So, Fox News would like you all to be very afraid of ISIS attacking you and your family on American soil.
After 45 minutes of talking to Fox News contributors about the fight against ISIS — and how President Barack Obama was bungling the effort — Pirro brought on former Navy SEAL Larry Yatch for advice on how Americans could “protect themselves against terrorist attacks on our own soil.”
This is not only amazing for the fact that it's utter nonsense, but also that Fox is actually ADVOCATING bug out bags and conspiracy minded preparation.
Isn't that nifty?
And the viewers?
“I know my family takes the threat of ISIS seriously, we are locked and loaded,” a viewer name Angie wrote.
“Our shores and borders have already been penetrated,” Ray wrote in. “Every one of us has to be vigilant in our neighborhood, and on our jobs.”
“If the Obama administration won’t do it, we Americans must band together to protect ourselves from the terrorism here on our soil,” Ann told Pirro.
“I am locked and loaded, let them in if they can get past my guns,” a viewer named Wendy said.
Felicia said she was preparing with a three month supply of food storage, 1,000 rounds of ammunition, and she was living “as normally as I can.”
That last one is just...priceless.

The question is who stands to gain from these fears or from the terror acts?

One could argue that the Imperialist Military Ideology carried on by Western and European interests over the last 50 years are what caused those events.
You know the old saying about cause and effect?
Who has exported that snip to everyone else because they can't, or just don't want to come out of the dark ages.
Since what is going on in the ME has been going on long before this country was ever created.
THAT I do not argue with, but much like Christianity was relatively extremist, not so long ago, I think Islam will follow that trend as well and be much more moderate in 20 to 50 years than we generally expect.
