U.S. State Department Issues Travel Alert for Europe Beacause of Threat of Terrorist Attacks

One would have thought this would have already been in effect …

The U.S State Department has issued a travel alert for Europe due to the continued threat of terrorist attacks. With the continued terrorist acts throughout Europe, one wonders whether this is the new norm for the old continent?

In the alert, the State Department cited recent incidents in France, Russia, Sweden and the United Kingdom and said Islamic State and al Qaeda “have the ability to plan and execute terrorist attacks in Europe.”

The State Department’s previous travel alert for Europe, issued ahead of the winter holiday season, expired in February. A State Department official said Monday’s alert was not prompted by a specific threat, but rather recognition of the continuing risk of attacks especially ahead of the summer holidays. The alert expires on Sept. 1.

Malls, government facilities, hotels, clubs, restaurants, places of worship, parks, airports and other locations are all possible targets for attacks, the State Department’s alert said.

US Drops MOAB, Mother of All Bombs, on ISIS in Afghanistan (VIDEO)

TRUMP ADMINISTRATION DROPS MOTHER OF ALL BOMBS ON ISIS … NOW THIS IS A WAR ON TERROR!!!

As reported at FOX News, the U.S. military dropped its largest non-nuclear bomb on an ISIS tunnel complex in eastern Afghanistan on Thursday. The MOAB, a 30 feet long and 22,000 pounds Massive Ordinance Air Blast, or otherwise known as the “Mother of all Bombs” was let off the chain and deployed in the Nangarhar Province close to the Afghanistan/Pakistan border. During the presidential campaign, Donald Trump promised to “bomb the sh*t” out of ISIS. Looks like another promise kept and a sign to the world that the United States has a new sheriff in town.

Why does this so remind me of the scene from the movie Iron Man I where Tony Stark is doing Jericho Missile Test. Stark says, “is it better to be feared or respected?” He follows up by saying, “Is it asking to much for both?” Stark goes on to say, “They say, the best weapon is one you never have to fire. I, respectfully disagree. I prefer the one you only have to fire once … For your consideration, The Jericho Mother of all Bombs!”

Yup, that’s how America and a strong President Does It!

The U.S. military dropped its largest non-nuclear bomb on an ISIS tunnel complex in eastern Afghanistan on Thursday, a U.S. defense official confirmed to Fox News.

The GBU-43B, a 21,000-pound conventional bomb, was deployed in Nangarhar Province close to the Afghanistan/Pakistan border. By comparison, each Tomahawk cruise missile launched at a Syrian military air base last week weighed 1,000 pounds each.

The MOAB — Massive Ordnance Air Blast — is also known as the “Mother Of All Bombs.” It was first tested in 2003, but hadn’t been used in combat before Thursday.

Pentagon spokesman Adam Stump said the bomb had been brought to Afghanistan “some time ago” for potential use. The bomb explodes in the air, creating air pressure that can make tunnels and other structures collapse. It can be used at the start of an offensive to soften up the enemy, weakening both its infrastructure and morale.

UPDATE I: 36 ISIS fighters killed by US ‘mother of all bombs’:

Just a helpful hint to the liberal media and the LEFT, this bomb was used to more than just eradicate IRIS, it shows just what the US in now willing to do against threats to the United States.

President Donald Trump during 2017 Address to Congress … “Protect Our Nation from Radical Islamic Terrorism” (VIDEO)

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP GOES THERE THERE … WE WILL TAKE STRONG MEASURES TO PROTECT OUR NATION FROM RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORISM!!!

sotu-rad islam

So much for Barack Obama’s Overseas Contingency Operation … It has been a long time in coming and it took President Donald Trump to say it during his first Address to Congress to unabashedly name the enemy confronting the United States and the rest of the world, radical Islamic terrorism!!! The WAPO described the 3 words used by President Trump  as the ‘Three words that separate Trump from most of Washington.’ Note to WAPO, Democrats, liberals and the rest of the MSM, you know who also uses those same three words and are on the side of President Donald J. Trump, WE THE PEOPLE!!!

Via Breitbart:

“We’re also taking strong measures to protect our nation from radical Islamic terrorism,” Trump said in his address to a joint session of Congress on Tuesday night, with Republicans and one Democrat, Rep. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), responding with a standing ovation.

“According to data provided by the Department of Justice, the vast majority of individuals convicted of terrorism and terrorism related offenses since 9/11 came here from outside of our country,” Trump said.

“We have seen the attacks at home from Boston to San Bernardino to the Pentagon and, yes, even the World Trade Center,” Trump said. “We have seen the attacks in France, in Belgium, in Germany, and all over the world.

“It is not compassion but reckless to allow uncontrolled entry from places where proper vetting cannot occur,” Trump said.

FBI ARREST WIFE OF ORLANDO NIGHTCLUB MASSACRE …

The FBI has arrested Noor Salman, the wife of the terrorist who carried out the deadly shooting attack in Orlando, Florida in 2016.
