Mike Vanderboegh:Chattanooga Attack: Where was the Armed Citizen?
So, another Jihadi has murdered four Marines in Chattanooga. So what? What about this WASN'T absolutely predictable and predicted? Arguments over whether he represented "international" or "home-grown, domestic" terror or even the characterization of him as a "lone wolf" (as if that represents some sort of solace), are utterly beside the point and irrelevant. I have written and spoken about 4GW many times before. The Jihadi version of it is a weaponized idea, indiscriminate and evil beyond measure. Comments on this blog and elsewhere that the US federal government is a greater threat to our lives and liberty than any Jihadi are also true, but irrelevant to the families of the dead Marines and everyone else for that matter. The Jihadis have determined that they are in a global war with us, all of us -- our families, our friends, the innocent, wherever we live and whatever we do. We cannot opt out of it because they will not let us.
