FBI: Afghan civilian killings could spark attacks in U.S.
CNN ^ | March 15, 2012 | Carol Cratty

Posted on 03/16/2012 10:05:36 AM PDT by carriage_hill

Washington (CNN) -- The alleged murder of 16 Afghan civilians by a U.S. soldier could spur retaliatory violence in the United States, a law enforcement advisory by the FBI and Department of Homeland Security warned.

The intelligence bulletin, which was issued Wednesday to state and local law enforcement partners, says "there is currently no specific, credible threat information" that extremists might strike targets in the United States.

However, the document, which was obtained by CNN, notes the March 11 killings of the Afghans is the latest in a series of events in Afghanistan that could cause anger and possibly lead to violent action.

"The FBI and DHS are concerned that this event could contribute to the radicalization or mobilization of homegrown violent extremists in the Homeland, particularly against U.S.-based military targets," the bulletin said.

I guess they’ll be keeping an eye on TEA partiers and Christian pro-lifers then.

You could pick your nose and incite some islamic savage into an American-killing spree.

They are taught by their religion to kill infidels. Any other "trigger" is incidental and irrelevant.

There is a mosque located cattycorner across the street where I live. I have gotten hostile looks, like when I was in the reserves and returning from weekend drill in uniform.

Retired now. The muzzies know however that in South Carolina you don’t need CCW to pack heat in your glovebox. And I do.

Think about it, this was their next step. Get out of Muslim lands and they’re OK with us “infidels”!? No way Jose. They’ll follow us here or activate their sleepers already in place.

It’s war, folks. Fourteen centuries worth now delivered to your front door.

We all knew this’d be coming here and that we couldn’t keep it over there, forever. Watch for “soft targets” to get hit, before TSHTF.

Recruiting station, Ft Hood etc etc etc... just a “testing of the waters”.

Hospitals, VAs, nursing homes, kindegartens, grade schools, colleges, offices...

Like they wouldn’t already be trying this if they could? Come on! This is a CNN story from a CNN ideologue for cripes sake. This is just more reason to instil more power with the TSA, the FBI, the DHS, the ATF et al.

Nearly every abridgement of constitutional rights begins with some ooga-booga horrific act (Reagan Assassination Attempt - that Democrat Representative’s Attempted killing- I refuse to say her name, etc....). Then comes absolutely stretched interpretations of news events, then comes DHS’s admonitions to LEOs everywhere about redneck conservative patriots being terrorists. I just wish there were a “white man’s equivalent” to “n-word, please!”

It won’t be the “homegrown Americans”, but more like the radicalized imports, sleepers who’ve snuck across (your links), left-wing wackos, America-hating muzzies... the list is unsettling, to think they’re already here and ready to go upon command.

I know, I know; that was my first thought. But it *could* happen, again. Remember the Little Rock recruiting station and Ft Hood murders?

Are we at war, or aren’t we at war? I just read about one of the recipients of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, Dr. Tom Little, who was savagely murdered along with 9 other aid workers in Afghanistan in 2010. These people worked in optometry, helping the Afghanistan public with free eye operations and medical aid. The reason for their deaths (at point blank) was that they were Christians.

So with our still being at war with these murderers, why not level the playing field and kill some of their civilians? I know...two wrongs doesn’t make a right. The Afghanistan government never prosecuted any of the Taliban responsible for Dr Little and his assistants’ deaths. Why should the US be in any war if we can’t kill people? The Taliban still use children as suicide bombers in the name of allah. That means children have to die. Kill them before they kill us.

I’m glad that the soldier who killed the Afghanistan civilians at least somewhat leveled the playing field. He’s a soldier in combat. He is at war. Bring them all home if you don’t want any of our enemies killed...otherwise kill them all.

You’re both probably/surely right, but it never hurts to be *situationally-aware*, though my guess is that everyone here already is just that. Not trying to yell, “wolf”... just worth reading after Little Rock and Ft Hood.

“...two wrongs doesn’t make a right.”

In math, 2 negatives = a positive. In war, wouldn’t that apply? Just asking...

I wish I hadn’t put that line in my comment. Your point is well taken. The 16 Afghanistan civilians are positively dead,
as are our 10 Western civilians.

I gave this serious thought from the beginning of this incident.

My worry is that we have no so called leaders who are willing to save our country. A fat ass brass in the Pentagon has sided with the cheeky Kenyan bastard. How many have done the same? I forget his name, but this fat ass brass wants the U.N. to decide war decisions for the U.S.

It is going to be all white flags waving.

Are you folks ready for the white flags?

Yeah right, and if the sun comes up in the West in the morning, that could spark attacks in the U.S. Put whatever cause you like in front of the phrase “could spark attacks in the U.S.” and you’d pretty much be right...

His name is Panetta. I saw him say that on YouTube. It made me sick. When muslim terrorists hit our streets, I’ll be ready to fight back. If the government and police won’t restore peace to our streets, we the people will. When people can’t venture out to buy groceries without being shot at, payback will quickly follow.

It is Chief of Staffs General Martin Dempsey.

Certainly his civilian boss is a fat ass, but Dempsey is a fat brass ass.

As a couple of previous posters have bluntly said, it may be just another step, of many, by the gov’t to target us, and curtail our freedoms. I don’t know for sure, but my guard’s now increased 50% from the warning. I still remember Little Rock and Ft Hood, plus other instances gone largely unreported by the LSM.

We already CHOOSE to kill 1,000,000 of our future citizens every year. I doubt that a few more older ones would matter that much more.

Nidal Malik Hasan, the Fort Hood mass murderer was homegrown here in the U.S.A. You can’t take the jihad out of the muzzie, it’s in their DNA.

OTOH, if finally every “infidel” American comes to regard every recognizable muzzie in America as a jihadi waiting for the right moment to strike, or as a jihad enabler, the islamic brethren might not find their murderous mission to be all that easy.

Simple litmus test: say just three words, “Jesus is Lord!” and gauge the muzzie’s reaction.

You received hostile looks because you were traspassing on their property.

Remember that the government is giving America away to the members of the ROP.

“You received hostile looks because you were trespassing on their property. Remember that the government is giving America away to the members of the ROP.”

Well, now, the muzzies don’t need the U.S. government to claim ownership of not only America but the entire earth as well. It’s right there in the Koran that Islam must dominate the world and muzzies will inherit all that’s in it.

And here’s a chilling note that is probably more widespread than any of us “infidels” even realize: news out of Muslim dominated Central Asia that a convert to Christianity had his home invaded by the local imam backed up by the local police who confiscated all his valuables and announced,

“Since you’re an apostate, everything you have now belongs to the Muslims!”

Islam is a tide of pillage, rape, and tyranny that is always coming in.

Only because there is noone in the liberal West with the courage to stop them.

Observe and notice how none of the congresscritters dares to mention the islamic threat in any of their political speeches for fear of losing votes.

Only Newt and congressman King of NY have made half-ass comments on this subject. And I mean HALF-ASS!!

“Only because there is none in the liberal West with the courage to stop them. Observe and notice how none of the congresscritters dares to mention the islamic threat in any of their political speeches for fear of losing votes.”

Or their heads. Maybe it’s because I enjoy the luxury of living in South Carolina where the castle doctrine and issue upon demand CCW are in full effect (and I don’t have CCW because I do not yet have the need, a weapon in my truck’s glovebox is a basic right in this state) that I feel I can go about around here knowing that as long as I maintain situational awareness I have got the advantage if some ROPer decides to jump me.

And BTW, they’re easy to spot. The robes, kufi caps, shovelcut beards, wraparound sunglasses and scuttling manner of walking identify those whose religion commands them to hate their surroundings. The females among them are known as `walking tents’.

Anyway, if six million Jews in Israel can manage to thrive in the midst of a hostile Middle East consisting of three hundred million screaming Muslims, then I think we `kaffirs’ in America can do equally well.

Now, consider this carefully: it’s now emerging that in all of the treachery murders of NATO soldiers & our Marines in Afghanistan, the victim was shot from behind. How’s THAT for `jihadi bravery’?

Obviously the `fearless jihadis’ fear getting popped by their intended victims. No “ALLAHU AKBAR!”, no nothing, just a bunch of worthless you-know-whats committing cowardly murder.

So it’s really not that dangerous in America to be publically critical of the ROP.

Comments?

I wonder if they are really bothered by the murders enough to retaliate.

We saw riots about the accidental burning of a couple Korans, but no riots or protests about the murders (unless I am wrong.)

Seems like their culture demands death for many offenses. Killing people is a part of everyday life for these dweebs.

It is acceptable for father’s to kill children or wives who dishonor the family. No prosecutions. It is blood justice.

I wonder if the mindset of these people could be: OK, we killed six soldiers for the Koran desecration and the American’s retaliated with the killing of the villagers. We’ve even now.”

Desecrating the Koran or insulting the Prophet (peace be upon him) is what really gets them ticked off.
