    But 'Merica and Stein's disdain for anyone who thinks differently are sure to be positive contributions, I'm sure.
    People don't think differently when it comes to murdering people...

    Before mocking the religious and clamoring for pet policy prescriptions, perhaps you might want to consider why these two events happened (domestic issues and unknown), neither of which tell us anything at the moment about how either even might have been prevented.

    But 'Merica and Stein's disdain for anyone who thinks differently are sure to be positive contributions, I'm sure.
    Rocwell was just offering Thoughts and Prayers for this tragedy. Why you gotta go and get all defensive?

    But seriously, the fact that you don't see this as simply part of a larger pattern/issue in the US, which it obviously is, isn't particularly surprising. Sure, understanding the details of these specific tragedies is important, but to pretend this is just a one-off and completely unrelated to all of the other shootings that have happened over the years, is just being willfully ignorant.


    And the disdain is not for those "thinking differently" (and this is getting so tired from the Right); it is for those who pretend there is no issue at all to be addressed.

    Yup, nailed it.

    In other words, we've seen this tragedy play out countless times already. The specific details are literally meaningless if not accompanied by sweeping systematic changes at the national level.

    Once again going against his own Intelligence Agencies because the suspect "vigorously denied it"? Unbelievable.

    King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman vigorously deny any knowledge of the planning or execution of the murder of Mr. Khashoggi. Our intelligence agencies continue to assess all information, but it could very well be that the Crown Prince had knowledge of this tragic event – maybe he did and maybe he didn’t!” Trump wrote.

    That being said, we may never know all of the facts surrounding the murder of Mr. Jamal Khashoggi. In any case, our relationship is with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. They have been a great ally in our very important fight against Iran. The United States intends to remain a steadfast partner of Saudi Arabia to ensure the interests of our country, Israel and all other partners in the region.”

    On Friday, the Washington Post reported that the CIA has concluded with “high confidence” that the crown prince ordered Khashoggi’s killing.

    The U.S. has a copy of the audio, but Trump said in an interview with Fox News that he hasn’t listened to it and doesn’t intend to because it’s a “suffering tape.”
