Terror Rising

      Just in time for the holidays, the State Department has issued a global travel alert to U.S. citizens warning of the increased likelihood of terror attacks by legions of terrorists — including the murderous Islamic State.
      The terse warning, posted on the State Department’s own website Monday, said American travelers should use “particular caution” in the coming weeks and through Feb. 24. (After February 24th, apparently, American travelers are free to cavort around the globe with reckless abandon, as ‘officials’ by then will have things well in hand).
      The governmental heads up continued, “Current information suggests that ISIS, Al Qaeda, Boko Haram and other terrorist groups continue to plan terrorist attacks in multiple regions.” The possible attacks could include “a wide variety of tactics targeting both official and private interests,” the State Department added. Thanks for that.

      According to, the annual number of world-wide deaths from terrorism has quadrupled since Barack Obama took office in 2009. These deaths were up 80% last year alone, to an all-time record of 32,658. In 2014, for the first time ever, eleven different nations saw 500 or more of their citizens killed by terror attacks.
