Why does a WWI general merit a Trump tweet?

US condemns Spanish attack pledges justice for terrorists

US condemns Spanish attack pledges justice for terrorists

However, if there are indeed two or three more suspects, it means that the terror cell consisted of, at the very least, 11 to 12 men.

As is often the nature of popularity of fake news, the myth on General Pershing too has been widely circulated on internet even though this has been proven wrong by historians.

In February 2016, Mr Trump had told Washington Post, Pershing killed terrorists with bullets "dipped in pigs' blood". He deliberately kept the last man alive so that he could go share what happened to his people. The story goes that Pershing, known as "Black Jack", rounded up a large group of Muslim rebels and had them executed with bullets dipped in the blood of pigs, which are "haram" or "forbidden" by Islamic law.

They believe explosives being prepared for the van that smashed into pedestrians on that crowded Barcelona street detonated prematurely, thus depriving the driver the ability to kill or maim countless more people out enjoying a summer stroll.

Joseph Dunford , left, and Chief of the General Staff of the Chinese People's Liberation Army Gen. Tillerson said the United States wanted dialogue with Pyongyang, but only if it were meaningful.

The UK foreign secretary, Boris Johnson said he was "concerned and saddened" by the attack and said the foreign office was "doing all we can to identify whether Brits need help". CNN did report that "ISIS' media wing, Amaq, issued a statement that said the attackers are "soldiers of the Islamic State, ' although ISIS has not explicitly claimed responsibility for the attack".

It's unclear. Trump did not cite any specific tactic employed by Pershing in his tweet on Thursday.

"We offer our condolences to the loss of life and the injuries that have occurred to so many innocent people yet again".

In 2007, the USA embassy even suggested setting up a Mediterranean intelligence operation and counter-terrorism hub based in Barcelona to monitor the threat from jihadi terrorists.

Elon Musk leads call to ban killer robots
A potential ban on the development of "killer robot " technology has previously been discussed by United Nations committees. The specialists signed an open letter to the United Nations calling on it to prevent a devastating new arms race.

Before Trump took to Twitter, the USA secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, said the administration stood ready to help Spanish law enforcement and national authorities and advised Americans in Spain to call home to reassure relatives. "Our consulates in Barcelona and our entire Mission Spain team are now assisting Americans in Spain who are affected by these events". "So anytime you use rhetoric like the kind we saw yesterday, you're playing into that message and helping that recruiting and indeed feeding their message that U.S. citizens should be a target".

Six civilians and a police officer were wounded in the second attack and one woman later died of her wounds, Spanish authorities said.

Speaking on CNN's "New Day" Friday morning, Monaco, now a CNN national security analyst, warned that Trump's rhetoric about the tale of Pershing is exactly the kind that plays into the hands of terrorists.

"Instead, such acts of violence only harden our resolve to fight back against violent extremists, bring them to justice, and dismantle their networks", it said in a statement.

Witnesses and a footage of a closed-circuit camera that reportedly captured the police operation are telling a different story. Thou shall not kill! Archbishop Socrates Villegas said.
