Experts have now discussed how we in the future can prevent an attack like that which has hit Norway.

It should be harder to buy fertilizer and easier to detect radicalized individuals.

That was a few of the topics discussed Thursday at an EU meeting in Brussels.

The meeting was held in the wake of the two terrorist attacks that shook Norway Friday. Among the participants were anti-terrorism experts from seven of the 27 EU countries.

- The problem of terrorism committed by the "lone wolf" - people who are not having an apparent association with a terrorist organization - seems to require increased attention, was said in a press release from the EU.

The newest terrorist attack was done by the 32-year-old right-wing extremist Anders Behring Breivik. The attack costed a total of 76 people their lives. Breivik claims to stand for both attacks alone, and if that is the case, it was more or less impossible to prevent the attack, according to experts.

It is statistically a very rare event, said Tim Jones, who is adviser to the EU's top anti-terrorism coordinator Gilles de Kerchove.

But that something is difficult does not mean that you should not focus on it, he adds, referring to the need to increase efforts to find and stop the so-called "lone wolfs" in time.

The answer will have many layers. It can not be solved with a magic wand, says Tim Jones.

The many experts there where at Thursday's meeting did not agree on a concrete targets for the future, but exchanged ideas on what policy changes could alleviate the problem.

Among other things discussed is the new measures needed to improve the exchange of information among the countries involved - including an increased control of manure that can be used to make bombs - and a European network to prevent radicalization.

- We need to think about how we improve the situation permanently, we will now and again face the kind of phenomena, says an anonymous EU official to dpa.

Its because they want to hide the fact that he could, JUST COULD, have dirty ties with a certain "You know who" secret agency - just like Bin Laden did.

You know I wonder how much of this is just so they can begin heavily controlling the supply if potassium nitrate. I know where I live now even people who have bought it for years as fertilizer are now having background checks done and have cops hang out outside their place for days before they can buy it. I wonder if this might just be another way to gain control of the food supply.

Never let a good crisis go to waste!

Mumbai vs. Oslo

Just days before a barbarian (alone and belonging to no one, no group, just the twisted sickness of a legend in his own broken mind) murdered over seventy people in Norway, the city of Mumbai was attacked in a brutal jihad by Muslim extremists, again. Hear about that? Not so much.

But one cold-blooded killer who has been planning a slaughter in Norway (setting his plan in motion since before 9/11) has become the rallying cry of the dhimmedia in service to the most radical and extreme ideology on the face of the earth. Where is the same obsessive drive to determine the motivation and the manifesto behind the jihad? Where are the investigative reports on the imams and the mosques that teach, advance, and prescribe violence? Where is the Woodward and Bernstein team to investigate what motivated a Muslim to gun down U.S. soldiers in Arkansas? Where's the round-the-clock coverage of the Muslim Najibullah Zazi, who plotted to blow up the New York subway system with the help of his father and his imam on the anniversary of 9/11?

Where's the relentless outcry and hand-wringing over the ideology that attracts young Muslims in America to join Muslim armies in Somalia? Why are there no television specials on why Osama bin Laden quoted Allah and the Koran extensively? What manifesto incited four Muslims in a jihad plot to bomb New York City synagogues and shoot down military planes with stinger missiles? Where is the pained outcry over Fort Hood jihadi Major Nidal Malik Hasan and his PowerPoint presentation on Islam and the jihadic doctrine? What motivated a Pentagon attack suspect back in June (a Marine, no less) to plot to bomb the Department of Defense? Was it his religious Al Qaeda notebook? This same pious Muslim was found to be responsible for recent random shootings at military installations in and around Washington, D.C. Diane Sawyer, call your office.

I forgot to mention that I think, it is a totally waste of money to go into single man terroist control.

It will be nearly impossible to detect anything there matters. - The thing is that many terrorists is so good, that they infiltrate companies normally buying LOADS of fertalizer and therefore they will be undetectable.
