    Main target is Tunisia itself, namely the state form it's chosen.

    Not that the thugs care about how many Western tourists go in the process, this hurts the tourist industry. One of the prime revenue sources.

    Nothing new, it's the same thing the brotherhood did (and is doing) in Egypt and with the same goal.

    Tunisia attack: Majority of dead were British, says Tunisia PM
    The majority of the 38 people killed in the attack on a Tunisian beach resort were British, the country's prime minister Habib Essid has said.
    Islamic State extremists have claimed responsibility for the attack ~

    An emergency Cobra meeting chaired by the prime minister is due to take place later to look at the UK's response to the attacks. Link.
    Just horrible. My condolences to all the victims and relatives of all nationalities.

    Just imagine if this had happened in the States. Every gun nut there would currently be clearing the gun shop shelves of AK47s and their ammo
    Do you really have to go there in this thread?

    This is a horrifc event and my thoughts go out to the victims and their families.
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    The current toll is 39 dead, more injured, but only a handful of the dead are British.

    Re: At least 27 killed in Tunisian beach attack.

    If any of the victims were foreigners I am surprised there were still tourists coming over there. There was a previous attack in the museums over there if I recall and tourists were still going there?

    He might not of needed an incredible amount of ammunition.

    The number of dead and the high fatality to wounded ratio indicates rapid fire, but also controlled and accurate fire (or perhaps just trapped victims?). Amateurs with an automatic weapon tend to "spray and pray" and then fumble with the reload. This terrorist does not seem like a "B" team amateur at all. My guess is that he practiced the attack again and again, maybe even with a simulated beach,.

    Another shooter was arrested, it wasn't a lone wolf.

    I live near Dearborn, Mi, which has a huge Arab population (maybe largest in US) and don't recall ever hearing backlash against them following a terror attack.
