  1. I just heard the officials have the death toll at 140.

      It’s confusing, I would be thinking we’ll be getting a better stats on the death toll and the injured tomorrow. I am beside myself with all the trouble the terrorist are creating.

      I don’t know anything about the band, never heard of them. Being Friday night, everybody was out enjoying the city life.

    Cancellation of the demonstrations and closing of all the town halls of districts, only E.Civil permanences and Mariage will be open

    I’m afraid that this is going to lead to Western countries telling citizens that they can go visit ailing relatives in Yemen or Lebanon but, then they can’t come back.
    Maybe, for a while, that’ll be what it takes to shut this shit down.
    Where’s Saudi Arabia in all of this?

    I’m watching Rachel on MSNBC. This is so horrible.

    One little nugget I heard from one of the experts being consulted by the television media yesterday was addressing how the terrorists could pull off such a massive coordinated attack on a major city. He said, (paraphrasing) “They’ve gotten smarter. They are harder to catch now because they communicate only through the dark internet and never, ever use phones. They’ve all read Snowden so now they never use phones.”

    That’s what he said. “They’ve all read Snowden…” THAT’s the damage that fucking traitor did not only to this country but to all people.

    Also, FYI, the NYT posted that they are providing free digital access to stories about the attacks. They have a ton of them.
