What some lucky Parisians have outside their windows: the migrant war at the Stalingrad Metro station. (Image: Screen grab of video, via Arnault Chene, YouTube)
Perhaps the oddest thing about the migrant invasion of Europe is that so many Europeans are adapting, apparently with little protest, to seeing the streets they live and work in militarized.
There is no strategy on the part of European governments to reverse this trend and restore the non-militarized situation that was normal – seemingly permanent – for as much as 70 years. Until the Islamist attacks in 2015, it had been that long since Paris was a war zone.
The difference, in the period May 1940 to August 1944, was that there was a war being fought to liberate Paris from the German occupation. There was a vision for restoring a non-militarized Paris, one in which the streets were roamed by neither enemy marauders nor French soldiers keeping order.
In 2016, there is no such vision or strategy.
HOPEFULLY, THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN EUROPEANS AND AMERICANS!
