Thread: Bush Kept Us Safe?

  1. #1

    Default Bush Kept Us Safe?

    True or not?

    This is very sinister sounding.

    Does everyone think that another 911 style plot could be real, or is it just fiction?

    Three days to 9/11 !

    A terrorist attack can happen at any time, at any place.

    But those predictions are full of inconsistencies. For example:
    I asked Hill, "Why now?"

    "Eight years from 1993 to 2001, eight years from that 9/11 to this 9/11," he said. "Symbolism. They're big on symbolism."

    "Ramadan started two weeks ago Saturday," he said, referring to the Muslim holy month of fasting. "It always hits around Ramadan."
    The 1993 bombing occurred in February.

    Well, since it's doubtful we can do anything about it defensively, complacency at least has the virtue of "what, me worry".

    I'd noticed the numerological connection before. 911: isn't that the number you call when there's an emergency. Clever.

    As I recall, both the Madrid and London attacks had a numerological basis that you could or could not take note of, depending on your inclination.

    Since we're pretty much helpless, complacency makes sense. At least it lets us get to tomorrow without pointless anxiety.

    uh... Tue, Feb 23 1993 Ramadan begins (the start date is a few weeks earlier each year - lunar calendar).

    The 1993 World Trade Center bombing occurred on February 26, 1993.

    No inconsistency there.

    And its true - they are VERY big on symbolism. Al Qaeda rarely does anything without some symbolism behind the date. Course the question is, what symbolism are they going after? A famous martyr? A previous attack? The start of the crusades? The 12th Imams birthday? You can probably link almost any date to something symbolic.

    In 1993 Ramadan was in February/March.

    I don't see a reason to believe the attacks aren't done with symbolic intentions, it's just that they do find symbolism in so many things that trying to predict what particular symbolism is intended is near impossible. So it might as well be random.

    ETA: oops, I didn't see you just basically said the same thing^^.

    If I lived in New York City, I'd arrange for me and my family to be Upstate somewhere-- preferably not downwind from the City.

    Here's an even easier question, I think;

    Did Bush find Osama Binladen, like he promised the country that he would? Did he (Quote) 'smoke him out of his hole'?

    ^^ Call me crazy, but without Bin Laden, there would be no Iraq War.

    As for Bush keeping us safe: He didn't.

    Without BinLaden, we'd have still had the Twin Towers still standing tall in Lower Manhattan.

    The USS Cole would not have been attacked, and neither would that train bombing take place that occured in Madrid.

    The 19 terrorists who had all gotten aboard those 4 planes would have been scrutinized more and stopped fom carrying out their deadly diabolical plan.

    How on earth could the gov't let this evil plan slip through the cracks? They KNEW that something was up because they were warned beforehand.

    The government doesnt care about the people. They care about making names for themselves and money for their pockets.

    Could you guys please do a favor for me.

    Ask everyone you know in New York whether they have heard of this story.

    And ask them what their reaction is and post it.

    I just wonder whether this news if broadcast would cause a panic. I sure hope not.
