Well done, Marines.

Except that the suspect is still wasting oxygen, but we can't have everything.
A group of unarmed US Marines on board a high-speed train between Amsterdam and Paris foiled a terrorist attack after a gunman opened fire with an assault rifle, wounding three people.

The 26-year-old Moroccan national, who was known to security services, came out of the toilet brandishing the gun and opened fire. Fortunately, two US Marines were nearby and overpowered him before he could massacre passengers. 
Unfortunately, one of the Marines was shot and is believed to be in a critical condition.

Now let's see how the administration handles this - heroism worthy of a medal or discipline for unauthorized aggression against a foreign government? Third choice is to try and sweep it under the rug.

stay safe.
