Sudden Jihad Syndrome in Germany?

See: Gunman Shouting 'Allah Akbar' Kills 2 US Airmen in Germany

When he opened fire, the gunman shouted "Allah Akbar," according to sources. He fired nine times, killling two and critically wounding two others before the gun jammed and he was subdued by other passengers. While being wrestled into submission, the suspect shouted either "Jihad Jihad" or "Allah Akbar," sources said.

A man whose office is near the site of the shooting said it was an area where buses load arriving passengers. Speaking on condition of anonymity to protect his business, he said witnesses told him that the gunman first talked to the military personnel to find out who they were and then opened fire, shouting “God is great” in Arabic.

The gunman, Arif Uka, is a Kosavar from the town of Mitrovica

Were the Americans on this bus specifically targeted, or were they just targets of opportunity? Arif Uka had a gun at an airport. That suggest that something was planed, even if the particulars and details were not. An airport is a likely place to find Americans. His plan, if he had much of a plan at all, may have been to go to an airport, listen and watch for a large group of Americans - and then shoot them.

Terror does not have to be well planed or planed in much detail. It just requires the will to carry it out.

It is an unfortunate fact of life that there are people out there in the wilds of the Internet that think it cute to post racist and Nazi garbage on other peoples websites. Some of these thugs are even enabled by people who should know better. In my opinion, both the thugs and their enablers are worse than spammers.

I have recently made enemies with a particular group of these people who have done just that on another website. I don't intend to make it easy for them to do that to me.

In light of that, comment moderation will be used here on this humble and very obscure little blog.

I will check in several times each day to approve appropriate comments.

For the most part, I will allow just about any type of comment except for spam and Kilgorian excrement.
