If it is, cue up the boilerplate response......declare outrage, light candles at a vigil, pile up teddy bears, then the govt will declare that it's not representative of Islam.....and to show our tolerance, they will increase the refugee numbers.

So how long do we wait in false pretense until what we know to be true is confirmed to be so?

Apparently not long.

The really sad/typical thing is almost literally as soon as it happened SJWs were on the Twitter-verse trying to spin a yarn about how it was "speakers" blowing or "balloons", and totally not their pet Koranimals and their religion of pieces.

These people are so fucked in the head.

It was clearly those damned Scottish separatists. The religion of peace would never do this.

People here in the US still think those apes can be reasoned with and find ways to rationalize their behavior. The sheep actually come up with ways to defend them. Americans are apathetic and could care less with their short-term attention spans. Until those types of things begin happening here on a regular basis, the sheep won't accept them as a threat.

Sadly, that is what it will take.

Even then, they still wouldn't. They'd do some mental gymnastics and come up with all manner of reasons why it's "our fault that they are doing this to us."

Does Trump head to London as a sign of solidarity?

Gents, the bodies of children are not even cold yet. I would suggest that turning this into a "What Should POTUS Do?" thread is in poor taste.

This is so sad. We have no real information coming out of Manchester and yet ex-CIA Director Woolsey just said on Fox News that this is clearly the fault of President Trump. He openly declared war against the extremist and we did not have these types of incidents in the 8 years under President Obama.

Even Sheppard Smith was stunned by that, cut him off and said that it was a bit to soon to start blaming people.

We don't know what happened, why it happened or how it happen but clearly it is already President Trumps fault.

Prayers for all of those affected by this .... whatever this is.

I pray that one day I can be of service to the world again and fight these people again. Like said above, this won't change for a long time. God bless the special ops guys over there right now, surrounding them and besieging them, so that they don't make it to the west to do these sorts of things.

Prayers for the dead and wounded, and for the people who have to work to prevent this type of thing.
