French start bombing ISIS stronghold in Syria – let’s call it a good start


French warplanes have pounded the Islamic State group’s de facto Syrian capital Raqa, destroying a command post and a training camp.

In its first air strike against IS since the string of deadly Paris attacks claimed by the jihadist group, 12 warplanes, including 10 fighter bombers, dropped 20 bombs on the targets.

“The first target destroyed was used by Daesh (another Arabic acronym for IS) as a command post, jihadist recruitment centre and arms and munitions depot. The second held a terrorist training camp,” a French defence ministry statement said on Sunday.

The planes left from Jordan and the United Arab Emirates and was conducted in co-ordination with American forces, the ministry said.

French President Francois Hollande on Saturday blamed the Islamic State group for the gun and suicide attacks that left at least 129 dead in Paris on Friday, calling them an “act of war”.

This is a good start and there needs to be more of it.   If these idiots want to take us back to the stone age, why don’t we help them by bombing them there?

Next, we need to hunt down all the Jihadis who are already in Europe.   No mercy.   No touchy feely. If you are an IS sympathiser, you have the choice of flying to an Islamic country of your choice within 48 hours, all expenses paid, or go to prison while evidence is being gathered to justify your continued detention.
