Terror attacks in Paris

The entire French territory is in a state of emergency, for the first time since the Algerian War in the 60's.

It feels strange living in Paris at the moment - all public institutions have been closed, along with most businesses and some public areas; transportation and circulation were limited this morning, so I pretty much sat in my apartment for most of the day and waited as news outlets buzzed about the aftermath and investigation.

128 deaths, more than 300 injured, with around a hundred in a critical situation. This is the first time we've seen attacks aimed at non-ideological targets, which is hardly comforting in a period of national mourning.

Stay safe over there. I couldn't believe what I was seeing on TV. It is unreal.

Stay safe. If it is indeed the 9/11 of France, I wonder what the reaction would be. Holland is not Bush, but will he have the guts to increase intervention in Syria now? Call for a coalition against ISIL? ISIL is the new Al Qaeda, and it seems they are even more powerful, now that they actually control parts of Syria and Iraq. Does anyone have the guts to confront them?

This is terrible. Like the other folks said, stay safe Intersection, and I hope anyone else in France is safe too. My heart goes out to the people of Paris.

Until yesterday I believed my cousin was in Paris, my heart skipped a beat.
Luckily she is no longer living there.

Take care of yourself.

You're in Paris Intersection?? Good thing you weren't involved otherwise we might have had a period of mourning for you here. That's the last thing the Dungeon needs right now is for one of it's members to remembered in that way. Stay safe and sound.

Thanks for the kind words. All infrastructures should be running normally again by tomorrow.

Either way, I'd expect only a few of us will have been truly, lastingly affected by Friday's events. In a few weeks, the rest will just move on, until (and if) something happens again. It's always like that - after a few, short moments of almost mandatory national unity, our politicians will resume their daily banter: the far right will yell even louder about tightening borders, the relevant minority advocates will continue to trivially pick apart the meaning of words, and everyone in the middle will act concerned but conveniently reserved. The most politically fructuous period will be, without a doubt, these coming days - when support is offered, and hopefully, actions are taken. After that, it will be back to business as usual.

But, in a way, it's a good thing. We can't have a whole nation living in the past.
