Harboring the people running from terrorists isn't going to make terrorists not want to attack them.  Europe was the source of the Crusades, which is on the minds of these bastards.  They've talked about flying their flag over the Vatican.  It's also a secular society that is an affront to them.  And most importantly, they're involved in the fight against terror.  France has handled a few situations in former African colonies almost unilaterally.
Probably not a Goat, either.

and now millions of thoughts and prayers pour out of facebook and twitter and uselessly wash over France. Damn it people I know you mean well but you don't have to comment on literally everything that happens. "What a tragedy". No ****.

Sorry to be one of the people that comments on the people commenting but I'd rather vent it here where only 10 people see it than on facebook where I add my dumb voice to the flood of other dumb voices spouting platitudes and using mass murder for political point scoring.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

The worst ones are the ones showing a bunch of soldiers from whatever countries being all like "We'll avenge you".

Yeah! Go bomb those towel heads that did this! For every French person that died we'll kill ten brown people! Surely that will finally end the cycle of violence. -_-

Perpetuating that cycle of violence is exactly what ISIS wants. Once people star taking 'revenge' on Syrian refugees and the like, ISIS can simply use it as more 'evidence' of their clash of civilizations narrative.

I've personally just shared the latest news. I don't see why people feel the need to make a status expressing that they condemn the actions of ISIS - everyone condemns it.

At least now my housemate will finally take that gay pride flag filter off her profile.

I seriously hate those filters. The whole point of your icon is to make you more recognizable when I'm scrolling through my contact list. If half the list looks like the exact same thing it defeats the whole goddamn point.

It's almost as annoying as people who insist to chat via facebook. I add everyone I can onto Skype instead because I don't care about what you had for breakfast or that you got a high score on Candy Crush or whatever the kids are into these days.

I have not looked at fb but I'm sure it's just as basic as your guy's. I think it's people wanting to show support the only way they can think. Dumb as rocks but the hearts in the right place.
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Especially when you don't know a single French person to show your support to.
Probably not a Goat, either.

I do know some French people. I'm happy they're safe, which is enough I think.

Yeah, I guess I'm talking about Americans I know where the most multicultural thing they've done is taco night every monday and that trip to New York City back in high school.  I guess at least they want to do something, even if their show of support is completely meaningless.

I made my profile picture rainbow cause my friend kept bothering me to make it rainbow but I don't know her anymore so I don't think I'll be doing this filter.
