Russia's entry into the Syrian conflict.

Ostensibly they claim to be attacking ISIS but in fact they're supporting Assad by also attacking Syrian rebels. Add this to the hostilities in the Caucasus -- including the deliberate shooting down of MH17 --  and they look very threatening indeed.

The attacks in Paris will probably go down as this year's "9/11" even though it happened in France. Terrorist attacks of that size don't happen very often and the world's going to remember that one for a long time.

Islamic terrorist attacks on that scale in fact happen about once a month, only not in Europe or the Americas, so that's why we hear very little about them. Our PC MSM would not want to appear Islamophobic.

That may not be apparent for some time.  Things that transpire later because an incident that happened this year may make that incident what 2015 is remembered for, even if the full import of it is not so obvious today.
