    You can understand how they might want to cover their backs by reporting the slightest chatter after the apparent failings of 9/11 - but how seriously are we to take this?

    I make no judgement, but it's certainly in Bush's re-election interests. And al-Qaeda would like nothing better than to have Bush re-elected. He is their best ally and recruiting sergeant!

    They attacked on 9/11 and 3/11, so maybe this one was supposed to go down on 6/11? Or maybe it was just a coincidence, who knows? It's definitely serious, I don't doubt that Al Qaida wants to hit the U.S. hard after the war in Iraq, and they've proven that they're serious about it.

    Why don't we all go out to 7/11 for a Slurpee?

    Pressed_Rat Do you even lift, bruh?

    I am suspicious altogether. I find it kind of hard to believe we supposedly know of possible threats, but can't narrow it down any more than that as to what the attacks might involve or where they might occur. So I do wonder if the Bush administration is just playing up on pre-election scare tactics, or there truly is a threat. I think it's probably a little bit of both. Either way, something smells bad.

    I know some will disagree with me, but I think the US knows the specifics of an impending summer attack, and like the events of 9-11 these attacks will be allowed to take place to further advance the New World Order which is already well into play. This would also almost undoubtably cause Bush to win re-election. The sheep will crawl back out of the woodwork believing that Bush will somehow offer more protection than anyone else by gradually taking away more and more of our rights through things such as the "Patriot Act," which is indeed a guise for the New World Order.

    Or maybe they just don't want to release the details so the terrorists don't find out that we know exactly what they are up to and can change their attack plans accordingly.

    Damn it Moonlight, you feel it your bones? Where's my duct tape!? :D

    For what it's worth, my guess is that al-Qaeda's capabilities don't extend beyond one large scale isolated incident, somewhere in the world, every couple of years. At least, this fits the pattern we've seen for as long as al-Qaeda has been operating.

    That's just what they WANT you to think! The reason Bush has been able to get the US people to support his imperialist agenda and fight wars in foreign lands is because he's done such a good job of scaring everyone shitless! (What is duct tape, anyway?) It is so vanishingly unlikely that you will be involved in a terrorist attack on US soil that you really should not be concerned about it. How much more likely are you to be killed by a speeding car or a killed in a robbery by a crackhead? Many, many times more likely. Don't obey your television!

    "Why of course the people don't want war. Why should some poor slob on a
    farm want to risk his life in a war when the best he can get out of it
    is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally the common people
    don't want war neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in
    Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the
    country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to
    drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist
    dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no
    voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.
    That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked,
    and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the
    country to danger. It works the same in any country."
    --Hermann Goering at the Nuremberg Trials

    It's the same media controlled 'fright' technique.

    Just like the convervative media tends to show you that the African-American is responsible for most crime. (since the African-American population tends to vote Democrat). The alerts, the warning, and the rest of that "bushit", are just, like showmet said, propoganda techniques to keep the country in constant fear... showing Bush as the "saviour".

    And these techniques work. Look at what happened in Spain after the train...

    i have the same thought process as pressed-rat.

    its all conspiracy man. its all about getting a reelection. its all about instilling fear and hoping we will look for a leader. and i dont doubt that our government has its own hands in the attacks as well

    Matt, stop stealing my replies. [face with tounge hanging out]

    And there's nothing no one can do about it. I believe there will be some huge event that will kill a massive amount of people this summer.

    Can I go back to my childhood please?

    The funny thing is, all this happened without anyone bothering to tell the Department of Homeland Security. Tom Ridge wasn't informed of the alleged threat. It appears that the Bush people in charge of defending America are deliberately letting down their guard (if they ever even cared to defend America).

    So it looks like when the next 9/11 style attack comes along, once again the guys at the top will look like the blithering idiots that they are.

    Sunlion, I am assuming your an American here.....

    Please explain to me the 'thought process' that goes on with your signature?

    It appears you are 'opposed' to Bush and his policies. (that fine) but why do you have an ASCCI Cartoon depicting 'Us' getting behind what I presume is Bush and then homosexually sodomizing him?

    Is it because being erect and pushing into a mans anus is considered a 'victorious' state of being in the USA?
    "A Winner' is a man who like giving anal sex?

    Or is it because 'defeating Bush' would (in the most ideal logical conclusion) would be subjecting him to homosexual sex which he would dislike?

    Please explain this American obsession with homosexual rape and domination?
    Obviously I dont have to mention the connection here between the 'homosexual domination/humiliation pornography' made in the Iraqi prison by American soldiers.

    In anycase - I realise that the one 'giving it to Bush' is a homosexual (He must be in order to do it) but I wonder why the 'ultimate defeat' is being an unwilling homosexual?

    Sure. In the US, a popular slang saying is "fuck him." (or "fuck them" or "fuck you" etc.) It doesn't refer to sex or violence, it means, basically, "I disregard him completely, he does not matter." As a free bonus, it just so happens that Bush supporters regard homosexuality as a great evil, so it's just another way of insulting and offending Dubya-lovers. Ask me to get behind our president and I typically answer with the words "fuck him." If it helps in the delivery of the insult- and it does- a picture will underscore my attitude.

    Thanks for the replies guys. It was a real question and I think you gave real answers.
    I've also noticed this homosexual rape theme is very popular in american 'black culture' and 'rap' music.
    There seems an infatuation with male 'toughs' having another man as a 'bitch'
    (which im told is prison slang for a homosexual partner')

    To me this all related to the Iraqi prison abuse crimes where a common theme seemed to be homoerotic rape and humiliation.

    Disturbing stuff.
