I really wish I could issue an unwelcome to Norway to the family of nations that has experienced a horrific terrorist attack. Norway! How many less offensive nations are there than Norway? A right-wing nut with a gun and a collection of kooky causes blew away at least 93 people, most of them teenagers at a camp. Anders Behring Breivik is his name and apparently he has been planning the attack for nine years and written extensively about his ideas. According to a Time magazine write-up: "Breivik's rambling writings, grandly titled 2083: A European Declaration of Independence, present him as a right-wing nationalist fueled by a combined hatred of Muslims, Marxists and multiculturalists. His beliefs recall neo-Nazi politics that continue to linger throughout Europe, but freshened with a new, 21st century toxicity."
Great. So almost 100 innocent people have to die because of one individual's irrational hatreds. Unfortunately, yet one more country has had to experience this searing pain.
