When the enemy has been allowed to act with impunity, his boldness grows exponentially. And so it is with Islamo-fascists and jihadists, who are certainly here in America seeing the “coexist” bumper stickers and hearing President Barack Hussein Obama state that ISIS is not “Islamic” — I’m just glad they’re not Southern Baptist because then Obama and the Left would truly take action. So while we were enjoying a weekend of college and pro football, those non-Islamic, Islamic State in Iraq and Syria chaps were busy.
As Fox News reports, “A law enforcement bulletin obtained by FoxNews.com warned that Islamic State fighters have increased calls for “lone wolves” to attack U.S. soldiers in America in recent months, citing one tweet that called for jihadists to find service members’ addresses online and then “show up and slaughter them.” There will be “a continued call – by Western fighters in Syria and terrorist organizations – for lone offender attacks against U.S. military facilities and personnel,” warned a July law enforcement intelligence bulletin from the Central Florida Intelligence Exchange (CFIE), a state-run agency that gathers, assesses and shares threat information and works with the Department of Homeland Security. “These threats will most likely increase should the U.S. or its allies attack the Islamic State of Iraq and Sham (ISIS) in Syria or Iraq.”
Fox says “killing U.S. troops on American soil is an increasing focus of jihadists, according to the CFIE bulletin, titled “Continued Threat to Military Personnel from Al Qaeda Inspired Homegrown Violent Extremists.” It was sent out on July 8, 2014, “in response to recent social media messaging from Western fighters in Syria calling for attacks against “soldiers in the West.” Instead of luring radicalized Americans to the Middle East, Islamic State will likely encourage them to stay home and kill U.S. soldiers here, the bulletin warned.”
Interesting — while the NSA is listening in on Grandma talk about her apple pie recipe, the Central Florida Intelligence Exchange is doing its job and providing assessments and estimates.
In a strange coincidence, our Editor-in-Chief received a phone call over the weekend from a Middle Eastern man in Michigan claiming he was with me in Iraq in 2004 and wanted to know where I live. The only problem is, I wasn’t in Iraq in 2004.
Of course I can hear all the cultural jihadist apologists sighing and rolling their eyes, saying here we go again with the fear mongering talk. Well, perhaps they need to be reminded of the heinous and barbaric attack against a young British Soldier named Lee Rigby by two Nigerian jihadists.
Rigby was hacked to death with machetes in broad daylight as people watched — and the savages with their blood stained hands gave a speech recorded on somebody’s phone. Then they just waited for police to come. So you apologists can hide behind your own fear and desire to dismiss this enemy.
Then perhaps you should be reminded of one converted jihadist named Carlos Bledsoe and his jihadist attack against two U.S. Army Soldiers at a Little Rock, Ark recruiting station — killing one.
And of course there was that incident of “workplace violence” at Ft. Hood Texas at the hands of one Nidal Hasan — who has requested to be a “citizen” of the caliphate. As a matter of fact, ISIS used Hasan’s actions as a glowing example of what to do.
Fox says “a commenter on the Ansar Al-Mujahideen English Forum reposted a 2009 statement from radicalized American Adam Gadahn, now a senior Al Qaeda leader, praising Hasan.”The Mujahid brother Nidal Hasan, lightly armed but with a big heart, a strong will and a confident step, again brought into focus the weaknesses and vulnerabilities of America … and most significantly, the Mujahid brother Nidal Hasan is a pioneer, a trailblazer and a role model who has opened the door, lit a path and shown the way forward for every Muslim among the unbelievers and yearns to discharge his duty to Allah and play a part in the defense of Islam and Muslims against the savage, heartless and bloody Zionist Crusader assault on our religion, sacred places and homelands,” read the statement.”
“In one example cited in the CFIE bulletin, a British jihadist encouraged radicals still living in the West to use Facebook and LinkedIn to find and target soldiers. “You could literally search for soldiers, find their town, photos of them, look for address in Yellowbook or something,” the tweet read. “Then show up and slaughter them.”
And in typical Obama administration fashion, last Thursday, Peter Boogaard, a spokesman for the Department of Homeland Security, told FoxNews.com that “there is no credible intelligence at this time to suggest that there is an active plot by (ISIS) to carry out an attack in the United States.”
Interestingly, the warning bulletin came out quite sometime before last week’s indictment of the man in New York, Mufid Elfgeeh, who was arrested late May in a Walmart parking lot after a sting in which an FBI informant offered to sell him guns and silencers, which Elfgeeh allegedly wanted to use to kill returning American troops as well as Shiite Muslims living in the region.
The military teaches us to always plan and prepare for the enemy’s most dangerous course of action — not the most politically correct ideologically desired action– which is what Obama prefers – but the most dangerous action. Plots have been foiled plots by Islamic jihadists against Ft. Dix and US Marine Corps Base, Quantico — and those are the ones we know about. So how can we be prepared?
First of all don’t become a desirable target. Second, make sure you’re utilizing the “buddy team” concept and not setting yourself up as an easily isolated target.
You must be cognizant of your surroundings and environment, and be on the lookout for things or individuals which are not routine. Remember ISIS was calling for attacks on Australian civilians in Sydney — public beheadings, you know, the practice that John Kerry stated has nothing to do with Islam.
At least in America we still have our Second Amendment rights to arm and protect ourselves. But we still haven’t taken any actions to arm our men and women on our military installations. I can assure you major installations like Ft. Bragg, Ft. Hood, Camp Lejeune or Camp Pendleton have maneuver areas, which can be easily infiltrated. And for marine and naval installations we cannot disregard water areas of approach.
In addition, we must review our MEVAs (Mission Essential Vulnerable Areas) on those installations — especially family housing areas. I’d like to hear what the Pentagon is specifically doing to harden our military installation security. Another sector we must not forget are those service members working in major urban centers such as at the Pentagon, who take late night public transportation home — like D.C. Metro. How can they be protected and should they be allowed concealed carry — even if they reside in Washington D.C?
This is a new security environment and we have to realize that our continental United States is part of the 21st century battlefield, especially our military installations and troops. All the federal elected officials are back home campaigning — how about asking them if they’ve read the CFIE report and what are their solutions?
Regardless, I dare any of the progressive socialist Leftists — allies of the Islamo-fascists — to start talking about assaulting the Second Amendment and gun control…and I am specifically talking about Michael Bloomberg who I am quite sure has plenty of personal security.
To my brothers and sisters still in uniform and to veterans, let us not cower and stop wearing our uniforms or wearing our U.S. military articles — but be vigilant, aware and stay alert. Watch your six and keep your eyes open — and protect your families because they jihadists have no conscience. And if you are engaged, return fire with fury and make them pay — unlike Obama, never “outsource” your security.
And for ISIS and the global Islamo-fascist movement, I have two words: Molon Labe.
