Interesting read. It's a toss up to me which future is more upsetting: a nuclear holocaust or Europe being taken over by Sharia Law.

I thought that was pretty much spot-on. Although, I'd also add a few items to the list... the usual makeshift shrines of cards, flowers & teddy bears... candlelight vigils, photo ops & vacuous speeches by elected officials, the usual phrases like "dropped the ball", "failure to connect the dots", "we must learn from our mistakes to insure that this doesn't happen again", etc.

Until the next terrorist atrocity starts it all over again and the process repeats ad nauseam.

Trying to compare Islamic terrorism to school shootings and whatnot is pointless. They're two entirely different circumstances, with entirely different causes.

I'm comparing the reaction to the events. Did you read the article he posted?

Every odd once-in-a-while you're capable of making a lot of sense, Batty.
