I'm going to try and keep this brief and blunt since I've only just heard about it and don't know all of the facts, but I feel it important to throw my hat in the ring.
First, keep the victims in your prayers. It grieves me that people that simply try to make jokes have been targeted and massacred. It also angers me like you wouldn't believe, but we'll get to that. These folks didn't deserve this.
Second, I hope that the militant Islamist scoundrels that did this get tracked down and get what's coming to them. If they don't get riddled on sight then I'd settle for a public execution, preferably by hanging. There truly is only one way to deal with things like these, and I refuse to call them men, because actual men don't do things like this. The solution whenever this happens is to track down those responsible and make sure that they can in no way ever do this kind of thing again. Prison for life won't cut it either. Y'know why? Cuz they can be broken out and wage war again once free. Nope, the only rational solution is to execute them post haste.
These freaks need to understand that if they do this anywhere, it's a one way ticket. Not likely given how some of these countries operate, but I can hope. French forces, I wish you the best of luck in your hunt.
Yes, I know darned well that not all Muslims are radicals, but it's extremists like these that are giving the group a bad name. If you happen to be Muslim then call these guys out for what they really are: Radicals that do not represent you and that you despise just as much as everyone else.
Us average people usually aren't in a position to directly clash with terrorists. They don't want that. They are cowards and shy away from fair fights. By definition they wish to spread fear. Every time you feel afraid to speak about something because you're worried they'll strike, that's them at work. So how does your average Joe truly fight them? Simple: Say whatever you want anyway.
These creeps hate that other people have such rights and the only way they know how to deal with that is to spread fear. If we don't give in and continue exercising them to their fullest, then the actions of the radicals are truly in vain. Don't let them control what you can and can't say. Don't let them dictate what can be done. If you do, then you give them power. I vote that we don't do that.
Heck, that's why I'm writing this article. I'm speaking out against these creeps directly. They're cowards and scum, and they know it.
People of France, I weep for you. I'm sure there will be plenty of more tears in the future, as evil creatures such as these can't be eradicated completely, but their actions can be mitigated.
I may right more on this when more facts come out and I'm secure in them, because there are a few more elements that I wish to address.
In conclusion, don't give into fear. Spread the love you feel for your fellow man in any way you can, regardless of where you are. It's far harder to be kind than to be aggressive in times like these, and I plan to spread love and cheer wherever I can. I hope that more of you will do the same.
