Podcast: Saudi Officer in US for Flight Training Shoots Up Florida Airbase

This will be presented as something only preventable by killing even more people in the Middle East (preferably Iranians)

On FPF #427, I explain how the shooting at the US base in Flordia was a part of the war the US is fighting in the Middle East. The shooter was a Saudi officer who was training at the base.

Before the shooting, the Saudi posted about American crimes against Muslims being the motivation for his attack.

While in the US, this will be presented as an act of terror only preventable by killing more Muslims in the Middle East, the reality is more war in the Middle East will only create more terror attacks in the US.
