Not sure any group of people as a whole should get the blame. The gunman seems to be a lone nutter, with possible to links to Islamic Extremism suggested because he's Muslim. He's also got strong links to Kosovo, the US is hardly high on the list of favoured countries of some people from Kosovo, thanks to the US led UN Peacekeeping mission occupying the area since 1999.

To blame the Germans as a whole would be like blaming the British people as a whole for the tube bombings, as all the bombers were British Muslims.

Agreed you can't just decide to blame a whole religion or country just because one man who's muslim and grew up in Germany shot people.

First of all they need to find out why he was acting out and determine whether or not he was workign for any terrorist organisation etc.

Could you imagine what it would be like if you were president or PM ? "The guy's muslim but lives in Germany, who will we go to war with ? **** it take them both out" XD

Seems that he is pretty much in fact, bitter about what happened in Kosovo and the hatred simply boiled over. Maybe too, he's using his religious beliefs as a reason (albiet not a justified one). And perhaps the events that are happening in the middle east as we speak, maybe triggered something? No one can explain what goes through a persons mind though imo
