A gunman fired upon thousands of people attending a music festival on the Las Vegas Strip Sunday night, in a brutal attack that is blamed for at least 58 deaths, police say. In the mass shooting and panic that ensued, 515 people were injured. At least one of the dead is an off-duty police officer who was attending the concert.
Editorializing: Interesting how media always emphasize ISLAMIC terrorists, but downplay domestic terrorism as psychologically disturbed individual lone-wolfs.

So what? Insults and threats aren't noticeably effective against a large nation-state especially when they are toothless (freedom fries and jokes about Germans didn't come from Dubya BTW).

"punish France, ignore Germany, forgive Russia", already forgotten Condi Rice?
The point of "punish France" being to send a message to anyone of smaller size...
When you wield the biggest economic stick, threats from the president's cabinet do matter.

How well did she do on that? There's a reason I used the word "toothless".
