Countless blogs/forums/social media feeds are full with "How could this happen?, "I can't believe it!". I'm sitting here in disbelief over these individuals. I don't understand how people thought this wouldn't occur. These events will occur more and more frequently now. Plastering posts and pictures of "Praying for Paris" won't help.
I totally agree, personally I've been expecting a major attack like this to happen for a last year or so, surprised it didn't happen sooner. While security services are most certainly doing their best there's no way they are going to uncover every single plot and discover every single terrorist among thousands and thousands of radicals living in Europe.
It's pretty easy to understand why organizations like ISIS exist from this viewpoint. Here in the west we have high quality education systems, endless amounts of information, pretty much everybody can read and so on, yet we still have so many people who are very much incapable of independent and critical thinking. Then go to countries like Iraq and Somalia where people are much less educated, some can't even read, no wonder it's so easy for religious leaders to brainwash people to believe whatever they want.
Absolutely we are also going to see more of this stuff within next 2 years, I'm glad I don't live in any major Western European city. The terrorists have won and there's no hope to be seen.
