We've all wondered about the emotional toll the shooting is taking on the children who witnessed and survived the massacre.
Jim: It's only partway to a solution, but the rising number and frequency of terrorist attacks in the West does draw inspiration from the existence of a physical so-called Caliphate in Iraq and Syria that is also creating new outposts in places like Libya as well. All of their land holdings must be reduced and then eliminated. Because they are fighting unconventionally, a new section of the Geneva Accords has to be created for depraved indifference to human life as demonstrated by their barbaric methods. Only a multi-prong approach can lessen this violence and reduce it to less unacceptable levels. A major initiative, dogged and unrelenting, must follow the money and see where it leads. Oil money backing terrorism from locales like Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states must lead to tribunals where the sheiks are thrown in the same docket as their operatives. Time for diddling around is over -- a military expert interviewed by the BBC says 100,000 "good enough" soldiers must be set upon the Islamist fanatics and immediately backed up by several times their number to get at the source of all this and somehow pacify the reoccupied regions -- try anything, keep what works.
