Paris Attack

On Nov 12th, everything was quiet and peaceful in Paris. On Nov 13th ISIS attacks killed 129 people and 352 people are admitted to hospitals with injuries sustained in the attacks, including 80 described as being critically injured. Then if by magic in the following couple of days the police are raiding houses, shooting it out with other terrorists and their planes are bombing ISIS strong holds. Could their intelligent have discovered all these cells in a matter of a day or two or did they already knew about them and if they already knew why did they allow them to exist and wait for them to strike first? I guess in today's world it's better to sacrifice a couple of hundred innocent people then be thought as an aggressor.

Probably a dragnet. What's likely not being reported is all the innocent people wacked several times with a Baton, chewed on by a police dog, tossed from bed, apartments turned inside out. etc. Good PR to report the successful police activity. That and they were under suspicion, and now that there is a state of emergency, suspicion is more then enough to attack people that look different or don't speak good French.

After declaring their version of martial law, their tactics changed from fairly liberal to a more militaristic tactic.
Perhaps it's time we considered the same here when it comes to fighting terrorism, or at the least arming and preparing our civil police forces to better protect and confront any terrorist activity.
It's probably time the police forces in areas prone to an attack by terrorist start carrying better equipment such as fully automatic weapons.

I wondered the same thing Chuck! The best defense is a good offense!

Sounds to me like intense police work. They had a video of a car and a photo and took it from there.

From what I gather, they knew about and were watching the ring leader. That's how they found and killed him so quickly. Too little too late and someone calling the shots over there should have their ass on the hot seat.

How many of you remember when France refused us permission for our jets to fly over their territory to carry out our attack against Libya. Their reason was that our attack renewed the chain of violence triggered by terrorism. Now that they're on the dirty end of the stick they want our help.

As with much criminal and terrorist activity they had done nothing wrong until they went crazy. Just having someone on radar doesn't give them the authority to do anything. As previously stated, some intense follow up police work. I heard on the news this morning 5000 rounds were expended in yesterdays apartment breach. That is some serious trigger time!

You make an excellent point. If they knew beforehand. Why wait? If old fat bald married white guys were terrorizing the world then I would understand if the police raided my house and thank them for looking under every rock but that is not the case. These people who want to live in western countries need to deal with it.

If they did not know beforehand then that is some fast effective police work for sure.
