There is a suggested list of targets for lone-wolf, or individually executed, terror attacks, including New York’s Times Square, casinos and night clubs in Las Vegas, oil tankers and trains, the Georgia Military College, the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, and General Atomics defense contractor in San Diego.
“This recipe gives you the ability to make a car bomb even in countries with tight security and surveillance,” one article reads, before providing a “shopping list” of supplies needed to make such a bomb, including cooking gas, oxygen gas, a barometer, decoration lamps and matches.
I have long believed that the absense of 9/11-style organized Muslim terror attacks against the United States has been a matter of choice on the part of the Muslim terrorists. For whatever reason they have refrained from what they could obviously do.
Well, it seems obvious to me, at least: You cannot have a country whose borders permit literally millions of illegal crossings, not to mention the passage of vast amounts of drugs and other contraband, and still believe that you are immune to attacks that can be carried out by a relative handful of trained, dedicated men willing to die for a cause.
In other words: If a Muslim terror gang like ISIL has made the decision to breach whatever decisions have been holding Muslims back from other attacks here in the US since 9/11, then we can expect to see some rather spectacular examples that will likely expose just how much “theater” there is in our “security theater” defenses.
Which means Americans will start dying right here at home. And any administration that thinks it can “handle” the fallout from something like that is going to be sadly, and badly, surprised.
