Cobra works for London?

Cabinet Office Briefing Rooms (COBR, often referred to as COBRA)[1][2] are the locations for a type of crisis response committee set up to co-ordinate the actions of bodies within the Government of the United Kingdom in response to instances of national or regional crisis, or during ev.... blablabla

In short, when you are caught napping with your thumb up your &#$ and you haven't a clue what happen or what to do next, you come up with grand/dangerous/exciting names for mundane objects/groupings.

It makes you look like you will get results.

The only thing that gives results in terrorism is you put distance between your country and the US (and its policies).

OMG! We must immediately deport all Americans who immigrated from England!

BLOTUS has spoken!

"It's a terrible thing.

"It just keeps going and going, and we have to be very smart, we have to be very, very tough.

"Perhaps we are not nearly tough enough.

"It's just an absolutely terrible thing. In fact, I'm going to call the prime minister right now.

"We have to be tougher and we have to be smarter."

Back in the days of the VCR, just before the internet, we had a Bengali cook. He thought himself very smart.

One day our VCR conked out. I could not identify the problem... but the cook said he knew what was wrong!

I asked him "oh?", expecting a gem... and I was not disappointment.

"Something has gone wrong with it's SYSTEM!" he said with a knowing nod.

Trump is another Bengali cook in disguise I bet.

There is a direct correlation between European nations who have taken in Syrian and other ME refugees in the last few years and Islamic terrorist attacks in those nations.

Poland took in few to none and have had few to none attacks.

#9, There is a stronger correlation between nations we have attacked and their sympathizers than Immigration. Of course the only reason there is an immigration problem in Europe is because of US military intervention with all the resulting chaos, destruction and killing the immigrants must flee or die. We have created the unsustainable problems we don't like. Immigration is a tiny part of that picture.

No. The reason for the immigration problem is Europe suicidally opening their borders. And they will have to live with the consequences for a long time.

#11, truth is there was no EU immigration problem until we attacked Iraq, Libya and Syria. Opening their borders includes. rescue on the high seas, food, shelter and medical care for these desperate people who will most certainly die if they do not run. The opposite of what Hitler, Netanyahu, Trump and Nulli would do. The problems we created or support include Somalia, Yemen and surrounding regions. we do it all for oil and do not give a $&/t how many innocent die.

President Barack Obama dropped his 20,000 bombs

Wasn't that based on Dubya's contractual timeline?

Depends on your conservative perspective.

Good that US troops were not getting killed in Iraq any more... Bush Plan

Bad that Iraq turned into a sectarian --------... Obama plan.

Pretending Dubya had a plan is hilarious. No one had a plan and we shouldn't have been there in the first place.

Any body that thinks Obama achieved some dramatic changes in domestic or foreign policy of the US is a fool. He walked a fine line in order to maintain a non-threatening image and kept on that path even after his second election. Our country is run by the military industrial complex and banks, all international criminals. Locally Real Estate developers run the show. The system is pay to play, completely unrelated to government of, by and for the people. An Oligarchy, as proven in a Princeton Study and recently Carter reiterated that point. But most Americans live in a fantasyland religion and political BS.

We experience the terrible consequences of Oligarchy policy as hurricanes, pollution, overcrowding and debt peonage. Mild compared to how foreigners experience our Oligarchical, unsustainable policies.

As infrastructure damage piled up and spread across one region to another the refugee problem grew larger and larger. Since Turkey and Libya provide the shortest Mediterranean paths in their respective regions the instabilities we deliberately created in those areas attracted refugees. Remember these people are fighting for their lives with close to nothing but their legs to move with. We are the cause of pain and suffering and they know it.

Terror cops confirmed they are hunting multiple attackers after ISIS claimed a jihadi "squad" was behind the explosion that sent a "fireball" through a packed carriage.

That $4 trillion Gannon's punchboard spent creating ISIS is really starting to pay dividends.
