hopefully not!

I haven't heard of it but don't be paranoid. They can't reach us. That's why it's a travel alert. Al Qaeda is a joke compared what it used to be before Obama came into office.

This is specific to a possible attack on US embassies in the middle east according to the news reports, there has been no indication given at all that its an attack on North America.

Even though this may be true, what the warning says is quite bone chilling.

Read what I posted below, there is a threat for North America.

EDIT: Please ignore what was said above. I have been misreading 'africa' as 'america' for the past 2 hours.
Quote:
The Department of State alerts U.S. citizens to the continued potential for terrorist attacks, particularly in the Middle East and North Africa, and possibly occurring in or emanating from the Arabian Peninsula. Current information suggests that al-Qa’ida and affiliated organizations continue to plan terrorist attacks both in the region and beyond, and that they may focus efforts to conduct attacks in the period between now and the end of August. This Travel Alert expires on August 31, 2013.

Terrorists may elect to use a variety of means and weapons and target both official and private interests. U.S. citizens are reminded of the potential for terrorists to attack public transportation systems and other tourist infrastructure. Terrorists have targeted and attacked subway and rail systems, as well as aviation and maritime services. U.S. citizens should take every precaution to be aware of their surroundings and to adopt appropriate safety measures to protect themselves when traveling.

Or maybe a Louise Bourgeois would be great as Spiderman is a NY trademark!..

Don't want to argue but just think it's regrettable that that thread is more a fac simile of Flickr for people chasing "likes" than a real forum where people debate.
We need more people like Otie,Pmadflyer,Dinovabec,Joshua Dodd and some others who,by the way come less and less on that forum.
Just my opinion....

You've been posting non-sense for the last few days......

Posting pictures is just as important as, in your words, "debate"

How can people around the world, yes this is a international forum, view the building if there isn't pictures for them to see?

Ever member here serves some kind of purpose, so please don't try and talk like you know it all.

Oh, and please enlighten us on what you would like to "debate" on, about the building. Would you like a three page long talk about the ugly spire? Because that appears to be the norm around here.

Anytime I hear someone say they want to "debate" more on the forums, I always second guess their real intentions. Nine times out of ten, those people usually end up just starting unneeded arguments and attempt to stir shit up. There are ways to express your opinions and have "friendly debates" without sounding like a Troll.

I was expecting you to be upset as you are one of those i was thinking about...
Just think it's not very smart and original to post pics everybody saw on Flickr.
But if it keeps you busy and happy it's certainly your right...

So by your logic, everyone here on the forums visit Flickr and looks up pictures about the WTC everyday?

You can't even properly have an arguement; "I don't argue with kids" lol. I'm 19 years old and can fully take care of myself. Thanks.

You want to have formal conversation but yet when someone calls you out, you call them kids? Very mature.

If you have a problem with me or any of the other forumers, you can kindly send a PM.
