Target: Washington

The Brits have arrested 3 men who apparantly were plotting to blow up Washington landmarks , including the White House, and 2 of them are british citizens. Investigators in the United States and Britain are urgently investigating information suggesting that a group of terrorism suspects recently arrested in the London area may have been plotting to blow up Washington landmarks using homemade bombs. Counterterrorism officials, who asked to remain anonymous because the investigation was continuing, said the suspects’ possible targets included the White House and the U.S. Capitol complex. [...] British authorities are treating the suspects as serious conspirators. According to an official charging document issued on Friday by Scotland Yard, police last month seized a computer hard drive belonging to Younis Tsouli, 22, containing pictures of “a number of places in Washington D.C. including a CRBN vehicle in circumstances which give rise to a reasonable suspicion that your possession is for a purpose connected with the commission, preparation or instigation of an act of terrorism.” Tsouli is also charged with possessing other computerized slides demonstrating how to make a car bomb. (CBRN stands for chemical, radiological, biological or nuclear. The document may have be referring to an anti-WMD vehicle deployed by law enforcement.) Tsouli is also charged with conspiring with Wassem Mughal, 22, also arrested, to cause explosions in Britain and with Tariq al-Daour to commit credit-card fraud. Mughal is charged with having in the bedroom of his home in Chatham, Kent, a town southeast of London, a DVD entitled “Martyrdom Operations Vest,” as well as a document in Arabic entitled “Welcome to Jihad” and a piece of paper containing the words “Hospital=attack,” according to the Scotland Yard document. Mughal is also accused of possessing a document containing a recipe for rocket propellant and “guidance-containing explosion.” While Tsouli and Mughal are both charged with conspiracy to murder and conspiracy to cause an explosion, the only terrorism-related charges faced by the third defendant, Al-Daour, 19, involve financial activity “for the purposes of terrorism.” British media reports said at least two of the arrested men were naturalized U.K. citizens; other reports said none of the suspects were born in Britain. So they were basically immigrants. Muslim immigrants. Those bastards are oeprating as if their goal is to make suspects out of anybody who is muslim. As I said before, being muslim in europe nowadays must really really suck.

But isn't holy war the true intention here SM? After all,tolerance and acceptance of others is unheard of in your part of the world. Violence against non believers is. You can't integrate cultures which do not want to be integrated but want to dominate and take over. Be careful what you wish for comes to mind. The "yutes" running wild are going to get more than they "wish" for.

Sandmonkey - The radical parties in Islam will not learn, will they? The last attacks on the US reaped the whirlwind. Care to try for more? The absolute worst or best thing, depends on your outlook I guess, that could come out of organized suicide belt/bomber attacks on the US homeland is the final total marginalization of Islam in the US. Visualize whirled peas, my man. Go ahead, step into the blender.

Now that it appears the French Intifada is underway, how far behind is the entire EUropean continent?

Concentrated efforts to take over OUR homelands by outsiders could be disastrous.

Fuck the "muslim brotherhood". Here's the problem personified in this statement. Most naieve brainwashed Egyptians (that's most of them) will read that statement as, fuck brotherhood within Islam rather than the persons and groups who are affiliated with the whore of a group that calls itself the 'muslim' brotherhood. Mind you though Sandmonkey, it was the bad evil nasser that wiped them and buried them. It's your pal Sadat, the pro american who revived them, with Saudi Money and American support.
