The "Patriot" movement - booming but still to be busted

What the USA needs is a war on the actual terrorism which is growing at an alarming rate in the USA itself.

Here in Britain we're well aware that the main terrorist threat, now as it has always been, is not from people who look like Osama bin Laden but from people who look like Anders Breivik or Timothy McVeigh. Or like these guys. Or this one, come to that, whose gang of thugs slaughtered more civilians (many of them British) when they blew up the King David Hotel than the 7/7 bombers did in London. Of course, no government runs a museum celebrating the 7/7 bombers, nor is the anniversary of that atrocity the subject of national celebration. (Though of course it's only Israel's ruling regime that celebrates terrorism: ordinary Israelis are as horrified by it as ordinary Americans, Arabs or Iranians.)

So by all means remember the people who died on September 11th 2001 (though please remember all of them, not just the New Yorkers - and remember many of them were Muslims), but let's also remember the victims of the second-largest loss of life from a terrorist attack in the USA. I know I will, when we visit Oklahoma City this summer.

They are not domestic terrorist groups, they are people that support the constitution and are planning on replacing the government which no longer servers the people, with all of those guns the constitution says they can have to do just that.
At least I think that's what they are saying to themselves.
