There are so many ways to go with this, I hardly know where to begin. An armed belligerent confronts the French nation....and French authorities retreat behind locked doors and wait for the Americans to handle it.
The Americans did handle it. The Den's French Bureau Chief reported to me just hours ago that train staff (of state run SNCF) locked themselves in safety and left the passengers to fend for themselves..
The French government had already been alerted by the Spaniards that this would-be mass murderer had fought alongside ISIS in Syria but apparently were concerned that keeping a watchful eye might 'offend' him.

Back to this US Airman Spencer Stone, he'll be getting all kinds of laurels from the French and our own government but I want to know more about his mother and how she raised him. I'll bet she taught him about Sticks & Stones....with a little wink at how close to home that little couplet hits. I've long lamented this ridiculous overreaction at rude comments and how easily people nowadays are "appalled" or find a few rude words "reprehensible" and forever seeking that next catchphrase to ostentatiously display how offended they are. The emotional energy invested to transform oneself into such a candy-ass to convincingly evoke such high-toned outrage is not without a cost. All that indignation expended over a few words weakens defenses so when actual danger is encountered that cowering crouch of retreat can't react in a way to save one's own hide or the truly vulnerable.
When Airman Stone, was taking cover in his defensive crouch, he wasn't cowering like a little pussy; he was relatively clear-headed and waiting for an opportunity to make his move. When the pistol jammed, he charged and opened up a can on that piece of shit terrorist.
They should still teach children about Sticks & Stones and adults that Weakness is Provocative.
