Well it seems that the French take revenge on Raqqa, for the attacks that took place the day before yesterday in Paris. Whether it will help is the big question, but there will be more deaths certainly.


The bombing was in retaliation for the terrorist attacks in Paris, which ISIS has claimed responsibility. In the statement issued by ISIS, said France has called the attacks on themselves by targeting goals from ISIS and to attack in Syria and Iraq.








Aircraft from the French Air Force have carried out heavy bombing in the Syrian city of Raqqa, which is considered by ISIS as the capital of the caliphate. Ten warplanes dropped twenty bombs, reports the French Ministry of Defence. According to the French they bombed a command centre, a training centre, a training camp and an ammunition depot all were hit.





Earlier today France and the United States spoke, to increase the number of air strikes on ISIS targets in Syria and Iraq. That agreement they made in the margins of the G20 summit in Turkey.


Somehow if feels wrong to do the right thing ...

Tough position to be in. Some sort of action needed to be taken but these are the same tactics that creates these terrorist groups and supplies them with endless troops. Tbh I don't know how I'd react if my family was killed by a foreign military and chalked up as collateral damage. I might find myself fighting against them aligned with a terrorist group getting my jihad on.

It sends the immediate message that "we won't be intimidated by you, and if you hit us or our citizens, we'll hit you. Keep control of your underlings."

I know Its good to eradicate ISIS , if it pays off I don't know . looking at al qaida you don't hear that much from them at the moment so it will slow down if you get the head pieces of such organization and the money runs dry then it might be possible, I still hear the words from al qaida , we are not as crazy as ISIS ...

Bomb a city (at night) out of revenge.

War never begins with reprisals, but usually ends up that way.

The message to the Syrians in that town is what, again?

If they even know where the bombs came from and eventually discover they are being bombed for what happened in Paris, they'll just scratch their heads and wonder about the mad men running things in the West.

The nation of Syria had nothing to do with what happened.

Bombing Syrian cities in retaliation is also ~exactly~ what the terrorists wanted us to do.

It's about time we stopped dancing to the terrorists tune.

You have to wonder if there are even any ISIS targets left in Syria. The U.S. and Russia have supposedly been bombing ISIS training camps, hide outs and recruitment centers. After all this time why would the U.S. and Russia leave any ISIS targets untouched? Maybe France should be bombing ISIS sites in Iraq and other countries where they're recruiting?

Terrorists?

It screams "false flag" all over it ... ISIS, we all know it's Western affiliated. 9/11 it was Al Qaida, CIA affiliated.

Of course, these "terrorists" are so dumb they go enrage the whole world so they come and bomb the middle east. Now, I wonder how does that pay for them? In dollars, or rubles?

Criminal insanity ... French are as dumb as door nails.

Don' think the nation of Syria was bombed....unless you call an ISIS training center, command center and ammunition depot, the nation of Syria.

Did the nation of Syria ask these french idiots to go and bomb this place? No?

So, it's another "idiot" that decides they need hammer something, because they don't have a brain to analyze and think critically about the situation.
