The United Nations has boosted security at its European headquarters after receiving warnings of a possible terrorist attack, according to an internal document obtained by AFP.

"The Swiss authorities have contacted us to inform of a possible terrorist attack against United Nations premises in Geneva," the UN security service said in a note to staff Thursday.

HMMMMM....Wonder what Karl Rove is up to? after all he did promise a big October surprise to help swing the voters back to the Republican party. Hope it back-fires on the bastard.

Terrorists don't like the end of the week. They'd rather have major attacks on the days they can get the most TV bang for their ... uh .. bang.... Mon/Tue/Wed.

I saw a talking head from DC say that. Considering this is Thursday I'd say they are more likely to hit next week on Tuesday, after the long holiday weekend.

(we will be in NYC tomorro and again on Monday. Figures ... *sigh* )

Oh for pete's sake.

Terrorists love mon/tue/wed because they get the media coverage. A major hit on a Friday (and a three day weekend following) wouldn't get the coverage the terrorists want.

It's common sense and it's what the terrorist analysts say in DC as well.

It could still happen, but Tuesday after the holiday, is the more likely day.

Oh, for Petes sakes,

You dont know that, FF.

You think even the stupidest planner of all evil is going to continue picking Monday or Tuesday on an ongoing basis?


Terrorist analysts tell you that? In DC?

Sorry flyersFan but I am not buying your theory. The bombings in Madrid took place on a Thursday. Several other attacks took place on weekends in Bali and Saudi Arabia also as I recall.

It's not MY theory .. it's what the talking heads said on TV. The 'experts' on this from DC say that the terrorists prefer a beginning of the week so they will get the most media coverage.

That's not saying that they will take advantage of any situation and if they see an opening on a Thursday .. they'll take it. But they prefer the most media bang for their hit.

As far as Bali goes .. of course the nightclub was hit on a weekend. That's when it's mostly packed.

I think it's common sense. They'll hit when they think they can get the most people and the biggest media coverage. They'll hit anytime of course, but I'm sure they prefer the most media time.

Already told you ... on tv. A talking head terror analyst on tv. Read the post DG.



Edited to add - do YOU think the terrorists will hit the UN over the next few days .. meaning over the weekend? Of course not. The buildings won't be nearly as full as after the long holiday. That's a DUH!

Well, yes ma'am.

I read what you posted.

I guess we are safe today then- it being a Thursday.

Ma'am YES Ma'am.

Where is your sense of humor today?

i looked at the [http]://bern.usembassy.gov/
i went to the UN HQ in Geneva www.unorg.ch/
clicked links to UN Office in Vienna
clicked links to UN Office in Nairobi

no press releases of any consequence involving alerts

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

if there is chatter about some UN site as a target,
there must be another rogue faction causing the ruckus...

mostly because it's my understanding that the fundamentalists
wait till after the Holy month of Ramadan to swing into new actions??

I didnt' say that. I said it was more likely that they would wait until Tuesday for the long weekend to be over .. for the buildings to be full and for full media attention.

I'm stuck going to NYC Friday and Monday. I usually love to go. I'm not too worried. But I'll keep this in mind.

Just curious why flyersfan keeps mentioning a long weekend? Does Europe have a long weekend this week also?

Too the best of my knowledge Columbus Day with a few exceptions is a work as usual day for most Americans.

Because in America it's Columbus Day. The UN is in America. It's a federal holiday. Many schools close. Postoffices close. Many federal buildings close. The UN could very well be closed. If it isn't, then many times people take the day off as a vacation day anyways becasue the kids have a holiday so they take a long weekend.

That's what we are doing. My daughter has a long weekend. My husband is taking a vacation day on Monday. Many in his office are doing the same thing. A family LONG weekend.

THAT is why I keep mentioning a long weekend. In NYC .. it's a holiday for many people. That's where the UN is .. NYC.

Ah I can see where the confusion is then. This alert was issued for Geneva not the US, at their European Headquarters

Picture of Guards in Geneva



Caption reads



"United Nations security guards check cars at the entrance of the UN Office in Geneva. The United Nations has boosted security at its European headquarters after receiving warnings of a possible terrorist attack, according to an internal document obtained by AFP."

But the threat is not towards the NYC UN Headquarters...

I doubt the psuedo-holiday of Columbus Day is even a factor in any of this.

Washington is getting to heated for Republican comfort, so occurs the terrorist alert has to step in, to see if they can make the population stop thinking about sex scandals and back to terrorist attacks.

Only one problem a sex scandal will kill any terrorist alert in a hard bit.

Unless they go as far as bringing another 9/11.

Now for Rove he is talking about Iraq surprise, and I think he got it already.

It was a raid in Iraq and they think they got another man number two of alqaida and one in Iraq.

They are waiting for the DNA test.

But like I say a sex scandal in Washington will kill any number one in Iraq any time.
