I mean, really all they've done in the last 600-700 years is innovate the use of stirrups in battle, give out Nobel Prizes for a bunch of stuf (and nothing), and keep their gold away from the Nazis in WW2.  So why the did someone do THIS?!

last I heard (link in dutch/ google translate FTW), there are 87 deaths (bombing and shooting) and one arrest, Anders Behring Breivik, who is an extremist agaist multi-culturalism (or simplified, he's a white racist)

So, easy answer to "why Norway?" because Anders is from Norway.

I was born in Oslo. This bombing sucks.

At the same time, I hope it reminds Norwegians that bombings that happen elsewhere in the world - also suck.



The Norwegian left is cozy with terrorist organizations, from over-the-top legal defense of Al Qaida terrorists from Mid Asia, to seeking formal recognition of Hizbula, PLO, and Hamas in West Asia, Tamil Tigers in South Asia, and so on.

Terrorism sucks. Norway really needs to start becoming ethical when dealing with terrorist organizations.

It sucks, precisely, because it is the innocent who these terrorists kill. There is blood on the hands of Norwegian leftists - they are too happy to shake hands.
11 o clock special news about it

91 dead and counting
bombing: 7 dead
shooting: 84 dead, all between kids between 14 and 20

Apparently, the shooter was an anti-muslim christian fundamentalist who played violent video games.
dressed as a cop, called the kids to come closer and open fire.

I could go and blame christianity and/or people who are anti-muslim for this happening, but that be incredibly stupid. Like immediately blaming "islam" as a whole for a single whackjob.

My thoughts go to the victims and their families. Oh how great the world could be if people would learn to get along instead of blaming large groups of people for the mistakes of small groups of people Frown

I'm going to assume you're as filled with sorrow and anger as I am right now, and therefore will give you a pass on this. It was really a pretty effed up thing to say just now, though. Reminds me of a certain person who blamed 9/11 on "the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays, and the lesbians".

Gah! Let's not bring politics into this thread.

I'm just stunned that anyone, no matter how extreme their ideology, could get to the point where shooting a bunch of kids seemed like a good and noble act. I don't buy that he's "just a nutter". That's a cop-out.

I can't even articulate what I'm feeling right now.

I actually found myself reconsidering my position on the death penalty when I first heard about this. Then I decided that death would be too good for him.

So many children!

For some reason, it's the attack on the youths that seems the worst to me. I mean, bombing a government building is reprehensible enough as it is, but specifically targeting kids as young as 14, by posing as a police officer to gain their trust and make them come closer, is too cold and calculating for words. That 15 year old telling how she thought she was safe when she saw a police officer, until he started gunning people down, is just heartbreaking

...one arrest, Anders Behring Breivik, who is an extremist agaist multi-culturalism (or simplified, he's a white racist)


Yeah, I like how the Huffington Post article I just read about it made a point of describing him as a "blond-haired, blue-eyed Norwegian".  So what?  If he's a neo-Nazi, which nothing I've seen so far points to (other than being "right-leaning"), that might matter.  If he's not, who cares?  I've met plenty of racists in my time, and very few of them looked like "Aryans".

Seriously, no one could tell that that was a joke?!  I figured it was outlandish enough to not be believable.

Was the guy religious?

Religious extremism is the same the world over, no matter the religion.  If this guy was one, he has more in common with the Muslim extremists that he deplores than he will ever admit.

Less we forget? He might not be a Nazi, but when dealing with racism, talking or aluding to past ideologies that are still popular in some circles, to remind people of past mistakes, might not be  a bad idea.


So we're going to describe every white person as hating black people?  Every Jew as being personally responsible for the death of Jesus?  Or every French person as being an arrogant wuss?

That's maybe the dumbest thing I've seen come out of anyone's keyboard on the whole of the intrawebz.

I mean, if you're getting results like that with 16 starting Strength, maybe you can lower it to 14, and free up four points to spend somewhere else - perhaps back into Charisma, giving you some oomph for Intimidating Rage or Imperious Command if you want. You can continue to tune this until it deals "enough" damage - and that "enough" does not need to be "100%". It could easily be, say, 80% (leaving the rest to the team), if your DM is the sort who would ban one-hit killers.

The article at least made a bit of sense. 90% of those that responded to it should be shot in the face.

Looks like the PVV will be getting their way. As much as I don't like forced immigration, it seems that both the native dutchies and the imported ones are both too dumb to get along, so I can see why it's happening.

It does appear that it might be an independent nutter, not what I initially assumed. 


Assuming you meant muslim, see above. Otherwise, yeah.

Do you do any research, before you link to articles from loomwatch.com?

last I heard (link in dutch/ google translate FTW), there are 87 deaths (bombing and shooting) and one arrest, Anders Behring Breivik, who is an extremist agaist multi-culturalism (or simplified, he's a white racist)

So, easy answer to "why Norway?" because Anders is from Norway.


This was my assumption: homegrown terrorist with a beef against his own government. I assumed it would be anti-socialists, but racists it is.

In the desert
I saw a creature, naked, bestial,
who, squatting upon the ground,
held his heart in his hands, and ate of it.
I said, "is it good, friend?"
"It is bitter – bitter," he answered;
"but I like it,
"beacuase it is bitter,
"and because it is my heart."

Well this really sucks for Norway, but I do hope it serves as a wakeup call for them. Unfortunately that doesn't help anyone that was already injured or killed by these attacks.

Why must you be a racist if you are against multicultralism?
Multicultralism is a term that is thrown around alot, are you sure your idea of what it is, is the same as everyone elses?

Signature in a box
For years, I've lived a double life. In the day, I do my job - I ride the bus, roll up my sleeves with the hoi-polloi. But at night, I live a life of exhilaration, of missed heartbeats and adrenalin. And, if the truth be known a life of dubious virtue. I won't deny it - I've been engaged in violence, even indulged in it. I've maimed and killed adversaries, and not merely in self-defence. I've exhibited disregard for life, limb and property, and savoured every moment. You may not think it, to look of me but I have commanded armies, and conquered worlds. And though in achieving these things I've set morality aside, I have no regrets. For though I've led a double life, at least I can say - I've lived.

Wake up call to what? The dangers of religious Fundamentalists?




Otherwise you're violating the CoC by offending someone's religion. 

And I believe he meant "The dangers of lax security and terrorism in general, both internal and external".

Wake up call to what? The dangers of Christian Fundamentalists?


Yes. A lot of governments, including my own, tend to overlook potential threats, especially with so much media focused on Muslims, people tend to forget that they don't have a monopoly on terrorism. I suppose I should really say a wake up call for everyone, since a lot of other countries need a reminder of that.
CoC-Watcher of the House of Trolls
Meh. At some point people will have to understand that all security system is human made, thus imperfect.


Quite true. But some people think that if a security system isn't perfect, it should be scrapped altogether. As if preventing some attacks isn't better than preventing none.

Unless people want Big Brother to watch them (and sometimes I think people do).


You're probably right on that. At least, they think they want Big Brother to watch them, but I bet most such people underestimate how oppressive that would become and how many little things they do and don't give a second thought to (like leaving an empty soda bottle in the parking lot when they drive off) would also be caught that way.

From priliminary reports, the guy worked alone. Difficult to predict someone will go on a killing spread. Ok, he did post some stuff on the internet. But if police had to check everyone who hated the government or other races that posted on the internet, well I'd tell them to start with OTT.


Lol. Yeah, it's hardest to predict the guys that worked alone, but not always impossible. Of course, we won't know until later when more details come out as to whether or not it was reasonable for them to predict this particular incident. However, even incidents that couldn't have been predicted can serve as an impetus to become better about finding the ones that can be.
CoC-Watcher of the House of Trolls
I sort of agree with that, but I personally think everyone should value 4th of July limitations more


Meh, interesting link but it ignores that a lot of ones with higher death rates are also in the control of the person. I don't stress over fireworks because I understand them. I sometimes do stupid **** with them, but if I screw that up it will be my fault. On the other hand, a terrorist attack is not an accident, it's a deliberate action and it's one that is mostly out of my control (unless I happen to somehow have any advance warning of the attack). Likewise, a shark could come out of nowhere in the water and bite me. I know where the cows are; I've never had one sneak up on me. I might fall down the stairs, but unless someone pushes me I have more control than over elevator mechanisms I can't even see.

Has anyone actually advocated that?

There is blood on the hands of Norwegian leftists


I'm going to assume you're as filled with sorrow and anger as I am right now, and therefore will give you a pass on this. It was really a pretty effed up thing to say just now, though. Reminds me of a certain person who blamed 9/11 on "the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays, and the lesbians".

Gah! Let's not bring politics into this thread.

I'm just stunned that anyone, no matter how extreme their ideology, could get to the point where shooting a bunch of kids seemed like a good and noble act. I don't buy that he's "just a nutter". That's a cop-out.

I can't even articulate what I'm feeling right now.

I actually found myself reconsidering my position on the death penalty when I first heard about this. Then I decided that death would be too good for him.

So many children!



Of course, I am angry at the murderer.

My comment has nothing to with politics. It has to do with appallment at terrorists who literally get away with murder, just because they murder in the name of whatever ideology.

Before this massacre, I was already angry with certain Norwegian politicians who support terrorists. I would be just as angry at Norwegian politicians who support this terrorist.

Norway must stop supporting terrorist organizations!
