"Evil Losers"

They've let him go off script to address the bomb attack in Manchester. But they've made him wear an earpiece through which they can override his brain.

At least they can try.  Looks like he took it out before speaking.


The bombers would think the name "monsters" is great - they would like that.  So from now on, just remember, they're losers.


Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas had spoken first.
Allow me at the beginning to condemn the horrible terrorist attack that occurred in the British city of Manchester … I do offer my warm condolences to the prime minister of Britain, families of victims and the British people.

Theresa May, right wing British PM, was more in line with the tRump:
Speaking outside Downing Street after charing an emergency Cobra meeting, May said :“All acts of terrorism are cowardly attacks on innocent people, but this attack stands out for its appalling, sickening cowardice, deliberately targeting innocent, defenceless children and young people who should have been enjoying one of the most memorable nights of their lives,.”

All US and British remarks on terrorism take pains to call terrorists cowards. That always strikes me as juvenile and weird. It doesn't do anything to prevent future attacks. It sounds so lame and hopeless. We can't prevent them or strike back in any meaningful way, so we call them cowards. That'll fix 'em.

They're not cowards. They're people trying to rebalance the world as they see it in a way that's abhorrent to us, but they're not cowards. It reminds me of the US military being unable to make quick work of the "evil" terrorist "cowards" in Iraq complaining that the insurgent guerillas wouldn't come out and fight like real men. Let's see - they're men in sandals who have old rifles and home-made bombs. Come out and show yourselves to soldiers in full warrior regalia, wearing helmets and bullet-proof vests, weilding the latest arms, with tanks and drones, you cowards.

A lot of impotent bluster from people incapable of stopping what their countries' foreign policies have created.
[May] also paid tribute to the others who had rushed to help, saying those “are the images that embody the spirit of Manchester and the spirit of Britain”.
When the people in Iraq and Afghanistan rush to help victims, the US and UK bomb them with more drones.
The White House said earlier that Trump was being updated on the attack by his national security team.

That crack bunch that has to draw pictures and repeat his name in memos to keep his attention?

As of this morning, it's still not clear who was responsible for the bomb.  Reports say it was a suicide bombing, and police have arrested another man "in connection with the attack."


Perhaps true.  They tend to claim every attack.
