Oh no. Link is not working, my fault Im sure. Is this the same incident as earlier. “One US Visitor killed, killer commits suicide”
Thanks for the ping Calpernia.
Yes, searched this title with no results.
How sad.Prayers for the family.
NBC saying it appears to be random with no motive....
Ok...the guy attacks Americans in broad daylight in a supposedly secure area and then immediately commits suicide...
Easily dismissed as a random non-politically motivated act. < /sarcasm>
The Chinese should appreciate Americans. After all, if we weren’t buying so much of their junk, their economy would be a mess.
It would be great if I could go into stores looking for small appliances, lamps, tools, toys, electronics ... all kinds of products.... and actually have a choice - something not made in China.
Snort. Gee, who needs the Politburo?
Huh an American is stabbed and killed and the attacker commits suicide, doesn’t sound random to me, sounds like the attacker was the regular islamic nut looking for his 72 grapes in heaven.
Well, I the perp could be your average garden variety wackdoodle. We have people going postal over here. But with all the foreigners running around Beijing at the meoment, what are the odds that the guy gets a couple of Americans to attack?
It’s shocking and very sad. Obviously the relatives were proud and delighted of their coach’s accomplishments and were there to share in what was to have been a big moment in his life .. then this.
Why they’d have to have worn any apparel indicating they were part of the US delegation for the perp to have figured out that they were Americans doesn’t make sense ... you can always pick out Americans in any crowd. But I DO think it was the lone act of the perp.
The Chinese government is probably mortified that a violent crime happened during their Olympics. It may choose at another time to wipe out millions of us in a single stroke, but a single violent crime during their moment of internaitonal glory is not what they want.
Indeed. Since they were relatives of a US volleyball coach, perhaps somebody with a stake in the volleyball competitions.
Paging Jeff Gilooley..
It may not have been what they wanted, but it’s what they got. Considering the anti-west propaganda that they feed their populace on a regular basis, they shouldn’t be one bit surprised.
Thats what you get for holding the Olympics in a 3rd world country
Not in this instance it seems, but there is this..
I won’t watch one bit of it. Normally I’d tune in for certain events, but not this year.
