SANAA, Yemen, Jan. 24 (UPI) -- A purported statement by al-Qaida in Yemen warned Saturday of a "major strike" soon in the United States.

The statement, distributed by the Yemeni Tagamoo Party for Reforms, said: "A major strike, a big event will take place in America soon," reminiscent of the Sept. 11 attacks.

I can't really get too worked up over something called the "Yemeni Tagamoo Party." Do the Yemeni Tagamoos have a mascot? Do they call themselves the Fighting Tagamoos?

I think you hit on something with the chocolate observation. An IRA terrorist would make a decision, hoist three sheets of liquid courage and go for it. These Wahhabist hyper-zealots talk their trash, eat chocolate (and honey, they're big on that), get contented and fall asleep. If it weren't for clubbing the night before and tiny bottles on the jets 9-11 might never have happened.
Just a theory.

Heavenly Father, we return to give You thanks that Your hand of protection continues to cover our beloved country. Let us not forget to daily thank You for Your goodness and mercy, for without You, O God, we would be desolate. Plans of attack are constantly being formulated against us, for the enemy is relentless, but give those who stand guard the greater knowledge, that no harm would befall. Thank You for sparing those in our national offices ... intercept all manner of harm ... keep us ever vigilant.

Merciful Father, strengthen those in authority over us, that they be ever mindful that their charge is the protection of the people. Thank You that our President remains focused despite the din of political attack. Unite our hearts in this effort, for if we fail, Heavenly Father, we will have squandered the freedom and liberty that You have granted this great nation. Let other nations look with longing upon this freedom and liberty ... may they rid their land of all manifestations of terrorism, for You would have us live in peace and safety. We covet Your presence, O God, that our lives would evidence Your dwelling among us. In the Name of Jesus, I pray, Amen ...

We can't keep calling it 'those posters who blew the end of the world as we know it with their countdown thread on 2-2-4' thread. :) That's it for us, over and out, thanks for starting a new thread, it's a hugh help, and please, start a new thread around 5000 posts or so, thanks, AM.

February 6, 2004 Report Faults Lax Controls on Screeners at Airports By PHILIP SHENON

WASHINGTON, Feb. 5 — An internal investigation at the Homeland Security Department has found that hiring of tens of thousands of airport screeners after the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, was so haphazard that many screeners were allowed to remain on duty at security checkpoints for weeks or months after it had been determined that they had serious criminal records.

The department's inspector general issued a report on the findings on Thursday. It said screeners remained on the payroll and retained their badges even after the findings that they had been convicted on charges as serious as manslaughter. The department often took weeks or months to discharge the screeners, the report found.

Security Firm Charged With Bribing Company Executives By RONALD SMOTHERS

Published: February 4, 2004

NEWARK, Feb. 3 - A Newark-based security company and its top executives have been charged with failing to do required background checks on employees who guarded area airports, utilities, bridges and other places vulnerable to terrorism, and with bribing officials to help them keep their contracts, Attorney General Peter C. Harvey said on Tuesday.

I'm going to SEC after I'm caught up on the OLD thread 2 to see if Haynes is a franchise.

Be back.

Well if that don't beat all get out. I was about to reply to your post #6833, hit preview, and wham, "this thread is locked". Huh? Figured Daleel, EOM and Co. finally came through (just joking folks).

Anyway, re #6833

Good snips. I should have continued with my thought. I do not believe that Russia is going to attack us in their upcoming exercises. I could be wrong, wouldn't be the first time, but I don't think that is their plan.

As I've said, I do not trust Putin, or his administration or his military officials. I do believe that Russian made weapons and materials of all sorts have been sold to others. I firmly believe that Putin will make promises and shake hands with Pres. Bush, Sec. Powell, Rumsfield, Rice, etc. and turn around and quietly sell whatever he can to the highest bidder with no thought to his "customers" being in the "axis of evil" or not.

In that regard, yes, I believe that Russia will attack us. But, at this time, I do not believe we will be attacked by Russia in an overt manner. Just my opinion. But, lets all keep the info coming. That's what this thread is about. It's an education, for all of us, in more ways than one. And I for one am always open for new info.

Is "The Bunker" taken? Or, judging from some of the jokes that went clanging around in the last thread, "The Bomb Shelter" might be more appropos :)

I think we have a much cosier relation with India than Pakistan. It seems like we have had a cautiously friendly relationship with Pakistan. But this may only be a matter of expediency in relation to the Afghan offensive as well as the fact they have been a known nuclear power for some time. With these new developments, I don't understand how we can have anything close to a neutral/friendly relationship with Pakistan. It truly appears they have sold us down the river.

I hope this is true. This is what I felt too. But now that I sit and think, I've never seen India mentioned in any coalition reports. Hopefully, they will babysit Pakistan for us.

Anyone else have any input on the India Pakistan relationship?

>>>I am not ready to assume that Russia is ready or willing to attack the USA


>>>>(snip)
the United States most likely will face ICBM threats from Russia, China, and North Korea, probably from Iran, and possibly from Iraq. The Russian threat, although significantly reduced, will continue to be the most robust and lethal, considerably more than China's, and orders of magnitude more than that potentially posed by the others, whose missiles are likely to be fewer in number, constrained to smaller payloads, and less reliable and accurate.

The new missile threats are far different from the Cold War threat, which involved accurate, survivable, and reliable missiles deployed in large numbers. By contrast, the new missile threats involve significantly less capable forces. Even so, they are threatening, but in different ways.

>>>>

(snip)

Russian entities last year continued to supply a variety of ballistic missile-related goods and technical know-how to countries such as Iran, India, China, and Libya. Indeed, the transfer of ballistic missile technology from Russia to Iran was substantial last year, and in our judgment will continue to accelerate Iranian efforts to develop new missiles and to become self-sufficient in production.


Russia also remained a key supplier for a variety of civilian Iranian nuclear programs, which could be used to advance its weapons programs as well.


Russian entities are a significant source of dual-use biotechnology, chemicals, production technology, and equipment for Iran. Russian biological and chemical expertise is sought by Iranians and others seeking information and training on BW and CW-agent production processes.

DECISION BRIEF No. 00-D 90

20 November 2000

Over the weekend, the Iraqi News Agency trumpeted the arrival in Baghdad of the latest planeload of foreign visitors to breach what little remains of the Clinton-Gore Administration's effort to contain Saddam Hussein. According to the state-controlled press, a Russian-built passenger plane brought "around 100 prominent Bulgarians, including members of parliament, former ministers, businessmen, doctors and university professors." The question is: Was there something or someone else whose presence aboard went unmentioned by Saddam's wire service?

Unfortunately, Bulgaria joins a growing list of nations -- including the likes of Russia, Libya and Syria -- to take advantage of the United States' understandable reluctance to enforce the no-fly zone against unarmed passenger flights. No one in the West knows for sure exactly what coming into (and, for that matter, out of) Iraq via these flights but, given many of the regimes in question, it strains credulity that there is nothing untoward going on.

This is especially true in light of the fact that it is obvious to Saddam Hussein, and virtually everybody else, that the Americans' will to resist his comeback is falling apart. Less well appreciated in the West, at least, is how dangerous the latest erosion -- to say nothing of the complete collapse of the containment strategy that it portends -- may prove to be.
