Gingrich Warns That ISIS May Attack U.S. With Nukes

ISIS is trying to acquire nuclear weapons so it can launch a major assault on the United States, according to Newt Gingrich.

The Hill reported that the Republican, who was the speaker of the House in the 1980s, declared Monday on the Fox Business Network: “We live in a world surrounded by people who want to kill us. There is a Islamist movement which would like to impose Islam on us, either by having us convert or having us submit.”

Gingrich warned that “if they acquire a nuclear weapon, we are going to lose a city.” He told “Mornings With Maria” host Maria Bartiromo: “This is a really serious problem in the long run for the survival of our civilization. We had better adjust to this new reality or we are going to suffer tremendous casualties. That’s how serious this problem is.”

The former Georgia congressman said he agrees with Republican presidential candidates and governors who have called on the Obama administration to cancel its plan to invite 10,000 displaced Syrians into the United States in 2016.

“We currently have no intelligence that allows us with any sense of comfort to be able to vet which of the Syrian refugees are legitimate and which of them are purveyors of radicalism,” Gingrich said. “Remember, it only took eight people to pull off this massacre.” He was referring to the recent attacks in Paris that killed 129 people.
