    France will send artillery to Iraq and its Charles de Gaulle aircraft carrier to assist the US-led coalition’s efforts in Syria and Iraq in the coming months, but will not deploy its troops in these countries, French President Francois Hollande said Friday. France will also send artillery to Iraq in August to help the Iraqi army fight Daesh terrorists, the President added. "The Defense Council and I made a decision this morning to provide Iraqi forces with artillery as a part of anti-Daesh efforts. The artillery will be delivered in August," Hollande said. The French aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle...

    Paris (AFP) - French President Francois Hollande on Friday defended his government from accusations it relaxed its anti-terror defences after the Euro championships, and announced plans to arm the fight against the Islamic State group which claimed the Nice attack. Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve has been the lightning rod for accusations that authorities dropped their guard after the June 10-July 10 football tournament, leaving the Bastille Day celebrations targeted in last week's massacre in Nice exposed. Five suspects have been formally charged over the July 14 truck attack in the French Riveria city that killed 84 people.
  • Nice attack: City refuses police call to delete CCTV images

    BBC ^ | 7/22/2016
    The local authorities in Nice have refused a request by French anti-terror police to destroy CCTV images of last week's lorry attack. The Paris prosecutor's office said the request had been made to avoid the "uncontrolled dissemination" of images. But officials in Nice have responded by filing a legal document, arguing the footage could constitute evidence. It is the latest evidence of a growing dispute between the local and national authorities in the wake of the attack. More than 80 people died when a Tunisian man, Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel, ploughed a lorry into crowds out celebrating Bastille Day on 14 July....

    The Tunisian man who killed 84 people on the French Riviera by ploughing his truck into Bastille Day crowds had been planning the attack for months with the help of at least five accomplices, the Paris prosecutor said on Thursday. “The investigation under way since the night of July 14 has progressed and not only confirmed the murderous premeditated nature of Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel’s act but also established that he benefited from support and complicity,” Francois Molins told a news conference. The prosecutor said he had placed the five people - an Albanian couple, a Tunisian man and two Franco-Tunisian...

    Despite having about 100 Dassault Rafale B/Cs in the Air Force inventory, France sees itself forced to keep its older Mirage 2000D operational to keep the ground attack capabilities of the Armée de l’Air at proper levels. It even wants the Deltas to drop below altitudes they were not meant to do when designed – learning from recent missions in the skies of Southwest Asia. Dassault Aviation received the order – by French defence procurement agency DGA – to renovate 55 Mirage 2000Ds. The modification include weapon system updates, the gun pod and Mica missiles of the aircraft version of...

    PARIS — Police in Nice have questioned a 73-year-old man described as the Bastille Day killer’s “main lover” as investigators described him as a “sex maniac” and “ultra-violent sadist,” according to French reports. The revelation came amid revelations that Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel had displayed a “clear, recent interest in the radical jihadist movement,” growing a beard only in the last eight days after a previous life drinking alcohol and eating pork. Francois Molins, the French prosecutor, said the Tunisian, who killed 84 people when he plowed into crowds on Nice’s Promenade des Anglais last Thursday, had searched on the Internet...

    The Nice terror attack spurred finger pointing among France’s political elite about insufficient security during Bastille Day celebrations, as well as a sober acknowledgment that the threat of radical Islamist terrorism has become a day-to-day reality for life in France. The terror attack that killed 84 along the French Riviera on France’s independence day, July 14, has challenged the political discourse in France on how to combat terrorism. Focus has partially shifted away from eliminating terrorism’s root causes toward finding ways to effectively mitigate the terrorist threat through better security.

    The Islamist terror attack in Nice France, carried out by a jihadist in a heavy truck, should be yet another blow to the Democrat gun control movement in the U.S., and an indictment of the Euro-socialist model of government that the left adores. First and most obviously, the attacker used a commonly available, useful, but potentially dangerous tool to slaughter many more people than his fellow jihadist in Orlando managed with firearms. Are we to ban heavy trucks now? It is probable that some Islamist nutcase in America will try to imitate his French co-religionist. When that occurs will President...

Why did the French police allow a foreign national with a criminal record of violence to reside in France? Apart from utter incompetence, the explanation is that he was a snitch for the French authorities. Blackmailing Muslim criminals to inform on prospective terrorists is the principal activity of European counter-terrorism agencies, as I noted in 2015. Every Muslim in Europe knows this. The terrorists, though, have succeeded in turning the police agents sent to spy on them and forcing them to commit suicide attacks...

The chief police witness in Parliament testified that on the night of the attacks, an investigating officer, tears streaming down his face, rushed out of the Bataclan and vomited in front of him just after seeing the disfigured bodies. The 14-hour testimony about the November attacks took place March 21st. According to this testimony, Wahhabist killers reportedly gouged out...

    A day after a terrorist mowed down dozens of people celebrating Bastille Day in the coastal French city of Nice, investigators dug into the life of the man they say was the killer: A 31-year-old delivery driver and Nice resident who was born in Tunisia. Authorities said Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel drove a rented, refrigerated truck weighing about 20 tons into crowds along a roughly 2-kilometer stretch of Promenade des Anglais on Thursday night, killing 84 people -- including 10 children and adolescents -- and injuring 202 others. The attack ended when police shot into the truck, killing Bouhlel, French prosecutor...

    Of course he did. Because as I keep saying and BEGGING people to comprehend, islam is not a religion, it is a political system. All of the seemingly-religious aspects are pure theater, which only the truly gullible (due often to low IQs resulting from centuries of epidemic inbreeding) follow. The 9/11 hijackers spent their final days as fixtures in strip clubs, drinking like fish. The largest cultural block of pornography consumers is musloids. The highest per capita rates of homosexuality, pedophilia, and bestiality are among musloids. Think of it in terms of Communism. I mean by-the-book Communism. NO ONE believes...

    NICE, France — As new details emerged Friday about the Tunisian man who drove a truck through crowds celebrating Bastille Day in Nice, killing 84 people and wounding 202 others, French leaders extended a state of emergency imposed after the Nov. 13 Paris attacks and vowed to deploy thousands of police reservists on the streets. French officials called it an undeniable act of terror, but no group claimed responsibility and it wasn't clear if the 31-year-old delivery driver blamed for the carnage had extremist ties.

    MSNBC’s Brian Williams is a master of saying the wrong thing at exactly the wrong time. I mean, in general, that point is evident since he lost the anchor’s desk at Nightly News and was suspended for six months for lying about his journalistic exploits. Now, we have him saying that he’s “plowing over” his network’s original programming to bring you the latest on the Nice attack (via Curtis Houck/ Newsbusters) [emphasis mine]:Brian Williams Tells Viewers in Nice Coverage He's ‘Plowed Over’ Chris Matthew’s ‘Hardball’ BRIAN WILLIAMS: This is Donald Trump on a phone interview from the last hour: “But I...

    On CNN last evening, Georgia State professor Mia Bloom claimed that the terror group ISIS was not “coming after us,” and expressed concern that attacks like that in Nice, France yesterday increase the “degree of right-wing politics” and Islamophobia. Bloom took issue with former CIA analyst Bruce Sexton whom she believed wasn’t aware that the majority of ISIS’s victims are Muslims. “I do disagree with Mr. Sexton, because the fact is, and I’ll say this to you, Buck, directly, the vast majority of ISIS’ victims are Muslim. Not us. Not the West,” she said in a somewhat mocking tone. As...

    There are those who still refuse to identify this war on Islamic terror, despite the increasing threats to the safety of the Western public. No matter how many times the Islamic State or Al Qaeda declares the nature of this war of conquest, nothing will convince these leftists that Western nations (and Israel) are engaged in a jihadist war. In fact, a lunatic former Manhattan prosecutor and longtime defense attorney, Scott Fenstermaker, stated of 9/11 that America “got what it deserved” because of past injustices.

    A French government committee has heard testimony, suppressed by the French government at the time and not released to the media, that the killers in the Bataclan tortured their victims on the second floor of the club, Heat Street reported exclusively. ADVERTISEMENT Police witnesses in Parliament said they vomited when they saw the disfigured bodies. Wahhabist killers apparently gouged out eyes, castatrated victims, and shoved their testicles in their mouths. They may also have disembowelled some poor souls. Women were stabbed in the genitals – and all the torture was, victims told police, filmed by Daesh or Islamic state for...
