Play it again, Sam

Watching France respond to the Paris atrocities has the feel of Claude Rains in Casablanca, rounding up the usual suspects. If the Charlie Hebdo shooting was anything to go by, within a week we will be happily blaming ourselves instead of those that pulled the trigger. The general complacency about military action in Syria is understandable, not least when the lads we send into battle to do our dirty work are subsequently arrested and jailed for infringing the rules.
