I've been following this Charlie Hebdo stuff all morning. Jesus Christ. Unreal.
One of the things I don't get (one of many), and putting aside for the moment the larger question of why use violence at all in a war of ideas, is why the men masked themselves. If they believe what they're doing is right, and aren't afraid of the consequences, then why hide? Masking oneself and fleeing is an admission that what you are doing is wrong.
And at a more crass level, these nimrods haven't heard of the Streisand Effect, either.
Assholes. Cowardly assholes.
