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.'
