I just don’t get killing 150 people with you because your girlfriend broke up with you and you are depressed. You kill yourself. You don’t take down a plane. It makes no sense. There has to be more to this story. How could he want to take down a whole plane full of people? It is just not the normal profile of suicidal.

FYI: Please stop referring to ISIS as ISIL. ISIL means Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant which encompassing Israel and the whole Middle East as one country. You are not giving any room for Israel to survive. You are saying Israel must not be allowed to exist.

There was definitely evil in the heart of that co-pilot who deliberately killing 149 innocent people, along with himself.

People kill, David, because there is evil in the heart of humanity (in my heart too, I’m ashamed to say). We can either fight against it, or give into it. Those murderers in ISIS are choosing to surrender to their evil desires; those fighting against them, particularly those like our Canadian Military who have no vested interest, are fighting against that evil and protecting the innocent from the horrors of ISIS. “Am I my Brother’s Keeper” Yes, if we’re going to call ourselves civilized, I think we must be.

Good to hear the headlines straight up.
David, why do you attack Americans killing and have nothing at all to say about the middle east slaughter of innocent people? You sound like an Islamic jihadist, boko haram, isis, etc supporter. If that is the case you need to be silent.

@ Tom & Eileen
I agree. I like just getting the facts. The MSM cannot seem to do that without leaving out some facts and injecting their opinion.

Emily Pratt, you are doing a great job!

Okay, David. I will try to field an answer for you, but I am going to narrow the topic and be specific to the ISIS situation because that is the most relevant at this time.

1. ISIS has stated that their goal is to form a Caliphate over the planet, middle east for now, but the whole planet is in their plans.

2. ISIS will murder anyone who does not believe exactly as they do and do exactly as they do. If you are an infidel you WILL be murdered.

3. If we (the Infidels) do not stop them, they WILL murder us. They have blatantly stated this over and over again.

4. They will not stop until they are dead. There is no negotiating with them. This too they have made plainly clear. There is no middle ground we can reach with them. We (the Infidels) completely convert to their interpretation of the Koran of when they get a chance, they will kill us. Convert or die.

David, I don’t know about you, but I want to keep on living for as long as I can. How about you?

Why do we have to murder people to prove our way of life is greater than yours ? A lot of people are killed every day to prevent other people from stealing ,it has been going on for centures. Is it not time to realize that it do not work.Since the USA became a nation there has not been one day when an American has not killed at least one person. It is time they find another way. Republic, Tory ,if you disagree with me then there is something wrong with you. Stop the killing.

Thankfully, the NDP and Liberals have no say in doing what’s necessary. They’re little boys who don’t understand adult problems and would rather put Canadians in more danger by allowing the islamic state to grow until it becomes a major world threat.

It is so refreshing to just “get the facts” with no embroidering of them, and with no biased interpretation of them. This is what I want to hear when I listen to the news. Thanks, Emily, for providing these for me.
