If you have ever experienced a riot, its surprising how calm things can be an hour before and even an hour after the event.. The appearance of the capital city, or tourist areas thriving and making money, doesn't reflect in how the people are living and how much they're are happy to maintain the fiction.Don't forget Libya and Yemen That would be quite some oversight.
Before being illegally bombed/ invaded all these states were doing just fine.
Please don't forget that either.
They didn't ask to be invaded, killed and pillaged, it was forced upon them- every time.
