Fox news has broken in with coverage, still very few details, possibly 2 explosions at a Ariana Grande concert, Fox is saying they don't know much but there are reports of multiple fatalities.

    Now they say 15 dead and 50 injured. Not in the arena, but outside near box office someplace between lobby and underground train station.

    Per the Guardian, police confirm 19 dead, as many as 50 wounded (no elaboration as to conditions of the wounded), in an incident that police are "treating as a terror attack".

    I think where is was detonated is why the early reports by people inside the concert thought they heard a muffled sound and described as balloons or speaker popping.

    Lots of kids there and about, sick bastards who did this need to be drawn and quartered.

    Any country/person that still wants to let those Muslims pour in (radicalized or not) needs their collective heads examined.

    Well, you can examine their heads if you want, but you won't like where they're keeping them....

    Even Putin sent his condolences. Muslims are going to find themselves to be a
    people without a country, if they don't start rejecting these terrorists from their ranks.
    This looks bad on all of them.

    My bet is the UK populace is starting to reconsider refugee and weapons laws, both.
  • coolgunguycoolgunguy Senior Member Posts: 6,626 Senior Member
    They're saying 22 dead now. The injured count stands at 59. Having watched some of the video, I wonder if some of the victims died or were injured in the panic afterwards as opposed to the actual bombing itself?

    ^ What he said.

    I sometimes wonder if society in general and the muslim community in particular will ever reach the point where their tolerance for this type of atrocity will transcend the PC crap and their different religious beliefs and the world will unite to stop this type of thing.

    I'll bet Jolly Old England is overjoyed that they welcomed Islamic "Refugees" into their country now....stay tuned, more to come. And more can be expected here in the States as well.

    Ah, but the PC crowd still doesn't get it - and many of them never will.

    If they do get it ... it may be like the victims in Manchester got it. Now that does mean even one of is couldn't fall victim to something like Manchester here on US soil but at least we are going to be watching and try to avoid it ... but a few on guard can't prevent everything. PC is going to run blocker for ISIS or other types to run their end sweep attacks.

    Once in any EU country or born there they can play checkers and go to one then another and then to Ragland and back, train up and return and wreak havoc.

    So...here are some things.

    ISIS will claim responsibility for every attack. Even if they had no influence and the "Lone Wolf" was radicalized by another group. To them it is win-win. As they say in the marketing world, you can't put a price on free advertising. And, that is what attacks like this are.

    The other thing is this. People are going to jump on the refugee horse and attempt to ride that pony into the ground. But, that is not where the US and Britain are losing at. Most of the attacks are coming from radicalized citizens. This bomber was born in Manchester. He was already in the country. So how do you stop a Salman Abedi before he commits the act? It is the same in the states, how do we stop a Ted Kaczynski or Omar Mateen before they commit there acts. We could stop all immigration into our countries, but that doesn't suppress the religion that is radicalizing people.

    Until we can crack that code, ISIS and AQ will continue to strike. They don't have to waste resources getting agents into the country. All they have to is continue to grow agents already inside the borders l
