Sad news about the shootings in Ottawa, Canada's Parliament. I never thought that Canada would become the next country dealing with terror shootings on this level. So sad that no country in the world is exempt from this type of violence. Sending prayers to the families and colleagues of the deceased soldiers from today's and yesterday's tragedies. Shout outs to my Canadian fellow hubbers.
I've been glued to my computer writing, and I have not heard the news. Now I have to go turn on the TV. This sounds just terrible.
I had thought that I read a while ago that Canada did not have guns Jan.
I had not heard about this shooting, but than I do not listen to the news.
So, what happened?
Yesterday, an alleged Isis symathizer ran down two military soldiers with his car. One soldier died. Today, another alleged Isis sympathizer shot and killed a soldier on guard at the war memorial. He then ran two blocks and into the Parliament buiding and got into a gun fight with police. Both suspects in both incidents were killed by police. There may have been another gunmen but they are not sure.
Yesterday 2 soldiers in Quebec were run down on the street. One was killed. Today, a shooter shot and killed a soldier who was guarding the War Memorial. The shooter then ran into the parliament building and fired off 30-50 shots before he was killed by security. Latest news is that the shooter had a police record and had been sent for a psych assessment at one point. It is thought that he was acting independently. Or possibly with an accomplice.
Thanks for the update and detail, June. Peace.
Thanks for the update, Kevin. Did you hear about the attack on NYPD officers in Queens? A man attacked 4 officers today on the street with a hatchet. They shot him dead. Two officers were seriously injured. The suspect allegedly had ties to Muslim extremists. Let us all take seriously what is happening, be vigilant, and pray for peace.
I believe that stricter controls should be implemented regarding the ISIS situation. We should demolish ISIS. ISIS is dangerous and it has to be completely annihilated. There will be no peace with ISIS and the only way to remedy the situation is demolish ISIS. The purpose of ISIS is to destroy democracy and civilization as we know it.
Have you ever wondered how we may have contributed to the creation of ISIS? Are we harmless in actions over there from the beginning? War begets war and where does it stop? You are trifling an ideology that has been growing for well over seventy years.
No, I only watch TV for about 1-2 hours with each meal. I read it when I look up something.
