Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA: Muslim Attacks Military Centres, Murders 4 US Marines, Gets Killed
As reported by assorted news outlets this morning.
First, Australia’s ABC with a bare-bones account based on information from AFP and Reuters.
‘Four US marines have been killed in twin shootings at military centres in the southern US state of Tennessee, in an attack that local officials described as an act of terrorism.
Jihad. Ramadan, the ‘month of Jihad’, the ‘month of victory’, is still in full swing. – CM
‘At least two people were injured during the incidents in Chattanooga: a police officer and a Marine Corps recruiter.
Targeting the Marine Corps, which is perhaps America’s most legendary and feared military entity…formed, originally, as the fledgling American republic scrambled to defend its shipping against attacks from Muslim pirates off the coasts of North Africa. – CM
‘The gunman was shot dead, city mayor Andy Berke said.
Good. No expensive time-wasting trial and subsequent opportunities for grandstanding by the attacker and endless claiming of victimhood by Muslims crying ‘Islamophobia”. The Mohammedan Mob, however, will view him as a martyr who has achieved ‘paradise’ by slaying and being slain ‘in the cause of allah’. – CM
“It is incomprehensible to see what happened and the way that individuals who proudly serve our country were treated”, Mr Berke said, praising the quick response by law enforcement to prevent further loss of life.
It is ugly, but not incomprehensible – once one knows that the attacker was a Muslim – to any person who has informed themselves on the subject of Islam, and the Jihad, and the way in which Muslim minorities within non-Muslim host societies tend to conduct themselves. The murderer was a Fifth Columnist, targeting one of the key institutions of the Infidel society – its military. – CM
‘Bill Killian, the US federal prosecutor in that part of Tennessee, said that the shootings were being investigated as an “act of domestic terrorism” but officials cautioned that no-one should jump to conclusions.
“We are looking at every possible avenue – whether it was terrorism, whether it ws domestic, international, or whether it was a simple criminal act”, FBI special agent Ed Reinhold said.
A Muslim attacked and killed US Marines. It was an act of war, on American soil, carried out by an enemy agent or Fifth Columnist. – CM
‘The Marine Corps confirmed that all four victims were killed at a Navy and Marine Corps Reserve Centre.
‘The second shooting, at the hands of the same man, occurred at a recruitment centre several miles away.
‘CBS news reported that the shooting suspect had been identified as Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, citing two law enforcement sources.
‘A White House spokesman said President Barack Obama had been told about the shooting.
“The President has been briefed by his national security staff on the Chattanooga shooting and will continue to get updates as warranted”, spokesman Eric Schultz said.
‘Senator Bob Corker, a former mayor of Chattanooga, said he was “heartbroken”.
He should rather have said that he was furious. – CM
“This is a difficult day for Tennesseans and our thoughts and prayers are with all affected by this tragedy”, he said in a statement.
Not a “tragedy”. Call it what it was: an act of war. – CM
‘Lockdowns had been put in place at businesses, a college, and other facilities near the shooting sites.
‘Near the recruiting centre, a witness said the gunman appeared to be calm.
High on allah. High as a kite on hatred of the despised Infidel untermenschen. – CM
“Everybody was at a standstill, and as soon as he pulled away everyone scrabbled (does she mean “scrambled”? – CM) trying to make sure everyone was OK,” said Erica Wright, who works two doors down from the recruiting centre.
‘The incident served as an ugly reminder of other deadly shootings at US military installations, including a 2009 rampage (also carried out by a Muslim fifth columnist – CM) at Fort Hood that left 13 dead, and a 2013 attack at the Navy Yard in Washington that left 12 dead.”
And now for some more detail, from American agencies.
“4 Marines Killed in Attacks on Chattanooga military facilites.”
‘A gunman (sic: a Muslim gunman – CM) unleashed a barrage of gunfire at two military facilities [on] Thursday in Tennessee, killing at least four Marines and wounding a soldier and a police officer, officials told CBS News.
‘The shooter also was killed.
Good riddance to bad rubbish. – CM
‘Two law enforcement sources told CBS News that the shooting suspect was identified as Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez.
And if Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez had never been allowed into the USA in the first place, four men would be alive today who now are dead.- CM
“Today was a nightmare for the city of Chattanooga”, Mayor Andy Berke said. “As a city, we will respond to this with every available resource we have.”
Want some ideas, Mayor, as to what might constitute a suitable response? Start by demanding that the authorities raid and surprise-search every single known mosque in Tennessee, and shut down – permanently – any mosque where anything at all dodgy is found to be going on. And then demand that all Muslim entry into the USA be stopped. Now. And that all non-citizen Muslims be put on notice that their current visas and/ or residency status will not be renewed and that when their time runs out they will be required to leave. – CM
U.S attorney Bill Killian said officials were treating the attacks as an “act of domestic terrorism”, though FBI Special Agent in Charge Ed Reinhold said authorities were still investigating a motive…
Yeah, sure, motive’s a real head-scratcher, because of course it must be NothingtodowithIslam. – CM
‘Berke said five people died in all, including the gunman.
The four non-Muslims did not just “die”, they were murdered. – CM
‘A police officer was shot in the ankle, and others were wounded, he said.
‘US officials told CBS News correspondent David Martin that four US Marines were among the dead.
‘A Marine recruiter was treated at a hospital for a gunshot wound to the leg, the Marine Corps said on its Facebook page.
“Lives have been lost form some faithful people who have been serving our country, and I think I join all Tennesseans in being both sickened and saddened by this,” Gov Bill Haslam said.
Dear Governor Haslam: what you should have said is that American military, American soldiers, have been murdered in cold blood on their own home soil in a sneak attack carried out by an enemy agent and that you are mad as hell. This is not a time for weeping and wailing and wringing of hands and lighting of candles and laying of wreaths; this is a time for coldly-rational fury. – CM
‘The shootings began at a recruiting centre on Old Lee Highway in Chattanooga where five branches of the military all have adjoining offices. A gunshot rang out around 10.30 or 10.45 am, said Sgt 1st Class Robert Dodge, 36, the center leader for US Army recruiting at the centre.
“Shortly after that, just a few seconds, the shooter began shooting more rounds. We realized it was an actual shooting”, he said.
‘He and his colleagues then got on the ground and barricaded themselves in a safe place.
Looks as though soldiers at US army recruiting officers aren’t armed? If they’re not, then from now on – given that this is not the first time a Muslim jihadi has attacked a recruitment centre on American soil – they should be. – CM
‘he did not see the shooter or a vehicle. The Army recruiting office was not damaged, but doors and glass were damaged at the neighbouring Air Force, Navy and Marine offices, he said.
‘After the shooting, the Department of Homeland Security said in a statement that it was “enhancing the security posture at certain federal facilities, out of an abundance of caution.”
Muslims in the US are sufficiently emboldened that they feel able to attack military facilities? Then those military facilities, even if they’re as simple as recruitment offices, must be able to respond to such attack with deadly force. – CM
‘Law enforcement officials told recruiters that the shooter was in a car, stopped in front of the facility, shot at the building and drove off, said Brian Lepley, a spokesman with the US Army Recruiting Command in Fort Knox, Kentucky.
‘One witness told CBS affiliate, WDEF, that the m an who was in a silver Mustang convertible was “just unloading a large gun on the Naval recruiting office.”
‘The recruiting centre sits in a short strip between a Cricket Wireless and an Italian restaurant, with no apparent additional security.
That sort of thing is going to have to change. But it wouldn’t have had to change if the USA had never admitted hundreds of thousands – now millions – of Muslims within its gates. The Ummah or Mohammedan Mob is the nurturing, sheltering sea within which the jihadis swim and from which, endlessly, they emerge. – CM
‘Nearby, Nicholas Donohue heard a blast of gunshots while working at Desktop Solutions. But he had music playing, and wasn’t quite sure what the noise had been. He turned off the music, and seconds later, a second blast thundered. He took shelter in a back room. “Even though I knew it was most likely gunfire I h eeard, you also don’t want to believe it’s happening in the moment”, he said. “Since I didn’t see anyting, I couldn’t be sure.”
‘By the time he emerged, police were cordoning off the area.
“Within minutes of that attack the shooter then opened fire at the Navy Operational Support Centre and Marine Corps Reserve Centre, Chattanooga, about 7 miles away. Reinhold said all of the dead were killed there.
‘The centre sits between the highway and a pathway that runs through Tennessee River Park, a popular park at a bend in the Tennessee River north-east of downtown Chattanooga…
‘The two entrances to the fenced facility have unmanned gates and concrete barriers that require approaching cars to slow down to drive around them.
‘Marilyn Hutcheson, who works at Binswanger Glass across the street, said she heard a barrage of gunfire around 11 am.
“I couldn’t even begin to tell you how many”, she said. “It was rapid fire, like pow pow pow pow pow, so quickly. The next thing I knew, there were police cars coming from every direction.
‘She ran inside, where she remained locked down with other employees and a customer. The gunfire continued, with occasional bursts she estimated for 20 minutes.
“We’re apprehensive”, Hutcheson said. “Not knowing what transpired, if it was a grievance or terroristic related, we just don’t know.”
They saw dozens of emergency vehicles rush by: bomb teams, SWAT teams, and state, local and federal authorities.’
CBS allowed Comments. A quick sampling. Says one American who’s been doing his sums: “1 percent of 10 million Muslims (10 million in the USA? – not quite that many yet, one hopes, but still...CM) are TERRORISTS – that’s a big number!” To which someone else replied, “1.57 billion Muslims. 15.7 million Jihadis. Tens of millions more supporters/ enablers”. And another – “What do you think will happen when the country is 10 percent Muslim if this is happenign with just a tiny minority of the population?” Yep, the Islamosavvy percentage of the US general Infidel public is steadily increasing.
And now for the CNN version.
“Chattanooga Shooting: 4 Marines Killed, Dead Suspect Identified”.
‘The alleged gunman in Thursday’s shootings in Chattanooga Tennessee was Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, according to two sources briefed on the case. He was born in 1990, a law enforcement official said.
‘Four Marines were killed when a gunman attacked two military sites in Chattanooga, Tennessee, on Thursday, the US Navy said….
‘The suspected gunman started spraying bullets at the glass doors of a strip mall military recruiting centre around 10.45 am…
‘From there, he headed to another location more than seven miles away, an operational support centre operated by the US Navy.
‘That’s where the four victims and the gunman were killed, Reinhold [FBI special agent in charge] said.
‘At least three people were injured, officials said, including a police officer and a military service member.
‘The officer, who was injured when he was shot in the ankle, has been treated at the hospital, Berke said. A military service member was also among the wounded, the Defense Department said…”.
And from the Tennessean, with Associated Press.
‘Gunman Identified in Chattanooga Shooting’.
‘….A U.S. official says the gunman in the shootings in Tennessee has been identified as 24 year old Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez.
‘He was believed to have been born in Kuwait, and it was unclear whether he was a U.S. or Kuwaiti citizen.
‘The official was speaking on condition of anonymity….It was not immediately clear whether the gunman’s first name was spelled Muhammad or Mohammad.
Who cares how it’s spelt? Muhammad, Mohammad, Mohammed, Muhammed, Mahmoud, Mehmet…it’s all the same name; the name of a murderous 6th century-7th century Arab warlord, caravan raider, slave-trader, rapist and cult leader whose every action is viewed as beyond criticism and as admirable and worthy of emulation by his 1.2 / 1.3 billion cult followers worldwide. – CM
‘He is from (that is: he was recently resident at – CM) Hixson, Tennessee, which is just a few miles across the river from Chattanooga.
‘He was a 2012 engineering graduate from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga,according to the Chattanooga Times Free Press….’.
So, if he was born in Kuwait and if he turns out not to be an immigrant with an acquired American citizenship, but rather a graduate on some kind of residency permit, then he presumably got into the USA on a student visa. If he had not been admitted into the USA on that student visa; if American universities were not – like institutions all over the western world – feverishly chasing petrodollars; then four US marines would be alive who now are dead. – CM
