"And also some shit about terrorist ankylosaurs?"
1. Wait, what?
2. That's sounds hardcore.
Part of Jurassic World's setup for future films was that terrorists and militias and dictators and shit were buying dinosaurs and were planning to breed them to be next-gen Weapons of Mass Destruction. Or something like that.
People have been talking since Jurassic Park III was the new hotness about a JP movie with, like, cyborg-velociraptors duking it out with militias in the Middle East or something like that. I thought they'd abandoned that idea when Jurassic World was made, but I guess Fallen Kingdom is supposed to bridge the gap and get us there.

If you think about it the second book should have been about a Jurassic World
It was a big plot point that dinosaurs had gotten off the island WAY before the protagonists show up.
And that’s never addressed and the lysine deficiency is shit
Chricton just went “oh the dinosaurs that made it off island? Uh. They died. They all died. HEY! Who wants to go to another island?”
I don't think any self respecting military would want to use dinosaurs as weapons,they'd require many times the food and space needed for soldiers or military dogs and they're virtually uncontrollable.
Many people think that militaries would want to use bio-weapons which is what the justification in media usually is but most people fail to realize the impracticallity of it would drive off military buyers.
Plus, we’re already well on our way to military robots, and a robo-dog isn’t going to risk biting its handler the way a live raptor could.

They are not.
The opening scene mentions the volcano as something that is forthcoming and it's nature "doing a correction"
The ending scene literally "So we're all gonna have to learn to coexist with dinosaurs" and treats it as if "Welp, Dinos are here to stay".
The speech makes no goddamn sense if the events of the movie didn't happen between the two speeches. So either two speeches, or a speech that lasted days.
Ian gave his speech. Decided to take some days to enjoy the museums and such of DC.
And then he got word about all the mansion stuff and they wanted him to come back in. But he only packed one suit so he's like goddammit and got dressed and went back in.
It's the same hearing. Here's a transcript of the full speech:
Senator, with all due respect, God is not part of the equation. No. What I mean is that in the last century we've amassed a landmark technological power. And we've consistently proven ourselves incapable of handling that power. 80 years ago who could've predicted nuclear proliferation. But then there it was. And now we got genetic power. So, how long is it gonna take for that to spread around the globe and what's gonna be done with it? It ain't gonna stop with the de-extinction of the dinosaurs.
I'm talking about man-made cataclysmic change.
Changes like death. You don't know what it looks like until you're standing at the gates.
How many times do you have to see the evidence? How many times must the point be made? We're causing our own extinction. Too many red lines have been crossed. And our home has, in fundamental ways, been polluted by avarice and political megalomania. Genetic power has now been unleashed. And of course that's going to be catastrophic. This change was inevitable from the moment we brought the first dinosaur back from extinction. We've convinced ourselves that sudden change is something that happens outside the normal order of things, like a car crash, or that's beyond our control, like a fatal illness. We don't conceive of sudden, radical, irrational change as woven into the very fabric of existence. Yet I can assure you, it most assuredly is. And it's happening now. Humans and dinosaurs are now gonna be forced to coexist. These creatures were here before us, and if we're not careful, they're gonna be here after. We're gonna have to adjust to new threats that we cannot imagine. We've entered a new era. Welcome to Jurassic World.
The whole speech is Malcolm's alarmist prediction of what would happen, which we're given as we see it come true.
