    So now you can't back up your statement that ISIL is in Mexico.
    You base your statement on a partisan view of border policy .

    I think it's still indeterminant. The Senate is debating a bill to secure passports of known ISIL members so they can't return.

    They don't need to be in Mexico, they are already in the United States. Who are the 2-3 dozen Americans currently in Syria fighting for the terrorists? They could just as easily decide to attack Americans.

    Or how about the 366 British muslims that went to Syria to fight? It would only take several of these to conspire to commit another attack like the London subway attack. The GOP are the only ones talking about the seriousness of this, your side always prefers to sit on its thumbs until something happens.

    Well, that's good news about them getting foiled in Australia.

    But so many questions has to be addressed.

    We better be reminded that there are home-grown terrorists and recruits in our midst. Most likely the terrorists will not come from other places going through our airports and customs....they're here with us.


    Are there any other places around the world that's got plans such as this? They want to bring the horror on our soil - so citizens who only read about these beheadings happening in far away places wouldn't be feeling so far away from it.....that security is gone now.

    Think about the soldier who was killed in the streets in England last year - IN BROAD DAYLIGHT, ON A BUSY STREET. It wasn't a beheading but the result is the same. Where were the cops to stop it? They were unarmed. Too late for the victim.

    Home invasion could take on a new meaning! Sure it hasn't happened yet....but the real possibility and likelihood is there. Should we disarm the population at a time like this?

    This was reported in the special Hannity did at the border with Gov. Perry.

    I am sure there is a video somewhere about it.

    Apparently that's all been called into question now.

    Nice dodge.

    Hey, it's up to you guys... democracy and all that jazz. A lot of us get tired of playing world cop anyway.


    Fact is, all the Western (and Western-related) nations are somewhat dependent on our network of alliances for our security. Sometimes this gets all of us involved in things that aren't necessarily "our fight"... but we're stronger together than we are separately.
