Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Sligthly off the topic of the diary, but on the topic of the title : does the French government really believes it is stopping terrorists by having three armed soldiers walking armed patrols around La Défense?

Automatic guns are useless against hidden bombs typical of terrorist attacks in France. The ongoing militarization of society that makes seeing armed soldiers (not gendarmes) doing "you are safe" propaganda in a civilian area seem normal frightens me.
