Y'know, I was half tempted the other day to submit a railroad themed photo featuring allah to RP. Greta Van Susteren of Fox News suggested that all news agencies all on the same day publish such a photo or a piece of satire all simultaneously - that way no single target was at more risk than any other.

Glad they got those terrorists but it was not a fair trade of lives.

Default A walk on Paris streets

Monster demonstration in Eastern Paris streets: 2 or 3 million people (the organizers and the Police were unable to count and report the size of the crowd because it was too big and walking on too many streets).

That's pretty amazing - I hear there was an array of world leaders who attended. Not Obama nor Biden, of course... we'll try to send someone in 2 years, Jean-Marc. I apologize on behalf of my country's leadership.

World leaders joined French President Francois Hollande, including British Prime Minister David Cameron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy. The day also brought together an unlikely duo at the rally: Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Still - it's going to take a lot more then signs, words and marches to win this "not"war on terrorism.

Mitch is right. It is embarrassing that the US did not send someone to join that group. Secretary Kerry seems to live on a government jet. Why is he not there to represent us?

In a couple of years, we'll try and elect some leadership that won't take their eyes off the ball.

It is pretty sad when our 'fearless' leader would rather watch a football game and spend time with the NBA champions then show the terrorists that we're done with their games....2016 can't come soon enough.
