Bloodshed in Paris this evening

Jesus.

This is going to get a lot worse before it gets better.

The Eagles of Death Metal were playing the Bataclan that night.
people are, via cellphone, begging the police to storm the theater, as the terrorists are killing people one by one.

So it's not really a "hostage" situation...it's just plain cold-blooded murder by terrorist scumbags.

This will really do a lot of good at furthering that whole exit strategy thing that extracts the West from participation in pointless wars that create 10x as many terrorists as end up being killed.


Also: heaps more tension about the refugee situation Europe is facing is exactly what the doctor ordered right about now.
