    07.07.07. - Terrorist attacks likely?

    Tomorrow is 07.07.07, lots of celebration of all things holy - there's a big christian gathering here in Nashville, probably more around the country that I haven't heard of.

    Well my antenna are positively shaking, you may or may not realize that Nashville is the largest concentration of Kurdish Iraqis in the country, that alone makes this city a target IMO - but coupled with the very significant date from a judeo-christian viewpoint and I have to be honest when I say I will be extra careful where I go tomorrow.

    Al Qaeda is known to favor significant dates.

    Two of the 'Al Qaeda in Iraq' car bombers arrested in Britain last week had made plans to travel to the USA, those plans fell through.

    Tin-foil hat time maybe, but be careful out there folks - it's time to start thinking how they are thinking.

    As Retsupt would say, take care, avoid crowds, enjoy the weekend...

    Pete, remember that the Kurds are a race of their own and do not like the Sunnies or Shiites. IIIRC the Kurd area of Iraq is pretty quiet and Pro USA

    Miggy - search 'KPG Nashville' - Kurdish Pride Gang, they just started up (Nashville only AFAIK) and are trying to take over the Airport side of town, they've already started shooting cops.

    Also, the Kurds having such a presence is fine (gangs aside) but how many Iraqis came here and pretended to be Kurds?

    Nobody knows that answer yet but burqa wearers are getting far more common. Give it 10 years and I'll either admit I was paranoid or say 'I told you so'...

    Living in Vegas I'm always hesitant of the crowds and going downtown during certain dates. Try to stick to the outside of the valley here. I think if anything is gonna go boom it'll be somthing down on the strip. Prolly pack some extra firepower next couple of days. Everyone stay frosty and try to have a good time as well. God bless.

    Pete - for me any day could be ''the day''. And I try not to be a pessimist.

    I have related before how 9/11 occurred for me - I flew into Dulles Monday 10th - drove home, all was normal and nice. Went to bed and when I got up for what might have seemed ''just another day'' ..... I saw the whole thing unfold. That day changed everything.

    What a transition from one day to next.

    True there could be choices made re dates and holiday periods but, whatever happens and whenever - it will be like my 9/11 experience ....... normalcy to chaos.

    Can't say it's special to me, other than the only time in our lifetimes there will be such a numeric coincidence.

    Some seem to regard it as ''lucky'' - as in maybe the diametric opposite of 6-6-6!!

    Dearborn has the highest muslim percentage, or muslims of Middle Eastern descent anyway...

    Nashville has the most Kurds, which are specifically Iraqi, and my problem is that while Kurds are perceived as allies they are starting to rebel (KPG) and how many lied about their background?

    But regardless of wether it happens here, there or everywhere... tomorrow is a significant date. And they make me nervous...

    I think the entire hype is ridiculous. Of course, the date is not special or representative of anything. People tend to enjoy conspiracy theories and make coincidental occurrances important and even causal. Even moreso in hindsight. After 9/11 it was popular to think the enemy targeted that date because of our emergency phone number.

    I expect August 8, 2008 to engage the media similarly as the last seven years.

    I wonder if there was similar nonsense in 1907.

    7/7/07 is special to me...

    There's a gun show the 7th and 8th, and my birthday is this weekend, too.

    Coincidence? I don't think so!
