Terrorism in America?


Terrorism in America?

Think tank tallies 64 terror plots targeting American homeland since 9/11

The frightening plot to kill 150 National Guard members that unraveled last week when FBI agents nabbed two Chicago-area cousins was the 64th case since 9/11 of Islamist terrorists plotting to strike on American soil, according to a new report that warns the radicalizing influence of ISIS must be dealt with in the U.S. and abroad.

Illinois National Guardsman Hasan Edmonds, 22, was nabbed last Wednesday at Chicago's Midway Airport, where he was trying to board a plane enroute to the Middle East to join ISIS, according to authorities. Jonas Edmonds, 29, intended to don his cousin's uniform and mount a one-man attack on the Joliet Armory, where Hasan’s National Guard unit was based, authorities said.

Like most of the post-9/11 terror attacks planned against Americans in their homeland, the plot was thwarted. But analysts, including experts at the Heritage Foundation, which tracks each case, saythe number of attempts will continue to climb, and more plots are likely to succeed without aggressive counter-measures.

{ Destroying Isis won't get rid of the threat of terrorism against America but it would surely help. They seem to be experts at propaganda in foreign countries convincing many citizens to take action against the establishment in their own nations or to come to Iraq or Syria to join their forces.

Another concern is just how do we and others destroy Isis? After six months of bombing them it seems they have become even stronger. They are forced out of one area and just take over another. Many experts said right at the beginning that air operation against Isis would not be enough. Boots on the ground would be necessary.

The problem is everyone is waiting to see if America will send in their military so they can stay home and read the newspaper. Nations like Turkey with one of the largest standing armies in the world and are right next door do nothing. Isis may win by default. What can be done? With all these homegrown attempted attacks on our soil how long can we put up with [sign in to see URL] Isis? Are we going to be the first to put boots on the ground? Will we have to do it alone? Should we do it at all? What do you think?}

Re: Terrorism in America?


You have our sympathy. we are under attack or plans for an attack are on going.
It could get to a stage, that Muslims are not trusted in sensitive posts.
