Ultimately became a suicide bomber…..
One of the main reasons has got to be that this guy was bullied, and it was bottled up for a long time without justice, but in any case this isn’t worth taking your life for it.
To sooth the hatred in your heart, blow up your enemy…….niu“

“Those who sit on someones neck and take a shit will sooner or later get what they deserve!”
How are people in this society this heartless.”
If someone didn’t use their power to steal [the family’s] land, causing a conflict that got way out of hand, who would want to blow up their own relatives?

Money and power has stripped China of all it’s morals, ethics, and [familial] affection!”
“You reap what you sow” is the simplest philosophy for life. Good people follow a “Create more good, do less bad” ideal. By making, respecting, and carrying out common rules and regulations, we can resolve all kinds of problems and conflicts. Otherwise, what else would this world have other than bloody massacre? Hate begets hate, “Kill 1000 enemies, lose 800 comrades”, maybe in the end humanity will go extinct by killing itself off.”
I find this kind of stuff only happens in the countryside! ! !”
These are all crazy people, unaccomplished, immoral people, people with the lowest class…they have never thought about how their own family members will have to face this in the future…
Don’t bully people, especially those the that hold a grudge, because retribution might come back to you tenfold.
