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.

They are probably going to disguise thamselves as blacks and then start throwing insults and shit at the local cops.

That should just about do it..

Does ISIS have WMD?  Mobile rocket launchers, able to reach Israel?  Disguised as school buses and mobile cafeterias?

“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 $.

Major false flag heading our way soon, courtesy of the money creators....

I don't know about that.  No one would have guessed they would have destroyed Trade Centers in Manhattan, but they did.  Maximum shock effect.

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.

Actually it will probably be Austin.   Strikes a blow against possible Texas secession.  Second tier city.  Makes the inhabitants in Texas that lean left (damn them) clamor for more federal control and government.

That's a tough one... Chicago? (but make sure the Blackhawks are away), Detroit? um... LA? NYC? DC? DC might be good... so long as Obama were home to watch and not out golfing in some other town... this is hard, I can't decide. We should really start at the root of the problem, which is: whichever city the most Obama supporters have infested.

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.

Si se puede!

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.

Not to mention the black hats at the CIA are not above detonating a warhead on the beltway outside Baltimore or Norfolk or Charleston.. Isn't Miss Lindsay Graham on the same armed services committee..? Remember this..

We never did find out where they went.. I wonder what the Company keeps telling these bought off warhawks to have them continually shoot off their mouths about nukes going off in major cities. Lindsay Graham, Obama, Cheney and now Inhofe..

"how nuclear devices don't need to be large"

The ability to miniaturize nuclear weapons beyond the ability of most nuclear states.  So the answer is still 'NO'.
