Gaia's Warriors

The environmental pseudo-religion so ably described by JR Dunn, not only has its apocalyptic doctrine, it also has its own military arm.  Lost in the coverage of our campaign against international Islamic terror, is that our home grown terrorists are comprised largely of animal rights activists, the Earth Liberation Front, and other similar groups.  According to the FBI, they present the most significant group of domestic terrorists we have to confront.

Some examples:
Daniel Andreas San Diego  - San Diego is wanted for his alleged involvement in the bombings of two corporate offices in California.  On August 28, 2003, two bombs exploded at the Chiron Corporation, located in Emeryville.  Then, on September 26, 2003, a single bomb strapped with nails exploded at the Shaklee Corporation, located in Pleasanton.  San Diego is a known animal rights activist with ties to animal rights groups.  He is known to be a very strict vegan, eating no meat or food containing animal products. ... He is known to possess a 9mm handgun.  SHOULD BE CONSIDERED ARMED AND DANGEROUS

Justin Franchi Solondz  - Solondz is wanted on multiple charges related to his alleged role in a domestic terrorism cell.  On May 21, 2001, the University of Washington, Center for Urban Horticulture, in Seattle, Washington, was destroyed by fire during the early morning hours.  At the same time, in Clatskanie, Oregon, several buildings and vehicles were also destroyed by fire.  Fire investigators determined that both fires were the result of arson by use of timed improvised incendiary devices.  Shortly thereafter, a communication was released stating that both fires were committed by members of the Earth Liberation Front (ELF).  The combined loss from these two arsons totaled over five million dollars.  SHOULD BE CONSIDERED ARMED AND DANGEROUS AND AN ESCAPE RISK.

Josephine Sunshine Overaker  - On January 19, 2006, a federal grand jury in Eugene, Oregon, indicted Josephine Sunshine Overaker on multiple charges related to her alleged role in a domestic terrorism cell.  Overaker was charged with two conspiracy violations related to seventeen incidents, five counts of arson, one count of attempted arson, and one count of destruction of an energy facility.  ...Many of the crimes she is accused of participating in were claimed to be committed by the Earth Liberation Front (ELF) or the Animal Liberation Front (ALF).  SHOULD BE CONSIDERED AN ESCAPE RISK.

Joseph Mahmoud Dibee  - ...a federal grand jury in Eugene, Oregon, indicted Joseph Mahmoud Dibee on multiple charges related to his alleged role in a domestic terrorism cell.  Dibee was charged with two conspiracy violations related to seventeen incidents and one count of arson. ... Many of the crimes he is accused of participating in were claimed to be committed by the Earth Liberation Front (ELF) or the Animal Liberation Front (ALF).  Dibee may have fled to Syria [emphasis added].  HE SHOULD BE CONSIDERED ARMED AND DANGEROUS.
Local and federal law enforcement are currently holding their own against Gaia's warriors, but as Dunn notes, order can be maintained only so long as the political power does not lean towards the Greens favor.
