If an American City Is Attacked …

Many people have read reactions of world leaders to the attacks in Paris.

Let’s imagine how United States leaders would react had the attacks in Paris been attacks on an American city. Say the city attacked is Paris, USA.

Repeat, this is a tale of what ifs. It’s not a news report, but what American progressives might call as a mean spirited extremist story.

Possible reactions might be:

— United States Secretary of State John Kerry paraphrased what he said about war in Syria, that climate change remains this nation’s greatest threat.

He added that maybe now people will understand why the Obama administration supported open borders between Mexico and the United States and between Canada and the United States, but attempted to limit Muslims emigrating from Europe to 100,000, and no more than ten percent being members of a so-called terrorist group.

— U.S. President Barack Obama deplored the violence and said that it was more evidence that stricter gun control is needed.

Obama linked the attacks on an American city to extremists who opposed his comprehensive immigration reform proposal, which he implied encourages such attacks.

We can understand, he said, why people who seek a better life are hurt and frustrated when they are denied that opportunity.

Being his usual, thoughtful self, the president did not point to Islam extremists or anyone else as possible perpetrators of the attack on an American city, nor did he label the attack terrorism, but boldly and courageously called the attacks an outrageous attempt to terrorize innocent civilians.

Obama showed that he is the thought leader in Washington when he called the incident a heartbreaking situation and an attack on all humanity. These phrases were used almost as often as this favorite of progressives: “moving forward.”

— German Chancellor Angela Merkel called the attacks in America, as she did those in Paris, apparent terrorist attacks.

— U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter aped his boss’ theme by calling the attacks an assault on human dignity. In somewhat of a twist, he reminded listeners that, after the attacks on Paris, he had reminded the world that the United States stood with the people of France and its vibrant, multicultural democracy, then Carter said that we now hope that the world stands with the United States and our vibrant, multicultural democracy.

— British Prime Minister David Cameron extended his thoughts and prayers, to which deity he didn’t say, to the victims of the attacks on the American city. In an off-the-record interview, he reportedly said he hoped that Britain’s open-border policy toward Muslims proves more of a successful appeasement than it seems to have been in France.

— The Democrat-controlled mainstream media, writing in unison, paraphrased Iran’s reply after the Paris attack by stressing that Iran itself has been a victim of terrorism, and so have other Arab countries, and parroted the Iranian sentiment that the groups that committed the American city crimes are not loyal to any type of divine religions, including Islam.

— A spokesman for the China Foreign Ministry expressed shock at the extent of damage from the attacks, and pledged to quickly repair Chinese-owned industries, estimated at 70 percent of the city’s structures.
