Are there foreign sleeper cells here in the United States, waiting for their “GO orders”?
The following is a comment from Dennis here on the blog:
I firmly believe that Iran, in conjunction with it’s network of terrorist groups scattered around the globe, have been busy quietly infiltrating and organizing cells inside our borders.
I feel quite certain they are armed, equipped, and well trained, just waiting for the “go order”. A strike on Iran will most certainly be reciprocated by a series of domestic attacks here. If they are fully activated, I feel they will create a pretty big mess.
Wouldn’t affect me and mine directly (unless they get lost), but will affect population centers and infrastructure.
Will war, limited or all out, directly affect us at home? Yep, no doubt, our open borders have assured that. No doubt in my mind that well trained, equipped terrorists walk among us.
What’s your opinion?
Here’s my opinion:
According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection statistics, total Southwest Border apprehensions so far this year (stats through May, 2019) are 593,507. That’s more than half a million in 5 months.
Most are released into the country to await their hearings in immigration court. The courts are so backlogged that it takes months or years for cases to be decided. Reports indicate that most people never show up for court at all.
It is illogical to presume that there are NOT “armed, equipped, and well trained” individuals and groups who cross our borders. Essentially we have open borders. Why would any potential enemy NOT infiltrate into our country and ‘set up shop’?
Just look at how many drug dealers and gangs cross the border and ‘vanish’ into our country. You think a terrorist couldn’t do it?
If there are about 1 million illegal border crossings a year, what percentage might be ‘bad people’? It’s fairly well documented that about 3% of people in general are sociopaths. So of that group of 30,000 how many might be ‘really bad’? (just as an example to wrap your head around it)
Do you realize how few people it would actually take to wreak havoc?
What kind of chaos might there be if an organized terrorist assault were to be triggered by a “Go order” given by their controllers?
Reflect on the chaos and panic that ensues following a ‘lone wolf’ psycho shooting event that we see here from time to time. Can you even imagine the sheer terror and subsequent ‘lockdown’ and ‘meltdown’ if organized terrorists were to start “shooting up the place”?
There’s so much more that ‘they’ could do too. Or instead.
I have no proof that there are well armed and trained terrorists here in the United States waiting for Go orders. One might believe that U.S. government spy agencies would discover and catch them. Maybe they do get some of them (we’ll probably never know). But do you really think we’re clear of this threat – given our open border situation?
We tend to get complacent when things have gone smoothly for awhile. Don’t get trapped into normalcy bias. While I’m not suggesting that you worry, I’m saying to take a moment and imagine what would likely happen as a result of the scenario above. And then do whatever you feel is appropriate for preparedness as such.
