Inside the Ring: New al Qaeda threat (Lone wolf attacks in the heartland)
The Washington Times ^ | Wednesday, January 30, 2013 | Bill Gertz

Posted on 01/30/2013 6:56:03 PM PST by TSgt

A jihadist website posted a new threat by al Qaeda this week that promises to conduct “shocking” attacks on the United States and the West.

The posting appeared on the Ansar al Mujahidin network Sunday and carried the headline, “Map of al Qaeda and its future strikes.”

The message, in Arabic, asks: “Where will the next strike by al Qaeda be?” A translation was obtained by Inside the Ring.

“The answer for it, in short: The coming strikes by al Qaeda, with God’s Might, will be in the heart of the land of nonbelief, America, and in France, Denmark, other countries in Europe, in the countries that helped and are helping France, and in other places that shall be named by al Qaeda at other times,” the threat states.

The attacks will be “strong, serious, alarming, earth-shattering, shocking and terrifying.”

Under a section of the post on the method of the attacks, the unidentified writer said the strikes would be “group and lone-wolf operations, in addition to the use of booby-trapped vehicles.”

Anyone hazard to guess if Al Qaeda has been watching America's response to the Sandy Hook school shootings? Disarm law abiding citizens but continue to leave our children defenseless. Easy soft targets in the heartland with maximum terror impact. Mosques should burn if they attempt such a thing and I'll bring the gasoline...

The First Moslem, with the Blessing of Congress,
has meticulously kept the borders open for al Qaeda,
while the DO”J” has armed them under Holder.

Americans are in peril like never before.

You can bet if they hit schools there will be MASSIVE backlash not just against Muslims but the government. You know damn well they won’t react in any beneficial way. We may yet get to see what post-9/11 would’ve been like if Al Gore was president.

I fear that too. Almost as much as I fear the aftermath.

We could capture a half dozen of the miscreants, find that they don’t speak English, converse amongst themselves in Arabic, and CNN would still blame bitter Bible clinging TEA Party members.

Congress would respond by outlawing the Bible.

If al-Qaeda harms a single American child, it will be the fault of Obama, the TSA, the DHS and the liberals in congress who push their damn diversity agenda.
Any attack on the USA by al-Qaeda will the event that brings down the Obama Administration. The Conservatives will no longer tolerate this stuff.

This was their MO for Fast and Furious.

Booby trapped vehicles.......my nightmare is school buses. In my area shortly after 911, I noticed that bus drivers left their buses unattended in the far end of a Kroger parking lot, maybe upwards of two dozen. They parked them there after school drop off until afternoon pickup very close together, rows and rows, many with doors open. It would have been so easy to put bombs on or under these buses, all set to go off at the same time while kids were on them. I had to call the school district multiple times until they reluctantly listened. They stopped doing it for a while but right back to the same procedure. So to hell with it.

Why would any terrorists waste their time on airplanes when they are practically impenetrable and there are easy soft targets like the one you describe?

The DHS, CIA and FBI are incompetent if they can’t figure this out.

If they hit a school Obama will declare martial law and the backlash against the government will have to be Civil War II.

This is why he’s making sure the military leadership has no qualms about ordering troops to fire on Americans. That is the next war he plans to wage. He’s got his bunker set up underground now, and he’s got his agencies well-armed. The border is wide open so operatives flown on direct unchecked flights from Iran to Venezuela can easily come wherever they want in the US to await the signal to attack, using whatever WMD’s they may have brought with them.

Those could be the attacks to trigger the martial law, or they could be to hinder patriots when CWII hits in full, or they could be used in conjunction with an Iranian EMP launched from Venezuela in order to complete the full communist-Islamist coup begun in 2008 with the Sept run on the bank.

As of right now our southern air defense to detect breaches of US airspace is spotty because the blimp force has not been maintained, and as of March 15th (?) they will not be in use any more. Drones have not provided the protection they were billed as providing, and provisions have not been made for drones to replace the blimps, according to a representative from Puerto Rico, who is concerned about the security lapse. That security lapse covers that altitude at which an EMP attack would occur, if I understand correctly. The very place and altitude needed for an Iranian EMP attack launched from Venezuela. And IIRC that is the altitude for which Iran has been testing its missile delivery systems.

So the stage is almost entirely set for a massive coup. Exactly how and exactly when is still open.

It would have to be more dramatic than 9/11/01. Most Americans just hit the snooze button and rolled over; within seven years, they elected a guy named "Hussein."

Amen, jag! Every one of us needs to become a sheepdog. Always carry, if you can.

I drive a special-needs school bus but there’s a little problem. It’s illegal to carry on school property.

Um, yeah ... so what?

It’s only illegal if you’re frisked. And why would they frisk a school bus driver?

I’ll take my chances.

Since Sandy Hook the after-school program keeps the fire doors to the educational wings locked. But they can’t do that during the school day. And I don’t know whether to laugh or cry when I see the sign that says that all visitors must report to the office. I guess that’ll stop a Muslim terrorist, all right. Just like the Gun-Free Zone sign.

The day of the Sandy Hook attack, some of the kids wanted to talk about it. I was talking with them and my boss came and said that the kids should hear about this from their parents. My daughter later said that the teachers talked about it with the kids and that was fine. My understanding was that there is not supposed to be a discussion of how safe schools really are, because it might scare the kids. Better for nobody to think about it and hope everything is fine.

I don’t know. I think this country is suicidal, to be truthful. And they’re not going to be talked out of it either.

No, liberals will say we need EVEN MORE gun control so the terrorists wouldn’t have any weapons. You know for sure if we had even more gun laws, the terrorists would get rid of their weapons. /s

I went to an assembly at a school recently. They had sent invitations for this assembly. They wanted everyone to sign in at the office and to get a sticker so that everyone knew you were ok. I was a little obnoxious about how stupid it was. The girl who was trying to control this was unfamiliar to me, and she was frantic trying to yell at parents coming through the front door while she was behind a counter in the office. She yelled for the school nurse to help her. There was a long line of adults with toddlers. I loudly asked how signing in for an assembly and wearing a sticker was gonna stop a crazy person from shooting up the place. The nurse just shook her head at me and said, “I know. But this is what they said we have to do.” When I had my official sticker, I proceeded down the hallway and noticed multiple people with no ID. I think they are playground monitors. But they were not wearing ID. I looked around during the assembly and observed several teachers who did not have visible ID. My children’s teachers were wearing theirs. The high schools are more vigilant about visitors. You have to sign in at the gates. But once you are in is another story. Those places are zoos.

I just think that’s what they would do, because they know that the public would get serious about security. It’s obvious (by the regime’s focus on arming government agencies and requiring military leadership to be willing to fire on Americans) that they are preparing for a martial law situation. And IIRC they’ve been carrying out martial law training for local police departments as well. (Maybe somebody can direct us to information on that). And history supports this too. The Reichstag Fire comes immediately to mind.

We all need to realize that Obama told the Egyptian ambassador in January of 2010 that he was and still is a Muslim who supports the Muslim agenda. This guy is self-admittedly on the same team as both Ahmadinejad and Morsi. He can order something from the US military and he can order something from his Islamist allies such as AQ or Ahmadinejad, and he can order something from his communist allies such as Chavez, Castro, China, or Putin. I call that “flexibility”. Lots of Reichstag Fires that can be used.

There was a report (though it was still being investigated because the reporter of it was Alex Jones, I think) that the regime had talked about plans to use a chemical attack in Syria in order to blame Assad and justify booting him. That’s the kind of “false flag” stuff we know this regime does. Fast and Furious is just one example of that. They do what they want to do, for their own purposes, blame somebody else for it, and then trample the Constitution in response. The Reichstag Fire. As predictable as can be.

I remember Beslan well. Most people on the street have never heard of it. Beslan cemented my negative views of muzzies. The 9/11 attack was one thing but attacking a School on it’s first day knowing that entire families would be there is beyond comprehension to any person with any kind of civility in them. Barbaric animals these muzzies were.

Be serious.

The MSM and the administration will blame the GOP and conservatives (notice that I make a distintion between the two) for being an obstruction to efficient government.

And the GOP will just slink back silently.

That would pretty much answer the question 'why do you need an "assault" weapon?'

I don't own an assault weapon.
Those were tightly restricted by the National Firearms Act of 1934.

I do own a Tyranny Response Rifle. aka a Homeland Defense Rifle.
