    The religion of peace strikes again. Stand strong, I'm from the Washington area and one of my neighbors was killed on AA flight 77 which hit the Pentagon, there are many of us in the world who have been affected by terrorism but we can't ever let them win by succumbing to fear.
  2. Reports say the shooter on the island was of Nordic appearance and the camp would be an odd choice for a jihad as elements of this youth group were calling for a boycott of Israel. But its a f*cked up world so who knows.
  3. Actually, we don`t know that yet.

    It was a native Norwegian speaking the local tongue that were arrested for the shooting on the island.

    Although islamic terrorism was my first thought when I heard of this, there are other extreme groups as well that are capable of doing something like this.

    Interesting, I just assumed because ther is an Islamic group claiming responsibility, the "Helpers of the Global Jihad", but they could be full of shit.
  5. Yeah, I believe there are more than one Islamic group claiming responsibility for the attacks since they would want that, but it may be false claims.

    It will be very interesting when we get to know some facts about what really happened.

    This is a national tragedy. 7 confirmed killed in bombing in Oslo, 10 confirmed in the shootings at Utøya where the labour party held their annual youth camp. Witnesses tells of far more casualties.

    "I wish I could have been at Utøya to tell him to shoot me instead of these innocent children" Fabian Stang, mayor of Oslo.

  8. Norway population 5 million, 91 dead so far in this attack

    USA population 310 million, 3000 dead in 9/11 attacks

    You get psychopaths in any society, Norway's ratio for the number dead is higher than 9/11, will their response to this 'new threat' be same as the USA? I doubt it, sanity will prevail.
  9. “We are not sure whether he was alone or had help,” a police official, Roger Andresen, said at a televised news conference. “What we know is that he is right-wing and a Christian fundamentalist.” So far Mr. Breivik has not been linked to any anti-jihadist groups, he said.


    ¶ “Compared to other countries I wouldn’t say we have a big problem with right-wing extremists in Norway,” Mr. Stoltenberg told reporters at a news conference. “But we have had some groups, we have followed them before, and our police is aware that there are some right-wing groups.”
