Islamic State group calls for attacking civilians

Source: AP-EXCITE

BEIRUT (AP) — The spokesman of the Islamic State militant group says his fighters are ready to face a U.S.-led military coalition and is calling on Muslims worldwide to kill civilians of nations that join the fight.

Islamic State group spokesman Abu Mohammed al-Adnani says President Barack Obama's coalition will not be able to defeat the jihadis.

Obama is currently working to form a global coalition to confront the Islamic State group, which controls large parts of Syria and Iraq.

Al-Adnani called on people in an audio released late Sunday to prevent their sons from joining rebels that the U.S. plans to train to fight the Islamic State group. He says jihadis will make them "dig their graves with their own hands and have their heads cut off."

While this is just talk, it is frightening in the long run. No matter what views we hold about the "Islamic State" group who knows what it is capable of?...Especially if our side kills some of its leaders, who knows what they will do in .."revenge" What the hell are we getting into?????

Do we just let them run wild murdering men, women and children?
Even Jimmy Carter says we need to destroy ISIS, and when Carter says this, it's pretty serious.

Nothing says "Real Caliphate" more than attacks from infidels all across the globe.

My plan:

Pull out all the western military, and wall off the entire troubled region. All of it.

Anyone is free to go into the area, but no-one gets out once the wall is created.

Let people behind the wall deal with ISIS and other Islamo fascists as they see fit.

If they solve their issues some years down the road, and want to rebuild relations with us, then fine, let's talk about it.

If they can't resolve their issues and just want to kill one another, that's okay too.

Just don't try to get over or under the wall, or we'll kill you.

Thing is, we don't really need the people or resources in that area. With a bit of tooling, we can easily and beneficially do without their oil, which they can just enjoy any way they wish.

I think some variant of "the wall" is the only approach that keeps us reasonably safe, and where we can remain (somewhat) open societies, and prevail long-term.

They must feel the noose tightening. I'd think they would have waited a bit longer before the kill all infidels worldwide thing.

The Kool-aid is strong with these idiots. I see a lot more useless pain, destruction, and suicides and in the future from them in their pursuit of their "Truth".

I've read the Koran; true, the Richard Burton translated version, and a while back - but from everything I've read, the whole Wahabbist sect and most of the "fundamentalists" are participating in blasphemy in a massive scale. What little snippets they can pull to justify their power-plays and blood-letting is far outweighed by "Let Allah be the judge".
Just as most of the "fundamentalist" Christians and Jews, they cherry-pick their holy books to justify all sorts of ignorance and psychopathic actions based on fear, greed, hubris, or laziness.

My rule of thumb when dealing with these people - Why can't they let their God be the judge and just do the good works expected of them? Why do they presume to set themselves up as "God's right-hand man" and declare who is a heretic or is going to hell when they can't walk on deep water without any help or do any miracles without resorting to technology or trickery? Why should we believe them when they're resorting to lies to prop them, their small universe and ideology up?
They might just find themselves in a much hotter place than they thought when it's their turn to stand before the throne of a Creator of All and justify their actions - unless they are just cynically greedy con-men and women trolling for foot-soldiers to set up their own little private kingdoms to make money and feel important in...
I don't presume to judge them, just pointing out that Milton's Fallen Angel, the personification of the devil, claimed " Tis better to Rule in Hell than Serve in Heaven..."

The IS leadership would much rather Rule a Hell of their own making - just like Pat Robertson and his ilk.

It's always good to rationalize what you've already done.
