UK Parliament Attack

Update 5:  ‘A guy ran past me and stabbed cop with big knife

Update 4: Sky News confirms 2 dead in attack.

Update 3: Attack comes exactly 1 year after Brussels attack.

Update 2: Statement from mayor of London.

Update 1:  Video from the scene (showing injured people).

One woman is confirmed dead.  As of now it is possible that there were two attackers, one who drove a large vehicle into a crowd and seriously injured about 10 people, and a second who stabbed a police officer and was shot by other officers.  It is of course possible it was one man who drove the vehicle, got out and then was shot.  We are waiting for more clarification.

There also is unconfirmed information that the incident was warned about in a 4chan internet post from yesterday.  Unconfirmed.

Trump’s First Military Strike Kills Dozens of Innocent Civilians

The Independent reports that President Trump’s first strike on terrorists killed at least 30 civilians including 10 women and children:

“Why kill children? This is the new [US] administration – it’s very sad, a big crime,” Nasser Al-Awlaki said. “[Nora] was hit with a bullet in her neck and suffered for two hours.” The Pentagon did not refer to any civilian casualties in its statement.

A U.S. Navy Seal was also killed in the attack:

The Pentagon did not say how the team’s one death occurred, and the U.S. military official declined to give details on the fatality.

President Obama was not sure the strike’s benefits would outweigh its rewards:

Obama administration aides had deliberated extensively over the proposed operation, weighing the value of any information that might be recovered against the risk to the Special Operations forces plunging into hostile territory. But administration officials ultimately opted to hand the decision on the mission to their successors.

Contrast a president who deliberated a long time before making a decision–who considered all the factors before executing a plan–with a president who does not want to sit and think things through. He wants to bomb first and ask questions later, regardless of who dies.

San Bernardino: Another Saudi Arabia Terrorist Attack

15 of the 19 9/11 hijackers were from Saudi Arabia.  28 pages of the 9/11 commission report regarding Saudi Arabia’s links to the attack were redacted and have never been made public.  This is probably because the Saudis likely financed most of the attack–a fact that would not look good for American leaders who enjoy a cozy relationship with the House of Saud.  After all, Osama Bin Ladin was a wealthy Saudi man who decided to murder innocent Americans.

20150119tu-Diplomacy-US-President-George-W-Bush-holds-hand-with-king-saudi-arabia-6446422Saudi Arabia, of course, was never held responsible for their terrorist activity in connection with 9/11.  I am sure their cozy relationship with the Bush family has nothing to do with any of it.

With the recent attacks in San Bernardino, we learn that terrorist Tashfeen Malik was radicalized in–you guessed it–Saudi Arabia.  This time around, some are calling for the Saudis to be held accountable for their documented funding of terrorists who are obsessed with killing Americans.  With Obama being nearly as cozy with the Saudis as Bush, however, I will not hold my breath.

Perhaps we can ask the UN human rights council, headed by human rights leaders in Saudi Arabia, to investigate.
