    I agree. Terrorism has a point, something it wants to accomplish. It's meant to instill terror in a population. Violence can only do that when there's a threat of continued violence.

    Of course, that was a long, long time ago.

    How can we tie this into a xenophobic narrative?
    Well, if we can arrest a drunk ISIS agent who illegally crossed our southern border, carrying a crate of machetes, we could make a case.
    It would help if he has the Ebola virus......and maybe owns a pit bull.....and commits a drive-by beheading.....

    First, known terrorists as you suggest, committing the act in front of a camera to be used as a propaganda tool later, to scare an entire population, is classic terrorism. A wack job getting fired and killing an employee/s has always been workplace violence.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    First of all, your addressing a poster who identifies himself as slightly conservative and calling him a lib, furthermore, this issue isn't political. Thirdly, Christians commit crimes readily, including murder, and their religion doesn't get questioned as motive. Are you aware of the numbers of workplace violence in America? Cutting someone's head off is a-typical, but not anymore thorough then blowing there brains out with a 9mm.

    Yes you are right. He was suspended and escorted to parking lot.He went home,got a knife and came back.

    CNN.com - Transcripts
    Earlier in the day last Thursday, the H.R. Department at Vaughan Foods received complaints against Mr. Nolan. He was called in and suspended and escorted to the parking lot. He then left Vaughan Foods where he went home, retrieve a knife and returned to Vaughan Foods to get revenge on certain people that he felt responsible for getting him suspended and who had wronged him. Upon entering the building he came across.
    I also heard he is a convert to Islam. Is that inaccurate?
    Not relevant.

    Is beheading a victim in any way unusual?
    Murdering someone is unusual.

    Do you not think it appropriate to investigate this incident thoroughly? Has the investigation been completed?
    Aren't you one of those people going but he is a muslim and he beheaded someone so he must be a terrorist


    Why are libs so reluctant to consider the possibility that this assailant might be a jihadi?
    It isn't just libs who doubt that this incident was a terrorist attack. Just because a Muslim guy goes postal doesn't make it a terrorist attack.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Apparently some of the talk show pundits seem to think getting fired and later returning to your former place of employment to kill your former co-workers is terrorism. Most people would call that going postal or work place violence, not terrorist. Getting pissed off because you lost your job as far as I know are not one of the reasons a terrorist murders someone.
    This depends on why the person was fired in the first place.

    To take it a little further, the man went to a different part of the building and found 2 women that had nothing to do with what happened to him.

    If he had gone postal, as some say here, why didn't he do it to the people that were directly involved in what happened to him?
