For some reason the first thing I thought of when I heard this story was "What, only Americans stepped up?", not because I think that no one else did, but because I wonder if this is just being spun as an "Americans save the day!" story here in the US. The earliest article I read stated that the gunman was confronted by a Frenchman before the three subdued him but he wasn't named and no other story I've seen since has mentioned it. I'm not saying it didn't go down like it's being reported and I suppose it wouldn't have been as newsworthy an article for a US audience had Americans not been as involved as they appear to have been, but even I get tired of the stories about Americans saving the world and I *live* here.
