When first getting assigned to the FRG, I remember getting off the plane in the military side of Rhein-Main back in the mid 80s. The entire lobby had been blown up by a bomb in one of the lockers.

That was back in the Red Army Faction days.

I hate to come to the defense of Bill Clinton, but . . .

One of the dirty little secrets about that Kosovo/Serbia conflict in the late 1990s is that some of the strongest supporters of Kosovo were the same "neo-cons" who ended up in the Bush administration and orchestrated the Iraq mess.

"War on Terror," my @ss.

The tragic part is that these guys probably just finished tours in Iraq and Afghanistan just to get shot dead in a german airport.

What are the chances of getting an honest report of this person’s real name and so-called ‘religon’, much less their motive(s)?

I’ll bet that Germany loves the idea that it is a Islamists battlefield and charmed knowing that Islam poses no threat to anyone.

Another milestone in multiculturalism.

The Republic of Kosovo is not an "Islamic state" - it is a parliamentary democracy whose current governing parties are secular, not religious.

There is no evidence that the terrorist murderer in question was acting on behalf of the government of Kosovo in any capacity.

Leave the putting of rhetoric over facts to Democrats.

You would have to check some of the more honest sources, such as AL JAZEERA TV or PRAVDA.

During WWII they had their own Waffen SS Division, the 13th Handschar, recruited by Mohammad Amin al-Husayni.

No, but they very likely are acting on behalf of their religion.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kosovo#Religion
The two main religions of Kosovo are Islam and Christianity. Muslims make up 90% of Kosovo’s population,and followers are mostly Sunni, with a Bektashi Islam minority.

Right. When will people ever learn?

It's kind of obvious to me that the whole thing is a farce when this government engages in this global "war on terror" without ever naming any enemies and while turning a blind eye to prominent supporters of radical Islamic terrorism (e.g., Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, etc.).

IIRC Kosovo was already taken over by Muslim’s pushing out people who couldn’t stand the heat, but had lived there far longer than the usurpers. Bill Klinton just assisted in the takeover.

Human rights, and property rights, out the window with the baby and the bathwater.

The United States has p!ssed away thousands of American lives and hundreds of billions of dollars to topple the Ba'athist government in Iraq. The "new" government is operating under a constitution where Islam is recognized as the official state religion, and Chaldean Christians are now fleeing the place by the thousands.

If this makes sense to anyone, please wake me up and fill me in on it.

I remember those. I read that the bottom-right woman fled to East Germany and was arrested and sent to prison after the wall came down. I believe any who were in jail are out by now though, even if they were sent up for murder. Germany doesn’t have long prison sentences.

Heartbreaking. Prayers for these servicemen who were innocent targets in a public area. Pray for their families and loved ones.

So sick of our servicement sacrificing it all for ungrateful degenerates across the world. None of them deserve our valiant aid or sacrifice!!!

“I’ll bet that Germany loves the idea that it is a Islamists battlefield and charmed knowing that Islam poses no threat to anyone.”

Two years ago I was in Sweden talking to a man in the German Education ministry. German understands that the Islamic population is not being assimilated. We talked at length about how the USA seems to have resolved at least from a distance the divide between blacks and the rest of America and how the US has integrated its Asian population as well.

Part of the our conclusion was that, whether you like the idea or not, the US military and the wars that have been fought have really broken down ethnic and racial barriers in the US. That coupled with education, when it was working better in this country and an expanding middle class allowed those willing to adopt American ideals, allowed them to enjoy the benefits of the American lifestyle.

All the more reason the international leftist Bill Clinton doesn't get a pass.

US presidents are still capable of acting in our sovereign interests, in spite of the fact that every one since x40 has largely chosen not to.

I want to curse.

That could have easily been my son.

Instead, I’ll pray. Primarily for the families and that this country regains its moral sanity before it’s too late.
