    You must be speaking of German-Iranian Ali David Sonboly.

    And in today's wonderful world ...

    Syrian attacker who injured 12 in Bavaria was denied asylum, official says

    https://www.thestar.com/news/world/2...cial-says.html

    “If there is an Islamist link or not is purely speculation at this point,” said the spokesman, Michael Schrotberger.

    The explosion in the southern German state came just two days after a man went on a deadly rampage at a Munich mall, killing nine people, and after an axe attack on a train near Wuerzburg last Monday wounded five.

    The immigration issue may cost Angela her job and give more credence to Le Pen in France.

    I'm really not seeing a lot of US media picking up on the story (note all the UK addresses). Considering there are about 70 million Catholics in the US (about 22% of population) you'd think it would be more of a story.

    The French name the enemy and admit they are at war?

    Top story at www.nypost.com and it was on local TV news this morning.

    So clearly, WINNING!

    Let's get down to the brass tacks of the issue. Did you have any inkling before it happened the Obama administration was the one to get it done regarding Bin Laden? I realize that's but one 'win' but the question as it is stands. Does anyone really, truly, honestly deep down think that behind closed doors they aren't saying, "Let's kick their ***!"? The fact is do any true search and you'll find report after report that we pushing them around, going after them financially and keeping them on the run. Doesn't mean anything has been won but foreign generated attacks on US soil are not on the rise compared with 8 years ago, but you can bet that attempts are up.

    I don't need the President to utter any supposed magic words to make me feel better about the realities of the situation, nor do I think honestly that any administration would really sit on their hands watching it all go down. Unless you're going derp with, "He's secretly a Muslim" which in and of itself is a preposterous assertion - there's no freaking way they're not putting out a serious effort to fight the issue economically, strategically, militarily and every which way available.

    What is it with the right that is so obsessed with labels? Yes, we know your a conservative. Yes, all other conservatives but you are rino's. This is somehow very important to you. Yes, we know there is a rash of Muslim violence. No, not all Muslims are violent...the vast majority of Muslims are fine.I would rather the government concern itself with all extremism and those that are high risk for major violence rather than -insert label here-.

    Re: Global War on Terror 8 - Winter is Coming

    Saw a tweet from Reuters (should be reputable), another possible attack in Germany. Explosion in Nuremberg near a migration office. Haven't seen confirmation on any other sites.

    edit: http://www.reuters.com/article/us-eu...-idUSKCN1071X3

    "suitcase full of aerosols" was blown up. Hopefully not too serious, but I have no idea how much damage a suitcase full of aerosols could cause.

    edit2:
    Police now saying there was a detonation, but no explosion, and most importantly, no injuries. Not sure how you can have a detonation, but no explosion, seems like splitting hairs. But, regardless of what happened, best possible outcome. Also, no information on what or who caused this, could be anything from terrorists to 12 year boys playing a prank at this point.

    I'm sure many on the right would like to ask the left the same question, especially with all the labels ending in -ist and -ism.

    Many secular thinkers now regard “religion” as inherently belligerent and intolerant, and an irrational, backward and violent “other” to the peaceable and humane liberal state

    Wouldn't that statement make secular thinkers intolerant, because of their intolerance towards religious beliefs?
