The United States has largely avoided the wholesale terrorism of Europe in recent months, but a new incident in Oklahoma has the FBI on high alert.
Late in the evening on Monday night, in a suburb of Tulsa, Oklahoma, an Air Force recruiting center became the target of what many believe was a low level operation carried out by a possible domestic terrorist. While authorities are still investigating, preliminary reports indicate that a pipe bomb-like device had exploded just outside of the recruiting center, causing minor damage to the property’s facade. No injuries were reported.
“A witness reported that someone on a motorcycle was in the area, and agents are pursuing that lead as they conduct interviews, Rice said.
“The FBI is not calling the case an act of domestic terrorism because investigators don’t have a suspect or a motive.
But terrorism has not been ruled out as a possible motive.”A few days earlier, a nearby National Guard recruiting center was vandalized, police said, according to Rice. That vandalism included slashed tires.
“The FBI said it is investigating whether the two attacks at military recruitment centers are related.”
Incidents of violence directed toward U.S. governmental entities has been on the rise in recent months, thanks to the liberally-motivated “resistance” movement against President Trump.Terrorism has largely been a problem local to Europe in recent months, as the European Union has refused to curb their unsustainable rate of refugee relocation. The program, which mandates that member nations receive and relocate predetermined numbers of middle eastern migrants, has been widely criticized for its absolute failure at recognizing the threat of radical Islamic terrorists from exploiting the system. ISIS and other groups have claimed that they are utilizing the relaxed border rules throughout Europe to place their caliphate operatives in several locations around the continent.
In the U.S., however, President Donald Trump has partially succeeded in installing a temporary travel ban that limits the number of people allowed to enter America from nations rife with terror. That legal move, combined with the nation’s overall attitude toward terrorism, has largely expelled the threat of international Islamic radicals from doing harm within our borders. Domestic terrorists, however, likely on the radical left, have continued to wreak havoc on our nation’s sensibilities as they work tirelessly to promote their New Civil War.
