You're certainly welcome and THANK YOU nwctwx for bringing us to Thread 23 and doing such a great job with all of the links and Google keywords. Impressive work you've done for us!
CONGRATS TO ALL FOR YET ANOTHER SECTION AND THE BEST OG GOD'S SAFETY, PROVISION, PROTECTION, JOY, PEACE, COMFORT, FOOD, INTIMACY WITH LOVED ONES AND GOD TO ONE AND ALL ON THE TM THREAD.
What's the status on the vulnerability on the 27th?
Any substance to it or the usual rumor level stuff?
Southeast Asia is going to be the hotspot for terrorism in the coming year. Pakistan is putting effective pressure on groups and forcing them out. The Philippines is doing the same albeit not with quite as much success.
Bangladesh is finding themselves being over run by Al Qaeda. While Thailand is also dealing with a growing Islamic menace. Now is the time to be offering help to these countries before the bastards have a chance to get settled in.
Just got back from the airport, glad I'm home.
Great job nw!

Khomeini and Sistani fans write in to Jihad Watch
Recent posts about Khomeini and Sistani seem to have aroused the ire of the tiny minority of extremists, who have written in (from the United States) with their usual moderation and tolerance:
HYPOCRITE! YOU MAKE A FUSS BECAUSE MUSLIMS REMEMBER KHOMEINI YET YOU DONT CRITISIZE SOUTHERN WHITE NEO-CONFEDERATES WHO COMMEMORATE THE TRAITOR ROBERT E LEE! SHAME ON YOU!
Yeah, the world faces a serious neo-Confederate threat these days. Shame on me.
Listen you filthy swine! Christian Priests rape and abuse young boys because the Christian religious texts tell them too!
America would not DARE antagonise Grand Ayatollah Sistani. If the election is fixed by America and the American puppets win the election ALL HELL WILL BREAK LOSE! And you know what will happen to Israel in the ensuing chaos! So watch your tongue when referring to Grand Ayatollah Sistani. And YES KAFFIR LIKE YOURSELF ARE UNCLEAN. YOU FILTYHY FORNICATING, ADULTEROUS, HOMOSEXUAL, CHILD MOLESTING, RAPING, MURERDING PIG EATING, ALCHOHOL DRINKING, DRUG USING, BLASHPEMING, PAGAN (CHRISTIANS WORRHIP 3 GODS THE FATHER THE SON AND THE HOLE SPIRIT), HERETICAL, BEASTIAL, DONT EVEN WASH YOUR GENITALS AND BACKSIDE AFTER YOU P**S AND S**T, KAFFIR!
I added in the asterisks. Meanwhile, I'd like to see this writer come up with those "Christian religious texts" mandating the rape of young boys. I won't be holding my breath.

Something is up. What or where I haven't a clue. But there is noise. I know this is like saying there will be an earthquake somewhere in the world.

THE CHRISTMAS LINKS PAGE
Merry Christmas to my TM "family". May you all be blessed with health, peace and the fellowship of loved ones during this holiday season.
I feel tweaked up on my sensors.
What do you base your impressions on?
And if 10 is attack is certain within 24 hours--how would you rate your sensing?
... and a MERRY CHRISTMAS (yes, I'm saying MERRY CHRISTMAS, not the politically correct HAPPY HOLIDAYS) to all!
I know that this was put on TM yesterday, but WND has the full story now:
Al-Qaida prepares for major attack over Christmas: has scouted civilian targets in Europe

Al-Qaida prepares for major attack over Christmas
Intelligence sources say terror group has scouted civilian targets in Europe
Posted: December 24, 2004

Editor's note: WorldNetDaily brings readers exclusive, up-to-the-minute global intelligence news and analysis from Geostrategy-Direct, a new online newsletter edited by veteran journalist Robert Morton and featuring the "Backgrounder" column compiled by Bill Gertz. Geostrategy-Direct is a subscription-based service produced by the publishers of WorldTribune.com, a free news service frequently linked by the editors of WorldNetDaily.
Several agencies have intercepted electronic communications pointing to al-Qaida's plans to launch a major attack over the next two weeks, Western intelligence sources said, according to Geostrategy-Direct, the global intelligence news service.
The sources said al-Qaida was planning to use Islamic subcontractors to carry out major attacks against civilian targets in Europe.
Al-Qaida has been gathering assets in several European Union countries and Russia over the past two months, the sources said. At this point the intelligence agencies have determined that al-Qaida has been scouting potential targets and has already called supporters to initiate strikes.
Some targets in Western Europe include NATO headquarters in Brussels, a railroad hub packed with holiday travelers and Istanbul, Turkey. The sources said al-Qaida cells in Europe are flushed with operatives that fought the U.S.-led coalition in Iraq.
Other leading al-Qaida targets include Moscow or St. Petersburg. Federal Security Service Director Nikolai Patrushev said Russia's domestic intelligence agency has received reports of a planned major terrorist attack in St. Petersburg.
Patrushev said unidentified people were seen taking video footage of children's hospitals and clinics. He said terrorists would be most likely to strike around the Christmas and New Year's holidays.
European countries have been working overtime to uncover al-Qaida network cells. Patrushev reported that an al-Qaida cell was discovered in the North Caucasus and a senior operative was being interrogated.

Just thinking about you all, love and miss you guys. Have a nice holiday.
Thanks nwctwx! Excellent.
The thread looks awesome. I love the new Statue of Liberty graphic -- thanks for the new thread. I can't believe we're on #23.
Ex-Soldier will be offline until approximately the 28th. He'll be out of contact until then. Praying he has a safe trip and we don't have to use the contact list to reach him before he returns!
Also hoping everyone in the various "snow zones" stays warm and safe!
