When I saw the news (h/t Chris) I did some searching and sure enough there is a lot of discussion on the topic today for obvious reasons.
If you’ve been thinking about this possibility for years, you know very well that there are easy targets in rural America.
The story from Law Enforcement Today is entitled,
Former Secret Service, CIA agent issues warning: Prepare for Iran sleeper cells to strike rural America
IRAN TENSIONS COME TO A BOILING POINT: IS MAIN STREET READY?
In the wake of growing tensions in the Middle East, the United States has made a deliberate strike against the most prolific state sponsor of terrorism.
The killing of Iran’s Quds Force General, Qassem Soleimani, has sparked much debate across the aisle of whether or not this action is an act of war by President Trump.
Regardless of where you stand, the act of terrorism has increased for months before the US response. The question is, is America ready for attacks in the homeland?
As a country, we have been blinded by the possibility of a concentrated attack on US soil and many Americans, including our politicians, have forgotten the grim reality of 9/11 and not given our adversaries the respect they deserve.
We have allowed our guard to be lowered with debates of human rights for open borders, disregarding threats on social media and handcuffing the hands of our law enforcement officers to protect and serve.
Art Del Cueto, the Vice President of the National Border Patrol Union and President of the Arizona Border Patrol Union, touched on it this week:
“We need to take securing our nation’s borders very serious. With the huge rise in individuals claiming asylum, we truthfully don’t know enough about those individuals past, much less their true intentions. Drug cartels are the ones that control our southern borders and they do not care about human lives, it’s all about the money,” he said.
Del Cueto rightfully pointed out that the border opens us up to terrorists walking right into America.
(But, indeed, they are likely already here!)
Better safe than sorry, it’s important that you pay attention to your surroundings in the days, weeks and months ahead. And, report to local authorities anything that causes you concern as you go about your daily lives.
P.S. We are still bringing in Muslim refugees (in case you thought that had been stopped). And, in what can only be described as insane, we bring almost equal numbers of Shiites and Sunnis, I guess so they can continue their centuries-old wars right here on American soil. See my post today at RRW.
