Reading the definition of "October Surprise" for reference on another thread elsewhere on ATS, I began to wonder what the current one would be.
Read the definition on Wikipedia with the link I provided you at the top of this thread, and you will see, it is essentially said in the smallest
terminology, a "Political Jack-In-The-Box" in that it is something that is so surprising, and or controversial so as to influence the outcome of an
An example, and I am not saying speicifically the date of October, but the Monica Lewinsky scandal where she "smoked the President's cigar" using
the colorful euphamism there for a sexual favor, that we all know about because of the news media. That is similar to an "October Surprise" in that
it influenced the public's opinion of Bill Clinton and his Presidential Administration.
So, the reason I began this thread, is so people can put there "October Surprise" predictions, and specifically being that I posted it here in the
"War On Terrorism" forum area, it is that I am stating I believe it will be involved in some context and or connection to the current and ongoing
War On Terror, in some way, shape, or form.
Will it be that Osama bin Laden will be found and captured?
Will it be that Osama bin Laden will be found to have been dead for some time?
Will it be that one of the current Presidental Adminstration will get assassinated?
Will it be that one of the Presidnetial nominees will be assassinated?
Will it be found out that Bush is guilty of "war crimes" by the F.B.I.?
Will it be that some foreign dignatary will shed light on oil scandals?
Will it be Hugo Chavez will officially declare war on the United States of America?
Will it be that life in found on Mars?
Will it be a "false flag operation" involving aliens?
Who know at this point in the game, but I am interested in your opinions as well as predictions. Be thorough and give website links to back up your
views as well as state your beliefs, even linking to other ATS'ers work here on the site or even to your own ATS links, utilizing it to back yourself
My personal opinion is that Bush or Cheney, or even a Presidential nominee will make a world startling announcement of some kind, or even the
possibility of Nuclear War on American soil.
No links to back that up, just a hunch. My gut tells Me something big will happen.
Always follow your gut instinct.
I think no matter what it is that the "October Surprise" is, it will involve the "War On Terror" in some way.
