Stockholm



Many have said it was just a matter of time and today it happened.....a highjacked truck driven by a madman in high speed down Drottninggatan in Stockholm.
So far four people dead and 15 injured. And a dead dog. A few years ago a man with a bomb strapped to himself detonated the bomb on the same street, Drottninggatan, only he died then. And plenty of shocked bystanders.
A few days ago, bombs on the subway in St.Petersburg. A truck drove into people in London. Before that Berlin. And Nice. Paris. Theo van Gogh. There was a nerve agent chemical attack in Syria recently. Sarin is banned, illegal and to release a gas amongst people is.....I have no words.
No matter where in the world innocent people die in senseless violent attacks it is just wrong. It happened to be Stockholm today. The city I grew up in and a place that I love, of course.
Well.....many of these attacks have been carried out by men with Arabic names, in the name of Allah and organizations like ISIS have claimed responsibility for much of this. These are just facts, nothing made up.
Oh yes, there are non Arab, non Muslim folks that go on killing sprees as well, I am very much aware of that. Just seems to be a whole lot of attacks in the name of the not so peaceful religion Islam carried out in the last two decades or so.
Of course there was stuff happening worldwide in the 70's and 80's as well but I don't have any statistic on that. I can think of Pan Am flight 103, Lockerbie.
And the Northern Ireland Conflict, IRA.
Sweden is a very politically correct place, being labeled a racist or "främlingsfientlig" is something really bad. You might get seriously shunned for that. God forbid you are outspoken about your political opinions if they have anything to do with wanting to accept less immigrants into the country.
That makes you a bad person.
I grew up knowing people either born somewhere else besides Sweden, like myself or being second generation immigrants. I have very close friends from all over. But I also have opinions and even my immigrant friends in Sweden with roots from the Middle East are not happy with the political situation and the downturn of the country. This was one of the bigger topics of discussion last time I was home. Swedes are kind and naive by nature. Other not so nice people take advantage of that. I have often been too kind and naive for my own good after leaving Sweden, not understanding that some people lie and really only are out to harm you in whatever ways they can. There has been much disbelief, many tears and sadness in my life because of that.
Anyhow. I am not sure what can be done about ISIS and similar groups. I want to say that they will go away soon, that this will all go away but that would be foolish wouldn't it? I do not understand what makes somebody feel compelled and driven to carry out acts like these and honestly believe that they are doing something good.
I don't get it. I did not grow up like that. I will never understand.
Yeah, I talked to my brother, he was stuck in Stockholm like many others because public transportation was at a standstill. I talked to my Mom and I am going to call them again tomorrow.
I really miss Sweden, it is a beautiful place with kind wonderful people living there. Too bad that this happened in Stockholm today. But no matter where innocent people die in the world it is wrong.

Tatiana:
After I got home from work today I had started to compose a note to you about this very thing. I saw this about the Sweden terrorist attack on the television NEWS this morning. I am glad that your family is safe and hopefully your acquaintances and friends are also safe and OK.

I do not know the solution for all of this going on in the world, it is definitely not the world that I knew just a decade ago. Where this will all end we do not know. Just try to be safe and be very aware of our surroundings.

Strangers coming to our countries to live should try to assimilate, learn the language and be productive and law abiding citizens. If they want to change our country to something like where they came from they need to go back to their home or near a place where their culture is acceptable to them.

I have problem with ANY kind of culture that views women as property or something that needs to be in the background with no voice or personal freedom.
I am sure there are some misogynist backwards dumbasses in the US with views like that as well.
Ayaan Hirsi Ali on Islam, "Just like Nazism started with Hitler's vision, the Islamic vision is a caliphate – a society ruled by Sharia law – in which women who have sex before marriage are stoned to death, homosexuals are beaten, and apostates like me are killed. Sharia law is as inimical to liberal democracy as Nazism.... Violence is inherent in Islam – it's a destructive, nihilistic cult of death. It legitimates murder."

I dont react with sadness anymore, these attacks are what the people in power want , that's why they're against border control.

In eastern europe no attacks has happened , but EU wants to force them to accept "refugees". Why?

The ruling class use these events to reduce ordinary peoples freedoms , piece by piece.

Tatiana on :

Well, the refugees do not want to live in Eastern Europe for obvious reasons. First, they are not very welcome.
Also, they will be able to live way more comfortably in Sweden than in Poland for example. Sweden is a very generous country and a large percentage of the refugees want to go there, it only makes sense. But in reality Sweden can't accommodate all of them. And not all refugees are just that - refugees. The idea that an ISIS fighter should and can be rehabilitated and can or even wants become a productive member of society is ridiculous. ISIS and whatever other similar minded scum do not belong in civilized European countries.
Yes, I feel bad for innocent people in Syria caught up in the war. Look at pictures of what Aleppo used to look like a few years ago compared to now. These people are caught in a war. I am sure most of them just want to get their old lives back before the war.
Assad needs to step down. Dropping Sarin is unacceptable. I also do not understand this Sunni and Shia complete madness bullshit that has been going on for.....centuries? Get it together already for fucks sake.
Isis was an Egyptian goddess. It might be women that put this world in order in the end. Obviously the men are not doing a good job.

mumintrollet on :

Why would Assad use sarin? Only ISIS seems to gain from it and they have used cemicals and children as human shields.

Watch democrat Rep. Tulsi Gabbard :

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2cduat02QyI

She wants proof of Sarin use and proof of who did it.
She doesnt want a new iraq like war over false evidence ( Colin Powel ).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tulsi_Gabbard

"She opposes US-led regime-change wars like those in Iraq, Libya, and Syria, and has opposed removal of Bashar al-Assad from power, arguing that US regime-change intervention in Syria's civil war is a source of the Syrian refugee crisis."

"In July 2004, Gabbard asked to deploy with her Hawaii Army National Guard unit, volunteering for a 12-month tour in Iraq, where she served in a field medical unit as a specialist with the 29th Support Battalion medical company."







" It might be women that put this world in order in the end. Obviously the men are not doing a good job."

Hillary is responsible for the Libya disaster and she 's behind the weapon smuggling to ISIS ( Bengazi ).
She's pushing for regime change in Syria that may lead to war with russia.

Power corrupts.

Tatiana on :

Sigh.....yes Hillary is not the best example of a woman in power taking the peaceful route. I mean women in general. Not ONE woman.
I have to admit I am not one that knows anything in depth about Assad and what he stands for. Seems to be a rather educated person. But was he responsible for Ghouta? He denied involvement. Other sources say he was behind it.
It seems very difficult for a third neutral party to get to the bottom of what is really going on is Syria and who is responsible for what. Gathering information on site in Syria is basically setting yourself up to get killed. I do know that Putin is behind Assad. He is not going to back down, Putin that is.
Yes....power corrupts. I see it on low scale levels in my daily interactions in my own life.

"The Polish interior minister affirmed Poland will not repeat the Western European policy of multiculturalism which he said has led to the “bloody harvest” of multiple terror attacks across the continent since the start of the migrant crisis.
“The policy of multiculturalism in Western Europe is bringing about a bloody harvest in the form of terrorist attacks,” Mariusz Błaszczak told Polish Radio on Tuesday."

Tatiana on :

Yes....I am familiar with the overall attitude in Poland in this matter.
Now....do you think Le Pen will win the upcoming election in France?

mumintrollet on :

Good chance she will, but it will be close, fifty fifty.
I didnt think trump would win.

For some reason media doesnt talk about how historic and important it would be with a female president in france, strange...

Tatiana on :

Ha Ha.....you are right, good observation! Le Pen must not be a media darling I am assuming....
