Another escalation in the Middle East with the Iran backed drone attack. It seems we're on a slippery slope and it's very scary.

Where are the peace makers? nobody even seems to be trying any more. Is there any hope? Please be kind.

All of this is beyond our control OP. It is what it is.

Iranian backed terrorism is hardly a new subject.

Whatever will happen, it will be none of what the ordinary man and woman wanted. It will be all up to these crazy idiots up there , in power and worse, they are voted in some parts of the world

I have nothing productive to add but I agree. Every day seems closer and closer to something terrifying. Trying to tell myself that things like this have happened in the past and it’s only now I have a child that I feel so scared about the future, but it’s hard to deny that everything is escalating very quickly.

Im not bothered either way.

Live your life and turn off your TV. All your fears will go away.

Mainstream TV has been telling lies for years and if you get sucked in then you will be living in fear all of the time.

Agree with this.

In the past you would have had no idea what was going on outside of your local area. Your biology is not designed to know every single last disaster that is happening in the world.

I agree. We don’t know half of what happens in the world. If we worried about everything we’d never get anything done or go anywhere

Agree with this. I stopped watching and following the news when the war in Ukraine started as I was getting so anxious. I feel so much better for it, but I do hear snippets about what's going on and it terrifies me. Better off not knowing.

If it’s going to happen we wont know anything so no point in worrying

stop watching the news, I have and I dont read papers about it either
