Nothing to do with Islam… Paris police get assault rifles & Kalashnikov-resistant shields

Parisian police will be given assault rifles and Kalashnikov-resistant shields in a first for the French capital’s officers nearly four months after a terror attack killed 130 people, the interior minister said on Monday.

The weapons, up until now reserved for elite intervention forces, will allow members of certain police units “to intervene as fast as possible to reinforce the first patrols, notably when we are confronted with mass killings,” said Bernard Cazeneuve.

    “to intervene as fast as possible…”

    Armed citizens could intervene even faster, but the powers that be in France and Canada have decided we’d be better off dead.

      They’ll be mere minutes away.

    Another pound of cure. Expelling the Muslims is the ounce of prevention that no one in Europe wants to talk about.

      How about just stopping the bleeding, as Donald Trump is suggesting? Every minute, every day, more and more Muslims invaders arrive ….

    Calm down, it’s for the next Pegida rally.

  • Obviously, the French government is still expecting some major Islamist attacks this year.This is the quiet time before all hell breaks loose, apparently.

    France, and indeed Europe and the West, cannot win if it does not profile all Muslims and treat them as the fifth column they are. Instead, the French government keeps adding Muslims to its ranks and pretending its Muslim population is French.

      Coming into summer. That must be a worry.

      That “pretending” part is getting really hard now…..

    With every passing year the streets of french cities slowly morph into battle zones. The Islamists will respond by ramping up their attack capabilities and by increasing the scope of potential targets. The french elites still can’t see that they’ve been dragged into a protracted war by the country’s growing Muslim minority. And that minority won’t quit until they either win or are expelled.
