A top Pentagon official gave a dire warning that terrorist group ISIS-K could be ready to attack the United States within the next six months to a year. Colin Kahl, the undersecretary of defense policy, told the Senate Armed Services Committee that ISIS-K and al Qaeda intent to conduct “external operations” which include against the U.S.

The Hill reports:

“We could see ISIS-K generate that capability in somewhere between six and twelve months,” Kahl said. “I think the current assessments by the intelligence community is that al Qaeda would take a year or two to reconstitute that capability.”

The timeline is slightly faster than previous estimates; late last month, Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Mark Milley said that al Qaeda or ISIS could reconstitute by early spring 2022.

“It’s a real possibility in the not too distant future, six, 12, 18, 24, 36 months, that kind of time frame, for reconstitution of al Qaeda or ISIS,” Milley said at the time.

Kahl noted that The Taliban is considered a top enemy of ISIS-K, and therefore are “highly motivated” to after the terrorist organization.

“It is our assessment that the Taliban and ISIS-K are mortal enemies,” Kahl said. “So the Taliban is highly motivated to go after ISIS-K. Their ability to do so, I think, is to be determined.”

A law that illegal aliens must serve in our military on the front lines might deter the invasion!

Your kidding of coarse. A bunch of ingrates that wouldn’t fight to straighten out their own county and are invading our country for free stuff is not about to fight for it. All those’young’ men are the same age as our young men who fought in WW-2 to save the world. These invaders are willing to carry fentynal on their backs in back packs into our country to pay off the cartels that are sneaking them into America the now stupid country.

No I don’t think so. But, on the other hand, put them on the front lines and their own behavior would probably take care of them for us.

Why not, those new recruits can be made to do what the Chinese did in the Korean war… Only the front line gets rifles and when they fall the next line picks up the dropped rifles. Of course they were injected with drugs and felt no pain. They were known as the ‘Opium Attacks’. How many of you studied history and remember reading of these things or are you just tagging along in life expecting your so-called entitlements

Yep front lines would be good……BUT….you want any of them in the same fox hole or covering your back. I sure would not. Heck you might be under attack….and they would stop, put there little rug down and start there required prayer instead if fighting.

The next war won’t be fought on any front line. It will come to your front door. It will start by taking out as many utilities as posable. Introducing bio warfare. They will let us destroy ourselves because the majority can’t survive without electronic support. We are so over indulged that that loss of our services will cause panic and then the demand from government to save them Then turning upon neighbors that are somewhat prepared, demanding that they share with them. When they won’t, then they will try to take it. They need to sit back until we destroy ourselves. ————Grampa

If you know of an attack then it isn’t and attack. The one you have to worry about is the terrorist that are already here and embedded in our government as sleeper cells and remaking havoc on our constitution. Open your eyes, you act like they were never a such thing as someone placed and embedded in our government to self inflict damage like a Trojan horse. Think about it please

He already knows… it was Milley & Biden’s decision to make the Taliban Great using our Military Equipment. It will take less than 5 seconds for Biden to forget.

The attack would be welcomed by Obama. He is a staunch believer in Islam and he would love the US to become Islamic, especially if it would result in eliminating all of the Jewish and Christian population in America. Biden couldn’t care less, because he doesn’t know the time of day. I wonder when all of the Muslims are welcomed to America , if Biden will offer each of them $450,000 of our tax money as well? We really are witnessing the systematic destruction of the United States of America right before our eyes. I never, in my 80 years, would imagined such an event could happen. It’s happening folks. I only hope that there is still something left to salvage if we somehow manage to outlast Biden, Pelosi and their gang of henchmen. God help us!!!

I suspect that the Taliban and ISIS-K will find the average American citizen to be tougher than they expect. Don’t forget there are about 15 to 30 million military veterans in this country. Some of us are getting a little long in the tooth, BUT we can still pull a trigger!
Our federal government has shown us that they do not value our lives and are trying to import foreigners to keep themselves in power. Eventually they will cross the line and they will start a fight. I’m glad I am not in the federal government any more!

Look at all of the ex-military who are running for Congress. Think they are going to sand down?

Milley the traitor will probably help them gain access to the US and maybe even supply them with whatever they need for their attacks.

You do understand that ISIS was a creation of CIA and MI6 when Obummer was president and McCain was helping with stealing Syrian oil and blowing up Syrian infrastructure….

They believe they are ready! It can and could be done, but not by any direct action. It will be done from within. Attacks upon our infrastructure. The resulting crisis will first cause confusion and inaction. Then a fight for power and control. So much effort directed against each other to be in charge that recovering America is all but forgotten. Depending upon the military to save America. If they are not focused upon ruling the country themselves. the answer comes from the same type of patriots we had that started this nation. people that will recognize the threats and remove them.by force when necessary.——Grampa
