Al-Qaeda warns of 'spectacular attacks' on UK
Monday, August 17, 2009
London. In an astounding revelation, Al-Qaeda extremists have claimed that home-grown terrorists are plotting to attack targets in Britain.http://www.expressindia.com/latest-news/
According to reports, in an internet magazine read by thousands of Islamic extremists Al-Qaeda has labeled Britain and Europe as a bigger enemy than the United States.
It further says that the strikes are being planned by terrorists living in Britain and others overseas, and warns of “spectacular attacks.
Some elements of this story surprise me and some do not. Why have Britain and Europe suddenly become a bigger enemy than the United States? I don't know the answer to that. However, I am not surprised that attacks against Britain are imminent. I would take the Al-Qaeda extremists at their world on that one.
So then question then arises, "what are the authorities in the UK going to do about it?" Of course, perhaps their intelligence agencies are already on this case. Obviously, if they are they are not going to say so. But on the other hand, are authorities in the UK too caught up in political correctness to be able to take effective action to stop this threat? Only time will tell.
But one thing is clear. The war on Islamic terrorism is far from over, even though the Obama Administration now refuses to use the term "war on terror" anymore.
Barack Obama is speaking out of both sides of his mouth on this one. In his appearance before the VFW today he appeared positively hawkish. What a contrast that was to his recent appearance in Egypt when he kissed ass and apologized for this country's foreign policy.
I continue to believe that Obama is a Muslim sympathizer dating back to the days when he attended a Muslim school in Indonesia as a youth. His hawkish words at the VFW in my opinion won't fool anyone. Like they always say, "actions speak larger than words." So I am not going to trust the very same person who has shut down the war on terror in the interest of political expediency and political correctness and his desire not to offend anything Muslim even if it means compromising the safety of Americans.
Dick Cheney was right when he said that Obama has made America less safe. Let's just hope and pray that we Americans don't find that out the hard way. Perhaps the UK is next on the terrorists' list, or maybe not. Maybe their threats against the UK are just a diversion.
