    that doesn't fit their political rhetoric, but then i guess i shouldn't presume coherence from brutal murderers.

      ... uniform. The killing occurred as the victim was returning to a nearby barracks. The killers drove their car onto the sidewalk, ran him down, leaped out and attacked him with a knife and a cleaver and perhaps a sword or machete.

      Calling other DKos members "weenies" is a personal insult and therefore against site rules.

          From ITV:

          We have heard from a man - an attacker, who you see in the ITV News footgage - with a knife and blood on his hands, saying "...we swear by almighty Allah, that we will never stop fighting you. Until you leave us alone, your people will never be safe".

          He goes on: "...the only reason we have done this is because Muslims are dying by British soldiers every day.  

          Calling other DKos members "weenies" is a personal insult and therefore against site rules.

          •  then why not (0+ / 0-)

            try to attack more than one man? again, i don't expect coherence from brutal murderers, but it doesn't strike me as consistent with the rhetoric.
