Iran cannot stand alone. There is only one enemy and it is Daesh.

Beirut (AFP) - Lebanon on Friday (click here) mourned 44 people killed in a Hezbollah bastion in south Beirut in a twin bombing claimed by the Islamic State group, the bloodiest such attack in years.
The Red Cross said at least 239 people were wounded, several in critical condition, in the blasts that hit a busy shopping street in Burj al-Barajneh, a neighbourhood where the Shiite Hezbollah movement allied to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is popular.
The attack harked back to a campaign against Hezbollah between 2013 and 2014, ostensibly in revenge for its military support of regime forces in neighbouring Syria's civil war.
But it was the largest attack ever claimed by IS in Lebanon, and among the deadliest bombings to hit the country since the end of its 1975-1990 civil war.
Hundreds of people attended funerals on Friday after hospitals started to hand over the bodies of victims to their families....
One victim, Adel Tarmous, was hailed as a hero in the newspapers for having prevented a bomber from entering a Shiite place of worship....

Exporting Terrorism from Syria. They aren't refugees or migrants. The attacks are for different reasons with the same result. France has freedom of speech and expression and received attacks for it's cartoons of Mohammad. Hezbollah was attacked because they are not Daesh sympathizers, they have loyalties to Assad.

So, while the result is the same in causing death, the motivations are different. It would not surprise me if Daesh is putting Texas in it's play book. Crackpot Cartoonists. 

I don't think the attacks are as random as some may think. There is suppose to be a religious morality to inspire Islamists to act. France - cartoons, Lebanon - Shia and Assad. These Islamists don't view themselves as murderers. They see themselves as acting with their faith. There are motivations.

The Syrian passport (click here) found next to the body of one of the suicide bombers in Paris yesterday was registered on the Greek island of Leros, the Greek government said, suggesting that the holder came into Europe claiming to be a political refugee.
The passport was recorded by Greek officials on Oct. 3, Greek Deputy Citizen Protection Minister Nikos Toskas said on a statement posted on the ministry’s website Saturday. Toskas said he didn’t know whether the passport was later processed by other authorities elsewhere in Europe.

Don't be stupid about this stuff.  

Prime Minister Cameron is correct. This is an ongoing problem. It is as much domestic now as in the Middle East.

Saudi Arabia uses a model to remove Islamists intent on violence to prison and reform before they act and kill innocent people. This mess is not new. It is millennium old. The countries in the Middle East, such as Saudi Arabia, knows how to maintain the peace in the homeland.

Is it good to have Russia at our side still yet again.

NATO needs to decide how best to end this war. The Islamists won't end it, they will proliferate it.

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, post war vermin.

The American people don't understand what happened in Paris.

This is the status quo for terrorism. This is literally gang warfare in the name of Allah. It never stops. When one is killed there are half a dozen others that will avenge the death. I am not joking. Islamic war is about retribution. Why are there always Islamists killing each other? There is no such thing as peace. Entering Iraq began a war without end. 

NATO needs to decide how best to end the war that is now in it's second decade.

It is an absolute mistake to accept the idea this is "The New Normal." We have no new normal, that would mean The West will be at war inside it's own borders forever.

This has to end. 

Europe never participated in the killing in Iraq. France is an easy target. France has violent Islamists within their borders. What happened in France was Daesh's proxy war with the USA.

Islamist views emphasize the implementation of Sharia (Islamic law); of pan-Islamic political unity; and of the selective removal of non-Muslim, particularly Western military, economic, political, social, or cultural influences in the Muslim world that they believe to be incompatible with Islam.

These violent people are Islamists. They are not jihadists. Jihadists is not a name, it is a method of warfare. Jihad is the identity of an Islamist. Jihad carries out acts of war. Being a jihadist is like saying they are soldiers. Jihadists are ordered by holy men to act. The purpose of these attacks is best defined as Islamists. They have goals. An Islamist is a personal identity dedicated to bring about a different world including economic and political dialogues.

Jihadist = Soldier 

Jihad is a form of warfare. 
Suicide bomber is a form of warfare.

What good did the NSA do anyone? When government organizations exist for the purpose to exist, it does not solve problems, it causes problems. The mission of the NSA is absent. The people VESTED in the existence of the NSA will only add a faux sense of security. The Congress and the EU have to decide to close electronic communication at their borders or in the case of the EU at the borders of the organization.

The countries involved have to reclaim their sovereign right to protect the citizens. I don't know a country that does it better across the internet than Pakistan.
