Paris under attack again - Page 14
I'm sure you mean the French, British, and American politicians who've carved up, destabilized and bombed the Middle East since the end of WWI. No?
Exactly. From a 2004 Defense Department report:
"In the eyes of Muslims, American occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq has not led to democracy there, but only more chaos and suffering. U.S. actions appear in contrast to be motivated by ulterior motives, and deliberately controlled in order to best serve American national interests at the expense of truly Muslim self-determination.
Therefore, the dramatic narrative since 9/11 has essentially borne out the entire radical Islamist bill of particulars. American actions and the flow of events have elevated the authority of the Jihadi insurgents and tended to ratify their legitimacy among Muslims. Fighting groups portray themselves as the true defenders of an Ummah (the entire Muslim community) invaded and under attack — to broad public support.
What was a marginal network is now an Ummah-wide movement of fighting groups. Not only has there been a proliferation of “terrorist” groups: the unifying context of a shared cause creates a sense of affiliation across the many cultural and sectarian boundaries that divide Islam."
3 people dead so far, one was a woman who blew herself up. Seven explosions were heard.
Apparently the guys who did the raid were the GIGN which is the French equivelent to SWAT. Here is a video of them attacking terrorists who hijacked a plane in 1994.

Its so . . .
Remove Bibis' Jewishness and he's just another paranoid asshole pol (with no reason to be paranoid since he controls 300 nukes).
Obama doesn't want to aid France or other European countries because he sees Europeans as colonizers. Dreams from his father. Also, Obama is Christianophobic, and wants to fundamentally transform the U.S. by disarming us and delivering the U.S. out of dhimmitude, into the protective arms of the caliphate.
I don't want to aid France or other European countries because their citizens and their elected leaders objected to our naive cowboy American activities overseas. The world will be safer if the American imperialist war-mongers leave the world alone. Let's give the Europeans and their Russian, Iranian, and Chinese allies the opportunity to solve this problem. The Europeans can employ their sophistication and jaundiced view of the world to everyone's advantage. We can give our service men and women a well deserved rest, and focus on ineptitude and corruption problems in the V.A.
7 terrorists died, 4 of them were french (three of them went to Syria at some point), one was a refugee going through Greece and two haven't been identified yet.
Salah Abdeslam (french) and two Belgian men are still sought in connection to the attacks. Abdelhamid Abaaoud (Belgian) haven't been arrested during the Seine-Saint-Denis raid, not clear where he is right now.
COP21: maintained (no outside protests though)
France & Russia: BFF now. They will coordonate their actions in Syria as allied nations. I'm sure they're working on some deal to finally deliver the Mistral boats and Russia has agreed not to try to recover Ukrainian debt now. In other words Euro-Russian block tensions will be cautiously resolved as long as everyone gets along killing people in the Daesh zone. The big question is Bashar who is just a pawn and could be easily replaced by someone the Russians would agree with.
Oh piss off, it'll always come down to the Europoors asking the US to foot the fucking bill. You losers don't have the guts to engage in a 100 year unwinnable war to kill Muslims. Russia tried once before and look how that turned out.
You're just bitter you went from barbarism to decadence without knowing civilization. More seriously I would have called out those stupid Italians or bobo-centric, rue89 reading french people out or whoever was being an idiot but this board is mostly filled with Americans showing a poor grasp of, well, everything.
