Foreign Minister Alexander Downer says the travel advice his department issued yesterday on Indonesia has just been updated.

"Today we are issuing a fresh travel advice for Indonesia on the basis that we have credible reports of a possible terrorist attack on Hilton Hotels or possibly other western hotels," he said.

"We would urge Australians over the next period to keep well clear of these establishments."

Mr Downer says there are three Hilton Hotels in Indonesia in Jakarta, Bali and Surabaya.

He issued the warning in Lae in Papua New Guinea where he has been attending the annual Australia-PNG ministerial forum.

Free-to-air television stations are now constantly "alerting" their viewers to, what they imply, is an imminent attack in Indonesia. Indonesia's three Hilton hotels are given as possible targets (frequented by foreigners).

The media keeps using the term "credible information" so please forgive me for been a little skeptical.

ive always wanted a gas mask


who is scared, most aussies couldnt give a crap about terrorists.

i have been scared in the past, but i have found the only way to live life is to deny the terrorists/govs or whoever you may deem to be doing the scaring, from completing their goal, just live life and dont fret on the fact that we may be attacked someday.

it has happened before, in the 70's (i think) a hotel in sydney was attacked by terrorists, i think it was a hilton aswell.

and in Bali (although not on aussie soil many aussies were killed and Injured)

US Embassy In Indonesia Warns of Increased Risk.

The United States embassy in Jakarta has warned of a heightened risk from terrorists in the country ahead of the Christmas and New Year period.

The mission's latest message, which urged citizens to stay away from potential targets, follows alerts from Australia, Britain and New Zealand.

They said extremists behind a series of major attacks in the country could be plotting further actions over the festive period.

"In the days leading up to Christmas and New Year's holidays, the embassy continues to receive reports that terrorists are planning attacks against a wide range of targets," the message to US residents said.

"These attacks could occur at any time and could be directed against any location, including those frequented by foreigners and identifiably American or other Western facilities or businesses in Indonesia."

Nine Bombs Found on Indonesian Bus.

NINE homemade bombs packed in cylinders were found on a bus in West Java today amid new warnings of terror attacks.

National police chief General Da'i Bachtiar, speaking after meeting President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, did not say if police had made any arrests over the seizure.

His comments come two days after Western governments, led by Australia, warned that militants could strike soon against an international hotel in Indonesia, possibly one of three Hilton hotels.

Unfortunately, it seems this intel' alert may be correct.

Further,

Indonesian police said they had found two separate collections of bombs as they imposed a major alert following foreign warnings of an impending terrorist strike.

The discovery came as police were being deployed across Indonesia in a huge security operation after Australia said terrorists may be plotting to strike in the run up to Christmas, specifically naming the Hilton hotel chain.

Britain and the United States have also warned that their citizens in Indonesia over Christmas and the New Year faced a "heightened risk" of attack.

New Zealand has cautioned against non-essential travel to the country.

Christ, this situation is getting hairy very very fast. I had posted an article a while back aboout the Australian government putting together a fast strike team. This may one of htose situations that it could be used for. Or the thier special forces. Assuming that Indonesia want them there.

Indonesia are pretty touchy about being told what to do in these situations. In my opinion, the best
thing that all Governments can do is issue these warnings, and issue them fast.

Travel Warning
United States Department of State
Bureau of Consular Affairs
Washington, DC 20520




The Department urges Americans who choose to travel to Indonesia despite this Travel Warning to observe vigilant personal security precautions; to remain aware of the continued potential for terrorist attacks against Americans, U.S. or other Western interests in Indonesia; and to register with U.S. Embassy Jakarta, U.S. Consulate General Surabaya or the U.S. Consular Agent in Bali. Registration facilitates the U.S. Mission's contact with Americans in emergency situations. Americans in Indonesia should maintain a low profile, vary daily routines, avoid crowds and demonstrations, and keep abreast of local news and developments that may affect the security situation.

Guess what I just heard on C-SPAN....(7:30 am)

They are discussing the battlefield of Christmas(you know the non-religious challenging public support of Christmas) and one caller said 'We never had any problems with Christmas till all them muslims come over here. We should send them back where they come from and then NUKE them.'

I say we should save money and just nuke them here!

Has anyone noted the parallel between the US's terror warnings and the UFO/Meteroite attack?
