One act like this erases it all and s'ets them back. A couple posters up there said they doubt there will be reprisals, and I do agree 100% they value religion over human life, but I am willing to bet we're going to see in the next month some cowardly attack from over there and they will say it's in retaliation for this. RIP to the fallen. hopefully his buddies don't get the payback over this.
Most likely. Any attack seems to be in retaliation for something. So they think to themselves of an event to make their claim, when in fact it's just another attack, they happen every day.

Claiming retaliation for an event basically (in their minds) gives the attack more legitimacy. Too bad most of their so called "retaliation" attacks are usually on afghan civilians as opposed to military. Doesn't make sense.

It isn't in retaliation. just a typical attack and they make their claim.
