Norway

My deepest sympathies to our Norwegian friends.
Truly a despicable act perpetrated by cowards against peaceful free-minded people.
Our thoughts are with you.

Re: Norway

It's all over most newspapers/TV stations (major ones).

It's strange. What's even more strange is that the one they arrested is a norwegian. Even though AQ accepted responsibility (twitter tweet) it is most likely the same guy (or group) that was responsible for both attacks. It's insane. People already know who it is. His Facebook page was created less than a week ago, no friends, but some pictures. Almost what you would expect a martyr would leave behind so he could be remembered...

The worst must be all the children that got attacked at the summer camp. Madness...

I embrace the sympathy. I'm sure we'll make it through together. It could have been many more casualties, although the total may still rise due to many injured people and they are searching the waters close to the island. A sad day.

Re: Norway

I hope Death-By-GString is OK! He's from Norway and I was working a deal with him, but lost contact yesterday...

Re: Norway

Yeah its horrible news..
I have no respect for terrorists, and none for their causes. Its the worst possible way to make a point for your cause whatever it may be. Death of innocent people is not making a point its pure evil and murder. Those involved should be treated as the worst kind of criminals..

Hope Death by G String is ok

Re: Norway

When anyone attacks innocent people, women and children, nothing they could say beyond that could ever find validity.
Al Qaeda is the worst kind of cowardly scum ever to set foot on this planet.

Very, very sad. I feel that we have yet to hear the extent of it.

Re: Norway

91 people died vs AlaskaBat losing out on a deal... It speaks for itself. Enough about that, I'm sure you can use the search function to find the posts from 9.11, or even make a PM with the overly amusing "jokes".

Death toll so far upped to 91, and they expect it to rise. Youths from all across the country attended the camp, so it's fair to say all of Norway is affected.

There are crazy people everywhere.
Soon there'll be 10 billion humans.
Then 15.....20 billion.
Things will get darker and darker and..............
