Somebody knows something. 

Not really sure what you're saying here.  I haven't heard of any motive or warning signs yet.

Four people are dead after a UPS truck was commandeered following an attempted armed robbery on South Florida's glitzy Miracle Mile on Thursday, leading police on a two-county rush-hour chase that ended in a hail of gunfire, authorities said.

Looks like two of the deaths may have been innocent bystanders 😥

What are you suggesting is the "obvious wrong" here? Allowing non-American citizens to train along side our troops?

 

What are your thoughts then on the non-Americans that enlist?

 

Or the Iraqi fighters that serve alongside our troops in the Middle East?

Yep. It would have been the topic of endless GOP tweets. A wall wouldn't have stopped this nor 9/11. That nation isn't really our ally.

I agree. And liberals wouldn’t have any issue when the president saying the mexican president is sad and disgusted with the attack, and jump to conclusions about why we have so many saudies training in our military, ect.

 

Silliness.

i am not, i agreed with what @SkinsGoldPants said. He mentioned the GOP. If this was a mexican i’m sure he would be trumpeting up the need to protect our borders, as he has done in the past.

Unless there is some evidence the Saudi government ordered this mass murder, or are somehow responsible, it makes little sense to blame the entire nation for the actions of one person.  Have I missed evidence that suggests Saudi Arabia was behind this crime?

Saudi Arabia’s government is being blamed for the actions of the people in power.  And Trump and co. are being blamed for their glaring double standard and coddling Bonesaw and the rest and acting as the Saudi government’s spokespeople.

Elements in the Saudi Government are known to support extremists and terrorists. Would it surprise you if it was found out that some knew?

 

That Trump and Pompeo are acting as their PR consultants is quite pathetic. Let your investigators do their jobs before reputation laundering for a regime that recently had an American journalist hacked to death with a bonesaw.

Thank you for your service.

 

Lets not lose sight of the victims as we rush to blame a group before the investigation happens.

Tying the government to this shooting as an example of why they can’t be trusted falls somewhere between ignorant and xenophobic.

Everyone has a double standard.  You seem upset that a thief isn’t stealing from everyone. Or that a murderer isn’t murdering everyone. Or that a sinner isn’t always sining.

 

 

MEH.

actually, you didn't get the point of my post.

 

The point was that not only is this further proof of how stupid a wall is (border defense is needed and should be created with cutting edge tech that isn't a standing monument to Trump), this is proof to another post after of how quickly Trump jumps to defend a nation he probably is in major debt to. If this were any other Muslim nation. Watch out.

 

The Saudi gov't pays extremists to not attach them and in return, they don't try to eliminate the extremists. Even if they fly planes into our buildings or sneak through the system on our military bases.

 

Mexico is more of an ally than they are. That's a reality.
