    Saudi student kills three at US naval base

    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-50692597

    The gunman who killed three people at a US naval base in Pensacola, Florida, was a Saudi student, officials say.

    He has been named as Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani - a Saudi military member in training at the site. He was shot dead by officials.

    The local sheriff's office confirmed eight others were injured in the attack including two officers. The shooter used a handgun.

    It is the second shooting to take place at a US military base this week.
    Too early to say it was terrorism related, but odds are it is.

    Looks like it was planned and he was not alone. Someone did not do his job vetting these "allies"

    Can you tell me why the US hates Shia terrorists and not Sunni terrorists? And yet, has there been a single Shia terrorist act in the US? I can't think of one. All the Islamic terrorist attacks in the US have been committed by Sunni's. Having said that, Americans are in greater danger of getting killed in a hot air balloon than from an Islamic terrorist attack...

    I've never been on a naval base. But my wife goes to a Walmart two to three times per week.

    I know which group of idiotic nutjobs I'm more concerned about.

    Because we hate Iran, but make gobbets of money off Saudi Arabia. It's not as though anyone in our government actually worries about terrorism. War is a matter for men of money to decide.

    Is this what you would say to the family of the victims?
