On Monday night, a tragedy unfolded in Manchester, England, as a suicide bomber walked into the Manchester Arena and detonated a bomb at the southern entrance. The Islamic State claimed responsibility on Tuesday for the bombing which is the deadliest assault in Britain since 2005 — as the death toll rose to 22.

This cowardly murderer is responsible for the deaths of innocent children, one of which was as young as 8-years-old. According to reports, the attacker allegedly had support from a local group. As the NY Times reports, hours after the attack, the police set off a controlled explosion and raided a house in Elsmore Road, in the Fallowfield district, about 3.5 miles south of the arena.

A neighbor, Lina Ahmed, said that a young man lived with his parents and younger siblings at the house that was raided. “They didn’t really speak to anyone,” she said. “They were nice people if you walked past.”

The ISIS attack was immediately decried by Western officials as they took to the airwaves to release their statements.

“We now know that a single terrorist detonated his improvised explosive device near one of the exits of the venue, deliberately choosing the time and place to cause maximum carnage and to kill and injure indiscriminately,” Prime Minister Theresa May of Britain said in a televised statement.

“The explosion coincided with the conclusion of a pop concert which was attended by many young families and groups of children,” Mrs. May added. “This attack stands out for its appalling, sickening cowardice, deliberately targeting innocent, defenseless children and young people who should have been enjoying one of the most memorable nights of their lives.”

“So many young, beautiful, innocent people living and enjoying their lives murdered by evil losers in life,” President Trump said early Tuesday morning. “I won’t call them monsters because they’d like that term. They’d think that’s a great name,” he added.

“And interesting that our meeting took place on this horrible morning of death to innocent young people,” Trump said. “Peace can never take root in an environment where violence is tolerated, funded and even rewarded. We must be resolute in condemning such acts in a single unified voice.”

The remarks from Trump and May are certainly warranted and ring true on all levels. Trump’s statement about peace never taking root “in an environment where violence is tolerated, funded and even rewarded,” rings especially true. However, it also exposes the dark hypocrisy of the United States and their constant support of terror for the advancement of special interests.

Before assuming that the Free Thought Project is using this tragedy to advance an agenda, consider that we are only providing a solution to a problem to prevent future attacks. Make no mistake, Western officials are already planning to use this attack to usurp freedoms in the name of ‘keeping you safe.’ We simply propose a far more effective solution that does not involve fostering the police state.

If Trump truly meant that peace can only come when terrorism is not funded and rewarded, then he wouldn’t have just struck a $360 billion dollar deal with the world’s largest exporter of terrorism in the world, Saudi Arabia.

As the Free Thought Project reported last year, a leaked Hillary Clinton email showed the US-backed regimes in Saudi Arabia and Qatar have long supported ISIS.

“We need to use our diplomatic and more traditional intelligence assets to bring pressure on the governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, which are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL and other radical Sunni groups in the region,” the document states.

Another newly released email, from January 2016, includes an excerpt from a private October 2013 speech in which Clinton acknowledged that “the Saudis have exported more extreme ideology than any other place on earth over the course of the last 30 years.”

Prior to the election, Trump agreed, and, on several occasions, lambasted the Saudis for their role in 9/11 and exporting terror.

All Trump’s rhetoric on Saudi Arabia, however, has now shifted as he curtseys to them like every recent president before him.

It’s not just the US support of Saudi Arabia that makes Trump’s statements on the Manchester bombing hypocritical — it’s the fact that the US, itself, is continuing to aid terrorism in the Middle East.

As the Free Thought Project reported earlier this year, the problem of the US funding terrorism in Syria has become so large that the mainstream media cannot even keep it under wraps. Even politicians have come forward with bills to outlaw US funding of terrorism.

“Stop Arming Terrorists Act,” or HR 608, would ban the use of US taxpayers’ funds to aid terrorist groups affiliated with Al-Qaeda or Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL).

“For years, our government has been providing both direct and indirect support to these armed militant groups, who are working directly with or under the command of terrorist groups like Al-Qaeda and ISIS, all in their effort and fight to overthrow the Syrian government,” Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard said in an interview in March.

During her visit to Syria in January, Gabbard met with refugees and victims of the US-backed Syrian regime change, who all asked the same question — why is the US funding terrorism.

“I’ll tell you what I heard from the Syrian people that I met with, Jake, walking down the street in Aleppo, in Damascus, hearing from them.

They expressed happiness and joy at seeing an American walking through their streets. But they also asked why the U.S. and its allies are providing support and arms to terrorist groups like al-Nusra, al-Qaida or al-Sham, ISIS who are on the ground there, raping, kidnapping, torturing and killing the Syrian people.

They asked me, why is the United States and its allies supporting these terrorist groups who are destroying Syria when it was al-Qaeda who attacked the United States on 9/11, not Syria. I didn’t have an answer for them,” Gabbard said, noting the clear dismay the average Syrian has for the U.S. support of al-Qaeda – a proposition which every American should equally question.

Gabbard is not alone in calling out the US government’s role in funding ISIS either. Senator Rand Paul, in March, also announced the senate’s version of the same bill. 

The bill explicitly “Prohibits the U.S. government from providing such assistance covered in the bill to any nation that has given or continues to give such support to terrorists.”

As Trump pays lip service to the victims of the Manchester bombing, his words ring hollow as long as he continues to support the Saudis and continues the same strategy in Syria as his predecessor, Barack Obama, of arming terrorists.

Despite his common sense approaches before being elected, Trump now shows no signs of implementing solutions that will prevent future terror attacks. Instead, through arming and funding them — while simultaneously and indiscriminately blowing up innocent children across the Middle East — Trump is guaranteeing a dark future filled with death and destruction.

    Some Americans also supported the IRA who also bombed civilians

    The Manchester Suicide Bomber is from Libya says UK Gov. The UK, France, US and NATO Destroyed Gaddafi and Libya. NATO killed Libyans in Libya; now UK Citizens are being killed in the UK. Same in Iraq and Syria. Innocent UK victims are suffering for the Bombs dropped in the Middle East by the West.

  • Ron

    While my prayers go out to those in Manchester, one must ask questions about such curcumstances during and around the Brexit negotiations.
    NATO has all but threatened the UK over leaving the EU with key points focusing on terrorism and security…
    Considering the timing; False flag is not off the table.
    (if you study history, you’ll see that many of these “circumstances” are not usually circumstantial at all)

  • Mossad is behind 9/11 and every US foreign intervention since. Israel is the worst ally ever.

    • billdeserthills

    • James Walsh

      The IRA was bombing the UK on a weekly basis for about twenty years dummy.

      • billdeserthills

        Compared to the 30,000+ terrorist events muslims have pulled off since 9/11, the IRA look like a bunch of rank amateurs

        • dougstir

          We don’t actually know about all those “30 000 terrorist” events as western military have been caught numerous times acting as the terrorists or supplying weapons and sponsorship to rabble groups.

          British military personnel specifically have been caught creating terrorist events to foment hatred among Islamic groups.

          • billdeserthills

            I think it’s pretty obvious that muslim scum are what cause the majority of all terrorist attacks all over the world

          • dougstir

            Quite interesting that there was no “Muslim terrorism” before an excuse was fabricated by the Walker Bush administration to attack Iraq in 1991.

            And then the “Muslim terrorism” increased after those buildings were imploded by Mossad and CIA in 2001.

            We will always hear about moozlim terrirists but never about the real terrorist…..scum … who are priming the middle east https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/240ed7bb7ce033a9efc933da4c37fe911b49aaca0e4a02fdb624791659633753.jpg https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/27664dc8cb66da4438447a7c4003c2acaa39e1060dae8abf6ecc1b530686eb3c.jpg

          • billdeserthills

            No, what’s quite interesting is that You think there were no muslim terrorists before 9/11

          • dougstir

            Provable Islamic terrorist events are insignificant before 9-11. …That event proven NOT to be Islamic but Israeli with US government participation.

            Menachim Begin brags that he was the father of global terrorism and terrorism is promoted in the protocols of the fkkng psychos of “zion”.

            Islam with the Quran have some vague threats against their opposition but this terrorism strategy has never been part of Islamic philosophy.

            The fact that there is a scum element in the Muslim community as well as any other tribe or religion or ethnic group is not the specific issue here.

          • billdeserthills

            Right, cause hard-working American citizens are always taking time off of work to travel around the world setting off bombs, in order to kill as many people as they can, huh?!?!

          • dougstir

            Not hard working Americans, dingbat!

            It is the vast American Orc army funded by the American population fucking up the world for a bankster agenda

          • billdeserthills

            Thing I have noticed is in every country where muslim ‘refugees’ are being received–whoever is in charge is a pal of george soros’. That makes it seem like george wants a bunch of muslim trash around in all these countries, including the US–Now I don’t see how he thinks that will make him a profit, but I haven’t seen george do anything he doesn’t think is profitable.

          • dougstir

            Soros is a front man for a much larger operation. “Kalergi-Coudenhove plan” to flood Europe with African and Arab people. This plan is again part of another greater operation that has been going on for two centuries at least. This is a war for tribal supremacy and the Soros tribe is winning 6-luv in every single match basically because the opposing tribe is to dense to even know they are in a war situation and they remain fixated on the diversions while they are being constricted ever tighter into a slave gulag which will be guarded and controlled by members of the same target tribe because they are too stupid to comprehend the implications of the system being imposed on their own families and societies.
            The Arab and African importation program is one of the primary diversion tactics because people will see them as the threat and will be to obtuse to figure out that, since it is “their own governments” doing the importation, it is obviously not the Muslims doing the assault. With this importation program one can also commit some false flag operations as a tactic to install regulations that will assist the Soros tribe to further …..constrict…… the stupid, ignorant, arrogant, apathetic target tribe.
            ………….This is the short version.

          • billdeserthills

            I prefer to believe the suicide bombers are funded by other muslim scum–in fact some of the same scum Trump just sold our weaponry too

    • dougstir

      You did not actually read the article? The US state department and other western governments are much more responsible for this terrorism than Muslims
