    Do you mean to say that ISIL, or the Islamic state has an Australian branch that's operational there, or that a few slipped into Australia to attempt this terrible deed?

    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Who were the 9?

    I don't know, but here was a sentence in your article:

    Nine of those detained were later released, New South Wales police said.

    So 15 were originally detained and 9 were later released. Like I said, that makes me wonder.

    Australia has always held a good relationship with and been a loyal ally of the US. We are the only country to have served alongside the United States in every major conflict since WWII and i see no reason for that relationship not to continue. This event is clear evidence that we are staying vigilant by the fact these maniacs were thwarted before they could carry out their act. We don't need any reminders to stay vigilant as we won't forget the Bali Bombings in 2002 when 88 Aussies lost their lives when Australians were targeted in part due to our close ties with America.

    I've stated before here that i'm not a fan of giving these lunatics a continued platform to try and spread fear by watching youtube videos of Foley's, Haines and Sotloff's execution. I don't need to watch it to know what they did was disgusting. I don't need to watch it to know it is real. They attempt to create fear and hysteria to justify the unjustifiable and i'm not prepared to give them the satisfaction of "winning" their propoganda war. **** them. No gutless, crazy, extremist who thinks it's ok to target civilians is going to get in my head and stop me living my life the way i choose.

    How about that it's entirely one sided and we gain nothing from it?

    except that saudi arabia is highly suspected of funding ISIL.
