Almost 1 out of 5 foreign military students in the US are part of a Saudi program to improve its crappy military logistics.— DSA Striker Is Amazing (@AarickStriger) December 7, 2019
This is being coordinated by the Trump administration in an attempt to make Saudi Arabia a meat shield for Israel against Iran. https://t.co/IvaPuaRio2
If he had been killed by an Iranian, we would be at war right now, but since it was another Saudi terrorist who Trump let into the United States it will be memory holed https://t.co/Dm5exBYfnG— EMPEROR WHITEPILL (@CptBlackPill) December 7, 2019

I didn’t have time to write about this yesterday.
Obviously though, it is devastating for the carefully constructed narrative that Iran is the greatest threat we are facing in the Middle East when a Saudi terrorist does a mass shooting on American soil and six other Saudis stand around and film the entire thing!
“Six Saudi nationals were reportedly detained for questioning after a Saudi Arabian aviation student killed three people and injured eight when he opened fire at the Pensacola Naval Base on Friday. The New York Times reports that while they believe the shooter acted alone, at least some of the Saudi nationals called in for questioning were seen filming the entire shooting. No one has confirmed if any of them were involved. SITE Intelligence, a group that monitors jihadist activity, also reported that a man with the gunman’s name, which was identified by the Times as Mohammed Saeed Slshamrani, posted a Twitter message hours before the shooting in which he referred to the U.S. as a “nation of evil” for its support of Israel. …”
“The Saudi man who shot and killed three people on a naval base in Florida on Friday did not have any ties to international terrorist groups and appears to have been self-radicalized, according to an initial assessment from American intelligence and counterterrorism officials.
The gunman, identified as Second Lt. Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, was killed by a sheriff’s deputy who responded to the attack. Lieutenant Alshamrani was training to become a pilot and initially entered the United States in 2018, according to a senior American official who has been briefed on the investigation’s initial stages. But at some point Lieutenant Alshamrani returned to Saudi Arabia and then re-entered the United States in February 2019, the official said. …”
“WASHINGTON — Top U.S. defense and military officials on Saturday reaffirmed America’s continued commitment to and relationship with Saudi Arabia after a Saudi Air Force student’s deadly attack at a Navy base in Florida.
Defense Secretary Mark Esper and others attending a security conference in California played down any initial impact on U.S.-Saudi ties. President Donald Trump described a conciliatory conversation with the Saudi king.
But the shooting also is testing the allies’ ties just months after the Trump administration delivered substantial military aid to Saudi Arabia to counter threats from Iran.
“I spoke with the king of Saudi Arabia. They are devastated in Saudi Arabia,” Trump told reporters Saturday as he left the White House on a trip to Florida. …
A U.S. official told The Associated Press on Saturday that Alshamrani hosted a dinner party earlier in the week where he and three others watched videos of mass shootings. And one of the three students who attended the dinner party videotaped outside the building while the shooting was taking place, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity after being briefed by federal authorities. Two other Saudi students watched from a car, the official said. “
I can’t even.
Do you realize where we would be right now if an Iranian terrorist was responsible for this? We nearly got frogmarched into a war with Iran this summer over a drone that was shot down over the Persian Gulf. We attacked Syria twice for doing nothing.
Aren’t you ready to go attack Iran for the sake of Israel and Saudi Arabia in a regional conflict which has nothing to do with us? You would think this terrorist would have launched the jihad in his own country given the fact that Saudi Arabia is Israel’s ally.
Trump’s absurd Muslim travel ban allowed this Saudi terrorist to come here while blocking Iranians who aren’t terrorizing Americans. The terrorist was being trained here to fight Iran which is the only major country in the region which DOES NOT produce the terrorists who kill Westerners. Iran is a problem for Israel and Saudi Arabia, not for us.
