As bad as it already is, it is certain to spread.
Recent acts of terror in Europe are the “new normal” — and surely coming soon to the United States, former NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton ominously warned Sunday.
Evildoers have stepped up attacks on soft targets — such as London Bridge, Manchester Arena and Bastille Day in Nice — in the past 12 months, making a similar terrorist strike on American soil inevitable, Bratton told “The Cats Roundtable.”
Bratton blamed porous European borders for exacerbating the problem.
“The open-border situation in Europe is compounding the problem,” said Bratton, who served as NYPD commish in two stints, 1994-96 and 2014-16. “It [hinders the effort] of trying to keep track of people who identify as terrorists or having terrorist leanings.”
And you don’t have to take a counter-terrorism expert’s word for it; ISIS calls for more attacks.
The Islamic State group is calling on supporters to carry out attacks in the United States and Europe during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan that began two weeks ago.
In an audiotape circulated online Monday, spokesman Abu al-Hassan al-Muhajer praised last week’s attacks in Iran’s capital, saying the country is “weaker than a spider’s web” and calling for more assaults.
Al-Muhajer also called for attacks in Russia and Australia, saying “heaven is reached under the shadow of swords.”

Bratton is 100% correct about the open borders. That governments, Washington included, continue to allow in the hordes while knowing that some of them are actively engaged in war against the host nations is utterly insane.
Looking at the problem globally, the biggest issue has to be the migration factor. ISIS’s playground is in Syria, Iraq, etc. That’s their backyard. But for them to reach Europe, Russia, the U.S., and Australia, the logistics are only made possible by idiot pols allowing the influx. Again I say leave them in their backyards and keep them out of ours.
