Al-Qaeda Divulges New Terror Target: American Trains

4610

While Democrats focus on fake Russia scandals and destroying Confederate monuments, America’s enemies are laying out plans to destroy the country. North Korea threats have dominated the headlines, along with the civil unrest that is permeating cities nationwide. But, as the U.S descends into social chaos, Al-Qaeda is not-so-quietly plotting their revenge.

In the forthcoming issue of their magazine, Inspire, the terrorist organization reveals their new target-American trains.

Issue No. 17 is headlined, “Train Derail Operations,” and will spell out ways to create railway disasters. Rail transportation is far less secure than air travel, which likely makes it a seemingly viable target.

The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) put out a report on Friday saying Al Qaeda has promoted the Inspire articles with a trailer appearing on Telegram app channels operated by its supporters. “The trailer highlights that derailments are simple to design using easily available materials, that such a planned attack can be hard to detect, and that the outcome can substantially damage America’s transportation sector,” MEMRI said.

There are over 100,000 miles of rail tracks throughout the U.S. However, Al-Qaeda has expressed interest in one specific target-subways. According to the Washington Times, the video teaser for the article showed subway cars traveling through urban tunnels. Using information from the U.S. Government Accountability Office, the video also alludes to how easy it would be to sabotage the subway system.

The trailer concludes with a picture of some type of explosive devices being clamped onto a track to cause a derailment. “Simple to design,” the promo said in English, mentioning “America” several times. “Made from readily available materials. Hard to be detached. Cause great destruction to the Western economy and transportation sector.”

Hopefully, they’ll wait to try out their plans until the left is finished with their other priorities, right?
