    ISIS wants to build up it's caliphate, to think they would attack us on our soil, now? doesn't make much sense in a strategic way.


    Scaring americans with ambiguous warnings wont make you safer, maybe less free, but not safer.
    And dismissing threats is a sure path to failure

    How do you Figure?
    Perhaps it's the Misuse of the word 'terrorist'.
    Because 5000+ People died in November Alone from Jihadist Violence.

    Lots of GOOFY posts here about "Lightning Strikes", "Lottery Tickets", and "Asteroid Strikes", when 7 people died in EVERY HOUR in November from Islamist/Jihadist Violence, including by ISIS.

    Charts at Link.

    Got it?

    SPEAK ENGLISH.

    Calling themselves "Islamic State" is aspirational. Us calling them that bring it nearer. It recognises and validates their claim, and their extremist agenda. Call them "Daesh" or like the BBC, preface the use of the name with "the so-called" IS.

    If 5k/mo were an average rather than a high point...

    60,000 /yr per 7,100,000,000 inhabitants
    What the incidence rate per 100,000 there?
    Almost 1 per 100,000?

    While terrorism and threat of terrorism is real, danger must be dealt with rationally. imho. ymmv
    I may be wrong.

    Mornin Vic. Yeah two of the ones they busted in NY said they wanted to join ISIS. That if they could not they wanted to attack NY City Cops and then the one guy stated. He wanted to kill BO.

    Both said that they would do whatever ISIS told them to do. Looks like the one that was in Florida was their recruiter. He was also down there to get a job working with, cell-phones.

    Like the FBI said.....this is more than some people looking on the Internet for stuff about ISIS. In most cases there is contact. Once that takes place. Its all on another level and this type of threat has to be countered.

    Again, we can't afford to miss once.....and all the enemy has to do. Is strike once.
