France Terrorism 2015: After Train Attack, Charlie Hebdo, French Try To Step Up Anti-Terror Efforts But Brace For More Violence

For much of the past two decades, French domestic security has been hailed as the gold standard in European defense circles. Where some neighboring nations experienced deadly terrorist attacks, such as the 2005 London subway bombing that killed 52 people, France’s offices, streets and subways remained largely devoid of high death tolls and terrorism.

“[France] had a strong reputation for the simple and striking fact that there had not been any major terrorist attack between 1986 and 2012,” said Frank Foley, a professor at King’s College in London who specializes in counter-terrorism. “People looked to that and said, ‘What are the French doing?

    It’s only a matter of time.

    They do seem to be coming to accept a war coming, though.

    French domestic security was lulled into false security just like our’s in Canada was. The only reason there were no previous attacks is the terrorists hadn’t bothered. The French got lucky on that train but you can’t always expect luck to save you.

    My opinion is kick out all those terrorists from E U , North America and invade them , wipe them out .

    • Petey the First

      And then the Muslims. That’s about 1.2 billion Africans and another 1.2 billion Muslims. And we thought the 20th century was bloody. It was just a warm up.

        It doesn’t matter where they or who they are terror and crime doesn’t have a color or race .

        • ellake

          it does not, however some color/race/religion are more prone to it then other.

          • Well answered.

          • Maurixio Garciasanchez

            Look at Europe some countries are white Muslims , look at couple in BC white look at wife of the terrorist in Boston white, in China Chinese Muslims , I guess you need to be updated in this case , your answer maybe was right 5,000 years ago .

    I wonder if anyone has thought of deporting people with terror links instead of placing them under surveillance, zero tolerance for people who preach violence in the name of religion, being choosier about the type of people they accept as immigrants? There’s just a few suggestions that would help immensely and cost a fraction of the price of maintaining a police surveillance state, which is something the authorities already say won’t stop terror attacks.

    WTF? The whole Charlie Hebdo thing wasn’t a “major” terrorist attack? There are areas of France that are mooselimb only “no-go” zones to anyone French. The French have thousands of troops patrolling the streets of areas they have not yet been pushed out of. I would say that they are worse off than most of the other European countries.

    • No – Belgium is even worse, and Britain and Holland are not much different really.

  • Hard Little Machine

    It’s kind of pointless at this point. The only fascism French people will accept is the fascism of Islam. Anything else even in a time of crisis would never be accepted.

  • There is zero doubt that pretty soon the 800+ Jihadists in europe will manage to coordinate their efforts and launch an all-out attack on Europe from the inside in all the Western countries. The era of “lone wolf” Jihadists will soon seem like a happy time. Once hostilities start, many “Moderate Muslims” will join in the fray on the Jihadists’ side. If our governments have been too weak to deal with scattered Jihadists, how will they deal with united ones? I shudder to think, considering that Leftists will surely prevent all determined forceful action, till we are all dead.
