This past weekend, while you were attending church, watching the Masters or just enjoying the beautiful early Spring sunshine, ISIS was busy releasing an 11-minute video called “We Will Burn America.”
The title is self-explanatory: the video promises another 9/11 on U.S. soil and calls on ISIS supporters to rise up and murder U.S. citizens around the world.
Here are three ways in which ISIS–and the global jihadist movement–could potentially strike America and make their demonic dreams a reality:
1) “City Wolves”
Back in February, FBI Director James Comey made a stunning statement about ISIS supporters in the United States: “Those people exist in every state,” Comey said. “I have homegrown violent extremist investigations in every single state. Until a few weeks ago there was 49 states. Alaska had none which I couldn’t quite figure out.”
He added, “But Alaska has now joined the group so we have investigations of people in various stages of radicalizing in all 50 states.”
When the FBI Director says that ISIS boasts a network of supporters and sympathizers in every state of the union, it’s pretty clear that the barbarians are not just the gates: they’re inside them.
Some have already heeded the call. If ISIS supporters begin to carry out smaller scale, horrific attacks like this on a regular basis in American cities (certainly not implausible, given that even the FBI Director concedes that ISIS’s tentacles stretch into every U.S. state), creating a virtual guerilla war-type climate, the U.S. economy and psyche could be affected in profound ways.
