Will Democracies Combat Terror?

Sadly, major world powers, including the United Nations, have not appeared serious about fighting terrorism or the Islamic State (ISIS, IS) or similar terrorist groups.

UN Security Council Resolution 2170 (August 15, 2014) called on member-states to take “national measures to prevent fighters from traveling from their soil to join the IS and deny it any arms or financial support. The resolution also “expressed readiness to consider putting on the sanctions list those who facilitated the recruitment and travel of foreign fighters.”

The continued growth of the Islamic State, however, shows that the UN’s member states have done little to fight it. According to an intelligence estimate more than 20,000 fighters have arrived in Syria and Iraq to fight for the IS. Of these, about a quarter hail from North America, Australia and Europe. Clearly, such a movement of IS fighters would not have been possible if the member states had been conscientious about implementing the UN resolution.


I doubt it, most western democracies now have a significant 5th column within their borders.

Unscrupulous politicians and all the usual suspects provide aid and comfort to the enemy while proclaiming themselves our moral superiors.

Mass immigration and the dumping of thousands of dubious refugees benefits no one but the elites.

This ongoing destruction of western societies is defended by declaring dissent racist.

Criminalization will be next.

    Criminalization will be next? It’s already here!
    The UK police are already sending officers to people houses “requesting” that they remove twitter postings critical of immigration.
    That’s full-on ‘police state’ tactics.

    • That is nutz!

        As Daniel Greenfield wrote yesterday, until we defeat the left, the real protector of Islam, we cannot truly fight Islamic terror.
        Without that protection, Islam would be gone from the west in but a few years.

          What I think will happen: the left stays, destroys us and Islam wins in the end.

            Long before it gets to that point you will see mass butchery and it will not be Muslums or leftists doing the butchering.
            I have no fear of an Islamic victory at all.

            I told my mother-in-law that we will see a civil war in the US in the next decade. I said it in 2012 so I guess that only leaves 6 years to go.

          Said that right from the beginning. Absolutely. They are the Cowards in every story who open the gate for the barbarians to get in. They are Judas Iscariot betraying us all for 30 pieces of silver.

    At the rate things are going we are about to find out soon enough.

    An ideology that demands servitude and submission is a perfect fit for socialism; why would they fight it?

  • canminuteman

    It will deteriorate until there is open civil war, and the chances of our government doing anything to stop it, or even being on our side are slim to nil.

    The good news here is that the dolts who are letting all these people in are also the dolts who think they can control popular opposition. Not much chance of that even with the SJW cretins at Facebook and Twitter banning and blocking.

    But, I fear, it will have to get much worse before it gets better.

    Too amusing to see the Swedes talking tough about deporting faux refugees… The Swedes!

      I know Right?

      How Racist and Xenophobic of them. Where’s your tolerance now eh, Sweden?
