FARAGE FOR BREITBART: The Plan To Bomb Syria May Be Yet Another Thoughtless Intervention

After British Prime Minister David Cameron’s speech in the House of Commons supporting us bombing Isis positions in Syria, he now appears to have got many sceptics in his own party, such as Crispin Blunt MP, to support him.  It seems to me inevitable, given that Labour are split on the issue too, that Mr. Cameron is going to get a Commons majority for this action. The main reason appears to be that we should support our allies. That may be admirable if of course we think the French and Americans are pursuing the right policy. But I have my reservations. The U.K. government’s track record on recent military interventions has been poor. I can well remember Tony Blair telling us that the invasion of Afghanistan in 2001 to take on the Taliban was to make the streets of Britain safer. I’m not sure we quite achieved that goal.  Indeed the rationale for subsequent wars in Iraq not to mention the mindless removal of Gaddafi in Libya all appear to have been poorly thought through.  We have destabilised much of the Middle East and North Africa and see a growth in Isis throughout these years.  To be told by the Prime Minister

Surge In French Police, Army Sign-Ups After Paris Attacks

Paris Attacks
France’s emergency services and military have seen a surge of interest from young people keen to join up after watching the Paris attacks unfold on television. “During the attacks I saw all these emergency workers helping people voluntarily. I just felt powerless sitting in front of the TV and I said to myself that I wanted to help people as well,” music student Simon Chaudemanche told AFP. The police, fire brigade and armed forces have all reported a jump in young people asking about careers — or like Chaudemanche, wanting to volunteer for a few months. A day or so later the 20-year-old decided to go and volunteer with the Paris fire brigade, where the recruitment office is seeing up to 20 enquiries a day — five times more than before the November 13 carnage, which left 130 people dead and 350 wounded. Chaudemanche signed up for 10 months of community service as part of an ambulance team — run by the fire service in France — in return for a token payment of around 500 euros ($530) a month. The military recruitment centre in Rennes, in western France, has seen a similar trend, with visitor numbers around double their

French And Russian Leaders Agree Closer Cooperation Against Islamic State. Still No Agreement On Assad

French and Russian
MOSCOW (AP) — The presidents of France and Russia agreed Thursday to tighten cooperation in the fight against the Islamic State group, although they remained at odds over their approach toward Syrian President Bashar Assad. IS has claimed responsibility for deadly attacks against both of the countries’ citizens in recent weeks: Nov. 13 shootings and suicide bombings in Paris which killed 130 people, and the Oct. 31 bombing of a Russian passenger jet over Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula that claimed 224 lives. French President Francois Hollande has been on a diplomatic drive since the Paris attacks to increase cooperation in tackling IS, which holds swathes of territory in both Syria and Iraq. He has met this week with President Barak Obama, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi before flying to Moscow on Thursday for talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Hollande and Putin agreed on increasing intelligence sharing, intensifying their airstrikes against IS in Syria and cooperating on selecting targets — two days after Turkey downed a Russian warplane near the Syrian border. “We agreed on a very important issue: To strike the terrorists only, Daesh and the jihadi groups only, and not to strike the forces

Weapons Used In Paris Attacks ‘Bought From German Dealer’

Paris Attakcs
Four assault rifles used in the deadly Paris attacks were allegedly purchased from a trafficker in Germany, newspaper Bild reported Friday. Quoting documents from the Stuttgart prosecutor’s office, the newspaper said two AK47s and two Zastava M70s were sold on November 7 by the arms dealer to a customer in Paris. “French investigators believe that the weapons were allegedly used in the attacks in Paris,” said Bild. The Stuttgart prosecutor was not immediately available for comment. According to Bild, German police on November 16 arrested a 34-year-old man named Sascha W. from the southern city of Magstadt on suspicion of the illegal weapons trade. The suspect is accused of having hawked the weapons on Darknet — a hidden network used for both licit and illicit ends — using the name “DW Guns”. Four emails on his smartphone show that he sold “four Kalashnikovs assault rifles to an Arab in Paris”, added the newspaper. During a raid at the suspect’s house, police also found 16 other firearms, Bild said.

Putin: Turkey Knew Downed Fighter Jet Was Russian

Following a meeting with French President François Hollande at the Kremlin on Thursday, Russian President Vladimir Putin rejected the notion that Turkey was unaware the plane it shot down for allegedly violating the nation’s airspace was Russian. Putin said the insignia were present on the downed aircraft and that also the United States was aware of the plane’s flight path. “In relation to our aircraft that were allegedly not identified – it’s not possible, it’s not possible,” Putin said according to a translator. “It’s got insignia and you can see it very clearly. These are our planes and you see it very clearly.  And I would also like to reiterate that in advance, in accordance with our agreement with the U.S., we gave information where our planes would be working, what altitude, what areas and Turkey is part of that coalition. And they had to know it was the Russian Air Force that was working in that area.” “If it was an American aircraft, would [Turkey] have struck an American aircraft?” he continued. “And apart from — instead of analyzing this and analyzing this in detail, preventing it in the future – what we see instead or what we hear instead are the
