Next week is the 13th anniversary of September 11, 2001. I, for one, am worried.
I hope I'm wrong, but I think we are going to get hit by Islamic terrorists as they celebrate their domination over the diminished United States and the worst president in our history. In the second video of the beheading of a US journalist, Steven Sotloff, the Islamo-butcher directly addresses "Obama." He knows a weak horse when he sees one.
And what does the president do? In a bored voice, he mentions an "international community" to help render ISIS a "manageable problem," refers to the beheadings of James Foley and Steven Sotloff as a "terrible crime," and talks about "justice" for the murderers. It sounds like he's referring to the vying gangs in West Side Story rather than the brutal terrorists intent on destruction of the USA.
Although it is the primary requirement of his job, it's clear that President Obama is not going to defend our country. He wants "international" participation. So we Americans are on our own, and we should take the threat of Islamic terrorism in our homeland very seriously and do whatever we can in our limited power.
I'm not the only American who is concerned, as you can read here. If you live in any proximity to the US/Mexican border, be prepared. As is well known, our southern border is wide open, and we have no idea who is already here. It's perfectly plausible that uncounted numbers of terrorists are already comfortably ensconced in our towns and cities, awaiting their orders. We know the Islamic terrorists like anniversaries, so be ready for an attack on 9/11.
I'm not being an alarmist, just a pragmatist. I'm stocking up. Anyone living within 100 miles of the Mexican* border should have enough water, medical supplies, food, and dry goods at home to sustain your family and pets for a few weeks (Terrorist emergency preparedness list linked here). If nothing happens next week, fine. You won't have to shop as heavily for a week or so.
But if an Islamic terrorist attack does happen, you will be ready to withstand the aftermath as best you can--until the executive branch of government figures out that we're at war.
*UPDATE: I think it would be wise to include the Canadian border areas for those precautions, also. In fact, it wouldn't hurt to be prepared for a terrorist attack anywhere in the USA.
