Possibly because you regard them as tools and not magical talismans with a life and powers all their own.

As for "bloody weekend", 6 dead in a population of ~2.7 million is only 0.0002 percent. According to my Journalism Style Guide, this is "mostly not dead".

[PUBLISH.TWITTER]
A boom-mobile on Sunday targeting an Afghan police headquarters in the western province of Ghor killed at least 12 civilians and maimed more than 100, officials said.

The attack took place in Feroz Koh, the capital of Ghor, a province that has not seen much violence compared to some other regions of the conflict-wracked country.

"The Lions of Islam detonated an explosives-filled car as a result 12 non-combatants were killed and more than 100 people were maimed," the interior ministry said.

Juma Gul Yakoobi, a Ghor health official, told AFP victims also included members of security forces.

The presidency blamed the Taliban
...mindless ferocity in a turban...
for the attack.
Tolo News adds:
The incident happened around 11am local time after a Toyota Corolla-brand vehicle "loaded with explosives" exploded close to the police headquarters and government offices for women, deaders and disabled affairs, the statement said.

Eyewitnesses said that a number of nearby buildings were damaged in the boom-mobile.

Islamists, Darfur allies of al-Bashir regime call to involve them in Sudan's transition
[SUDANTRIBUNE] Islamist and Darfur region political groups that participated in the regime of the ousted President Omer al-Bashi, on Saturday, launched a political programme saying they want to "make the transitional period successful".

The alliance of the National Programme Forces (NPF) held a meeting at the Friendship Hall in Khartoum on Saturday to inaugurate its political platform including issues of peace, federal governance, and the formation of the election commission.

"We are proposing a national project to contribute to the national construction and to reject exclusion and resentment," said NPF chairman Tijani al-Sissi who joined al-Bashir regime after signing the Doha peace agreement in July 2011.

Al-Sissi further announced the coalition’s support for the peace agreement signed between the government and the Sudanese Revolutionary Front on October 3.

Al-Sissi and other Darfurian groups who participated in the former government say they do not share the Islamist and totalitarian nature of the ousted regime but they were linked with it by a peace agreement to preserve the lives of displaced people and refugees in Darfur.

However,
it was a brave man who first ate an oyster...
other Darfur groups signatory of peace deals with the al-Bashir regime distanced themselves from the alliance refusing to associate themselves with Islamists groups like the Popular Congress Party (PCP) which backed al-Bashir until its collapse.

The NPF consists of the Sudan Renaissance Alliance of Tijani al-Sissi, the PCP, the Democratic Unionist Party’s faction of Ahmed Bilal, the Justice Party led by Bechara Aru, the Third Way group, and the Union of Independent Representatives, a group of former MPs in the dissolved parliament, headed by Abu al-Gasim Burtom and some other small groups.

The PCP political secretary Abdel-Wahab Saad said that the new programme calls to return to the 2005 Sudanese Interim Constitution, to avoid fallacies about the constitutional document.

Saad further said they called on the Forces for Freedom and Change to put an end to the current political polarization and to reach consensus on the success of the transition period."

For his part, Political Secretary of the Justice Party, Bechara Aru, said that the national programme is open to everyone and accepts all possible changes to make the transitional period successful.

"The forces signing the national program are supportive of democratic transformation through elections," he stressed.

Europe
Thousands rally in Paris in protest at murder of teacher Samuel Paty by refugee Islamist terrorist, 18, who FILMED moment he beheaded him for showing pupils cartoons of Prophet Mohammed and then posted grisly clip online
See also here, and here.
[Daily Mail, where America gets its news] Samuel Paty, 47, was stabbed to death and beheaded by Aboulakh Anzorov, 18, in a northern suburb of the French capital on Friday afternoon.

Demonstrators also gathered in major cities including Lyon, Toulouse, Strasbourg, Nantes, Marseille, Lille and Bordeaux.

It has been revealed that Islamist terrorist Anzorov filmed himself killing and then beheading Paty outside the gates of his school in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine before sharing a video of the victim's severed head to fellow ISIS supporters.

It also emerged that the half-sister of the Russian-born killer travelled to Syria to join ISIS in 2014 and was the subject of an anti-terror investigation.
Previously reported as the half-sister of the complaining father — no doubt it will soon be revealed which is true.
Investigations are focusing on Brahim Chnina, father of a 13-year-old girl in Paty's class, who denounced the teacher online and gave details of the school. He has since been arrested.

Branding Mr Paty a thug in a video posted on Twitter sometime in the last week, he asked the community to complain about the teacher's behaviour. The killer is presumed to have seen the video and acted upon it.

After the killing, Anzorov himself shared pictures and videos online with Chechen ISIS Telegram channels, and also denounced President Emmanuel Macron as the 'leader of the infidels'.

Chnina, the concerned parent, and an Islamic activist friend, Abdelhakim Sefrioui, are among 11 people who have been arrested in connection with the attack.

The video shared by Chnina sparked community outrage and was shared by a mosque in Pantin, a Parisian suburb. Days later, Mr Paty was stabbed and decapitated.
More from the Daily Mail article in Skidmark’s comment, below
Police today raided the homes of dozens of suspected militants in a crackdown which interior minister Gerald Darmanin said was intended to send a message that 'enemies of the Republic' will not enjoy 'a minute's respite'.

Darmanin told Europe 1 radio that police operations were continuing against 'dozens of individuals' after 11 people were arrested over the weekend and Emmanuel Macron vowed new measures against extremism.

He said there were about 80 investigations under way into online hate speech in France and that he was looking into whether or not certain groups from the French Muslim community should be dissolved.

According to Le Monde, Anzorov had tried to bribe students with hundreds of euros for information about the teacher, with a 15-year-old pupil apparently among those arrested. The boy 'absolutely denies knowing what Anzorov was going to do,' said an investigating source.

Investigators believe 'support for ISIS and other links to extreme Islamism' prompted Anzorov to approach the Bois-d'Aulne school with weapons including a 14-inch kitchen knife and an air pistol.

Anzorov had travelled 50 miles from his home in Evreux to get to the school, where Mr Paty taught history and geography.

Anzorov 'had recently taken up boxing' and had been dismissed from a 'wrestling club in Toulouse' last year, a source told Le Parisien. The club was registered by the French Wrestling Federation but was known for attracting radicalised youths, including many of Chechen origin.

Female Trump supporter attacked, hospitalized following altercation with Women's March activists in DC
Yesterday’s Reuters report completely neglected to mention that the Women’s March was actually a counter protest, and that it was not just the usual run of Fourth Wave feminists screeching.
[PostMillennial] A female Trump supporter was allegedly attacked and hospitalized by Women’s March and Black Lives Matter activists after she participated in a pro-Trump rally on Saturday in Washington D.C.

Isabella Maria DeLuca, whose bio identifies her as a Turning Point USA ambassador, posted images of her injuries while recovering at a local hospital. NationalFile identified DeLuca as the Outreach Director for the pro-Trump organization Republicans for National Renewal.

While there was no footage of the attack, a Breitbart News news hound attending the event captured footage of DeLuca waving a Trump flag and shouting "four more years" earlier in the day.

In a statement provided to the publication, DeLuca alleges that she was assaulted by a "older female."

"The first woman was a white older woman — she had glasses on, a glittery bedazzled Black Lives Matter shirt," DeLuca said. "She looked like she could’ve been my grandma, honestly."

According to DeLuca, the younger assailant grabbed DeLuca’s pro-Trump flag and when she tried to grab it back, the woman allegedly punched and choke her. DeLuca said that she felt reluctant to defend herself due to the advanced age of her attacker but was determined to retrieve the flag when it was snatched.

DeLuca told the publication that a younger female Black Lives Matter supporter assisted the older woman who had initially assaulted her by hitting, pushing, and punching DeLuca.

DeLuca was hospitalized following the attack and treated with a cervical collar due to her head and neck injuries. She told the publication that she was suffering from blurry vision and dizziness due to the impact.

Trump supporters turned out in Washington DC outside the Supreme Court today to show their support for Amy Coney Barrett. They were met by a large group of counter-protestors from the Women’s March and Black Lives Matter movements.

Israel-Palestine-Jordan
Russian fighter approaches Israeli passenger jet over Mediterranean
[IsraelNationalNews] A Russian fighter jet was involved in an air “incident” with an Israeli civilian aircraft Sunday.

According to a report by Yediot Aharonot Monday morning, an Israir Airlines Airbus A320 aircraft was flying from the Greek island of Rhodes back to Israel’s Ben Gurion International Airport Sunday afternoon, when a Russian Air Force Su-27 fighter jet approached it without warning.

The Russian fighter jet reportedly approached the Israeli aircraft as soon as the civilian plane entered Cypriot airspace.

The report said that the Israeli plane and its passengers were not in danger during the incident. The Su-27 flew to within a distance of approximately one mile (1.6 kilometers) from the A320, and travelled at high speed during the incident.

Several additional civilian aircraft were in the vicinity at the time of the incident, and also reported the disruption to Cypriot air traffic officials, who worked to ensure that the civilian planes remained at a safe distance from the Russian fighter.

Russia has reportedly increased its air activity around Cyprus, ostensibly to protect Russian forces operating off the Syrian coast, east of Cyprus.
