Two U.S. Airmen Killed in Shooting at Germany's Frankfurt Airport
The shooter is described as being a native of Mitrovica, Kosovo. The story doesn't say, but most Kosovars are Muslims. Interestingly, the US has a generally positive image in Kosovo and Albania thanks to our intervention n their behalf in 1999.
Less so with the ethnic Serb minority population of Kosovo. So it is entirely possible that it could be a pissed off Serb trying to get revenge. Just wanted to throw that note out before folks jump to the "self-radicalized lone wolf radical Islamofascist jihadi" conclusion.

I believe the G3's tongue was planted firmly in his cheek. Unless DARPA has some cool toys capable of Starship Troopers-style orbital drops that we haven't heard about yet. Which would be awesome. And which would definitely need 'AA' logos all over them.
I will put the Kool-AAid down now.
