I don't understand the motivation either. It makes no sense. These terrorists have been killing their own people for a while now even if they go there in different areas, they are still killing a melting pot of cultures, including their own. But this attack is freaken insane. Their motives and motivations are sickening. They actually use their own religion as justification so anything goes with these sick people.

Welcome!

Trump plans to release classified JFK documents - CNNPolitics

Jerry, how do you feel about this? What about everyone else?

Two things for me:

1. Will the documents be doctored up?

2. Will Bush Sr be shaking considering there have been multiple theories that he might have played a part in JFKs assassination. As we know, Bush Jr and Cheney we willing to murder for revenge and oil. So did dad play a role in murdering according to many, the greatest president we ever had? JFKs last speech was amazing. Amazing, which means the conservative Republicans hated everything he passionately talked about.

1. I don't think that anything really revealing will be released, especially since they're being released by a Republican Administration, so what gets released may well be doctored.

2. It's possible that Bush Sr. and the C.I.A. played a role in President Kennedy's assassination, but the Military Industrial Complex covered it up then, and they'll continue to cover it up now. There are so many people who could and did benefit from President Kennedy's assassination that it's hard, especially over 50 years later, to know who was truly behind it.

I have never heard of this theory regarding Bush Sr playing a part in JKF's assassination. I can't imagine what motive he would have had.
I would be interested what these classified documents have to say.

I am interested in Jerry's thoughts.

ETA: Oh! We both responded at the same time! Bush was part of the CIA? I didn't know that.

I totally agree, Jerry. I'm not trusting what is revealed. We will never find out the truth. What we do know is JFK was ready to do remarkable things not only for this country but the entire world leading by example. It's just simply not a coincidence that he was removed.

He was. If you google Bush Sr and JFK assassination you will get hits on this. There are definite theories out there that he played a part. Even his comments over the years are shady and suspicious. I'm not saying it's 100% true because even if there is direct evidence it has been covered up anyway. But just reading about his possible role is very scary.

There's been quite a bit of conjecture over the years that George H.W. Bush was in the C.I.A. at the time of JFK's assassination and that he had some involvement in it. To be fair though, there have been myriad conspiracy theories over the years so it's impossible to know what's really true.

I don't see them revealing new information either.

AS for the somalia bombings, the problem is that a lot of people don't even share their extreme version of Islam. When I visited Somaliland (the break away republic) a few years ago, it was very calm and definitely the image we have of the country. People practice their faith but its not the extreme version promoted by these terrorists.

Minnesota has a good number of Somalis in this state and that's definitely how they are here. There's a Somali community in Minneapolis. It's not a bad area of Minneapolis, it's a very ethnic area... calm and peaceful people/community in Minneapolis.

Wow! Well...I will definitely look into this. I had no idea!

That's the problem! These so called Muslim terrorists (I don't believe they represent Islam) want to destroy all people who don't follow their extreme views...including fellow Muslims. It's a horrible situation that I don't see a solution for.

I don't see a solution either, sadly.
