Clearly no one on planet earth is more capable of habitually eclipsing the blatant stupidity of Neville Chamberlain than this American president. This president and his minions have also invited tens of thousands of Islamic State jihadists coming out of Syria into America's cities and rural towns. Moreover, Obama and his Congressional and Administrative toadies and lackeys have done this because they care about America's national security as much they care about each and every individual 'you' out there. When the Islamic jihadist carnage erupts in America again how will you thank them for it?
I would like to note that in all of the live coverage I channel surfed to watch over the past 12 hours (CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, FoxNews, ABC, CBS and NBC), not once were the words "Islamic terrorism" mentioned by any of the dozens of on-air talking heads and their subject matter experts. Was there was an iota of doubt about the Islamic nature of the jihadists who were mowing down people at random with AK assault rifles, grenades and homicide vests shouting "allahu akhbar" throughout their rampage, or is it just plain verboten for TV anchors and their invited guests to use that phrase? Obviously it is the phrase "Islamic terrorism" which is forbidden by the government because it is politically incorrect language. Political correctness is killing us just as much as the jihadists are.
To his credit Francois Hollande, the far left Socialist and atheist President of France, refers to this assault as an "act of war." He is precisely correct, albeit very late in the conduct of this war which has been in progress worldwide since the early 1990s. Also to his credit he did not follow the lead of former U.S. President George W. Bush to make the nonsensical declaration of a "war on terror" (one does not declare war on a tactic, but on an enemy), but we'll have to wait and see exactly who the French President identifies as the perpetrator of this "act of war" and how he responds to it, and if any other Western leaders follow his lead.
Meanwhile, if you see something that is not normal - report it to local law enforcement in order to potentially save the lives of family members, neighbors and fellow citizens. There is a war going on and we're all in the middle of the battlefield with the combatants.
Additional Data (Updated)
As of 4 PM EDT on 14 November 2015 the following information has become known:
The first group of 10,000 Muslim "refugees" the Obama Administration wanted to settle in the US during October in arrived in New Orleans, Louisiana on the 3rd of October. The overwhelming majority of these Muslim "refugees" are young men of military age, there is hardly a single woman or child among them. (see image below which is illustrative of the refugees flooding into Europe and the US). At a cost of $16,000 each these "refugees" will be distributed to 180 pre-selected American cities and towns in Louisiana and elsewhere in CONUS. The governors of nearly half of all US states, in the wake of the Paris assaults by Islamic State have balked on accepting any of them without thorough vetting through background checks.
"...some have argued against the U.S. accepting Syrian refugees, fearing terrorists might slip through the cracks. We turned to former New Orleans FBI chief and anti-terrorism expert Jim Bernazzani for insight on whether that's a legitimate concern. Before coming to New Orleans, Bernazzani worked to ramp up the nation's anti-terror strategies after 911."If I was in charge of ISIL, logistically I'd take advantage of this situation and put my people in, into the United States," Bernazzani said. "Now with that said, the FBI is on top of this big time with our Joint Terrorism Task Force and we have what's called a Terrorist Screening Center that these individuals will be run through."But make no mistake, not every refugee seeking admission to the U.S. would face such scrutiny."It's going to be the 18- to 45-year-old male for the most part," he said. "It's a percentage game. It's not fail-safe, but it's a percentage game."
Even without these new jihadists being settled among us, the FBI currently has more than 1,000 active anti-Islamic State investigations ongoing from sea to shining sea through local area Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) intelligence fusion centers. The are a reported 4,000 combat trained Islamic State terrorists embedded among the tens thousands flooding into Europe and the US. At least two of the Paris assault team were trained by Islamic State and maintained communication with their higher headquarters in Syria until the day of the attack according to a New York Times report of 15 November. According to a (must read) ARS Technica report of 16 November, those communications were encrypted thanks to the American traitor Edward Snowden.
In the online Islamic Social media, they not only claimed responsibility for last nights military assault on Paris, France, but also identified that they will soon launch similar attacks in the capital cities of the USA, Italy and the UK. Note this also. Following the earlier Charlie Hebdo massacre French President Hollande stood up a 7,000-man special operations team that was to canvas Islamic "no-go zones" (majority Muslim urban areas) around the country to locate and neutralize "radical Islamists" before they could strike again. Nice job, Francois, and good luck with your declaration of war against... who?
Finally, these clowns at the top of the leadership of the West think 'climate change' is the greatest threat we face. Let's see if they cancel the big conference scheduled to occur... wait for it.... in Paris, France from 30 November through 11 December.
10 September 2014: The answer to this post's question is yes, based upon polling data of American citizens conducted recently. We nearly all believe that IS terrorists are already here in the USA. Well, if you live in Houston, Texas it's not a polling data issue based upon an unsubstantiated belief, it is a fact.
Obama's big lie in his speech last night.
"ISIL is not Islamic."
"It [this "military action"] will not involve American combat troops fighting on foreign soil."
Everything I ever needed to know about Islam I learned on 9/11.
11 September 2014: In case no one has noticed, Obama's masterful and just announced "no boots on the ground" plan to join many nations into a anti-Islamic State warfighting coalition in Syria has taken flight just as his last threat of almost exactly two years ago to bomb Assad's forces took off like a lead balloon.
Islamic and NATO allies alike have spun on their heels and are at a full warp factor 10 gallop away from any military adventure bearing evidence of lame duck U.S. President Obama's fingerprints on it. The Sunni Muslim nations in particular want nothing to do with aligning their ground pounding military forces with kufr (infidel) Roman forces against the Sunni Islamic State because their Sunni populations would probably revolt instantaneously at such a prospect. On the other side, the Alawites and Shi'a would love nothing more than America and NATO allies joining with regional Sunni regimes to kill Sunni jihadists of the Islamic State and thereby ensuring an Iranian Shi'a Twelver hegemony from Afghanistan to the Mediterranean Sea.
The Sunni Muslims have their eschatological beliefs too, as we all should be well aware by now, and such a scheme as Obama and Kerry and their fellow liberal allies in Congress have concocted against the newly declared Islamic Caliphate would fall smack dab into the middle of a particularly serious one with a Mahdi-like and generous Caliph figure having emerged in the desert of Iraq who is very much benefiting the Sunnis there against their Shi'a oppressors.
The most ridiculous and inherently dangerous thing Obama wants to do is embed American special forces into the Shi'a dominated Iraqi Army. This is proof positive that Obama is an incompetent Commander-In-Chief and has learned nothing from the Green-on-Blue murders of NATO troops in Afghanistan, the most recent of which occurred on 5 August in the murder of an American commander's commander, someone I had the privilege of knowing personally albeit briefly, American Major General Harold Greene. I imagine Obama will be playing golf instead of attending their funerals in the future.
"I am not sure if Obama is using ISIL as some sort of code phrase (as some suggest) to include the desired absorption of Israel into an Islamic Khalifa, but I do know that it's not a phrase that Islamists use as it is distinctly Western, as in "Roman," terminology. Why would Islamists use the language of the kufr (western Roman infidels) to identify their state? They wouldn't and they don't.
In its common usage Levant referred to those regions east of Italy where the sun rose over the Eastern Mediterranean Sea Basin, a/k/a the Levantine Sea (between Turkey, Cyprus and the Egyptian coast). Also, the proper noun Levantine was used to refer to Europeans living in that region of the Middle East since the time of the Crusades.
The Levant as a geographic area includes the southern Turkish province of Hatay, Aram Syria to the Euphrates River, western Jordan, Lebanon, Israel, western Saudi Arabia, the Egyptian Sinai Peninsula and northeastern Egypt to the Nile River.
It would be far more correct to say that use of the word Levant refers specifically to the future geographic status of a greater Israel in fulfillment of the Lord's Covenant with Abraham found in Genesis 15:18-21.
"On the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying:
'To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the River Euphrates— the Kenites, the Kenezzites, the Kadmonites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Rephaim, the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.'”
