What the fuck are you on about? They still don't know what caused the crash. And Trump's an idiot for assuming it's terrorism. About 50% of all plane crashes are due to pilot error, 25% of crashes are due to mechanical failure, 15% due to weather. The remaining 10% is "other" human error, some of which includes "terrorism". Point being, terrorism is one of the least likely reasons, and blaming it on that is not only dumb (as the numbers suggest), but just plain fear-mongering.

The fact is that the investigation into the downed plane is ongoing. Educated guesses are not conclusions.

On a related note, how does Trump intend to end terrorism, not just within America, but across the entire globe? Several weeks ago he claimed in a tweet that he is the only person who can accomplish this feat. What is obvious is that he is taking advantage of tragedies for political purposes.

Given the terrorist incidents in both Egypt and France in the last year, the chance of this being terrorism are much greater than if it were some random plane that crashed in the Pacific or Midwest. Stating as undisputed fact, as Trump did, that this must be a terrorist attack is stupid, but it's not exactly a wild leap either.

After the terrorist attack on Easter halfway around the world, Donald Trump tweeted, "Another radical Islamic attack, this time in Pakistan, targeting Christian women & children. At least 67 dead, 400 injured. I alone can solve."

He sounds like the All-Powerful and Mighty Wizard of Oz, another charlatan. Pay no attention to the sad man behind the curtain.

If he knows how to end terrorism, and didn't bother to tell anyone, then he's to blame for everyone who dies from terrorism from this point on.

I guess I won't be that impressed.

If he's wrong, he's wrong. And I am sure if he is wrong, he'll be called out on it, and Trump will think twice about making assumptions.

But will you give him credit if he's right?

If he's wrong, I'm sure we'll never hear the end of it from you.

And if he is wrong, Hillary will have some damn good campaign ads to toss around until November.

Trump deserves to be thrown into the dust bin of history and ignored. He's a no-class, know-it-all. Any more questions?

No, I wouldn't give him credit for a fucking guess that he has a 50% chance of being right on. lol

That's not the point, regardless of if he ends up being right or wrong (and putting aside the fact that he's just guessing) the point is that there is no reason for him to be saying this shit without proof, except to rile people up and incite fear. If you think that's leadership, then I feel sorry for you. I think that is just another form of terrorism - terrorizing people to vote for him out of fear.

Well, now they're saying there were reports of smoke in several places of the plane. Hmmm, multiple ISIS dudes going in for a smoke?


Yep, nailed it.

By all means please tell us what Dimwit Donald is going to do to get tougher on terrorism?

Before you shot from the hip some sort of incoherent screed, why not add your explanation has to why ISIS's controlled territory is now half of what it use to be.

All Donald has to do...is act. That's it. It's nothing special. And most supporters of Trump know this. They simply want somebody to do something...rather than finding excuses to NOT do something. Indeed, it's a challenging idea to some.

People throughout the federal government -- including the military, FBI, and CIA -- are involved in combatting terrorism every day. Massive amounts of resources are expended to keep Americans safe, and since 9/11 an average of about 4 Americans per year have died here in the United States as a result of terrorist attacks. Your comments are so off-base that I found it difficult to even justify writing this post.

Act how? What should he do? What are his plans? He has no platform outside of spewing dumbshit like rounding them ISIS folks and putting up walls that the Mexicans are going ti pay for, etc.

"Something" is pretty fucking vague.

The Obama administration acts all the time and you don't seem to like it.

I'll quote you again, adding to the choir, to also point out how nonsensical this is, as it (mistakenly) presumes that there has been no action up to now, and that whatever Donald might do would be different or preferable.

What did Donald do? Probably just sent a few racist tweets and bankrupted another business.

If Donald Trump was president, he would have had that Taliban guy killed two weeks ago. And sent Gary Busey to do it.

I think the "something" he has in mind is wholesale slaughter of muslims. If we indiscriminately kill enough of them, we'll kill all the terrorists. No one is innocent, because all muslims know who the terrorists are and protect them.

It's like a six year old who is stung by a bee and wants to make all. bees. DIE.
