Maybe some fermented lutefisk in someone’s lunch bag just spontaneously combusted.

Hope no one is seriously injured.

Not good at all.

Seriously, does Norway have “homegrown” terrorists (such as the Basque separatists in Spain) who could have done this, or is the finger pointing at the usual suspects?

I gotta tell you, from the photo, it looks like a building is collapsing in the far distance. I wish I could link the photo, but I have access issues at work.

No. Clearly white, gun-owning, Ron Paul supporters are responsible for this.

Look at the second building. It seems to be sagging in the middle.

I think if these buildings were made with unreinforced concrete like the Kobar towers, the outcome would be the same. It could be a similar bomb.

And Norway has been like a prison wife to the radical Muslims. I think they’ll respond to this attack by bowing lower.

“Michelle Malkin just tweeted that Norway had just taken some sort of action against a Muslim Cleric.”

What did they do? Limit him to 5 wives? Cut back one of his welfare payments? Stop him from beating his wife to death? Told him he couldn’t bomb the PM building?

An explosion in Oslo has blown out most of the windows of a 17-storey government building which contains the Prime Minister's office, according to reports.

A witness reported that as many as eight people had been hurt, although the Prime Minister is believed to be safe.

Nearby offices in the Norwegian capital are being evacuated.

Large amounts of glass and metal have been seen in the street.

Police and fire officials have declined to comment on the cause of the explosion. One radio journalist reported from the scene.

"I see that some windows of the government headquarters have been broken.

"Some people covered with blood are lying in the street."

Oslo, Norway. The home of the Nobel Peace Prize. Neutral. Mediocre. Nothing smacking of "American exceptionalism" going on there. All religions (except Christianity) are given respect. Their foreign policy never needed to be "reset". The world loves them because they are already the epitome of what zero would wish the U.S. was too. Ergo, they will NEVER be attacked.

Cue Rev. Wright ...
