Re: Tragedy in Norway, dozens dead, including children, after two linked attacks in O

Thoughts go out to everyone in Norway, especially those that were involved and their family/friends.

Ugh, how awful. Hope we find out more soon about why this happened.

If I think of the most prominent attacks on US government buildings, at least, I think of 9/11, then before that, Oklahoma City, then before that, the Weather Underground. So I'm not sure any group is especially dangerous. Extremists of any stripe, religious, right, left, etc, will sometimes turn violent.

Not to mention that there are people today and have been for weeks now in Somalia dying of starvation and the coverage didn't get nearly enough attention as this unfortunate incident today. Of course, what happened today is a tragedy, but people dying in this world while there are plenty of food for everyone, in my view is maddening.

Re: Tragedy in Norway, dozens dead, including children, after two linked attacks in O

According to the latest reports at least 80 young people have been killed at Utøya. Eighty. Massacred by one man, apparently. On a lovely idyllic holiday island near my childhood home. This does shock and surprise me. I expected the death toll to rise, but not to this extent.

someone should tell them terrorists not to bomb more white people
How bout "at the same times," you stop at the acknowledgment of this tragedy and stuff your tedious (and tiresomely trite) political sermonizing?

Just horrible. Over 80 killed, between the ages of 14 and 18. By one man. Targeting children is just the lowest thing you can do.

I am very saddened by this tragic news.

And further my saddness by various people using this tragic news to promote their political agenda.

RIP for all those killed!

He sees these tragedies that happen in the ''western civilizations'' as a deserved fate. He thinks they demonstrate that the west is evil and the punishment is just.
Unfortunate that he had to voice his opinions here so soon.

Re: Tragedy in Norway, dozens dead, including children, after two linked attacks in O

Is there a bigger horror than to be stuck on a bloody deserted island with apparently zero police or security, and a madman with a gun? Fucking hell. My hearts are with those kids and their families.

Honest to God, we're talking about a camp for the youth of a political organization, I know this is ever-peaceful Norway, but there should have been (real) police forces on that island. 80 dead means this guy was shooting and verifying his killings for a long while.

So very sad. I feel for the families.

So it is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle.

Here is the man responsible.


On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
