    Radicalism is spreading around the world, even in the US. Islam is just one of the pretexts. There are others.

    Still, none of it overshadows what ISIS is doing and has done. Again the problem is more and more are thinking that their way will be the Way of Islam. Which s why we are seeing it be embraced by others in other countries.

    ISIS is the result of the US government trying to ouster the Syrian President who then in turn targeted all the moderates for killing so that the radicals would create a diversion of attention from him. So far, he is winning. ISIS won't.

    ISIS basically has now taken out most of the MB backed Syrian Rebel/Terrorists. Also ruining BO peeps plan on training and equipping them.

    These will give you incite as to what is going on with ISIS.

    The FBI has warned local authorities of a threat that Islamic State militants would blow up the Memphis & Arkansas Bridge spanning the Mississippi River, an agency spokesman said on Tuesday.

    "This is an unsubstantiated, anonymous threat," he said, adding that there was no useful intelligence arising from it.

    The television station quoted the FBI warning as saying that according to an anonymous tipster, Islamic State had instructed a person in Memphis "to blow up the Memphis-Arkansas bridge on an unknown date, activating ISIS terror cells in the United States.".....snip~

    Let's stop here and think, what is the point of this?

    Do they want people to NOT use the bridge? Do they want to alert the bad guys that they are on to them? Or do they merely want to use fear over the holidays to keep the American sheeple aware that they really are unsafe anywhere, that the whole world, Ebola and alien spacecraft are out to kill them every second of every day.

    I strongly suggest the people behind this need to be relocated to the outer reaches of Libya and not ever come home until they find the guys who killed Ambassador Stephens Clearly they have no idea of what they're doing, responding to an anonymous, unsubstantiated report is stupid on top of asinine and dangerous; now every six year old kid with a computer knows he can shut down anything with an anonymous and unsubstantiated threat.

    When I first moved to the US as a boy, we would have Nuclear Attack drills, where we would be instructed to lie on the floor, under our desks when the H-Bomb hit. We lived near a Nike base, the missile not the shoe, and were a direct hit threat. We would be incinerated in an attack, the exercise only served to terrify a lot of children.

    Nothing changes it seems

    Say what.....Debate Politics isn't a credible source? What does that have to do with all those links put up by many different people and in all those threads concerning ISIS and what is going on with them. New Sources from all around the World. Many of them in each of those threads. I doubt All the Different News Sources and links weren't credible.

    When disaffected people include whole tribes of people. It is already beyond the stage of just being random radicals.

    I consider things such as monographs from the National Defense University credible sources. I do not consider links to message board discussions based on fox news reports reliable primary sources.

    Anybody can say that anybody else is going to do anything, but until it's checked out, it's just an unsubstantiated threat. What the FBI is doing is letting everybody know there's a threat out there.
