French President Raises Terror Threat Level
The French president says the country will raise its domestic terror threat level after military action in Mali and Somalia, promising to increase protection at public buildings and transportation networks. President Francois Hollande said Saturday he had ordered increased security after the French military operations in the two African countries against Islamist forces. France has some of the world's most recognizable monuments and a wide-ranging national transportation network; like the U.S., it also has an organized government response if there are specific fears of a terrorist attack. French aircraft and troops are backing soldiers in Mali who are trying to push back Islamist offensives; in Somalia, French commandos launched a failed raid to rescue an intelligence agent held hostage there for three years.[...] For the past nine months, the Islamic militants have controlled a large swath of northern Mali, a lawless desert region where kidnapping has flourished. "French armed forces supported Malian units this afternoon to fight against terrorist elements," Hollande said in Paris. He did not give any details of the operation, other than to say that it was aimed in part at protecting the 6,000 French citizens in Mali, where seven of them already are being held captive. [More...]In November of last year Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb's (AQIM) leader Abu Musab Abdel Wadoud was interviewed by Terror TV's Al-Jazeera. He stated "French intervention in Mali will seal the fate of their hostages". Surprisingly, for France, they ignored the propaganda. Related:

I think that I would tell M. le Prˇsident that maybe he should start with all those "youths" setting fire to cars in the 'burbs de Paris.

Long time member Moshe who is so tough he would scare everyone away if we knew who he is.
Greyrooster has been banned for 5 years and you're to stupid to understand the obvious. Tough guys named Moshe aren't to bright. But they do make good fried chicken. I think tough guy Moshe has fried a lot of chicken.
