San Bernardino, CA., Terror Attacks

                  A husband-wife terror team killed 14 people and injured 21 more in an attack on San Bernardino County’s public health department yesterday. The Inland Regional Center was in the midst of a holiday celebration when Syed Rizwan Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, carried out the attack. Farook worked at the facility for the past five years and was known to be a devout Muslim. Co-workers, including Christian Nwadike, said that Farook rarely started a conversation but was well liked. He had visited Saudi Arabia this past summer and may have been “radicalized” sources said.
                 Police finally stopped the killing- and the killers- when they shot the terrorists, apparently prompting President Obama to say that “gun-control may deter terrorists.” Yes, in much the same way that disarming ourselves and appeasing aggression worked so well in preventing World War II. The President also held out hope that it may have been an instance of work place violence, or “mixed-motives.”

                The suspects wore black tactical vests during the attack and police found 5,000 bullets, 12 pipe bombs and tools for fashioning IED’s at their residence. Yep, just another spontaneous case of that old workplace violence popping up! What employee, perhaps offended by something someone said, and at the end of his or her rope, doesn't don a bullet proof vest, a few guns, and a pipe bomb or three and attempt to wipe out his or her co-workers?
