Terrorism in San Bernardino, update

This morning at 11:00 AM, at a holiday event in a conference facility in San Bernardino, three men with rifles, and possibly wearing ski masks and body armor, open fire, killing at least 14 with another 14 injured at area hospitals. The three men got away in a dark SUV, possibly a black GMC Yukon.

Based on this preliminary info, it sounds like Islamic terrorism by a terrorism squad that had the intent to go in and get out as fast as possible, thus not getting caught. (I always wondered why the terrorists want to die as part of the attack; it makes a lot more sense to get away so they can attack again.) I guess they picked this location just because it was an easy target where they could kill people and get away, and not because there was anything special going on there.

  1. 2:17 pm, PST. I am doubling down on my bet: Psycho, white, beta male who got fired from his cushy civil service job at the facility. Too much confusion to credit the reports coming in.

  2. At first I thought this is unlikely to be Islamic terrorists because the location in Central California is not home to either a large community of Muslims or any meaningful targets. But we’ve seen a jihadist incident in Chattanooga, TN, so who knows.

  3. The target was the County government Christmas party. This County has had years of contentious negotiations and cuts to its public employees. The Teamsters replaced one of the local independent unions, and the SEIU also is still negotiating. This may be a more likely group carrying out the attack.

  4. I believe your right. One gunman could be a nut or some disgruntled ex employee or jilted lover. But three? If it’s not a robbery, it sounds like terrorism.

  5. Lion, why do you never wait confirmation? Your predictions usually turn out to be as bad as Whiskey’s.

    • Don’t discourage him, Lion’s risky predictions are one of the reasons we read him.

  6. It is not out of the realm of possibility.

    In Anaheim, there is a place called Little Arabia. Lots of good food there but with Arabia comes Islam. A few mosques are sprinkled here and there. One in particular is guarded by a large steel fence with big steel sliding gates. Very imposing.

    San Bernardino is probably an hour from Anaheim.

    Lots of freeways run through the area, heading to LA, OC, San Diego, the desert or the mountains. The desert or mountains could be a hiding spot, lots of wilderness. A few years ago, Dorner hid out in the mountains and it took days to flush him out.

    You have to be trolling.

    Nothing Islamic terror like about this.

    Attacking a social services center for autistics???

    Sounds more like a personal grievance issue. Unless they were a group of ILLEGALS with autism then maybe some Trumpsters went in to attack foreigners.

    Hard to guess with so little except that this kind of idiot attack is generally done by a single male kook.
