Terrorists hit another soft target in western Europe today, this time hitting Munich. Reuters is reporting that “Gunmen attacked a busy mall in the German city of Munich on Friday evening, killing at least eight people and sending shoppers running for their lives from what police said was a terrorist attack.” Later in the article, it said “A police spokesman said there was no immediate indication that it was an Islamist attack but it was being treated as a terrorist incident.”
In the same article, however, it reports that “There was no immediate claim of responsibility but supporters of Islamic State celebrated on social media. ‘The Islamic state is expanding in Europe,’ read one Tweet.”
Also according to Reuters’ reporting “it was the third major act of violence against civilians in Western Europe in eight days. Previous attacks in France and Germany were claimed by the Islamic State militant group.”
During the Bush administration, there weren’t 3 terarorist attacks in 8 years. With those statistics, it’s difficult to say that we’re safer now than we were during the Bush years. This is a problem for Hillary. It isn’t that she’s got blood on her hands on this one. It’s that she, along with President Obama, can’t say she’s blameless after she destabilized the Middle East.
Personally, I can’t picture people being comfortable with the increased number of terrorist attacks. While many have happened in Europe, people know that they could easily happen here.
