    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
    Depends on where in the states. If it happened in say, Texas, the terrorist wouldn't be able to open his umbrella before getting shot

    Just horrific.

    This time a little closer to home only a matter of time before British forces members were targeted, will be like the days of the IRA.

    I was just watching that report Higgins, thank goodness they had a heads up before any damage was done.
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    You see a lot of that 'backlash', do you?

    I'd seriously doubt that. Texans are far too busy shooting each other with 64% of all their homicides involving use of a firearm

    You're forgetting China. The Chinese Muslim Ulighers went on their own killing spree:


    At least 18 people died after ethnic Uighurs attacked police with knives and bombs at a traffic checkpoint in China’s western Xinjiang region, Radio Free Asia reported on Wednesday.

    The attack occurred on Monday, the station said, in a district of the southern city of Kashgar where tensions between Muslim Uighurs who call the region home and the national majority Han Chinese have led to bloodshed in recent years.

    Obama is clearly excluding Muslim turf from 'civilized nations'. Perhaps someone should send him a link to Islam: The Politically Incorrect Truth to round out his education.
