That's the one I saw. Very graphic.

I agree, but slim chance at this point, with the details emerging.

Because the extreme religious believers.....

I know of major houses of worship whose Ecumenism, and commitment to
equality, social justice, environmentalism that dot't fall under the rubrik
you claim.

I too watched those people jumping on 9/11 and to this day it is burned in my memory and perhaps the only positive thing about that is I will never forget that anger I felt. With that said, I have 0 desire to see a new massacre video and it would be just painful to see. I am however okay that these exist because it will always remind us of what most of us are up against and what is really out there.

It's just sad.....

Sounds like they want to oust the pro-Islamist government and restore Democracy and human rights according to the military statement. Not a bad thing IMO

Yes, because you have to just trust the military (especially in a country with a history of military coups) when they make statements like this.

Which was unknown at the time of initial reports of events in Turkey. Given the frequent terrorist attacks in Turkey in the recent past, I assumed this was another.

Why would any one want to go on vacation to France,

and this list is only the last year and one half,

and there should be 100 more dead people that were on that train, with the Islamic terrorist that had an assault rifle, petrol and 300 rounds, except 3 young Americans risked their lives to save everyone else, American exceptionalism?? **

Quote:
Here is a timeline of the attacks on France going back to January 2015, when terrorists killed 11 journalists in the newsroom of the Charlie Hebdo satirical newspaper:

Police officers, firefighters and rescue workers are seen at the site of an attack on July 15, 2016, after a truck drove into a crowd watching a fireworks display in the French Riviera town of Nice.

July 14, 2016

A driver killed 84 people and injured more than 100 others when he steered his speeding truck into a crowd in Nice at a celebration of Bastille Day, France's independence holiday. Many children were among the dead.

June 13, 2016

A knife-wielding man killed a senior police chief and his companion, also a police officer, in Magnanville, about 55 kilometers west of Paris. Police rescued the couple’s 3-year-old boy and killed the assailant pledging allegiance to Islamic State.

January 7, 2016

A militant wearing a fake explosive belt attacked police officers in the Goutte d'Or district in Paris, shouting "Allahu Akbar," or "God is great" in Arabic. He was shot dead and one policeman was injured. The Islamic State flag and a clearly written claim in Arabic were found on the attacker.

January 1, 2016
A man rammed his car into four soldiers guarding a mosque in the southeast French city of Valence, and he was stopped when a soldier fired and wounded him. He said he wanted to kill troops, and terror propaganda images were found on his computer. One soldier was slightly injured and a passer-by was also injured by a stray bullet.

November 13-14, 2015

In the deadliest attack in France’s modern history, nine gunmen and suicide bombers launched multiple deadly attacks across the French capital, killing almost 130 people and wounding more than 350.

Gunmen stormed the Bataclan concert hall in central Paris, where the U.S. rock band Eagles of Death Metal was performing, and fired AK-47s into the crowd, leaving 89 dead.

Thirty-nine people were also killed when a gunman opened fire on diners sitting at outdoor terraces in the popular eating districts of central Paris.

One was killed in three explosions near the Stade de France football ground, where France was playing Germany in an international match.

Seven of the perpetrators died on the night of the attacks, and two were killed in the days that followed.

August 21, 2015

A gunman opened fire on board a Thalys high-speed train traveling from Amsterdam to Paris, wounding three people before being overpowered by passengers, including two American servicemen.

June 26, 2015

Attackers crashed a car into a U.S.-owned gas company in Saint-Quentin-Fallavier, southeast of Lyon, then beheaded a businessman, leaving his decapitated body daubed with Arabic writing at the entrance of the premises. A flag with Islamist inscriptions was also found nearby.

April 19, 2015

An Algerian jihadist attempted an unsuccessful attack against one or more churches in Villejuif. He killed a woman, probably while trying to steal her car, but he accidentally shot himself in the leg, ending his plans.

February 3, 2015

A knife-wielding assailant attacked soldiers outside a Jewish community center in the southern French city of Nice. Two of the servicemen were injured, but their lives were not in danger.



**
He told a news conference in Paris that El-Khazzani had watched an online recording inciting radical violence minutes before the thwarted attack on the train travelling from Amsterdam to Paris.
He said the gunman boarded the train in Brussels on Friday armed with:
a Kalashnikov assault rifle
270 rounds of ammunition
a Luger pistol
a bottle of petrol
a box-cutter
a hammer
Mr Khazzani denies planning to launch a terrorist attack, saying he had come across a stash of weapons in a Belgian park and decided to use it to rob passengers.

Well, I hope to be going to visit Paris in Sept via another country where I am staying with people for a few weeks .

It would have to get waaay worse for me to cancel the (side) trip to Paris if I can go.

I've lived in NYC all my life.
For me from the early 60's through the ?early 90's', I (and fellow NYC'rs) endured the usually below the surface angst except when World Affairs would heat up into the "we're no #1 " target for the then Soviet Union's nuclear bombs before we knew about Nuclear Winter (which gave even more credence later to the original "MAD" Mutually Assured Destruction acronym for trying not going to nuclear war).

And particularly the year or so after 9-11 as well.

So yeah, I know about living with that kind of uncertainty. I m going to Paris! (I hope).

My wife and I just returned at the end of June from a 3 week vacation traveling around France. We spent a week in Paris and did many of the big touristy sights. We also flew in and out of Brussels, and really enjoyed our couple days there as well. It was an incredible trip, and we're already thinking about a return trip a few years down the road.

If only you'd posted this before we left, we might have saved ourselves from a trip into the big scary war zone.

and if you were there this week you very well may have been at Nice for the Bastille Day fireworks or taken in the Eagles of Death Metal Show or been on that train. Just luck for you and your wife, many vacationers were not so lucky.
