Security experts have warned that Islamic militants might attack crowds watching the World Cup in public places in Nigeria, Kenya and Uganda, as they did in 2010 in Uganda. The explosions in Kampala, Uganda, at two sites where people watched the 2010 World Cup final on TV killed 74 people. Al-Shabab, a Somali insurgent group, set off those bombs.
Soccer is touted as the world’s favorite sport. It also appears soccer provides a venue for Islamic terrorists. Yes, yes, y’all think I’m an Islamophobe. (However, you might be interested to know phobe is a derivative of phobia from the root Greek word phobos who was the mythical god of the fear of the unknown. I actually do know who the enemy is and certainly do not fear them — so find a new descriptive word). But back to the story…
The Associated Press reports that an explosion at an illegal World Cup viewing site in northeast Nigeria killed at least 14 people while security forces arrested a “terror kingpin” among nearly 500 people detained as suspected terrorists in the southeast of the country. At least 26 people were wounded in Tuesday night’s blast as soccer fans were viewing the Brazil-Mexico match in Damaturu, the capital of Yobe state, police said.
I know, you’re probably asking, what is illegal about a World Cup viewing site? Well, the answer will shock you. Police Assistant Superintendent Nathan Cheghan said such viewing sites were banned in Yobe state two months ago because they have become a target of Boko Haram, those nice chaps who want to turn Nigeria into an Islamic state. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the explosion, but he blamed Boko Haram.
So the people in Nigeria have become so terrorized the police have made it illegal to gather and watch the world’s favorite sport? Imagine if Islamic terrorists attacked college football venues and the U.S. government made it illegal to attend college football games — well, that may work at Ivy League schools but it darn sure wouldn’t happen in SEC football country!

We as citizens need to be very careful of crowds even in this country,
Question why does anyone need to take there back pack shopping, I think it is time that the stores stop this, I see lots of weard ooooo at walmare with back packs on.. anyone have any suggestions,
Ididn't serve with any one in the military that indicated we were serving so we can have a socialist country.

Let's pray that he runs for President. Lord knows we need him.
Moot point! We'll be the middle of a civil war by then!! We can hope that he's leading the Constitutional Forces tho'!!!
obummer is a terrorist.
obama is too much of a weakling to be a terrorist but he is an enemy of the USA!
Perhaps the majority of patriots in and around the military services should disband the liberal progressive voices who are trying to control an anti-American ideology. Egypt did the honorable thing by imprisoning Morsi and [his] Muslim Brotherhood Theocracy, and though the "election" in Egypt was Democratic, the deception was much-like the American progressive fraud!!!
Now, with Baghdad having been given back to the enemy, "WE" must start to question more dramatically the exclusion of the XL Pipeline by our progressive administration!!! Was destruction of the oil pipelines in Iraq part of the progressive plan to bring America to [her] knees???
Col. West, when are WTP going to stop this crap? It's time to move against the Usurper and his thugs. You sir, our the natural and most capable leader that we have. The People are behind you!
rocquedog: If anyone knows what really needs to be done, Col. West does. He knows that most of us in uniform will stand with him, and he has the connections to formulate and execute. The time is not yet, but it is winding down.
If we don't get this man into public office, we are nuts. I would prefer to see him take dingy
harry's place. Come on Florida, we need this man in congress
To the above, just a suggestion why not put an appropriate PROFILE Pic, instead of SANTA.??Just sayin and readers ask me when I post your articles..
