Regarding “Political reaction split along partisan lines"

Not surprisingly, statements from the presumptive major party candidates and other political figures fail to address the probable underlying cause of mass shootings by perpetrators of Middle Eastern heritage.

The US led coalition to oust Saddam Hussein from Kuwait set into the motion the following reactions—the first World Trade Center bombing, in February 1993, and then the horrific events on September 11, 2001.  The Bush II administration reaction to the attacks on the WTC and the Pentagon was the US invasion of Iraq (March 2004) after the incursion into Afghanistan to capture Osama bin Laden. 

The massacre in Orlando is another example of blowback.  The architects of our bipartisan foreign policy will never admit that it has been US intervention in the Middle East that is sparking these mass shootings.  In other words, we probably will have additional mass shootings in America because of the Bush/Obama/Clinton foreign policy. 

Will Trump embrace intervention in the Middle East as the way to deal with ISIS?  Or will he realize the chaos of the Middle East and the inevitable blowback from the Middle East is the direct result of US foreign policy? 

Until the architects of our foreign policy come to their senses, the blood of innocent Americans will be on their hands together with that of the Islamic murderers.
