France is deploying aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle to the Persian Gulf to “support” bombing ISIS/ISIL/Daesh in Iraq. French defense minister Jean Yves Le-Drain has gone totally war on terra saying, “ISIS must be wiped out.”
Meanwhile, the House of Saud is building a 600-mile-long Great Wall – five layers of fencing with watchtowers, night-vision cameras, radar + ditch – to isolate Saudi Arabia from Iraq.
ISIS/ISIL/Daesh control some patches of desert on the Iraqi side. Assorted Caliph goons have already stated that they will go all the way to Mecca and Medina.
General Hollande, for his part, has said that, “thanks to the Charles de Gaulle we will have intelligence … we may also conduct operations in Iraq.”
Right. So how about parking the Charles de Galle in the desert right by the Great Wall for perfect ground intel?
Meanwhile, the House of Saud keeps merrily beheading. The video of the beheading of a woman has been banned on YouTube. Not fair. If the Caliph can do it, why not the House?

Doesn’t that conspicuously smell of an earlier preparation, just waiting for that crucial and appropriate event, prompting parliamentary approval?
At the same time France lawmakers agreed to display 10,000 troops throughout the country to protect ‘vulnerable places’; spying on citizens, for their protection takes on new forms and formats. A direct reaction to the attack on Charlie Hebdo on January 7 and the assault on a kosher supermarket on January 9? – Killing 17 people in all? Is that it?
French Ministers of the Interior and of Defense have advanced their wish of substantially increased respective police and defense budgets, when the 2016-2017 allocations are being discussed later this year. No doubt they will get their way.
