Once Again Americans Save French as Marines Tackle Gunman on Train

I wonder if Obama will praise them or....?

An attack by an Islamist on a train from Belgium to Paris was foiled as two off duty U.S. Marines subdued the gunman. France's Minister of the Interior hailed their heroism:
Thanks to them we have averted a drama.  (The Americans were) particularly courageous and showed extreme bravery in extremely difficult circumstances.
This isn't' the first time that Americans have aided the French. It won't be the last!

UPDATE: Full Story

U.S. Airman Spencer Stone suffered multiple knife injuries after tackling gunman.
Despite his injuries he administered first aid to a severely wounded passenger saving his life.

Seized from the gunman: enough ammo for a trainload of death!
From the U.K. Independent:A US soldier has spoken of the moment he and a childhood friend prevented a gunman from opening fire on a passenger train from Amsterdam to northern France.

Alek Skarlatos, on holiday in Europe with fellow serviceman Spencer Stone and student Anthony Sadler, said he and his companions heard a gunshot and breaking glass while on their Thalys train at around 3.45pm on Friday.

“I saw a guy entering the carriage with an AK and a handgun, at that point I ducked down and my friend Spencer, next to me, ducked down and I just looked over at Spencer and said: ‘Let’s go’,” Mr Skalatos told Sky News from his hotel room in Arras, northern France.

The 22-year-old National Guardsman from Rosenburg, Oregan, and Mr Stone charged the unidentified 26-year-old man, believed to be of Moroccan origin, down the narrow carriage.

"Then I grabbed the AK (assault rifle), which was at his feet, and started muzzle thumping him in the head with it," Mr Skarlatos added.

Mr Sadler, a senior at Sacramento State University, told The Associated Press of his friends' exploits: "Spencer makes first contact, he tackles the guy, Alek wrestles the gun away from him, and the gunman pulls out a boxcutter and slices Spencer a few times.

“And the three of us beat him until he was unconscious.
While Americans were saving countless lives, the train's crew were barricaded in a staff room. One Frenchman was injured trying to activate the carriages emergency alarm.

UPDATE: Terrorist fought for ISIS in Syria. For people who want to believe that ISIS is just a regional problem, this attack is more proof to the contrary. Will Obama admit this was an act of Islamic terrorism?
