This attack is so pointless. What does it achieve? Only violence and even more hatred. :(

That's the point. That's why they're called "terrorists." Violence for the aim.

It's despicable. I'm watching the news now and I see injured people being taken into ambulances, and I wonder if these terrorists find it funny? Does this appeal to them? It's sadistic and insults the human race as a whole.

Ps. Good job on this topic/thread.

What happened in Paris is a terrible thing, but let's keep in mind that this is what the people of the Muslim world endure every single day under never-ending imperialist war. This is what it's like under US/British/Canadian/Israeli/etc occupation and bombing in Libya, Palestine, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, Yemen and Pakistan all the time. This is the imperialist West's chickens coming home to roost. You export violence all over the world, you get violence back in return. It's just unfortunate that it has to be ordinary working-class people to suffer the consequences of their imperialist rulers' crimes. It's also unfortunate that, for many people, it's only worth paying attention to when the war comes home, it only matters when people in the imperialist countries get attacked. Millions of Muslims have been killed by imperialism, multiple nations have been completely destroyed by imperialism, and Westerners don't care, but one attack happens in an imperialist metropole and only then is it called a tragedy. Everywhere else, it's called "collateral damage". I know it seems insensitive, especially given how recent and shocking this attack is, but I just thought it was important to say this.

Actually, I was just thinking about this, and that's why I said that we need a technostist order. If we spread food and resources, rather than droppin' bombs, we'd prolly have a MUCH better world right now.

 

It's like Michael Franti said— you can bomb to pieces, but you can't bomb it into peace.

I dread to think of the sheer magnitude of Islamophobia that will erupt (yet again). There will be many Muslim victims of this attack all across the world over the next few days and weeks. I'm lucky I even have that option of "not thinking" about it; for many people, this 'exit' option (another white privilege) doesn't exist and they have no escape from the brutality coming their way very soon.

May all of the victims of these Paris terrorist attacks Rest in Peace. :(

Also, I would like to point out that ISIS is going to literally get wiped off of the map if it continues to launch such terrorist attacks in the West.

Yeah, I would like to use an analogy of not painting the whole picture with one brush. For example, many around the world look to our country and say, "Why don't you kick out those right wing nutters out of power that are ruining your economy, the environment, and who are removing civil liberties?" From an outsider perspective, it would like appeasement, capitulation, or submission to those people, but the real dynamics behind the scene are more complex. For example, ISIS is not motivated by scripture, but rather by buying and selling women as sexual currency just like a televangelist is not motivated by scripture, but by his greed or Mitt Romney not by an indelible belief in free markets, but by his own ego.

P.S.

That was in response to joeuk, futurist was too quick to respond!

That's kind of confusing, I don't really see how it relates to my post.

The same people who are southern racists in the United States would be violent extremists if they had been born in a third world country.

Yes, of course I know this. After all, ISIS is the one who blew up that Russian plane, correct? Also, though, I am unsure that Russia actually has the nerve for a large-scale military occupation of Syria and the Sunni-majority parts of Iraq.

that was the entire point. This isn't just for the shits and giggles. People like this do things like this because it's the fastest and most brutal way possible to draw a line and force people to pick a side. Islamophobia resulting from this will make victimisers and victims of people who yesterday had no quarrel with each other. Then you will have the protective arms of your fellows to go to, after which it's a world with no moderates. Simple teams, pick one and fight those that do not support your team. Broad brushes are taken out to paint the us and them naratives.

 

Make no mistake these things are the result of people who believe that it is their sacred duty to usher in a new war/crusade to bring about the dominance of their own ideology.

Humans sure as hell don't know what is best for themselves.

 

They give in to the temptations of strong feelings too easily.

 

Yoda said something about this, much to his frustration -

 

"Yes, a Jedi's strength flows from the Force. But beware of the dark side. Anger, fear, aggression; the dark side of the Force are they. Easily they flow, quick to join you in a fight. If once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you as it did Obi-Wan's apprentice."

Here should be my condolences to the people of France... but no, i'm not going to write such post. Very recently, this same "people of France" did not see anything wrong in making fun on this:

 

Spoiler

 

...so, let's be honest, after such caricatures i feel nothing but malicious satisfaction. Are you liked jokes, France? It seems, the History itself also likes them:

 

Spoiler

 

And, let me guess, this is not the end. Given the current cource of events, these attacks will soon become routine (few times per year or more).
