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?
