Another terror attack in France

Once again terror has struck France. We all remember the terrible attack in Paris, november last year (The inhuman and brutal attack in Paris – Friday 13th of November 2015). This time in Nice on the French riviera. In late night a person drove a large truck into the huge crowd of people out on the long promenade celebrating the French national day 14th of July. He managed to drive the truck around two kilometers trying to kill as many as possible, before the police managed to shoot him dead. The assassin was a 31 year old Tunisian born French citizen Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel.

84 people was killed, among them 10 children in Nice that night, on the French national day. Around 300 was injured among them 30 seriously. This will probably not be the last time with terror attacks in France, or other places too, sadly! President Hollande and the government‘s responds are more police, military in the streets and by the borders, and the promise of more war in Syria. It‘s incredible to think that this is the solution on combatting terrorism. How stupid as a statesman is it possible to be if it‘s terrorism Hollande wants to combat? But is this really what the establishment wants, combat terrorism in real terms I mean? Security at home is one thing of course, but I doubt Holllande really will do the proper job to fight it, by ending imperialistic effort in The Middle East, Africa and elsewhere. He and other Western leaders, which history have shown, wants both war and terror to strengthen their imperialistic power.

(See my article Hollande admits France had armed terrorists in Syria).
If it was up to the French people Holland probably would have been forced to go a long time ago. But a much more important reason for reducing terror will be to end the war in Syria as soon as possible, no doubt.  The main reasons for these terror atrocities is NOT only the hatred different terrorists have towards culture or life style. NO, the terror is an answer on at least 4 illegal wars (IS, the West and the history of the Middle East). First president Bush and Nato‘s illegal war in Afghanistan from 2001 and onwards up to this day! Then more wars came one by one, which all breached UN resolutions and international conventions. In Iraq, LIbya and Syria. It is many more than Nato‘s secretary general Stoltenberg who should have been sent to the International war crimes tribunal in the Hague. As prime minister he and the government decided to participate in bombing Gaddafi with 1000s dead from Norwegian, illegal bombs. Another warlord, Hillary Clinton, can became the next US president with even more 1000s of lives on her record. This is the world and situations which creates terror. War creates terror – stop the war in Syria now!

    It is easy to go along the outcry for more bombs and police, but after all NATO and their allies are making it worse all the time. The only solution to hatred is a socialist world, ruled by the broad majority; the working class.

  2. thorleifb seier:

    Thank you for the perspective, Ivar.

  3. But there is also another aspect which has to be discussed; poverty, unemployment and racial division. France is a very class-based society. This creates anger and hopelessness which MAY trigger violent reaction. This is, like war and suppression abroad, a result of capitalism and has to be overcome.

  4. ivarjordre seier:

    Totally agree on this, very important argument in understanding capitalism repressive system. a system that obviously creates poverty and discrimination, and also violent reactions towards a unfair society.
