Al-Qaeda And ISIS May Join Forces To Fight U.S.
With Al-Qaeda and ISIS potentially working to form an alliance, Americans are concerned with that this will mean for civilian protection. “They’re rivals right now, but there are talks going on to see who is who,” said Robert O’Neill.
O’Neill is the man responsible for killing Osama Bin Laden. “They’re losing Mosul so they’re going to need to get back into the desert and hide out there,” he said. He believe the two groups may unite in Pakistan for protection.
Osama Bin Laden’s son has also threatened to attack America.
Difficult To Find And Fight Terrorist Groups
Some conservatives believe America should back off, seeing as trying to attack or eliminate all of these terrorism groups is nearly impossible. They essentially run back to the parent group, mix-and-match, or start over.
“You really have to pick the fight you want to fight, not spread yourself across four or five battlefields,” said one commentator on Fox News. The problem is that these groups do not exist in isolation so we must travel to fight.
Whether or not it should have happened, it did happen.
Bin Laden’s Son Wants Revenge For Father’s Death
The Independent reports:
“Osama bin Laden’s son has vowed revenge on the west for killing his father and is set to become the next leader of al-Qaeda, a former FBI agent has warned. Ali Soufan, who was the FBI’s lead investigator of al-Qaeda after the 9/11 terror attacks, examined documents seized from bin Laden’s Pakistan compound when he was killed by US Navy Seals in 2011.”
“I consider myself… to be forged in steel,” Hamza bin Laden, now thought to be around 28 wrote. “The path of jihad for the sake of God is what we live.”
