There is a Code White, active shooter on the campus.

Patients are locked in their rooms.

Only someone who really hates veterans would pull this stunt. It's probably a 50/50 toss between RoB and Obama.

They have cleared Building 19 where the shooter was originally reported. But the hospital remains in lockdown.

Rugian, they said it was a Congressman that was locked in a room with a bunch of people.

He called one of the news networks.

That's all I got.

"The active shooter event aboard Naval Support Activity Bethesda today was the result of the improper use of a mass notification system by a tenant command aboard the installation. While preparing for an upcoming drill, the notification system was inadvertently enacted…

…without containing the words "EXERCISE" or "DRILL." Individuals who saw the mass notification statement immediately notified NSA Bethesda security, where they responded accordingly and instituted an installation-wide active shooter response. …

… On further investigation, they determined that the improper use of the system was the root cause and secured from the active-shooter response.

So glad all of that money Trump has been dumping on the military has paid off.

Takes time to climb out of the bottom of the barrel where Obama left our military.

That's a rather funny-looking bottom of the barrel...

Just think where it would be if Hillary had won.


Sorry, I was going by the soundbites.

You seriously don't think its rediculous to with "defeat Nazis and Imperial Japan" levels of military spending (in dollars, not % of gdp).

Jergul,

Inflation.

Are those dollars adjusted for inflation?

Actually, I'm wrong. They are already adjusted. Mb

Details. So important. Still, a lot less of the total economy is going to the DoD (hence my comment on gdp).

I am saying you are spending way too much on belligerency.

Well, by the time you factor in the cost of modern weapons such as Billion Dollar submarines, aircraft carriers, Bombers, and even the superior gear that the dogface wears from better weapons that fire three rounds everytime they squeeze the trigger, flak vests, night vision for everyone, unit communication, and the sophisticated training for everyone from the foot soldier to the Navy Seals, then no.


I don't think it is ridiculous.

That is a reasonable cost for the military for the only Superpower on the planet.


Oh, I forgot. R&D for the next family of modern weapons.

Actually, we are not belligerent.

We love peace and equal free trade more than any other country on the planet.

Still not a super power. For that, you would need to be able to fight wars in multiple theaters at the same time. But you are certainly one of the bigger major powers, if not the biggest.

You are belligerent. And are slapping down tariffs left, right and center.

Do you think all options should be on the table as the basis for talks?

jergul, certainly, but that does not necessarily mean they should be used.
