    Damn.

    Looks like the french police deserve a round of applause for this operation.

    My favorite part is that the brothers didn't even know their "hostage" was in the building with them - he was hiding Solid Snake style in a cardboard box and was updating the police via cellphone the whole time. Badass!

    Damnit, I am sad to hear they were killed. Read that they were yelling out they wanted to die "martyrs", would have been glad to see them rot in jail for the rest of their lives.

    Glad to see they were brought down, too bad they got the easy way out though.

    GIGN is the best counter-terrorism unit in the world. Bad ass.

    I could see Hollywood coming out with a 2 hour movie about a guy in a box. I'm not saying it'd be a good movie, but I could see them coming out with one

    Yea, it was called, wait for it... Buried and it was actually pretty good (considering.)

    Can't say I'm versed in armed combat but I would have expected to see shotguns or other weapons with a little more stopping power on the front line.

    Any reason why a lot of them had pistols? It didn't look like a police team but rather a much more tactical unit.
