I'm sure if you were to guess, you'd be correct.

There are 7 billion people in the World. If gunmen started killing 2 people per day in cafes how long do you think it would take to kill all 7 billion people?

I'm actually more amazed by how many people wake up every morning.

The big question I have is Were the victims/the cafe a specific target or is it a random attack where these shooters simply wanted to inflict bodily harm on anyone?

And if it is random, why this cafe specifically? Easy getaway? Hmmm..

Here is a more recent piece of information:


Investigations are still ongoing but a police officer told The Associated Press: "This is a local incident. It has nothing to do with Islamists or terrorism."

He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly.

Who will give me odds against this being carried out by adherents to a belief that has brought so many other things to civilization?

It is not just this particular thing... its looking at the boers being evicted from family farms, axe wielding nut job dusseldorf... "protesters" beating up and old men and women in Berkley... ISIS... various attempts at genocide in various parts of the globe... certain religious countries pushing human trafficking.. and on and on...

ETA: back in the early to mid '90s people were actually talking about world peace in our lifetimes... so yea seeing war spreading to every corner of the globe (no america is not responsible for every ill going on in the world) is extremely disheartening for me.

Wonder whats going to happen over there?
Nasty situation developing, perhaps the brits will step in.
S. Africa no longer has nukes, but they kept the plutonium they took out of the devices.

You forgot N. Korea on your list, I expect that situation to blow up shortly, literally.

Hmmm, an anonymous police officer reveals anonymously to the Associated Press, "Nothing to see here, look over there!"

IMO It remains to be seen till further details emerge..

I am honestly not concerned about North Korea... if they get to rabid china will suicide the fat troll if for no other reason than to not give the west an excuse to go military on them and end up with western soldiers just across the river from china.

more concerned about South korea... I really hope they have a good peaceful transition of power.

Thats it.. pick a fight with a country whose military stood toe to toe with the Nazis and got them to back down all the while the pope was behind them sending out broadcasts to resist Nazi'ism.

Kicking ass and protecting popes / European courts since the 1500's.

If N. Korea is going to be stupid I would wager it would be during a political crisis in S. Korea. As for China they already stated they would be open to a unified Korea under Seoul provided American forces were not permitted above the current DMZ.

Jim Fat the 3rd is running out of time.

He will be taken out by China.
Taken you by the US / allies in the region.
Taken out by one of his own guards.

This sounds like the same tripe you were peddling in the axe man thread and when it didn't turn out to be a Muslim you tucked your tail between your legs and found a new thread to troll huh...

Maybe before you push whatever idea you need to push, at least wait until you hear the word 'allah akbar' were screamed before the purp opened fire.

Nice try though

I'm sure they were probably white christians....

Definitely not Muslims...
In case y'all don't know, Islam is the religion of peace...
All of their crimes had nothing to do with the peaceful ethos of Islamism:

During the last 12 months, there were 2476 Islamic attacks in 59 countries, in which 21239 people were killed and 26678 injured.

Links to the drug world? They don't change the ownership on a regular basis, do they? Can't be related then.

Cultural diversity my ass. Did you even bother to read the article? Your country actually isn't enriched with drugs you say? Fear and Hating in New Zealand, there's another Star for you. Conquer on!
