So today, this happened!!!!

3 wounded as off-duty US servicemen subdue gunman on Paris-bound train

Off-duty members of the U.S. military subdued a gunman “known to intelligence services” after he opened fire, injuring three aboard on a high-speed train en route to Paris from Amsterdam Friday.

Three U.S. servicemen were on board the train and overpowered the man when the train stopped in the northern French city of Arras, 115 miles north of Paris, French media reported. Some reports said the men were U.S. Marines but that could not be confirmed. 

Passengers on the train subdued the gunman and prevented further carnage, said Christophe Piednoel, spokesman for national railway operator SNCF. The train was then diverted to Arras, where police arrested the suspect, Piednoel said on French television i-Tele.

The suspect was arrested after the train stopped in Arras, 115 miles north of Paris, Interior Ministry spokesman Pierre-Henri Brandet said on French television BFM. Passengers were evacuated and police have secured the area.

The man was armed with an automatic rifle and a knife, Piednoel said.

The suspect is a 26-year-old Moroccan, Alliance police union official Sliman Hamzi said on French television i-Tele.

The victims were identified as an American, a Briton and a Frenchman. Earlier reports said two American service members were among the injured. Two of the victims were in critical condition, according to a statement from the office of President Francois Hollande.

“The situation is under control, the travelers are safe. The train stopped and the emergency services are on site,” Thalys, the train operator, tweeted.

The attack took place while the train was passing through Belgium, according to a statement from Hollande’s office. The statement said he spoke with Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel, and the two leaders pledged to cooperate closely on the investigation.

Two of the victims were considered to be seriously injured, the French state rail company SNCF said, according to French wire service AFP. Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve is on his way to the scene. Passengers were evacuated and police have secured the area.

The motivation for the attack is unknown, officials said. AFP cited French officials saying the suspect is “known to intelligence services.”

Investigators from France’s special anti-terror police are leading the investigation, a spokeswoman for the Paris prosecutor’s office said.

A White House official told Fox News that President Obama was briefed on the incident Friday evening:

“The President’s thoughts and prayers are with all of the victims of this attack, and he wishes them speedy and full recoveries,” the official said.

“Echoing the statements of French authorities, the President expressed his profound gratitude for the courage and quick thinking of several passengers, including U.S. service members, who selflessly subdued the attacker. While the investigation into the attack is in its early stages, it is clear that their heroic actions may have prevented a far worse tragedy. We will remain in close contact with French authorities as the investigation proceeds.”

Apparently, the servicemen heard the noise of a gun being charged, and reacted.  Dirk has given us many links to the story here.

Yeh, we don’t know his “motivation”, but, he is a Moroccan, and, France’s special anti-terror police are leading the investigation

These are US heroes and should be praised and promoted in the military. …………. But, that’s not what we do for our heroes in the US military.  We degrade them and run them out.  Were it not for the publicity given by foreign nations, this is what would have befallen these heroes …….

Army kicking out decorated Green Beret who stood up for Afghan rape victim

The U.S. Army is kicking out a decorated Green Beret after an 11-year Special Forces career, after he got in trouble for shoving an Afghan police commander accused of raping a boy and beating up his mother when she reported the incident. 

The case of Sgt. 1st Class Charles Martland now has the attention of Congress, with Rep. Duncan Hunter writing to Defense Secretary Ash Carter challenging the decision. 

“I am once again dismayed by the Army’s actions in this case,” Hunter, R-Calif., wrote in a letter to Carter. 

Martland is described by many of his teammates as the finest soldier they have ever served alongside.

But his Army career changed course during his second deployment to Afghanistan in 2011. After learning an Afghan boy was raped and his mother beaten, Martland and his team leader confronted a local police commander they had trained, armed and paid with U.S. taxpayer dollars. When the man laughed off the incident, they physically confronted him.

They were punished by the Army at the time — but why exactly Martland is now being discharged is a matter of dispute. Army sources cited his accolades, including being named runner-up for 2014 Special Warfare Training Group Instructor of the Year from a pool of 400 senior leaders in Special Forces, in questioning the decision. 

As for the incident in 2011, Hunter told Carter: “To intervene was a moral decision, and SFC Martland and his Special Forces team felt they had no choice but to respond.” 

Casey, a former Green Beret teammate who would only use his first name since he is now a member of a federal counterterrorism team, told Fox News, “If I was a commander, I would have given him an award. They saved that kid’s life.”  ……

There’s more to read on that story at the link, but, this is where we’re at. 

U.S. military ‘hostile’ to Christians under Obama; morale, retention devastated

1 Former SEALs chaplain could be kicked out of Navy for …
God gets kicked out of the Air Force…and the NFL? – Allen B .
Pentagon May Court Martial Soldiers Who Share Christian …

Sure, outwardly, they’re going give those guys props.  But, if even one of them says “thank God!!!” … they’re gone.  Even if they’re not Christians, they had the Christian ethos.

Now, in this country, you can be of any religion you wish to be, or, have no religion at all.  In the military, you can be Christian (for now) or agnostic, or atheist, or Hindu, or Buddhist, or Muslim or a Satanist ….. 

Now, as I view history and present day events, there’s only been one who could properly constrain the lunatics such as the Moroccan on that train.  Sure, others have been able to somewhat confine them …. (it’s still a great question in Pakistan, Russia, India, mid-Africa …..)  There’s only been one ….. well, Israel, but, that’s a different story. 

Personally, and I believe I’m 100% correct in this notion, I want the people who are fighting our fights to believe in the Christian God.  Regardless of your belief, if the soldier goes into battle knowing that his reward is laid up in Glory, then, he tends to be braver, more fearless.  But, we’re running them out of our service.  Soon, I expect the US military to be every bit as effective as a UN peacekeeping force. 

That said, to the boys who did react and do, WELL DONE!!!!!  If I ever get a chance to meet you guys, the beers are on me!!! 

Oh, yeh, how are we doing back home in support of our warriors?

    • DirkH says:

      Thanks, Me. Well it’s like you get a free spotify account, you gotta have it no matter what’s in the new “privacy” agreement because it’s so good. I think it’s safe to say , Kerry’s just a puppet for the cameras. Like Obama, even though some keep disagreeing with me there.

      • Me says:

        Thanks Dirk, but I’m not in a very trust worthy mood. Ir seems no matter where you turn there is a spin on BS!

        • DirkH says:

          Not you, I mean somebody else.

        • Me says:

          Yeah and I am yet here again! So I armored up, not the biblee way but the opposite, the truth way! Go and see the the ahteist experience. I thought I was an Agnostic by definition of someone, but I guess Mr RTF may have been right in his bullish ways. I have never look into it much untill they went full retard. Then that had me really looking. And thanks to Al Gore for inventing the internet, And pastor lou for being a douche, I remember one out in BC that ended up to be on the FBI’s 10 most wanted! Amazing! right ?

        • Me says:

          Here is a sample of that! Check it out!

        • DirkH says:

          Well the still of the video shows the guy on the left has a model of the Flying Spaghetti Monster in front of him.
          I know the level of arguments from the FSM people. The German Pirate Party was all into FSM, and into socialism.
          So thanks but no thanks. You have nothing.

        • DirkH says:

          To be specific, Atheists believe that humans are soulless walking lumps of meat. Thus they have no basis on which they can found natural rights. Thus, atheists may at any moment in time decide that it is opportune to slaughter this or that group of people.

          Don’t pretend to me that you as an atheist have any morals, you cannot have morals because you have no basis to found them on. Your morals are therefore an arbitrary momentary construct that you will shift and reconstruct at a moments notice the way you like them.

          Currently the atheists have pretend-Christian morals – to continue infiltrating and taking over society. How long until they switch to different morals? Have already switched, when we talk about the power structure.

          “To be specific:…”

          I wonder, speaking generally, are you doing good things because you fear eternal punishment, or because you think this is right? Do you need somebody to tell you what is good and what is wrong?

          (Now I put this addressed directly to “you”, but I mean it more generally)
          I would think that one is the sum of all deeds in his life. As you can look now at Mars and see what people did some 20 minutes ago, you could also be on Mars and look what one did here on Earth some 20 minutes ago.
          The info is there.
          If you go further away, you could see further away in the past. Somehow the universe seems to be like a hologram that saves everything that has happened.
          In this way you live forever, as everything that you did is saved, it is there.

          To answer your rant against atheists, I would think that atheists or not, people need to behave to be in acceptance with their own conscience.
          Atheists or religious, a bad man will do bad deeds as they can find an excuse within their credo:
          “It was needed to destroy the village in order to save the village” as example.
          But the very fact that they need to find an excuse shows that they are not feeling good, and in the end what they did is there in their past. It does not matter how they try to spin it or present it, reality is only one, it is not relative, it is there, saved as they did it.

          So I think that atheists too can have a morale, as much as religious persons.

        • DirkH says:

          A moral is either based on something or it is not. If I accept that humans have souls and are different in this regard from rocks, animals, plants, then I have to accept that they have natural god-given rights. Notice the words.

          If I am convinced that consciousness is an illusion and humans are lumps of meat just like the frozen pieces of meat in the supermarket, only a little warmer and still walking around, I can make up any “morals” I need.

          And that is what atheists believe: They believe humans have no soul.

          If you are an atheist who believes that humans have souls, then you are a funny breed of atheist.
          Notice that an atheist is not a pantheist. An atheist is one who rejects any notion of spirituality.
          An atheist who says he respects his fellow human beings is one who just arbitrarily decided so. Hey good, that makes you an atheist who is currently harmless!

        • DirkH says:

          You mentioned “conscience”. As the conscience of an atheist is not his soul, for he has none in his belief, his conscience can only be some brain centre that has come about through an accident in evolution. As the atheist ponders the complete arbitrariness of the existence of this brain centre marked “conscience”, he may decide that he can just as well ignore it. Hey kill someone, get bad dreams afterwards? Hey who cares, just another evolutionary construction deficit of the brain, we’ll get over it.

          But, says the atheist, my decisions must be based on logic and it would be unlogical to kill someone because I don’t want to be killed either. That. Is. NOT. a logical statement! You failed to understand LOGIC! Take a COURSE!

        • DirkH says:

          “I would think that one is the sum of all deeds in his life. As you can look now at Mars and see what people did some 20 minutes ago, you could also be on Mars and look what one did here on Earth some 20 minutes ago.
          The info is there.”

          Kill someone in a closed room. The guy on Mars can’t see it. The universe hasn’t recorded it. The light cone is 5 meters across. The timeline never crosses.

        • DirkH says:

          “I would think that one is the sum of all deeds in his life.”

          That is a SPIRITUAL believe, not a materialist one.

        • Lars P. says:

          “then I have to accept that they have natural god-given rights. Notice the words.”
          god-given rights. I notice the words…
          btw, do you believe there is extra terrestrial life, or you think we are alone in the universe? Or do they also have god-given rights?

          “If I accept that humans have souls and are different in this regard from rocks, animals, plants,”
          rocks, animals and plants?
          Really so different? Really plants and animals and rocks are alike? Have you ever had a pet?

          “Kill someone in a closed room. The guy on Mars can’t see it. The universe hasn’t recorded it.”
          Neutrinos see it, the universe has recorded it. What do we know about the universe? Too little.

          But I digress. You can keep your god-given rights my friend. And of course if you do bad it is the devil who pushed you do it, it is not you, or else it was your god-given right to do it.

          “That is a SPIRITUAL believe, not a materialist one.”
          It is not a believe. It is a fact. Try to think at yourself as a 4 dimensional being. Time in the past is frozen, what you did is there, like a crystal grown over. That is very material.

    Now German hatemedia (Spiegel for instance) say ” clues for a terrorist background are becoming stronger”.
    Ya don’t say.

      Protect your borders, stop the bleeding. If those leaving their oppressive countries don’t want to follow the laws of the countries they are moving to then send them back.

  6. Lars P. says:

    Did he fire or not, am a bit confused, here there is no mention of any bullets fired, it looks like they were lucky as his weapon was jammed:

    http://www.foxnews.com/world/2015/08/23/3-americans-recount-how-subdued-paris-train-gunman/

    “One of his friends “just hit me on the shoulder and said ‘Let’s go,'” before moving in to tackle the gunman.
    He said he turned around and saw a man holding an assault rifle and that it “looked like it was jammed and it wasn’t working.””

    • DirkH says:

      As far as I found out, he fired one shot, then the AK jammed and he didn’t know how to clear it – and the magazine had fallen out.
