The Hulk is going to hunt terrorists. Sweet. (via RWN)

I was visiting Europe when all this happened and was in Munich soon after. I can tell you that this was as wrenching an experience as was the more recent attacks of 9/11/01. The world was shocked and united behind German and Isreali efforts to rescue those hostages and bring those terrorists to justice.

I remember some of the discussions at the time and the irony that it was middle eastern terrorism that finally brought Germans and Jews together in a common purpose. Germany of course was devistated that this happened during their shining moment as host of the Olympics - and to jews. They bent over backwards to put things right.

Funny though, after the terroirst attack was over I don't remember Isreal using it as a pretext to go invade and occupy another country unrelated to the incident. And with Hitler long out of power neither did Germany.
