Hello, France! Reality here. Remember me?

So France is outraged by an Islamist act of taking two French Journalists hostage. The Islamists want France to repeal its ban on headscarves.

Here is terrorism at its finest, and it's the same thing we've been dealing with for much of the latter half of the 20th century.

A group wants something. They kill some civlilians or threaten to kill civlians if they don't get what they want. If you give in, more of the same is encouraged. If you do not give in, innocent lives are intentionally taken.

If you try to do something about it to deter it -- you're a dumb cowboy war-monger.

Ok all you Michael Moore-loving Frenchies. These people are barbarians. They are morally bankrupt. They don't just want us to leave their countries alone, they are determined to control yours. Yeah. Your domestic policy. They want to dictate it to you, and will kill your civlilans to try to accomplish it.

Go ahead. Lift the ban. It will be used in their propaganda to recruit more terrorists. "See, we are powerful! We affect elections. We blow up buildings in powerful countries. We dictate domestic and foriegn policies. Join us, and together we will deliver the world to Allah!"

"It is time for the international community to stand up for our right to report safely," Aidan White, president of the International Journalists Foundation

And how do we do that? Pass a UN resolution? Who's gonna enforce it?
