Terrorists attacked Paris on Nov. 13, 2015. What's next?

Paris attacks:  What we now know and don't know (New York Times)

There were no "hard" (military) targets at all.

The blood-thirsty terrorists simply aimed to kill as many people as possible.

They attacked a concert hall, a soccer stadium (from the outside, fortunately--a security guard prevented the ticket-holding terrorist from entering, thus saving many lives), and several restaurants.  They even returned to some of the targets to attack them again.

From the New York Times:
"The seemingly synchronized assaults that turned Paris into a war zone on Friday came just days after a bombing targeted a Shiite district of Beirut controlled by Iran’s ally, Hezbollah, and a Russian passenger jet was downed over Egypt. The rapid succession of strikes, all claimed by the Islamic State, suggested that the regional war has turned into a global one."

Eerily, and frighteningly, prescient?
