This might not be appropriate to ask but. Why the hell are kids going to a concert alone on a school night? That kind of baffled me I mean it was a school night right?

3 million vs 44 million

Which one do you think is going to have more terror attacks?

Schools are already out here. Not sure how they do it across the pond.

Some of my teacher friends in the US are on their last week or two of school before summer break, I know nothing of Britain school schedules, though.

Nothing to zee here just cultural enrichment from religion on peace. This was posted hours earlier on twitter. The account is now suspended.




I'm curious if the MSM will cover this or focus on Drumpf eating steak with ketchup.

Already arrested someone.
$5 says both he and the suicide bomber were known to British intelligence. Funny they always know whose door to kick in less than a day after these things happen.

But the U.S. does have this problem on the same, or even larger, scale. It's just that most of the attacks in the U.S. are carried out with guns rather than bombs.


Bumpedy bump.

Also, you guys do realize the overwhelming majority of these attacks are by people born in the country in question, yes?


Majority of mass shootings in the US are gang or drug related, you can't compare a drive by to a suicide bombing.
And yeah, the majority of terror attacks are committed by 2nd generation immigrants that tend to be more prone to extremism and crime than their parents. Studies show that is due to lack of integration from mass immigration creating cultural bubbles within the host country.

What happen to Trumps secret plan to defeat ISIS in 30 days? Should we chalk this up as a failure or just a lie?

I guess dropping a MOAB didn't seem to scare them into submission back to the drawing board I guess

Sorry but I have to disagree somewhat you look at the top 10 mass shooting in the US and none had anything to do with gangs or drugs and more with mental health issues

That would be because you looked up the 'top ten mass shootings', obviously its going to be in terms of casualties. The vast majority of mass shootings ends with just a few people injured, not killed.
Although I suppose it depends on which definition of 'mass shooting' you use. The media likes to change it some times depending on what narrative they are trying to push.

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/may/23/mass-shootings-tracker-analysis-us-gun-control-reddit


Few of the incidents resembled the kinds of planned massacres in schools, churches and movie theaters that have attracted intense media and political attention. Instead, the analysis, defined purely by the number of victims injured, revealed that many were part of the broader burden of everyday gun violence on economically struggling neighborhoods.

44 million only if you count in Russia and Turkey. About 16 million Muslim live in the EU.

That seems to be the case with every mass killing regardless of strip lately. Facebook and Twitter need a "Report Insane Manifesto" button.

Tragedy = Ratings. This is emblazoned across every MSM site and will be for days. From a purely cynical standpoint its actually good for Trump to get the spotlight off him. Long as he doesn't do anything to get it back.

On the flip side, the former CIA director is set to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee in 45 minutes so who knows where the news cycle will be by the afternoon depending on what he says.

If I were counting Turkey and Russia it would be around 130 million

I continue to be surprised that people don't realize we're still in the midst of the largest humanitarian crisis in modern history with the Syrian civil war. Its not like there's a mass migration of refugees into Europe just for the fun of it. As long as you have Assad, you're going to have this. And as long as you have Russia and Iran backing Assad, you're going to have Assad.

And as long as you have such a chaotic movement of human population you're going to have those trying to take advantage of it.

Borders and immigration aren't the problem, they're only a symptom.
