    It doesn't matter. Propaganda isn't the truth anyway.

    Mornin Ikari. Well we do have people watching the twitter.....but then I think it was more to do with that group Khorasan. Yesterday they mentioned they were concerned about lone Wolf Attacks after ISIS released a video calling for the lone Wolves to do something.


    Syrian Airstrikes Raise Lone Wolf Terror Threat in US, Feds Warn

    American airstrikes in Syria overnight halted the threat of terrorist attacks in the U.S. homeland from organized groups like ISIS and al Qaeda, but raised the specter of angry lone-wolf sympathizers carrying out an attack on their own, federal authorities said today. The American airborne offensive could potentially embolden self-radicalized terrorists to strike inside the homeland, the Department of Homeland Security and FBI say in a joint bulletin issued to local, state and federal law enforcement late today.

    While “single events generally do not provoke an immediate response” from homegrown extremists, “[W]e believe these strikes will contribute to homegrown violent extremists’ … broader grievances about U.S. military intervention in predominantly Muslim lands, possibly motivating Homeland attacks,” according to the bulletin. The bulletin notes ISIS’ prolific online campaign and cites a recent audio message from ISIS that called for “lone offender attacks in the Homeland in retaliation for U.S. military operations in Iraq and Syria,” as the bulletin put it. And though “in the near term” most homegrown terrorists will try to join groups overseas rather than carry out their own attacks in the United States, authorities “cannot rule out the possibility … that some [homegrown terrorists], acting alone or in small groups, could attempt simple attacks with little or no warning,” according to the bulletin.

    The bulletin stresses the “importance” of the American public reporting suspicious behavior and “remain[ing] vigilant.” ....snip~

    Meh, what's the probability on that happening? Pretty sure my probability of death today has not changed from its historic values.

    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.

    Well, if you can't trust Osama bin Laden to speak the truth about his motives then who can you trust?

    Bin Laden's letter to America was thin propaganda meant to target the weak willed and spin them against the US. It worked. Al Qaeda's actual motive in their attacks is to start a war. They WANT a war with the West not because of something we did, but because war with the West is part of their bat**** crazy plan to create the new Caliphate.
