Just another example of our national security not being as good as we think it is. The military and police force need to step it up, this is a high profile event in a major city, how could this not be stopped?
Blame the military and police? If you have a better plan, please join the fight.
Wasn't "Blaming" them, the blame is obviously for those who did it. I was simply suggesting they step up their game. I didn't sign up to defend this country so telling me to "join the fight" is stupid, however, THEY DID sign up to defend the country. I believe that many in the armed forces truly care and are trying their best to stop things like this, but do you actually think that everybody involved did everything in their power to prevent this from happening? IDK, seems like every single time we (our country) let our guard down, something like this happens, how many times is it going to happen?
Not stupid to ask you to. YES, they all did sign up, yes I do believe did what they saw as their best effort to prevent this.
THE MAN IN THE ARENA
Excerpt from a speech by Theodore Roosevelt
Paris France, April 23, 1910
It is not the critic who counts;
not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles,
or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood;
who strives valiantly;
who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming;
but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions;
who spends himself in a worthy cause;
who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.
So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
