Why did local authorities respond to an active shooter? I don't get that.
When I served we had our very own police department and our very own first responders, clinics, hospital, all of that. And since this happened on a military base, local cops and laws don't mean anything, this is a military matter.
And why would Trump put on a pretty face for the Saudi's? If anyone needs to ask that question, they need to study up and American/Saudi relations. American politicians have been kissing Saudi ass for decades. And will continue to do so.
BTW, the USA has been helping financially and many other ways, including weaponizing ME areas since way back when, and even providing training to ME countries and other areas with military training. In 1976, I observed Iranian recruits at Lackland AFB in Texas.
Here's a small tidbit of our friendly relations with Iranians: "In the early and mid-1960’s, the US provided military assistance to Iran under agreements which specified that assistance would be based on US surveys of Iranian needs." history.state.gov/historicaldocuments/f...
We presently have literally thousands of people in military training from all over the ME. We train them how to kill, then some end up killing Americans.
