If they really wanted to cause havoc, they'd plan to do this shiat on a Monday right after a major US holiday.

Remember the good ol' days when those who were wagging the dog were at least somewhat sincere in trying to conceal it?

Out of boredom, I looked at Wikipedia's famous events by day to see what else they could be potentially marking. I found one of the most unexpected passages ever: "Russian President Boris Yeltsin fires his Prime Minister, Sergei Stepashin, and for the fourth time fires his entire cabinet. On the same day, Chris Jericho makes his WWF debut by interrupting The Rock with a millennium clock."

Well, at least they can say they did something.  Everyone criticized the lack of panic the last time around.

I wonder if the mockers will eat their words should something happen this week.

Wait, THE Bruce Dickinson?

Lollapalooza? Really? Does that have any relevance outside of the US? Might as well be the Wisconsin State Fair.

I think the concern for this is pretty focused overseas. And now that they say the target date is August 7th means that it probably wasn't Lollapalooza at all.
 
2013-08-06 01:30:54 AM
I'm expecting a package from UPS that day and would appreciate it if everybody kept their shenanigans to a minimum.

Thank you.

Wow, it's a good thing congress didn't take away the NSA's infinite meta-info gathe.ring ability two weeks ago.

Now go back to living in fear like a good little sheep

Al-Qaida threat led to Lollapalooza 2013 changes

People still go to Lollapalooza?


MaudlinMutantMollusk: But... but... WHAT COLOR IS IT?


My thought, too. We seem to be creeping back to the colored threat chart days. Though after BENGHAZIGATEGARRBLLL!!!!! I'm not sure what choice the State Department had.

I see what you did there :-)

What did August 7 ever do to incur the wrath of jihad? Go home al Qaida, you're trying to blow up calendar dates.
 
2013-08-06 01:47:13 AM
Don't you all see!?  The colored threat alert was discontinued as to allow the NSA to use unobtanium to mesh all the colors into the PRISM project.  Which in turn, allows us to disover ominous, unspecified threats such as these.

/study it out

Nothing is going to happen. Fear mongers in power just flapping their lips to justify putting the boot down on Americans.

Can't we just trade them A-Rod and be done with it?   Seems like a win-win to me.

You mean before the Clinton impeachment bombings in October 1998?

That's been a few years.

I was thinking more about pre-Reagan.

Or it could be August 8, anniversary of the Iraqi occupation of Kuwait, the 8888 uprising in Burma, the kidnapping of South Korean President Kim Dae-Jung, the Great Train Robbery and, among many others, a famous photograph taken of a London zebra crossing.

OR it could be August 9, anniversary of Richard Nixon's resignation, the second atomic bombing of Japan, the arrest of 21 terrorists in a plot to hijack a trans-Atlantic flight, the arrest of Mahatma Ghandi, and perhaps most importantly (among many others), the debut of Smoky the Bear.

OR it could be August 10...

You get where I'm going with this?

I said it in the last thread, I'll say it again:

I work in a US Embassy so I'm getting a kick...

Al Qaeda loves to make threats at the end of Ramadan.  It happens every year.  It happened in Iraq while I was there, and nothing ever happened.  This year, there was just a lot more "chatter" (you can read that as the basement dwellers of the terrorist world, taking to the forums to rile up Western hatred).  While I certainly don't want anything bad to happen, I also don't think anything will.

You know what else isn't going to happen?  This non-event being used to leverage more "security in place of freedom" on American citizens.  I think it's pretty obvious Americans are fed up the post-9/11 security apparatus, and would not take well to more of that.  And why would the powers that be do that anyway?  What gain do they stand to make?  It's certainly not financial, and in my experience in politics, that's the only reason any politician does anything.

I know right????

Me and the missus were sitting on the couch watching the wrassling action on our brand new 19 colour tv. Cheetos for me, Hickory Sticks for her. Washed it all down with some with some Stone Cold. Hey, you gotta break out the good stuff once in awhile, right?

We were pretty stressed out, hearing about Yeltsin fired his cabinet again during a commercial break. I didn't want to go and turn the a hundred times, but the ole ball and chain insisted on seeing watching the news on CNN. She thought it made us more "cultured" if we knew what was going on in the world.

So we flip it back to the wrasslin, just it to see this Kid nail the Rock.


WTF??? No one does that to the Rock!!!

So we were both pretty shocked at what a wild day it was. First Yeltsin, then this???

SO I says to her "Babe, do you SMEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL..."

Before I knew it, she was on my lap riding me like I was a John Deere riding mower.

What a night.

You're all wrong. Its based on the August 5th, 1975 AIA building hostage crisis, when a bunch of radical Japanese terrorists took the U.S. Consul and the Swedish ambassador hostage in Malaysia and demanded a flight to Libya.

Wow. Terrorists were more cosmopolitan in those days, I guess.

I don't know if you buy into the whole "false flag" idea, now would be a pretty good time to remind Americans of how much they need their government babysitters.

The last day of Ramadan in a few places is August 7, Eid is the 8th...however most of the world Muslims are celebrating Eid Friday or Saturday so the last day of Ramadan is Thursday or Friday for them

Eid is kind of a big deal. It's like Christmas.

If a group really wants to hurt people in a Muslim country, why would they strike then when people are off? Why would they strike during a fast at all? If they're Muslim, it's kind of a guaranteed ticket to hell.

That was August 6th.  It's my birthday and to celebrate I like blow up a few sushi rolls with M-80s.
