France’s Weak Points in its War Against “Islamic State”

On 13 November 2015, France witnessed the most lethal attack on its soil since World War II—the coordinated terrorist attacks brought death, injury and trauma to the nation and the world. It also raised some fundamental questions: Why is it that France, despite its military and intelligence resources, which were deployed to fight terrorism in recent years, was so vulnerable to a few gunmen striking at Paris—the very heart of the country? With this in mind, which dimensions should France urgently include in its counter-terrorism policy to confront this unprecedented threat?As President Hollande’s France heads towards a fully-fledged war against the Islamic State, the answer to these questions is in the identification of France’s weak points, those that were so well identified by the enemy.
