Paint ball: training for urban combat
"paintball jihad" cases are good examples of activities by Muslim men in the U.S. While the same activities by others might not raise an eyebrow, if its Muslims there is some suspicion. Is this a form of legal terrorist training, practicing urban combat?
But if they are also involved in purchasing illegal automatic weapons there can be little doubt.
Douglas J. Hagmann says: "Since it has become more difficult for them to leave the country or train with actual weapons, they will get together and train using paintball guns. They will engage in paramilitary-style training right under our noses, and lie about it to our faces. They are protected, in some cases, by the religious Imams, some who even encourage or schedule such outings.
On Tuesday, May 2, 2007, a federal indictment was unsealed in the U.S. federal court in St. Louis naming eight Islamic men as defendants in a case involving the buying, selling or hiding of automatic weapons, an anti-personnel mine and other explosives.
In the case of ABUELAWI and the other seven defendants, the men met at gas stations located in north St. Louis between August 2006 and January 2007 to buy or transfer automatic weapons and explosives. In the original documents charging Abuelawi, Sumad is quoted in a meeting with ABUELAWI and a government informer as saying that "he wants to buy as many explosives as possible because, 'we're going to war.
The case originated with the arrest of Mousa M. ABUELAWI, 22, of Creve Coeur, MO on December 29, 2006. He was charged with three counts of illegal possession or distribution of a machine gun and conspiracy to violate machine gun statutes. A superseding indictment unsealed yesterday, charges ABUELAWI and seven others with machine gun charges and charges of conspiracy, lying to the FBI and other firearms violations. The other seven defendants identified in the indictment are identified as: Thaer Abde SUMAD, 23, of Florissant, MO, Abdikarin WARSAME, 28, Charley M. HUNT Jr., 45, Darnell T. THORNTON, 25, and Hussein Ali NURE, 29, all from Jennings, MO, Mohamed JUDEH, 20, of Maryland Heights and Otha L. BAKER, 20, of St. Louis. If found guilty of the charges, the men face 5-10 years in prison."
This raises some serious questions. We must realize it is possible to train insurgents right here int he USA and the black market can supply automatic weapons.
Now think of the recent University shooting, of the Washington DC snipers.
And our pourris Canadian and Mexican borders.
Mix this together and we can see the potential danger.
WE NEED GUN CONTROL LAWS....
If gun laws worked we would have BOMB control laws.
The bad guys by definition DON'T follow laws.
A law doesn't stop crime or criminals....
look in the prisons.
When you think gun Control laws, think bomb control laws.
That should be the headset.
Now just watch someone will pass a law against
suicide bomb belts in town!!!
Add to this the Internet terrorist web sites and the training manuals and how they are used for command and control,
recruitment and propaganda.
And the willingness to perform suicide bombings and soon this starts looking like a more serious threat.
There used to be a false sense of security based on familiarity.
If they live here long enough they then they will get to know us and won't attack.
Some of the 911 members had lived in USA for 2 years.
They used the airline schools in the USA to train for 911, can they use paintball for training also?
The airline schools were legal, some of them even got student loans, and the paintball is also legal.
I think it would be in bad form for a group of Muslims to go practice paint ball, but it is not illegal.
We need to be vigilant and be protective of every ones rights.
Or we have lost the war by default.
When they played, I wonder if they wore those black outfits with the mask?
Of course they wore masks, it was paintball.
The USA has been making progress, taking out al Qaeda leaders.
They are quickly replaced, but the replacement, same as civilian corporate life is usually second best to the first choice, and interrupts the smooth operation of any organization.
And there is the catch up/retraining of the the new executive.
And the speed in which they replace these guys means they don't have a huge field of candidates to choose from. Loosing cadre means a less qualified, less experienced al Qaeda.
In some cases they are down to the third teir of leaders.
Look around in your business, look at the number 3 guy, imagine him running things, and you have an idea of al Qadeas troubles, and the progress USA is making.
Eventually the USA is going home.
the Sunni and Shia can fight al Qaeda alone,
or fight with USA's attack
Eventually the USA is going home.
USA can fight al Qeada all over the world,
AQ sprang from the loins of Islam.
Islam is responsible to bring them to hag.
Only Islam can stop AQ but they don't have to fight MUNAAFIQEEN alone.
