4 years ago today Lee Rigby was decapitated in London. Rigby was a British Soldier. This could be a coincidence.

Yes, pure happenstance. Nothing to see here.

Prayers for the families that lost folks and a quick recovery to those injured.

Hopefully, the Brits get a clue and figure out a way to actually deal with the crap they have brought upon their people, but I am not holding my breath.

Most of them were just fucking kids...

Normal, everyday thing for a major city right Mr. Mayor?

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.
Wanted to correct this since apparently my listening comprehension is off. Apparently Woolsey was FOR President Trump. Still not sure how I misunderstood it but apparently people are up in arm on Twitter AGAINST Shepard Smith for cutting him off.

Either way - there is no reason to make this political when we don't even have ANY information on what/when/where etc..

A couple days ago, I watched a video produced by the former Minister of Equality for the UK (a real position created by PM Blair). He recognized that the diversity programs championed by liberals hadn't worked as intended because--wait for it--human nature tends to make people cluster in similar ethnic groups. He acknowledged that this provided fertile ground for disgruntled young men of certain ethnic backgrounds to become radicalized (although he used a more oblique reference to it). While he recognized the problem, he didn't have any solution to propose. Not surprising.

This is the same singer who in 2015 said "I hate Americans, I hate America", right? Same girl? I don't know anything about her other than that's what popped up when I searched Google.

She looks like a 16 year old kid but she's 23. She's of Italian descent and is from Miami but passes herself off as Hispanic because being ethnic is more popular than being white. She's an outspoken advocate of all the extremist leftist causes - gay rights, animal rights, drug legalization, immigrant rights, America is bad, blah blah blah - and is generally popular with teens, preteens, and dirty old men. She follows the Britney Spears model of success via dressing like a burlesque queen, prancing around on stage like a stripper, and counting on the visual distraction and autotune to mask any gaps in talent. She hops from one leftist activist cause to another based either on the latest movie she has seen or what is currently popular on social media. In summary: she looks like jailbait but isn't and would be quite attractive if she would just shut her piehole but won't.

Crystal ball says: This attack will in some way be used by said singer to further a personal agenda predicated on a poor understanding of islamic extremism.

RIP to the victims and the families of those who lost loved ones. The sick, perverted bastards who perpetrated this need to be publicly executed.

I guess Saudi Arabia's new 'Terrorist Monitoring Center' didn't see this coming....

Targeting an Grande concert is to intentionally target young girls. More splash for the bang. This is just plain terror stripped down to its most base version yet.

If you consider how the British Muslim population sympathetic to ISIS views women and proper female behavior, I can see how that specific performance would be a target for them. Add in that a lot of that singer's fan base is composed of youngsters, and the terrorists' logic that dead children get more emotional reaction out of a terrorist attack, and I can definitely see why the bad guys would choose to attack where they did instead of an Irish Rovers concert. Still, those who committed this act as well as their active and passive supporters need to die a quick and unnoticed death, including the spineless politicians who enabled the situation.

Those of you who think this thread is your opportunity to try and score cheap political points, need to chill out.

People have lost children or a brother or sister or maybe a parent.

Get some perspective and act like an adult please.

You are right. I'm sorry for my tone this morning. That was childish of me to attack a person who had nothing to do with the incident, based solely on a one-time comment.

I hope that the families affected by this find comfort. And I hope that somehow, this nonsense stops.

RIP to the victims and my thoughts are with the families. They just named an 8 year old little girl as one of the victims. Fuck the cowards to that did this.

Like virtually all the other incidents, the attacker was "known to authorities" prior to the attack.

Quote:
CBS News confirmed Tuesday that the man who blew himself up the previous night at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England, was 23-year-old Salman Abedi, who was known to British authorities prior to the attack.

What should happen now:

Trump: "Finish It."

Mattis: "Roger."

RIP to the victims. Fucking animals.
