    Here we have a unlucky terrorist who chooses wrong train within which to massacre innocent civilians in France. Not only that, he chose the wrong train car in which to commence his rampage.

    ISIS, who murders bound captives, take note: American might is in the mind, not so much in the weapons. Because most would think that the terrorist had the entire advantage being armed to the teeth.

    Unarmed American military members lept onto and not only beat the terrorist senseless, one military member saved a civilians life, stemming the flow from the civilian’s serious neck wound, while he himself was cut up and bleeding.

    President Obama (however begrudgingly) and President Hollande praised the men, who are also being bestowed France's top honor.

    President Obama, for his part, shamelessly reduced the American servicemen's involvement in his official White House statement (capitals mine):

    "The president expressed his profound gratitude for the courage and quick thinking of SEVERAL PASSENGERS, including US service members, who selflessly subdued the attacker,"

    "While the investigation into the attack is in its early stages, it is clear that THEIR heroic actions MAY HAVE prevented a far worse tragedy."

    Newspapers revealed how train workers locked themselves into cabinets and how others on the train prepared to meet their maker.

    Your OP is full of factual inaccuracies and/or misrepresentations, and there is also a thread on the subject.
