At least 42 dead, France has closed its borders. Hadn't heard the death metal connection, but only heard of this a few minutes ago. Explosions at a bar near the Stade du France where the French national football team were playing Germany apparently.

They're attacking much more than that!

A soccer match and restaurant too, at the very least.

The President was at Stade de France watching the match.  This could have been an attack on him.

EODM were playing the Bataclan in Paris. Fuckers took hostages there after the bombs went off.  The show had not yet started.

2 suicide attacks at the stadium.  Chances are good someone was wearing a device.

"Up to 60" hostages have been taken, I'm hearing. Horrendous.

Even so this sort of thing is ineffectual in the end. It horrifies people, it makes people scared. It makes for lurid and tragic headlines. But a nation like France that soaked up hundreds of fatalities a day in some of the worst periods of WW2 will not be bowed by something like this.

I believe Hollande will get cooked because of this.

 

It'll be interesting to see how Europe as a whole responds to the massive influx of migrants, fleeing the wasteland the west has created.

 

This is the result of criminal/ignorant western policies.

Their modus operandi was a bit different, but back in my younger days we had the IRA committing terrorist atrocities in the UK at a much more frequent level than the latest happenings in France. I don't recall any of our Prime Ministers getting any shit for it.

 

Most Muslim immigrants in France are from their ex North African colonies.

 

And it is criminal how Yurp has slavishly followed ignorant US Foreign Policy. It's seventy five years since the Nazi bombing of Coventry. If the US had suffered anything like that in WW!! they might not be so gung-ho now.

This is really bad...haven't heard anyone claim responsibility yet, but I can only guess who is behind all this.

Yeah Hollande has been on the chopping block for a while though.  He almost got fucked because of Hebdo in January.  We shall see.

 

Has there been an IRA attack that came even close to this?  I doubt it.

I'm a member of EoDM's online community. They're a very tight-knit group, much like Rush fans.

 

I know a few peeps online from Paris. Most folks have checked in, but there are still a few from the community who haven't. 

 

My positive thoughts go out to all those in Paris dealing with this horrible event.

Never heard of EoDM until tonight, so I googled and watched some vids.  Was not what I expected.  

 

Basically, it's the Pet Shop Boys of today.   haha

 

But the news just keeps getting worse.  This thread could easily be in Available Light.  It's all about religion...

I respectfully disagree.  It's politics, and there are political goals that these groups are trying to achieve.  Religion is just the fulcrum to get idiots to do the dirty work.
