Red Alert! Threat Level 1000! You know IS cuts off heads on Youtube, crucifies Christians and eats the hearts of Syrian soldiers on camera-but wait! There’s somebody even WORSE-Khorasan.
Khorasan? Sounds like a brand of carpet. Ironically, there is a fragile connection with carpets, specifically Persian rugs which once made up a significant part of the Silk Road Trade…
For Khorasan refers to a place, a rather ill-defined place, sort of spanning present-day Iran and Afghanistan. Khorasan was the name of one of three political zones under the Caliphs back around 700 AD; the other two zones were Arabic Iraq and Persian Iraq.
From the Memoirs of Babur: “The people of Hindustān (India) call every country beyond their own Khorasān, in the same manner as the Arabs term all except Arabia, Ajem. On the road between Hindustān and Khorasān, there are two great marts: the one Kābul, the other Kandahār.”
So we’ve got a Caliphate, and a connection to Afghanistan and Iran, according to Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff Dempsey. And it gets worse!
The Khorasan Group, the Al-Qaeda-linked cell that just landed on the US intelligence radar last month, allegedly has Americans in its ranks fighting in the Middle East whom the FBI cannot prevent from re-entering the country. FBI Chief James Comey said, “Khorasan was working and you know, may still be working on an effort to attack the United States or our allies, and looking to do it very, very soon.,” interview with 60 Minutes, a CBS news program.
There are AMERICANS in Khorasan!! and we can’t prevent them coming back to the US unless we have power to take away their passports!!
(Because we all know it is impossible to get fake passports)
(And why do we spend billions and give up our liberties if you are so pathetically ineffective?)…
and “they’re serious people, bent on destruction. And so we have to act as if it’s coming tomorrow.”
US Department of Defense statement: “They have established a safe haven in Syria to develop external attacks, construct and test improvised explosive devices and recruit Westerners to conduct operations.”
Does any of this have a familiar ring? A country is providing safe haven for al-Quaeda terrorists? These terrorists are planning imminent attacks on the homeland? Therefore we need to need to bomb their haven? And clamp down on civil liberties?
S.O.S.=Same Old Shite. It worked to get us into wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, let’s try it again. Americans have short memories, right? Please note: Where is Khorasan’s safe haven that needs to be bombed? In Syria! Conveniently, right where the US has been wanting to bomb for several years.
The Syrian false flag gas attack fell through. Let’s try the “al-Qaueda, safe haven, imminent attack” schtick. Scared yet?
It’s the same old song, but with a different beat since you been gone…
