Name the likely groups now. We'll see how close you were at a later time when someone or some group is identified.

Reports are that someone dressed as a policeman is randomly shooting people just outside of Oslo right now.

Norway is taking action against a radical Islamic cleric and is involved in the Afghan war. They also reprinted the infamous Mohammed cartoons. So its not a stretch that a radical Muslim extremist is behind the attacks. BTW, I was in Oslo on business just 2 months ago. I was working in the suburbs, but I did stroll around downtown and I recognize the street from the photos.

So why has yet another western country openly welcomed an immigrant group that ostensibly is incompatible with its long established cultural values? It's a recipe for instability.

That's crazy! I wonder what we'll see leading up to the anniversary of Sept 11.

BBC is saying there is a connection to Islamic radicals, and that the man, dressed as a police officer, that was shooting at the labour party youth camp, is connected to the bombing in Oslo. The guy that was shooting youth in the head at the camp said that he was a security officer checking on things after the Oslo bombing.

The youth that were shot in the head at the camp were considered to be the political leaders of tomorrow ... unknown number of casualties there. Imagine shooting children because they may go on to be political leaders!

I'm guessing the shooter snapped and was punishing the socialists (their kids) whose policies allowed the enemy into their midst.

Socialists here should take note. heh heh

Blond haired shooter, so the question is now whether it is connected to extreme Islamics ... but an Islamic group has claimed responsibility.

Or...unrelated and people are conflating the two because of coincidence...

hardly unrelated since the shooter cited the explosions as his reason for being there... perhaps a convenient diversion to his real purpose, you're suggesting?

I wonder if there will be a Nobel Prize for Terrorism?
