Ça va? For four hours, nothing on TV except the Paris attacks. My French has been getting a good workout. Hope you are tucked up safe at home with a good stock of provisions.
Merci, Catesse.  #824152

Quant à moi, tout va bien.

Mon fils se trouvait quelques minutes avant l’attentat devant le Bataclan. Ensuite, il s’est réfugié dans l’appartement d’un copain, à proximité. Il connaît des personnes qui ont assisté au concert en question, et un de ses amis a été blessé par balles.
Glad to hear you are OK.  #824163

I don't know how long this link will be available.
People are beginning to ask: "Why all this fuss about France? Recently Boko Haram killed over 2000 people in one day. And what about the recent outrages in Turkey and Beirut? They were in the news briefly for a day or two. Are some human lives worth more than others?"
The French Ambassador (Lecourtier) is a guest on a panel show tonight. (I have had enough for one day.) Maybe this attack in Paris will be the catalyst for serious coordinated action. It looked as though Obama and Putin were having a really serious talk today. Maybe if ISIS were to attack the Imperial Palace in Beijing???

qu’il y ait une sorte de hiérarchie dans la valeur des vies humaines, mais c’est l’échelle des valeurs des média, c’est la logique des média et non pas celle des hommes, je pense.
Quoi qu’il en soit, Paris symbolise, dans le monde entier, un idéal de liberté.

Le texte suivant est un bel exemple du rôle que notre petite ville joue dans l’esprit de beaucoup de personnes :

Cela explique peut-être pourquoi un attentat à Paris choque particulièrement

Very well put.
On TV about half an hour ago, an independent member of the Federal parliament gave an interview in which he stated that Australia should withdraw all our (few) troops from the Middle East. If we were not fighting there, IS would have no reason to carry out terrorist activities in Australia. It is not our business if they carry out murderous attack in other countries.
Superficially attractive, but fatuously naïve. IS does not need a "reason".
However, there is an underlying spark of reason. Australia has enough on its hands with troubles in Timor, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Myanmar, Fiji, the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, etc. We do not have the resources for even token police-work worldwide. Better that we look after our own region and do that properly.
