I mean because so many buildings need to be razed anyway! (Don’t be so sensitive.)
Al Qaeda is calling on terrorist affiliates to detonate car bombs in major U.S. cities, including New York, Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles, in the latest edition of its Inspire magazine.
The issue comes nearly a year after the Boston Marathon bombing, and as the city readies new security measures for this year’s race, being held next month. Inspire is the same magazine that included instructions for how to make pressure cooker bombs, which were used in last year’s Boston attack.
The magazine’s Spring 2014 issue urges jihadists to target heavily populated events such as political rallies and sporting events, both in the United States and abroad — including in Great Britain, France and other “crusading” countries.
And they offer this advice:
“Disguise yourself during the operation, appear fat (add some clothes on you), change your complexion, be a ‘clone’, use any mask (believe me embarrassment is the last thing you will think about), wear a mask suitable for the festival, white beards on 25th Dec,” it reads. “All in all, be creative brother. The most important part to hide is your eyes and around.”
Be fat and grow a beard…say, you don’t suppose…
PS: To return to the question in the title, Al Qaeda has been after us for 23 years, since Bush 41 put profane American boots on sacred Saudi ground in January 1991. Since him, we’ve had Clinton, Bush 43, and now Obama. So, why call out for such indiscriminate bloodshed in American cities now, under Obama? I don’t really have an answer, but it surely suggests a confidence they didn’t have before.
