It was incompetent terrorism
Morons on news channels have been talking about the supposed sophistication of the attack. Actually, it was amateur hour.
Many news events have shown that it’s not that difficult to kill a bunch of people if you have a gun and they don’t. Adam Lanza could do it and he had severe mental disabilities. It’s not clear to me that James Holmes was lucid when he shot up the movie theater. And the Columbine killers were just two stupid high school kids. Perhaps it would be more difficult if more people decided to tackle the guy with the gun, but in most of these events everyone runs away. There are no heroes out there.
Smart terrorism would be a hit and run where the terrorists get away and commit more terrorism again in the future. So far, no terrorists have been able to pull this off.
Farook made the stupid decision to shoot up the place where he works, and everyone there saw him walk out and come back with a gun and he was immediately fingered by everyone as the suspect.
Farook and his wife use [a rental car rented in their own names].
They show up three hours later in the same vehicle only a few blocks away from the scene of the crime and are easily spotted by the police.
They put a lot of effort into making pipe bombs, but not a single pipe bomb was detonated.
They had thousands of rounds of ammunition but only were able to fire a few dozen of bullets before being captured
Based on their arsenal, they clearly imagined some huge terrorist operation, but they were only able to pull off something like what a kid with severe mental disabilities could do by himself.
I guess we should be thankful that, until now, terrorists have been so incompetent, but eventually we will have to deal with competent terrorists.
