A gunman fired upon thousands of people attending a music festival on the Las Vegas Strip Sunday night, in a brutal attack that is blamed for at least 58 deaths, police say. In the mass shooting and panic that ensued, 515 people were injured. At least one of the dead is an off-duty police officer who was attending the concert.

Editorializing: Interesting how media always emphasize ISLAMIC terrorists, but downplay domestic terrorism as psychologically disturbed individual lone-wolfs.

    The stupidity on this board is incredible.

    WWII (or rather, America's entry into it), for one, wasn't started by a Democrat, it was started by a Japanese invasion.

    And Iraq I wasn't a "war"? Holy shit, you're stupid.

    You apparently have no idea the extent to which Roosevelt maneuvered the Japanese into a corner with sanctions and by ignoring overtures for peace. []
