France Deploys 10,000 Troops to Patrol Streets in Wake of Paris Attacks

(ANTIMEDIA) As the dust settles in the wake of the Paris terror attacks, the world continues to watch the reaction of the French government. Over the weekend, President Francois Hollande launched military strikes in coordination with U.S. forces. Additional measures announced include the deployment of 10,000 troops around the country; the amendment of state of emergency laws to allow for a three-month extension of house raids; and security operations in France, Belgium, Greece, and Germany in the manhunt for ISIS operatives responsible for Friday’s terror attacks.

The 10,000 soldiers will join the 7,000 already deployed after the JanuaryCharlie Hebdo killings, which took 17 lives. Following the 11/13 attacks, which have thus far killed 132 people and injured hundreds more, 4,000 to 5,000 troops will patrol the streets of Paris in a drastically expanded military presence in the French capital.  read more

10 Comments on France Deploys 10,000 Troops to Patrol Streets in Wake of Paris Attacks

  1. 10,000 troops for a population of 67,000,000 means one troop for every 6,700 people. Kinda thin, yes? Hey, Hollande, how about a push to repeal your citizen disarmament laws? Individuals have a right to defend themselves.

  2. I read another article on that site called “Following Paris Terror Attacks, Only Three Things Are Guaranteed”

    What BS, the second point about islamophobia and xenophobia and anti- immigrant was just a lie, no other way to put it.

    “The fact of the matter is that only a tiny minority of people who identify as Muslim commit terrorist acts. The likelihood of white Europeans and Americans alike committing an act of terror is exponentially greater than that of Islamic extremists (cops in the U.S. kill exponentially more than both of these groups combined).”

    Yes a tiny minority of muslims are terrorists but the overwhelming majority of terrorists are muslims.

    The same with police killings, over 99 percent are legal killings of criminals where public or officer safety is at stake.

    F%&*(&^$#ing lefties make it sound as though a law abiding citizen is at danger of being shot and killed by police.

  3. What, no hashtag? How does Hollande think he’ll win this fight without the sternly worded letter or a catchy hashtag?

  4. From the link
    [state of emergency for three months]……modifications will grant the French government the right to put entire neighborhoods on lock-down, including strictly enforced curfews, house raids without judicial oversight, weapons seizure, search and arrest of suspicious individuals, and broad powers of censorship. The law will also allow for the closure of theaters and meeting halls, as well as stronger control over France’s borders….”

    An armed population, it’s not gonna happen.
