After yesterdays terrorists attacks the voices of gun control have already started! The sad part is that these folks fail to see reality in my view. Anyone can purchase a gun, unregistered – no background checks if you go the the right (wrong) places. Criminals and now Terrorists I am sure know this. For the right money anyone can buy just about anything should they put their mind to it and really want to achieve their goal. It just isn’t that tough to buy a gun illegally.
It appears that the cure that the gun control folks want is to take guns away from everyone and then there are no more shootings – right? Given how easy it is to purchase guns illegally and the liklihood of that ever, ever going away is slim to zero. The police, feds etc cannot get all of these guns and gun dealers off the streets. They will have about as much success in this as they have had getting drugs off the streets….in my opinion.
Sounds great, get rid of guns and the violence/shootings will just go away. Remember it is almost impossible to own a gun in Europe and the terrorists over there managed to get some high powered automatic weapons and plenty of ammo.
Perhaps, if everyone owned a gun and carried one, maybe then we would see a slowdown in these crazy shootings. At least, hopefully fewer fatalities and injuries. These crazies might think 2 or 3 times before walking into a building with murder on mind.
The situation in the Middle East seems to be getting out of hand. If it doesn’t end up an all out conflict between NATO and Russia I will be happily surprised. The saber rattling continues with Russia setting up ‘defensive’ forces (missiles) in the Baltic Sea between Ukraine and Turkey. I fully expect someone to make a grave error that will lead to all out war and this one, with all the modern weaponry will be devastating.
The possibility that this will spread is also likely, how far is anyone’s best guess. Europe is already on ‘war time footing’ in response to the latest ISIS attack. In the news last night here in the U.S. was a warm up for what is to come–most unfortunately. Again, I want to be happily surprised should nothing happen and the entire situation deescalates!!! It is time to pay attention!!! Close attention to what is happening in the world. This is very serious folks!
I pray for peace in my lifetime. I hope my children live through an era of no wars–Any where!!
This news is something that I have been dreading since Russia joined the fray in Syria. When this many super powers get to shooting and bombing in a rather small space and there are lots of hidden political agendas at play, things can get out of hand very easily. Now witness the downing of a Russian plane by Turkey. A cycle of unintended consequences is now unfolding before our eyes. How Russia will ultimately deal with this ‘insult’ remains to be seen. Turkey is a NATO ally and this could bring all of NATO into a war, World War 3. Isn’t this exactly what ISIS has been saying was their intention?
I hope that cool heads and reasonable people will be able to deescalate the tension this event has caused. Unfortunately I don’t see that many cool heads or reasonable people in any of the governements involved in this shoot out. France and Belgium are obviously pretty aggressive these days, with cause. Turkey on the other hand is a very wild card. I don’t think they have ever given up hopes of reestablishing an empire after losing it to the British.
Wouldn’t it be nice if the powers that be disrupted the governments of Syria and Iraq and Turkey, being a ‘stable’ government, was left to put the pieces back together? That is just a thought…nothing more.
I am sure that there is a flurry of diplomatic activity right now across the globe. Remember that wars can begin for the strangest reasons, ibid; WW1. I only hope that we can avert an all out shoot’em up that could very easily spread across the globe. We are currently the ‘Crusaders’ in the Middle East and Islam spreads far beyond those borders.
I have a question: If ISIS is a radical islamic offshoot then they would be full of hate for Israelis yet why haven’t they attacked the Israeli pipeline that runs right through their ‘Caliphate’? See the map below of the pathway for this pipeline. Wouldn’t that make strategic sense, especially if your goal is to start Armeggedon, to attack and disrupt oil/energy to Israel? That would certainly make things a bit more compicated.

NASA seems to cut the feed after 3 apparent UFOs are seen leaving the Earth’s orbit.
The countries of Saudi Arabia, Iraq and other gulf states which have traditionally controlled oil output and pricing appear to be losing some of that power to ISIS advances in Iraq. Due to the sectarian conflict between Shiite and Sunni sects and how they are allocated within these countries, their ability to control what could become a much larger disaster is limited. To complicate matters there are the tribal issues within the region to consider. Read it here.
I certainly hope that this assessement is incorrect. 96% of American believe that there will be an increase in violence here in the U.S. The author notes among other causes the increasing numbers of gang members and the occurance of police officer deaths rising quite dramatically in 2014.
