    Aljazeera tv news advises the gendarme who exchanged himself for a female hostage during the Trebes supermarket terrorist attack, & was subsequently shot, has died.

      Just reading more on that and the Gendarme, who died is a national hero.
      The stupid farked up kid who did all the killing … shot dead …
      will we ever find out how much time he spent in the dark net?
      plotting away … A sick young drug addled mind?
      determined to kill as many innocent people as he can ….
      bringing shame upon him and family … forever.

    Another day…another Infidel…another grieving family and more government inaction. However, the light of our mighty Western civilisation isn’t completely extinguished…yet.

      Fisk appears to have been drunk at the keyboard when he wrote that & who knows what Trump would have done about Afghanistan & Iraq and all the other major US misadventures that have fucked the ME up & which Bolton thought were all brilliant moves..

    Speculation is the name of the blogging game Noel.

    “He was just a regular kid, from a simple and regular family. He wore a beard and didn’t have a job,” a neighbour told AFP, asking to remain anonymous.”

    If that is what regular kids from regular families do then Humanity is in trouble.

    China’s ambitions vs Trump realism. Obama’s weakness has caused another big problem:

      I don’t think Obama’s weakness had caused a problem I think China’s growing economy & overdue advances across the board have emboldened them. They don’t want the US running their patch any more.

        Their patch to include a bunch of pieces of neighbouring countries?

          Well Taiwan they’ve got an argument for maybe. The rest of it let’s wait and see.
          Has the US ever annexed or colonised any territory – do you know?

      If they are so easy to buy why haven’t the Democrats bought them? Cheap shot.

        Trump started the cheap shots and still fires the most.
