France Cancels Summer Events Because "We Are In A Situation of War"

One of the lamentable impacts of the spate of terror attacks in France has been that local authorities are being forced to cancel certain summer events.
After the Bastille Day truck attack in Nice the interior minister Bernard Cazeneuve told mayors across the country not to think twice about cancelling an event if they thought security could not be guaranteed.
During a visit to Lyon, Defence Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said France had to take the threat seriously.
“We are in a situation of war. So, for the moment, we have to forbid demonstrations if security norms cannot be respected,” he said.
“Everyone has to understand that we are in this situation and that it brings constraints.”
The list of cancelled events has started to grow.

"We are in a situation of war..."

No, you are in a situation worse than war. In a war you fight back.
