    As for ISIS talking about a Western War with Islam, that is what they have wanted all along. They want this to be a religious war, so they are using it as a rallying tool now. If they can make it a religious war, they can get more people.

    Looks like it is working.....their recruitment is up and rising just over the attacks.

    I agree.....Assad should be shutting down their communications and going after any power sources. They said todays strikes were all on the border town crossing into Iraq.

We bombed them again today in Syria. Another 10-12 strikes on them and their chatter over the twitter has increased with their calls for violence. Think any of these Sympathizers in the US will do anything?




    Federal authorities today urged law enforcement across the country to be alert for possible attacks inside the United States in retaliation for U.S. airstrikes against the Islamic group ISIS, the brutal terrorist group that beheaded American journalist James Foley and has seized vast swaths of territory in Iraq and Syria. In a joint bulletin issued to local, state and federal law enforcement, the Department of Homeland Security and FBI said that while they are “unaware of any specific, credible threats against the Homeland” and find most threats to the U.S. homeland by supporters of ISIS “not credible,” they cannot rule out attacks in the United States from sympathizers radicalized by the group’s online propaganda.

    “ISIL members and supporters will almost certainly continue to use social media platforms to disseminate their English-language violent extremist messages,” the bulletin concluded. “Although we remind first responders that content not explicitly calling for violence may be constitutionally protected, we encourage awareness of media advocating violent extremist acts in particular locations or naming particular targets, to increase our ability to identify and disrupt potential Homeland threats. We urge state and local authorities to promptly report suspicious activities related to homeland plotting and individuals interested in traveling to overseas conflict zones, such as Syria or Iraq, to fight with foreign terrorist organizations.” In addition, the bulletin said that “civilian deaths reportedly associated with these U.S. military air strikes will almost certainly be used as further examples of a perceived Western war against Islam in English-language violent extremist messaging that could contribute to [homegrown] radicalization to violence.” .....snip~

    I'm sure the government would 100% tell us we're in some "danger" from ISIS. Whether or not we actually are is a different story.

    Force them to use smoke signals and snail mail.
    It was facetious, we've been killing civilians all over the ME, for some years now. It's a good extremists recruitment tool though. Morning to you, MMC!

    This is why I think the ME countries should be the lead, officially, and directing the U.S. military strikes. As long as the U.S. takes the lead, it will just fill their ranks. If say SA was taking the lead, they couldn't call it a western war against Islam as easy.

    What did you think about their comment about a perceived Western War against Islam?
    If our intelligence gathering is reduced to Twitter....

    This just stinks to high heavens of government trying to pretend we're at higher risk so that they can excuse suspicious and likely illegal behavior.

    Do we have to wait for the smoking gun in the form of a mushroom cloud over a US city? Come on dude, get with the program.

    Agreed. This is no different than the idiots who call 9/11 a "retaliation".

    Mushroom cloud over a US city. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA

    You want me to live in fear because we can't stop bombing the ME for decades? No. We're not in any more danger than we have been in the past. Terrorism is a probability, a rather low one at that, though given enough time you will see the probability work out. But that's not enough to excuse the actions of government. Everything has probabilities, hell freedom has probabilities with it. A probability tends to be better than the certainty of government action.

    And mushroom clouds? Please, that bit of juvenile propaganda and fear mongering isn't going to work here. Get better material.

    Yes we do. It's only been 13 years since 9/11 and that action has faded fast.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
