THE NEW TERROR - LONDON AND BEYOND


With the train and bus bombings in London this past week, it is safe to say that the worldwide Jihad on the West by Al Qaeda and like-minded groups goes on... This is not news to us in the know, but may serve as a wake-up call to some of our more liberal countrymen. These people do not work in soundbites and political seasons. They work in terms of decades and centuries. Their war against us didn't start on September 11th or with the Embassy bombings in Kenya/Tanzania, or when the U.S. barracks were attacked in Beruit in the 80s. The war, in their mind, stretches back centuries... and will continue for centuries more, until there is a victor. It truly is US or THEM. Which side are you on?

Here is a recap of the London bombings and what it could mean for us over the next few months...

Still mass confusion over whether the bombings were the result of homicide bombers or Madrid 3/11 - style plants... Debka feels that the bombers were most definitely suicide bombers and that there were between 6 and 8 of them...

The bombing attacks on London’s Underground railway and a double-decker bus Thursday, July 7, were the work of a team of 6-8 terrorists wearing explosive vests.

This is the first conclusion drawn by DEBKA-Net-Weekly’s terror experts from the type and strength of the explosives used and they way the bombers, in three out of the four attacks, were able to deliberately spread the damage to secondary vehicles outside their primary targets.

The explosion on the trains at Kings Cross and Edgware Road stations- and the bomb that wrecked the bus at Tavistock Square - were also aimed at hitting passing trains and cars to maximize the casualty toll. To accomplish this, the bomber needed to watch out for moving vehicles and judge the exact moment for detonating the explosive with zero chances of surviving the blast.

However, London officials feel that the bombings were the work of devices with placed deliberately in specified locations with timing devices to ensure simultaneous explosions... Interesting to note that officials in London have revised their timeline of the bombings, now saying that the blasts on the trains took place within seconds of each other, and not minutes as earlier reported... hmmmm. For this reason, London remains on its highest alert status ever instituted...
BRITAIN’S terrorist alert has been raised to its highest-ever level because the London rush-hour bombers are alive and planning another attack, The Times has learnt.

Security services, military and police are on “severe specific” alert — the second highest status and higher than after the September 11 atrocities — after it emerged that the terrorists who killed as many as 70 people were not suicide bombers.

So, as London grapples with recovering from its worst attack since WWII, we are left wondering, what, if anything, will happen next? FoxNews is reporting today, that counter-terrorism expert, Juval Aviv, believes a massive terror attack will occur on U.S. soil in "90 days at the most"...
Do you believe another terrorist attack is likely on American soil?

I predict, based primarily on information that is floating in Europe and the Middle East, that an event is imminent and around the corner here in the United States. It could happen as soon as tomorrow, or it could happen in the next few months. Ninety days at the most.

What they’re going to do is hit six, seven or eight cities simultaneously to show sophistication and really hit the public. This time, which is the message of the day, it will not only be big cities. They’re going to try to hit rural America. They want to send a message to rural America: "You’re not protected. If you figured out that if you just move out of New York and move to Montana or to Pittsburgh, you’re not immune. We’re going [to] get you wherever we can and it’s easier there than in New York."

So... will the war return to our shores? WorldNetDaily seems to think so. Check out their article today entitled: "Al-Qaida nukes already in U.S.":
As London recovers from the latest deadly al-Qaida attack that killed at least 50, top U.S. government officials are contemplating what they consider to be an inevitable and much bigger assault on America – one likely to kill millions, destroy the economy and fundamentally alter the course of history, reports Joseph Farah's G2 Bulletin.

According to captured al-Qaida leaders and documents, the plan is called the "American Hiroshima" and involves the multiple detonation of nuclear weapons already smuggled into the U.S. over the Mexican border with the help of the MS-13 street gang and other organized crime groups.

The plans for the devastating nuclear attack on the U.S. have been under development for more than a decade. It is designed as a final deadly blow of defeat to the U.S., which is seen by al-Qaida and its allies as "the Great Satan."

[...]

The future plan, according to captured al-Qaida agents and documents, suggests the attacks will take place simultaneously in major cities throughout the country – including New York, Boston, Washington, Las Vegas, Miami, Chicago and Los Angeles.
