Hero US marine who prevented Muslim terrorist’s train massacre in France is ‘in critical condition’

A US Marine is in critical condition after tackling a Kalashnikov-wielding gunman on a train between Amsterdam and Paris, according to French media reports.

The serviceman, who has not been named, was one of two Americans on leave – possibly embassy guards – who tackled the 26-year-old Moroccan national to the ground after hearing him load up a gun in the toilet.

In the scuffle, one of the Marines was shot and is now in a critical condition, France Info reports. He was airlifted to CHR hospital in Lille, France. The other Marine was stabbed, and has been taken to the central hospital of Arras with serious but not life-threatening injuries.

    Hang in there.

    • French medicine is pretty good I hear.

        French medicine did wonders for Lady Di. 😉

        Seriously, I don’t know one way or the other.
        Is French medicine any good, I don’t know. I just hope they didn’t give him an Algerian Doctor, just to prove how non-racist they still are.

        Yes, it most certainly is. From personal experience it surpasses our own, since they do not hold their citizens hostage to universal socialised health care. Ours went down hill once that happened.

      Go Marines!

    I hope they do everything humanly possible to save him. They should spare no expense. He is a hero.

    • Alain

      True and they are both heros. Who knows how many innocent people would have been killed in cold blood had they not shown the courage to take him down.

    Quebec favours Moroccans and Haitians as immigrants because they speak French.

    They really fit in with the Quebecois fervour.

    Barry is pissed
    Barry will send these Marines straight to Leavenworth
    or ValJar will disappear them (22 Seals .. Bin La…)

      He’s sending an aircraft for them. Extortion 17.

    Latest word is that the seriously wounded man is in the USAF, not a Marine. There were apparently four American servicemen involved, two Marines, an airman, and a member of the US National Guard, recently returned from Af’stan.

    Why do French women sleep with French men?

    • Frances

      Don’t know, but the French who came to the New World and later journeyed west are REAL MEN.

        Europe lost its best to North America.

    “The motives behind the attack were not immediately known, although a spokesman for the interior minister said: ‘It is too early to speak of a terrorist link’.”

    Moroccan Muzzie loads up an AK-47 in the loo, ready to kill, but it’s too soon to tell.

    Will the wounded have to wait as long as those hurt at Fort Hood for purple hearts and combat benefits?
