Ripped from the Phantom Soapbox: Plans to weaponize bubonic plague discovered in Syria.

What have I been saying? Danger of bubonic plague on the Southern US border is large even without terrorists. With them? Oh baby!
The information on the laptop makes clear that its owner is a Tunisian national named Muhammed S. who joined ISIS in Syria and who studied chemistry and physics at two universities in Tunisia's northeast. Even more disturbing is how he planned to use that education: The ISIS laptop contains a 19-page document in Arabic on how to develop biological weapons and how to weaponize the bubonic plague from infected animals.

"The advantage of biological weapons is that they do not cost a lot of money, while the human casualties can be huge," the document states.

The document includes instructions for how to test the weaponized disease safely, before it is used in a terrorist attack. "When the microbe is injected in small mice, the symptoms of the disease should start to appear within 24 hours," the document says.

The laptop also includes a 26-page fatwa, or Islamic ruling, on the usage of weapons of mass destruction. "If Muslims cannot defeat the kafir [unbelievers] in a different way, it is permissible to use weapons of mass destruction," states the fatwa by Saudi jihadi cleric Nasir al-Fahd, who is currently imprisoned in Saudi Arabia. "Even if it kills all of them and wipes them and their descendants off the face of the Earth."

Then there's this:

For those of us who've been raising alarms about both the jihadist threat and the national-security vulnerability created by the Obama administration's non-enforcement of the immigration laws, this is not a surprise — particularly less than two weeks before September 11. But it is nonetheless jarring to read. Judicial Watch has just put out this statement:

"Islamic terrorist groups are operating in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez and planning to attack the United States with car bombs or other vehicle born improvised explosive devices (VBIED). High-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources have confirmed to Judicial Watch that a warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border has been issued.  Agents across a number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies have all been placed on alert and instructed to aggressively work all possible leads and sources concerning this imminent terrorist threat."

How you liking that Hope and Change, America?

Unfortunately, even most of the Party of Stupid is helping the Democrats sabotage border protection. This in spite of polls consistently showing AT LEAST 70% of the population supporting border control, regardless of party affiliation.

When I first saw that story earlier today, a part of me thought 'I hope they succeed'. It's not because I want people to get hurt or killed - it's because I recognize that, unfortunately, the only way politicians will ever try to secure the border is if it becomes too politically toxic to ignore it. None of these bastards cares about anything past their next re-election. An attack like this might be the only thing that gets them to secure the damned border against even larger threats.

Am I a terrible person for thinking that?

Unfortunately it would be gun runners redux: as long as only peons get killed, nobody cares.

Now if these Jihadis use heavily armed technicals to make a delivery run to Austin, then maybe things will get serious.
