    The hostage taking in Sydney is now over with 2 dead plus the hostage taker. My condolences to the victims and their families. My thoughts are with you, my Aussie friends. Stay strong.

    Thanks for the thought guys, it's a sad house and country this morning. It would seem the hostage taker was a self styled Iranian cleric who was granted political asylum here and was also an accessory to the murder of his wife as well as being on bail for a string of offences. In other words a violent angry man.

    My thought and condolences also to the families and friends of the victims.

    Damn. My thoughts with the families of the victims. I also extend my support for the Australian police who stopped the gunman before the carnage became worse. It's sad two innocents lost their lives, but many more survived.

    It's a terrible tragedy, and my thoughts are with my Aussie friends. It's too bad they didn't just unleash one of the top notch Aussie snipers. I know they have some good ones. One shot to turn that idiot's head into a canoe and it's all over. But I understand that there is a tactical need to minimize any civilian casualties.

    Very sad. Another sad affair is the killing of school children in Pakistan. Let no one doubt that there are many dangerous people around whose humanity is doubtful.
