France is doomed

by Pete


[French] Prime Minister Manuel Valls said Friday morning that France would observe three days of national mourning, starting Saturday. Flags on government buildings will fly at half-staff.

“We would like to tell the French people that we will never give in,” Mr. Valls said outside the Élysée Palace, in Paris. “We will not give in to the terrorist threat. The times have changed, and France is going to have to live with terrorism.”


He added: “France, once again, has been hit in its soul, on the 14th of July, our national day. They wanted to attack the unity of the French nation.”

France, he added, will remain “united and joined around its values.”


No, we don’t have to live with terrorism.   We do not have to be imprisoned by our values once the enemy is at the gate.  Inside the walls.

You can not fix evil with love.   You can not fix war with peace.   And you can not fix terrorism with appeasement.

How many more people need to die before leaders understand that there are times when you have to fight for peace, kill for peace and die for peace, and will stand up and make the hard decisions?

France may think it will have to learn to live with terrorism.  I fear that leaves the job, once again, to other countries to go sort the mess out on their behalf.
