(Telegraph)   Al Qaeda second in command plots terrorist attack at the World Cup. I think he's overestimating American viewership and whether or not people would notice that a bomb went off in South Africa   (telegraph.co.uk ) divider line

Also may be overestimating the average lifespan of an Al Qaeda no. 2.
 
2010-05-17 06:34:27 PM  
Al Qaeda sure is full of number 2s.

I thought we killed him

Right, subby, because, as we know, it is ALL about us.

Al Qaeda sure is an organization full of advancement opportunities. One week you're the stock boy, and forty #2s later, you're #2!

We've got through quite a few. It's no.1 who's the elusive (dead) one.

Thinking... bomb... south africa... soccer.

Nope. Not terrorized.
 
2010-05-17 07:01:57 PM  
As a note, the actual Al-Qaeda #2, Ayman al-Zawahiri, has ALWAYS been the #2. We've killed a lot of Al-Qaeda in Iraq #2s, and a lot of Taliban #2s, but we've never gotten the actual Al-Qaeda #2.

/hehe, poop
 
2010-05-17 07:02:35 PM  
Only European hooligans have the right to terrorize this world cup - it's tradition. So, sod off and blow yourself up someplace else, mate.

I think the question every good American should be asking is:

What the hell is soccer?

lol
 
2010-05-17 07:05:03 PM  
Its not all about America subby. Muslims hate everything, even themselves. They have been hating long before there even was an America.

Official Obama administration statement on this:

You appear to be asking "Who does Number Two... work for?"

And frankly... I have no idea. Cause I thought that guy died a few years back.

Only most popular sport in the world. Now go back, be a good American and finish your game of cornhole.

At least the players will be ok, they have alot of practice of diving on the ground which is almost like a duck and cover.

A bomb at the World Cup won't ruin Posh Spice any more than being Beckham's cumdumpster has.
 
2010-05-17 07:11:11 PM  
Why do we always hear from the the second, thirds, and fourths? Don't they have a #1?

Oh man. What a dumbass. That's Northern Africa.

Al Qaeda might be underestimating how pissed off the normally anti-american countries would be to such an attack. the World Cup is a MAJOR event for a lot of latino and islamic countries. this is about as stupid as a plan can get.

England will finish last in the group. USA USA USA!

On a related note, our chances at hosting 2018 have bombed as of last Sunday. Thanks, Mail on Sunday. Just when I think the Mail can't do any worse, they go and do this.

Huh.

A terrorist attack on the World Cup...

Yeah. That could be EXTREMELY bad for the USA. No sarcasm; I can see how that would be extremely bad for the USA. More than a billion people are likely to watch the World Cup, so if the attack came while a game was on - particularly between good teams, or popular teams - and the farktards who did it claimed it was in retaliation for the USA doing something, the people covering the explosion would spend WEEKS repeating "This was done because the USA is in Afghanistan" or some such shiate. Worldwide support for the USA could drop like a stone when foreign governments have to choose between the will of their people or good sense, and the USA loses support from foreign nations.

And no matter what the Republicans or Teabaggers think, the USA needs a LOT of foreign support to fight terrorism.

It should also be noted that of the World Cup tickets alloted to each country, the US was the first country to sell out there portion, with the Americans who couldn't nab one now trying to get friends in other nations to buy one for them.

/or it is just scalpers=P

I always used to wonder why Vlade Divac used to flop so much, then I watched some FIFA matches with my brother in law and realized he was hybridizing European football with U.S. basketball.
 
2010-05-17 08:39:19 PM  
Dear Al Quaeda,

by all means fark with soccer/football. Frankly it would be to our best interest if you did this as we have yet to figure out a way to get pretty much every single nation united in trying to exterminate you guys and this would do it.
