France: 2 Americans subdue gunman on high-speed train

Recommended Posts

It's not clear.....Did the gunman just start shooting randomly, or did he attack the soldiers (and lose, haha som nom na)? That the soldiers were the ones injured suggests the latter.

Not enough info right now, but seems he was getting ready to start shooting and the soldiers stopped him, getting wounded in the process. The attacker had a kalashnikov rifle. I would guess that draws a bit of attention when displayed!

A Kalashnikov is the line of AK-47, AKM-47, AK-74 (not a typo) etc. rifles. These are Com-block rifles. Most of those guns are fully automatic, select fire "machine gun" rifles aka the AK-47 and AK-74. Common magazines hold 20 or 30 rounds although some hold more. Kalashnikov was the Russian man who invented the gun.

That's a nasty piece and there is no way it should get onto a train undetected if only the smallest amount of care was taken.

More of the bitter fruits of mass immigration from Muslim Countries. Wonderful presence of mind by the marines off duty, unarmed and in another Country. Had it happened on a U.S military base they might have faced charges, such is the world we live in today.

Your suggestion that it is OK to take a gun on a train to shoot soldiers is despicable.

Wow!!! Just WOW! Where do you draw that from???? Even with the most <deleted>-tinted glasses, it beggars belief that you can find any sort of suggestion in MY QUESTION about who the gunman attacked.

My apologies if that is not what you meant.

Apology accepted...as half-heartedly as it was offered. You still maintain the possibility that I made a comment about allowing guns on trains to shoot soldiers!

Incredible.

Incredible.

When someone sides with North Korea over some supposed U.S instigated provocation it's difficult to know where you draw the line - just saying.

There are no x-ray machines on trains in Europe (except one line). Probably not in the US either. I just did a few train trips and could have brought anything on I desired.

It will be interesting to get more info on this aborted terrorist attempt.

Unfortunately the government of the United States has pushed the multi-culturalism and mass immigration from the Islamic world and Africa that is ruining Europe and made this latest attack possible

Amerika ... the cause of all Eurolands problems ... That’s the best you got for the weekend? Might try, The Rothschild’s, Freemasons and toss in a little Illuminati. It’s just as vacant but as it plays on traditional forms of Euro ignorance and racism, it will play better. thumbsup.gif

Americans coming to the rescue of France again.

Yorktown 1776 the French did the same.

Unfortunately the government of the United States has pushed the multi-culturalism and mass immigration from the Islamic world and Africa that is ruining Europe and made this latest attack possible . The American government has continuously pushed for the inclusion of 90 million Muzz Turks in the EU and NATO bombers made the jihadist conquest of Kosovo a reality. There are many such examples. Of course neither the American or European people are in favor of this but we have an elite class which is. Obozo is now flooding the USA with Muzz immigrants as well. The "Camp of the Saints" is a reality in all of the Western world.

Semper Fi USMC for your herorism on this train. The French sites I am following all speak of your courage and of their gratitude; as well as their frustration with France's multicultural nightmare.

What a stretch to blame the US for the multicultural situation in the EU. Every sovereign country has the right to decide who it will or will not accept. One of the main groups who pushed for more positive attitudes toward immigrants was the UNHCR, which is centered in Geneva, Switzerland and is mostly dominated by Europeans and people from smaller countries. The UNHCR made significant efforts to get refugees resettled.

I think it is a bit of a stretch to insinuate that a Moroccan in Europe is somehow because of US immigration policies.

What a stretch to say I place all the blame on the American government for Europe's invasion by Muslims: I never said that. Yet they are clearly part of the problem and a little research into the organizations that bind the European and American political elite classes and the polices America has promoted with their money, media and military will demonstrate this. These elites are traitors to their own countries; both American and European . As I stated; the people in both America and Europe are in the majority opposed to this.

I share your Thanks with every man and woman who has had to courage to put on a uniform, regardless of which branch of the military, and by doing so, openly proclaim: "I am ready to defend my country, even if it means my own death."

Sounds like a Great Ending to an awful situation that was about to get much worse - but didn't.

Thanks to an alert French Actor who sounded the alarm and to two brave Marines - what could have been a massacre was turned into a short lived scary event with only some minor injuries.

I do not see how anyone can turn this event into anything else but a shining example of what good Samaritans can do when they step forward bravely into the fray ... Thanks much to the two Marines and the French actor ... Three Cheers gentleman and Hats off to you all...

Pic of the shooter. Looks like he got roughed up a bit:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3206426/U-S-Marines-armed-gunman-onboard-high-speed-train-Amsterdam-Paris.html

One Marine was shot in the neck but reports say it's not serious.

Good thing they recognized the sound of someone locking and loading, or were even there as it sounds like the shooter had nine-30 round mags:

"French police recovered at least nine full magazines of ammunition from the suspect's backpack, containing almost 300 rounds"

Roughed up? Oh my! The Hollande government may now charge the Marines with a " hate crime" ; especially if there were any culturally insensitive remarks made about his Muzz religion or ethnicity. Marine Le Pen for her part; has already thanked the Marines for their courage on her Facebook page. Perhaps better days are ahead for Europe?

It's difficult to say from the Daily Mail article,but it appears that the photo of the guy being carried off the train,which I think some are confusing with the gunman,who was 'a bit roughed up' was actually the wounded serviceman, sincea second photo of the guy carries the caption of 'one of the wounded was stretchered off'.

Anyway, I wish both the soldiers a speedy recovery.

It's interesting that the same article says that 'France was on High Alert following the Charly Hebdo attack'~ not sure what being on High Alert means if these maniacs can get a Kalashnikov and other weapons on a train.
