Here is something to think about concerning the troubles in France. As I understand it, most of the troublemakers, if that is not an incorrect term, are from North Africa. Now take yourself back some 40 to 45 years when Algeria was still a French colony. There was something you might call a colonial war going on. Eventually the French gave up for one reason or another and went home, leaving behind lots of French settlers.

Anyone know what ever happen to those who were left behind? Look it up in your Funk and Wagnalls. There was a lot of unhappiness in France with the way things turned out and some French army units had a minor rebellion themselves only to be disbanded after it was all over. Unrest in the form of the "secret army organization" for a few years but by then it was too late.

This has nothing at all to do with what you might do when the mob comes down your street but I wonder why none of the above has ever been mentioned in the news? Roland, where are you when we need you?
Shoot low, sheriff. They're riding Shetlands!
Underneath the starry flag, civilize 'em with a Krag,
and return us to our own beloved homes!
Buy War Bonds.
