Potential Terrorists?

Our returning war heroes?

"The return of military veterans facing significant challenges reintegrating into their communities could lead to the potential emergence of terrorist groups or lone wolf extremists capable of carrying out violent attacks. Returning veterans possess combat skills and experience that are attractive to right-wing extremists, DHS/I&A is concerned that right-wing extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize veterans in order to boost their violent capacities”

  • There has always been the worry that returning veterans might turn violent on their own country.

  • Sounds a bit far-fetched to me. I'm sure there would be a few isolated cases of that happening, but I doubt it's some huge threat. And right-wingers aren't the only ones with extremist groups. Couldn't radical environmentalist groups just as easily want to gain the skills of these vets? Not all returning soldiers are conservative so they could be won over by those groups easily.

    First they're 'over priced tax burdens' now they're terrorists. It's amazing!

    They really should make a sweetpea shaking her head in disgust, that would be great!

  • Why are we always concerned about the right wing extremist and not the left wing extremist?  Why is it the right wings extremists are painted in a bad light and the left wing, well they are not painted at all.

  • I find this offensive, my dad is a vet and so is my husband. Man when are these people going to get a life.
