US Saves France (Again): Unarmed Marines Foil Suspected AK-47 Wielding Terrorist

A group of unarmed US Marines on board a high-speed train between Amsterdam and Paris foiled a terrorist attack after a gunman opened fire with an assault rifle, wounding three people.

The 26-year-old Moroccan national, who was known to security services, came out of the toilet brandishing the gun and opened fire. Fortunately, two US Marines were nearby and overpowered him before he could massacre passengers.

The suspected terrorist had at least nine full magazines of ammunition holding almost 300 rounds. He was also carrying a knife.

    The President of France gave those 3 hero’s, that prevented a terrorist attack, the Legion of Merit. (France’s highest award)

    0bama didn’t even give them a phone call, but he called a homo football player to congratulate him.

    Well who ever they were good for them, that was a brave move and it saved many lives

    What difference does it make where they are from, the got the job done; no loss of life and the Moroccan should be getting the guillotine but then France has banned its use I think.

      “What difference does it make” ??… Hillary???… Another with no standards for life in general and for our society in general… alas!

    Isn’t it funny that two out of the four heroes you mention you specifically identify where they are from—like the two marxist states of Oregon and California and the third from the progressive liberal country of Britain—WHY IS THAT?

      Because that’s where they are from, They would have said Texas had it they have been from been Texas. They also detailed where the Gunman was from. You will note that these brave young men didn’t need guns to stop him, just their courage. Always a good day when no one dies and the bad guy is in jail.

      Isn’t it funny you actually think everyone in OR, CA and UK are Marxist—WHY IS THAT?

  • skipsart

    Great story but no U.S. Marines were involved. There was a USAF Airman,
    an Oregon National Guardsman, a California civilian and a Brit.

      Thank you. I was going to comment about this site’s lack of journalistic integrity, but you beat me to it. I trust AFP (the French news agency) before I do anything they write here.

      • skipsart

        You are most welcome and you are, of course, correct.

        Isn’t it funny how the article starts out with “US Saves France (Again”), No wonder we are called the “Ugly Americans” A lesson in humility should be learned here.

        • I Seigel

          The article was written and published in England. Not American reporters. Humility has nothing to do with this.
