That is foreign propaganda. (It is retty obvious the article was not even written in English, but translated.

The photos accompanying each state are over the top. Ohio is crawling with masked terrorists!!! Alabama is patrolled by the military!!! In California, be sure not to step on the bodies!!!

Propaganda with an anti-American agenda.

Propaganda? You're giving it too much credit. I did a quick WHOIS search and the domain is owned by some dude with a Cambodian name. My guess is a guy who watches too many American movies trying to act like he knows something and grab a little ad revenue along the way.

It's kind of hilarious.

I think a spammer wrote the article. The scariest thing about this article is there are people with access to the internet who will probably believe it.

Oh, this is way overstated. I mean, I love to wander into the streets just as much as the next person, but we haven't had anyone kidnapped and killed for ransom in our neighborhood in at least two weeks...

I just wish the mighty city of Tennessee remains peaceful with its markets and safe from terrorists, though I fear entering the link.

Thread of the year!

Made my day all I read here.

"Missouri is a place for newly married couples to spend their time at. Those who come here to spend their holidays are kidnapped and killed by the criminals."

Oh snap, I'm glad I ran into this article...I was just starting to plan my honeymoon in romantic Missouri.
