Another Terrorist Attack Coming Soon?

Quote:
The first of the domestic incidents, all of which drew little attention at the time, began with the holdup of a string of Torrance, Calif. gas stations last summer. Muslim converts who bonded together in prison planned to use the robberies to finance attacks on 20 Army recruiting stations.
...
Police in Toledo, Ohio, busted another cell in February. This one consisted of three men training to attack U.S. forces overseas. Once again, luck played a role. When they tried to enlist someone in their mosque to help, he turned them in.
...
Two months ago, a pair of Atlanta men, one a Georgia Tech engineering student, were arrested not long after communicating by e-mail with two of the suspects arrested in Canada over the weekend.
...
In short, Osama bin Laden didn't pay for these plots, recruit for them or even know of them. They were all totally homegrown — even amateurish. But if four, including the one in Canada, have been uncovered in just 11 months, officials fear there are inevitably other plots that have not been and are maturing even now.
I don't believe all muslims are bad people. I think their theology make them predisposed to violence toward any non-muslim group, as seen around the world.

I like the Canadians with 3,000 pounds of ammonium nitrate they busted recently. Timothy McVeigh only needed 1,000 pounds to blow up the Murrah building.

Buell 1125R
Raptor 700R
No fast cars though

From what I have read, I think they were planning several bombs at the same time.

That's one thing everyone needs to remember - there is always a terrorist attack coming. Hopefully we can stop all of them, but I doubt it.

None of that shit scares me. It's unorganized. If these people were serious about causing some major damage they would take their time, do the research, etc. But they aren't, they're knocking off mom and pop shops and gas stations. They wanted to knock off a couple of Army recruiting stations...that wouldn't have happened...
