    My condolences to the people of France. Was watching live feeds on Euronews about the terror attacks in Paris. Once more the "Religion of peace" has reared it's ugly head. As for the dead hostages in the theater, it would seem that the authorities held off too long giving the douche bags time to execute every one in sight. And yes I'm angry even though I'm not French.

    I agree, some of the places mentioned were where I used to go for lunch. Europe better wake up soon or it will be complete civil war. As I write 140 thought to be killed and more injured.

    I'm also very sad and very angry at this senseless and cowardly act. Condolences to families and friends of lost loved ones and to all of France and Frenchmen everywhere.

    I don't know what Dag Hammarskjöld was thinking about when he wrote:

    What makes loneliness an anguish
    Is not that I have no one to share my burden,
    But this:
    I have only my own burden to bear.


    Today though, Paris and France are not alone,
    we all share its burden and sorrow...

    My heart breaks for the French people. There is only one way to send a clear message to the "Caliphate". Rain non-stop destruction down on Raqqa reducing it to rubble and then reduce the rubble to dust along with every thing in it. That is the only thing that such beasts understand. Thus far the way terrorists have been dealt with is like trying to cure cancer with sugar water.

    Just found out that a Californian was among those murdered in the attacks: Nohemi Gonzalez was a 23 year old exchange student from Cal State Long Beach

    Words fail me when it comes to these barbarians. My thoughts are with the people of France and those of other countries who had family there during this atrocity.

    The attitude of the Islamic jihadists isn't any different than that of the Islamic Barbary Pirates Jefferson took on in his day. Superior force is the only thing they understand.
