Francois Hollande is just trying to look like the 'strong man' that France traditionally craves in times of crisis. Hasn't really got the face for it.

Best Answer

Maybe he could use some Dutch courage?

Best Answer

He wouldn't have dinner with Hassan Rouhani because the Iranians insisted that no alcohol be served. Francois is not a man who risks eating on an empty stomach.

They were desecrating the memorials to the victims of the bombing. They deserved to be beaten.

Best Answer

The state of emergency bans all forms of public protest for three months, and police seized upon this standing ban to stage a brutal crackdown on a crowd of several thousand people. République Square, which had seen vigils for the victims of the November 13 attacks and official appeals for national unity, was filled with tear gas as police shot rubber bullets at peaceful protesters.

Citing acts of violence by a group of 80 masked protesters, police then proceeded to arrest 289 protesters, detaining 174.

Even before the protests, police had used their emergency powers to place two dozen ecological activists under house arrest without trial. This was part of a broader crackdown across France since November 13 that has seen over 100 unidentified people put under house arrest.

The crackdown on protests goes hand in hand with the broader terrorizing of the public by the state. Anyone who goes into the streets is soon confronted with men wearing body armor and carrying assault rifles.

Business groups have already called for employers to use the state of emergency to monitor the workplaces and denounce “radicalized” workers to police.

Don't care. They should have all been arrested for trashing the memorials.

Best Answer

They DIDNT trash memorials is point!

Best Answer

That is the thing. They did. Many individuals who were protesting in spite of the security measures took candles and other items from the memorials to throw at police. They should have been allowed to protest, but all to often, these eco protests get out of hand. Not to mention the outcry if thousands would have been killed in Paris in a follow-up attack. They would question why they were allowed to congregate.
