In the midst of a wave of terror attacks across Paris, French President Francois Hollande is taking extreme measures, including some that have not been seen since the middle of the last century.
Via The Daily Caller:
French President Francois Hollande has announced that his country’s borders have been closed and the military has been dispatched to the streets.
In an address to the nation, Hollande declared a state of emergency and said the army is being deployed in and around Paris. He called the attacks taking place in Paris, which have so far left 60 dead and 100 people as hostages, a “horror.”
He added that French security forces are assaulting a site in Paris. This is the first time France has declared a state of emergency since the Algerian war, which took place between 1954 and 1962. It is also the first time a curfew has been imposed since the dark days of world war two in 1944.The state of emergency means the state is in complete control and can enter private property at will. Paris has also shut down its Metro.
Extreme times call for extreme measures.
