I managed to see Nino Fan's post before the other thread was pulled.

Canada had a similar event?

Unsettling news. I just got home from the Fry's grocery store here in Gilbert, AZ. IIRC, Fry's is part of Kroger, and I was also in a Safeway store earlier today. I'm buying a three-day supply of groceries tomorrow, just in case Iranian agents have something planned for 8/22, which will fall on Monday night here in Arizona. It's highly unlikely that anything will happen here on 8/21 or 8/22, but I usually buy groceries during the weekend, so tomorrow I'm buying a 3-day supply.

What an odd conincidence that a bomb was also found in Canada, and right after home-grown British terrorists tried to blow up a few jetliners over the Atlantic. I'm sure the FBI will say none of this is connected.

Pretty scary stuff. Notice they said it wouldn't have gone off on its own. Makes me wonder about those guys buying cell phones they were looking for in Tucson... (I know, I know, it's just them buying to resell.. nothing to worry about. )

And Tucson was one of the places with the unusual cell phone buying recently.

Having lived in Tucson for four years...I can attest to the fact that there are a number of certified "nuts" in the city and the story doesn't surprise me. From the environmental nuts to the Vietnam war Vets...there seems to be a magnet to draw these guys to the city and they seem to all fit in...and carry on their agenda.

The problem with the liberals' reselling theory is there's no place anywhere near Tucson where someone could resell a cell phone for much more than the price at Wal-Mart or another deep discounter. The only possible exception I can think of is perhaps Mexico, if there's some kind of heavy tax on disposable cell phones down there. But nobody is going to drive from LA to Tucson and back to resell cell phones, when they can buy them for almost the same price as the Tucscon price at a store in Ontario, CA or Palmdale, CA, or another inland CA city.

They will send National Guards to the airports without clips and they'll send cops to protect the mosques.

I heard the guard carries ammo for their hand guns but not for rifles when they're on airport duty. Is that incorrect?

Bombings happen more often than folks want to consider. Arson and bombs happen more than once a week.

Check the FBI bombing statistics - in 1998 (last year I could easily find) Actual - 1,225 explosive events and 427 incendiary events. Attempted -- 504 explosive, 185 incendiary.


As a DR guy it is something I check for clients when doing a site risk analysis.

You can check your local PD or fire Dept for events in your area.

Whoops - didnt see there was a more complete thread.

A fake bomb as it turned out - somebody used modelling clay so the thing would even look real on an XRay. Destroyed it finally with a high-pressure water blast.

Interesting...well post #16 certainly fits your "Tucscon nuts" theory to the letter. Only a nut case would make a fake bomb, and only a truly crazy person or a terrorist builds a real bomb.

I'm confused. Is there a link saying that the Tucson incident was fake? The TV news report said that the police used explosives to disable the bomb three times and they showed them doing it. Then I did a search and found the story that was referred to earlier in the thread by onyx and defenderSD about something similar happening at a Safeway in Canada and that one did mention a water cannon being used on a fake bomb.

This article answers my question: http://www.azstarnet.com/metro/142932

That is weird that it would happen at two Safeways in a matter of ten days. Are these dry runs, too?

Thanks, but I didn't compile this list. I got it from the Arizona Daily Star.

There's a paper that isn't controlled by libs in America (with the exception of the paper in Elko, NV, or the IBD)?

I haven't been paying too much attention to Iraq and terrorism lately ... (needed a break). Why is there so much concern about August 22nd? Why is the 22nd significant?

Me thinks the LIBERAL media is having great difficulty getting its act together. Reality and fantasy is a blur for them. They are becoming more and more undependable to print facts.

Not.

The AZ Daily Star is very unaffectionately known by conservatives as the AZ Red Star.

Phoenix got the Insane Asylum years ago and Tucson got the University. Its a draw!

22 August is the date on which Iran promised to respond to UN demands that it shut down it's nuclear program.

It is also, this year, the day on which the Mohammedan commemoration of Mohammed's purported 'night flight' to 'the farthest mosque' and heaven. (The date on the civil calendar varies from year to year since the Mohammedans use an uncorrected lunar calendar.)

It is speculated that the 'response' will be something other than diplomatic, like an attack or a nuclear test.

Thanks.

It could be interesting. We'll have to wait and see.
