Yeah I am watching this story as I write

 

It seems to have been a surgical attack by professionals. Seems to linked to ISIS, according to the French security services they have prevented several attacks recently but this one slipped through. Also this was pointed out that the attackers didn't want to necessarily kill innocents, they targeted people working for the newspaper only

Most likely people returning from training in the Syria-region.

Two of the dead were apparently cops. The poor guys had little chance against assault rifles.

 

As far as i can tell at the moment; there are two gun-men with kalashnikovs on the run in atleast one car.

Obviously the only solution is for France to ban all weapons.

 

Come now Gfted1, this is no time to raise the ideological nonsense of the NRA

 

The USA and France face different threats from fundamentalism due to their geography and political views  and these threats need to addresses with that  difference in mind

If they had Predators overhead, those guys would never have made it.  Well, here's hoping they find the people responsible and make them hug a pig.

Wat? The inspiration of the threat is immaterial. If all weapons were removed from France this would never happen again. REMEMBER THE FALLEN ELEVEN TWELVE!

I expect any newspaper that truly believes in the freedom of the press to republish it. Also, if any one of you see anyone on the internet (twitter, imgur, instagram, facebook) that salute the killers, archive it and report it to the authorities.

People working at the newspaper were innocent. What a disgusting thing to say!

I agree, we can't live in a world where we can't print certain political  cartoons

Yes they were innocent but not to the attackers, they only targeted the newspaper. They didn't just plant bombs to kill anyone and everyone, like we see with other terrorist attacks like the  7 July 2005 London bombings

Oh so they were aiming for less collateral damage. Uh, I guess that's nice of them.

 

Video of them has them execute one of the cops before fleeing, too.

Commiserations to the deceaseds families and friends, it seems such a trite and small thing to say, but there are of course no words or justifications for such an atrocity. Hopefully the magazine will recover and arise to champion free speech against the evil fanatics whom wish to silence it through the use of force of arms.

Quite an experience to live in misery isn't it? That's what it is to be married with children.

I've seen things you people can't even imagine. Pearly Kings glittering on the Elephant and Castle, Morris Men dancing 'til the last light of midsummer. I watched Druid fires burning in the ruins of Stonehenge, and Yorkshiremen gurning for prizes. All these things will be lost in time, like alopecia on a skinhead. Time for tiffin.

 

Tea for the teapot!
