I think we all knew this was coming, we saw the waves of young men coming from the middle east as refugees, we knew that amongst them there are certain to be some very sick people that mean us harm.

One interesting thing. Is the media blackout of the siege, well done to the french this time, they learnt the lessons from previous events and took one weapon away from the enemy. Theres nothing worse than the attackers being able to watch the events on live tv whilst you are trying to keep your moves from them.
