gatesofvienna.blogspot.com/ notes that Fox had a story on an FBI investigation of Somalis taking an interest in learning how to drive Semis.


"A Warning Sign?"


Fox News had a video up tonight titled “Warning Signs.”

The FBI in Kansas City is said to be conducting an investigation into a truck-driving school in West Plains, Missouri.

The South Central Career Center, with its peeling sign out front, offers truck driving lessons. It seems to have attracted a large number of Somali Muslims from a community of Somalis in Kansas City. In the last 18 months, the majority of its students have been Somalians.

Should we be concerned? Probably. Why in the Midwest? Why the concentration of Somalis in this line of work? Is this anything like flight training school except you don’t have to learn to land? Are they bothering to learn how to brake one of those things?

In a way, trucks are of more concern than planes. They are ubiquitous, a commonplace in our everyday landscape. They pass us all the time on the highway and we don't even notice. An 18 wheeler loaded surreptitiously with something explosively unstable could be a nightmare beyond the wildest imaginings of whatever concerns Dubai Ports raised.

The FBI is investigating, but it isn’t talking. I’ll bet a great many driving schools are under scrutiny. Fox News just happened upon one of them.



Edit: Could be something, might be nothing. Just another thing to keep in mind.

Maybe they finally figured out it was better for them to transport their own food, rather than relying on the UN.

I heard the same thing, and the report added that 60% of the 'new drivers' were Somalian/Muslims.

I think that alone is HIGHLY suspicious and those trucks definitely can be used to deliver WMD's if they're already in the U.S.

It is happening in public transportation as well.

Another piece of racist trash from FauxNews. These fine immigrants are having a hard enough time making it a white, Christian dominated world without being castigated for trying to learn a trade.

Maybe they all watched "Over the Top" on movie night at the mosque? Did you ever think of that?

There's just a lower demand for Taxi drivers, so they have to find another line or work.

Somalis are Muslims? wow I never knew that. ahem

What pays more - driving semis or taxis?

that said, it bears a little attention, but I'm not sure I'ld go to a serious increase in readiness without a little more watching.

They must not have heard the Dubai port deal was called off.

A few dozen big trucks full of ANFO going off on bridges over the Mississippi from St Louis to N.O. could be a bit of a bother.

Well, I guess it's better than shooting RPG's at cruise ships.

Well, I guess they are meticulous.

Give anyone here 30 minutes in a rig. It's not like flying a plane.

I find it suspicious, that you agree that "accelerate" is spelled "excelerate".

Why would they want to stop excelerating, whatever the hell that is?

It is better imho to have some extreme, fanatic, shithead planning to attack using anything - Planes ,Boats, Trucks -whatever as long as the bastards dont plan to use guns
(the damn liberals will scream for gun control then- AWB all over again only worse!),

Honestly - I'm ok with their silly little planing. After all, world conflict is never going away -

Say they drive 5 or 10 Petro tanker trucks into some CNG facilities at the worst .
What do we do to counter......?
We drive 200,000+ red blooded USA soldiers through there homeland and build American military bases on there heads where the towels used to be wraped.
Kill them all & Let God............well God knows what to do.

Can we just have one or two informational threads about stuff relating to Islam without "kill 'em all" sentiments being posted in it???
