Gearoid O Colmain
Discusses the Paris Attacks
with Russia Today
RT announcer: Well, let’s now talk to political journalist and author Gearoid O Colmain, who joins us from Paris this evening. Thanks very much for joining us again on RT International. You’re in the French capital. What’s the mood and atmosphere in the city right now?
Gearoid O Colmain: We’re being told that there’s a state of war and a state of emergency. We’ve had this before. We’ve had this in January and for several weeks we had nonstop sirens and nonstop chatter on the radio about the threat from radical Islam and terrorist groups and so on.
So we are having a kind of replay of that, but there has been, I think accentuated and we are going to have an intensification of the media campaign. Which is essentially a propaganda campaign to make people in France fear Muslims.
We need to be clear about the origins of the war on terror.
The war on terror is, and I quote, “Orchestrated from abroad”. These are the words François Hollande used to describe this terrorist attack.
Well, the attacks that have been continuing to destroy Syria, to massacre its population have also been orchestrated from abroad. They were orchestrated by NATO and they have been carrying out these attacks out against the civilian populations of Syria, for four years now.
And this is a terrorist campaign that is also orchestrated from abroad. And people in Europe need to understand that there is a war that is becoming global, that is being waged against civilian populations in particular. It is a form of neoimperialism, neocolonialism which aims to divide and conquer European and Middle Eastern and African and the world’s population for that matter.
