The jihadist operation in Paris, on November 13, 2015, was the collateral damage of the Western support to the so-called Syrian revolution, a Sunni radical uprising against the secular government of Syria, which began in 2011 and that global jihadists joined from worldwide
In that Western proxy war against Russia, the local branch of al Qaeda, Jabhat al Nusra (victory front), was an objective ally, was doing a good job. For internal ego reasons, the Iraqi branch of al Qaeda became the Caliphate (ISIS) late June 2014, was then already involved in Syria. The new organization was more prejudicial to Western interests, but even in this case, John Kerry confided it later during a private conversation, the US were regarding it as a leverage to constraint the ouster of Bashar Assad, did not counteract its expansion, until the Russian direct intervention late September 2015
Among Western leaders, François Hollande may have been the most fanatical against Syria, that France had occupied 26 years, until the independence in 1946. In August 2013, Hollande attempted to convince Barack Obama to bomb the Syrian secular forces. The price would be high and on November 13, 2015, the jihadists carried out in Paris a spectacular terrorist operation
The massacre lasted three hours, in a city which is yet numbering per capita twice more police officers than New York city. Nine jihadists killed 131 civilians, no police officer was injured. That death toll is the result of incompetence within French intelligence and police services. The November 13 events were a kind of large scale Uvalde. As a former member of these agencies, I have already written two articles, one in English, with a large part on the Syrian context, one in French, about the debacle in the evening of the attacks.
History is clarifying actuality, that is the interest of such article. When the West is currently supporting with the same fanaticism, in a new proxy war against Russia, in Ukraine, a Nazi deep State which is controlling the security services and the army, a nebula of Nazi paramilitary forces, when worldwide volunteers are often Western Nazi militants, when the weapons that the West is sending are spreading on the black market, I guess that the backlash may be cruel in the US and Europe
