CARIBBEAN: T&T has limited resources to battle extremists – US general

trinidad-tobago-isis-militantCNC3 – In January, Marine Gen. John Kelly warned that the number of Islamic extremists in the Caribbean intent on attacking Western targets had increased in the last year.

That same month Turkish security forces told Hurriyet that four Trinidad and Tobago citizens were among those who had been detained the previous year on suspicion of belonging to Isis.

He said that 150 extremists from the region had attempted to travel to join Isis in 2015, an increase on the 100 who attempted to do so the previous year, and the focus of extremists in the region had changed from travelling to Isis-controlled territory, to committing attacks on targets at home.

Security experts have warned that Isis militants from the Caribbean could travel to the US or Canada to commit attacks, or target western holidaymakers on Caribbean islands.

“It seems like the Islamic extremists and terrorists have shifted a lot of their message,” Kelly told reporters at the Pentagon. “Why don’t you just stay at home and do a San Bernardino, or do Boston, or do Fort Hood?’,” he said, referring to attacks on US soil by Isis ‘lone wolf’ terrorists.

  1. You are encouraging Terrorism and you say I am talking nonsense for Not supporting the export of it by our people who have no business sticking our noses in something thousand of miles away!!??. If you are correct, why are the terrorist killing the poor Innocent people; and why are the people running from them if the terrorist are fighting for the people!!?? Terrorist make life MORE difficult for the poor, taking away what little Dignity, Rights and Lively hood they have. You are one of those Brainless Morons I wrote about. Your Stupidity is Astonishing!! It is people like you who cause pain and death. People who are poor and cannot afford life's amenities do not become Bank robbers, Thieves; or Terrorist. When Decent Law abiding people can take no more from the Rulers and Rise up, they do so to right what is wrong, Not to Brutalize, Rape, Murder or Terrorise. Senseless people like you cannot be reasoned with and that is why what you do and encourage others to do, should be done to you and also those who say you have Rights!! With people like YOU Breeding, it is no wonder the world is in the state it is!! I sincerely hope your children finish their Schooling!!. YOU have the Honour to be the First RETARDED RETARD I have the Misfortune to waste time Corresponding with.


  2. You should be the first to have your citizenship cancelled for talking such nonsense. Terrorism will breed where citizens are not satisfied and you should be encouraging your government to do more to take care of citizens who may or feel marginalized. You may be in your comfort zone where you have big job, nice car and big house and be able to afford healthcare or send children to school. Some people here cannot even afford food or transportation to get themselves out, what do you think is the end result?

    You people just go about peddling a bunch of nonsense. This is what terrorism is in our country; the non caring for our fellow men and coming in the media to bragg about it and talk all kind of foolishness.


    • You mentally lazy whoever you are, we have to work hard to feed and take care of you? I only owe my parents and children that, you must do your share and stop looking for excuses, you damn idiot.


  3. These Brainless Morons are making things difficult for us. They are giving the western powers an excuse to Invade or Blockade their/our Homeland as a breeding ground for terrorist's. Take away their Citizenship to avoid Blame.
