Istanbul Terror Attacks


#1

Welp, it happened again, and again and again and again and again… How many does that make this year?
Expect the Pussy in Chief to downplay the attack and lecture everybody on islamophobia.

Miss Bush? I do.


#2

Wouldn’t expect anything more … This guy is such a pussy; the West is at war whether they admit it or not.

Again, government is failing us…


#3

This one will only get moderate attention. Maybe thirty seconds on your average news program. I don’t expect to see people proclaiming “We are Istanbul” on their social media page. Not that those types of gestures do anything but most won’t be bothered to care in the least, like Somalia before it. It doesn’t help the narrative.


#4

Any one know why ISIS would draw Turkey into war with them. After all, the Turks held their tanks and troops at bay while the Kurds & ISIS fought it out in Kobani. ISIS oil trucks carrying illegal oil have also been documented as going into Turkey on a daily basis. Turkey is also enemies with Russia who is helping Assad’s forces in Syria. So, WTF? Why would ISIS want to anger the Turks? Doesn’t make sense to me.


#5

A very respectful salute to the responding Turkish security forces for saving many lives by following the best strategy possible with active shooters: attack, attack, attack. A special salute to the security/police officer who physically tackled the piece of filth and prevented him from detonating in the crowd. He lost his life in the process.


#6

And lets not forget who these pieces of shit are trying to kill.


#7

Yep. Could you ever imagine Bush saying something as PC as this?

“These acts of violence against innocents violate the fundamental tenets of the Islamic faith. And it’s important for my fellow Americans to understand that. The English translation is not as eloquent as the original Arabic, but let me quote from the Koran, itself: [”]In the long run, evil in the extreme will be the end of those who do evil. For that they rejected the signs of Allah and held them up to ridicule.["] The face of terror is not the true faith of Islam. That’s not what Islam is all about. Islam is peace. These terrorists don’t represent peace. They represent evil and war. When we think of Islam we think of a faith that brings comfort to a billion people around the world. Billions of people find comfort and solace and peace. And that"s made brothers and sisters out of every race – out of every race."

He just can’t say the words radical Islamic terrorism.


#8

This haunting picture says it all. I have seen this look on the faces of victims in many places, from Sadar City to Helmand. Its always the same, its the innocents who die. I am so tired of this filth.


#9

Indeed he can’t. Our Academic-in-Chief is too busy giving his “fellow Americans” religious studies lectures when he should be calling these vermin by name, announcing that he plans on exterminating them, and directly asking for the help of Muslim ally nations to help do so.


#10

John Kerry says recent attacks have been carried out because ISIS is losing.


#11

Bush was wrong, idaho’s pictures represent the true picture of Islam throughout the ages.

But at least Bush took the fight to the Taliban. Right or wrong, we crushed the armies of Saddam, a powerful, lethally armed nation.

Obama does not have the will to do what must be done and lead a coalition crush the armies of ISIS. Now we withdraw our troops instead of striving for victory, or maintaining security leaving room for terrorists like ISIS to thrive. We release terrorists from Guantanamo so they can rejoin their allies in the field and continue to kill innocent people.

And if anyone thinks Bush toppling Saddam lead to the formation of ISIS, Obama toppled the secular dictatorship of Qaddafi and sent aid to terrorists in Syria to attempt to topple the secular dictatorship of Assad which directly lead to the rise and proliferation of ISIS across the globe.

If Bush was bad, Obama is worse.


#12

Obama is like a guy who has plenty of size strength and skill to fight, but absolutely no will to enter the fray. The US has the largest most powerful military on earth. Spy satellites that can see inside house windows, special forces that are inferior to none and a host of other tools at his disposal and absolutely no will to use them.

Every time someone dies from a terror attack Obama has blood on his hands. There is no other way to look at it. He has the means to slow down, or even prevent terrorism and does nothing. I’ve said it many times and will repeat it now Obama is the worst President in my lifetime.


#13

It’s easy to wave dicks and send Americans to die.

What EXACTLY are we supposed to “do” that we are not already doing?


#14

Mufasa if you think the US is doing all that it can to wipe out Isis you have been watching the mainstream liberal media too long.

I would like to make a bet with you. The next President whether it is Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, or even someone else (who knows in this crazy year) will destroy Isis in about one years time.

Bet?

I’m not saying there won’t be other splinter terrorist groups. But Isis will be decimated. And terrorism will not be as prevalent as it is now.

Either Obama does not want to kill Muslims, or he is actually afraid to enter into a conflict which he fears he cannot win. He is truly pathetic and should never be in the position that he is in.


#15

PLEASE let it be Donald Trump.


#16

And another rant against the President does not answer the question.


#17

Well, obviously we need to end the NRA and blame cis white males who dare be anything remotely close to republican.

Oh and theses attacks are obviously because the terrorists are self loathing Muslims.


#18

I think we should remind Christians that the Spanish Inquisition happened.


#19

I have an even BETTER plan than yours, CB.

Let’s increase the number of guns in the U.S. from 300 to 600 million because those Muslim-Loving Libs like the President are going to take them ALL away from us.

Let’s throw as many Americans as we can into a Centuries old conflict because stimulating the Coffin and American Flag business will not only show those Goat-Herders who is in charge…it will ultimately stimulate the economy.

Then let’s nuke the whole place for morbid.

That should take care of it, am I right?


#20

Can we get some government assistance here?

That’s going to be expensive, and I have good taste in firearms.

Also would like to request an ammo stipend.

EDIT: but regardless of who POTUS loves, I’m pro this plan. Serious, 100%.

I’m not going to argue the points you’re making here.

Yes, the West’s involvement in the ME contributes to the conditions that allow evil men to use religion to radicalize others into frenzied murderers.
