    Paris is indicating they think the fire was started accidentally.

    Oh well no doubt they're going to run around and tell everyone that it's not all Muslims as if anybody thinks that. But they're rather useless outside of hysterics. I'm wondering what's going to happen in France. The French have been revolting against their government for quite a few days now. And their government is merely just a sock puppet of the European Union. In the European Union wants them to taken all sorts of people from the developing world. So I wonder if the French vote in a government that proposes a Frexit will they expel all the people they took in.

    Remember Denmark expelled so-called Moroccans after one of them stabbed to death the descendant of Van Gogh.

    I have no idea what they will do. Did they respond heavily after Nice? That was pretty bad and they didn't seem to do much, if anything.

    The incompetent Frogs aren't reporting that it took them over 2 hours to start spraying water on the fire. 2 hours! It was already toast by then.

    An article doesn't prove anything. The american mirror is a known right wing rag. So no, I didn't read it and I don't care to.

    So again, where is the proof?

    The French government responded that doing that would probably cause the building to collapse, which every non-idiot already knew.

    I asked a firefighter about that one time, like a tactical air drop against a structure.

    Apparently its very dangerous, both to rescuers and anybody inside.

    Its been done with helicopters but generally with poor results and when there is no other way.
