81% of Isis-linked suspects charged in US are American citizens

None of the Isis-linked suspects who have ever been charged in the United States came from Syria and the overwhelming majority were born in the US, research reveals.

Sixty-eight people have been indicted because of alleged involvement in Isis, of whom 18 have been convicted, with an average sentence of 10 years three months, according to figures published this week by Center on National Security at Fordham University.

Yet despite a growing political clamour over a perceived security threat posed by an influx of Syrian refugees, the data shows that only three of those indicted in connection with Isis was a refugee or asylum seeker; none came from Syria.

Instead 55, or 80.9%, of the individuals concerned are US citizens, including 44 who were born in America. The rest include six born in Bosnia, four in Uzbekistan, three in Somalia and two in Sudan. Fifty-eight are men and 10 are women. The average age is 26 and around a third are under 21.

I agree that we are a waste to even be discussing terrorism in the first place but Boomer is an idiot and you're a lemming so the truth needs to be upheld.

So the question becomes how did they become radicalized? I think if one is to correct this problem one needs to understand how this happens.

I blame his saltiness on the fact that he posts these threads, then realises how they shoot holes in his own smarmy stupidity.

There is no cure for being a troll. If they had a case they would have posted it, Since they don't you get whatever drool comes out of their mouth. Sit back and enjoy seeing them implode.

On the internet?

You take psychologically affected people who are ready to kill and give them resources and a nice story.

It's the same as vigilantism.

It's about giving vulnerable individuals that extra little push to take arms.

psychologically affected? hahahahaha Unless a person is dead, they are psychologically affected.
Perhaps "conditioning" mind be a handy word for you?

It was an example.

People who gravitate to extremism don't have to be brainwashed about some ideology. They just have to believe that killing will justify whatever perception they have of the world.

To me it is about the same process that leads a person to join an army and go off to some foreign land and kill perfect strangers; dehumanize and demonize the "enemy" so killing them is not a problem.

Having your kids and wife killed in a drone strike would eliminate the need for any brainwashing.

America has been in meltdown since the Fed was created in 1913.

Ya, pretty much. I sin like a bastard, I don't feel the need to throw on a suicide vest and visit crowded places.

Canada was already ruined or Harper would never have been elected.
