Muslims Wage War Against France - French Police Casualty Rate Higher Than American Rate In Iraq
Nikolas Sarkozy looks as if he doesn't know what to do. Who can blame him?
Today's edition of the London Telegraph contains an article wherein the head of the Police Union in France declares,
"We are in a state of civil war, orchestrated by radical Islamists. This is not a question of urban violence any more, it is an intifada ..."
My friend Blueslord from Actual Jihad has translated an article from the French paper Le Figaro which indicates that this year police casualties will reach 15% of the total police force:
"Violent acts are rising in an exponential proportion", says a speaker from the Police. "If this tendency continues, we will have 15% of the policemen hurt in a year".
That means French police police are suffering a higher number of casualties than are American armed forces in Iraq. The total number of casualties in Iraq per year is approximately 6,800, which represents about 4.5% of total American forces.
The casualty rate for the French police force will be over 3 times higher than that of the American military forces in Iraq. That is a stunning statistic.
It seems France really is at war, and thus far the French police are showing no signs that they intend to surrender, unlike the British police.
