In like of the horrific attacks that took place in Paris yesterday, I've been worried about my forum friends that live in France. Are you guys all ok?

Such terrible cowardly attacks on random innocent people. Our thoughts and prayers are with those families who lost someone, and with the 99 critically injured currently.

This was another terrible attack on the free world, and on our friends in France.
My thoughts are with our next neighbours. We are one Europe, and when they hit you,
then they also hit us. We are with you, France!

Thank you , most of the poor souls lost were young people relaxing and enjoying the night life in Paris.

My heart goes out to all our Paris/French mates and all people of your country. We don't need any more versions of 9/11 anywhere! Stay strong one and all.

My prayers and well wishes to all our friends in Paris, and throughout France that are dealing with this horrible tragedy.

Unfortunately, the world is stuck living with this cancer, as we know in the US, New York more specifically.
That is of course until something is done about it. I understand tolerance and acceptance as I work for an international airline, and have many friends all over the world... but there is a line that needs to be drawn clearly.

France just bombed the ISIS HQ in Syria... Viva La France!!!

Thank you all, for your words, your support, and sympathy during these terrible hours we have faced in France, and particulary in Paris last friday . We are all have a special think for the victims and their families who have been the victims of darkness and the worst that humanity can produce. It's not the first time, in his long history, that France cross strong difficulties, and everybody in France know that unfortunately, it will happen again. We are actually in war (our president have declared "l'tat d'urgence" for the 2nd time in national level during our history). We all know that it will be a long war with lot of innocent victims, but we all know, like during the past France will succeed with help of free world and our numerous allies. Paris latin motto's is "fluctuat nec mergitur", we have lost a battle but we haven't lost the war ... Pray for the victims ...

I hope now, that Barrack and Vlad are big Pals again, we'll get rid of this Problem, soon...
This may sound Hair-splicing, but I don't think, that the Term "War" is correct, here.
War can only be declared against a State, and this so called IS isn't one and will never be.

I'm afraid this crap will never stop until some decisive measures are taken in the Mid East.

What those measures could be, I'll leave to everybody's imagination.

Problem is that in the mind of the terrorists and IS, they are in war against whoever don't lives under their rules ... Perhaps that the term of "war" is inappropriate, but it's a fight between 2 perceptions of what humanity should be ... Unfortunately for them the model they propose will not replace easily, what our ancestors have been fighting for during French revolution of 1789 ... They haven't gives their lives to end with despotism for nothing ... If you come in France at moment you can feel that most of people is proud to be French even if we are afraid about what happened ...

I also wish to send my most heartfelt prayers and sympathies to the people of France. I have always held France in great respect, not only because she has been our ally for over 200 years, but also for all her people have provided the world. The cowardly attacks by this most recent gang of radicals, proclaiming to be fighting for what god wants, are nothing more than sadistic thugs attempting to impose their own twisted will upon this old rock. They no more represent the Muslim people than a putrefied piece of popcorn covered in rancid butter represents an Iowa corn field. IS and other such lunatic assemblies need to be swept from the face of the earth as expediently as possible and with as much force as a united world can gather.

Stay strong you "braves hros de la France", and know that the world stands with you. Vive la France, vive la libert!

+1 for all of you,

As a present, here is a dedicated poem of Paul Eluard written during dark times in the past and in memory of all of innocent victims all over the world :


Libert


Sur mes cahiers dcolier
Sur mon pupitre et les arbres
Sur le sable sur la neige
Jcris ton nom

Sur toutes les pages lues
Sur toutes les pages blanches
Pierre sang papier ou cendre
Jcris ton nom

Sur les images dores
Sur les armes des guerriers
Sur la couronne des rois
Jcris ton nom

Sur la jungle et le dsert
Sur les nids sur les gents
Sur lcho de mon enfance
Jcris ton nom

Sur les merveilles des nuits
Sur le pain blanc des journes
Sur les saisons fiances
Jcris ton nom

Sur tous mes chiffons dazur
Sur ltang soleil moisi
Sur le lac lune vivante
Jcris ton nom

Sur les champs sur lhorizon
Sur les ailes des oiseaux
Et sur le moulin des ombres
Jcris ton nom

Sur chaque bouffe daurore
Sur la mer sur les bateaux
Sur la montagne dmente
Jcris ton nom

Sur la mousse des nuages
Sur les sueurs de lorage
Sur la pluie paisse et fade
Jcris ton nom

Sur les formes scintillantes
Sur les cloches des couleurs
Sur la vrit physique
Jcris ton nom

Sur les sentiers veills
Sur les routes dployes
Sur les places qui dbordent
Jcris ton nom

Sur la lampe qui sallume
Sur la lampe qui steint
Sur mes maisons runies
Jcris ton nom

Sur le fruit coup en deux
Du miroir et de ma chambre
Sur mon lit coquille vide
Jcris ton nom

Sur mon chien gourmand et tendre
Sur ses oreilles dresses
Sur sa patte maladroite
Jcris ton nom

Sur le tremplin de ma porte
Sur les objets familiers
Sur le flot du feu bni
Jcris ton nom

Sur toute chair accorde
Sur le front de mes amis
Sur chaque main qui se tend
Jcris ton nom

Sur la vitre des surprises
Sur les lvres attentives
Bien au-dessus du silence
Jcris ton nom

Sur mes refuges dtruits
Sur mes phares crouls
Sur les murs de mon ennui
Jcris ton nom

Sur labsence sans dsir
Sur la solitude nue
Sur les marches de la mort
Jcris ton nom

Sur la sant revenue
Sur le risque disparu
Sur lespoir sans souvenir
Jcris ton nom

Et par le pouvoir dun mot
Je recommence ma vie
Je suis n pour te connatre
Pour te nommer

Libert.

Paul Eluard

Grmpf... I knew it... selecting Latin in School as 2nd. foreign Language hasn't been the brightest Idea...

Joke aside.
We are with you. Be it as moral Support... or in the next AWACS selecting Targets ;-)
