Another life snuffed out by some adherent of baseless superstition (we are told the perpetrator was a recent Moslem convert).

I hope the Corporal's family will be well supported. It cannot benefit him now that his murderer was so swiftly dealt with. But Justice? Far too quick and short-reaching for that.

He gave his life for his country so deserves every honour and respect unlike the gutless bastard who killed him.

In all the sad coverage of the mayhem in Ottawa, we must not forget the death of Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent and the wounding of another soldier who were run down by another "radicalized" home grown terrorist in Gatineau, Quebec, the previous day.

Gutless? Whether or not one agrees with his politics or beliefs, the soldier's killer was prepared to die for them, and did so. I don't think that gutless, any more than Japanese kamikazes were gutless.
Before people start venting their spleen, it doesn't mean that I agree with what he did!

Surely the baseless belief in being a heartbeat from paradise removes any appreciation of consequences that might otherwise make such a cowardly act (argue that description!) in any way chivalrous.

Without being involved in a war or fighting an armed opponent who is intent on doing you harm, he took a life to satisfy his OWN twisted logic. He did not imagine that he would be caught judging by the news feeds and that in my ever so humble opinion is gutless. To argue differently siting the 'divine wind' pilots of WW2 is just clouding the waters. We were at war, remember?

So are they. So are we. We're bombing Iraq aren't we? Are we only bombing people intent on doing us harm? How are they doing us harm in Syria and Iraq?

You could say the same of anyone with deep religious beliefs and that includes Christians as well as Muslims.

Denying qualities of humanity to our enemies, whoever they are, is always part of a country's propaganda campaign. Who is suggesting that what he did was chivalrous? When is warfare is in any way chivalrous?

I fail to find any quality of humanity in deliberately killing a defenceless person - soldier or civilian. Yes, there are none fighters being killed in the Middle East as collateral damage caused by attempting to slow down the head chopping, children burying lunatics of ISA. As with other battles in that part of the world they are mixing in with the civilian population as they are well aware of our well publicised sensitivities regarding civilian loss of life. The difference is of course that none combatants are not being deliberately targeted.

Surely a uniformed soldier of a state that is engaged in warfare is a legitimate target? A member of the armed forces of that country, in uniform, certainly cannot be regarded as a non-combatant.

For a supposedly intelligent man you really are a complete ****.

Unless and until you have worn the uniform of your country and in doing so accept all that entails how dare you pontificate on the rights and wrongs of a "legitimate target"

I'll bet you don't even wear a poppy to honour those who gave their lives just so people like you could spout the crap you so often despoil this forum with.

I would say that gunman was hardly brave, shooting a soldier on ceremonial duty with an un loaded gun and then going on a rampage to shoot unarmed people. Apparently he had a troubled personality (!) and a criminal past.

Engaged in warfare with whom? A rag tag and disparate group of people with no overall common interest, apart from medieval and inhumane treatment of others? You speak of them as a recognised and orderly regular group - tell that to the poor sods we have seen kneeling,and shown on our televisions about to have their heads torn off. I find your game of sleight of word and abstract logic totally disgusting. If it is done, just for the sake of it, then you, in my mind, are a most peculiar person. I have attempted to refrain from very bad language and have found it difficult.
