Over the past month, the State Department has issued heightened travel advisories to several European countries due to the threat of terrorism.
Italy, France, Belgium, the United Kingdom, Spain and Germany have all been upgraded to Level 2 Advisories, which instructs visitors to “exercise increased caution” while visiting. The stated reason for the leveled-up advisories in all three countries is “terrorism.”
“Exercise increased caution in Italy due to terrorism,” says the warning for visitors to Italy.
“Terrorist groups continue plotting possible attacks in Italy. Terrorists may attack with little or no warning, targeting tourist locations, transportation hubs, markets/shopping malls, local government facilities, hotels, clubs, restaurants, places of worship, parks, major sporting and cultural events, educational institutions, airports, and other public areas,” the warning continues.
The warnings for the other five countries offer the same advice.
The State Department has four levels of travel advisories:
- Level 1: Exercise Normal Precautions
- Level 2: Exercise Increased Caution
- Level 3: Reconsider Travel
- Level 4: Do Not Travel
Related is the fact that all four of these countries have imported vast groups of economic migrants from North Africa and the Middle East under the guise of humanitarian refugeeism. This has led to outrage among the citizenry in most of these countries, which have roundly rejected the idea that they should allow their homelands to be overrun by foreign invaders. The elite leaders of these nations have ignored the will of the people.
In response, the Italian citizenry elected Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini, who promised to deport migrants back to their home nations, and has done just that. France is in the midst of seven weeks of uprisings against the established government, mainly controlled by the Brussels-based European Union. Protestors have turned violent as French President Emmanuel Macron has openly worried about a potential coup.
Before millions of migrants were sent to Europe, one could travel safely without the worry of terrorist attacks. That was part of the continent’s charm, and one of the things that separated it from less civilized parts of the world like the Middle East.
Since things were going so well, globalist leaders figured they would step in to screw it up, likely permanently.

Baghdad Bombings Could Give Biden Administration Excuse to Increase US Presence in Iraq
The first major Baghdad bombings in three years happen on Joe Biden’s first full day as president.
Two suicide bombings rocked a marketplace in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad on Thursday, killing at least 32 people and wounding over 100. As of now no one has claimed responsibility, although Iraqi military leaders suspect the Islamic State, the paramilitary group often referred to as “ISIS” in years past.
Major General Tahsin al-Khafaji said that the first suicide bomber shouted in the marketplace that he was not feeling well, and when a group of people drew near him, he detonated an explosive belt he was wearing. Not long after that, a second suicide bomber then detonated his own belt several feet away.
This was Baghdad’s first major bombing in three years, and interestingly enough it came on the first full day of Joe Biden’s presidency. Even the Associated Press pointed out that “many questioned the timing of the attack.”
“The US-led coalition recently ceased combat activities and is gradually drawing down its troop presence in Iraq,” the article reads.
The Jerusalem Post also writes that the bombings provide Biden with “an early opportunity to show US support for Iraq.”
“Biden has said that the US is ‘back’ and the world can expect the US to care again about foreign policy and work multilaterally to solve problems,” said the Post.
All this leads many to believe that the Biden administration will once again increase the US presence in Iraq, thereby dragging us deeper into a situation that the Trump administration had been eager to get out of.
This is not the first time that a Middle Eastern tragedy has coincided with a change of power. In March of 2017, two months after Donald Trump’s inauguration, the Assad government in Syria allegedly used chemical weapons against its own people, leading to international outcry and the Trump administration’s unilateral decision to launch an April 7 missile strike on the Syrian government’s Shayrat Airbase.
Bombings and attacks have also been known to happen shortly after the US announces commitments to scale back military operations.
Perhaps groups like the Islamic State feel emboldened by such announcements and power changes. In any case, the military-industrial complex often uses such attacks to justify never-ending involvement in the Middle East. As of now, however, it still remains to be seen what they will do as a result of Thursday’s bombings, if anything. Fingers crossed that it’s not much.
