Double games

"Syrians in Raqqa tell of 'insane nights' of air strikes" (my emphasis in red):
". . . a media activist in Raqqa, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told Al Jazeera on Tuesday that French air strikes had targeted abandoned ISIL bases in the suburbs of the city where there are no civilians or ISIL fighters

"It has been two insane nights. Abandoned ISIL posts were targeted at the entrance of the city, along with ISIL checkpoints and several other points. Electricity and water have been cut off as supply lines were hit too.

"We can confirm that there were no civilians killed or injured in the latest French air strikes.

"People are horrified and everyone here lives in fear. We are sure that several ISIL fighters at the checkpoints were killed in the air strikes.""
World-class American 'targeting'.  Busy-work by the French, trying to appear to be fighting terror while scrupulously avoiding doing so.  If the terror continues (and these was another big real threat today), I imagine even Europeans will eventually start to complain about this Zio-shit.

"Lavrov on the dangerous and double game of the US in Syria":
"The US brought a "dangerous and two-thought game" to Syria, trying at one and the same time to fight the tabu "Islamic state" and yet to use it against President Bashar Assad. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov laid out this view in an  on television channel "Russia 1."

According to Minister of Foreign Affairs, the United States acted in Syria selectively and did not touch those terrorist units, which could cause damage to the government troops.

"The blows delivered to the terrorists, with analysis of these strikes for more than a year, lead to the conclusion that the hits were done selectively, I would say, more gently, and in most cases did not touch those ISIL units, which could seriously oppose the Syrian army. This is a rather dangerous and certainly double game, one not giving a representation of what the US wants," said Lavrov."
Given all the bribery and blackmail which is effectively protecting the terrorists, there will have to be real pressure put on the corrupt politicians like Hollande to actually do what they say they are doing. Otherwise a lot more people are going to die.  I imagine if people stop going to all the places that politicians have left unprotected, like sports venues, performance venues, and restaurants, something may eventually be done.  Until the charade stops, and terrorism is actually combated (which will, amongst other things, involve full and unqualified support for Assad, and real, not phony, attacks on ISIS), terror will continue.
