Oh The Spontanaeity Of It All

The Ramrod

posted by U*2 @ 11:39 AM

The "voiture bélier" has made a distinguished appearance during this French Intifada and is being used regularly during the more heavy operations carried out by the rioters. A "voiture bélier" is a vehicle with one or several beams fixed to it so it can be used to smash a wall, gate, or barrier of any kind. Hardly the kind of technique that would be spontaneously used by disenfranchised youth, the "voiture bélier" is the one of the tools of choice used by the armed robbery gangs that operate in Paris' northern suburbs (the same gangs that kickback funding to various Jihad groups around the world) . They have been used efficiently and with spectacular effect to rob upscale Paris jewelery shops in broad daylight. The fact that they are being used regularly by rioters (the rioting started in Paris' northern suburbs) is a good indication about which groups are participating in the current mix of urban guerilla activity.

The next post is even more telling. The writer simply asks - "What is the point of declaring a curfew when you do not posses the means to enforce it?'

They have the means - it's the will that is lacking. I'm suprised Dominique De Villepin (who is a man) doesn't consult his idol (the Corsican Ogre) and treat them to a "whiff of grapeshot"!

I watching breakfast tv this morning.
They had Paul Buchanan on, a supposed security expert from Auckland University.
He had been on yesterday too, poopooing John Howard's claims there was an imminent terrorist threat and Howard was beating up the issue to get his laws passed.
Was Buchanan wrong, TV1 asked.
Oh no. John Howard had blown it Buchanan claimed. By warning of a threat the terrorists knew the police were after them. The terrorists were arrested before there was too much proof. And the arrests happenend before Australia's terrorist laws came into effect! claimed the academic, no doubt residing in some ivory tower.
Poor Little Johnnie. Damned if he does, damned if he doesn't.
I wonder what Helen Clark's take on the issue is today?
This is what she said last week:
"Australia not under imminent threat of attack."
