The Terrorist Express - A One-way Ticket to Martyrdom. This is a joke - right? Ah, nope.


Recent news post:  “Six Men in Minnesota and San Diego Arrested by the FBI.”  (They were intending to join ISIS).  They were all U.S. citizens of Somali descent.

Charged were:  Mohamed Abdihamid Farah, age 21; Adnan Abdihamid Farah, age 19; Abdurahman Yasin Daud, age 21; Zacharia Yusuf Abdurahman, age 19; Hanad Mustafe Musse, age 19; and Guled Ali Omar, age 20.

Now, some or all of them will deny (once they lawyer-up) any intention of joining ISIS; and they, of course, will be entitled to a trial.  Of those, some will undoubtedly get set free on a technicality.  Some will serve a few years in prison.  All will be a lot more careful in the future when discussing their terrorist plans with potential FBI informants.

But, first, they should be asked the following:  ‘Do you really want to join ISIS? However, before you answer, if that is your wish, the US government will purchase your airline ticket – with the stipulation that you will never be allowed back in the United States – and if you return, or attempt to return, you will be sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole.’

Why must we spend millions of taxpayer dollars on a protracted trial for these individuals?  And, if convicted, spending countless other millions on their subsequent incarceration - in the process hardening their resolve and hate of what America stands for?


This could be a wonderful way to clean-out the want-to-be terrorists from this country.  The FBI should put out an advertisement in the media offering the same deal to anyone interested in joining ISIS.  Let these losers go play army – and good riddance.

Here’s your one-way ticket in coach.  Or maybe, even better, charter a plane.  How about an old moth-balled C-130, with only jump-seats, individual parachutes, and a plentiful supply of khat?’  The 'terrorist express.'
