    Norwegian man arrested in Paris for allegedly planning "major terrorist act", French officials say

    A Breivik copycat?
     
  2. I wonder how much Viking ancestry this chap will turn out to have?

    It appears he has gone berserk before:
    What is it with Western European legal systems and their abject failure to lock bad people up until they die?
     
  4. Wow, Burzum. That takes me a back a long, long time. I feel old.
     
  5. Paris is a target-rich environment for a man looking to hurt/kill/burn people of less Nordic or Anglo-saxon geneology than himself. The banlieux to the East are particularly fruitful. It says something that one starts to feel comparatively safe when one reaches the Serbian quarter.

    To be honest, I'm suprised that the French CT squad didn't let him demonstrate his point!

    Feeble screams from forests unknown indeed.
     
  8. I thought he was arrested in the Corrèze. Fief of Holland and Chirac.
     
  9. I blame it on the price on Noggie booze. £8 a pint would make anyone go a bit Tonto

  10. When you read the French news you learn that he was arrested "because he could have posed a threat" and was "potentially dangerous"....that definition could apply to several hundred thousand other people living in France starting by the very top of the political class.

  11. Happy old Varg singing a Ballad.
     
  12. I am sorry but a man who choses "Quisling" as his second name can't be all that bad....

    The FRA interior minister has acknowledged the fact that there was "no identified project, no target" and that his arrest was part of "harassment" operations.....he also had the balls to say that "the fact that his French wife had legally bought 4 .22lr carbines was taken as a proof that a terrorist action was possible"....
     
  13. Could have been worse, she could have bought 4 6mm Flobert (delamortkitu) carbines....
     
  14. So - a socialist spin operation to keep the Beurettes happy?
     
  15. have there been any rumours in the hexagon that the recent paris train crash was terrorism-related?
    or was it just a sad accident ...or that the weather improved and a few rail workers called in sick and safety levels dropped on the line?
