Is the latest Paris attack Europe’s “Pearl Harbour”?

Commenter LabTested lives in Europe and writes

I was in town last night. I saw some French flags with candles & flowers placed beneath. At first I felt moved by it, but then it made me angry.

It made me angry because I now have so little faith in my fellow (western) man. Some flowers & candles and in a few days people will move on & Islam will have taken one step further forward.

After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbour, Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto said ‘I fear all we have done is wake a sleeping giant & fill him with a terrible resolve’

Please, Please let Paris be the alarm that wakes the European Giant. There needs to be a totally asymmetrical response. Everything short of turning ISIS held areas into glass.

However I don’t have faith in our leaders. If I lived in France or Germany – I would be buying a gun. .and it saddens me to say that. I want the right to buy a gun, but not the need to buy it.

Western governments have systematically disarmed its populace under a social contract that promised to keep the people safe.   This social contract is clearly broken when people who have no interest in guns are starting to think about having one – it’s the first sign that a population is living in fear and it does not believe it can rely on the government.  

..There will be a Political fall out (from the Telegraph)…..

Next month [France] has regional elections, which were already being regarded as a stiff and perhaps impossible test for the weak and unsuccessful socialist government of François Hollande.

The French press has for months been forecasting that Marine Le Pen’s Front
National could win two or possibly even three of the 22 regions in metropolitan
France, and warning that such a result would be an electoral earthquake for the country…..

…..If Le Pen could win 2 out of 22 before this, She could sweep the country
now. I disagree with her economic policies, but I would 100% vote for her (if I
could).

There is going to be a significant swing to right-wing government in Europe.  The pasty skinned liberal hug and free money types have made this mess.

If you want peace, prepare for war.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
