“French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve has said European countries must “wake up” to terror threats, following the attacks in Paris that left 129 people dead.”

“The killing of a Chinese national by the Islamic State (IS) militant group has sent shockwaves across China.
Official reaction was swift. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemned IS for the kidnapping and killing of Fan Jinghui, and vowed to “bring the culprits to justice”. “
See IS killing of Chinese hostage: A game changer?I am so frustrated by the defensive attitude of so many governments to ISIS and other threats. Building walls won’t even slow these guys down. They have to be killed just like human wave attacks against machine-guns and artillery. You can’t keep all of them out. You have to kill them.
ISIS wants to die. It is a death-cult. Grant them their wish. Send multiple armies with close air support to wipe them out. We can’t reason with them. We can’t change how we operate to please them. We can’t appease them. We have to kill them.
The Canadian Government is treating IS like a natural disaster they can deal with by sending food, tents and blankets. That won’t work. ISIS is coming for us. They won’t stay home. They won’t quit spreading their disgusting propaganda to incite weak minds. They won’t stop until they are all dead. Canada should immediately seek to mobilize, recruiting ~100K shooters. We can make short work of ISIS. They can’t kill us all if we work together. The world should put a million soldiers with air-cover in Syria and Iraq and clean up the place. Instead of us letting terrorists kill 20 citizens for every one of theirs that dies we should kill 50 of them for every casualty on our side until they are finished.
I appreciate that destabilizing Iraq was a trigger for ISIS but that’s not our fault. Bush and his folks made Sadaam’s army unemployed and ISIS picked up the pieces. We don’t have to repeat that mistake. The Kurds in Iraq and Syria can run a country properly. They won’t bow to ISIS. Arm the Kurds. Join forces with them and kick butt. ISIS is still tiny by global standards. It’s not too late to stop it before we have real problems.
The USAians are claiming Iraq, Saudi Arabia and others will have to step up. We can’t wait for that. Take over Iraq and Syria as failed states and nurse them back to health. The Saudis have long had a chance to help so they should not complain if we, the world, fix the problem. It’s our problem too and we should not expect the Saudis to fix our problems.
Clinton is right about closing Syrian airspace. She’s wrong about not putting in troops. It takes troops to hold territory. Europe, North America, the Chinese now, even the Russians should all see it is in our best interests to put a lid on this mess right now. While we are at it, we can fix Palestine too. That festering sore is older than I am.
