TheThreat of a Terror attack and its Psychological Impact

New-York-Times-Square-Night-Life-1920x1080-Wallpaper

Yesterday ISIS came out with a video warning of an impending attack in New York.  A few days earlier in Washington, D.C.  No one in Paris will ever again doubt the threat of an ISIS attack until the organization is destroyed.  Part of the threat on New York is specifically aimed at Times Square.  Although one expert says the specific warning might indicate that there actually are not any sleeper cells in New York since no place that has been attacked received such a specific warning, I’d still be pleasantly surprised if a camera shot of Times Square this Friday or Saturday night would show crowds as large as what we are accustomed to seeing.  Terror cell or not, the threat is out there, and that scares people.

It should go without saying that an actual attack is far worse than a threat.  The devastation caused by last weeks loss of life and innocent people injured in Paris is as bad as it gets.  That doesn’t mean ISIS doesn’t have other ways of attacking us. Displaying an evil cleverness unlike any previous terrorist organization, it would hardly be surprising if ISIS was actually cashing in their psychological chips and using the threats purely as a way of damaging the morale and economy of people in western countries, particularly the United States.

Americans by and large are a tough people.  I think there will still be crowds of people at Times Square in the coming weeks, but I also believe that some damage will most likely be done just from the threats put out there.  If the nations of the world show a strong resolve and display an indignant attitude towards the threats, then at least we’ve won one of the battles.  Of course that’s easy for me to say, since I may or may not be at Times Square this weekend.  I’ll let you know on Monday.

U.S. Fighter Jets Getting the Job done!

fighter-jets-American-Fighter-Jets-1For all the times myself and others criticize and call on our government to protect us, it is also necessary to recognize the times they do just that.  An unresponsive jet has been escorted by US Fighter Jets into Cuban airspace, at which time the windows of the plane were described as frosted.  The plane reportedly took off from Rochester, NY around 8:30 this morning and had a flight plan taking it to Naples, Florida.  No more details seem to be available at this time.

I want to take this opportunity to publicly state that between this incident and the one taking place within the past week when a plane was unresponsive near Washington, D.C., all signs indicate the military is prepared and keeping a close eye on potential threats.  We’ve heard the words and in the past week we’ve seen the actions.  Thank you to the military and the U.S. government for getting it done.  Please keep up the good work.  We all need you.

Free the State Department!

john-kerry-has-been-pushing-for-air-strikes-in-syriaTo quote a statement from Times of Israel,  “Washington is fuming over the negative Israeli response to the ceasefire proposal drafted with Qatar and Turkey.”  But after the report came out that the cease-fire offer was basically an offer for Hamas to stop fighting if Israel gives in to all their demands, Secretary of State John Kerry claims he never formally offered this particular cease-fire to Israel.  Kerry claiming he never officially proposed this cease-fire, one that might as well have been drafted by Hamas, is no different from celebrities like Rihanna or Dwight Howard Tweeting “Free Palestine” only to delete the tweet later.  Once you put it out there guys, we all know how you feel.
