It’s just so unbelievable that a massacre happened in Paris a few days ago. It’s really depressing to see on TV of what’s going on there. It’s so hard to be writing and not shed tears for the innocent people there. When I saw the bodies of too many people lying on the outside of that cafe I felt numb. Can you imagine those people were just eating and enjoying their meals and suddenly they’re lying on the floor dead? Can you imagine the horror of those people that saw those people being killed right in-front of them? Never in my wildest dreams that so many people nowadays were so cruel and heartless.

Just watching the video of the people screaming for their life. It made me sick to my stomach. I think they don’t know yet how many deaths there were. It’s not just French people were being massacred, so many tourist there too from other countries. It’s just sad that as if some people just don’t value life anymore. They think it’s just easy to kill or behead people. It’s so sickening. I don’t want to be political here, I’m just sad for the innocent people. You know what I mean?

Many nations mourn together for the people of France. We can just hope that the perpetrators will be captured and be punished to the extent of the law. I’m sure the families of those who were killed want justice for their loved one. I’ve heard this one person being interviewed on live TV after the incidents he was a Frenchman. He went to the concert with his mom and he was so shook up and was crying on TV. Can’t blamed the guy. He said he was covering his mom while shots fired all over the place. I felt sorry for them. They will be scarred for life, I’m sure.

I’ve seen one of the news guys in the States, who has a daughter that studying in France. His daughter was in the stadium watching the soccer game. I felt for the news guy. He almost broke down on TV hearing his daughter. Really he wanted to, we could tell that he tried holding his emotions. The next day, his other daughter and him were guests on the morning show and the other daughter broke down on TV was scared for her big sister. I think he is flying to France to get his daughter there.

Is this going to stop? I felt those heartless guys just kills innocent people almost every week it seems. I hope that all nations will be united to fight against these cruel killers. Nowadays theirs no place  that seems to be peaceful anymore. Geez, I wish we could go back to the old days that even if you don’t locked your doors it still safe. Also the old days people (youngsters and older) are so respectful and kind. I guess it’s already leaving the past behind and face the cruelty of the future. 🙂

To all the people of France and those families that were affected by this heinous crime. Our condolences and prayers for all of you. Hope that justice will be served for your loss.

STAY SAFE!

The French police will not worry about the political correct people and other hand wringers, they will be ruthless and hunt them all down. Just today they raided an apartment and over 5,000 rounds of ammo were used. Go for it France.

We need to pray for the country of France and for all those killed or wounded in this attack. This is basically and attack on all the countries of the world who believe in freedom, especially freedom from the religion that does these attacks in the name of their god. I hope there is justice in the next life for the people who committed this crime.

It amazes me the misinformation! The United States is flying close to 80% of ALL bombing missions against ISIS. That leaves the rest of the bombing missions to go to the guys you think are doing such a great job! The United States, and the Obama administration, have killed far more of the terrorist than any Republican leader EVER did. And as a note to that…Lil Georgie Bush, and his lies about Iraq that led to a totally ridiculous war, led to the establishment of ISIS. Even Tony Blair, former leader of Britain, acknowledged that. It is amazing the the… Read more »

Todd,

Are you sure about the statements you posted?

Isn’t it true that terrorists might take several people, sometimes not even one person, a year in the Philippines. Check it out.

It’s to bad your president has allowed an irritating boil (ISIS) to fester and become a full blown disease.

By the way did Obama kill the terrorists or the U.S.A’s military?

Strange that after 7 years you, and your president, are still blaming others for mistakes. Winners solve problems and losers blame others, right?

Hi Rusty,

I think one could argue that President Obama has solved a lot of problems. He ended two long wars. He ordered the killing of Osama bin Laden. He came in a time of deep recession and there has been a slow recovery, but improvement in the economy.

Jay,

I don’t know of any president that doesn’t accomplish something. I just wonder if those calling the shots are concerned about all the people.

Somebody should have know once you take the lid off, and Saddam had the lid on, chaos would start. Now that the lids off what can one do?

It was a mistake taking the lid off and it is a mistake to end a conflict. Why? Because it’s not an ordinary war. No countries but ideologies, right?

The PM of Australia said it’s baddies fighting baddies.

H Rusty, You make some excellent points! Killing Saddam was a contributed to the problem, because he provided stability. He would not have let ISIS exist in his country, because it would have been a threat to his power. You are also correct that it does no good to keep talking about the mistake at least it does not help solve the current problem. I don’t know the solution. I think President Obama would argue that he is fighting a more targeted war. I understand that may make him look weak and he has certainly made mistakes and I don’t… Read more »

Jay, Europe certainly is a mess especially with so many terrorists groups living there. No wonder they can’t control things. There really no excuse for what happened. They certainly have the informational satellites to control that region. All I know, and I’ve said it before, is a surgeon must know about operating. A mechanic should know about cars. So, there’s no excuse for not knowing what would happen by those in charge when Saddam was taken out. When I lived in Bolivia there was a dictator. Everything ran smoothly. Once he was forced to leave there was social, and economic,… Read more »

I thought they got like 70 virgins… but I don’t follow that stuff closely. Did you hear what Putin said about them? Something like “it is up to God to forgive them if he wants, but it is up to me to send them to God”. ha ha

Yes…. It does stand to reason the more population of Muslims in any area will raise the number of Mohammeds

France did not give in to terrorism…they agreed to take 30,000 more refugees…

Hello Feyma, One important factor which was left out of your blog was the fact that the cruel and heartless people were Muslim terrorists. ISIS took responsibility for the heinous crimes of cold blooded murder. The French government, even though lead by a socialist president had enough courage to declare what occurred an ” act of war” and strike back without mercy. They along with the Russians will hunt down the modern day ” Nazis in headscarfs” any where on the planet and kill them where they are found hiding and planning more henoius crimes against the innocent. God bless.… Read more »

The French should take the lead on the Paris attack. The U.S. needs to be involved but not to the same degree. Obviously they need to be hit hard.

It’s too bad they let a small boil fester. Now it’s a disease that must be eliminated.

It’s hearbreaking… one of my old co-worker was 2 blocks away from the concert with her husband. They retired a couple of years ago and went back home to Lyon, France. They were in Paris for the weekend when she told me they started hearing guns and her & her husband ran into a bakery & hid with other people. Her son’s friend was at the concert and was one of the many who were killed. She emailed a few of us and told us that her other son & family left Paris and drove to Lyon to their home… Read more »
