War “must now be declared”

The National Front isn’t screwing around:

Marine Le Pen, head of the anti-immigrant National Front, disparaged the government’s efforts against terrorism.

“The war against the scourge of fundamentalism hasn’t started, it must now be declared,” she said in a statement. “That is the deep wish of the French, and I will put all my energy so that they are finally heard and the necessary fight is finally undertaken.”

The war will start against fundamentalism, but it will eventually encompass all non-Western immigrants. War is the most blunt of instruments and the West has absolutely no need for them. Note that the Nice killer was no fundamentalist.

The center-right parties are belatedly starting to at least address the issue, but they have no credibility anymore.
