Richard may correct me, but as I recall, the Marines used to be called “Leather Necks” because the uniform was designed to resist the muslim tactic of slashing at the neck with swords. The fact that we have decided to forget all this useful survival information makes us, in a way, deserving of what we are getting now.
Thank you M., Johnny U., Richard, Kathy, and all who sent in materials.
3- I hope American officials address the attacker with the correct pronoun salutation so to not run afoul with Canadian Bill C-16. It’s the least they can do.
Montreal Gazette –
[…]the suspect is from Quebec and has a Canadian passport.
[…]“everything is on the table” as far as motive is concerned but cautioned against jumping to conclusions.

HEAVY – Amor Ftouhi: 5 Facts Facts You Need to Know
1. Amor Ftouhi, a Canadian citizen originally from Tunisia, was identified as the “lone wolf” suspect accused of shouting “Allahu Akbar” before stabbing a police officer multiple times at an airport in Flint, Michigan.
The FBI is leading the incident into the attack that wounded police Lt. Jeff Neville. Neville is now in stable condition, although he initially in critical condition after the attack.
Ftouhi, 49, was identified at an early evening press conference. He is being charged with committing an act of violence at an airport, said David Lemisch, the acting U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan. The charge carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in federal prison. It is not clear if he could face additional federal or state charges as the investigation continues. Ftouhi was expected to make his first appearance Wednesday in federal court in Flint, the U.S. Attorney’s office said.
According to prosecutors, Ftouhi walked up to Neville, who was in full uniform, and stabbed him in the neck. He then shouted “Allahu Akbar,” and referenced “killings in Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq,” the U.S. Attorney’s office said.
Ftouhi legally entered the United States through New York on June 16, the Detroit Free Press reports.

His facebook page — ( soon to be deleted ) :
The miracle that is the EU members’ prosperity is not the result of fantastic productivity or amazing competitiveness, but rather is an illusion based on excessive debt. And it won’t continue.
That was for Pand’s middle article.
Not just the EU’s prosperity, most of the prosperity in the nations composing the First World is due to excessive excessive debt, It is so bad that the Debt owning nations don’t dare refuse to loan more and even the ones that are atheists are praying for a major miracle to save the worlds economy.
Eeyore you are right, they are still called leather necks because of that and from what I know ( could be wrong) in Britain they are at times still called boot necks. If you see an American Indian in a movie that has reeds standing on their ends as a neckless that is also armor to protect the neck in a knife fight. If you are in close during a knife going for the neck is a very good tactic.
If you are taking out a sentry slipping up behind them and cutting their throats is a good way to do it, but don’t blame me if you end up wearing blood drenched clothes until you get back to base.
Looks like the police are going to have to change their uniforms and include more body armor because of the knife attacks that are so popular. which is going to make Moslems real unpopular with the police. Right not the temp is 96 F with a heat index of 100F. I wouldn’t want to rear a high tight collar in temps like this and I wouldn’t want to be the man ordering people to were them.
Israeli designers have come up with light-weight, slash-resistent fabrics suitable for uniforms.
Yeah!? Can I get a scarf made out of it?
I want one too.
The Hungarians also developed a crude but fairly effective defense against Muslim knife assaults. They call it a fence.
And I believe they went to Israel for pointers in building one.
This works too, and it isn’t hard on the police in hat weather.
