    BOOM!

    Steve, c’mon this has been going on for almost 1,400 years. How can it be last week’s news?

  3. Lem

    No, Steve, I think this time you’re wrong. This is WW3. It’ll have top billing for a long time.

    They may as well include islamic terrorist attacks in the nightly weather forecasts.

    a) they’re just as predictable
    b) no-one does anything about the weather either.

  5. Bill Griffiths

    Where’s Jan Sobieski when we need him? Who in our time will say “Venimus, vidimus, Deus vincit”? Can the Poles save Europe from itself – and the French – again?

  6. A Lurker

    It will be interesting to look into the future to see which of Australia’s Syrian refugee intake will go AWOL, and who from that group will chuck a tantrum and go BOOM on Australian soil.

    Now it’s not a matter of IF it will happen; rather WHERE and WHEN.

  7. whyisitso

    Even in so-called moderate Turkey, fans sabotage the minute’s silence. And this is the mob that Davidson want to open our borders to. NO MORE MOSLEMS!

  8. JMH

    Trouble is we have to deal with a f/ken idiot in the form a Waffling Lord who care not one iota for us Aussies. A craven lunatic whose main purpose in life is to have his ego publicly stroked. And he brings 12,000 more death cult members into our community. I can’t really say it but wall, dawn – and you know where I want to go.

    How long are you going to keep stalking the site. It’s very unprofessional and unbecoming.

    Loved the little snippet of news as I drove to work (at about 12.04) The Snaka (aka Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull) said Islamic State must be defeated. — there you go — the Abbott government lives, Tony is governing from the backbench and writing the script which The Snake with duly hisses to the adulation and with great aclaim from the fifth/filth column. Abbott Rules — his words are copied by the White House Mulatto and by The Snake in the Our House.

  11. Tintarella di Luna

    Or maybe it’s the OutHouse because the House of Reps is now a toilet

  12. Iren

    The Snaka (aka Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull) said Islamic State must be defeated.

    He has also said that boots on the ground would be counter productive.

    I guess it depends on the time of day and mood he’s in.

    The West will tolerate 1-10-100-1,000, maybe even a few thousand, bloodied corpses from fanatical Islamist terror.

    But they won’t tolerate 10’s of 1000’s without drastic action being unleashed on those responsible – and I mean the whole culture that is responsible for it.

    The only real factor missing in the equation is the ‘means’ to put the atrocity into effect.

    The fanatics have shown time and again that they have the motivation and the will. To them it is sanctioned by God.

    Does anyone seriously think that, should they get their hands on a nuclear, chemical or biological device, they would hesitate for an instant to use it on Paris or New York or London?

    I can’t imagine any US president (except Obama, who’s a flat out weirdo) and other Western leaders not mobilising and flattening square miles of the ME and to hell with the collateral damage. Besides, is this not the end game for these fanatics?

    There is precendent, of course, following the ‘War to End All Wars’.

    So we can pontificate about them needing a dose of ‘Enlightenment’ all we want. It’s futile and, quite frankly, naive, IMHO.

    The Germans were some of the most cultured and enlightened people around in the first half of the 20th century. It didn’t stop Nazism. Indeed, it sought inspiration and exploited its very culture to achieve its ends. Richard Wagner kind of sang its tune, if you know what I mean.

    And the Nazis were purely ideologically driven in the end. That is to say, they had no divine ‘sanction’ to do what they did.

    The Islamists, by contrast, believe they have divinity on their side.

    They are, therefore, predisposed to think that we are the ‘unenlightened’ ones who need to submit, or else!

  14. Gab

    The West will tolerate 1-10-100-1,000, maybe even a few thousand, bloodied corpses from fanatical Islamist terror.

    But they won’t tolerate 10?s of 1000?s without drastic action being unleashed on those responsible – and I mean the whole culture that is responsible for it.

    Oh really? Did you miss all the mass graves, beheadings, rapes, sex slaves, mutilations, men burnt in cages, men drowned in cages perpetrated by ISIS for the past year or so? A hell of a lot more than 10’s of thousands have been killed off. And the West does nothing.

    You really are a foul turd, JC. Your abuse of commenters here is disgusting. You have a rather stupid concept of “professionalism”.

  17. Jim

    At least the GOP race for the presidential candidate is providing plenty of laughs…..

  18. Rabz

    And the West does nothing.

    Gab – not having a go, I don’t remember the West doing a whole lot about Pol Pot or those genocidal loons in Rwanda, for example.

  19. Rabz

    Yep, then it will be back to the really important issues like campus safe spaces, trigger warnings and micro-aggressions.

  20. Ant

    Maybe in the interests of brevity, which I realise I struggle with sometimes, I was too brief.

    I meant 10’s of 1,000’s of deaths in a Paris or New York or London, etc.

    It’s obvious that the West is prepared to tolerate mass murder in Africa or parts of Asia on a colossal scale (Rwanda, etc) but isn’t their reaction in large part driven by political will and doesn’t that will ultimately derive from their respective peoples?

    If it comes to 50,000 Parisians, however, while I think that’s clearly unchartered territory, the West’s reaction isn’t going to be so mute.

  21. Jannie

    This will become old news soon. The good thing is these data they seem to have stopped the War Against Terrorism. Now it’s clearer, it’s War Against Islam.

  22. outsider

    You know, Trump is the very antitheses of our own businessman leader, and probably is about 30-40 times more successful in business, as measured by the personal bottom line. And no waffle, not a word out of place. He is a real sharp, street wise guy who communicates strongly in NY street talk.

    I heard his Knoxville speech, his popularity seems to mystify the political insiders as much as it is cheers average Americans, as far as you can use that expression these days. Say what you like about him, and all is fair in the dog-eat-dog world of US politics, but he echoes a lot of things people are saying to themselves, in Oz as well.

    Like: is Obama and his administration bad or just stupid? Intending to deliberately f*ck up or simply too incompetent to think any of it through and get it done? As with most things, some of each, maybe 40/60 or so, who knows? About Paris, DT said he wants to ‘bomb the shit out’ of the oilfields – this goes down like a treat, as they are really, as in..really..sick of losing.

    He is on target for 25% of African Americans, and the pundits say if he gets their votes at that level, the election is his. He is winning Florida (having flattened Jeb and Rubio, painting their Super PACs as corrupt and corrupting) so the Hispanics are pretty OK with him, looking at the big picture.

    He is really giving Americans a chance to reject their political class, and their media along with it .. as it is in Australia, it’s hard to tell the difference most of the time as there is not a cigarette paper between the lefty media and the lefty politicians. Trump straight up hammers both camps with ridicule and front. He offers a running commentary on their performance, he orders cameramen to pan the crowds, he knows the media game better than they all do. He enlists the willing crowd in boisterous laughter at their expense, a nice bacchanalian touch.

    I’d say IS better move fast and smart in the next year, if Trump wins their days as a geographic entity are seriously numbered, measured maybe in two digits. It is going to be his ‘turn back the boats’ issue, and he will show up in office with well considered, immediately actionable plans.

    It looks like there is steel behind the stand up routine. Quite apart from anything else with Hillary and the Dems, it will be very entertaining indeed if he wins. She looks like she might struggle next year. If he gets that close he may steamroller over her. That is how business works – don’t screw up at the last hurdle. He is exhorting people to turn out and vote, even tells them where Romney went wrong.

  23. Louis

    Yeah I watch a video last night of a handful of people gate-crashing a ‘unity’ protest/vigil in France. The gate-crashing had a banner and were chanting evict/stop the Muslims. You’d think they had just turned up with swastika to a Jewish funeral. They were booed and yelled out and despite the police separating the crowds, they were pushed back right out of the area by a 10:1 opposition.

    This will blow over just like the Charlie Hebdo thing. At the end of the day, too many French either fully support the Western self-loathing, are too scared of being ostracised for not supporting it, or won’t offer any resistance to it.

    Any ‘destruction’ of ISIS will only result in the thousands of foreign fighters there melting back to their home countries to continue the jihad complete with experience, networks and equipment.

  24. AndrewWA

    After 6 years of Obama NOBODY should be surprised about Americans turning to someone such as Donald Trump.
    The USA wants its pride restored and its debt reduced.
    They dislike being the laughing stock of the World.

    He may surprise us all as I was with the role that Ronald Regan took on disarmament and working closely with Mikhail Gorbachev.

  25. outsider

    It’s easy to wonder why IS and Al Queda and associated outfits have not managed to pull off another big one since 9/11. This effort was n=140 or so maybe, about the same as their long term batting average for notable European theatre terror attacks, including embassies in Africa.

    They don’t seem to lack logistical and tactical, organisational skills and these synchronised multiple attacks would, if anything, be harder to pull off successfully than say, a dirty bomb in Trafalgar Square, or a fertiliser bomb in Martin Place for that matter.

    Maybe they know how far they can go and still not provoke the West, just wait for the news cycle to rapidly reach its half life and the news story disappear forever. How would the Euro lefties react if 4-5,000 go down in one or two very large bombs in a CBD?

    The Left look like they took a bullet this week, all dismayed and sad. They are a big disappointment, it’s almost like they actually believe their own BS. Tony Eastley interviewed a French dude on the street – the angry guy glowered at him and told him ‘something needs to be done about these Muslim extremists’. The ashen faced Eastley looked bamboozled and staggered backwards, muttering a few words glibly as he signed off.

    outsider (6.14pm). I posted this last Saturday….From the Tele…

    “Australian expat Sam Davies, 33, is locked in a bar about 300 metres from the attack on the Le Carrillon and Le Petit Cambodg in the 10th arrondissement…..Formerly from Melbourne, Mr Davies has lived in Paris for eight years and lives next door to Le Carillon…….He said he was horrified the popular Le Carillon bar and neighbouring Cambodian restaurant were targeted.

    This isn’t a tourist area, this is young, hipsters,” he said. “Le Carillon is the hipster ground zero of Paris.

    “For me, it’s an incongruous attack. It’s a friendly, vibrant area of young people where all the cafes and bars are opening up. It’s the only place in Paris where you can get a good coffee. It’s like Fitzroy in Melbourne.”

    Sam knows that tourists and average Joes deserve blowing up. But young cool lefty hipsters? WTF is going on? We are their enablers and this is the thanks we get?

  27. Jo Smyth

    From the word go, Donald Trump looked a cert. He is saying all the right things that the millions of silent majority think but who are too busy going about their daily lives, working, bringing up families, thinking about the way America is being driven down the abyss by the wankers who are now in charge. The silent majority are sick of the fact the activists and the left are the only ones making a noise because they have time on their hands to make a noise. The same is happening here so bring on the revolution.

    The way things are going, it may be insignificant…

    So it looks like towns around Raqqa are falling to the Kurd/Arab forces, the main supply line is cut and IS is making panicked efforts to prevent civilians and key workers like doctors from fleeing as the bombs drop.

    WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT that co-ordinated action by massive, modern military forces might suppress the genocidal activities of IS. If only someone had thought of that sooner. And was it yesterday that Obama said boots on the ground would be a ‘mistake’.

    And it was only today that turnbull said boots on the ground would be a mistake.

  31. dan

    Now, now Gab. He has ruled them out at this time but did add (and note the second sentence):

    “We don’t have any plans to change the nature of our deployment in that theatre, that is not to say they won’t change in the future,” he said.

    “We have to be, just as we have to be agile in terms of innovation policy, we have to be agile in terms of our approach to the security challenges we face. We have no plans to change the nature of the deployment at the present time.”

    Churchillian.
    “We shall fight on the beaches, we shall allow accelerated depreciation for SMEs, we shall never surrender.”

    “We have to be, just as we have to be agile in terms of innovation policy, we have to be agile in terms of our approach to the security challenges we face. We have no plans to change the nature of the deployment at the present time.”

    FFS – did he seriously say that, or are you taking the piss?

  33. Rabz

    The ALPBC have reported him saying this on October 28:

    We don’t have any plans to change the our nature of our deployment in that theatres, that’s not to say they won’t change in the future. We have to be, just as we’ve got to be agile in terms of innovation policy, we have to be agile in terms of our approach to the security challenges we face.

    Can Turnbull be satirised? Beyond my abilities.

  35. Rabz

    Can Turnbull be satirised?

    Evidently not.

  36. dan

    Mr Harper said the UN would not be swayed by any pressure when it came to referring Syrian refugee cases to Australia or any other country.

    “We do not take too much notice of what politicians anywhere in the world have to say,” he said.

    “Some are being very forthright in their positions, but what we will do is remain objective and focus on the criteria which we have which is vulnerability.

    “And if other people want to bring subjective values which are to necessarily key criteria, we will ignore those.”

    Reported on their ABC. Fine. we should withdraw from the conventions and let the UN sort the problem out without us.

  37. iamok

    One of the real problems we face is the egos of the leaders we have now who will either not want to lose face or will want to strut like omnipotent world leaders.

    We know that Obumma and Trunchbull fall into this category without question. When backed into a corner both will either lash out or engage smug mode to the great detriment of us all. And of course the media will happily lick their fundaments in the process.

    Time for fluffy bullshit words and diversions is long past, but that is about all we are likely to get. It would be nice if our leaders realised there is a real crisis here and they need to call on help to get through this, but I will not hold my breath waiting.

  38. We have to be, just as we have to be agile in terms of innovation policy,

    Fucking innovation policy?! WTF?!

    Just shows how utterly fucking useless Turdballs is.

    Government does not drive innovation.

    Never did, never will. Anyone who has ever worked in a job and developed a better way of doing things is an innovator.

    Innovation is driven from the bottom, at the coal face. Turnbull doesn’t know shit.

    Sigh, every single time. The fifth column of intelligent, “radical” political movers and shakers aka the hipsters, are ALWAYS “first against the wall, come the revolution.” (Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy).

    But it seems they are always the innocents who have to learn that deadly lesson the hard way.

    Sari Club? Soon forgotten. The infants of Beslan? Same. World Trade Centre? Fading.

    All outrages from Islam, which are constant and many.
    I want an open and free discussion with Australian Muslims about the Koran and killing.
    At the least we should bring it into the open. And have a law against threats for apostasy.
    And suggest to Australian Muslims they should disavow these parts of their texts openly and in their mosques. Where’s Wally and that helpful doctor when you need them?

  41. Y

    Just a normal day in Paris:

    Seconds later, she detonated a suicide vest, killing herself and causing the floor of the apartment partly to collapse. The explosion was so violent that her spine was later found lying in the street outside.

    Police threw in 20 grenades and a second terrorist, believed to be Abaaoud, was killed in the battle that ensued, after being “riddled with bullets”.
