Unanswered questions of Paris attacks
The theory that doesn’t hold together: Pic courtesy Independent
Since investigation is not a process our newspapers follow, let me ask these questions on your behalf in the wake of Friday the 13th attacks in Paris.
WHY SUCH TERRORISTS ARE ALWAYS KILLED, NEVER CAPTURED ALIVE
In the Bataclan Concert Hall, there were more than 1,000 people at the rock concert. In all four suicide bombers attacked it. All of them were killed.
Same was the case in Charlie Hebdo or Kosher Grocery Store attacks in January 2015.
Was their any attempt on the part of police in Paris to capture them alive? We don’t know.
WHY TERRORISTS ARE KNOWN BUT NOT CAUGHT IN THE WEST
The UK Daily Mail says: “One terrorist identified as young Frenchman was known to authorities.”
Same was the pattern in January 2015 Charlie Hebdo attack. French security agencies had known the perpetrators for nearly a decade. They followed them but never moved in on them.
And this, mind you, when the French security apparatus has been given unprecedented powers by law.
WHY TERRORISTS ARE ALWAYS FOUND WITH THEIR PASSPORTS
AFP, Reuters, ITV, AP, Fox News all reported that a Syrian passport was found near the body of an alleged terrorists.
Same happened when CBS reported in the wake of 9/11 that a passerby found passport of a hijacker. The two buildings were engulfed in fire yet the passerby could stand there and pick up the passport in perfect condition. Such massive metallic buildings were done to dust but the passport was in prime condition.
Or take the case in Charlie Hebdo attack. A gunman’s ID card was found on the seat of their get-away car. Quickly the link was established with a terrorist network in Yemen. As it would be now against Syria.
IF IT IS A BLOWBACK, WHY ISIS LEAVES OUT US OR ISRAEL
The anti-ISIS coalition is led by the United States. Yet the terrorist organization appears to have gone for a soft partner in France.
Okay let’s assume that ISIS knows France’s past; that this European nation has meddled in Middle East since 1917; that France were the colonial masters of Syria.
But then is ISIS so stupid that it actually strengthens the French government of Francois Hollande who has waged a war against them?
Don’t they know that Hollande would be strengthened against its main opponent, the people’s choice in Marine Le Pen of National Front in the 2017 French elections, by their very act?
All those political parties, like Pegida in Germany, the UK Independence Party, are arrayed against the current establishment of Europe which has waged war against ISIS..
But now ISIS has actually strengthened those very forces that have vowed to wipe them out. They have increased Europe’s subservience to Washington.
Isn’t it strange?
WHY ISIS WOULD LOOK FOR REFUGEES RETURN
ISIS wants to capture Iraq and Syria. Right?
The fleeing masses, the refugees, actually help their cause in destruction and chaos.
By hardening the stance of the West, and France, they have now shut the doors on refugees in Europe. France has already declared its borders closed. Now US and Europe would vow to give back millions of distressed refugees their much-vaunted homes. Give back the land that belonged to them. So refugees must return to their homes.
This could only happen if the ISIS is eliminated. Why would ISIS extend such an invitation?
If ISIS is so stupid, how it could deceive the entire French intelligence apparatus for one whole day in Paris? Or if ISIS is intelligent why it would cause the Paris attack and bring the doom on themselves?
SO WHO STANDS TO BENEFIT FROM THE PARIS ATTACKS
This much is certain.. The waning support for US-led coalition against the removal of Syria’s Assad would now get a fresh lease of life.
Just as it happened after 9/11 when then president George Bush seized the moment to declare a “War on Terror.”
The media—90 per cent of all US media is controlled by only six oligarchs—have lost little time in comparing the Paris attacks to 9/11.
Hollande in doubly quick time declared the attacks as “unprecedented.” (we have only been witnessing unprecedented events in the last 14 years). Sometimes we are told these are satanic terrorists; at other times these are “good terrorists.”
President Barack Obama has given a call to help France and end terrorism. It’s another matter that Obama didn’t have two words of condolence for 200 Russian tourists who lost their lives in a plane crash in Egypt recently.
Now something terrible is going to happen.
The West’s campaign in Middle East, presently in tatters because of Russia’s initiative, would receive a fresh lease of life. They would have the support of their citizens. West could now adopt the policy of naked aggression against Syria’s Assad. Just before the talks on Syria were to commence in Vienna. Or the G20 summit was to take place. Not to forget the Climate Change meeting in Paris in December.
The nuclear-powered French aircraft Charles de Gaulle is already in Syrian coast. The West would now have sufficient reasons to wage a war against this mythical terrorist organization who is able to stand up to Syria, Iraq, Lebanon’s Hezbollah, Iran and Russian military all on its own. The sinister motive though is not to get ISIS but to nail Assad who has survived four years of their machinations.
