    Default Do you think Europe will have more major problems this summer?

    I think we will see the following
    1. Continued attacks and rapes of women.
    2. Random shooting and car/truck attacks.
    3. Bombings.
    4. Protests that will turn into riots.

    But I also think the native Europeans will fight back and it will not be pretty.


    Just for reference from last summer.

    1, 2 and 4 sound like business as usual pretty much all over the US. Throw in the occasionional McVeigh or Shoebomber, and 3 isnt without precedent either.
    1 and 4 aren't unheard of in most places that are otherwise reasonably civilised.
    2 and 3 are daily occurrences throughout large parts of the middle east and Africa.
    So what is your point - why single out Europe?

    Summer heat in Europe and a bunch of young unemployed sharia seekers - what could go wrong?

    summer heat does seem to make a difference
    The doctrine of nonresistance against arbitrary power, and oppression, is absurd, slavish, and destructive of the good and happiness of mankind.
    Personal failures are too important to be trusted to others.

    Read them, very similar. Both are health and safety rules for tribal cultures.

    The rules of this game:
    Only violence by Muslims counts.
    When it's violence by a Muslim refugee, it's worth double points.
    If ISIS claims it, double the points again.

    Violence of any kind is bad. But for some people violence by "outsiders" and "the other" seems to to be particularly vivid and frightening psychologically, despite the statistical facts. Seems to trigger the human tendency for tribalism.

    I'm glad police and security professionals pay appropriate attention to this, but when I think of the safety of my family here and in Europe, radical Islam inspired violence is very low on the list. I'm much more worried about drunk drivers, for example.

    Chris - no one drinks with the intention of getting behind the wheel and taking out as people as they can. Muzzie terrorists do.
    And until the asylum seekers figure out what assimilation means then I only see things getting worse for Europe.

    How big is the problem?

    • In 2014, 9,967 people were killed in alcohol-impaired driving crashes, accounting for nearly one-third (31%) of all traffic-related deaths in the United States.1
    • Of the 1,070 traffic deaths among children ages 0 to 14 years in 2014, 209 (19%) involved an alcohol-impaired driver.1
    • Of the 209 child passengers ages 14 and younger who died in alcohol-impaired driving crashes in 2014, over half (116) were riding in the vehicle with the alcohol-impaired driver.1
    https://www.cdc.gov/motorvehiclesafe...factsheet.html

    This https://www.start.umd.edu/pubs/START...et_Oct2015.pdf lists 19 attacks, 18 fatalities in the US in 2014.

    So your point seems to be a tad pointless. If you had one.
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    Dorkism at its ignorant finest.

    Major Problems in Europe usually have seven figure death tolls these things merit hardly any attention.

    That may not be their intention but, they often still do it. Give them another beer, maybe they'd pass out before they get into a car.

    First, driving a truck into a crowd is an unspeakable crime. May they burn in hell, virgin-free.

    Second, different types of people commit horrible acts of volition. Do you really think "muzzle terrorists" [sic] commit most of the violent crimes in Europe? If so you're quite wrong.

    Third, have you been to France? I have, many times. I was there two weeks ago. My daughter lives there. Who do you think is responsible for the lack of assimilation in places like France. Hint: it ain't the refugees or migrants. It has always been so. If you doubt this, go read the history of Algeria or Ms. Le Pen's campaign materials.

    Liberal is not a meaningful adjective for brown shirt. Do you get your news from talk radio?
    lib·er·al
    ˈlib(ə)rəl/
    adjective
    1.
    open to new behavior or opinions and willing to discard traditional values.
    "they have more liberal views toward marriage and divorce than some people"
    2.
    (of education) concerned mainly with broadening a person's general knowledge and experience, rather than with technical or professional training.
    synonyms: wide-ranging, broad-based, general
    "a liberal education"
    noun
    1.
    a person of liberal views.

    brown shirt
    Soldiers in Hitler's storm trooper army, SA during the Nazi regime. They were called this because of the colored shirts they wore.
    To call someone a brown shirt is to call them a Nazi soldier, usually hinting that they oppose human rights or freedom. This is a very serious insult, and in forums is used to Flame someone.
    Hitler used many different forces to accomplish his goals when he rose to power. One of these forces were the SA, or Storm Troopers. The SA soldiers were called Brown Shirts.

    http://www.breitbart.com/2016-presid...caucus-speech/

    Talk radio host Glenn Beck, who was in Nevada campaigning on behalf of Ted Cruz at the caucus, denounced Donald Trump’s supporters as “brown shirts” after the GOP frontrunner upstaged Beck by making an impromptu appearance at the same caucus venue he was speaking at.
