Posted on 06/06/2008 2:42:58 PM PDT by harwood
This is alarming. There has been a lot of talk on various jihadi forums regarding a nuclear strike by AQ.
(Excerpt) Read more at 18.104.22.168 ...
Not until Barack and Michelle are safely tucked away in the White House.
They would have a hard time getting it up.
Even if they could, there’s no way they’d attack before the election. It might hurt Obama’s chances.
Yea, what else is new?
“al-Queda Strike on U.S. Nearing?”
Well it IS an election year.
I couldn’t read anything, what did it say?
Yes, the timing is all based around the code word which will be simultaneously broadcast worldwide. The code word is “WHITEY” and will be uttered by their highest level sleeper agent .. (mischeveous grin)
Rumors are rumors are rumors. Funny that people seem so obsessed w/ them now.
I’ll say the same thing I said about the “news” of a possible Israeli strike on Iran: Yawn.
No doubt this will drive up gas prices another 25 cents.
“I couldnt read anything, what did it say?”
“Allah is Great. Let us strike brothers and sisters because the infidel, Bush will be out of office. Rejoice! Our Islamic brother, Obama will now head the Great Satan in November and must assist him.”
My arabic is rusty..
You know, it may be fun to sign up on these forums and make them worship Obama.
My arabic is a little better.
If it happened - and note I said “if” - there would not be a single mosque left in the western hemisphere.
And I’m inclined to think that a few Freepers would be involved..
These people cannot stand Obama. He is nothing more to them than another “servant of the Zionists”.
AQ has been defeated in a profound way. They have been saying for 7 years how they were going to get us here, in Afgan, Iraq, etc. and they have been crushed. They have lost almost all credibility, so that chatter about nukes is unsurprising.
Some intelligence insiders say it is possible that some terror cells may have inoperable Russian warheads. However, it seems likely that if they had working warheads, they would have used them by now. It doesn’t make sense to “hold back” weapons while the odds of detection increase over time.
Bombs - feh. I’m a Mariners fan. I know all about bombs.
It true ——
I hope it marks the end of the entire middle east Muslim world as we know it....
This bull squat of hiding behind “terrorists” who carry no national flag -— has to end..
The nations of the middle east are RESPONSIBLE and should suffer the consequences for not controlling their lunatics.
“al-Queda Strike on U.S. Nearing?”
I hope not, I think McCain will beat him in November.
Yes, I thought they would hit us in 2004.
OPINION: AQ has been losing at home and abroad with very little media coverage on this fact.
The jihadis use the internet for communications/support/propaganda/recruiting/financing/training/online terrorist courses, etc.
The truth is the jihadis want to convert us to Islam/harm us/kill us — depends on which jihad site/jihad supporting site one looks at.
So the questions to ask are:
Can they kill us?
Do they have the means to do so now?
Will they kill more of us here and abroad?
How will they do it?
Will it continue to be jihadis who are “mentally ill,” “lone jihadis” trained on the internet, “sudden jihadis” who acted in the heat of the moment, “radical extremists” recruited by “extremist literature,” etc, ad nauseum?
Yes the jihadis hate us.
Yes, they would attack if they could.
Time will tell.
mccant beating the messiah?
there’s a snowball for ya’
If these tools are competent enough to design websites, why aren’t they smart enough to understand that it would mean “Bye Bye Mecca”?
Because it wouldn’t, that’s why.
The tape referenced in this thread has been getting a lot of attention:
“Bring it On!”
ON THE INTERNET:
Whether it happens in the near future or distant future, courtesy of AQ (a.k.a. 'The Pig Suckers') or some other group, it's likely to happen. There was an episode of the McLaughlin Group (not that I'm a JM viewer anymore) about ten years back; all the conservatives present put the likelihood of nuclear terrorism against the US in the 90%+ range (IIRC), and all of the 'feel-good-liberals' put the likelihood close to zero. As usual, the 'iberals' were completely delusional. Bottom line: it's more difficult to protect a country this size than it is to sneak in a nuclear device, just once. Especially when the federal government is unlikely to say anything, if they stop an attempt at nuclear terrorism (or two, or three, or)...
Didn't know there were any left....everyone I know goes to Safeco Field to watch the lezzies get it.....aaah, rollin'.
To the OP, you do realize that link is to a jihadi site? Never go to those places unless you’re running an anonymous IP, they can track you.
watch the way the nuclear cloud moves,
and drive perpendicular.
Translation: “It’s so much fun to blow things up that we’d better do it now, while Bush is still in office. Wouldn’t want it to signal displeasure with our brother Barack.”
LoL, I think...
Thanks spectre for your feedback.
I never play on the internet.
Islam doesn't believe in world powers. They could care less who is in the White House or running any country. Everyone is an infidel who does not bow down to Islam. They even kill leaders in muslim countries just because they don't subscribe to Sharia law.
The warheads also have a SERIOUS "Best if used by..." date. They need periodic maintenance.
Last week there was posted a gloating picture of DC having been nuked.
My reponse post was that we are pefectly capable of writing Fantasy as well, and I outlined some scenarios of devastion in the Mideast.
Allow me to add to those:
"Few events in History raised so much worldwide condemnation as the post-Washington DC blast "Mosque Massacres", when two hundred million American Gun Owners simultanteously lost their tempers. The death toll will never be fully known, as Operating Engineers and Construction Workers added their heavy equipment to the demolitions and mass burials."
We can write that stuff too. Of course, it's just fiction. Just like them nuking DC.
If they wish to make it reality, than so be it.
I don't know. AQ does tend to do what they've done before, especially if it worked. They hit Spain just weeks before their election and definitely changed the outcome of the election giving power to the doves instead of the hawks. Then they did it again in the U.K. and they got rid of Tony Blair.
They may think that a strike on the U.S. right before the election will work on us too. And they might be right. We Americans have a short attention span, and there will be a cry of blame on us, for having taken the fight to them. Obama will leverage the "chickens coming home to roost" angle and could sweep into office in a landslide.
I do expect another attack, just before the election. What scares me is that it might work.
And Im inclined to think that a few Freepers would be involved..
Count me IN(FIDEL)
Thanks for bringing those links here. Some need their minds opened to the very real dangers we could, and do, face.
False bravado is just what it is. Knowledge and awareness are preferable.
Read Bill Roggio’s “The Long War Journal.” We captured 4 top Iranian S/F guys including a financier this week alone. Things are getting interesting.
Also, Wretchard posted a story from Spengler about the unrest in Iran (that is a year old)—like major unemployment and huge inflation.
Maybe things are playing out in slow mo?
You’re welcome RR.
At this time though, IN MY OPINION, this is just more of the jihad propaganda dump.
Anyway, my longer opinion (see above) still stands.
