Most western "religion" I have encountered is more social and cultural in nature than a true belief in some spiritual being. Even most of the bible belt loons in the states.

Don't you think theres a difference though. I'm sure if a national tragedy happened here, people would be filling the streets too.
Dream on. Everyone would be running around pointing fingers screaming about how the police fire etc etc etc were to slow dimwitted etc etc.

Finger pointing would be primary over joining together. Look at the london bombings for an idea of how we would react.

To be fair, the police used a lot of unnecessary time to gather and take take action regarding Utøya, but in general I think people realize that they did as best as they could. It was an attack like to other, after all - who trains in advance for a gunman rampage on an island with only kids??


Anyway, today in Oslo (and across the country):

"Some 40,000 people have gathered on an Oslo square to sing a popular peace song which mass killer Anders Behring Breivik condemned at his trial."

Breivik is not a serial killer or a spree killer. He is insane by any normal standards but he has a plan and he is trying to stick to it. He wants to inspire and like it or not, he will.
Hate it when I'm right. Especially in this case.

The police in Oslo have been slammed for their performance.

The Chief of Police has left.

21 years, and "storage/custody". After the 21 years have passed, a custody of five years is added if he is still deemed to be dangerous, after that another five years and another.

Ruling him sane is going to open a can of worms with his manifesto.

I'm glad you posted that - that was exactly what I was thinking when he was ruled sane. It gives credence to his manifesto and why he went loco - only he didn't go loco, they've ruled against that.

I'd never thought about the fact the the courts now say he's sane.....

Seems to me this is exactly what he wanted.

That is the question, this is all about perspectives. He believes he was at war, he doesn't look at it as murder in the same was politicians and OBL went about their terrorism/warcraft. I am sure people living in the mountains in Afganistan just doing there thing that killed by Alied forces accidently could easily make the same accusations.

The world is mad and always will be.

Wouldn't it be ironic that if in 21 years time when he's up for the opportunity of release, it's a Sharia court that decides.

Easily. Was Genghis Khan insane? What about Caesar? so on so forth. Also try remember one persons innocent is another persons guilty.
