NEWS: Shooting in Germany Hits Busload of US Troops

Looks like some Kosovar took a shot at a US bus. Don't they know that we stole their country from Yugoslavia for them?

From CNN
Two people were shot and killed Wednesday in an incident involving a U.S. military bus at Frankfurt Airport in Germany, a police spokesman said.
Another person is severely wounded, Juergen Linker told CNN, and one person is in custody.
A U.S. military official said initial reports were that two people had been killed, including the driver of the bus.
It is not clear if the driver was German or American, or military or civilian.
Two others are wounded, said the source, who is not authorized to speak publicly about the incident.
The troops killed and injured are U.S. Air Force airmen from Lakenheath base in the United Kingdom, the U.S. official said, emphasizing that the information was only preliminary.
They were security forces on their way to a deployment, the source said, without saying specifically where they were heading.
They were flying commercial, not on a military plane, according to the source.
It's believed the German police have a young Kosovo national in custody, the U.S. official said.

It reported that a U.S. service member and the bus driver were thought to have been killed with at least two other people injured.
The Local, citing police, said the suspect was a 21-year-old from Kosovo.
The shootings appeared to have taken place inside the bus, police spokesman Jurgen Linker told Germany's Die Welt newspaper.

Didn't I just say that maybe the Russians were right about the Kosovars? Not to paint with too broad a brush, but it sure seems like helping Muslims around the world doesn't inspire a lot of gratitude, does it?
