In the wake of the Paris horrific coordinated attacks, leaders from the world's top economies ended on Monday a two-day summit at a resort in Turkey with a vow to step up the fight against terrorism. The attacks that left 132 people dead and hundreds of injured shrouded the nine hours of formal talks that were already set to include discussions of terrorism and a refugee crisis stemming from the mass exodus of people from war-torn Syria.

    But who are the terrorists? The West who invaded and destroyed Iraq and caused all this mess where have died hundreds of thousands of people or the Islamic State that killed 200 Westerners and 224 Russians?

    For me it is clear: terrorists are this bunch of Westerners who proclaim themselves Christians and civilized. And I think, in their full ignominy, that their lives are worth more than the lives of others.

    The war started it was you. Ask forgiveness from God and Muslims and leave the Middle East.

    Enjoy and destroy your chemical weapons.

    We don't have chemical weapons. Your best friends the Russkis do

    Where do you bring in Christians. France is a secular state.

    As the west is such a horrible place, why are Muslims in their millions fleeing from their Middle Eastern homelands to come to come here?

    Why are you SO dumb ?

    @1. Try a bit of history, thicko. The middle east has been killing and dying for 5,000 years. We defend. Islamics kill, attack, conquer, occupy, extend depravity and kill.

    If it weren't for the Israelis, the place deserves nuking. But at least we might be able to flatten it down to bedrock and leave nothing alive.

    Then the B-52s, B-1s and B2s can turn their attention to the world's foremost homicidal country.

    Hey Brasiliero!

    You'd better watch out. Since your beloved Argentina is a member of the G20 (though God only knows why), you've left yourselves wide open to be attacked by those 'terrorists' that you so admire. Yes Brasiliero, we all know that you are Argentine. No real Brazilian would support Argentina so vehemently, even on issues that have an adverse affect on Brazil.

    Better run and hide from the big 'bad' muslims, because South America is an easy target, Argentina more so than most as your government has stolen all the money so there is little left for defence.

    If you think that way, I have no answer for you.

    The mechanism, Article 42.7 of the Lisbon treaty, has never before been invoked. It is modelled on the Nato Article Five commitment, and says that if a country is “the victim of armed aggression on its territory, the other Member States shall have towards it an obligation of aid and assistance by all the means in their power.”
    Geoffrey Van Orden, a Tory MEP and retired British brigadier, said he backed British aid for France but said it was “wholly inappropriate” for the EU to “pretend that it could displace Nato”.
    “Without wishing to be side-tracked by pettiness, we should not do anything to enable others to assert the ‘more Europe’ agenda on the back of the crisis.”
    “If international military action is required then this should either be a matter for Nato, or, if that arouses Russian sensitivities, then a coalition of the willing in which we also play our part.”
    France today asked Britain and other EU countries to join airstrikes on Syria to “lighten the load
    France has set a precedent for using the EU as the first response to military attack, marking a decisive shift away from Nato.

    the bloc’s 27 defence ministers spoke in French ”We are all French,” they told Jean-Yves Le Drian

    One feels one is somehow using political will to gain political power in a very dad situation.
    Defeat ISIS by all means, that is the goal nothing else.
