    War on Syria: More Paris Puzzles
    Thursday, November 19 @ 03:48:08 UTC
    FranceBy Paul Craig Roberts
    November 19, 2015 - paulcraigroberts.org


    Some people who are not inclined to believe the official story of the Paris attack are troubled by the question why Muslim suicide bombers would blow themselves up for a false flag attack. The answer to this question is very simple. But first we should dispose of the question whether suicide bombers did blow themselves up. Is this something that we know, or is it part of the story that we are told? For example, we were told that during 9/11 passengers in hijacked airliners used their cell phones to call relatives, but experts have testified that the technology of the time did not permit cell phone calls from airliners at those altitudes.

    To dispose of the question whether we have or do not have any real evidence that suicide bombers blew themselves up, I will assume that they did.

    So we have suicide bombers blowing themselves up.

    War on Syria: Military Intervention Is the Problem, Not the Solution
    Thursday, November 19 @ 03:08:19 UTC
    FranceThe Islamic State's latest atrocities are a calculated effort to bring the war in Syria home to the countries participating in it.

    By Peter Certo
    November 19, 2015 - OtherWords


    A café. A stadium. A concert hall. One of the most horrifying things about the murderous attacks in Paris was the terrorists’ choice of targets.

    They chose gathering places where people’s minds wander furthest from unhappy thoughts like war. And they struck on a Friday night, when many westerners take psychic refuge from the troubles of the working week.

    The message was simple: Wherever you are, this war will find you.

    The same could be said for the 43 Lebanese civilians murdered only the day before, when a bomb exploded in a crowded marketplace in Beirut. Or for the 224 vacationers who died when their Russian airliner blew up over Egypt a few weeks earlier.

    War and Terror: After Paris Attacks, Critics Warn Against 'Wars of Vengeance'

    FranceMeanwhile, human rights advocates predict backlash against refugees

    By Deirdre Fulton
    November 15, 2015 - Common Dreams


    As details trickled out about Friday's deadly attacks in and around Paris, observers urged world leaders to avoid knee-jerk responses both at home and abroad.

    "The true test for France is how they respond to the terror attacks in the long-game–that’s the king in all this," said analyst and former U.S. Foreign Service employee Peter Van Buren in an op-ed Sunday. "America failed this test post-9/11; yet it does not sound like France understands anything more than America. 'We are going to lead a war which will be pitiless,' French president [François] Hollande said outside the Bataclan concert hall, scene of the most bloodshed."

    War and Terror: The "Why": The Spectacular Media Failure on Charlie Hebdo
    Thursday, January 15 @ 10:59:02 UTC
    FranceBy Shamus Cooke
    January 15, 2015 - counterpunch.org


    A core tenet of journalism is answering the question “why.” It’s the media’s duty to explain “why” an event happened so that readers will actually understand what they’re reading. Leave out the “why” and then assumptions and stereotypes fill in the blank, always readily supplied by politicians whose ridiculous answers are left unquestioned by the corporate media.

    Because the real “why” was unexplained in the Charlie Hebdo massacre, an obviously false culprit was created, leading to a moronic national discussion in the U.S. media about whether Islam was “inherently” violent.

    For the media to even pose this question either betrays a blinding ignorance about the Middle East and Islam, or a conscious willingness to manipulate public sentiment by only interviewing so-called experts who believe such nonsense.

    War and Terror: L’affaire Charlie Hebdo and Western Colonialism

    France The Cartoons Outlawed in France

    By John Walsh
    January 15, 2015 - counterpunch.org


    To understand the attack on Charlie Hebdo in Paris last week, we need only invert George W. Bush’s 2005 mantra*, thus: “They will continue to attack us over here so long as we slaughter them by the millions over there.”

    In a word, this is one more instance of blowback, as Ron Paul tells us in his perceptive essay, “Lessons From Paris.” Among other things Paul points out: “The two Paris shooters had reportedly spent the summer in Syria fighting with the rebels seeking to overthrow Syrian President Assad. …But France and the United States have spent nearly four years training and equipping foreign fighters to infiltrate Syria and overthrow Assad! In other words, when it comes to Syria, the two Paris killers were on ‘our’ side. They may have even used French or US weapons while fighting in Syria.”

    World Focus: Riots Are a Class Act - And Often They're the Only Alternative
    Tuesday, November 15 @ 11:26:19 UTC
    FranceFrance now accepts the need for social justice. No petition, peaceful march or letter to an MP could have achieved this

    by Gary Younge, Guardian/UK

    "If there is no struggle, there is no progress," said the African American abolitionist Frederick Douglass. "Those who profess to favor freedom and yet depreciate agitation are men who want crops without ploughing up the ground; they want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters ... Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will."

    By the end of last week it looked as though the fortnight of struggle between minority French youth and the police might actually have yielded some progress. Condemning the rioters is easy. They shot at the police, killed an innocent man, trashed businesses, rammed a car into a retirement home, and torched countless cars (given that 400 cars are burned on an average New Year's Eve in France, this was not quite as remarkable as some made out).

    World Focus: French Ghettos, Police Violence and Racism
    Saturday, November 12 @ 11:25:16 UTC
    FranceBy Ghali Hassan, axisoflogic.com

    The French called them Les cités. The ‘ghettos' are specially built for excluded and disfranchised migrants from France's former North African colonies - mostly Arabs and Muslims - and other parts of the world. Clustered on the peripheries of France's big cities, Les cités proved to be laboratories for dissent and resistance against oppression. The children of the immigrants who built France after World War II are being pushed further outside the French society.

    It is important to emphasise that the French youth who are protesting against police violence and the policy of the French political establishment, are French citizens. They were born into first and second generation immigrants communities from France's former colonies. They are not motivated by religion, and the protest has nothing to do with Islam and Western cliché of "Islamic fundamentalism". It is a protest against oppression and racism. This is the only way the youth can express their anger and frustration at French political establishment which deny immigrants to be integrated in their diversity. Successive French governments failed to come up with a faire and successful integration policy.
