More Scaremongery: Inhofe Warns ISIS "Developing A Method To Blow Up A Major US City"

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Last night it was SecDef Chuck Hagel who warned ISIS was a bigger threat to America than 9/11 and primed the narrative for the next round of defense-spending (and this deficit-boosting, QE-enabling money printing). Today it is Senate Armed Services Committee member Jim Inhofe who told Fox that "we're in the most dangerous position we've ever been in as a nation." While that seems a little bit of stretch (oh and hasn't the Senator seen stocks?) he adds - rather ominously, "they're crazy out there and they're rapidly developing a method of blowing up a major U.S. city and people just can't believe that's happening." But then again, when have we ever needed to 'believe' anything anyway (especially without YouTube clips to prove it).

 

Senator Inhofe explains...

 

As Fox notes,

ISIS, they are really bad terrorists, they're so bad even Al Qaida is afraid of them,” Inhofe said reflecting on the recent beheading of American journalist James Foley. Beyond the beheading, Inhofe said the current terror organizations are not going to stay contained to the Middle East. “They're crazy out there and they're rapidly developing a method of blowing up a major U.S. city and people just can't believe that's happening.”

 

Inhofe blames policy decisions from the Obama administration and cuts in defense spending for putting the country in what he calls a dangerous situation.

 

He's [President Obama] going to have to come up with something that we're going to do because they're holding another hostage in place and the problem is, the President says all these things and he never does them,” Inhofe said.

 

Inhofe said he hopes after the mid-term elections there will be more Republicans in the Senate and more of a willingness for both parties to work on restoring cuts to defense spending.

*  *  *

So - to confirm - this is a massive threat that needs a solution, that is Obama's fault because he cut spending, but we need to cut spending more? Okeydokey then...

Thanks Jim, maybe if you had Bibi's bomb picture you could 'splain it to more people just how close they are to coloring in the rest of the bomb.

If a city blows up in the US, it is going to be the (shadow) government of the US that does it. Judging by what I see and hear around me, there will be plenty of cannon fodder lining up to appease the MIC when that happens.

“ISIS, they are really bad terrorists, they're so bad even Al Qaida is afraid of them,” Inhofe 

Ironic isn't it? US went in to remove Al-qaeda from Iraq (along with saddam for some reason) and ended up with ISIL, which if my lying eyes are not deceiving me has taken up all the arms the US left behind after removing the 'threat' of WMD. 

Unlike many zh’ers I don’t doubt ISIS is a serious threat, but the bigger picture these american hawks need to address is the fact that ISIS is quite obviously a product of insane american foreign policy. 

Many people called this when US first drummed up support for invading iraq. It’s about time those people were listened to more and proven fuck-ups listened to less. 

Someone needs to make a poster of saddams face "miss me yet?"

Excellent movie.  Everyone should see it.

And yes, ISIS is created by the same people that dig Egyptian symbols, i.e. the washington monument (obelisk), the eye of providence (eye of horus), and the pyramid on the back of the dollar bill.  It is no coincidence that the chosen name is ISIS.  Even the symbol for the dollar is supposedly derived from ISIS $.

That was 2 (I mean 3) large buildings plus the cruise missile that hit the Pentagon. And yes the desired shock effect was devastating. I was 45 mins away. Friends and family in the buildings. Look at the police state we live in now.

Imagine a city the size of Baltimore, Indianapolis, Charlotte, etc.. (reasonably sized but nothing compared to the megalopolis between Boston and DC) being totally destroyed by a low-medium yield nuke..? The desired shock effect would be achieved without question.

NYC, Boston and DC have already been false flagged. Whose next?

Philadelphia, Baltimore, Chicago, Charlottle, Indianapolis. The city has to have a major sports team to garner the neccessary 'Boston Strong' kind of propaganda.

With that said.. with high level globalist Senators like Jay Rockefeller retiring and deciding not to run for re-election and ostensibly leave DC.. It could very well be the target.

It takes a state to develop a nuclear weapon and even then it may take help from another 'friendly' state <wink>.  As we see with Iran, it is not a simple matter.  Can a random group of "terrorists" mount this effort alone?   Delivering the weapon to a target is a whole other problem.  Can just anybody sneak a large radioactive device thru the US border?  Can they move it around the US and conceal it without detection?

The answer to these questions, Senator Inhofe, is NO.

The esteemed Senator should be removed from office.

Sounds like you haven't kept up with the shifty security at US ports, and how nuclear devices don't need to be large, and how radioactivity can be shielded by lead.

If you really want to go after the ISIS, it originates in the mossad, CIA, and MI5. Seems you'd start the conflict in Israel. Anything else is futile. As we have just witnessed .

"The U.S. will pay at least six trillion dollars for the Iraq war alone.

It was reported that America was spending $720 million every day in Iraq."

Haaretz has recently reported that the “U.S. military aid to Israel exceeds $100 billion.”

Snowden Bombshell: ISIS Leader CIA/MI5 Asset, Trained By Israel

NSA Whistleblower: “THE ISIS LEADER ABU BAKR AL BAGHDADI WAS TRAINED BY THE ISRAELI MOSSAD

The former employee at US National Security Agency (NSA), Edward Snowden, has revealed that the British and American intelligence and the Mossad worked together to create the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

Snowden said intelligence services of three countries created a terrorist organisation that is able to attract all extremists of the world to one place, using a strategy called “the hornet’s nest”.

NSA documents refer to recent implementation of the hornet’s nest to protect the Zionist entity by creating religious and Islamic slogans.

According to documents released by Snowden, “The only solution for the protection of the Jewish state “is to create an enemy near its borders”.

Leaks revealed that ISIS leader and cleric Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi took intensive military training for a whole year in the hands of Mossad, besides courses in theology and the art of speech."

Not really.
Sure they got some militairy stuff from American depots but that stuff is made in America so in about 1 year from now, and without the spare parts, most of that stuff will be in the scrap metal bin.

Secondly, as far as I've seen, most of those Isis guys are morons from europe who can off in hope of a new life over there.
All they need is a good beating and it's over.

What you need to remember about muslims is that when they're in large groups they feel though but in small groups they are girly children.
And to be honest, a muslim doesn't scare me at all :)

And as history shows, those guys have everything against them and fear us. Sure they feel strong when confronted with seniors, children and woman but for the rest? A smack in the face is enough to stop them in their tracks.

Summertime trips to Israel are nothing new for American officials, but amid the fighting in Gaza, more and more of them are seizing on their annual sojourns or booking last-minute excursions to make a political statement. Representative Steve Israel, a Democrat from Long Island, just got back; Representative Peter T. King, a Republican from Long Island, will depart this month.

...

On Wednesday, The Boston Globe reported that Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts — considered by many the most serious threat to Hillary Rodham Clinton in a Democratic presidential primary — is planning to join a congressional trip to Israel after the fall midterm elections.

...

You sure about that there that she isn't controlled opposition. Why would the head of the banking committee need to visit Israel. What business should she have visiting them in the first place? What do you think she is going there to do a rain dance? What message does it really send.

Squaw ain't the answer here.

So here's how it's gonna go down IMHO (connecting the dots):

 

Some sort of WMD given to ISIS by the US through one of its MidEast partners, will make its way to a sacrificial US city via Mexico.  It will go off, martial law will be implemented, but it won't be called that, the forth-coming election will be post-poned, and the Constitution will be replaced with V2.0 - then all hell will break loose...

 

I pray this is not the case, but it explains a lot of what is happening currently & in recent years...

The following is the narration by Adam Curtis of  "The Power of Nightmares"

 In the past, politicians promised to create a better world. They had different ways of achieving this. But their power and authority came from the optimistic visions they offered to their people. Those dreams failed. And today, people have lost faith in ideologies. Increasingly, politicians are seen simply as managers of public life. But now, they have discovered a new role that restores their power and authority. Instead of delivering dreams, politicians now promise to protect us from nightmares. They say that they will rescue us from dreadful dangers that we cannot see and do not understand. And the greatest danger of all is international terrorism. A powerful and sinister network, with sleeper cells in countries across the world. A threat that needs to be fought by a war on terror. But much of this threat is a fantasy, which has been exaggerated and distorted by politicians. It's a dark illusion that has spread unquestioned through governments around the world, the security services, and the international media.

I have a slightly different cut on the same thing.

People actually need nightmares.

We are a weak prey animal (ask any tiger, ask any lion or wolf) and 99% of our evolutionary heritage was and remains geared toward avoiding being eaten. Without that single focus on surviving another harrowing day followed by dreadful dark night, our life has no meaning whatsoever.

A huge part of our vigilance today is simply recreating an environment of watchfulness, and gaining satisfaction from that. We're like those African meerkats of the Kalahari, where one animal is always on the look-out. Looks like he's enjoying himself, doesn't he? We are geared toward watchfulness as well, you don't even have to ask, we just do it. Then we scream and freakout at the least provocation -- know any other advanced animal does that? If you mentioned any of the herd animals you would be correct. Stand around stupid then jump and run, that's all we got, and we use it at the drop of a hat.

We live through terror because we live for terror. Watching for it. Anticipating. Every crack of a twig, every sound in the night. A passing shadow, a passing dreadful thought even. In our minds and no where else on earth, just in our own heads.

Anything at all. We just make shit up to feel like survivors. Another harrowing day of worry followed by a dreadful dark night of the soul.

Fuck that. I mean seriously, we just need to get over that whole thing. We escaped our predators completely 200 centuries ago. We are the top now. We command all creation. We are the most fearful thing ever walked, in any time, upon any land.

We can relax, for fuck's sake.

Anyone running around now saying there is a predator going to eat us in the night is a Neanderthal. Go get a room, fucktard. The rest of us have an advanced globe-encompassing civilization to manage here.

one of my favortie quotes. Unfortunatly, it works on most people though. I confess, 6 or 7 years ago, I'd have been screaming to bomb these people back to the stone age. Now I see all this and can't believe how shameless these people are, and how easily the populace is lead around by the nose with this shit. So much has happened in the past few years exposing the massive flaws in our foreign policy, yet people clamor for more of the same. If there is really a credible threat to US cities then why the fuck are the borders wide open? The only Americans these people are a threat to is those stationed in those countries, or those foolish enough to travel there and take pictures. Bring them all home, and swing by Europe/Korea/Japan and pick all the US forces up there on the way back.

"The point is, if any terrorism comes, it's from this government. And if there was an outside threat like a Bin Laden, who is a known CIA asset in the 80s running the Mujahadeen war ...

Call the White House and tell them 'We know the government is planning terrorism, we know OK city and WTC was terrorism, we know the JCS wanted to blow up airliners [Baltimore Sun], if you do it we are going to blame you, 'cause we know who's up to it.  Or if you let some terrorist group do, like the WTC, we know who to blame...'"

ha i don't fear black people, or most anyone else, for that matter. Im a large fellow, chances are they will bother someone else, pick an easier looking target(thats typaically how predators operate). I simply make the point that, even if you buy the govt line about 9/11, which you clearly do, that does not change the fact that cops have killed more people than terrorists since then. And far more people are stabbed, robbed, or killed by wannabe gangstas than hajjis with duffel bags. And I love how you never miss an opportunity to point out how long you have had an account here, as if that somehow scores you any cool guy points, or makes you any less of an idiot(it doesn't do either). If anything, its embarassing, as I would think that if you had been reading both the articles and the comments of some of the more informed on here for this long, you would have gotten over your irrational fear of the muslim boogeyman, and figured out why you are told to be so afraid.

You're such a hardcore ZH'r, of course I'll be back to remind you.  All your nonsense and keyboard machoism doesn't change the fact that a niqab and a duffel bag on a train is far more worrisome to the people that actually live here than black teenagers are.    

Tyler could post a piece about a tidal wave, and all the comments are immediately about Obama, Soros, or some other completely unrelated topic.  Look at your post, there was absolutely no mention of politics, but you need to make it about Obama, and me being brainwashed by the mainstream media (ie-not infowars).  You're parroting the same stupid talking points to get you upvotes because you're arguments can't stand on their own merit.  Someone who won't change his mind or change the subject is called a fanatic, so I'm more worried about people like you than muslims or black people. It's the educated idiots that cause the real problems.
