A Quick Analysis of the Norway Bombings and Shootings

I am sure that at least a few of you have heard about the bombings in Oslo and the shootings at a youth Camp in Norway. While many seem to believe that it is Islamic terrorism related, I have my doubts.

Here is why-

1. Both categories of targets (government buildings and summer camp) had one common theme- possible presence of the Norwegian Prime Minister- Jens Stoltenberg.

The attackers did not go after commercial targets, touristy places, nightclubs, public transit or any other more typical targets. Does that not strike you as odd? If they just wanted to kill the maximum number of people in a spectacular manner, they could have done so much more easily and on a far larger scale.

They certainly did not lack explosives or weapons to kill many more.

2. Both categories of targets were linked to ruling Labour Party (Norway).

Islamic terrorists are not known for caring about party affiliations of the ‘infidels’ they kill. Domestic groups, on the other hand, are much more likely to worry about such factors. Why go after people of a very specific political affiliation?

3. The killings at the summer camp on the island are suggestive of people who could blend in the population.

Given that middle-eastern guys look somewhat different from you average Norwegian, the fact that the killer/killers could get on the island with police uniforms and blend in till they started shooting suggests that they were indigenous. Now you can certainly have a few converts to another religion, however the issues mentioned in 1. and 2. make that unlikely.

In my opinion, given the scale of the attacks and coordination it was closer to a coup rather than a classical terrorist attack.

    Since the two events are no coincidence, it’s obvious that it’s some sort of a coup d’etat.
    I don’t see where to fit Muslims into the picture. Plus, Muslims are more likely to align with the Labour Party because they mostly profit from its policies.

      I don’t know, but it seems that what the Muslims have started in Europe (although the Irish and the Basques have already done it) is being imitated by the Europeans now.

    My sympathies to the families of the victims and prayers for those who are injured! We are used to this kind of bombings and shootings that we called massacers which took place in our country Sri Lanka, at regular intervals untill the Tamil terrorists were defeated/wiped out. The countries like Norway, people in the labour party, Eric Solheim etc. gave safe passage to the terrorists who wanted to get out at the height of the war and funded the terrrorist too. I am sure the expertise to set up such a bomb would have come from a Tamil terrorist who is now living in Norway. The Tamil terrorists don’t know anything other than to wage war! So now the Norwegians and all those who sympathise with terrorist will be able to experience a little of the suffering that we had to endure for 30 years!

    AD analysis is spot on. [In the Netherlands we have a paper named AD, but it is more like FoxNews — clueless].

    Seeing the silly girls and boys all excited on American news channels with giddy chatter and tjilping away about Al-Qaeda, how they have recruited locals before, how there must be an organization behind this act — makes you realize how little real-world sense they have.

    The idea of of Al-Qaeda (the mythical “organization” of 372 Muslim fanatics in Waziristan threatening Western civilization since the fall of the iron curtain) having a specific beef with the Norwegian socialist party youth — that’s about as far out as you can get. Al-Qaeda in Yemen, in Libya, in Iraq, in the Phillipines, Indonesia, London, Madrid and now an island off Norway. Get a grip. If a hand full of guys is that good, we should recruit them to tutor the seals, the CIA, and the American military.
