Terrorist attacks around the world

From the CBC;

Lakdim was known to authorities for drug-dealing and other petty crimes, but had also been under surveillance by security services in 2016-2017 for links to the radical Salafist movement, Paris prosecutor Francois Molins said on Friday.

More criminal than religious, but this is no common criminal act.

Just think. If only France would have better gun control they wouldn't have mass shootings.

I think that if France had America's gun control, they would be in an all out war.

You find that funny? Please explain.


I find the labeling of "terrorist" or not to be funny. If the exact circumstance would have happened with Conditt and his name was Mohammed, would there be any doubt in anyone's mind that it was a terrorist act?

It seems to me if a brown person committs murder = a terrorist act
If a white person commits murder = mentally unstable

For Jag :biggrin:

You're assumption leans to racism. It is very common for people of a certain bias to label Caucasians as prejudicial. It seems to me that prejudicial statements such as yours are worthless. Just a lot of blah blah blah.
Not sure if you even read your link but it proves that your links were not terrorist attacks. I could go on and try and show you how wrong you are but my prejudice precludes me from wasting my time trying to explain something to those who cannot even see that their own link describing terrorism proves they do not understand.
Why use a big word when a diminutive one will suffice.

Nice conspiracy theory, but in terms of facts and truth, it's simply not true. Have you ever heard of Dylann Roof, Anders Breivik, or Timothy McVeigh?

Of course I've heard of them but why are you reinforcing my position :biggrin: . Dylann Roof and Timothy Mcveigh were charged with all sorts things but terrorism wasn't one of them. That's a fact.

Andes Breivik was diagnosed first as a schizophrenic during his trial but the public was outraged and wanted a trial so his diagnosis was changed. He was then deemed criminally sane and charged with terroism but imo, he was/is mentally ill, ironic!!

The terrorism charge didn't exist until 2003, and McVeigh was dead by then. By all accounts it was terrorism, however. Murder is far worse than terrorism, so generally the "terrorism" charge is what you give people who haven't killed anyone yet. I can't think of anyone -- Muslim or not -- who has been charged with terrorism in Canada after killing people. Can you?

You're the one that brought them up. What's your explanation for Roof?

btw, the Patriot Act came into being Oct. 2001.

What is going to reach these animals? Nothing works. Nothing. Killing people is what these psychopath Taliban excel at and nothing more.

This was posted in the Canada forum. Since it hasn't been released that it was a terrorist attack, you're jumping the gun. Could have been hit and run but he was caught.

*removed*

However, it may have to do with terrorism according to this link:
