19. The attack in Paris was an act of war.

It really doesn't matter at this point who started it although I would say that George W. Bush and we in the US started the Iraq War, no doubt. But remember Iraq and Iran fought before Bush went in there, as did Iraq and, was it Kuwait? or maybe really Saudi Arabia that was stolen from and attacked? Do we really know?

But the attack in Paris was an attack strictly on vulnerable, helpless civilians -- a brutal act of war no matter what the excuse. There was no military target in that stadium or the restaurant. Those were strictly civilian targets. That is an act of ruthless, heartless aggression only intended to incite more war.

How to react is for our best military strategists to consider. More war may or may not be the answer. But the attacks in Paris were brutal acts of war and should be viewed as such.

There was no military purpose. They were not seeking out potentially armed victims. They were seeking civilian victims. That is a heinous crime. And certainly no religion condones that kind of act.
