Although, there is no specific location mentioned in the threats that have been spreading across the internet, the FBI is warning that stadiums in America could come under attack by suicide bombers during March Madness. Sports stadiums are considered soft targets and with so many people gathering to the events the opportunities for bombers would be many. It is feared that blond or black Muslims might be be able to blend in well with crowds and be able to conceal explosive under heavy clothing.

The FBI has warned stadium operators of a possible suicide bomb attack at sporting events — even though it cannot assess the credibility of a posting about the alleged threat on an extremist message board nor is it aware of any imminent threat.


Still, the FBI says the message is getting broad distribution on known extremist Websites, described as a cost-efficient way to kill thousands of Americans.

The alert comes as college basketball tournaments around the country are getting under way.

Let us hope that this warning is no less viable than the recent one involving the self-identified harlot. March Madness does create a very good opportunity for those who would wish to do harm to the most amount of people with the least effort. Most Americans seem to be taking the threat in stride, refusing to limit activities out of fear. It is this kind of indomitable spirit that has always characterized the Americans.

I think most Americans have come to the understanding that stadiums and arenas, or basically any large gathering can be a potential terrorist target, but until an attack actually happens, we'll take our chances, live life and enjoy sports events.

I don't like sports and don't have the time to start taking an interest in them, but this make sme want to find an event nearby and attend.

I'd be willing to bet, though, that nothing occurs. I would think that they would not tip their hand in such an obvious manner.

Maybe it is a sleight of hand, rather thanthe tipping of the hand.

I thought sporting events being a terrorist target was
just common sense. Of course they are. Tens of thousands
of people all drinking beer and relaxing on national TV.
MAJOR target. It's a terrorist's dream.

You Guys ever seen that movie The Sum of All Fears? There a group of terrorists detonate a nuclear device at the Super bowl - and blame it on the Russians.

Surprisingly these Terrorist Master is not some Islamic Fundamentalist - but some Austrian Nazi Neo-Fascist Freemason, who wants to start WWIII.

Well - you Never know, you know?

EXCELLENT movie!!

First the BOOK had Islamic Fundamentalists lighting off the nuke.
But for the movie Hollywood changed it to neo-nazis.

Yea, and interestingly their goal was...

The goal in the book was for the terrorists to let themselves get caught and frame the Iranian president for the attack in order to provoke the American president into launching a nuclear strike on the city of Qom, which would kill scores of innocents and thus shame the US in the eyes of the world.
