The Louvre preemptive strike may have saved some lives in France. The soldier does appear to have acted in time in dealing with a fanatic.
The aim of lone wolves may just be to create a sense of panic among people. However small the incidents may be, they help lend legitimacy to the recent travel bans announced by US President Donald Trump.
Incidentally, France and Germany were among the many liberal nations which rushed to condemn Trump for the immigration curbs.
They are those who, when slapped on one cheek, merrily show their other one, taking Jesus Christ’s exhortation too seriously.
Only the wise learn lessons, whether they are people or nations!
