So, is this France's 9/11 minus the number of people killed? Some people did something?

They should just invite more muslims into their country!

What I don't get is how the fire got out of control so fast it did this much damage.

The building is in the middle of Paris, visited and photographed many thousands of times per day.

How the fuck did it go up like a barn full of straw in the boonies?

Surely there are French cops stationed around the place to prevent this sort of thing - like they do at the major landmarks in the U.S and UK?

Maybe someone sprayed some flammable liquids on the structure - like a lot of gasoline. If multiple arsonists were involved you could see how it would have gotten so large that fast.

Yeah, I really suspect an accelerant but the media of course is saying different.
