Instead of attacking Emmanuel Macron on Twitter, Donald Trump should have shown some “common decency” on the anniversary of terror attacks in Paris, a spokesman for the French government said. Benjamin Griveaux blasted the US President for his tweets saying that while France was “commemorating the murder of 130 of our people...‘common decency’ would have been appropriate.” Trump used the three-year anniversary of France’s deadliest ever terror attacks to launch a Twitter tirade against French President Emmanuel Macron, saying that he “suffers from a very low approval rating in France.” Trump also mocked French losses in both world wars, tweeting that people were “starting to learn German in Paris” before the United States entered World War II.

A military parade was attacked in Iran's southwestern city of Ahvaz on Saturday, killing nearly 30 people.It is interesting that many countries still feel the need to organize military parades to commemorate national days. This is a very old practice, and the fact that it still continues in the 21st century tells us that little has changed since the 19th century with regard to relations between states.For countries like China and Russia, military parades are particularly important, as they offer an occasion to display how powerful and disciplined their armed forces are. France's Bastille Day parade is well-known, even though it is harder in their case to understand why and to whom the French still need to show their military power. These are not the only examples of course, as many other countries preserve this martial tradition. We have to admit that military parades do not only help to dissuade foreign powers, but they are a domestic political instrument as well. Thanks to military … [Read more...] about Terror attack in Iran: Many more to come?
