Despite the mixed messages coming from the Obama Administration, the international terrorists from ISIS have announced to the world not to worry of them possibly making it to the shores of America - they're already here. As reported by the right of center news portal Breitbart.com on Aug. 22, 2014, as well as ABC News on Aug. 14, 2014, ISIS has taken to social media to give the American people and government notice they're moving about unmolested at least in Chicago and Washington, DC.
Initially looked upon as mere chest puffing rhetoric, the al-Qaeda allied ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) jihadists have been making more than a few threats of launching attacks on the American heartland with the sanguine promise of "we will drown all of you in blood." In the terrorists recent doubling down on their threats, they sent via twitter two separate photos; one in front of the White House, the other at the entrance to Chicago's historic Old Republic Building.
American Commander in Chief Barack Obama has downplayed the threat posed by ISIS, famously referring to them as the "JV" (Junior Varsity) of international terrorism. While Obama paid ISIS rather short shrift, his Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel was quoted by the government centered news site The Hill as stating the Islamists aren't "just a terrorist group." "This is beyond anything that we've seen," Hagel exclaimed. Further sounding alarm bells, the SecDef added that the 10,000 strong "ISIL is as sophisticated and well-funded as any group that we have seen," using another acronym for the group.
Despite Hagel being a former United States Senator as well as having served a hitch in the US Army, the current Secretary of the Department of Defense missed that the United States forced the downfall of the former Soviet Union as well as being instrumental in the defeat of Nazi Germany, Imperial Japan and Fascist Italy during the Second World War.
Prior to WWII, the US Army was ranked 34th in the world. Right behind the Kingdom of Romania.
