    For now I’m speechless and angry and want to smash things and hurt people.

    Always bear in mind that smashing things and hurting people who are not actually connected to this attack will be a lot worse than doing nothing.

    I’m looking forward to hearing all the neo-cons explain which country we should invade to defend the cheese-eating surrender monkeys

    Fundamentalists. This is what they do, regardless of whatever God they claim to believe in.

    If you want a war that I can get 100% on board with, start one against all religious fundamentalists regardless of race or national origin. They’ll destroy the world otherwise. Happily.

    Well, obviously this is all Obama’s fault (because sekrit muslim). For the country to invade I recommend Bhutan: it has nothing at all to do with the attacks and is impossible to get out of once you’re there. This should make it an ideal match for neocon ambitions.

    What is there to say?

    Killing people sucks. And yet, human beings seem very committed to continue killing each other in all sorts of interesting and various ways.

    I can’t get too excited or interested in an attack on French soil when I’ve also heard about so many other and more deadlier attacks during the last week in Nigeria Pakistan and Afghanistan.

    Is there a way to limit this current manifestation of violence by Islamic extremists?

    I am pretty much in the fuck them all mode.

    I am much more concerned that affordable housing for the inner city poor in my community is disappearing faster than the Greenland ice cap.

    Is this the terror attack thread? Yeah, an awful thing. Dozens killed. “The situation is catastrophic. We arrived to find bodies piled on top of each other.” Or are you talking about the attack on the Iranian ambassador about a month ago that killed or wounded up to 18 people? Hard to keep up with this stuff.

    Crooks & Liars had a piece where they quoted Fox folk as already blaming the attack on Mayor de Blasio. Whether that is true or not, I can not say. I don’t doubt Fox would do stupid stuff like that. That is Fox after all. The paradox? Here we have an event where some fundamentalist (on some level of some thing) assassinates a bunch of media people and with Fox using it to blame the NYC Mayor, my first impulse is to wish we put those Fox folk up against the wall to stop them.

    I hope I’m not as bad as the crazies who did this but obviously I’m not that far removed. Too sad on every level.

    @kindness: You know why? Because white supremacists are fucking OBSESSED with Muslims in Europe, and they look to Europe these days to validate their dipshit opinions about domestic affairs. “Commie” Europe is always on the brink of collapse, la-di-da, except of course it isn’t by any measure. Only a basket case like Roumania could hope to beat our shitty scores on development measures and they actually make pathetic attempts at taking care of their citizens with a much smaller economy and collective PTSD from the dictatorship.

    Hmm, quick google shows US doing better on infant mortality, one of my faves, than I thought. Slovakia is doing worse than US, Ukraine, and Russia. Romania much worse. Looks like we’re doing better than pretty much all of Eastern Europe and better than much of Central Europe (but not better than Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Slovenia, Italy, or Czech Republic, lol). We’re number one! We’re number one!

    No.

    Don’t discuss.

    This attack, while tragic. is a completely irrelevant distraction from the real and serious issues facing America and the world today — issues like a global warming, skyrocketing income inequality, the rise of inverted totalitarianism in the advanced first world countries, and the worldwide die-off of species now approaching a crisis point.
