Everytime anyone runs scared outside a building, the terrorists win. It's all in the name.

Don't they also win if people don't run scared outside the building and instead die in the firey inferno?

I got evacuated from the Eiffel tower once due to a bomb threat. It was a very strange thing to see it completely empty.

I was evacutated from the Musee D'Orsay after a suspicious package was found. Why didn't I make the news?
 
2010-09-14 4:47:27 PM  
I bet they surrendered. Ha ha ha. I'm so creative.

Yeah they win, but not until a few years pass and they build a mosque there.

Meh, details.

The proper, fark liberal solution to terrorism is simply to ignore it, regardless of how explodey or fiery it may or may not be.

Not if we exit the building quietly, in single file lines, singing the Mickey Mouse club theme song.

First, i'd check the employees. Specifically, chronically-late ones..

Also what's the point of trying to bomb the eiffel tower? Unless you're using cutting charges, there's nowhere for the blast to be concentrated enough to do that much damage (it's a big open structure with the exception of the viewing areas..)

Twisted Metal Reference, anyone?

I loved the Paris level.

Better send in Team America.

Has anything ever actually happened as a result of a bomb threat? I don't think I've seen a threat followed by an explosion.

/Nothing to see here, move along.

Still, they win.

How about instead of evacuating the Eiffel Tower, the French forces just hand out Qurans and lighters, or is that too much too soon?

What a Bond on the Eiffel Tower may look like...

/oh, bomb... does the film count?

Has anybody mentioned that "evacuating" is a lot like "retreating"?
 
2010-09-14 4:51:45 PM  
Just some thinly veiled criticism. Nothing to see here folks.

I once had a scare at the Eiffel tower. I was square in the middle of it, on the ground and looked straight up, got dizzy and fell over.

I believe it was reverse vertigo or the wine.
