Yeah you're probably right.
I just wonder why religion only comes into it when It's a Muslim Fundamentalist..
Never when anyone else kills.
Derek Bird the Baptist killer.... NOPE... just a nutty old taxi driver.
It always has to be a religious angle when someone is middle eastern, that's all I'm saying.
The US soldier who killed those kids and women in Afghanistan wasn't portrayed as a crazed Christian Fundamentalist.. but had it been the other way around, it would have been
We're so used to it and the media has done it for so long... that now people were already saying it was a Muslim before anyone had even thought of a suspect.
That, to me, is pretty dangerous.... and scaryedit on 22/3/12 by blupblup because: (no reason given)

MI5 has estimated that up to 4,000 British Muslims had travelled to Pakistan and, before the fall of the Taliban, to Afghanistan for military training.
At least 70 Germans have undergone paramilitary training in Pakistan and Afghanistan, and about a third have returned to Germany.
USA: Bipartisan Policy Center Report on Assessing Threat of Radicalization and Domestic Terrorism
A key shift in the past couple of years is the increasingly prominent role in planning and operations that U.S. citizens and residents have played in the leadership of al-Qaeda and aligned groups, and the higher numbers of Americans attaching themselves to these groups.
Another development is the increasing diversification of the types of U.S.-based jihadist militants, and the groups with which those militants have affiliated. Indeed, these jihadists do not fit any particular ethnic, economic, educational, or social profile.

Typical ATS, screaming conspiracy and BS without availing themselves of all the facts first... The regiment that the soldiers were in has just come back from a tour of Afghan and has done several over the years. It is likely that the killer knows this and may well have had direct contact with them over there. Also, they are local to him. That is why that regiment was targeted Honestly, the standard of critical thinking has gone downhill round these parts, ironically while people think themselves "smarter" because they will call BS on pretty much anything. This is simply some Talib wannabe having his crack at the French, on his home turf, against a regiment that has done time on Afghan and the stock Jewish targets all Islamists go for.. Simples.. No conspiracy, false flag or Aliens here.
