Well, it’s official… Las Vegas is a target for attack. To be honest, we have been for a while. In an article by Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, or AQAP, Las Vegas along with other U.S. locations was identified as likely targets for Jihadists. Never happen here you say? I’m sure Americans in Fort Hood, Boston, and New York thought the exact same thing. Here at usCrow.org we don’t subscribe to naiveté, and neither should you…
What are the odds ISIS will attack Las Vegas?
First let me say this, Haji is a hypocrite. Everything about Americans that makes radical Islamic organizations such as ISIS target us for attack, are the very things Haji loves to do when he goes to Vegas. I’ve been here for over a decade and its common knowledge Muslim men are nefarious for; hookers, prostitutes, drugs, gambling, and everything else punk rock. Who could forget last New Year’s Eve when Mazen Alotaibi, a Saudi Arabian Sergeant with the Royal Saudi Air Force, was arrested for raping a 13 year old boy? The truth is… when radicalism vs. hypocrisy, radicalism wins.
Strategic Advantage to Attack Las Vegas
I know what you’re thinking ‘Who’d attack some town in the middle of the desert with a few overly indulgent millionaires and strippers that reek of Victoria’s Secret Cotton Candy body powder?’… Believe it or not, there are several damn good reasons we are on ISIS and Al Qaeda’s hit list.
In the world of terrorism, global shock wins the prize. It’s nothing new really, it’s about demoralizing your enemy, and if your enemy is the entire Western civilized world – you’re going to need a target with international attention. Last year, Las Vegas was visited by over thirty-nine million people from all over the world, and at any given time just one of our strip hotels house over three thousand people. Just one Las Vegas strip hotel and groups like ISIS get the attention they clearly thirst for.
Not only does their target need to have international attention, but it needs to represent their supposed Jihad. Timothy McVeigh bombed the Alfred P Murrah Federal Building. In his Neanderthal attempt to hurt the federal government he ended up killing innocent men, women, and children. Al Qaeda’s kamikaze cowards flew our own jets into the World Trade Center in an attempt to strike fear into the Western world’s heart. The IRA detonated a 1500kg bomb in Manchester injuring over two hundred people. The list goes on, all with two primary principles, audience and symbolism.
Las Vegas is the melting pot of the world where all nationalities, ethnicities, and religions come to blow off steam and enjoy the American way of life, albeit this is not how every American lives every day, but for that one weekend these people are in Las Vegas – they’re free to do as they please without retribution. Even Mohammed Atta (9/11 attacker) came here and enjoyed Western civilization before attacking it. Don’t worry, Hell hath no shortages of Muslim terrorists…
Will Las Vegas be attacked?
If we lived in an age where logic prevailed, and The Constitution was upheld, I’d say no, but we do not live in such a time. No, ladies and gentlemen, we live in an age where none of our borders are protected. Someone with zero military training, no survival instinct, or the ability to speak English can stroll right into our country without a single care in the world. Not only do we have to worry about foreign invaders walking into our country, but we have to worry about traitors. American citizens who have betrayed their country like John Walker Lindh, who fought for the Afghan Taliban against the northern alliance, Army Pvt. Eric Harroun fighting in Syria, and dozens of other traitors fighting for terrorist organizations.
Yes, we live in an age where we grant U.S. permanent residency to Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who was flagged by the F.B.I. as a suspected terrorist, went on to bomb the Boston City Marathon with his brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev (an American citizen). With only two cheap pressure cookers and a shit load of shrapnel these idiots were capable of demobilizing an entire city, injuring 280 people, and killing 4 others.
Is Las Vegas ready for an attack?
Short answer – no. No offense to the Las Vegas Fusion Counterterrorism Task Force, but we are seriously fucked when and if we’re attacked. Have you ever been to a Las Vegas Casino before? If you have you would have easily noticed there are several casinos that are situated on top of, or tightly adjacent to their parking structures.
If a standard 3.5 lb claymore has a blast range of 100+ yards, what do you think a van full explosives would do? Ask Timothy McVeigh. It wouldn’t be hard really. Casino parking structures have minimal security aside from a few overweight rent-a-cops who are more concerned with the drunk pissing off the top level than they are with one white van out of twenty where the driver simply parks and walks away.
There’s literally no security in our Casinos unless it has something to do with gambling. They are not looking for some random Middle Eastern guy with an oversized jacket. They’re looking at the people gambling, the card counters, the swindlers, and etc., everyone except Haji with a trench coat.
Hell, the Fusion Center has one privately funded counterterrorism analyst who openly admits they don’t have the resources to prevent an attack, and that the city must rely on the hope that the valet, or the security guard read Nevada’s 7 Signs of Terrorism. Well, they don’t. I’ve asked several acquaintances and friends who are in the industry if they had even heard of the 7 Signs of Terrorism and every single one of them said no. Feeling uneasy yet? There’s more…
Las Vegas Emergency Management Planning
Casinos don’t even regularly practice fire drills let alone adequate emergency management planning. You’d think our state and local government would have some sort of plan in response to an act of terrorism in such a densely populated area, right? Wrong. You know what our CERTs are doing this month? An ‘Emergency Kit’ Cook Off, and later on they’ll be learning how to Beat The Heat. Now, we can cruise over to the Clark County website and see what plans they have, but we’ll find nothing more than Flood Preparedness tips. By the way, our ‘floods’ are short lived and more of a danger to idiots in Miatas trying to drive through two feet of water than anyone else.
Any information you want, you’ll need to hunt down for yourself. If there is a plan, it’s confidential, and I’m sure it’ll include the use of a few MRAPs and a few violations of civil liberty. Call it what you will, but the idea that we are impervious to an attack is insane, and we should all be preparing in one way or the other, because Las Vegas – unlike other cities – has ten times more weaknesses and five times more strategic value.
