    The British Empire shall never fall!!! Her Majesty The Queen and her godly powers as the Supreme Governor of The Church of England and Defender of the Faith will protect us!

    I must say the chaos on the streets of Paris really makes one think of the 1793-4 Terror under Robspierre. The Jacobins were arguably much better at terrorism...

    Crikey. It's all about sport, isn't it?
    It's an obvious target, where you have large groups of people gathered in one place alongside dignitaries at a prestige event. The priority has to be to protect Britains until we have established that this was an isolated attack, especially considering our recent actions in Syria being almost identical to those of France.

    Calm down Donald Trump, you're not in America now.

    It's not the Queen who looks after us but the men and women of our security/armed forces:

    lmfao I actually am in America mate. Or should I say, 'dude'?

    Her Majesty is the root of it all. She even protected Diana, Princess of Wales - she only got killed when she got to Paris, where the Duke of Normandy's powers don't reach.

    I would never compare the likes of the Jacobins, the founders of whom were very well educated and contributed to one of the world's most democratic and advanced countries in the world, to that of a group of mindless killers with no history and no understandable or sympathetical ideology/aims.

    Only under the Jacobins could you be arrested for being a "moderate" - still they had the sans culottes.

    The only difference between revolution and terrorism is often history, written by the victor.

    Hardly democratic, the Third Estate couldn't vote. Terror wise it is getting there.

    I would, as in the Commons Bar, like to add my voice to the condemnation of these barbarous attacks and note that we stand shoulder to shoulder with the French people at this difficult time. While the intentions of the Government are virtuous, I am a little uneasy at the thought of the attacks being used to launch fictional actions within the confines of our game and find it a little distasteful to say the least and so I will comment no further than simply to reaffirm my condemnation of the attacks.

    There you have it… I hope that people will finally wake up and realise what they've done and allowed to be done to Europe and take it back! I also hope that this encounter with the worst of human scum will make you, my colleagues, reconsider capital punishment.

    Islamic State; the most likely culprits. Although nothing has been confirmed- it strongly looks like it.

    Once again, we need to eradicate ISIS, and stop these immigrants from coming to Europe and destroying Europe!

    reconsider capital punishment.
    Including for the ones who blew themselves up?

    Capital punishment does not work on dead people.

    Edit: but then, it doesn't work on living people either.

    There are many people in the United Kingdom including myself who have relatives living in Paris. None of my family were anywhere near the attacks fortunately. I hope the Government and the whole House will express its sympathy for anyone who has been injured or bereaved, regardless of their nationality, as well as condemning the attacks.

    I commend the government.

    Mr Speaker, the Caliphate has been allowed to exist too long. The time for action is now and I call on the government to deploy the army to Syria immediately, there is no doubt that the French will join us.

    I have to agree. A message of condemnation is a good thing to put out, but using this tragedy as the basis of fictitious activity in a game doesn't feel right for me.

    What we needed for so long is finally happening:

    Instead of staying back, taking refugees and being worried it'll be 'another Iraq', there needs to be a NATO ground invasion, or a joint special forces infiltration - ISIS are not like the Taliban, they're more paramilitary-style than the Taliban and Al Qaeda were.
    Their military is based on mobile foot militant units using light vehicles such as gun equipped pick-up trucks (technicals), motorbikes and buses for fast advances. They also use artillery, tanks and armoured vehicles captured from the Iraqi and Syrian Armies. It is alleged that the ISIL military had gained control of 3 aircraft from the Syrian Army and are flying them over Syria, although two of these were reportedly shot down by Syria.
