SEMPER FI !!! IN FRANCE
Will interrupt the Ten Commandments with a joyful and proud tribute to our United States Marines!
Well, today in France young Marines just like him did a heroic deed, saving many, many lives on a high speed commuter train. It happened here in Arras:
“Always faithful” to their … duty, one of them noticed a nervous passenger going into the train’s restroom. A minute or so later, he recognized the sound of a weapon being loading. Now, I wouldn’t know what that sounds like if you loaded your gun in front of me, but these are highly trained young men — and alert.
What the young Marines heard was the sound of magazines being loaded into a Kalishnikov. The nervous man came out of the bathroom, raised the Kalishnikov and opened fire on the passengers. The Marines jumped into action, and though they were both unarmed, they tackled the gunman and pinned him to the floor until the train stopped and the French authorities took over.
A couple passengers were injured.
As I said, they probably saved “many, many lives.” Here are the magazines on the floor which could have produced a real massacre:
Congratulations — and thank you to all Marines. You make our world safer!!
Semper Fi !
Oh – the gunman’s name is: Ayoub el-Qahzzani
