I don't see much of a problem with it. People aren't dumb enough to look at it and think that yes, for sure there will be an attack on that day.
If it get's more people to donate blood, which is always in short supply, then it's a good thing.
Besides, people here on ATS, and many other websites spout about the next major cataclismic event all the time. Not much different.
The 'fearmongering' of the billboard is to get people to donate blood on a regular basis. How is that a 'reprehensible method of control'? If the

then who cares?
