Really gets your macho heart thumping, doesn't it? Oooh, his gun is bigger than yours! Must be good for something. Let's go drill some bad guys! Which bad guys? I don't know. Just look for someone who's different. Maybe one of those oddball kiwi blokes. They talk funny.

Also completely and utterly useless as a tactic to prevent terrorist attacks of the type happening.

Unconfirmed, but multiple media outlets are reporting the vehicle driver shouted "I'm going to kill all Muslims" during the incident

Failing to recognise peoples differences is what causes these problems in the first place.

 

 

No, what caused "these problems in the first place" was the US/West trying to force "capitalism" and their own views of "democracy" in regions that didn't have it, and didn't ever want it. But hey, oil, right.

...an organisation whose members have a penchant for martyrdom.

 

 

Please don't generalise.

 

Firstly, what "organisation"? You're making the assumption, the same as tonight's terrorist, that there is an organisation that all Muslims belong to.

 

Secondly, there's no evidence that Muslims' "penchant for martyrdom" is any stronger than Christians or Buddhists. In fact, you might argue that tonight's terrorist was attempting martyrdom, in that I'm surprised he wasn't beaten to death by the people he tried to kill.

That may say a lot for the restraint and civilised values of the people he was trying to kill.

He's not a very good planner then if he thinks one white van is all he'll need to achieve that goal!

I've said before that sooner or later someone will strike back.

British politicians have been careless in their policies to do with immigration over the last 50 years and now they'll duck for cover seeking to pin the blame elsewhere.

Hahahaha. 

 

I agree, I am absolutely fed up with christian terrorists blowing up kids at music concerts, running people over in buses, stabbing innocents randomly, crashing planes into skyscrapers, all in the name of Jesus.  How silly.

Crowd restraining him and handing him over to police to be arrested...

*edit*

Eyewitness Adil Rana, 24, said the suspected attacker was pinned to the floor by members of the public "and people were punching him and beating him, which was reasonable because of what he's done".
"And then the imam of the mosque actually came out and said: 'Don't hit him, hand him over to the police, pin him down'."


People being people and leaders thinking ahead?

Why is it not the Euro & Commonwealth (allowing Euro & Commonwealth traffic)?

 

Why is it not the colonization (where the actual first strikes took place)?

Give it time. Fanatics are the same regardless of what they wear or what they claim to believe in.
