    Europe’s populist right targets migration after Paris attacks
    PARIS | By Paul Taylor
    Populist leaders around Europe rushed to demand an end to an influx of refugees and migrants from the Middle East and Africa on Saturday after a wave of deadly attacks in Paris claimed by Islamic State militants. The carnage in the French capital, directly linked to the conflicts in Syria and Iraq, seemed bound to further complicate the European Union’s task in sharing out hundreds of thousands of migrants who have entered the bloc this year, fleeing war and poverty.

    The refugees are fleeing their home countries because within those countries they face persecution and worse from largely fundamental islamic animals. If those animals were eliminated within places like Syria and Iraq, then there would be no need for these people to flee. The refugees could then return to Syria and Iraq and restore Europe to its own. But it will take a great deal of effort for the world to clean out these animals, but clean them out it must. The alternative is for ISIS and packs like ISIS to be allowed to go where they want, do what they want and kill who they want.

    I’ve had enough of bleeding hearts who search for some way of convincing the animals that they are doing wrong. There is no way of reasoning with them. They throw compassion and caring back in the faces of those that deliver compassion. They must be removed from humanity.

    Or does anyone have a better idea?

    History repeating. The Romans faced the ‘Barbarians’ at the gate, relented and in they came. End of the Roman empire of a thousand years. And that was four or five hundred years before the advent of ‘Islam’. This time they are already through the gates, not possible to stop it now. This has evolved into the clash of two forces of religious moment, one time worn and running out of steam, the other dramatic, controlling and determinedly violent. Fifty per cent (the women) sidelined and broken, male, chauvinistic, subservient to a mystic demigod. The outcome difficult to predict but painful for sure.

    The world has a huge history of islam vs christendom one way or another as well as various strands of each at each other’s throats. Catholic vs Protestant, Sunni vs whoever. All in the name of an entirely unsubstantiated belief that the hereafter will be rewarded for the faithful. If it wasn’t so pathetic and calamitous, it would be funny.

    But deal with this we must.

    France Strikes Back, Launches A Swarm Of Strikes At The Heart Of ISIS
    By Tyler Rogoway
    Filed to: France 11/15/15 4:53pm
    Twelve French aircraft, ten of which were fighters, dropped 20 munitions on the de-facto ISIS capital of Raqqa in Syria today. This appears to be France’s opening reprisal on ISIS for the terror attacks in Paris on Friday night. The AP reports ISIS targets hit include command and control centers, recruitment center, a munitions depot and training camp.
    These strikes come as the U.S. has moved to share highly-detailed targeting information with the French military, which could be used for immediate retaliatory airstrikes in Syria. Currently six French Mirage 2000s are based in Jordan and six Rafales in the UAE, and France’s only aircraft carrier, the Charles de Gaulle, packed with 20 Rafales and Super Etendards, is just arriving in the region. This French air combat force will likely build even larger in the coming days.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin urged nations to pool their efforts to combat terrorism, adding that the fight must respect international law, the UN Charter and each nation’s sovereign rights and interests. “We understand very well that it’s only possible to deal with the terror threat and help millions of people who lost their homes by combining efforts of the entire global community,” Putin said.

    As an international manhunt for a key suspect in the Paris attacks was launched, French officials revealed police had already found him near the border, but freed him after an ID check. French police released the name and image of Salah Abdeslam, a 26-year-old born in Brussels, warning the public that he was very dangerous. By Sunday, police had detained seven people in Belgium, but Abdeslam was still missing.
    Meanwhile, tantalising clues about the extent of the plot came from Baghdad, where senior Iraqi officials told the AP that France and other countries had been warned on Thursday of an imminent attack.

    ODT Editorial: Living with terrorism post Paris
    Living with terrorism, sadly, means acknowledging the probability of more such occurrences. That could well be a reality of the coming years of the 21st century.

    Undetectable communication increasing – PM
    By Isaac Davison – NZ Herald
    The amount of “dark communications” that New Zealand spy agencies are unable to intercept is increasing, Prime Minister John Key says.
    Mr Key made the comments in response to reports that French intelligence did not pick up any communications that foreshadowed the massive, co-ordinated terror attacks in Paris on Friday night. […] It has been reported that Iraqi forces gave a non-specific warning to the US-led coalition a day before the attacks. NZME
