Is anyone else starting to get their Jihadi attacks mixed up, now?

I feel like I might need to start writing them down to keep them straight.

Bombings, meat cleavers, shooting, running over crowds, night clubs, business meetings, 'workplace violence' beheadings....gropers, rapers, feelers,...

Maybe I am too old.

I forget, were these killers Buddhist or something?

The attacks are now too frequent for me to keep them straight, too.

Age?

Maybe.

Certainly my chronic kidney trouble. Looking forward to being put under anesthesia so that I don't have to think about World War M for a while.

They were bullied and deranged individuals.

Nothing to do with Islam.

The derangement is triggered by Islam.

I'm not sure, AOW. This is a catch 22, at least for converts. Are they deranged because they choose Islam, or become deranged because of the ideology's teachings?

Losing track and losing count. Occasionally forgetting what is Islam vs. what is BLM inspired. And actually finding myself getting depressed about it now and again, especially when we hear of children killed. I mean we have all become pretty inured to the stories and images but a 15 yr old girl because she thought she was going to get a free hamburger! And you will find this very weird but in 3 of the last 4 attacks I woke that morning and knew KNEW we'd be reporting on a mass casualty attack before the day was over (Baton Rouge Nice and Munich, missed Dallas). Not where just that we would.

It has gotten bad enough that a couple times my wife has forced me out of the house so as not to watch the news.

MR,

Same here!

I find that I must get away and take a nap. Otherwise, I'll have a meltdown.

EXACTLY! and anyone who knows me knows that ain't me.

Not only Buddhist but also lone wolf, white, Christian, NRA members.

Come on Epaminondas, know your narrative.

Though, in the last week, it has been crazy with four (!) attacks in Germany. We will soon have the same problem here in Canada. In 2015-16, we will have accepted 55,000 refugees from Syria. No doubt, a few of them will turn out to be "Buddhist".
