*Sigh* It is a day of outmost darkness in France today.
Three men armed with kalashnikovs and a rocket launcher attacked the headquarters of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, this not long after they had a satirical drawing of the IS leader.
The men reportedly shouted "Allahu akhbar" inbetween gunfire as well as "We have avenged the prophet" according to the police.
Atleast 12 people are dead and more are wounded, several in critical condition, one of the victims was a police officer who was wounded and then killed by one of the crazy gunmen while begging for mercy and his life with a shot in the head.
President Francois Hollande has labelled it a terrorist attack and the government has raised the alert level to the highest possible in the greater Paris region.
Currently the police are on the hunt for the gunmen, but many fear that this was the work of IS whose leader have urged its members that are hiding in EU to attack the country if they side with the US on continuing the bombing campaign on them.
And if it indeed was IS who had this planned, then they've just dug themselves one hell of a grave as France is after all a permanent member of NATO and they would not be able to stand up for very long against such a big army, especially since its soldiers are well trained and the special forces units aren't to be taken lightly.
Here's an article from Rawstory on the whole thing:www.rawstory.com/rs/2015/01/at…
It breaks my heart that so many young and bright people decide to join this crazy sect just because they think they can do something "good", they're just signing an early death warrent by doing this.
