Norway

Posted in Uncategorized by ruthanzo on July 22, 2011

So far all the police have turned up is a 32 yr old right wing Christian. Can one madman be responsible for all the carnage? I wouldn’t have thought so but apparently this is the case. Yesterday I was convinced it was a cold geo-political move.. (Let’s see. Norway still has not joined the EU. It has it’s own strong currency not the flailing euro. It’s a very wealthy country with large oil reserves second only to the Middle East. It has a left-wing government in power. The attacks were near the Norwegian PM’s office and on an island where there’s a left-wing Summer camp. (These last 2 could be canards to make it look like it’s neo-nazis.) Who would have a motive? The EU strapped with the Euro? Might it be the same people as rushed into Libya? I’m going out on a limb here and ask whether it could possibly be a country where the ladies famously wear no pants? Canada has the same problems Norway has. Neighbours who are broke or will soon be and want or think they already own our oil reserves, a stronger currency than the neighbours’, a social safety net, at least for now. I don’t know. Update: The terrorists are probably the oil companies who want a bigger piece of the pie. I would think a left-wing Norway gets to keep a much bigger percentage from the oil revenues than say the U.S. gets from the oil companies drilling in the continental U.S. Then there’s the Russians. I just googled Norway-Russia relationship and by all accounts it’s pretty good. The Swedish right wing? I wish Stieg Larsson were here to solve this one. In any case it’s a damned cowardly act.)

    Insoafar as we’re in what is called ‘the silly season’ or was when there were newspapers this makes little sense. Oslo is anna gram foe Loos . Anita ?

    A tall blond man dressed as Old Bill ? Maybe a disaffected Neo Nazi ticked off at the fact that R. Hess ist nein mohr en Bavaria. My Waterloo/ Trieste distaff spent a month in Oslo last year.

    Moving Rudy was the first thing I thought of. This thing seems too well planned for a bunch of disaffected neo-nazis. What do they stand to gain? Though they may have been used by a powerful group who would stand to gain.

    Looks like it was right wing. I can normally find humour in anything- not now
