French Do Not Join Terror Fight-It Is Just Policing
French PM Villepin on the war against terrorism (from Reuters):
"Let us not forget that these crises play into the hands of all extremists," the prime minister said in a debate on the Middle East. "We can see this with terrorism, whether it tries to strike inside or outside our frontiers," he added.
"Against terrorism, what's needed is not a war. It is, as France has done for many years, a determined fight based on vigilance at all times and effective cooperation with our partners.
"But we will only end this curse if we also fight against injustice, violence and these crises," he said.
Since France has not engaged in any of the wars against terrorism, they must be sitting pretty with the Islamic fascists. All that is needed is "vigilance"?
Villepin's attitude is the same as John Kerry's. To treat terrorism as criminal activity like prostitution. Accept its presence and pursue the perps.
No, we will not accept terrorism as a norm. We will fight this war whether you care to participate or not!
