While it is way too early to come to any conclusions about what really happened in Paris, I want to share the following thought with you: President Hollande has just declared that what took place was an act of war. This, in turn, means that the entire NATO alliance could be called in to respond to this(under Article 5). As for the attackers, already one Syrian passport was found, and witnesses say that one of them screamed “for Syria” before opening fire. In other words, this attack has just given NATO a pretext to intervene in Syria. Last, but not least, t he only French aircraft carrier was schedule to leave its port this Wednesday. For the Middle-East, precisely.

Coincidences?

You tell me.

  1. The French are going to tow an aircraft carrier where again? Huh? Let me give you some advice. Leave it at pier side like the Americans. Muslims have won. Only question is, when to you surrender?

  2. While it is way too early to come to any conclusions about what really happened in Paris,

    I respectfully beg to differ. It is early, but not too early for certain conclusions. Specifically: whatever the MSM is saying happened is NOT what happened!

    Coincidences?

    You tell me.

    Of course these are not oincidences. Of course not.

    The event is obviously a NATO false flag to provide excuse for France to escalate military intervention in Syria. Compare the response to the terrorist attack on France with the bombing of Russian plane. More people died in Russian plane bombing and yet there is no “we are Russian too”, or freaking black ribbon on google.com or Russian flag at youtube symbol. Is Russian people a human to the Western world? The whole thing smacks of full-scale media propaganda.

    Furthermore, there is that magically indestructible explosion-proof passport again, just like the passport of the plane hijacker during 9/11 which was conveniently found after surviving explosion. What does the magic passport says now? “Syria”! You cannot make this stuff up!

    The idea that the French want to go to Syria is laughable.
    Hey guys, the French state is broke and our president is a pathetic clown. We have the capability to project some bullets in the back of some camels in the Sahara desert (by “we”, I mean some paid Legions etrangeres), not much more. I know what I’m talking about, I’m French.
    So please, stop make egg-on-my-face wild claims.

    You don’t understand. Mssr. Hollande will simply borrow some missiles from the U.S. to strike ISIS in Syria. As you may recall, after former President Sarkozy and Brit PM Cameron successfully egged on Obama to launch attacks against Qaddafi and Libya, those two NATO super powers ran out of missiles on the second day and had to be supplied by the U.S. If our idiot President had merely followed the advice of his SOD Robert Gates and said no, there would have been no attacks on Libya and a functioning state might still exist and Europe probably wouldn’t be facing the current massive invasion of refugees. There is plenty of blame for the current mess to go around. I guess it is too much to expect these clowns in power to arrive at a simple, logical connection and call a complete halt to the invasion of “Syrian refugees.” Let Russia and the Assad take care of ISIS.

    “Let Russia and the Assad take care of ISIS.”

    I heard an interview on NPR’s ATC this afternoon in which Marie Le Penn stated that, if she were to become President of France, she would work with Assad of Syria to defeat ISIS. Finally, a voice of sanity. See (or hear) http://www.npr.org/2015/11/16/456254001/frances-national-front-leader-criticizes-hollandes-response-to-paris-attacks
