I was in my showroom watching TV and stated after the first tower was hit, “This is bin laden”. Everyone around me said, “who”? Later they asked how I knew... I said, “I am a conservative... I am informed”.

A Norwegian prosecutor has filed terror charges against an Iraqi-born cleric for threatening Norwegian politicians with death if he’s deported from the Nordic country.

So don't deport him. Feed his carcass to the hogs.

The Norwegians need to round up every Muslim in the country and send them packing, immediately. We need to do the same thing, but of course we never will.
Which is why they are doomed -- and we are doomed -- in the long run.

As per your post I note within 10 minutes most freepers realized we were @ war. Most liberals were waiting for their instructions via CNN and DNC. Were actually patriotic and pro-freedom for a few months until it came election time...

Just got home and heard about this- what a nightmare. Has it been confirmed yet this is islamists? BBC saying it COULD be local anarchists...or Libya...or jihadists..saying unlikely it’s the anarchists- most likely muslim extremists. (duuuhhh..)

We should probably be on guard here as well. I remember a few years ago there was an AQ plot to bomb our schools here and then attack the emergency crews when they came to help. Thank God school is out right now. We should expect attacks in other countries.including our own.

Exactly.

Just heard now on BBC that some of the kids trying to get away from the shooter on the island drowned while swimming - so there’s collateral deaths as well.

Friend of mine works for TSA- she said there’s a real concern now about IED’s implanted surgically in terrorists- lots of scrambling to get technology to detect such. (

Well, considering Norway has been bending over backwards to accomodate Islamism, I’m starting to wonder about the right-wing wacko theory, or maybe Islamists pretending to be right-wing wackos.

2124:

..
Obviously it’s possible this is the work of a demented lone person- we’ve had those here too. It’s just as possible to be a jihadist. Either way- they’re crazy.

But- then again- we have another choice from Hot Air:

A Norwegian police statement described those arrested as “Person 1,” a Chinese Uighur that came to Norway in the late 1990s as a refugee who was granted citizenship in 2007. “Person 2” is an Iraqi Kurd arriving in the late 1990s and holding Norwegian permanent residence status. And “Person 3” is an Uzbek asylum seeker in the early 2000s who was later granted permanent residence. All three are in their 30s.

I happened to watch the movie “Unknown” last evening and the gist of this movie was that the terrorist bombing was made to look like one thing when in fact it was about something else to fool the public, and create intended collateral damage and take the blame away from others.

We need to become cynical instead of sheep. Who benefits? and what are motivations? As in the movie I’ve come to the belief that these acts are never about what they first seem to be on the surface. Some acts create potential profit and actions and political reactions. There are many potential evil people in this world that have big time ambitions and desire for profits and to create opinions and victims.

I’m not convinced we know diddly squat about the machinations of evil, ambitious countries, groups and corrupt politicians and others except what they want us to believe.

“We should get that ridiculous black box in the middle of Mecca:”

I couldn’t agree more. Every act of terrorism should be met with a retaliatory strike at one of their ‘holy’ sites.

You are correct...the West needs to make it known that a 20-1 ratio for retaliation is our minimum...more is always better.

Unfortunately, the West does not have the collective resolve or outrage to do anything but bang our spoons on our little highchairs.

Looks like another muslim terrorist is going to get a tongue lashing from the American muslim commander-in-chief for not properly carrying out the mission to kill as many people as possible.

The death toll should have at least been in triple digits.

Of course, osalma will be using a teleprompter when he admonishes his fellow muslim for not completing the job he ordered.

Police have a suspect in custody. Looks like it was a right-wing Norwegian native trying to take members of the ruling Labor Party.
