Emboldened by the alleged murder of American journalist James Foley, threats by the terror group ISIS against the United States have reached fever pitch.
But the ramped-up rhetoric isn’t affecting one former US marine, who is reminding the Islamic extremists that America is filled with 21.2 million “pissed off veterans who have been dealing with years of abuse from government stabbing them in the backs.”
The Facebook post, penned by Iraq war veteran Nick Powers, has gone viral under the hashtag #AmessageFromtheUStoISIS, along with a photo of marines posing around a sign that reads, “72 virgin dating service apply here.”
To all you ignorant Islamic extremist f***s. As I sit here watching you execute women, children and men in the Middle East I chuckle. Why do I chuckle you may ask? Well let me explain something to you idiots who think you are so tough. You are scaring a population that doesn’t know how to fight, you’re bullying the weak. What did Saddam’s troops do when we came to town? Surrendered, twice… All your threats of coming to America and raising your flag over the White House amuse me more than you could ever understand. In 2012 there were 21.2 million veterans in the United States. Do you understand what that means? That means there are millions of pissed off veterans who have been dealing with years of abuse from their government stabbing them in the backs and having to watch friends die because you Islamic idiots can’t seem to act like human beings and stop terrorism and violence. It’s one thing to take over an Islamic state, pretty sure we plowed through Fallujah in 4 days, do you really think you stand a chance on US soil? Do you really think it would be smart to poke that bear? Remember we are armed in the US and I can promise you that the Geneva Conventions will not apply to you. You attack us and there is no mercy. The ball is in your court Islam, we are more than ready to send you to your “prophet” Mohamed….
UPDATE: To all who read this and assume this is against all Muslims, I am sorry you are too blind to read, this isn’t against Muslims in general. If you feel otherwise I suggest you look at yourself in the mirror and ask yourself one question, am I an extremist? You say Islam is the religion of peace, since when does terrorizing the innocent (beheading women and children, wtf?) mean peace? This is directed at all extremist, if this offends/makes you angry or think I am racist you are are probably an extremist…
UPDATE: Powers later appeared on Fox News to elaborate on his statements, where he claimed the only way to stop ISIS was for the U.S. to put “boots on the ground.”
“You can bomb whatever you want, but without boots on the ground, you’re never going to fully accomplish any kind of mission militarily,” Powers said.
Not so fast.
As Paul Joseph Watson noted in his report from yesterday, there are numerous reasons we should view the purported beheading video with suspicion, not the least of which is the fact that it has been mysteriously “scrubbed” from Youtube, when multiple other gruesome terrorist beheading videos still exist and can be readily accessed.
