French President Francois Hollande declared war on ISIS in France and in the terrorist group's stronghold in Syria.

The president spoke at a news conference on Friday in the aftermath of the deadly terrorist attacks that killed 129 people in Paris, France.

By daybreak Monday, French police conducted dozens of raids on homes in the muslim sections of Paris. Hundreds of suspected terrorists were taken into custody or placed on house arrest.

The French defense ministry confirmed that France and its allies launched airstrikes on ISIS sites in Raqqa, Syria.

One of the targets included ISIS's main headquarters located near where ISIS executioner Mohammed "Jihadi John" Emwazi was killed by a drone strike as he sat in a vehicle on Thursday.

ISIS deliberately set up its headquarters in densely populated areas of the city. But drones can hit targets with pinpoint accuracy with very few civilian casualties.

Meanwhile, American President Obama is going ahead with his plans to bring 10,000 Syrians to New Orleans next year. Obama's spokesman claims the 10,000 Syrians will be "vetted" to weed out the ISIS members who are hiding among them.

At least one of the Paris attackers traveled to Europe by hiding among Syrian refugees.

    I feel sorry for the dead all around the world, that ISIS got at last week and the innocent, abused, tortured, starved and murdered Syrian people. They are being held hostage in their country by Terrorist and the country's president.

  • BatShatt

    New Orleans?! How worried should I be Auntie?

  • Just Keya

    Lord, please be with the innocent people, and protect them from all hurt, harm, and danger. Because this may get worse, before it gets better. Amen.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Prayers for protection for all innocent people. Something tells that it will be needed in abundance. These are the times I hate my baby is in the Army.

  • Buttercup

    Francois ain't playing with em.

  • MookieFly

    This ish is escalating quickly. I keep telling folks another world war is around the corner. How long we doing this whole war on terror?

  • harley_quinn2.0

    I heard this morning on the news that the Governor of Alabama is refusing to accept Syrian immigrants.

  • Just Keya

    Can he do that? And how would he stop them?

  • Yoni

    They done got mufvkkn tied of playin with folks. LOL

  • Buttercup

    Unfortunately, I have to agree with you. WWIII is imminent. Queues War's "Why Can't We Be Friends?"

  • harley_quinn2.0

    I'm not really sure. We shall see how this plays out.

  • Just Keya

    He is leaving them open to all kinds of discrimination law suites. smh.

  • MookieFly

    I don't think he can or there would have been a lot of states a while ago that stop taking Mexican immigrants

  • Just Keya

    THIS. That's why I was like, sir, get a damn grip. Lip service. You don't have the power to do that. And if you try, go on and get sued and pay out the ass. Dummy.

  • 88

    Russia's getting ready to rag tag frenchy's ass in 5....4.....3....

  • Just Keya

    It's a real shame that people are willing to let the Syrian people be murdered. This country was built on the backs of immigrants. Now you want to tell them to fluck off. Bet if they had something you wanted, they could come right on in. smdh.

  • BubblingBrownSuga

    Don't worry, President Trump ain't having it.

  • MISSMEWITDATBULL

    ...Wait - I had to go re-read. 10,000 Syrians in New Orleans? For real??

  • harley_quinn2.0

    It looks like Louisiana is following suit. Bobby Jindal just signed order to stop syrian immigrants from coming to Louisiana. This is just madness.

  • Buttercup

    Are you really surprised though Keya? Black folks are still fighting the good fight and they BROUGHT us here.

  • Just Keya

    He is going to be sued. And really I don't think he has that type of power.

  • ML

    and texas

  • 88

    Huh? ISIS is the US government/NATO so if anyone should be blamed it should be them.

  • MISSMEWITDATBULL

    **off topic** they're saying Charlie Sheen is going to announce he's HIV positive on the today show...

  • ML

    ON what basis could he be sued?

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Wow I don't know how to feel about this at all .... numb ..... too many innocent being subjected to the mess .... sad world

  • Just Keya

    Nope. Not at all. It's just sad. But let it be us dying, people would be mad as all get out if other countries said, nope. stay yall dying asses right there.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Well it looks like Bobby Jindal is trying to prevent that. He just signed an executive order to block Syrians from entering the state.

  • Just Keya

    Discrimination

  • Yoni

    Did he get it from all the Tiger blood he was drinking?

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    with very few civilian casualties.

    _______

    But what about the few ... :-(

  • MookieFly

    But how is that even possible? Are they gonna have border patrol, sniffing people for hints of lamb and spices? It's just so silly.

  • Just Keya

    People don't care about them. SO very sad

  • Buttercup

    If it doesn't benefit the powers that be in this county, they don't care and aren't interested.

  • Just Keya

    Sadly, I know. smh. Such a damn shame.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Man this is just .... ugh

  • Just Keya

    Exactly.

  • Just Keya

    Have no care for human life. Its sad girl. So very sad.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Chile shut yo mouf ....... chile

  • ML

    I am still not understanding.
    How are they being discriminated against by not being allowed to settle somewhere?

  • Buttercup

    *cackles*

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Very sad .... very sad

  • MISSMEWITDATBULL

    Either that, or the multiple hooker sessions, crack binges, iv drug use, who knows what else...

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Lamb ???

  • Just Keya

    You can’t restrict certain nationalities coming to your state. That is discrimination.

  • Buttercup

    I'm no lawyer and only know enough to be dangerous. The governor may be able to do something like this, but the Federal government would probably choose to withhold access to programs a la no roadway infrastructure in Louisiana because they didn't have their legal drinking age at 21 like the government recommended.

  • Buttercup

    I bet GMA is tight.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Right

  • harley_quinn2.0

    It's Charlie. Not saying Charlie is not a big name I expected it to be an A list movie star based on the clues. It's bad all the way around to be honest.

  • ML

    Well what if he said nobody can come right now?
    True that would be unrealistic to enforce but what if he said no new foreigners at all.
    Still discrimination? Because that way you aren't singling out one nationality

  • iWasteTime

    Bobby Jindal, the product of immigrants, is blocking immigrants . . . smh

  • harley_quinn2.0

    EXACTLY!!!

  • Blaque Mahogany

    There are always going to be casualties in war. It is isn't ideal and I am certainly not indifferent or insensitive but it is a war reality.

  • Just Keya

    It might be. That is saying if you are not American you can't come. And that's still discrimination.

  • Milani

    There's a few sites that are saying it's Charlie and he'll make the announcement tomorrow. They're not even speculating, they're just flat out saying he's HIV+

  • Blaque Mahogany

    What do you mean? What are you talking about specifically?

  • MookieFly

    I mean really? All this is gonna do is cause mass hysteria among the stupid. I feel like restless YTs are gonna do something reckless like burn down all the falafel spots. I like those dry ass balls

  • iWasteTime

    It's Charlie???
    A+ list movie start though . . . .
    Man, I just knew it was Leo's azz!

  • BatShatt

    to clarify, i welcome the syrians, ISIS however, is not welcome round these parts.

  • ML

    Well that's crazy to me.
    I can see your point about singling out one group of people, but any place should be able to close its borders to everybody at any time.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Me too. I mean Charlie was the obvious first choice...and I even told my mom he was a lot thinner on his new show. BUT that sick thin mess is in.

  • iWasteTime

    He went from Parveshameet to Bobby and now he don't know anybody

  • AnonymousRose

    None of this chyt makes sense...
    Bin laden killed but allegedly he was thrown overboard, so no proof
    Jihad john, Killed, but his body just magically Vaporized, Some of this chyt just dumb...now you wanna kill innocent people for WHAT? Chile I just don't believe the Lies these folks tell

  • Just Keya

    To my understanding, the Syrian people were trying to come here because they are being murdered, tortured, and held hostage by ISIS in their own country. I feel like saying no they can't come, is saying we don't care if you die. that's too bad.

  • AnonymousRose

    they do it here Everyday in good ole US of A

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    Francois hollered back!

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Oh ok.

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    That's exactly what we're saying. It's a cold world.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    They do it everywhere .... and it's equally sickening

  • harley_quinn2.0

    He trying to be the next Governor Wallace

  • AnonymousRose

    very chile , very sick

  • Just Keya

    I have to respectfully disagree. My family were immigrants when they came here, looking for a better life. And found it. So I am for immigrants. And seeing as how we are the United States, I'm not sure if single states can make that type of decision. However, I'm not sure if they can or not.

  • Just Keya

    smdh. And they have to die for what? It's a damn shame.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    These discussions become emotionally draining to me .... :-( because I see things that make me sad and angry at the same time in comments .... bout to go see if I can find some walking dead spoilers .... be back shortly

  • Just Keya

    WHY did I bust out laughing. Girl BYE! lol

  • Just Keya

    :hugs:

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    um, your work here is done... :ghost:

  • Just Keya

    Please note that Mookie likes dry balls....:kona:

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Newpost .... just when I was about to leave ... mo mess chile

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    Are the Syrians seeking some sort of 'political asylum' in the States? And, how did they decide to settle in the deep south (where folks born there still don't feel welcome in some areas)???

  • Just Keya

    I think so and I don't know. lol

  • Just Keya

    I don't see it

  • GuestSTAR

    For real and didn't waste no time either, but he needs to re-up on his Homeland Security, cause these terrorists are hitting France quite frequently

  • JJ

    Well I can't say that I blame them. Like a previous poster said I'll pray the innocent are safe during and after the drone attacks but honestly I'm all for them lighting these ISIS MF'fers up. I feel extremely sad for innocents living in areas near these maniacs who are just trying to live but the safety of 7 billion other people in the world is important when its time to make a executive decision to weaken and potentially destroy a global terrorist organization. God be with the Innocent and protect them during these trying times. ISIS has proved they didn't care who was responsible for attacks on their members only that they make someone else suffer and that's got to be put to an end.

  • MISSMEWITDATBULL

    ^I hatechu for this.

  • MISSMEWITDATBULL

    Understood & agreed. I can't imagine they would send that many refugees to only 1 city. A sudden influx of 10,000 anyplace would create havoc.

  • Canary Red™

    I read at least 7 states have closed there doors to Syrian refugees...

  • harley_quinn2.0

    All those states have republican governors I imagine.

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    lawd... smh

  • ML

    Well a country can be for immigrants, but they still should have a good vetting process. A country should also be for security of its own citizens.
    I heard Republican members of Congress are looking into what action can be taken to block this plan. Seeing as how we are the United States I don't see how the President alone can make such a decision.

  • Yoni

    :yeshrug:

  • Canary Red™

    YOU BETTER SPEAK BABY!!!! I know at least 5 out of the 7 our Republican!

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    Y'all ready for WWIII?

  • SoChlo

    Please don't fall into the trap of the fear mongering! Have you ever been to New Orleans? That is logistically impossible! 6 families have relocated here. SIX!! I live here and this place is the size of a postage stamp! Where will they go? To the east with the Vietnamese? Uptown to live in Victorian homes? Get a grip on reality people.

  • Monday

    Historically New Orleans was given to French. That's why you see a lot of "Fleur de Lys" and they want to put Syrians there???

    Hummm kay, have to research more on France vs Syrie..

    Don't make any sense

  • SoChlo

    Bobby isn't even his real name. It's Ishmeal or something like that smh. He's really a self hating Indian and this is his ticket to get some recognition in his piss poor bid for the white house.

  • Auditor

    Yea ain't that a cowinkydink...NOT...smh

  • Auditor

    Man listen...I was telling my momma and nem that if I don't see the ish with my good eye and good ear....it didn't happen or it don't exist. Idgaf...

  • Latisaj

    I'm like why bring them here with the last statement saying some one slipped through the cracks!

  • BatShatt

    i live and work here. The opinion that the situation is illogical doesn't negate the possibility that it will happen. WTBS, I agree--we can't house the people that are already here, i cant imagine adding to the already overwhelming problem of finding affordable housing.

  • AnonymousRose

    America is so full of lies, hell it was built on lies..smdh

  • SoChlo

    They MAY go to Kenner or the Westbank but not in New Orleans. My larger point is we shouldn't let fear stand on the way of our humanity. You should know this firsthand. After Katrina people didn't want us in their states because of a few bad apples but we relied on the humanity of others to see us through. The situation is the same.

  • 1/8

    America needs to stop babysitting other countries' issues. We can't afford anymore charity; especially, people with possible ties to terrorism.

  • 1/8

    How are you going to know the difference?

  • 1/8

    Black Africans are starving... being tortured, maimed, raped, and murdered by Muslim extremists, but when was the last time America opened her arms to THEM?

  • Junkanoo

    Chile they want that oil ....they're using terrorism as an excuse to colonize the middle east..... you don't know who or what to trust

  • Junkanoo

    Major double standards ..... terrorist attacks only seem to matter when they happen in a short list of countries usually not Africa which continues to be demonized

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Obama has been moving muslims to American states since 2009. Google it.

  • 1/8

    This country has always turned a blind eye to the suffering of black Africans. Clinton didn't lift a finger while nearly one million Rwandans were slaughtered during a conflict that was started by Belgium. So, I guess it makes sense that the American government is checking for black victims of terrorism.

  • BrittBrat2005

    Texas also have refused..

  • BrittBrat2005

    Texas, Arkansas, Indiana, Louisiana, and Mississippi governors said Monday that the states would not allow Syrian refugees to enter.

  • eljjai

    here go hell come. I think I just need to go find a desert somewhere and live out there. Or deep in the Amazon. This mess is getting out of hand, got me scared to travel.

  • sunni_daze

    I think that the US should consider closing the boarders as well, I saw that the POTUS is willing to let in 10K refugees and that 25 US states said "they ain't coming here" and honestly I don't blame them, this is about safety first.
