    " Trevedic said the French had to get used to the idea that terrorism was here to stay and could not be eradicated.

    "We will have to accept this reality without deluding ourselves. It means we have to accept that attacks will succeed and there will be deaths.""

    France seems resigned to their eventual defeat. Sadly they've had some practice in this area.

    Nothing new here. France, as with many countries, has been experiencing periodic 'terrorism' for decades and has faced it quite well.

    The scale is very different. They've got suburbs of major cities that the police won't even venture into. The French are increasingly worried and seem resigned to their fate.

    That's what happens when you allow unlimited immigration from the Middle East and North Africa.

    John Kerry said the same thing about the United States. Terrorism is a nuisance that will have to be accepted.
