“What did Norway do to deserve such devastating attacks?”

Sorry, Doug Saunders, but that title represents utter stupidity.

Undoubtedly, the killer is seriously mentally unstable.

There is no protection from the occasional explosions of such people.

They are simply part of the human condition.

That way of thinking plays into the hands of all the lunatics out there looking for a political or mystical explanation of such matters, as it does to all the paranoid who would have us all live in fortresses with layer after layer of mindless security.

The guy responsible was a known right-wing, Nazi-like extremist.

He actually came to the island, armed to the teeth, dressed as a police officer.

Police have him in custody, an amazing feat when you consider what American police would have done, and they will learn what little there is to learn from this very sick man.

The horrific number of victims is owing to the nature of the island. The BBC has an aerial photo of the place. The victims were like fenced-in prey.

“Shame on us all for instinctively blaming Muslim terrorists for the tragedy. We have been too much brainwashed here in the West.”

It is absolutely the measure of how inundated we are with anti-Muslim propaganda that people would jump to this conclusion.

In fact, he is a Christian, a representative of the bloodiest religion in all of history.

How bloody has Christianity been?

“Why does the Nobel prize keep getting inserted into these articles about how peaceful Norway is?”

Yes indeed, and look at the last Nobel Peace Prize winner, Obama, a man who has now killed something on the order of 2500 innocent people in Pakistan with the modern version of Hitler’s “buzz bombs.”

All in the process of trying to murder people who are nothing but suspects, exactly the fashion of the old South American military death squads making people they don’t like disappear.

And who keeps a secret chain of CIA torture prisons going.

Who never closed Guantanamo.

Who keeps troops in Iraq.

Who keeps troops in Afghanistan.

And who is also secretly bombing in Yemen and Somalia.

Who never says a word about Israel’s horrors done to a captive people.

The Peace Prize has come to mean nothing.

Past recipients included an American war criminal, a man of great treachery with the blood of thousands on his hands, an old terrorist for the Israeli’s Irgun gang, and the father of Israel’s atomic bombs.

All of it no reflection on poor Norway, of course, but a definite indictment of trying to induce peace with prizes.
