A US Marine who foiled a terrorist attack on a French-bound train was shot in the neck while disarming the crazed gunman.
The marine, one of two unarmed servicemen, spotted the 26-year-old Moroccan acting suspiciously and heard him trying to arm his weapon in the toilet of the high speed train between Amsterdam and Paris.
The gunman got on the train in Brussels and attempted his attack soon after crossing the French border. The 26-year-old Moroccan national, who was known to security services, came out of the toilet brandishing the gun and opened fire. Fortunately, the Marines were nearby and overpowered him before he could massacre passengers.
The suspected terrorist had at least nine full magazines of ammunition holding almost 300 rounds. He was also carrying a knife.
Unfortunately, one of the Marines was shot although his injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

Our folks in uniform are awesome.
Damn proud of these brave men, and proud to have been a Marine today.
Contrast the gutsy, courageous action of our fine men in uniform, both here and at Chattanooga, with the mealy mouthed response of our “leaders” to acts of terror against us.
How long can the rank and file hold when the American people fail to give them leaders worthy of the courage and sacrifice they routinely exhibit when the chips are down?
Can’t wait to hear Susan Rice’s comment on this:
The terrorist’s actions were caused by a Youtube video.
Active Duty ping.
Semper Fi Marines!
LOVE this story. Hope the Marine gets well soon. The French can be weenies, but they will treat these guys like kings.
Semper Fi shipmates!
Prayers for the heroes.
“Unarmed hero US marine took bullet in the neck...”
Better than taking an arrow to the knee!
This gives you an idea of how the Marines took the jihadi down.

But remember, they’re not heroes. Donald Trump is the hero! [Heap of irony and sarcasm cousine there. I’m proud of those men.]
So in another story I read, the Americans heard an AK47 being loaded in the bathroom, and jumped him when he came out. May have been some disgusting ‘racial profiling’ (/sarcasm) going on as well. (I call it Situational Awareness)
Cuisine, even. ;-)
Awesome story-God Bless our brave military!
