Shooting of the Week

Rum, beer, women, movies, nice websites, gaming, etc., without interrupting the flow of martial threads.

Frankly, isn't it expected? It's exactly what the mosque and synagogue attackers wanted. Aren't we waiting for something like this to happen in the U.S.? I mean, people bomb or shoot synagogues, churches, and mosques here. Though, usually, it's not Muslims doing it.

So, imo, yeah, call them terrorists; call all of them terrorists, though. Maybe the Easter bombing was a result.

I know they'd like me to, but I can't hate Muslims for this, or for attacking a church. I save my hatred for the people who would do such a thing. I recall after a guy walked into a Christian church in the U.S. south and gunned down Christians. His captors took him to Burger King before they went to the station. I even remember a Christian church that was bombed while children were inside. Yep, I feel exactly the same about all of them. How do eliminate them all?

yes shure, one lead to another and so it goes seemingly. but this one was the "shooting(bombing)of the week" and seemingly done by islamic supremacists(IS)

You know, in Israel, when they find the home of a terrorist, they raze it to the ground. They can be found using Google, and they use social media to recruit.


Stabbing a defenseless teenage captive to death. Picking off a school-age girl and an old man from a sniper’s roost. Indiscriminately spraying neighborhoods with rockets and machine-gun fire.

Sounds like terrorism to me.

Trick, I don't know if you use Twitter, but one of your country men publishes news updates about those terrorist attacks. He goes by Peter Sweden.

not doing twitter, facebook and that sort. as i mentioned about my hometown, the bomb blasts are quite minor and intention is not to kill or hurt(but could probably do if someone stood quite nearby) but to scare, they are set off at night. its said that it is criminal gangs targeting each other, but its happening in the mids of ordinary peoples living areas...its terror for sure

Well, whaddya know, apparently this latest synagogue shooter also has a manifesto. I wonder when it's going to be posted. I didn't bother following up.

When I wrote “kind of him” I surely didn’t mean that he did a kind gesture. But I don’t know if you actually think he did a smart thing ??

I didn't know what you meant by kind, either. Yes, in a cynical way, I think it's smart. He (they) can kill to get his (their) message out, and then get to face a jury. Some of them have the kindness to commit suicide.

yes this could be a trouble with smartness or maybe it should be called cleverness, it can easily work in the unkindest ways.

Sure, I was going to use the word "slick" instead of "smart." However, the key word is "rational." It makes sense it terms of the outcome. People will call it a "hate crime," on one hand, and then claim that the killer was "mentally disturbed" or somehow impaired. No! The problem is that he was perfectly sane and rational, and the fact that he published a manifesto illustrates how rational he is.

It's not like an ex walking into his ex-wife's wedding and shooting her at the altar, or even blowing up the church while she's in it.
