A final word on the Munich shootings

President Obama on Friday: “Germany’s one of our closest allies, so we are going to pledge all the support that they may need in dealing with these circumstances.”  Well, with it now being confirmed that 18-year-old gunman, Ali Sonboly, was a bit of a loner with mental health issues, it might just be that this shooting had all the traits of a whole array of rampage killings made in the US of A. So, Mr Obama, what have you been doing in the United States to prevent killings such as these being avoided?

Still, we shouldn’t be too hard on the American president. After all, most of those killings were perpetrated by loners with psychological problems. Yes, loners not too different from Ali Sonboly. However, it might just be that the young German – and one must wonder why the German media keep referring to him as “German-Iranian” – wasn’t completely negatively influenced by a wider world where mass murder is almost the order of the day.

Moreover, the perpetrators of those mass murders won’t claim psychological problems as a defence. However, when we consider the extent of their crimes, might it not just be that Tony Blair, George Bush, Hillary Clinton, Benjamin Netanyahu, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, Francios Hollande, Barack Obama, and, yes, many, many, others,are all self-serving, egotistical, megalomaniac, psychopaths?

There are a lot of poor bastards out there being used and abused; it is just not cricket "old bean". Something tells me that ignorance is not bliss, but is, in fact, simply ignorance and in the global village we cannot look the other way.
