I really don't know what to think about ISIS, and this is not critical of the OP.

I just don't know. On one hand, I'm concerned about a massive Media over hype, on the other hand, they are beheading people. Maybe if there had been the same consciousness of Al Qaeda, 911 might never have happened.

ISIS certainly seems to be a much more capable adversary, certainly better organized and funded.

What I do know is that if ISIS is a genuine threat, I don't have much confidence in our Political Leadership to protect us.

I went to a bookstore and asked the saleswoman "Were is the Self Help Section?" She said if she told me, it would defeat the purpose.

It seems for PC reasons we aren't allowed to acknowledge threats to our country. Nor confront such problems with a respected, viable response. Somewhat reminds me of the guy that thought he could befriend the great bears in Alaska by singing to them.  What was left of he and his girlfriend were found by the pilot that was supposed to fly them back from their camp. Guess a bear got hungry.

Makes me wonder why they want our guns so bad.  When the threat to the US and now direct threats to the president's head coming off. Not just on the POTUS, but other world leaders as well. I understand in Europe the have started making arrests of those islamists making such threats. Been going on here for some time and we bow down and say "oh don't upset them, lets be more tolerant."  Sorry, I try to be a good Christian like they want, but me standing for my beliefs makes me no less tolerant than the mulahs. Me standing in support of a country I spilled blood for and wanting to keep my rights as handed down by the founders does not make me an extremist who is a danger to his neighbor. This day and age and this group of terrorists, supported by more peoples than you know, are a true threat to us. I mean they have training facilities all around the world and more importantly than around the world, but in several places in South America. Our brother Ron eluded to porous borders in another post. Now I don't mean off color or direct anything derogatory to anyone, but dress the mulahs a certain way and teach them some spanish, could you tell them from any other border crosser...

Just sayin'..

Don't have to look too far to find issues here in the USA, which should be cleaned up first. Number one; our border.  Number two is here.

Ron, I take it you have to join to view the vid? Anyway, it's my understanding there is one such site located in GA.

As a group, veterans being cast as potential 'domestic terrorists' shows a form of logic with which I'm not familiar. More Orwellian or something…..makes one wonder whose side some of our leadership is on.

Well they say  they have cleaned up these training camps. I am one who is not so sure. Either way, they are still to close for my taste. And now in the huckle buck of Holder stepping down our lustrous leader signs another exec order allowing illegals to join the military...Hmmm???

The way I see it, these are gangsters after power, NOTHING more. The religious lies are meant to confuse our focus. They state other reasons but they behead people to provoke hatred, and then try to tell us where to direct that hatred. If we follow their directions they get more justification to use in their propaganda machine. A generalized hatred is their primary recruiting tool. When I listen to the rambling lies of murderers it is to understand their pathology without believing their rationalizations. The more angry we become, the more we need focus.This is an organization that needs to be killed from the top down. The sooner the better.

Most peoples don't even know the half of it, and more so they don't want to know as much as your leadership doesn't want them to know...

Google "Asymmetric Warfare".

9-11 was only directly involving probably 15  "believers".

 

They don't need to airlift battalions, just convince a couple of dozen fellow travelers who are already living here.

"Asymmetric warfare is war between belligerents whose relative military power differs significantly, or whose strategy or tactics differ significantly.

Asymmetric warfare can describe a conflict in which the resources of two belligerents differ in essence and in the struggle, interact and attempt to exploit each other's characteristic weaknesses. Such struggles often involve strategies and tactics of unconventional warfare, the weaker combatants attempting to use strategy to offset deficiencies in quantity or quality.[1] Such strategies may not necessarily be militarized.[2] This is in contrast to symmetric warfare, where two powers have similar military power and resources and rely on tactics that are similar overall, differing only in details and execution.

The term is frequently used to describe what is also called "guerrilla warfare", "insurgency", "terrorism", "counterinsurgency", and "counterterrorism", essentially violent conflict between a formal military and an informal, less equipped and supported, undermanned but resilient opponent"

Pretty apt description, I think. Thanks

Judging by recent events they seem to doing a good job of 'convincing' in this country. But, it's once again being labeled 'workplace violence'……an 'odd' phrase in the latest case of decapitation. Deflection of blame/origin by language is unacceptable. Unless you face up to a problem honestly, you can't deal with it, whether as an individual or a country.

In the same vein of thought, had we moved towards self sufficiency in oil resources a generation or so ago we wouldn't care who, or what, had control of the Middle East.

Anybody seen this?  They keep telling us what they're going to do but, our worthless leaders are not listening.

Just like the German Jews in 1939.

If someone repeatedly says they're going to kill you, perhaps you should listen and take precautions.

He who doesn't learn from the past is destined to repeat it.

Sadly, they have been telling us and the rest of the world this for awhile. No one was listening. Hopefully they have opened their ears now. These maniacs are slowly consuming the world using our own govts. systems to do it. I mean I'm sorry when the president of this country sets up a committee on how to deal with Islam, and it consist mostly of the muslim brotherhood and meets in the Whitehouse.. Doesn't speak so well to me.  Then we are letting the media say oh lets don't offend them... I'm sorry they chose to come here and live and I have give up my rights..... I DO NOT THINK SO!!  I have seen these pukes in action and just how they work in their own lands...  All I can say is  Wake Up America! Your Time is at Hand!

Ed, I think we would still have to care who has control of the Middle East. It's not really about oil, which is either their bargaining tool, or their hammer, not sure which. They don't hate, fear, and attack us because of oil, they hate, fear, and attack us because of who we are and what we stand for.

I know my comment was an over simplification and sounds somewhat like the anti-war protesters of a few years ago. (Odd they disappear when the other party wins election) I well remember the oil embargo of the early seventies and how it quickly led to inflation. Rates just short of twenty percent, how's that for a home loan. All nation's foreign policies come down to acting in what they feel to be their best interests. Our, and the world's economy is strongly affected by the price of oil. This, and our support of Israel has determined our policy in the Middle East since the end of WWII. At least in my opinion.

The darkness in the ME from the spread of Radical Islam has changed the complexion of the entire area. Yes, they do hate us and everything they think that we represent. These groups have to be financed by someone, some thing. It seems to be from other countries in the area whose income is primarily derived from oil production. Up until the seventies western influence was seen even in the dress of some peoples of the region. Today it's as if time has been turned back with many of these countries controlled by clerics and religious law and their societies held together by their hatred of the Western world as part of their fanaticism. Perhaps I'm wrong……..

It could be argued that had we reacted swiftly and strongly to the embassy take over in Iran under the Carter administration things would be different. Instead we were viewed as weak and they became more empowered. But, hindsight is what it is….just speculation.

No it's not, those dolts stick with their kind and turn a blind eye when it suits them & their "cause". Useful idiots, all of them, plain and simple.
