DEVELOPING…

A bus transporting US soldiers to Frankfurt Airport was attacked Wednesday by a gunman who shot and killed at least two, according to published reports.

A US soldier and the bus driver were among the dead, they added, and another two were serious injured. The shooting took place near terminal 2, according to Sky News.

The attacker was believed to be a young man from Kosovo in his 20s, Britain’s The Guardian noted.

While the US military had not made a statement, a police spokesman told The Guardian that the attack “appears to have taken place on the bus.”

Frankfurt Airport is Germany’s largest international hub, and the second largest airport in Europe.

    I hope WW2 ends soon, we can bring these soldiers home.

    You mean WW3, and no chance of that happening, they’re going into Libya in a few weeks.

    No, I’m sure he meant WW2 as our soldiers have been there that long. WW3 started when bozo bush started his unnecessary wars. Where ever we go we leave a base and our troops there.

    That’s different. Usually, it’s US soldiers opening fire on unarmed civilians. Does that mean that the civilians are fighting back? When the dust settles, it will probably come to light that US soldiers raped the shooter’s daughter, sodomized his minor son, murdered someone close to him or all three.

    Weeks? Are you kidding? They can’t wait that long to get their paws on all that oil. They should be in control of the situation and massacring civilians by Friday.
