Charles Krauthammer makes this interesting observation:  we are now in a new stage of the war on terror.  ( http://www.nationalreview.com/article/396499/obama-charlie-who-char... ; focusing not on his complaints about Obama, but on terror attacks )

Stage one:  terrorists from abroad come into the West to attack.  9/11.

Stage two:  lone-wolf terrorists within the West attack their countrymen.

Stage three:  linkup -- homegrown terrorists in the West coordinated and instructed from abroad.

Is this the beginning of something, or can France and others roll it back?

Meanwhile, in the Third World, we've gone from terror attacks to conquest of territory (Iraq, Syria, Nigeria).   

Also in the Third World, the newly conquered areas are under rule by terror (not to be confused with terrorism); that's a new development.  Maybe it'll be temporary, or end after all Christians, pagans, Yazidi, and Muslims of the wrong branch are exterminated.

There are also things that aren't new but are being noticed more.  [Edit: removing reference to French "no-go" zones -- I haven't had time to vet the story.] The terror of living Jewish in France.  What else?

So:  what else do we know, or can we infer, about general trends?  And what's next?

Ethnic cleansing in France is under way; maybe that's really stage 3.

Another idea comes from this video (link below).  I find it hard to believe, and would like confirmation (or better yet, refutation!).  But if it's true, I think we can see stage four being prepared:  homegrown terrorist cells organized, trained, and directed within the US.  I don't know how long it takes to lay the groundwork for attack, but surely it won't be too long before we see the outcome (again, if this is authentic).

I thought his argument that these types of attacks attract too much attention to ISIS, who were essentially unknown not that long ago, leading to its inevitable destruction at the hands of the west.

The author thought the missile strike on Assad's air base meant we would start helping ISIS again, but that this latest attack on Paris will turn Trump back to fighting ISIS.
Be careful with your exhuberance. Le Pen's often do well in the first round.

I'm very optimistic, but I mostly wanted an opportunity to say the Madam President schtick.
