Over the past couple of years, Islamic terrorist attacks seems to have escalated, especially in Europe. There have been attacks in France, Belgium, Germany and England. They have used guns, knives, trucks, vans, cars and almost anything they can get their hands on.
US intelligence sources say that they have quietly prevented dozens of planned attacks here on American soil, but most people believe it’s only a matter of time before it does happen.
According to some intelligence sources, these other terrorist attacks have only been diversions to keep militants busy and to allow for the planning of another major attack on the same scale as 9/11. Sources believe the attack could involve taking down one or more airline, but they are not sure when or where it is going to happen, only that the threat is to be taken seriously.
While the United States has been the victim of several smaller-scale terror attacks over the course of the last 2 decades, nothing will ever compare to the horror we faced on September 11th, 2001.
Or will it?
Radical Islamic terrorism has taken a backseat to violence of the domestic variety in the United States over the course of the last 16 years. Lone wolf-type attacks have dominated the national security picture throughout the U.S., and the safeguards put into place after 9/11 have certainly deterred more than a few would-be jihadists from carrying out their dastardly plans. Such has not been the case in Europe, as France, England, Germany, and others have all been inundated with large scale, coordinated attacks involving vehicles and explosives over the course of the last year.
Is there a return to the bombastic tactics of the previous generation of terrorists on the horizon for America? Some experts believe so...
With the international threat level remaining so high, one has to wonder what the real motive is for liberals who continue to try to block President Donald Trump’s efforts to increase our national security, properly screen all immigrants and refugees and secure the border? It’s as if Democrats are inviting an attack to come to our nation. They are putting all of us at risk because they want more voters.
