You nowadays do not actually need to complete training at some dusty camp in Afghanistan, Pakistan or Syria to be part of a terrorist organisation. The flip-side of the internet and social media particularly is that people can connect and collaborate without ever meeting in person. Some Iranian kid in Germany might watch an ISIS video online and that is all it takes. :2cents:


The guy in Munich was unstable like many other young people nowadays.
How about the knife attacks in Taiwan.

These kids only get inspired by different ideas according their cultural/religious background.
In SF those unstable people jump off the Golden Gate bridge every week.
In West Berlin they used to jump in front of the train going to West Germany.
In Venice, many people go to suicide cause of their broken hearts.
In Taiwan, they wear red and jump off the buildings or knife people on a train so they can be killed by the state.

There is a recording of the incident in Munich where you can clearly hear the Iranian German say in clear high German I'm born here. I am a German. While some Bavarian dumb ass spit out his racial slur in his Bavarian accent that can be identified as German only with the use of a lot of fantasy and imagination. It had to be subtitle.

When my wife and I visited Munich, my wife got a lot of resentment, like kicking her door in the bathroom and the back of her seat on the plane. She still tells me about it every time I mention Munich.

But some people here keep up the anti foreign, pro gun, against social fairness/assistance slur.
We will see where that goes. Won't we?

Seems like there's an epidemic of "unstable" in Germany this weekend...

Machete-wielding Syrian refugee kills pregnant woman and injures two in Germany

BREAKING: At least one dead and 12 injured in suicide bomb attack at German wine bar

I'm sure it had nothing to do with Islam. It would be racist to even think such a thing.

Interestingly, no one in Germany seems to call for less gun control after these incidents.

Is that interesting, or just what you'd obviously expect? They already have reasonably sensible gun laws in Germany, why would you expect them to call for gun control? It seems obvious, but the reason some Americans call for sensible gun laws when shootings happen is because the US currently doesn't have sensible gun laws. If they did, the calls for sensible gun laws would subside.

I think you misread hannes' post. He's saying that unlike in the States, nobody claims that a good guy with a gun could have stopped a nut who suddenly started shooting from a roof, a guy with a bomb is his backpack, or somebody who whips out a machete and starts chopping the people next to him

Yep, something along those lines. Guns in the hands of criminals beat guns in the hand of law abiding citizens most of the time I would assume. Terrorists and nutcases can always choose soft targets, have the advantage of surprise, and if they are willing to die are very hard to stop.

The advantage of surprise erodes with repeated attacks. How fast it erodes is determined by the intelligence of the target.

But disarming the law-abiding is a much bigger problem. Not unrelated... the stupidity of citizens comes into play here as well, in their capacity as voters.

You could also face the Death Wish scenario, where many of the formerly law-abiding decide to switch teams.
Big government is for those who can't handle freedom. Political correctness is for those who can't handle reality.

Gun-free zones are where the gun violence happens. Ban gun-free zones before many more get killed. Also, gun violence in Europe is as bad as in US, and getting worse.

The most bigoted people in the world insist that they are the most open-minded, the cruelest people in the world insist that they are the most compassionate, and the most illogical insist that they are the most logical.

Just because Al Gore says there's a planetary emergency doesn't mean there's a planetary emergency. And just because somebody says it's science doesn't mean it's science.

Shocking! It must have been Bavarian racism that caused this Iranian kid to go on a shooting spree then. Please do inform me however when your wife plans to kill people in a shopping mall.

Don't worry. She is stable.
If Roland however, supplies her with a gun, she is having her menstruation, and you are going to kick her door, I will not inform you. :fume:
