    State Department warns: ISIS attacks outside of the Middle East may be coming.....

    State Dept has initiated a Worldwide Alert today. Saying attacks outside the ME are coming. DHS says they didn't hear anything about ISIS in Mexico. What say ye?



    The Department of State remains concerned about the continued threat of terrorist attacks, demonstrations, and other violent actions against U.S. citizens and interests overseas. On September 22, 2014, the United States and regional partners commenced military action against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), a designated terrorist organization in Syria and Iraq. In response to the airstrikes, ISIL called on supporters to attack foreigners wherever they are. Authorities believe there is an increased likelihood of reprisal attacks against U.S., Western and coalition partner interests throughout the world, especially in the Middle East, North Africa, Europe, and Asia…..Extremists may elect to use conventional or non-conventional weapons, and target both official and private interests. Examples of such targets include high-profile sporting events, residential areas, business offices, hotels, clubs, restaurants, places of worship, schools, public areas, shopping malls, and other tourist destinations both in the United States and abroad where U.S. citizens gather in large numbers, including during holidays.

    U.S. citizens are reminded of the potential for terrorists to attack public transportation systems and other tourist infrastructure. Extremists have targeted and attempted attacks on subway and rail systems, aviation, and maritime services. In the past, these types of attacks have occurred in cities such as Moscow, London, Madrid, Glasgow, and New York City. State’s worldwide travel warning, however, was not updated to include North America.....snip~

    ISIS might try to attack the US and/or Europe. Wow!

    And, in other news, it's expected to be colder this winter than it was last summer, most men still like women, we still have to pay taxes, and US elections are expected to be costly.

    What else is new?

    And, what does Mexico have to do with any of it?

    I've heard reports circling around that, though they may be rumors, that water is in fact wet.

    In all seriousness, they've BEEN working towards trying to attack us with some terrorist attacks. Top of the list for them, probably.

    Really and you just couldn't notice the difference from all that concern that was out there before....huh? What Happened? That was even knowing what the White House told them about Khorasan. Why so specific now? I thought it was always the yawn and stretch when it concerns Americans being targeted.


    In April, the only reference to ISIS in the State Department’s worldwide travel warning was relatively generic and did not reflect much urgency.

    Iraq is experiencing levels of violence not seen since 2007, and Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, formerly known as al-Qa’ida in Iraq (AQI)), is increasingly resurgent. Although U.S. interests have not been targeted directly, the threat of attacks against U.S. citizens, including kidnapping and terrorist violence, continues, even in Baghdad’s International Zone.....snip~


    Well, DHS denied they knew of any ISIS ties down in Mexico, which that came out with the 4 Kurds who tried to cross the Mexican Border a couple days ago. After DHS responded to some saying that border Patrol had arrested 4 ISIS members that had crossed the US Mexican Border.

    Four Kurds?

    I thought the Kurds were fighting on the other side.

    But, sure, seriously the nutters of ISIS could easily penetrate the US through out porous southern border.

    I guess if the DHS is actually saying that we could be attacked by ISIS, when they haven't been saying that before, that could be news.

    That ISIS might launch an attack against the west is much like saying that, as VanBasten put it, that water is wet.

    or maybe that bears actually do (bleep!) in the woods.

    A GOP congressman came out with the story.....then Judicial Watch had some info. First both DHS and WH officials denied that any got in. Then later DHS confirmed they were Kurds and not ISIS. But they did say they were PKK.

    Then today NBC scrubbed a story with some up in Canada, getting caught talking about trying to get an attack off at a mall. ISIS sympathizers or supporters.

    So, the story of ten ISIS fighters actually was about four Kurds? Sounds like a bit of an exaggeration to me.

    What happened in Canada again? NBC scrubbed a story of an attack? What? I didn't understand that last bit.

    Yeah Duncan Hunter said Border security had told him about 4 being arrested. But Judicial watch were the ones to come up with the article on ISIS in Mexico.

    State’s warning about shopping malls being used as attack sites is particularly relevant. According to a now scrubbed NBC News report, Canadian authorities recently broke up a specific plot which would have been carried out by “ISIS-inspired” militants that included gun and knife attacks at an Ottawa mall.

    “In the mall terror plan, the group discussing the attack allegedly did a walk-through of a Canadian mall, scoped out its exits and focused on an attack that would mow down people on crowded escalators,” NBC reported.....snip~

    Taken down after Canada today joined the coalition.....and will be calling in Air Strikes.

    Uh, it's the country next door to the U.S. But there is no reason to ponder this any more than one would ponder the fact that water is wet.
