    Default My thoughts on the Terrorism in San Bernardino

    I'm sitting here at my computer thinking about the events I saw yesterday and about the reporting of the horrible shooting in San Bernardino.

    It was like being back in the 60s or 70s! Reporters and cops groping to find answers in the dark!

    Remember Paris a couple of weeks ago? Within minutes, we were flooded with videos of what went on inside the theater and at the street side cafe. Muslim terrorism blared. Jihadis screaming Allah Akbar or whatever they do. For endless hours.

    Well, I had the TV on yesterday when the first reports came in. A horrible shooting by three people wearing hoods and dressed in combat gear shooting long rifles at a crowd. Within minutes, choppers were on scene showing us the massive presence of police.

    And the coverage went on and on for hours. Nothing but guesses. No videos or voices calling the outside world from within the building. Nobody there had a cell phone? Or iPad or anything similar?

    It was not until six hours later that I heard the word for the first time – TERRORISM! Six hours? What the hell is going on here with the media? And law enforcement? What makes them so fearful about saying it.

    This was not a spur of the moment event. Those people were prepared to enter that place to kill people. Not one or two but as many as they could.

    Workplace violence?

    Yeah. Right.

    Either law enforcement was stonewalling the media or they had direct orders not to say anything about the horror that wasn't politically correct. And the FBI showed up and took charge in one heck of a hurry. Did they know something they didn't want let out to the public?

    And of course, he see the White House, The Hildabeast, and other Leftists screaming, “Gun Control.”

    Well now, it's time for me to start my morning round of reading the news feeds at Drudge, BadBlue, and Feedly. Interesting to see what one will find.

    Right now – 4:30 am PST, we learn they are American-born MUSLIMS, a husband and wife team. And law enforcement STILL refuses to call it terrorism.

    There is much more than this on my blog, A Soldier's Stories @ A Soldier's Stories

    Comments welcome.

    I've determined that the word "terrorist " isn't used until it's proven with no shadow of a doubt that the perp was a muslim. I always have to wonder if the people involved in the CA shooting situation were scared. I'll bet they were full of terror. Doesn't that make it a terror attack whether or not the attacker was a muslim, Catholic, Lutheran, Jew? Maybe even atheist. The politically correct press seems to refuse to admit that the only terrorists at this time are muslim in general & radical islamists in particular. They're sure fast to label it a terrorist attack if they suspect the perp was a Christian right-winger. I still subscribe to the theory that if it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck it's a duck. I have been subconsciously profiling people my whole adult life.

    I heard something on TV today that I've been saying for a long time - "political correctness is going to kill us". Actually PC DID kill those 14 dead souls. The neighbor of the terrorists had been suspicious for quite some time with all the comings & goings that got her spidey senses alerted but since they were obviously middle eastern she was afraid she's be called a racist so she notified nobody. It tuns out that the garage where she saw all the activity was a bomb factory.

    Are all muslims terrorists or bad people? No. Are any other groups trying to kill us at this time? Again, no.
