A Thought On Terrorism In The USA

United States
June 16, 2016 9:18pm CST
Ok so now we have some information beginning to come out concerning the Orlando Massacre. Here are some things to think about for those who think that a temporary ban on allowing Muslims into the USA. 1. Orlando, much like the majority of Terrorist attacks, was a Person with Muslim Religious ties. 2. The attackers were US Citizens BUT their parents were not born in the US. (1st generation US born citizens.) 3. Each of the Terrorist attackers came from immigrant Parents who were allowed in with the present screening process. These three things alone support the reasoning behind more thorough vetting of those who wish to come here. Add to that that in many of the cases there is a connection to terrorist organizations ( California - Wife came on Fiancee Visa, Orlando Parents supportive of Taliban etc.) Now consider this: Not all were solely done with guns. Bombs were also used (made from easily purchased products). The terrorist attacks have increased here in the USA as well as in Europe since Obama has been in office. The targets are becoming more erratic and the 'cover' easier to make (Mental illness, Workplace Violence etc.) So what are your thoughts?

I really don't know what can be done. It is a scary mess.

We need to step up security and intelligence against terrorism. Profiling isn't enough. Intelligence agencies and different governments should share vital information and resources to combat terrorism. What happened in Orlando is horrific and in hindsight a lot of things could have done to prevent it. Right now, a more concentrated effort must be done to prevent further incidents such as the Pulse nightclub shooting.

what is alarming is that the attackers were identified suspects who still managed to get away with their complex attacks un-noticed - they were already questioned by the authorities

@arthurchappell Some of that (most) falls on the people in leadership. It has gotten worse since you can't take too long investigating them without being called out for discrimination, Racism etc.

@Berniezeitler as long as it is an investigation, with evidence, not just trying to bully people into a confession or using tortures like water-boarding

@arthurchappell The investigation is limited in time and scope. Both recent Terror Attacks were people known to the FBI but the administration sent down a directive to stop the investigation.

The Orlando attacker was born in the U. S. of immigrant parents. His father says he is appalled by what the son did. It's not as if this man was primed by his immigrant parents to do what he did. So, how do you vet potential immigrants concerning what their yet to be conceived offspring might do 30 years from now?

@RonElFran Actually if you were to research the man's father you would find that is exactly what is going on here. The son was primed for this and the father is using 'plausible deniability' to hide his actions. The father entered the US as a Taliban sympathizer and closet radical.

Muslim moderates don't want to be stereotyped as potential terrorists. I can understand their concern of not wishing to be lump among the extremists. But what constructive steps have they done to prevent the prejudice and bias arising from the actions of these radical groups?

@josie_ They have not done much. Reporting the terrorists among them would be helpful in eliminating the situation.

I am glad you mentioned these incidents have all happened on Obama's watch. How come 9/11 wasn't followed up during Bush's watch? After all Bush started the war.

you are right. The attacks have increased during Obama office. It should be viewed in the context of Syrian Crisis and the U.S.Presidential elections. I hid many things...The space may not be sufficient.
