    Are we allowed to discuss his motivations yet?

    It seems obvious from his writings that he sees himself as some kind of martyr advocating for a revolution against his country because of his Islamophobic views. (Even though the population of Norway is only 3% Muslim).

    Many of his views are similar to views of posters here and I find that disturbing. Not that I think anyone here would go on a murderous rampage and kill innocent people, especially children.

    The guy is a fucking terrorist.

    What the hell.

    I am not sure there is anything very new in it but I have only read 29 of the 1587 pages. He claims to have given a copy to his 7000 facebook friends.

    and sad to say he is going to give what he believes is a reason tomorrow.

    Depends whether it's a discussion or a bunch of bullshit to accuse every Conservative of being a terrorist. In my experience of late on this board, the latter outweighs the former.

    People who use tragedies to accuse their political opponents of wrongdoing are mentally unstable individuals.

    You are absolutely right. I read the radical posts filled with hate, bigotry and propaganda and wonder if am reading the words of a future terrorist. Message boards, blogs, Twitter, Facebook and other outlets for free expression serve a very important purpose. They give an outlet for these lunatics to express themselves, to release a lot of emotions and hostility. As long as they are at the keyboards they aren't killing people.

    Flopper I have doubts on what you say. I am not trying to be nasty just genuine. This guy apparently spent 9 years preparing for this - that is the years from 23-32. During this time he was using the internet a great deal - so much so that he sent 7000 copies of his book to his internet friends before he went off on his murderous business on Friday. Now I have to imagine that he at least thought he would get their approval for what he did. Certainly in his case, far from getting things off his chest, they seem to have fuelled it.

    The Norwegian government were talking about this very thing today, that how somehow they have to find a way to find these people and reintegrate them. They believe this could be possible because they engaged I think with neo Nazi's before and they changed. They are concerned other far righters may follow him in Europe. They see it as a very serious problem which needs to be addressed.

    I recommend that Homeland Security arrest anyone who posts anything that can be interpreted as terrorism.
