Some of these guessers-of-future-events can sound very convincing. They are probably convinced themselves, but no matter how believable they may seem the predictions always fail. Although I cannot see into the future, I can almost guarantee that this prediction will also fail.
I've noticed that predicters, almost without exception, will make the claim that they have successfully predicted major events in the past. Of course, there is never a record of these "successful" prognostications. They also make outlandish claims about the precentage of accurate predictions....85% is a favorite figure. They get away with it because most people have short memories. Many of us can't remember what we did yesterday and the "psychics" count on this to pull off their scam.
The truth is men cannot foresee the future. At times we can make intelligent inferences about coming events which may turnout pretty close to what happens, but these are the result of careful evaluation of prevailing conditions and patterns of developments. Even then, there are more things that were unforseen than had been expected. The unexpected almost always happens.....regardless of how carefully we try to anticipate and out-maneuver the future.
That is the one thing we can all count on -- the UNEXPECTED. This is why life is an adventure.

No, men cannot predict the future, they can however look at events and find the probability knowing how certain people act and the wishes they want done, and determine a probable outcome
Elections, war, new terror threats, the fact that Bush WANTS to invade Iran, problems in the UK, Israel have PR problems, the fact that Israel wants Iran gone and the fact that quite simply, whether you want to believe it or not a mass murder with 100,000's of thousand dead Americans WILL consolidate power within the president. Don't forget.
Dictators will be welcomed by the people with open arms.
In the chaos the ensues after such attack the government could force millions into camps, maybe not to kill I do not think they would do that, but to seperate people to prevent "mob mentality" to let the people understand that they are no longer in charge of their lives, to prvent flow of information and to allow a smooth transfer of dictoral powers to the "president"
Don't think that is possible? Study history, then allow the fact that America is in no way immune to the ways of man.
Also understand that such a warning is not for us to prevent an attack, that is not possible. We are subject to what ever the men incharge decide and nothing you do will stop it. As of now.
The point is to realize that in the event that this EVER occures, with in October or 5 years from now, never EVER give up your liberties, understand it is staged and defend your family at all cost. Be an American and stand up to the inevitable opressivness that will overwhelm the nation. Take our reaction to 9/11 times a thousand. Think we will be understanding to Middle Eastern men anymore? Think we will give a damn about civil liberties for Muslims and other Amricans the Government has taken upon themselves to deem a threat??
9/11 was a coup, our government is in the hands of those in charge, they have for the past 5 years been poking the population for a reaction, Katrina was a test to see what internmint camps will do, what dividing families will do, what going house to house to force people to give up guns would do. We did nothing, we took it like cowards and as a result 9/11 conspirators can do what ever they want now.
I hope nothing of the like happens, that we can carry on our American way of life and be done with this war.

I don't want to sound hystarical or anything but honestly I have excepted that I do not know what happend on 9.11.01 I do not know who did it or why, no one knows all the facts but those who pulled it off. I do not know what our president is planning, I know he is planning war on Iran but why I do not know. We are left with bits and pieces of various truths and because of that I understand it is possible someone may do the unimaginable things outlined in mine and others post on this thread. That small possibility is enough for me to be ready in the event something like this occures. There will be no standing in front of a TV for hours with a stupid look on my face for me.
