The President of France has officially said that the country "is at war" following Friday's deadly terrorist attacks in Paris.

During an historic meeting with both houses of parliament on Monday morning, President François Hollande issued a statement saying that France would respond to ISIS killing 129 people by "not just containing, but destroying" the terrorist cell.

It's unclear if this was a legitimate declaration of war or more of a manner of speaking, but he clearly got his point across.

The news comes just a day after Prime Minister Manuel Valls also said that the country was "at war with terrorism" following the French Police decision to raid 168 homes over the weekend.

President François Hollande stated that he will be meeting with President Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin later this week.

John Galliano Stripped Of France's Legion Of Honor


Lance Armstrong isn't the only one being stripped of his titles!

John Galliano no longer has the right to wear France's Legion d'Honneur

The ex-Christian Dior designer received France's highest award in 2010, only to have it taken away this week by President Francois Hollande, who signed a decree in the country's official journal.

The move obviously stems from Galliano's guilty verdict for spewing anti-Semitic slurs, but why did it take them so long!?

Oh well, one less thing to pack up and take to El Lay.
