Even while unspeakable horrors are being committed abroad, most people here at home are concerned about the economy. But within a twinkling of an eye we could find ourselves on the precipice of a global conflagration with Islamic totalitarians and their jihadists envoys of terror.
Judicial Watch reports that ”Islamic terrorist groups are operating in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez and planning to attack the United States with car bombs or other vehicle borne improvised explosive devices (VBIED).”
“High-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources have confirmed to Judicial Watch that a warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border has been issued. Agents across a number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies have all been placed on alert and instructed to aggressively work all possible leads and sources concerning this imminent terrorist threat. Specifically, the government sources reveal that the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) is confirmed to now be operating in Juarez, a famously crime-infested narcotics hotbed situated across from El Paso, Texas.”
And for those who need a lesson on geography, Ciudad Juarez is right across the river from El Paso Texas which is home to America’s only tank division, the Army’s 1st Armored Division.
But many of you will say, oh don’t be an alarmist. Really? Well, what about this warning from King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia?As reported by the Washington Times, the king has a stark warning to America: “The Islamic State’s terror will visit American shores in one month if it is not confronted in Syria and Iraq. “If we ignore them, I am sure they will reach Europe in a month and America in another month. Terrorism knows no border and its danger could affect several countries outside the Middle East. […] It is no secret to you, what they have done and what they have yet to do. I ask you to transmit this message to your leaders: ‘Fight terrorism with force, reason and speed.”
Now, I gotta tell ya, I take anything coming out of Saudi Arabia with more than a grain of skepticism, but there is some truth in what King Abdullah states. And I guess he should know about terrorism coming to America’s shores — since most of the 9-11 terrorists were Saudis. As well, many in the House of Saud are financing ISIS.King Abdullah is watching his little Sunni terrorist monster running out of control and he doesn’t want to take any responsibility. The time is coming when we must realize if this enemy comes again to our shores, we must respond without impunity and firm resolve to forever crush Islamo-fascism.
Resolute leadership would force the Arab street to take action itself against ISIS — we all know they possess the capability and resources to do such – but perhaps they, as well as President Obama don’t want to? And so as we again seem directionless, the enemy marches on — and their sponsors become more concerned.
We all remember the economic ramifications of 9-11. Imagine with our current weak economy what such another attack, along a more porous border, could inflict upon our economic system. I know the president yesterday was with his acolytes in Wisconsin — union members – I guess he has a plan for them.
It’s quite disconcerting that Obama — before another friendly crowd of Muslim Brotherhood members — in his 2009 Cairo speech seemed to hint that because of his background, the Islamic world would be very accommodating to his will and wishes — way wrong. As a matter of fact, they’ve seen his retreat as weakness and now since his “pivot” from the Middle East, we find a more explosive region.
We must realize this ISIS issue didn’t just happen two months ago, it has been festering and growing for nearly four years — and dismissed for as many years. Now that the threat is knocking on our door, are we ready to confront it?
Ladies and gents, our economic security is directly related to our national security, the latter being the preeminent responsibility of the federal government. We can never experience growth, opportunity, and prosperity for the American people if we cannot keep them safe and secure. That is the challenge we currently face, and my concern is that either the fella in the White House doesn’t have a plan, or the plan he does is for the wrong side.
