Washington DC and The Holy Land>Looks like another attack in Paris at Notre Dame-just a crazy man or terrorist?

OOPS! :-)

Paris (AFP) - A French police officer shot and injured a man who attacked him with a hammer outside Paris's Notre-Dame cathedral on Tuesday, authorities said.

Police sealed off the area in front of the cathedral, where the attacker lay injured on the ground.

The attack comes with France on high alert for more jihadist strikes after a weekend attack in London, where extremists used a van and knives to crush to death and kill seven people, one of them French.

Authorities in Paris asked the public to stay away from Notre-Dame, one of France's biggest tourist attractions situated on the banks of the Seine river in the heart of the capital.

French TV reported scenes of panic during the shooting, with tourists scrambling for cover.

France is under a state of emergency and on its highest possible level of alert following a string of terror attacks that began in 2015, which have killed over 230 people.

In the last fatal attack, a policeman was shot and killed on Paris's prestigious Champs-Elysees avenue on April 20, three days before the first round of the presidential election.

Major attacks in France targeted the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine in January 2015 and in November that year, gunmen and suicide bombers attacked sites around Paris including the Bataclan concert hall, killing 130 people.

Then in July last year, a radicalised Tunisian man drove a lorry at high speed through a Bastille Day fireworks display on the Nice waterfront, massacring 86 people.

Since then there have been a series of smaller attacks, often targeting security forces.

Notre Dame currently on fire.
What a shame—heard it on my car radio a little while ago.

[QUOTE=Mr. Kotter;14207528]Why good-golly if we could get 50-60 of those things working on this....they'd be dumping a whole 928 gallons of water every couple of minutes or so, as long as they could organize and coordinate that Congo-line of "Flying Water Tankers!"

God you are an idiot. They hold 50,000 to 60,000 gallons. Someone wanted to know how fast they filled and that is from the builders spec sheet. That doesn't mean that they only hold 3,000 liters. It means that it takes a bout 15 seconds to fill that much.

You don't have the slightest idea what you are talking about.

But I get it. That won't stop you. Because...….Orange Man Bad. There is no other way.

So Notre Dame is on fire after an attack and the response from many of you is "Let's use this to make fun of Trump!" That's really the entire focus of your existence isn't it?

God you guys ****ing suck. (Virtue!)

The attack mentioned in the O.P. is from 2017. Someone necro'd an old thread and put the fire story from today into that, and that's led to some confusion.

Indeed, but the real story is that Trump said something stupid.

We should really focus on something that happens every day and not the destruction of an architectural marvel.

Don't lose focus. Even this is a political football.

Thank you for the correction. I hate necro'd threads. :-)

Which means it would take 15-20 minutes to fully load, plus flying time to get water and go back...and you are still ignoring the URBAN distinction. Might get 2-3 trips in, assuming they can be dispatched in time, by then...it's over. You may see the "trees" here, but you sure aren't seeing the friggin' forest...and neither is Trump. Hell, even FOX is making fun/laughing at it. Can't wait for SNL to weigh in on it...

Why would you think France doesn't have an air tanker?

To seconds on google shows they have at least a half dozen with 2600 gallon capacity and regularly send them out to help other countries.

I'm making fun of the Hunchback of Notre Dame who's been driven out, here at home.

Is there really an American who doesn't know this is a real thing? Other than the press, I mean.
