    Hmmm. Perhaps Mr Bin Liner isn't so irrelevant after all.

    Well, at least we know we're prepared for anything right? I mean, look at how well the government handled Katrina. Oh...

    Yeah, I'm scared too.

    Well it's 8pm on the Best Coast, and I haven't heard of any attacks yet...

    I knew this was coming. Don;t think that whatever they do will be predictable. This is really creepy.

    I don't think the "tomorrow LA" was literal.

    'Tomorrow L.A.' might not have been literal, but how else would you read this passage?
    :confused:

    "Yesterday London and Madrid" clearly wasn't a literal "yesterday", so IMO neither should "tomorrow" be taken literally. The speaker simply means "in the future".

    Haha! It's September 12 and there were no attacks. Loser terrorists can't even tell time.

    I guess the media added the first part. The quoted terrorist never said anything about the fourth anniversary.

    Well, I haven't seen the actual tape, so I don't know anything about the speaker actually SAYING that the attacks were slated to be on 9/11/05. From what I read in the quoted article above, that's a writers extrapolation of what was said, which I tend to not believe to be accurate.. generally it's more for "punch effect" of the article.

    It seems not. Anyway, as far as they're concerned, it's Shaban 8 1426.

    Thanks for the reminder Skunk, my birthday is 20 Sha'aban. I'll be 26 lunar years old.
    </complete aside>

    Which means Ramadan is just around the corner. May mean things quiet down for 30 days.

    Why Melbourne? It's a nice city, but not exactly a global financial center.

    That way they get a load of Italians as well as Aussies. Fiendishly clever, these Al Qaeda chaps.

    I hope you are joking by asking this but I fear you are not.

    What Bin Laden does from now on is less relevant from what he accomplished in the past but to think he's irrelevant is ludicrous. His real legacy will become apparent well after his death when his ideas are sold as a belief system. Not that they aren't already but I predict that Bin-Ladenism will be a pretty popular sect of Islam in twenty years time.

    I was but musing, in reflections tinged with exquisite irony.

    Why would they? Just because we could be attacked again? Yeah, that'll never happen. :rolleyes: Then Bush can say there were no warning signs and put the blame on the local gov.

    And I think they meant the warning was released to coincide with the 4th year anniversary, not the actual act itself. We won't know when that's going to happen. I hope we're prepared (he said, knowing we aren't anywhere close to being prepared).

    Is there any situation where that phrase wouldn't apply?

    What is our current threat level, and how low has it ever gotten?

    Umm. Has half of LA just been blacked out? Might this be relevant?

    It's Yellow, and that is the lowest.

    I think that system is no longer being used now since Bush doesn't have to be elected...so there is no need to scare the public anymore. :rolleyes:
