Drone warfare has revolutionized the military. Middle Eastern terrorists are being pulverized by soldiers nestled safely in America. Unfortunately, Islamic militants have adopted the same technology. Security experts believe that terrorists are trying to figure out how to use a drone to attack American soil.
Terrorists aren’t giving up. Thousands, perhaps millions, of Muslim extremists want us dead. The West’s war with the Middle East is getting uglier.
“I think we do know that terrorist organizations have an interest in using drones,” FBI Director Christoper Wray testified.
“We’ve seen that overseas already with growing frequency. I think the expectation is that it’s coming here imminently. I think they are relatively easy to acquire, relatively easy to operate, and quite difficult to disrupt and monitor.”
Crazed militants don’t have access to the sophisticated drones used by the U.S. military, but they don’t need to. A simple drone purchased online can easily be fitted out with a bomb or gun, or even a toxic chemical. It would be nearly impossible for authorities to stop the attack.
“Two years ago this was not a problem. A year ago it was an emerging problem. Now it’s a real problem. So we’re quickly trying to up our game,” Nicholas Rasmussen, director of the National Counterterrorism Center, said.
Thank goodness President Trump has instituted a fresh travel ban. One way to protect ourselves from assault is to keep terrorists from infiltrating the country in the first place.
