For those who think we have escaped ISIS’ attention, think again

“If you can kill a disbelieving American or European — especially the spiteful and filthy French — or an Australian, or a Canadian,” Mr. Adnani urged in an audio message, “then rely upon Allah and kill him in any manner or way however it may be.”

    Meh. Come to my funeral when I’m struck by lightning, which is far far far more likely to happen than being killed by ISIS. We can have a 140 year war against radical Islam, that’s all well and good. But we don’t need to run around squawking like our hair’s on fire.

    • Steve T says:

      The estimates of annual lightning strike fatalities range between 6000 and 24000 globally (look it up). However, the vast majority of those are in underdeveloped countries. In western countries, the numbers are in the hundreds, at most. We just lost 130 people in Paris to ISIS.

      In addition, I can take reasonable precautions and be virtually certain that neither me nor my family will ever be killed by a lightning strike. Hard to say the same thing about the lunatics in ISIS.

    • G. McRae says:

      One can reduce ones chances of getting struck by lightning. Death by ISIS could happen when innocently attending an “Eagles of Death Metal” concert or any other daily activity.

    ISIS: 5 essential things to know about the jihadi group’s ideology
    1. ISIS believes it is more powerful and resolute than its enemies.
    2. ISIS must constantly appear to be gaining momentum.
    3. Recruitment is paramount.
    4. Recruits aren’t necessarily devout.
    5. ISIS is essentially an apocalyptic suicide cult.

    Statistically speaking, you have a higher chance of being killed by a moose than a terrorist in Canada. I say, let’s send the CF-18’s against the moose!!
    Seriously though, we are and will be a target. There is a higher likelihood of the perpetrators being home grown than an import. So when C-51 is amended and not repealed, know there is a reason.

    It’s them, not us.

    Short of dropping out of NATO, nothing we can do about that. And maybe not even then.

    Best we can do is pitch in on efforts to dislodge them from their territory and destroy their leadership.

    If in those efforts we switch our air strike contributions to something else when our shift ends in March, to allow our new PM to save face about keeping his promise to withdraw, fine, but continue to make substantial contributions.

    The “British Columbia Liberal Party” is also that province’s conservative party in all but name.

    • Matt says:

      technically the BC Liberals are an amalgam of Conservatives and Liberals.

    • SG says:

      The BC Liberals are more of an amalgam of the federal Liberals and Conservatives.

      Hell, except for those few years when Action Démocratique was riding high, even the Quebec Liberals have had a right-wing element given that the PQ has historically been very socialist (aside from Lucien Bouchard of course, who was and is decidedly right-wing and non-statist).
