Some people [and nations too] have long memories. Within the context of the cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris France being devastated by fire there is an indirect military dimension? Strange but true?
"Everything has consequences, heavenly cycles, retribution. This applies to both people and country! I only feel awe for karma, and it has nothing to do with morality."
"Karma - - means action, work or deed; it also refers to the spiritual principle of cause and effect where intent and actions of an individual (cause) influence the future of that individual (effect)."
"Some Chinese nationalists see justice for Summer Palace razing in Notre Dame fire"
DURING THE SECOND OPIUM WAR OF 1860 FRENCH TROOPS HAVING BURNED THE SUMMER PALACE OF THE CHINESE EMPEROR.

READ THE WHOLE EPISODE OF INVADING BRITISH AND FRENCH TROOPS DURING THE SECOND OPIUM WAR SACKING AND DESTROYING THE SUMMER PALACE OF THE CHINESE EMPEROR. LOOT AND TREASURE AS SEIZED IMMENSE.
Again, some persons and nations for that matter have long memories. It is often suggested that the Battle of Tannenberg  during World War One retaliation for the defeat of the Teutonic Knights FIVE HUNDRED YEARS EARLIER at the Battle of Grunewald!!
