#1 What we know:

- 27yo Syrian, entered the country 2 years ago (before the big rush), was refused asylum but allowed to stay (Germany doesn't ship back to war-torn Syria)
- Lived on taxpayers' money in a flat
- Has attempted suicide twice before
- carried backpack with explosives
- tried to gain entry to a music festival with 2500 people attending but was refused entry by security because he had no ticket.
- hung around at the entrance for a while then went airborne.
- sharp small metal fragments found suggest the bastard wanted to do maximum damage
- was reanimated but died shortly hereafter

#2 3 times in one week. Either this is incredible bad luck (still possible!) or this is Enemy action.

A few more such incidents, and something important is going to break.

#4 Ex-congresswoman claims Israel behind European massacres

Cynthia McKinney links to video ‘proving’ Israel responsible for Nice, Munich attacks because German photographer supposedly at both scenes is married to former MK: see here:

But then, Cynthia McKinney was always a few seeds short of a watermelon...

#5 I wonder how many in "African-American Community" share her views.

#6 Lately I've been wondering about these terror attacks in the west, as nasty as they've been they just don't seem big enough or blingy enough to really make an impression. Think what a statement multiple IED attack on the peloton of the Tour de France would make.

I'm left to choose between these alternatives (or some combination):
1) Our intelligence is much better than it seems and the big events a quietly squashed.
2) The jihadi network just ain't that big.
3) The leading jihadis are ignorant about what would get attention
4) They're really stupid.

9/11 was a very big very splashy event. What's happened since then that really made a mark granted that the MSM won't push any story that says bad things about the Muzzies.

#7 Police have just confirmed that there is an IS background. Looks like they found a video.

#9 I'll take number four, AlanC. But Nice, Brussels and Orlando were pretty big.

#10 Paris was pretty big. Germany has so far been lucky enough to avoid anything that big but the minor incidents seem to be on the rise.

#11 That's their way of war AC. They always start small and, if there's no strong response, escalate.

#12 Maybe g(r)om, but it's the discrepancy between 9/11 and what's come since that I find curious.

There are so many big targets that they could go for with little to no increase in their resources. By big I mean high PR value. Hollywood red carpets, Tour de France, Olympics, Cannes etc. that would really rattle the china. I kind of believe it's a little of everything but...........

#13 That's what I learned in first Intifada, AC. When you replace another reserve unit. On the first day you trow stones on your patrol. If you don't respond strongly. Next day there will be empty bottles. If you still don't respond like Attila the Hun, the next day it will be Molotovs.

#14 "Cynthia McKinney was always a few seeds short of a watermelon..."

No, #4 EB, that idiot is a few watermelons short of a seed. >:-(

And so are the "people" who keep voting for her.
