DHS warns police about ISIS retaliation for airstrikes in ME

We've had warnings like this before, but the potential for it really happening is much higher now. ISIS is well-funded, is riding a string of successes and certainly has assets in place here. They've said they will strike here, and you can bank on them giving it a try.

The Department of Homeland Security and FBI said that while they are “unaware of any specific, credible threats against the Homeland” and find most threats to the U.S. homeland by supporters of ISIS “not credible,”



We have been hearing this nonsense for over 10 years now.

I guess we are now in condition HOT PINK.

To me, what's scary is that it's unlikely we're going to get a "heads up" from the Arab/Islamic community within the U.S..

When American ISIS terrorists return from the MidEast, or when there are ISIS inspired homegrown terrorists, they have to mingle to some degree in the U.S. Arab/Islamic community. And despite CAIR's rhetoric about how U.S. LE is spying on Arab groups and communities, Arab groups and communities have not provided any leads to possible dangers, even when they have suspicions.

ISIS is out to get us whether we strike them or not. They want to dictate our foreign policy. Is there any testosterone left in Washington DC? I'm really sick of hearing from these ******s. We should have started carpet bombing ISIS right after that video and it should be going on now.

Why couldn't there be another Boston Marathon size event? It only took a couple of whackadoos.

It would clearly be possible to scale up to the size of Oklahoma City with a little difficulty in getting the fertilizer.

The Anarchist's Cookbook used to have some recipes, I'm not sure about the latest incantation:
http://www.freeinfosociety.com/pdfs/...okbook2000.pdf

Then there is the US Army Improvised Munitions manual:
https://archive.org/details/milmanua...tions-handbook

Our southern border is completely open, there's no need to fly into JFK.

Relatively small scale events would be quite easy for a couple of terrorists.

All that said, I think these statements are really just 'fund raisers'. Most have some message that 'for only $xxxB more, we could narrow this stuff down'.

I have more to worry about from the DHS, DOJ or the IRS than ISIS right now.

Mumbai or Beslan? It is coming. An unsecured southern border and cells are already here. We have been hearing it for a decade because well, they've tried before. A jihadi trying to blow up folks in an OK stadium. A jihadi trying to blow up a skyscraper in Dallas. Just look at the fear they struck in people during the Boston Marathon and those guys weren't that organize or smart. Only foolish people think it won't happen here........again.

A Mumbai is a best case scenario. If that happens here, our resources and mentality are far different than what was available in Mumbai. I honestly dont think that it would last more than an hour with the resources that the terrorists had available if it occurred here. We don't run, and we have modern weapons and training, not .303 Enfields with 5 rounds.

Beslan scares the **** out of me. The key to stopping a Beslan type incident is in the first few minutes and not letting the terrorist get established. Crash cars into the building knock as many holes into walls as you can, get as many people out as possible, keep them from digging in. There will be casualties, but don't let them start sawing peoples heads off for the media. That type of incident is going to be about limiting casualties while denying resources, movement, and bodies.

A Mumbai or Beslan type of attack is a matter of when. They're already here.

I agree that it will be Mumbai or Beslan style attacks. Easy, cheap and terrifying.

However i believe that it will happen in smaller locales. Nypd, lapd,metro-dade etc have far too many resources and highly trained cops. The attack would get squashed immediately.

Go to Harold Square around Christmas and start counting cops...then remind yourself that there are plenty more that you cant pick out

6-10 schools spread throughout suburban America...simultaneously...that would be a horrendous.
