    Don't worry, I'm an American and am used to shootings.
    take care.

    The Calais refugee camp has apparently been set alight. It'll be interesting to see if this is ongoing rioting or a revenge attack.

    Will Europe end its suicidal refugee policy now?

    Is there no depth that these people will sink to. I will gander a guess that most of the people came with the refugee wave. And people criticise Australia for their policy. If anyone is to blame it is the left and their open border policies.

    That's unlikely, the munitions and organisation probably mean it took months to plan within France. That's not to say future attacks across Europe won't be done by the current influx however.

    That's correct. I'm wondering what were the DGSI doing? It's France for God's sake. No phone/internet chatter being red flagged? Just a couple of years and the whole of Europe would see fireworks and innocents being killed.

    In the US state and local police and federal agencies have a huge network of confidential informants, which makes an operation like this difficult to hide. I'm guessing now with the Charlie Hebdo attack and now this, that the same does not exist in France?

    In theory you could send the the active shooters/suicide bombers into Europe hidden amongst the current refugee arrivals. They are after all disposable 'assets' with a very finite life expectancy. On the other hand your quartermaster, surveillance and planning teams (if they exist) would need to be long term residents in order to set the operation up and they are not disposable assets, not if you mean to launch additional attacks at a later date.

    As long as the suicide team is given dates/times and locations to RV they don't even have to know much if anything about the Op. In fact it's better if they don't since the chief planners/provocateurs can't be sure one or more of the idiots they've selected for the Op is on someones watch list or not - and having even one attacker picked up in advance would cruel everything if it turned out they knew what and when they were supposed to be attacking. As a bonus using 'refugees' for the attack would mean you could send people who have already been well trained in the use of automatic weapons, explosives and grenades etc in a war zone unlike 'local' recruits who can't easily be trained up without risking exposure. IS and its affiliates would be as well aware as we are that several Ops using local volunteers have failed in the past to cause the casualties expected because the would-be terrorist involved didn't know how to use the weapon he's been provided with.

    All the above is speculation on my part, sadly time will tell whether it was locals or imports who were used for this atrocity.
