Market Garden Veterans Association,

RIP Hero of the Waal Crossing T. Moffatt Burriss

We are sad to announce the passing of one of 'our' veterans.

Thomas Moffatt Burriss, a former Columbia area contractor, Republican state lawmaker and American World War II battlefield hero, died Friday the 4th of January 2019. He was 99.
Burriss, who was known as a humble man with a good sense of humor, served as a paratrooper in the U.S. Army from 1942 to 1945 and participated in some of that war’s heaviest fighting, notably “Operation Market Garden” in the Netherlands.
That 1944 mission made massive use of U.S. and British airborne troops, whose mission it was to capture bridges deep inside Nazi-controlled territory and hold them until Allied ground troops could reach them. Burriss was in the lead elements of the American paratrooper forces, which saw in that operation some of the heaviest fighting of the war.
His and others’ roles in that operation were featured in the movie, “A Bridge Too Far.” Actor Robert Redford played a composite of Burriss and other 82nd Airborne soldiers.
Burriss wrote a book about his exploits called “Strike and Hold.”
The veteran also served as a representative in the South Carolina State House from 1977 to 1992 representing Richland County.
The people of Nijmegen (the Netherlands) will always rememeber him as one of their liberators.

Rest easy soldier!

Strassbourg/Straatsburg,


French police organized a large manhunt for the man who attacked visitors tuesday the 11th at 22.00 at the x-mas market.
A terrorist opened fire on the people visiting the market, killing 3 and wounding 13 of which 5 are in bad condition, of those 5 two have died bringing the number to 5 killed.
Among the dead is a man (45) a tourist from Thailand, his wife is among the injured.
The shooter ( 29 year Cheriff Chekatt) is still on the run.
He is known with the French police and has a large crime history with 20 known confictions including armed robberies.

In total there have been 3 incidents, two firefights with policemen and the attack on the market.
The terrorist was hit in one of those engagements but somehow managed to escape.

In the mean time 100 s of policemen have set up roadblocks and border security has been tightened.
There was a search near the kathedrale in Strassbourg. 5 people have been arrested who are known to have ties to the terrorist.
All other x-mas markets have more security, police is searching through the city.
All other public events like a demonstration are cancelled.
The threat level in France is now at the highest level, long live the religion of peace.

On the day of the attack the police raided his house searching for evidence on a case of manslaughter.
Reports confirmed he was on the terrorist list, together with over 20.000 others.
However he still managed to do the terrorist attack.

Its going to be a dark xmas again......

He was only lightly injured. The incident took place at the HQ of the belgian police in Brussel at the Korenmarkt.
An other officer shot the man in the chest, both the officer and the attacker were taken to hospital. The purp is not in a life threathening situation anymore after surgery.
The attacker was known to the police, he was charged with gun law violations.
Secretary Jambon named this another cowardly attack against the Belgian Police.

Wir schaffen das......

16-10-18.

And again, again, again a new day a new attack.
In the city of Koln, this time at the railroad station police ended a terrorist attack that started with arson and resulted in a hostagetaking.
The purp was shot by the police and was hospitalized.
Two people were injured.

The attack occurred in the afternoon at the Mc Donalds at Kolns busy station.
Here the cowardly attack    started when the man threw a molotovcocktail causing minor burns to his first victim , a 14 year old girl.
But the restaurants sprinklers worked well and put out the flames.
The man than fled taking an other woman hostage inside the stations pharmacy.
He taped some gas canisters to the womans body.

After futile attempts to negotiate with the man the police attacked when he wanted to set the woman on fire.
Using flashbangs police charged the pharmacy and shot and hit him several times. At that moment he was armed with a (fake?) pistol.
The terrorist was badly injured and taken to hospital.

Both of his victims were brought to a hospital as well.
Police couldnt give any clues about the man's motives or his identity.
A Syrian passport was found however, belonging to a violent criminal.
Police dont rule out any possibility this was a terrorattack, allthough the man claimed to be a daesh syphatizer.

Terrorist cell dismantled,

In a swift action police swat-teams, defense anti-terror teams and others have raided 7 houses in Vlaardingen, Rotterdam, Huissen en Arnhem.
7 people suspected of plotting a terrorist attack have been arrested.
During the search police found 5 firearms, 100 kilo fertilizer and materials to produce bombvests.

The main suspect is an Iraqi man aged 34, he was allready convicted in 2017 because he wanted to go to Syria to help Daesh.
The group was searching for more stuff like AK47's.
Meanwhile security forces kept them under surveilance.
Its still unclear what target the terrorists wanted to attack but its clear they wanted to strike against a crowded place somewhere in the country.

More to follow......

Seven people including two British tourists were wounded Sunday in Paris after they were attacked by a man armed with a knife and an iron bar.
The attacker was an Afghan national who was arrested.
"Nothing at this stage shows signs of a terrorist nature in these assaults," policesources said, adding that the attacker had targeted "strangers in the street."
Of the seven wounded, four are in a critical condition.
It was not immediately clear if the attacker was among one of the injured.
The incident took place just after 11 p.m. local time (2100 GMT) on the banks of a canal in the northeast of the capital.
A security guard at one of two cinemas on either side of the Canal de l'Ourcq said he saw a man who had already assaulted people being chased by two other men who tried to stop him.
"He had an iron bar in his hand which he threw at the men chasing him, then he took out a knife," he told AFP.
A police investigation has been launched for attempted murder, according to a judicial source.

And yes another week of terrorattacks.

In two villages in the east people were stabbed by 'ímmigrants'.
In Chemnitz a man coming to the aid of a woman was stabbed and died.
An Iraqi and a Syrian were arrested.
And in Kohlen a 22 year old German died of heartfailure after being stabbed by an Afghan.
In this case the German also came to the aid of a woman who was being attacked by three Afghans.

Barcelona,

Policeofficers shot a man armed with a knive who entered a policestation in Cornella.
He shouted Allah Akbar according to the police.
The officers tried to disarm the man but failed to do so, when he remained agressive they shot the man.
He was a 29 year old male off Algerian origine, he was just divorced from his Spanish wife.
The investigation now is focussing on the probability that the man had others helping him.
The attack came a year after the incident at Barcelona and Cambrill.

LONDON, Westminster.

 A man crashed a car into security barriers outside the Houses of Parliament in London, injuring two pedestrians Tuesday in an incident British police are investigating as a terror attack.
It was the fourth vehicle-based terror attack in London in less than 18 months.
The driver of the car was arrested at the scene on suspicion of terrorism offenses. Few other details about him, his identity or a possible motive were released. No one else was in the car and no weapons were found with him.
The incident, which took place at 7:37 a.m. local time (2:37 a.m. ET), led to a large police operation and occurred close to the site of another terrorist attack in London last year. None of the pedestrians' injuries are life-threatening. 
In a news conference, police said the suspect was not cooperating with investigators. London Assistant Police Commissioner Neil Basu said the crash appeared to be a "deliberate act," that no other suspects have been identified and that there is no "intelligence" of further danger to London.
British Prime Minister Theresa May nevertheless convened a meeting of the government's COBRA emergency committee to discuss the incident. 
The Houses of Parliament are ringed by steel and concrete security barriers.
An unnamed eyewitness told British broadcaster the BBC the driver "drove at speed" toward the barriers and that his actions looked intentional. The eyewitness said the car appeared to swerve into a pedestrian crossing before slamming into the barriers.
Britain's capital has been subject to a series of terrorist attacks in recent years.
In June 2017, seven people were killed and dozens injured when three men — eventually shot and killed by police — rammed pedestrians with a car at London Bridge and then went on a stabbing rampage at nearby Borough Market. The Islamic State militant group later claimed responsibility for the attack.
Also in June last year, a British man drove a van into Muslim worshippers near Finsbury Park Mosque, in north London. A man who earlier collapsed near the scene died. Investigators concluded the attacker, who was jailed for murder, developed an extreme hatred of Muslims.
Twenty-two people were killed and hundreds injured during a bombing attack at the end of an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester in northwestern England in May 2017. The Islamic State group claimed the 22-year-old British perpetrator of Libyan descent as one of its own.
The area where Tuesday's assault occurred was the site of a terror attack in March 2017, when three people — a police officer and two civilians — were killed and dozens wounded by a lone attacker near Britain's Parliament. Khalid Masood was shot and killed by police after he slammed a car into crowds on Westminster Bridge and then stabbed and killed the police officer and two tourists before being shot dead in a courtyard outside Parliament. The Islamic State militant group claimed responsibility for the attack.

On Tuesday morning a 24-year-old woman’s life still hung in the balance after she was stabbed on Saturday in the town of Burgwedel in Lower Saxony. After undergoing an emergency operation she was placed in an artificial coma.
The woman and her boyfriend had reportedly become involved in an argument with a group of three teenagers from Syria.
When the situation turned aggressive, the woman attempted to intervene, but one of the teenagers pulled out a knife and stabbed her.

On the same day in Bochum a 15-year-old schoolboy was stabbed during a fight involving around 20 teenagers. A 16-year-old from Syria was arrested over the attack. The victim was treated in hospital but his situation is not life threatening.

A day earlier, at Wiesbaden central station an argument escalated between two groups of men.
One of them pulled a knife and left three others injured.
The suspected culprit is from Afghanistan.

In Flensburg an Afghan teenager was arrested early this month on suspicion of stabbing a girl a year his junior to death. The teenager was said to have often visited his victim before the murder. That crime followed another brutal murder in December in the town of Kandel in Rhineland Palatinate where a 15-year-old girl was murdered by her ex-boyfriend, also an asylum seeker from Afghanistan.

And in Berlin early this month an Iraqi teenage German boy was arrested on suspicion of murdering a 14-year-old girl.
She was found dead in her apartment with several stab wounds.

At least seven knife attacks were recorded last weekend alone.
The prevalence of asylum seekers as suspects in these crimes has given voice to those who say that the government's liberal refugee policies have made the country less safe.
At the moment no numbers are given about how people were miuredered ( knife or gun or other)
For now a growing range of incidents with knifes occur, and most of them are committed by Asylumseekers.
The series of bloody incidents over the weekend come in the wake of two murderous stabbings by refugees in recent months, at least one of which appears to have been motivated by jealousy.
Its obvious that Merkels words, we can fix this, are no longer valid and there is a huge problem in our countries regarding the so called migrants.
How long before people take justice in their own hands and vigilants will roam the streets?

May 28, Luik Belgium.

In Luik (Liege) a man killed 2 female policeofficers near a cafe in the Augustin street in the centre of the town around 10.30 local time.
According to witnesses the man stabbed them in the back, stole their weapons and executed the helpless women, meanwhile shouting the well know Allah Akbar.....
He also killed a woman who refused to abandone her car, after shooting the woman he fled to a school and took a hostage there.
The day before he also killed an ex inmate.
Riot police arrived very quickley at the scene, when they neared the building the man ran outside and was shot dead immediately.
According to reports by the security services this man was radicalized, and allthough he was labeled as being agressive and dangerous nothing happened with that information.
Even stranger is it that he was on leave from jail, for resocializing...many civilans are worried and agry about these programs.
Just recently pedofile Marc Dutrouts lawyer called for early release (in his case he was a second offender with disastrous results)

May 5 , 2018

The Hague.

While festivals are being held to celebrate our freedom a man stabbed 3 people infront of a restaurant.
2 bystanders and a man on a bicycle, the wounded have been brought to a nearby hospital, none of them is in direct danger of dying.
While doing that the man (dressed in typical islamic clothing) shouted Allah Akhbar.....
However according to the police and the meir the 31 year old man (how surprising, a Syrian refugee) was only a mentally disturbed man.
Now where did we hear that before......

May 16,
New reports showed up with information that the police was warned about possible terrorist actions by the arrested man.
Nothing has been done with the report, a human error according to the justice department.
meanwhile everybody still speak about a "confused" man which has become a synonime for terrorist actions in the Netherlands.

It doesnt end.... another attack in paris.

This time caused by a Tjetsjenian aged 20 years aold.
Around 21.00 he drew a knife and stabbed at people randomly killing 1 and injuring 4, of whom 2 are in critical condition.
Many people hit the ground when police arrived afraid of getting caught in gunfire.
A policeofficer tried to take the man down with a taser, after that failed the attacker still wouldnt give up.
The police than shot him dead.
French president Macron reminded the French people about the good work of the French army against the terrorist threat and defending freedom.
"We will not stand down", he said.
The attack was claimed by DAESH.
