Islamic Radical Terrorists Add Fuel to the Fire in The Long War   Leave a comment

Paris attacks


ISIS terror group has hit the Infidels again.  Terrible attacks in Paris that killed over 130 innocent victims.  This big bad ISIS is really good at hitting ‘soft targets.’  These killers will have a different bravado when they contend with a frontal assault by a western army.

The debate now is should the west, primarily the U.S., go in on the ground in Syria and Iraq to eliminate this slimy stain of humanity.

Al Qaeda had a plan concerning 9/11.  The idea was to provoke an immense response from the United States.  George W. Bush and his manipulative cabal of right-wing hawks fell for the scam lock, stock and barrel.  They invaded a country that had nothing to do with 9/11, Iraq.  When the first U.S. troops rumbled across the Iraqi border, Bin Laden must have been pissing himself with glee.

ISIS is trying to provoke the same response.  I think American and European leaders should be very wary about the notion of an invasion.  The Iraq invasion was the greatest recruitment strategy that Al Qaeda could have imagined. Bush’s invasion created tens of thousands of new Jihadists.  A ground attack on ISIS will do the same thing.  ISIS has enough blind supporters in western countries already, a ground invasion will exponentially increase the numbers of these mindless wannabe suicide martyrs.


ISIS at work

The near-simultaneous attacks in Paris that killed nearly 130 people were an “act of war” organised by the Islamic State (IS) militant group, French President Francois Hollande says.

He said the attacks, carried out by eight gunmen and suicide bombers, were “organised and planned from outside”.

The targets included bars, restaurants, a concert and a high-profile football match. IS claimed the attacks. Mr. Hollande has declared three days of national mourning.

He raised the security threat level to its highest point and imposed a nationwide state of emergency. Hospital officials now put the number of injured at 300. Eighty are in a critical condition.

These are the deadliest attacks in peacetime France, and only the fourth time since WW2 that a state of emergency has been imposed. The last time was during a 2005 wave of riots in poor suburbs.

It is the worst atrocity in Europe since the 2004 Madrid bombings.

The night of violence unfolded soon after 21:00 (20:00 GMT) as people were enjoying a Friday night out in the French capital.

A gunman opened fire on Le Carillon bar in the rue Alibert, not far from the Place de la Republique, before heading across the road to Le Petit Cambodge (Little Cambodia), killing at least 12 people.

“We heard the sound of guns, 30-second bursts. It was endless. We thought it was fireworks,” Pierre Montfort, a resident living close to Le Petit Cambodge, said.

A few streets away, diners sitting on the terrace of La Casa Nostra pizzeria in rue de la Fontaine au Roi, were also fired on, with the loss of at least five lives.

At around the same time, on the northern outskirts of Paris, 80,000 people who had gathered to watch France play Germany at the Stade de France heard three explosions outside the stadium.

President Hollande was among the spectators and was whisked to safety after the first explosion. It later emerged three suicide bombers blew themselves up at fast food outlets and a brasserie near the stadium.

The attack on the 1,500-seat Bataclan concert hall was the deadliest of Friday night’s attacks. Gunmen opened fire on a sell-out gig by US rock group Eagles of Death Metal, killing at least 80 people.

“At first we thought it was part of the show but we quickly understood,” Pierre Janaszak, a radio presenter, told AFP news agency.

“They didn’t stop firing. There was blood everywhere, corpses everywhere. We heard screaming. Everyone was trying to flee.”

He said the gunmen took 20 hostages, and he heard one of them tell their captives: “It’s the fault of Hollande, it’s the fault of your president, he should not have intervened in Syria”.

Within an hour, security forces had stormed the concert hall and all four attackers there were dead. Three had blown themselves up and a fourth was shot dead by police.

Another attacker blew himself up in the nearby Boulevard Voltaire.

Police are trying to establish the identities of the attackers from body parts and other evidence left at the scene.

AFP news agency quotes sources involved in the investigation as saying that one of those who carried out the concert hall attack has been identified as a French citizen.

French media reports quoting police sources say a Syrian passport belonging to someone born in 1990 was found next to one of the stadium attackers. An Egyptian passport was also found nearby, Le Parisien reports (in French).

The paper quotes a spectator as saying one of the attackers was a woman.
