First person accounts of the Paris Attacks

Via Huffington Post.

I’m shocked and dismayed and horrified.

Paris

    Watching TV (mainly cable personalities standing on the streets of Paris in the middle of the night to provide live coverage of nothing much) really underscores the fact that the so-called terrorism experts have very little idea of who is attacking us or why. It might have been ISIS.

    Needless to say, western politicians don’t have anything resembling a viable strategy against ISIS (which has three other names depending on who you ask). Remember, the fall of Mosul happened 17 months ago. More bombing isn’t the answer, for that you need an accurate target list.

      Well, Marco Rubio is putting on his suit of armor. He’s talking about the so-called “clash of civilizations,” which is what al-Qaeda and ISIS have been trying to promote all along. The Neocons and defense contractors like it because it reminds them of the Cold War ($$$). But for our side it’s a losing game from a strategic standpoint.

      Put away your sword Ken!

      I thought you Republicans hated France. Read Richard’s article below.

      Taking the bait: How Republicans help ISIS spread their propaganda about the ‘war against Muslims’

      ISIS says we’re waging a war against innocent Muslims, not against its extremist ideology and designs on terroristic dominance in the Middle East. Between trying to curtail innocent Syrians’ routes for escape, stepping-up the war in their country and prosecuting that war with wanton disregard for those very innocents, the Republican candidates for president seem determined to send the same message.

      The article is right on!

      Poor Congressman Walter Jones wishes he could purge every mention of the phrase “freedom fries” from history. It was his idea, and he’s been terribly embarrassed about it and his vote for Bush Jr’s. tragic war blunder ever since:

      I did not do what I should have done to read and find out whether Bush was telling us the truth about Saddam being responsible for 9/11 and having weapons of mass destruction,” Jones said during an interview on The Tyler Cralle Show. “Because I did not do my job then,” Jones continued, “I helped kill 4,000 Americans, and I will go to my grave regretting that.

      It would be helpful if Hillary would give a statement that contrite about her failure.

    Did you know Orrin Hatch still goes out in public sometimes? I know, it’s unbelievable, I turn on KSL radio every blue moon when there’s absolutely nothing else on, probably because 70% of the programming is commercials, but I flipped it on today, and there was Orrin, blaming Obama for not staying in Iraq, even though it was Bush who agreed to leave Iraq.

    They also seem to be blaming Obama for not acting on some intelligence that might not have even made it to him. Hmmm. That story is really vague, but we’ll see how slow the truth gets to the wonderful “liberal media” on that one.

    Let’s keep in mind the ISIS is attacking more Muslims then Christians.

    Paris Attacks Could Mean Big Profits For Weapons Companies

    It’s almost as if war is a business…

    The West Is Giving ISIS Exactly What It Wants

    The UN High Commissioner for Refugees found that “loss of hope and appalling living conditions” are motivating Syrian refugees to leave Lebanon, Jordan, Syria and Egypt for Europe. It’s easy to see, then, why shutting refugees out of the West could breed more extremism.

    …The Islamic State has been very disappointed by the flow of refugees to Europe, because it undermines the narrative that the group provides a safe haven for global Muslims.

    I’m much more concerned about violence that might erupt here after the refugees get here and the wingers go jihad. I’m going to take a nap and listen to Cat Stevens.

    Jeb Bush Calls For U.S. Ground Troops To Fight ISIS

    The thing is, the U.S. Army and Marines have been there, done that, and got the T-shirt. How well did it work?

    Josh Marshall:

    We’ve had three presidential elections since the 9/11 terror attacks and no presidential candidate has ever proposed shutting down mosques in the United States or creating a special registry and identification cards for Muslims living in the United States.

    Until now, of course.
