The PJ Tatler

Al Qaeda reminds the United States and the world that just because one “jayvee” terrorist group has gone varsity, doesn’t mean another  one isn’t still gunning to top the table.

The online publication, called “Palestine-Betrayal of the Guilty Conscience Al-Malahem” and put out by the media arm of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, or AQAP, calls for Muslims around the world to follow “the recipe” provided to set off car bombs in crowded venues. It includes a timeline of “selected jihadi operations” that the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), which first flagged the slickly-produced latest edition of the terror publication, finds chilling.

“The timeline concludes with the date 201?’ and blank spaces and question marks for the photo and information of the next attack — implying that it is coming soon.” said MEMRI Executive Director Steve Stalinsky.

There is a suggested list of targets for lone-wolf, or individually executed, terror attacks, including New York’s Times Square, casinos and night clubs in Las Vegas, oil tankers and trains, the Georgia Military College, the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, and General Atomics defense contractor in San Diego.

The magazine also includes a list of targets in Britain, and a guide, “How to make a bomb in the kitchen of your mom.” That’s a guide to make a pressure cooker bomb similar to the ones that the Tsarnaev brothers used in Boston.

A second American is reported to have died fighting for ISIS in Syria. That’s the kind of publicity that even al Qaeda’s own magazine can’t buy these days.

I have some ides as on this terrorist problem.

maybe holder/obummer could set up a fed. funded gun shop along the mexican border and sell some more (untagged) u.s. manufactured assault weapons to the new issl terrorists as they cross our open border. as soon as the numbers of dead killed by those weapons gets high enough, he can use those stat's as a new excuse for another gun grab. we can call it fast & furious '14/'15. catchy title eh? bound to be a $$ maker. low overhead.

or how about a new shooting video game called 'spot and shoot the terrorist'? as they run/walk/swim/climb across our open border, you shoot the issl terrorists on the screen while piloting a drone. its tricky since its almost impossible to tell the diff between our usual unwelcome guests and a terrorist from abroad ready to spread death and destruction in our homeland. 3 wrong kills and you get sent to a mexican prison and chained to your cot until your 'gringo' trial. I'm still working out the details on this one. you get game credits by killing the most deadly ones. for instance, hitting a bio attacker en route gets more credits than just hitting a car bomber or our usual illegal alien rapist/murderer who gets released every day into the homeland by this administration.

both of these ideas are sure fire $$ makers, no doubt.

Anyone have a better idea than:

Western civilization can spend the next decade ( if we last that long )
Trying to contain and defeat the Jihadist forces of Islam.
We can keep struggling in the quest for the Democratization of Islamic states which we already did and failed at after investing billions in money and blood.
We can try to strengthen the so-called 'moderate branches of Islam, if there is one. They're either being cowed Into silence or winking and nodding to their Islamist brothers.
We can continue to use drones and special forces and police actions but so far That hasn't been effective. The violent Jihadists reproduce faster than we can neutralize them.
We can try making nice with the organizations of 'Soft-Jihadists' who advance Sharia and Jihad through usually peaceful and legal
Means (like the Muslim Brotherhood Obama's been backing for
The last six years) but that backfired.
The problem of violent Islamic Jihad is more widespread and virulent today than it was even at the height of its glory days when Hordes of Jihadists Advanced on Spain and other parts of Europe, something happening again even at this moment. For Over 1400 years of Jihadist violence, of murder and enslavement, forced conversions, and abuse Of women and children ...and yet still In this modern day and age Islam remains more a retro-sixth century ideology of bloody conquest than anything resembling a religion of peace and harmony.
The world can't wait for this backward cult of Muhammad to somehow 'reform' itself.
Not when nuclear and chemical weapons of Jihad very soon will be within the reach Of religious psychopaths and end-of-days fanatics who yearn for martyrdom.
When a beehive is burnt the surviving bees are disoriented
And dispersed. Certainly there are many angry bees initially but then they lose their ability to sting and just Disappear and scatter into the countryside and soon die.
There's a lesson in this. The hive is in Mecca. It's called the
Kaaba. Or we can continue getting stung for the rest of history!

I've always felt we should have bombed Mecca. Relative speaking, there are not too many people there (compared to a large city) so they couldn't complain about civilian deaths. Yet it would be extraordinarily effective because it would show them that their Allah does not favor them.

When the next 9/11 happens our ruling class will respond with some limp wrested gestures but it WILL NOT FIGHT BACK EFFECTIVELY. That will be the moment of truth. Will America, and the West with it, commit suicide, submit?...or will the great unwashed, that's us, revolt against the ruling class and save ourselves by FIGHTING BACK? That is THE question.
