  1. Training people to kill and Build Bombs is wrong and dangerous as this case shows , we can't predict how people will use the training provided to them !!!

  2. Something triggered in his mind to go off and needs deep mental help. There's many people out there like this and profiling and locking a person up doesn't cure and stop future people from doing the same thing.

  3. Weird how you heebs don't cover semitic terror attacks with as much enthusiasm. The jewish scum that runs the bbc cannot be trusted. Hitler did nothing wrong!

  4. My dad and uncle were in the marines during 2nd world war and to hear this about.a marine what the he'll is going on God help us all

  5. omg 1 christian cis white male made a bomb haha lets use this to defend the religion of peace and tolerance11!!1!1!11!

  6. A harsh sentence !. They should have considered mitigating factors like the fact he was Irish and grew up in a protestant part of Belfast and witnessed his family being persecuted daily. He was attacked by protestant thugs in his own home and had his skull fractured when he was young. Maybe he wanted revenge, I very much doubt he posed a threat to the public as his target would have been the enemy. In truth all he did was steal ammunition and pass it to someone else so its not clear if he intended to use it.

  7. 18 years is way too long. What about all the British terrorists that are walking around free in Northern Ireland.

  8. A terrorist or a freedom fighter? The Irish and the Scottish living in America that fought to overthrow the Monarchy rule were considered terrorists too. I'm sure if you talk to people in Northern Ireland, he's considered a freedom fighter. When the Monarchy paid the native mercenaries a dollar for the scalp of each American they killed, were they not terrorists? They were trading the scalps of murdered women and children like animal pelts. 5 women in ancestral tree were scalped by natives while the men were away. They returned home and found their dead loved ones laying on the floor with brains splattered all over the floor. There were countless numbers of people that were savagely murdered like this, but we were blamed for genocide against the peaceful natives? Why doesn't the Monarchy just simply end the occupation and give Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and England their independence so they can govern themselves? It's just a dictatorial regime masquerading as a democracy. I'm not condoning the bombing of innocent people, but I'm also not condoning the occupation of Northern Ireland. It should be condemned by the UN and the UK government should be sanctioned until the occupation ends.

  9. Gosh… can't wait when global warming gets more higher so that white people will get extinct due to their lack of pigment.

  10. Other than misplaced smugness I don't understand the comments below about christian terrorists. He wasn't motivated by his religion as Muslim extremists are. He was driven by revenge against the group that beat him up. THEY attacked him because he didn't share their group affiliation. He retaliated.
