Saudi Air Force officer goes postal in Pensacola

But I don’t think she went postal with a handgun and killed 3 of your citizens. Context matters.
Absolutely right.

Attempting to evade justice is not the same thing.

Remember that when you try to subpoena one of our Royals.

A deliberate attempt to kill people with an firearm resulting in multiple deaths Vs RTA causing an accidental death with the wrongun doing a runner.

In the first case, the perpetrator is dead, the associates in custody in the US and KSA. There's nobody to extradite.
In the second, the perpetrator is in the US and won't return to UK.

Not sure I can see the equivalence.
It is the case of restitution for the victims, which would normally come from a court case. Of course it helps if the perpetrator is still alive to extract the compensation from.

I think the point was that the Governor just threw out a handy soundbite to make themselves look good to a local audience and hadn't really considered (or cared about) the implications for US-anyone else relations.

Our pollys aren't that different really.

Patience, Charles will hand him over with an apple in his mouth.

You can’t equate a mass shooting to a vehicle accident. In attempting to do so, you sound like a spiteful member of a mob.

One of the better aspects of being an American is the ability to go it alone if needed. As such disregarding what others think comes naturally to a large segment of the population as a whole. So you would be very correct when you say we don’t care.

I admire many aspects of the US and its population. I enjoyed working closely with the US military. Unfortunately, the pompous arrogance shown in your postings about this incident do no favours to your country and countrymen.

Not that you will ‘care’.

Correct ,not that I will care.

When you grasp at straws and try to compare two dissimilar events to each other, it makes you seem a bit out of touch.

But until your own house is in order, it is very hard to take what advice you might have to give.
 
And yet Aung San Suu Kyi can fly to The Hague to face charges of genocide, admittedly laid against her country rather than her personally.

Hopefully she will swing for that
 
The net is getting wider, but I wonder how many have already left the country, whether assisted by the KSA or not?

'Several Saudi nationals who had contact with the gunman who killed three at a Naval base in Florida are still unaccounted for, according to authorities.

'Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, a 21-year-old Saudi national training at Navy Air Station in Pensacola, killed three and wounded seven during a shooting rampage that is now presumed to be a terrorist attack. Authorities announced that Alshamrani had visited New York prior to carrying out the attack and had held a dinner party where he showed footage of similar shootings.

'The FBI was already questioning six Saudi nationals who were connected to Alshamrani after two were caught filming the attack. According to a press conference on Saturday, authorities had contacted four more Saudi nationals, bringing the total to 10. Three of the men detained were guests at Alshamrani’s dinner party where he aired videos of other mass shootings. Authorities believe Alshamrani was in contact with several Saudi nationals that are still missing, though the total number of contacts has not been publicly disclosed.'

It was, allegedly, an organised rape gang working out of the embassy in the 80s, as I was informed by a DPG officer. When the story broke in the press the senior officers employed decimation as an example to deter whistleblowers. A fair few DPG officers found themselves suddenly back doing earlies, lates, and nights on crappy inner city estates with no overtime. (Three reasons to join DPG back then 1/ to study for promotion in the copious on-duty downtime when not on a doorstep 2/ to pan an overtime budget that never dried up, 3/ it beat working earlies, lates, and nights on some crappy inner city estate.)
They were at it again in 2015....

Long live BAOR.

Somehow I don't think milling is the standard I would use for any sort of punch up!

Good job he didn't meet me

Funny old world.
One our major allies has had a foreign nutter go postal in a military establishment. The bloke had a message. It has a bearing on what the US ( and us) do in the ME. People died.
If one of those victims had been a British pilot attending the course, would we bring a RTA fatality into the conversation ?
 
so what’s it taking the Micky triggered it of ...So not terror related?

Anyhow the remains of the victims dignified transferred to Charles C Carson Center according to part of below article.

Did she stop at the scene?
If not then at least one of the following applies, in my experience. Stolen vehicle. No Insurance. No license, on a ban, pissed or high, mate.
You forgot panic.

You forgot the husbands briefing. "If you get into any trouble what-so-ever, leave it, get home, you be looked after."

I really do wonder if you are a 'Murcan. You seem to have adopted the British way of writing, our spelling, our turn-of-phrase...you're not a Russian troll are you? Are you?

Some of us can adapt, and read complex things. Which makes it easier to speak to other's. One thing I have to do is be able to translate ^ to working man and be able to convey information for people to understand it.
