    That's what I thought too... If it were terrorism, they'd try to kill a massive amount of people and strike a public area. Seems they were looking to kill specific people. I am glad their PM is ok though. That would have been a national tragedy. I think there is a lot going on in their politics that we don't know about.

    It's important to not jump to conclusions until we know for sure who is behind it.

    Although, I will admit it's interesting to watch people immediately blame Arabs.

    You mean this journalist who blogged this an hour before the OP?

    Update at 10:14 a.m. ET: Although the source of the blast is unclear, Al-Jazeera TV notes that Norwegian prosecutors on Tuesday filed a terrorism charge against Mullah Krekar, founder of the Kurdish Islamist group Ansar al-Islam. Mullah Krekar is accused of threatening a former minister, Erna Solberg, with death, Al-Jazeera says.

    A male is definitely to blame... They are so violent and commit more crimes, rapes, and murders than anybody else in the world.

    I agree we should not jump to conclussons. However I will say that I highly doubt that these acts of terrorism where commited by Islamic extremist. Afterall Islam is a religion of peace. Holy-war or jihad against infidels is a myth perpetrated by evil right wingers in an attempt to conjure up feelings of distrust and hatred towards muslims. I am also taking bids on the Brooklyn Bridge.

    You mean you think it was men, because Muslim women aren't violent.

    Aha! So it wasn't Arabs! Now Kurds can now be thrown onto the pile with all the filthy Arabs!

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    I have no idea who did this. Does it matter if it was men or women? Could it have been one of the many misunderstanders of Islam. Could it have been evil heartless devil worshiping right wingers? I say we wait to find out it was jihadist before we blame jihadist.
