At The Financial Times: Three views of Paris, November 13, 2015, Part Two

A November 15, 2015 editorial titled ‘Time for engagement, not fearful retreat‘ Subtitle ‘Solidarity and thoughtful action are the only means to defeat terrorism’

The rhetorical farming of this editorial : ‘civilised world’ vs ‘mindless barbarity’ and ‘Further co-ordinated action is demanded by all concerned outside powers to destroy this totalitarian menace on the ground.’ More bellicose rhetoric, framed as Western Rationalism’s response to Political Islam’s demonstrable irrationalism: a monument to the myth of Western political blamelessness!
