Skip to comments.ISIS Leader to USA: ‘Soon We Will be in Direct Confrontation’
Posted on 06/14/2014 7:44:19 AM PDT by Rusty0604
Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), issued a rare audio message back on January 21 in which he flatly stated his groups intention to march on Baghdad and move into direct confrontation with the United States.
Our last message is to the Americans. Soon we will be in direct confrontation, and the sons of Islam have prepared for such a day,
When the House Foreign Affairs Committee held a hearing on February 5 on al Qaidas resurgence in Iraq, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Iran and Iraq Brett McGurk presented written testimony explaining the agenda of ISIS (also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIL), and discussed Baghdadis audio message to Americans.
We take such threats seriously and through cooperation with this committee and the Congress, we intend to help the Iraqis in their efforts to defeat ISIL over long term, McGurk told the committee in his spoken testimony.
House Intelligence Chairman Mike Rogers asked Brennan: Do you believe that that ungoverned space presents a real threat to the United States of America, via al Qaida operations, or the West?
I do, said Brennan.

Scotty Pelley said the Iraqis ran for their ... (wait for it) ... GUNS.
Gee, one needs those things to ward off criminals and terrorists?
Oh yeah, we did.
With numbnuts in the Whitehut, we’ll have to rely on the IDF to take care of these savages.
ISIS Spring! Thanks Hillary! I guess that it DOES depend on what the meaning of IS IS.
No you will not , you’ll have to catch Obama first
ISIS will probably wait till their butt-boy, obammy, leaves office, out of respect for all he has done to help them in their islamic conquest.
And they want to fight for Allah and a Muslim caliphate. We don’t want to be there. They will win, but we should make it extremely costly, so their adversaries in the Muslim world can defeat them when we leave.
Of course, our crucial mistake was in not bombing their part of the world to oblivion after their 9/11 attack on us. They would have understood that they had no chance against us. Our misplaced mercy was rewarded with nothing but misery, making us weaker and the jihadis stronger.
I don’t understand how intelligence was taken by surprise with the last few days of events if this was known back in January. Maybe they thought the guy was just talking like Obama does?
Obama is probably reserving rooms for them at Arizona military bases as we speak. Before you know it, they will be voting citizens whether they want to be or not.
Dude, that was good!
What really gets me is that we had this war won, Iran was about to go into revolt, Lybia was peaceful. The dominos were all falling in the correct direction for the end of major terrorism. El-Presidente stopped and reversed their fall.
All the guys we lost, now for nothing.
Obama will be reviewing his options over the upcoming days...
What part of the world should we have bombed after 9/11? All of the terrorists were Saudi, and BinLaden was a Saudi national.
Many of us have prepared, too.
But 'direct confrontation'? I doubt it. My guess is they'll send their women in suicide vests.
And the answer is, “FORE”.
Yep...should have nuked a couple of major cities and then said "If we are attacked again we will double the cities nuked and we will continue to do so until there is no trace of Islam left on the earth."
But that would have and will never happen. We have lost the pride of our power.
It’s simple....No one read the newspaper.
In these days of surreal politics and governments I personally find it hard to distinguish between satire and reality.
I know obama was photo shopped into the photo, but is the tweet real?
My guess it that capturing the US embassy in Baghdad is high on his priority list. Thousands of American there plus it is guarded by US Marines. I certainly hope all non essential personal are out of there and a plan is it place to evacuate quickly if need be. And I hope "the plan" includes high explosives.
They can teach their kids a little Spanish and they can come in easily through Mexico.
I think they're already in DC. :/
No repeat of Benghazi?
When will Americans get wise about progressive administrations.
I feel the same way. We lose a bunch of America’s finest and then the politicians get involved to make their sacrifices meaningless. It’s time for politicians to start fighting the wars. They should be the FIRST “boots on the ground”. Maybe then they’ll back off on their American military personnel killing, “rules of engagement”. IMHO, “rules” in war are the reason we have so many of them.
Clown Prince nobama will be reviewing his options over the next few days: 3-wood or 4 wood???????
Why would the Islamofascists confront America? They already control our federal government.
Obama released warlord head of ISIS army five years ago!
I have to wonder, how many cells are already here, just laying in wait.
the days of playing Cowboys and Goathumpers is fast approaching...
It’s clear the ISIL/ISIS movements are no surprise to the Obama admin. So then, the logical conclusion is Obama has no problem with their takeover of large parts of Iraq. Obviously no plans had been made for a response if their offensive was successful.
It’s simple really. As I and another fellow discussed on the night of 9/11:
Tell the Moslem world they have 48 hours to produce Osama Bin Laden. If they don’t, nuke Jakarta and Tripoli.
Give them another 48 hours: no Osama - nuke the next two major Moslem population centers closing in from the east and the west.
Repeat until we either have Osama, or we obliterate Mecca and Medina.
I still maintain that it would have ultimately been the kindest and most effective approach for all concerned, and, with a new demand (now that Osama’s dead), a demand to cease all hostilities and disarm, this would again be the kindest and most effective approach.
This worked beautifully the one time it was tried in history: on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Ultimately, despite the initial brutality of the attack, probably many millions of lives - American, and many times more Japanese lives - were spared.
This is what is required to end war. Total, brutal victory that reorients the mindset of a hostile people. Hearts and minds, nation building? - all simply crap, adolescent utopian nonsense. Completely destroy your enemy’s will to fight, or completely destroy your enemy. The rest is martial masturbation.
islam has no sons. that would mean islam would have somehow had sex with a woman, and a non-physical religion cannot have sex with a woman.
/snark take on muslims why Jesus isn’t the Son of God
Mother of all battles. Blah, blah, blah. Heard that before.
Well, Abu, I'll tellya what. Bring that convoy of matched, soft-skinned pickups down the road in my neighborhood, wontcha please? Just like it is now, with the black flags flying and those guys in nice, hi-vis black clown suits hanging off the sides. You could lead them in a rousing chorus of "Allahu Akbar!" while we're dialing in our scopes.
That is one sweet Apache 30mm gun run.
I’ve always wondered what effect turning Mecca into a sheet of glass would have on them. They would be reminded 5 times a day that Allahcould not protect his Holy City....
target rich environment
You can directly confront deez nuts homie.
Yes, I think we will
