With the lower water levels river commerce is already at a lull.

Can you describe what you mean by "lull"?

I agree about cleaning up the mess.

Of all the targets in the states, why would that be one?
Is it even a landmark?


It doesn't have to be something big, as this is playing a mind game if it happens, because all this does is show the US we can hit you on your soil in the middle of your country.

Nothing better than mind games.

(Reuters) - The FBI has warned local authorities of a threat that Islamic State militants would blow up the Memphis & Arkansas Bridge spanning the Mississippi River, an agency spokesman said on Tuesday.

The bridge is a major route connecting Tennessee and Arkansas. The Federal Bureau of Investigation passed the threat on to local police in a bulletin out of an "abundance of caution," spokesman Chris Allen said.

"This is an unsubstantiated, anonymous threat," he said, adding that there was no useful intelligence arising from it.

Allen had no details on when the threat was received or how. The warning was reported by Fox13 News in Memphis.

The television station quoted the FBI warning as saying that according to an anonymous tipster, Islamic State had instructed a person in Memphis "to blow up the Memphis-Arkansas bridge on an unknown date, activating ISIS terror cells in the United States."

So is this a lame unsubstantiated, anonymous threat or is the a serious one. Why would they report such a thing? Is it like a ~probably nothing serious, but just a heads up~ thingy?

The last part strikes me - "to blow up the Memphis-Arkansas bridge on an unknown date, activating ISIS terror cells in the United States." It would make sense, no controllable communication is needed the MSM will tell you about it.


What if the threat is not bogus, why do you think it surfaced at all? Why there are threats to begin with?

I need to check your mental 'true color' before getting into arguments.


Thanks.

No problem and glad to help! Sorry about the broken links. I tried to edit it, but had other matters at home and wasn't able to get back on the computer in time for an edit to take place. I'll flag the post, see if a mod and edit if for me. That's what I get for being stubborn and typing out my own url codes!


Edit to add
Here we go... This is what I was trying to say in the previous post. Figure this is easier than wasting a mod's time or sending in an alert.

The news is out there and all it takes is a simple search on Google.
