Could ISIS retaliate against the West?

Are you farking kidding me? We are numero uno on their hit list. If we let them run amok they are going to come for us. The only sensible course of action is to destroy them.

To be fair, you have to be a sub-genius to want to man handle the general public.

I'm surprised it took this long for the fear mongering to start

Obvious tag must be on vacation. Something will happen someday. Maybe not on a scale of 9/11, but the Muslim terrorists will try and try again.

BE AFRAID! BE AFRAID! BE AFRAID!

Or not. Y'know, either way.

I was going to go with the OBVIOUS, but picked SCARY instead because I am not sure who I was more scared of, the terrorists or the people protecting me from them.

Two choices:

1.  Double the recruiting budget for TSA Screeners to include paper tray bottoms on top of this:

2.  Or we can come to the realization that nobody can be 100% safe.

I prefer to be groped instead of blown-up, or crashed into a building, but your scary tag works too.

The thing is, even with all the plans and bans and things done to help keep everyone safe, it will not stop something from happening. And if it not ISIS now, it will be some other group later. So might as well live your life.

Long time since I've been on a plane. Are you still allowed to put vodka in water bottles and put it in your hand luggage?
 
2014-08-09 05:25:35 PM  
And as we know, ISIS has a perfect reputation for making credible threats.

Based on the past few years, we'll choose be afraid and pass feel good laws that wouldn't actually make us any safer.

No? What number are we then? Gotta at least be in the top 3.

The flare-up in Gaza guarantees an uptick in terrorist actions against the US.

How convenient that ISIS exists so we can decouple that reality from the discussion yet again.

An uptick in terrorist actions against the US? Has Hamas attacked the US before? I don't think so.

Seeing as how you can't carry *water* in a water bottle, I'm going to say no.

AFAIK they haven't formulated any specific hatred against the west or east, outside being understandable pissed when you bomb them.

That might change if they ever achieve #1 and #2.

Where are the brave, patriotic defenders of the Constitution when it comes to the TSA? Where are all the Tea Party sponsored bills to dissolve the department (as it's a direct breach of the illegal search and seizure amendment)?

I wonder if ISIS could overrun Iraq if Saddam Hussein was still in power?
Was Iraq the way it was because of Saddam Hussein, or was Hussein they way he was because of Iraq?

Just got back from a flight.
Good: You can now use everything except laptops during take-off and landing. Yay!
Bad: They confiscated my safety razor. I suppose it makes sense in a way but I've been carrying one for years. Apparently that's a no-no.

cig-mkr: I wonder if ISIS could overrun Iraq if Saddam Hussein was still in power?

If Saddam was still in power there wouldn't be an ISIS, because the group didn't form until 2003; and didn't consolidate into the form it is now until after the US left Iraq in 2011.

Saddam and Iraq made each other. I know synergy is a tough concept, but there you go.

Man our news is narcissistic. "They're killing Iraqis.... they must be targeting the United States!" Hell, when MH470 disappeared I remember a Fox News commenter (they have it on at work all the time) saying "Maybe some terrorists stole the plane to attack the US." Really people, some things have nothing to do with us.

The problem is that WE aren't killing them all. We're the good guys, we should be the ones doing the killing!
 
2014-08-09 10:48:20 PM  
We never change either it seems. We respond to violence with more violence. Our use of violence is in no way more noble or righteous than theirs. We are just keeping the cycle going.. 50,000 years of modern humans and we still act like apes..

Tea Partiers aren't affected by such things; they never travel.

Travel broadens the mind. They hate that.

[Deletes "fun." Substitutes "profitable. "]

War is always about profit or power. Even Helen of Troy was just a pretext.
