It happened again: on a train filled with cheese eating surrender monkeys hurtling through the Belgian countryside towards Paris, the Americans came to the rescue:
Crew on Paris-bound train barricaded themselves in their staffroom and locked the door as Kalashnikov-wielding terrorist went on the rampage leaving PASSENGERS to take him down.
And, as usual, the passengers were 3 Americans and a Brit. When an Islamic terrorist (Can I say that? The French called for caution before jumping to conclusions.) opened fire with an AK-47 (wait, youre not allowed to have an assault rifle in France!) he was rushed and taken down by Americans Spencer Stone (U.S. Air Force) and Alek Skarlatos (Oregon National Guard) and subdued with the help of California student Anthony Sadler, and British national Chris Norman.
French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve commended the Americans who neutralize(d) this extremely violent passenger, praising them for their great bravery and saying that without their sang-froid we could have been confronted with a terrible tragedy.
Not exactly like it was the first time though, eh boys?
The Normandy American Cemetery, overlooking Omaha Beach and the English Channel. It holds the graves of more than 9,300 U.S. servicemen who died in the D-Day invasion.
Like it or not world, you still need us.

You know, the guy could have just been upset over ticket prices!
We are all jaded by American authorities and media who rule out/deny links to terrorism in obvious cases, but the French may actually have a good reason for doing so.
French law does have something roughly analogous to our Miranda rights except in the cases of suspected terrorism and narcotrafficking. In those cases the accused has no right to counsel for the first 72 hours. By delaying the charges that period can be extended giving intelligence and law enforcement authorities to look for co-conspirators, ring activities etc. So yes, it may seem obvious to the world at large that this was an act of terrorism, and it may reinforce the Inspector Clouseau stereotype of French authorities to delay the naming of such, but due to the peculiarities of French law, there may be valid reasons for doing so.
I hope that’s a FUN 72 hours for our muzzie buddy.
An interesting theme that is reinforced from this incident is that Americans are all gun nuts and very dangerous. Many people in the world assume that all Americans are armed, all the time.
The fact that these brave American young men were *not* armed will not matter on whit. What will stick is “Americans take out terrorist with an AK47”.
It is a very good reputation for Americans to have. I have worked to help enhance the image.
Two different totally independent stories of two separate totally unrelated incidents of mulsims shooting up train mangled together.
“on whit” should be “one whit”
OK, that makes some sort of sense.
Why do WE do it?
Moroccan....Morocco is 99.9% Muzzie.
Poor terrorist didn’t even have time to yell Allah Akbar before he was neutralized by a couple of brave American military types.
Because after an incident or attack, our media and fedguv need the time to find any possible links to the tea party, talk radio or the Confederate battle flag.
Because the US has a ton of money tied up in foreign business - and we are a Saudi proxy in many respects. MHO
WATCH heroic U.S. National Guardsman Alek Skarlatos talk about French terrorist attack
The people of France know it was terrorism regardless of what their gov’t says.
...(wait, youre not allowed to have an assault rifle in France!)...
Liberals here just make things that they have already made “illegal” more illegal by passing more laws that are ignored.
"In July of this year, France launched Operation Barkhane, an ambitious counterterrorism initiative spread across five countries in Africa's Sahel and Sahara regions. The mission seeks to build upon the success of the French military intervention that drove al Qaeda-linked jihadi militants from northern Mali in 2013, and comes at a time when the US is expanding its own counterterrorism operations on the continent, setting the stage for what some analysts consider a burgeoning Franco-American alliance in Africa."
Seems the French have an affinity to using electric shock rather than water boarding.
The first report I heard included the information about the CORPSE having been in the possession of the Gun and a “knife”
I suspect it was his beheading knife
When the last war you've won had Napoleon at the helm, its going to take a while to change public opinion...
