Fearmonger Escalation!

ISIS PREPARING TO DESTROY AN AMERICAN CITY, U.S. SENATOR SAYS Ready for the latest round of fearmongering from American officials?  Good … because it’s ready for you. The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is preparing to destroy a major American city – or so says U.S. Sen. James…


Ready for the latest round of fearmongering from American officials?  Good … because it’s ready for you.

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is preparing to destroy a major American city – or so says U.S. Sen. James Inhofe (“R”- Oklahoma).  In fact according to Inhofe – a member of the Senate’s armed services committee – the terrorist organization is “rapidly developing” the technology needed to pull off such an attack.

“ISIS, they are really bad terrorists, they’re so bad even al-Qaeda is afraid of them,” Inhofe told KOKH-TV 25 (Fox – Oklahoma City). “They’re crazy out there and they’re rapidly developing a method of blowing up a major U.S. city and people just can’t believe that’s happening.”

Inhofe is the latest in a long ling of U.S. officials urging an escalation of American military involvement in the Middle East.  These officials believe that unless America steps up military operations against ISIS, the war is headed to U.S. soil.

Specifically, they want America to engage militarily in Syria – where the United States has previously been engaged on ISIS’ side.

Efforts to launch American military action in Syria were unsuccessful last fall – despite the best efforts of warmongers like U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham.

Now Graham and others are ratcheting up the fear again in the hopes of provoking a confrontation.

“Analysts estimate that ISIS has amassed a cash hoard of between $400 million and $2 billion,” former U.S. Senate staffer Brett Budowsky wrote recently in The Hill .  “It is highly probable that ISIS will attempt to use some of this money to obtain nuclear, chemical, biological or other weapons of mass death on the international black market or from corrupt officials in nations such as Russia, China, Pakistan or North Korea to use in attacks against New York, Washington, London, Paris, Berlin, Rome, Brussels or other nations it considers infidel enemies.”

Hmmmm …

Here’s the problem with expanded American intervention in the Middle East, though: It doesn’t work.  Seriously … $4-6 trillion (and nearly 7,000 lives) later, America’s “War on Terror” clearly has not made our country safer.

Considering that the US helped to create the IS, it’s no surprise that people on the armed services committee might know of their next move. Lindsey probably know cause McCain told him after he was over in Syria palling around with the IS last year.

Rocky August 25, 2014 at 12:33 pm

A smart terrorist wouldn’t cross the southern border – illegally. Too much risk of getting caught or deported. Better to have an Iraqi passport, get a Visa from the US Embessy and stay below the radar.

Even better, a Saudi passport.

ISIS’s stated goal is to form a Sunni Islamic Caliphate in the Levant.

Were the US to adhere to George Washington’s farewell address etc…hete is a partial list of enemies that ISIS would need to deal with before threatening the USA:

Shia Syrians
Shia Iraqis
Saudi Arabia
Gulf States
Central Asian Republics
Eastern Europe
Western Europe

Slartibartfast August 25, 2014 at 12:29 pm

I see it more as a matter of misdirection. While we quibble and wobble about troops, assassins have already crossed our southern border. I just looked at that last sentence.. 10 years ago, I would have thought it too radical.

Rocky August 25, 2014 at 12:24 pm

I think a fair analysis of ISIS is that it consists of three different groups. Only one is a significant threat to the US. The first group is disgruntled Sunni’s in Syria who see ISIS as providing resources. The second group is the discgruntled Sunni’s in Iraq who see ISIS as providing resources. The Sunni’s in Iraq bring to ISIS operational and organizational skills as they are prior Ba’athists and / or former Iraqi military. Both those groups are secular and if given a reason to break from ISIS – would do so. The third is the hard-core ISIS fanatics who are activaly trying to create a war between Sunni’s and Shi’ite – the goal being to erradicate the Shi’ite group and expand their caliphate from Syria to Tehran. (A lofty if not attainable goal). The ones dangerous to us are the last group because they will be willing to strike at the West. But, they are also the smallest group – and when segregated from the others – are easier to track and eliminate. But getting groups one and two to leave ISIS is the job of the local governing groups (i.e. Syrian and Iraqi governments). The West, along with Iran and oddly Israel – can deal with the nut jobs via drone and other black magic.

Of course in usual fashion – McCain and Graham – the amnesty twins – just want to lump them al into an evil axis of Hitler / Japan to sell us on spending more defense cash.

I wish I could buy bullets cheaper for target practice. Everytime something like this happens, the prices goes up. I have a nice Carbine, but I can’t afford target practice with it.

The old saying “The enemy of my enemy is my friend”… that’s a that a crock of shit.
Fear controls the masses and now we’ve got a bipolar country full of
zombies who can’t think for themselves and regurgitate what BS cable
news/talk radio they heard.

Isis ain’t got shit on a typical Southern boy. It may be a bluff by Isis, but bring that shit on. I’d love to get some target practice.

CorruptionInColumbia August 25, 2014 at 12:49 pm

While I would not be keen on the steel cased ammo (wear and tear on your gun), the “prvi partisan” stuff I’ve shot in handguns was clean and accurate.

Hope this helps.

That”s way cheaper than Cabela’s. Thanks.

CorruptionInColumbia August 25, 2014 at 12:51 pm

Glad to help. I didn’t go completely through the ammoseek list but have used them to find certain loads for different guns that I was in short supply on, usually with good results.

CorruptionInColumbia August 25, 2014 at 1:02 pm

I haven’t shot any Browning ammo in decades but I recall the city cops in my home town swore by their .357 Magnum 158 grain JSP loads back in the 70’s. They claimed a noticeably stouter recoil and blast from it but I couldn’t tell much difference in it and my own handloads or Remington ammo I was using.

Any way, this one was on the ammoseek list. Seems to have a good rating and isn’t bad in quantity for the money.

Check Their Heads August 25, 2014 at 12:33 pm

Yes .. uh-huh. And out border with Mexico is secure. Uh-huh, yeah, right.
What are they going to blow up level one of our major cities with? A grenade? A rocket launcher? Or maybe they will drive a Chevy truck across the border with the amigos? You know, one of those pick-ups with a anti aircraft gun mounted to the back.
Instead of Lindsey Graham doing the psycho babble terrorist this and terrorist that, since nobody pays him much mind, he is using others by proxy to spew his baloney.
Think about it. We have a wide open UN-SECURE border with Mexico, hundreds of thousands coming across it illegally, and politicians want to scream we need to attack Syria to keep terrorist from setting foot inside the homeland.
Boy, are they suffering from dementia, you think?

Thomas August 25, 2014 at 12:56 pm

Here is how I see it:

Russia invades Afghanistan. The US trains and supports Mujahideen (or Al Qaeda, Bin Laden’s CIA army) to fight Russia. Keep in mind Saudi Arabia is also complicit in all US policy in the Middle East. Russia runs out because the US introduces Stinger missiles changing the battlefield. The US soon abandoned the Mujahideen/Al Qaeda. 911 was known to happen as early as August 1999 (see Sgt Major Dan Page). 911 was carried out by Saudi Arabian actors. Bin Laden a Saudi National, is blamed. Five Arab countries taken down in seven years is revealed to Gen Wes Clark two days after 911. Algeria, Libya, Iraq, Egypt all have current government leaders arrested. Syria, Iran, and Sudan round out what Gen Clark testifies too. Syrian rebels (Al Qaeda) aided by US Libyan arms transfers fail to overturn Assad’s government. Benghazi actors are murdered, arms transfers and support dries up. Plan B is to have Al Qaeda rebels in Syria return to Iraq, steal cash, arms, and overthrow Maliki. Accomplished, the US plans to nuke an American city to stoke fear and formalize another pretext to overturn Syria then Iran with US ground forces with an establishment President in 2016.

We ignored the Taliban for years, stories came out about them destroying religious monuments and such. “There over there, they can’t get here, yada, yada, yada.” And yet those cave dwellers and goat fuckers did come visit us. I guess some think it’s ok to lose 3,000 people, a fist full of buildings and a gut punch to the economy every decade or so, I don’t. One thing is dead certain, whether we fight them next week or two years (or so) from now we will be fighting them, the difference is how much death and destruction we want to suffer before we pull our heads out of the sand.

Found this article interesting and it proves the point, this isn’t about religion, they just use religion as a cover to do their dirty deeds. These bugs (ISIS) are just plain cold blooded killers that won’t stop until they are killed.

No, it’s definitely religion. Islam has been creating trouble since its inception. Ask the Byzantines how being in close proximity to Muslims worked out.

Bible Thumper August 25, 2014 at 3:33 pm

This is a complex subject. Islam has had peaceful periods while the Byzantium was having its “Christian” Iconoclast wars and Europe its “Thirty Years” wars.

The most important quote from your link.
The analysts concluded that “a well-established religious identity actually protects against violent radicalisation”
Young rudderless males are the most likely to be radicalized. Many are new converts.

Dave Chappelle August 25, 2014 at 4:14 pm


While I appreciate your perspective, I have personally enjoyed a few trips to that fun area. I can agree that they are “cold-blooded killers.” However, I don’t buy the notion that religion plays no part.

EJB August 26, 2014 at 6:59 am

The part religion plays is the cover these bugs use to propagate their terror. There may be other outlets that are pushing Islam and use white guilt to gain toeholds but these bugs are after only one thing, killing and making people suffer. Other than the words they use there is no real religious component.

Time in primitive societies moves a lot slower. Those who hate modernity do not want it to move it all. Even so, some GOPers readily acknowledge that the fallout from Bush’s mistakes and spending didn’t end with his administration. This morning Scarborough admitted that today’s terrorist threats are the outcome of Bush’s war in Iraq. Joe rightly said that the problem with 43’s war on terror in Iraq is that the terrorists weren’t in Iraq.

TyroneMamaCollards August 26, 2014 at 10:30 am

What bothers me is that in order to spread democracy to the Mideast, we toppled tyrants like Khaddafi and Sadam Hussein, only to have those nations replaced by thugs and killers masquerading as proto-states. We went from the frying pan into the fire over there. Query whether we would be better off if we had just left those bad guys alone. Look at the Arab Spring. All the foment, but not of the sugar. It did nothing to help the ordinary people over there. Their governments came down harder. I think the mid-east is a boiling cauldron best left alone. We take 3 steps forward and go back 4 steps. Yet we have a duty to snuff out terrorism but how do you do that with terrorist groups calling themselves a nation, and when we kill one group, three more spring up, like in a horror movie.
