ISIS beheads U.S. Journalist – similar to Mexican Beheadings of Journalist - Theory - Is it Possible ISIS is Operating on the US Border?
In a graphic video released by the terrorist organization ISIS, American journalist, James Wright Foley, was beheaded after being held captive for two years. (New York Daily News). The organization, middle eastern, Radicalized Muslim, uses the practice of beheading on a regular basis, be it men, women, and yes, even children who are of Christian or what they believe to be heretical Muslims. What is interesting in this schematic is the war in Mexico, where similar tactics are used.
During the past decade long war, examples of murder, specifically of journalist has been catalogued by Justice in Mexico.org, the method favored by those who would stifle the press is – beheading. (Justice in Mexico)
In looking at the culture in Mexico now, going back centuries to cultures that no longer exist, there are no specific references made to the practice of beheading. There is only one place in the world where it is a cultural norm and that is the Middle East. Which begs some questions as to what has brought the practice to Mexico? One might look to the trends of criminal organizations (cartels, etc.) working hand in hand with paramilitary extremists from other nations in a mutually advantageous arrangement – the drug money being used to fund further purchases of arms and weapons by those “strongmen” who would aid the drug (or alcohol, what have you) cartels.
With the open borders now in evidence, and the decade where this border has been porous – is it truly a stretch of the imagination for anyone to believe that ISIS may have a presence in the US, and are the threats being made now, evidence of that fact. A note of caution, however, as jumping to conclusions rather than theorizing can occur, should a video of a protestor emerge, holding an ISIS banner in Missouri (CNN news broadcast) – that individual may not actually know what the banner stands for, or any flag for that matter. This is referring to a news report video form CNN showing exactly that, and, as a result, causing a bit of discomfort for those who actually watch the news. What one might find more worrisome is the theoretical connection between the two organization of ISIS and the Mexican Drug Cartels, considering again, that a methodology for dispatching one’s enemies that has never been a part of a specific culture or continent is now prevalent.
