France launched airstrikes on targets in Raqqa, Syria, the ′capitol′ of the caliphate of the Islamic State. At least ten jet fighter-bombers were dispatched dropping some 20 bombs on the ISIS stronghold. Across Europe, the manhunt continues for the Islamic terrorists involved in Friday′s Paris attacks. Authorities have identified Salah Abdeslam as one of those jihadis and are looking for him in Belgium. Another man, Abdelhamid Abaaoud, now thought to be in Syria fighting with ISIS, may have been the ′mastermind′ behind the attacks in France. Meanwhile, another ISIS ′mastermind′, known as Al Ghareeb the Algerian, released a video threatening more Paris-like attacks in Washington, DC and across Europe.
French police have made some 23 arrests and Belgian police are also conducting sweeps and raid, including one this morning in the town of Molenbeek. Abdeslam′s brother, Ibrahim, died in the Paris attacks. Belgian police arrested and questioned another brother, Mohammed, who lived in Molenbeek. Abdeslam may have been a driver who took a group of terrorists to the Bataclan concert hall in Paris. Two vehicles left near the crime scenes were rentals from Belgium. Even after the borders were ′closed′ on Friday night, Abdelslam managed to drive another rental car back into Belgium talking his way through a border checkpoint.
While the Barack Obama administration is still saying that there are no ′credible threats′ against the United States, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, ISIL, also known as ISIS – the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, is naming Washington DC as a target. An ′ISIS Kill List′ has also been recently released, naming some 100 American soldiers, along with addresses. So it seems to me that there are some ′credible threats′ given what we have seen.
In the past few weeks, ISIS has ramped up its war against Western Civilization. Bringing down a Russian airliner over the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt. Bombings in Beirut and Baghdad. Another event, not claimed directly by ISIS but possibly ′inspired′ by them was the ′mass stabbings′ at the University of California campus at Merced. Faisal Mohammed was reported to have been angry over being kicked out of a study group and attacked four members of it. A construction worker fought with him until campus police arrived and shot the suspect to death. However, we now know that Faisal left a manifesto and was definitely radicalized and a supporter of ISIS.
The FBI has confirmed several times that they have investigations in all 50 states of potential terrorists with ties to ISIS. Even Michigan′s governor, Rick Snyder, whom previously wanted 50,000 Syrian refugees brought to Michigan, has now reversed and wants none! So there is no doubt that many terrorists are already here and more are on the way. Either by slipping through our porous, wall-less border, or flown here by the Obama administration as part of their refugee program. The stupidity and naivety of the White House is only exceeded by the line up of Democrat presidential candidates. Like Obama, neither Hillary Rodham Clinton, Bernie Sanders or Martin O′Malley could even mention the word Islam or Islamic in describing radical jihad during Saturday′s debate.
So there it is, folks! France is launching airstrikes, Vladimir Putin of Russia wants the United Nations to form a coalition while Barack Obama still plays footsie with the Islamic State. Sure, he kills a few now and then with a drone strike. Big deal! I′ve been saying all along that what is needed is to fill the skies over Raqqa, Syria with a thousand planes dropping thousands of bombs. Blast the heck out of ISIS! Turn the place into a wasteland. As for the refugees, Donald Trump has the best solution, set up a safe zone in Syria and let the refugees stay home. Obama and Hillary Clinton started this mess by abandoning Iraq, the Kurds and stirring up trouble across the region with the Muslim Brotherhood and the Arab Spring. Obama′s half-brother has a US-based charity funding the Brotherhood! Lois Lerner gave it IRS, non-profit status in under 2 weeks! When will we wake up and realize what Obama and Hillary have done?
In 2011, the Islamic State consisted of 12 guys, former Sunni militants run out of Iraq and into Syria by George W. Bush and his ′surge′. Now, ISIS has over 60,000 troops, controls millions of people, makes millions of dollars from black-market oil, selling most of it to our so-called ally, Turkey, and is threatening the whole world. I doubt if even Tom Clancy or Ian Fleming could have thought this story line up!
