Fuck off. Clearly I don't know much about the layout of this particular building, so rather than being an asshole why don't you enlighten me?

Yes, I just read the article that said there is a train station connected to the building that can't be secured and that's where it happened so whatever. The article also mentioned that bags were being checked at the concert, but again, there is an unsecured train station in the building where it is impossible to maintain a constant security presence. The beauty of the internet is that as new details get released, you are able to get an idea of the bigger picture.

I assume if you're a local to the area, you knew all that already and just decided to be an asshole anyways. Forgive me for not knowing the exact circumstances of the situation, dick.

At least hes not dismissing them like the last guy did.

This is BS and you know it.

My local arena for example has a large foyer area with concessions, ticket sales and an assembly area that is a public area. You dont need tickets at this point so you dont go thru any security. I assume that it was similar to Manchester.
Its going to get to the point where will will have to rope off the whole city block to stop these kind of bombings.
I'm not sure there's any solution that doesn't invade people's privacy. I doubt anyone that uses the train station likes the idea of their bags being checked during major public events. Just a shit situation all around.

I realize you might be upset with the situation being it happen in Manchester but this is a website where people discuss and disagree on all sorts of things .Calm down and discuss.

Ah, you meant the initial time when he didn't take them seriously, not afterwards when he devoted infinitely more time and resources to actually fighting them. Gotcha.

Yep, he certainly did better down the stretch.
He made good use of drone strikes.

And can we please not act like being president of the most powerful country on Earth is not a full time job and then some? Idc who is President, Trump or Obama, there is a reason Obama's days were planned down to the minute. Trump seems more like a "I'm gonna wing it" kinda guy but point is, it's not like Obama was relaxing and some staffer was like "hey maybe you should check out this whole ISIS thing" and he was like, "ehhh I'll get to it when I get to it."

Well trump framed the argument well with the Saudis and other Muslim nations...this is good vs evil. I woulda taken a step further and spoke directly to the Islamic faith and said Wahhabism is pure satanic evil shit that has poisoned your religion. Because, well it's true.

Little bit...corruption crackdown is almost unheard of over there...Also another interesting change is the fact women will be able to drive in Saudi Arabia. The biggest thing holding back the Middle East is gender inequality. Itís absolutely brutal for women over there...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asia_Bibi_blasphemy_case

Bibi was convicted of blasphemy in 2010 for allegedly making derogatory remarks about Islam after neighbors objected to her drinking water from their glass because she was not Muslim. She always denied having committed blasphemy

Bibi had spent eight years on death row before the court overturned her conviction and ordered her to be freed.

further reading: Blasphemy: A Memoir: Sentenced to Death over a Cup of Water (2013, ISBN 1613748892).

ive followed this case...a small example of everything that is wrong with that culture and the middle east in general.

You'll find no argument from me on this one. I can talk shit about 'Murica all day but I'm thankful we don't live in an area like that.

This would be the equivalent of the Saudi's finding out what really happened to Kashoggi.
