France

Last week's terrorist attacks in Paris were beyond horrible.

I keep wondering, what is it about French security that keeps allowing terrorist attacks?

A magazine office got shot up in January.  Several sites were hit Friday evening.

I've read and seen reports that terrorist networks are highly sophisticated these days, tech savvy, with enablers inside and outside the country.  Several nations are doing a pretty good job at harboring terrorists, Syria being the latest.

No border system is perfect.  No law enforcement agency is perfect.  There are risks we have to take if we want to live in a free society, whether it be in Scranton, PA, USA, or Paris, France.

Trying to bomb terrorists out of existence is not a bad thing, and I fear "boots on the ground" is next.  I also fear that despite the best efforts of the world's free and decent people, terrorists and terrorism will be with us for a very, very long time.
