Al Qaeda Calls for Massive Forest Fires in Montana - ABC News

Remember when that came out? Anyone notice the insanely busy fire season we're having out West (not just Montana)? My sister in law is being evacuated ahead of a large range fire here in UT as we speak...

So are we "under attack" or what?

Well, they've said the big one in Colorado was started by lightning and have even pinpointed the tree that was hit, I don't think al Qaeda's quite reached that level of sophistication.


I will however admit to being a bit scared that so many apparently take the Kardashians seriously

AQ is playing blackbeard down in Somalia about now. The only ones terrorizing the citizens of the US right now are our own government it appears from shake downs at airports to drones buzzing overhead.

I read that mass transit is the next item the terrorists will be going after. And I just read that one today as the House passed a bill on TSA authority.

House bill extends TSA intel sharing to mass transit - FederalNewsRadio.com
Also, when U.S. Special Forces raided Osama Bin Laden's compound last year, intelligence gathered revealed the next attack was intended for mass transit.

I'm getting a bit sick of our government saying terrorists will attack this or terrorists will attack that, and lately I don't trust the feds any more than the terrorists.

It's getting to be impossible to know what's what anymore... and that's probably by design.

Well when there is a terrorist attack like Ft. Hood we are told it isn't one by the government. AQ is pretty fractured up nowdays after getting run out of afghan and iraq. Holing up in the sheetholes in pakistan or in africa if they made it there.

Remember, the goal of terrorism is to strike fear in the hearts of civilians. Violent attacks on civilians intended to create fear.

And it's worked. Our government is going gangbusters to get eyes and ears into every facet of America so they can watch and wait and be ready for the next terroristic attack.

The terrorists won. And they don't even have to have another attack; just talk about one or leave some plans lying around. That's enough to invoke the fear and the need for tighter security.

The US lost the War on Terror the day the Patriot Act was signed.

Your exactly right. We will likely be told if there was going to be one, not to worry by our own Government.

The way the world is going these days, and people more crazy then ever, whether it be home grown, or from abroard, i do see another terrorist attack happening.


Not to the degree of 9/11 but i can see these idiots, trying something else. There not over us, they just hate us more then ever.
