More Domestic Criminal Terror! and Silence Following?


By jimstaro - Posted on 18 August 2010

One wonders, not really very hard, why we readily call others, who have done nothing, 'terrorist', just because of where they might be from or their religious beliefs, and we get never ending opinion talk and pure propaganda {lies} about as a whole group and not the extremist using, yet something like this happens and it gets very little news play. You have to search it out rather then hear anyone report on or seriously talk about. A most certainly 'domestic criminal terrorist' act seemingly hell bent on taking out as many police or innocent people as possible, all because, apparently, he's a white guy in Texas. Will he become the new hero of certain groups within our society, much like the Austin Pilot Did or others that seek to be the next McVeighs as Individuals or in Groups!!

Police seeking motive for Texas gunman's attack

18 August 2010 - A gunman who pulled into a suburban Dallas police station parking lot with a trailer loaded with explosives, set fire to his pickup truck, then started shooting at the building was apparently hoping for a massacre, police say.

In the end, only the gunman — identified by police as 29-year-old Patrick Gray Sharp — was killed.

"He had a plan. He was activating his plan. He was heavily armed," Kowalski said. "He looked like he knew what he wanted to do. What we don't know is why he wanted to do it."

Sharp may have intended to lure people from the police station so that he could shoot at them from a field across the street where he had taken position, Kowalski said. He also may have intended to kill them by blowing up the trailer, he said.

The fire set off ammunition in the truck but failed to ignite the trailer, which was filled with wood chips, ammonium nitrate, gasoline and road flares, Kowalski said.

Investigators found an assault rifle, a shotgun and a handgun on Sharp. Kowalski said Sharp fired at least 100 rounds at the police station, and the chief counted at least 23 bullet strikes on the building.

The chief said Sharp was found dead after police fired an unknown number of rounds while pursuing him in a line of trees where Sharp had taken cover and into an open field near Collin College, which was on lockdown after the shooting.

He said he and Sharp kept guns in their residence because they like sports shooting.

"We're Texans," he said. "We have the right to bear arms." {read more}

What will be the most hyped News and Opinion talk for the rest of the week, the grossly intolerant speak and actions as to Mosque's, not only in New York city, but around the Country or much mention of this seemingly lone Domestic Criminal Terrorist in Texas? Will reports brush his actions off as 'free speech' as the Austin Pilots for whatever twisted thoughts led him to plan this out and implement? Will the self described 'Jesus?' believers keep their Intolerant and Unconstitutional rantings pointed at a place of worship and community, many around the country, that they themselves would find nothing wrong with if it was of their twisted religious beliefs, but of course it isn't?

Tens of Thousands, if not Hundreds of Thousands, have been killed and Their Countries Destroyed as well as Millions made Refugee's since a certain day of death and destruction in this country, and yet a certain element of mindset wants to continue creating hatreds as they act and sound just like those, they label All extremist, they condemn!

Iraq's Refugee's and the Iraqi People

Accountability must also be brought, but that just minimizes what may come from all the destruction carried out, and so far the Brits and a few others have seen that need!

The UK can only gain by helping Iraqi refugees

August 17, 2010 - On July 20 Eliza Manningham-Buller, the director general of the United Kingdom’s MI5 Security Service from 2002 to 2007, spoke before the Iraq inquiry committee set up by former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown and chaired by Sir John Chilcot to examine the lessons learnt from the Iraq conflict. Manningham-Buller stated that the Iraq war “was a highly significant factor in how ‘home-grown’ extremists justified their [violent] actions.”

The image of the UK has been considerably tarnished since the Iraq war began. Time and again, convicted terrorists in the country and abroad have cited it as a key radicalizing factor which tipped them toward violent action. But the British government has an opportunity to turn the tide. If it can take certain steps to aid and reach out to both the Iraqis and the British affected by the war, the British government can restore the trust lost and eliminate some extremists’ justifications for violence – however misguided they might be.

Furthermore, of the refugee population of nearly 2 million people, according to various estimates, 40 percent are children and 60 percent are younger than 25. The war has therefore created an underclass within Syria and Jordan which will not go away for decades to come and whose experiences will only serve to fuel radical action against those countries who participated in the Iraq war.

In order to address the Iraqi refugee issue, the UK must lend its support and provide aid to countries like Turkey, Jordan and Syria to ensure that refugees have access to medical care and basic services, including education and vocational training, so that they can be ensured a dignified future. Providing basic skills training and support will also leave a positive legacy in the refugee camps where there is much despair. Without hope, these individuals can become caught in a cycle of violence and retribution.

We are all aware of the deeply entrenched positions that people hold on the invasion of Iraq. The work of redressing the war’s effects needs to continue, not only to bridge the divide between Muslim- and non-Muslim-majority countries, but to give those whom the war affected a sense of hope for the future through small steps toward building a solid, long-term foundation of trust. {read more}

I've had news outlets on since this happened, actually even as reports were coming in about the college nearby that was under lock down. There were some single reports following and seem many today, online, but heard Nothing on Local nor National about this this morning.

Yet plenty of reports, still, on the Mosque's and virtually all those leaving out what this country is supposed to be and leaning heavily as to condemnation of a whole religious ideology with plenty of mention of 9/11 and Nothing as to the years since!
