    So where's the black box?

    Now you're just derping. That crash actually happened.

    I'm going to (unbidden) try and make the best case for solovsfett. The guys with tanks and RPGs in Syria are no physical threat to, say, France. However, France does have a very large, very p1ssed off Islamic minority, and young males with no job and no future in large numbers are always a-holes. If IS or ISIS or ISIL or Da'ish or whatever they're called this week stay in the news burning people alive and crucifying children, the Parisian authorities may find themselves with a "monkey see, monkey do" problem.

    Imagine, for example, what would happen if a large portion of the American black community woke up one morning and said, "400 years of this sh1t is enough -- let's burn whitey's house," and then proceeded to do that as efficiently and effectively as they could, with whitey inevitably returning the favor. We know what ethno-religious civil wars look like -- we've seen Kosovo and Rwanda. Even if/when the army finally restores order, there are neatly stacked piles of bodies and limbs everywhere. It's really an eyesore.

    So that's what solovsfett may be talking about. Throw radicalizing religious fanatics into a ghettoized, poor, uneducated population, and the sky's the limit for the trouble they can gin up. The best you can hope for is Mississippi; the worst is about as close to an existential threat as western countries are likely to face.

    ??? On the move from where? Away from areas in Syria and Iraq they once declared strategically important but now are losing back?

    They are making headlines with gruesome killings and they move quickly into vulnerable areas of unrest and instability, but they are not going to overrun Italy.

    They might already have overrun your bedroom closet, though, the way it sounds.

    Stopped them from what? Nation destroying speaking.

    If you're talking about infiltration via normally functioning ports-of-call, why does the distance to Sicily matter?

    It looked more like something cops would do.

    Oh, please. For one thing, rural PDs are riddled with these types. For another, they drape themselves with the Constitution the way WBC drapes itself with the Gospels. They're the same garden variety paramilitary fascists you find in any rural society challenged by modernity: Taliban, Breivik, these creeps -- same people. And for another, Obama has been less willing to take these schmucks on than Bush because of the political optics. FNC and that ilk cream their jeans for tin-star cultists like Bundy.
