    Manchester has been bombed several times in the past by the IRA, but this is the first time anyone died.

    Maybe everyone should take off their shoes and walk through an x-ray machine before entering an arena for a concert. But we should still allow anyone to enter the country if they want to.

    If it is terror, (and it certainly looks like it) I am surprised it has taken them this long to hit a large arena or event.
    It would be so easy to park 4-5 trucks full of explosives outside of a football stadium, for example. You get double the carnage. Injuries from impact, and injuries from people crushing each other as they try to leave.
    I get disgusted when people speak of the sophistication and intellect of terrorists. Yeah, flying a plane into a building took lots of smarts.
    Killing a bunch of young teenagers, probably mostly girls, is truly sick.
    Not one of my liberal Facebook friends have even acknowledge it. They are too busy making fun of Trump's visit, Melania supposedly pulling away from him, and Ivanka's hat.

    It's so frustrating that we have this **** happening over and over. But was can't call it Islamic terrorist attack. That we need to help the refugees from those hot bed terrorist countries. When will the left realize that we're in a war. We have to do whatever it takes to kill all those cockroaches and we don't need the left telling us that we need to be politically correct. No more arguing from an emotional stand point. Let's just destroy them now that we have the president that lead from behind out of the way.

    This crap can't just be a part of our lives now.

    I agree in wondering when normal citizens on the left will wake up. But the true powers that be behind the Left's policies are not nearly as dumb as they seem.

    They want the doors to their countries wide open without proper security checks. They know exactly what they're doing letting these people in and are fully aware it will eventually create a militarized society full of mass casualties.

    As threats and chaos expand, the Left is able to demand more money and power from the people. More people will require entitlements and big gov will get more authority to help secure the public. Power and money.

    I mean really, disarm the public as you invite in a terrorist culture that hates Western society...this was no accident with good intentions.

    Every Islamic terror attack in our country...the Left is responsible and has blood on their hands. This type of atrocity happens and we have activist judges refusing to let our prez protect us against refugees that our intel says we can't vet. People will die as a result.

    Every criminal illegal let back onto our streets because of sanctuary protection and then harms a citizen...Left is to blame and has blood on their hands.

    Our prez is out kicking *** and taking names abroad and all the TVs in the gym are littered with Trump bashing by MSM. It's just sickening.

    The Left's policies needlessly kill massive numbers of Americans. They have no ethics or morals. There's no unconditional desire for our country to prosper. They want success only under their policies and leaders (which rarely happens), if not America must suffer.

    I've had it with these sick, morally-bankrupt leftist f*cks. They're gonna need to be handled at some point. They have aligned with the enemy to threaten our safety.

    Not really.

    His 2016 statements were a recognition that terrorism risk is a fact of life for mega-cities as easier soft targets. As long as there is Islamic radical ideology, "winning the war" is impossible thus big cities need to continue to be vigilant for these events.

    RIP for the victims but not the coward who perpetrated the act. Wherever he rests I hope there is a "hell" for him to endure.

    That is weak.

    It is not a "fact of life" just because people like you are too weak to fight. It is the result of letting muslims into the city, however.

    "Winning" against these lowlifes has been done in the past, and will be done again.

    Life was so much easier during the Crusades era, huh? Or when all the Muslims congregated under the banner of the Ottoman empire? Now these "lowlifes" could be living next door to you.

    If people like you continue to let muslims in the country, those lowlifes might live next door. The fact that you are willing to give away the country to scumbags is obviously a deep seated psychological problem with which you need to address.

    The Manchester bomber was a child of refugees
    The parents were escaping Gaddafi
    They were welcomed by the British people

    SH, are you still wanting to allow refugee's into our country? If your answer is still yes, then the above post shows just how far away you are from reality.

    Do we know why the parents chose to escape Libya and go to Britain? Could it possibly be that the parents were radical Islamists and Gaddafi wanted to reign them in? If so, why not relocate to a country tolerant of radical Islam....like Britain?

    Then justify your position instead of finding cute, irrelevant pictures to post. Explain how letting a class of people into the country that have no respect for America and Americans, and are unwilling to acculturate, is more important than the lives of your children and the future of the U.S.

    edit -- Cosmopolitan was shamed into deleting their article conflating Sikhs with Muslims. But no apology
