Scores were killed in the coordinated attacks late Friday, leaving a nation in mourning and the world in shock. CNN will update this story as information comes in:How could any thinking, informed person consider this attack 'shocking' in any manner? If anyone is shocked then the politicians are to blame for bamboozling them into a false sense of security by pretending these Islamic terrorists are 'on the run' or 'contained' or 'JV' or just some 'deadenders'.
This is a very sad night for western civilization. And make no mistake, that's what this was--an attack on western civilization. Paris is symbolic and the targets were symbolic. Let's hope the response is appropriate.
