From what I heard lastnight...it should also be noted that not only were this folks unarmed service members but these were unarmed USAF law enforcement personnel enroute to a deployment & tasked with force protection duties.

Authorities in Europe are calling the shooting at a Frankfurt, Germany, airport that claimed the lives of two U.S. servicemen an act of Islamic terrorism, though U.S. investigators said it is too soon to tell.
Why is this so hard to say?

The U.S. has launched an FBI-led investigation into the shooting and officials told ABC News it is too soon to determine whether the attack was an act of terror and if the suspect acted alone.
However, a senior U.S. intelligence official told ABC News the attack was likely terror-related.

You know I could have sworn when I first heard of this that it was one of those "Christian Fundamentalists" that are always committing these things.

Last time I was in that airport (1983-4?), I noted that the Polizei tend to patrol in teams of two with one member carrying an Uzi. And there are a lot of them.
This probably is why the response was so quick.

Depends on who you ask around here. :lol:

Of course our .gov is p**sy-footing around with calling it an act of terrorism. Let's see... obviously radical muslim kills folks while screaming allahu akhbar which obviously implies a religious motive. It's one person shooting into a crowd and he knows darn good and well that he will not just commit the act and get away, so the act is a method of spreading fear amongst a populace; ie: terrorism.
