  • I am from Switzerland and I would say... maybe somewhat but at the moment the threat is pretty small. Switzerland is a neighboring country of France and very close to Belgium, so this certainly increases the danger. It's also a neighboring country of Germany, where ISIS might attack next. Switzerland is literally in the very center of Europe, so it's rather hard to overlook it... even if you're an incredibly dumb islamist terrorist.

    On the other hand, Switzerland has done many things right in the past (politically speaking) that have drastically decreased the risk for such terrorist attacks. First and foremost, Switzerland is a neutral country. Our government has never sent any troops to fight abroad and though it has officially stated its concerns about the war in Syria numerous times (from a humanitarian point of view), it hasn't officially picked any sides. Also, we're not part of the EU, and more importantly, we're also not a member of the NATO. We even joined the UN very, very late, in 2002, although the UN main quarter had been standing in Geneva long before that. So all in all, we gave people in the middle east or north Africa very little reason to hate us for.
    Secondly, Switzerland has done a MUCH better job at integrating foreigners than most other western European countries (especially France, England and Belgium, which all did a really crappy job). We don't have any suburb ghettos where muslims just sort of "vegetate" in frustration and bitterness and growl over their joblessness and lack of life perspective like in Paris or Brussels. The employment rate is very high and the mix of nationalities too. So if you're a foreigner in Switzerland, you probably have at least some Swiss neighbors. And even if you don't, chances are you won't have any neighbor from the same region. You might be from Libya but your neighbors would be from Spain and England and Estonia. The society is structured in a way that foreigners are forced to interact with the locals, which helps them adapt and assimilate. Plus, we also don't have any real poverty, which usually functions as a catalyzer for radicalization.
    Also, Switzerland has never had any colonies anywhere, hence we don't get as many immigrants from North Africa as France or Belgium do for instance.

    And finally, we also don't really have any particularly famous landmarks that would attract large crowds of people. We've got the Alps, but they're vast and a terrorist wouldn't know where to strike ;-).

  • No. UK; and I feel that ISIS is a critically weakened non-entity, whose leaders simply try to put on a front to make out that they're far bigger than they actually are by announcing "yes, this person carried out this attack in our name, and was secretly one of our operatives!" every time any person in the world who happens to be Muslim (i. r. o 25% of the world's population) carries out any attack which could be considered an 'act of terror', even when they have no links to IS at all. A fitting analogy would be if the KKK were to start loudly claiming responsibility for each and every attack which could be considered an 'act of terror', carried out by any person in the world who happened to be a White Christian (only 7% of the world population)- attacks like those carried out by the Planned Parenthood Shooter, or the Holocaust Museum Shooter, the Tucson Mall Shooter, the Charleston AME Church Shooter, the Texas Baptist Church Shooter, the Knoxville Church Shooter, the Sikh Temple Shooter, the Aurora Theater Shooter, the Columbine Shooters, the Las Vegas Cop Killers, the Sandy Hook Shooter, the Oslo Norway Mass Shooter, the Killer of Dr. Barnett Slepian, the Killer of Dr. David Gunn, the Killer of Dr. John Britton, the Killer of Dr. George Tiller, the guy who attempted to assassinate Donald Trump, etc, etc. If the KKK had come out and claimed responsibility for all of these attacks, wouldn't they be considered a bigger threat than IS? "I say I did it" doesn't mean that IS actually did.

  • No. They are far behind the USA militarily, thus why they resort to guerrilla warfare. It's an effective strategy to bite and nip at the heels of the USA but it won't get them any sympathy or bring them victory. All that they can hope to accomplish is to desensitize the US public enough, that eventually citizens won't argue with government and try to prevent conflict. In that event they provoke a large scale war which could lead to solidarity in the region to fight off outside invaders and bring people to their cause, but ultimately it would lead to their doom because we could steamroll the entire region and ethnically cleanse the shit out of it if we were so inclined to do so. Most US citizens are peaceful until they're continuously lead to believe they are facing subhuman servile scum... Just look at WWII. Most countries complain that we got involved too late, and that we should have helped out earlier, but once we were pushed too far the entire world changed... Don't poke a sleeping lion...

  • In Ireland we are neutral so never send troops but that is to say nothing could ever happen - No in the sense I think there are countries who face a far greater threat - On the other hand we could be a soft target - There was something planned for our game with Belgium in the Euro soccer championship but I believe Belgium was the primary target. All in all, you never know,

  • No, but i'm severely concerned about their attempts to ruin humanity as a whole, before this all started most humans were tolerant and accepted, and you can see it on social media, there's a distinct divide between people who still think like that, and others who've become more isolationist and more "far right wing" and a lot of this is to do with how we've handled everything so far, but it can also be stopped by us too. i recently heard of a story about a Polish family from Plymouth in the UK who had a right wing extremist attack on their property, they lost their shed, but a local gardening company replaced it for them completely free of cost (it was something like £1000), as a way to show that they're welcome in this country, so yes ISIS may be a minor threat, the main threat to our countries is now ourselves in my opinion, and i hope, for all our sakes, we sort this out, otherwise we could see the unthinkable starting to happen.

    • @Averageusername
      I think you're smoking that ignorance is bliss shit, but I'm in no position to judge your D. O. C! The question is 'are they a threat to your country?' Not 'are you scared of them?' I'm not scared, I know the odds are really pretty good I won't get caught up in a terror attack in the city in which I live, but a terrorist attack along the lines of what happened in Paris is a possibility here, or a car bomb, or suicide bombers or the subway like in London a few years back. So they are a threat to people living here, in this country, they are a threat to this country. I don't see what's so difficult about that! lol
