    I don't think you're clear on the "debate" part of Debate Politics, but no, I do not agree with your sentiment.

    just awful.

    R.I.P my thoughts are with your family.
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    Apparently we still don't know exactly why he did this. Was he working with a terrorist group who ordered the attack or was he on his own like the nut case like in AZ. I’m sure Germany has a few of them too. This one jihadi might be a dim bulb or completely nuts I agree that’s a reasonable possibility.

    But make no mistake, the jihadis we are fighting today are educated and have proven to be extremely intelligent and very resourceful.

    So this isn't terroism? It's a legitimate act of war?

    Oh boy...yet another person who don't know that in war people die. Somtimes non combatants. Theres no such thing as a sterile war.
    I'm sorry for posting that, and please don't read it as my attitude to these horrid shootings. I really regret those deaths, but am getting very frustrated at double standards operating here.

    I hope the families of the two soldiers can grieve and find some peace and support in the love of their friends and family, but I hope that too for the families of the Afghan boys who were killed by NATO helicopters for doing nothing more aggressive than collecting firewood.

    Without knowing many details, it's hard to say. What makes an attack a terrorist attack is not the act itself, it's the intent of the act. Terrorism is about committing a heinous crime with the intent of altering policy, typically political policy. The news is reporting that he was inspired after perusing radical Islamic websites. Sounds more like hate-fomented anger to draw in lackey's to participate in the Middle East's ongoing war with the West.

    Most of us grieve for the families of the US soldiers and especially the innocent Afghan children. What separates the two events is intent.

    The jihadi in Germany acted deliberately and intended to kill US soldiers.

    In Afghanistan, the US did not deliberately attack innocent children.

    I don't believe much in the 'news' right now about who he is and why he did it. We will have to wait and see who this guy turns out to be.

    This latest war is between Islamic jihadis and everyone else who doesn't practice their form of religion. It's not between the ME and the West in general.

    Jihadis target innocent civilians all over the world. Including other Muslims.

    BTW, if you're the same Sheik from AWE I'm glad to see you here.

    Whatever.

    Fair enough, it's radical Islam against the world. Still, I see that as an act of their ongoing war and not an act of terrorism.

    Likewise. Not sure how long I'm going to last though. I miss the craziness that permeated AWE. That was its charm and it's not tolerated here.
