A former CIA agent and top U.S. defence expert has warned that the world is more dangerous than it has ever been due to the rise of heavily armed and well funded terrorist groups.
Although the 21st century has not yet been subjected to the mass carnage and industrial scale slaughter caused by the global conflicts between superpowers in the 20th century, the increased threat of worldwide terrorism ensures that no nation can consider itself truly safe.
The terrifying spread of ISIS in the Middle East and North Africa, the rise of Boko Haram in Africa, Mexico’s drug cartels, and Russia’s bloody conflict with Ukraine on the doorstep of the E.U has claimed the lives of more than 1000,00 people this year alone.
A Syrian operative has claimed that more than 4,000 convert ISIS gunmen have already been hidden amongst innocent refugees and smuggled into western nations.
The ISIS smuggler claims that the undercover infiltration is just the beginning of a larger plot in retaliation to the US-led coalition airstrikes, and one which will see the terrorist group carry out mass revenge attacks on the West.
The Syrian operative announced that ISIS harbors ambitions to stamp its mark on the world.
“It’s our dream that there should be a caliphate not only in Syria but in all the world, and we will have it soon, God willing.”
In the U.K. many are alarmed that drastic governmental cuts to the army, navy and air force have left Britain vulnerable to threat from hostile powers.
The former head of MI6, Sir John Sawyers, believes that even at the height of the cold war, the world wasn’t as dangerous as it is now.
“It’s a much flatter world, a much more multi-polar world, and there are real dangers associated with that.”
The European Union President Jean-Claude Juncker is so concerned about Vladimir Putin and the continued concern of Russian expansionism, he has called upon Europe to create its own army and meet the threat head on.
