French declaring war – more satire?

After the terrorist attacks on Paris, the French Prime Minister said that he considered the country to be at war with terrorism…

I do wish the French Prime Minister wouldn’t describe France as being “at war” with terrorism. For two main reasons – firstly, being at war with an idea is silly and unwinnable, as shown by America’s runaway failure in its war on drugs.

Secondly, given France’s less than stellar record in warfare with anything and anybody, it will merely encourage the terrorists, providing them with the expectation of imminent surrender.
