Because I'm not watching the news much anymore, I didn't know this had happened until I read a comment on the last post CC had written.
Went upstairs and turned on the TV. Pretty much Deja Vu in how the news covered it. I first turned to Fox, but as soon as I saw Shepard Smith was the talking head of the moment, I changed channels. I'm not listening to that whining champion of Islam, period. Switched over to the major networks, but couldn't find anything other than their normal asinine programming. Tried CNN, if only for some access to European news personnel, but Anderson Cooper was Contrived News Networks talking head, and I won't listen to him either.
Eventually I did find some coverage. Seems like the particular singer putting on this concert, of whom I have never heard, attracts the younger crowd. The audience was primarily made up of girls and young women, aged 6 -26, according to Sky News. So this terrorist was out to kill females and children. He used a suicide vest filled with nails and pieces of metal like small nuts and bolts. Looks like he left out the marbles on this one.
Until the various governments in the Western world start preemptive actions against Islamic terrorists, this kind of thing will just go on and on. I saw one commentator on an American news network piously explaining that in the West, we treat these events as "criminal", so we really can't do anything until after a crime has been committed. He sniffed and made a snide comment about "places like Russia' where the security forces act preemptively .
But it's easy for people like this creep on television to take the high road, since he didn't have any family at the arena. I always think of the attitude adjustment Geraldo Rivera got during the Paris attacks, when his daughter was missing there for several hours. He went from being a preachy, pro-Islamic fool to being a realist. " Trump is right, we've got to bomb these animals....." in one easy lesson.
The clip below is from the night of the terrorist attack on the concert in Paris. Geraldo wigged out and was all for bombing Islamic Terrorists. Shepard Smith just about wet his pants "oh, Geraldo, you can't say that! You are just upset". The best part of Geraldo's comments have been edited out of this clip, but it's all I can find on the web from that incident.
When the Europeans let the Islamists come flooding into their countries, they set themselves up for this. It started a long time ago, when England was withdrawing from her colonies after WW2, and France pulled out of North Africa in the 1950's. When the European Union decided to start letting in hordes of unvetted Moslems, it was the final nail in the coffin. Thanks, idiotic Socialist leaders and the people who voted for them.
I'm not overlooking the fact that our country elected Barrack Hussein for 8 years of rule, and he did the same thing just as fast and as hard as he could.
The people who bear the responsibility for what happened last night, and for all these attacks, are the political leaders who let it happen. The same is true here in America. The individuals who let this disease into western countries bear the total responsibility for the consequences.
I noticed this morning, on the little ticker going across the bottom of One America News, that Sweden has admitted 96% of murders committed in Sweden are committed by "foreigners." I wonder who they could mean?
So now, we'll go through the same routine. Then in a week or so, Manchester will disappear from the public consciousness, and the only people who will remember it will be those who lost loved ones, or those who were maimed, and their friends and family. It'll be business as usual for everybody else.
