    Five dead, including gunman, in Tennessee military facilities shootings


    CHATTANOOGA, Tenn., July 16 (Reuters) - Five people were killed on Thursday including a suspected gunman who opened fire at two military-related facilities in Chattanooga, Tennessee in an attack local officials described as brazen, brutal and an act of domestic terrorism.

    CBS News quoted two law enforcement officials as saying the suspect was Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez. No motive has yet been given. The suspected shooter, who has not been officially identified, is believed to have lived in the area and acted alone, local police said.

    Rumors that ISIS said the attack was coming.

    We'll see if that pans out.

    It's a no brainer.

    The perp was acting at the behest and with the approval of ISIS.

    The punk in Charleston was acting purely alone and for his own reasons. call him a terrorist if you want. It doesn't bring back the dead, just makes you puff out your chest and think you're special. So what.:rolleyes:

    On the same day that four defenseless, unarmed Marines were killed by an Islamic terrorist, President and Michelle Obama issued a celebratory greeting to all Muslims worldwide. Though the timing of their announcement is uncertain, it appears the statement from the White House was issued just hours after the attack on two military facilities in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

    NewsMax brought us the happy greeting:

    As authorities investigate a deadly attack in Tennessee as a potential case of terrorism, which occurring on the heels of several attacks across the globe in recent weeks, President Barack Obama issued a statement Thursday wishing Muslims a happy Ramadan.


    Michelle and I would like to extend our warmest wishes to Muslims in the United States and around the world celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr,” the statement reads. “As Muslims mark the end of the month, they are reminded that Ramadan is a time to reflect spiritually, build communally, and aid those in need. While Eid marks the end of Ramadan, it marks a new beginning for each individual — a reason to celebrate and express gratitude on this holiday.”

    Islam is the religion of peace so this had nothing to do with Islam and nothing to do with Ramadan a ding dong, okay?

    watching the news last night the local tv anchorman couldn't pronounce his name (was painful to watch), then went on to say no one knew what his motivation was :BangHead:

    Exactly. Some people say that we should assimilate before we immigrate anymore but that is just white privilege talking. We know that Islam is the religion of peace and we know that Allah gives special favors to devout followers during Ramadan-a-ding-dong but we don't know what the motivation was in this case.
