World at war - terrorism attacks France and civilization as we know it

Our civilized world has tried and failed to destroy the root causes of terrorism.  We've tried military, humanitarian and diplomatic strategies. Additionally, civilized nations have tried to build coalitions with the Muslims whose civilizations are also at risk for being cosnumed by terrorism.

It's beyond ironic to realize how the French have been the victims of wars for centuries. In the 20th century, the French were the victims of World Wars I and II.  Now in the 21st century, the French were the victims of the Charlie Hebdo attack on the free press.  On January 7, 2015, two Islamist gunmen forced their way into the Paris headquarters of Charlie Hebdo and opened fire, killing twelve: staff cartoonists Charb, Cabu, Honoré, Tignous and Wolinski, economist Bernard Maris, editors Elsa Cayat and Mustapha Ourrad, guest Michel Renaud, maintenance worker Frédéric Boisseau and police officers Brinsolaro and Merabet, and wounding eleven, four of them seriously.  

On Friday, November 13, 2015, in the same year as the Charlie Hebdo attack, the terrorists struck again with even more vengence than the January 7th, assault.  

Early reports out of Paris being reported on international news sources are claiming over 100 and perpahs as many as 150 innocent people killed on Friday, by a band of terrorists who somehow had access to AK47 murderous guns.  (One question I have is how the band of murderous terrorists obtained the AK47s and the ammunition needed to kill so many innocent people in Paris. Witnesses have said during interviews that it seemed as though the murderers even reloaded their weapons.)

This diabolic attack must bring the civilized world together for the purpose of eliminating international terrorism.  

Terrorism is clearly becoming immune to the failed strategies being used to fight the growing number of senseless attacks on innocent people. The purpose of these serial attacks is to continue to generate fear.  It's obviously working.

The world must work together to eliminate terrorist groups and this effort must include a Muslim response. Terrorism is threatening all civilization as we know it today. Therefore, Muslim nations must support an international response to end the root cause, and the networks where terrorists are recruited and trained.

A state of war  can no longer be ignored and is now evident. Ironically, the French victims of the Parisian attacks are again, as in the past, bringing urgency to fight the murderers who have evil intentions to change the world as we know it.  

France is an American ally. It's essential for Americans to support the French people by collaborating to destroy those who purpetrated violence against innocents. Otherwise, it's just a matter of time, the terrorism attacks will find their way to the US.
