Why did they attack this hotel at this particular time?
What was going on at this hotel that deemed it a target?
Who were they trying to attack?

The news media just wants to make this attack out to be another random bombing by terrorists, but what we have all learned over the last few years is that they do not attack hotels for no reason. They attack hotels because of who is staying at them, or the meetings that may be going on in their closed door lobbies.

What gets me is the revealing statement on Fox News that states:

Gardaizi said rescuers had counted at least 40 bodies, and he feared that there "dozens more dead inside." Many of the dead were security personnel.

That’s a lot of security personnel, but security personnel for whom? The media will not say. There is more to this story that is for certain.

What about the fanatic Americans who believe you can kill the idea of terrorism by killing people? For everyone you kill, you create many more enemies. How would you react if someone came to your country and killed your people?

Oh wait, thats what 9/11 was. How did America react? Did 9/11 make you Americans afraid? What makes you think the muslims will be?

This whole thing is idiotic. All the fighting on this planet is idiotic, and the smart people are so taking advantage of your gullibility. Everyone who believes you can cure problems by wars are sheep to the elite.

I find it very interesting that you speak in terms of "let this happen again" and so on. America is not the world police. Specially not when being just as bad yourselfs. Just because the executions carried out by CIA and NSA isnt on the news doesnt mean it doesnt happen.

Black water was just something that got public by mistake, just like the Guantanamo tortures. I suggest you get off your high horse.

what of the exections and maimings in Saudi ...friend of america lets ignore those

and remebr the freedom of the people become an issue when the wmds and terrorist links dont quite sell the deal

the CIA blagged Russia into afghanistan so it could have its very own vietnam and damage its forces and economy with the long drawn out war

a war paid for and armed by the US, russia lost afghanistan won, drag it out and make em pay became the friend of anyone wanting to take down a bigger richer power,

now the tactics learnt thier are used to drag out the wars, its only a matter of time till the people cant take anymore till the money dries up and the bloods to deep

and a goverment willing to chase shadows and declare enemies for thier own gain

Afghanistan was revenge the first new vietnam. Iraq was a choice and got made a vietnam. and now the struting posturing and threatening lean on Iran so imbalance pakistan too give you more targets more reasons to attack more vietnams to destroy your selves

when you have no battle ground to fight on and no army to fight with how better then to let your enemies make them for you

it doesnt matter if its false flag or anti americans from what ever group, the aims the same america goes in to lend a hand asked or not, you can dress it up as bringing freedom, and killing terrorists or showing the true colours of amercia to terrorise and invade and hurt the innocent

the outcomes the same

your hatered breeds more hatred, without america in thier doing what it does they could never recruit the fighters to take america on, they could never get the fighters to the enemy if america wasnt already in there. they couldnt bleed the economy if america wasnt there in the first palace

edit: interesting new info false flag may be right

The Marriott made a huge effort to boost security after the latter attack.

It erected massive metal and concrete vehicle barriers outside the hotel and increased checking on all cars entering the compound. The lobby was also extended to include extra body scanners and X-ray machines for bags.

Some westerners privately complained that the lobby extension -- including the construction of a gigantic glass fish tank -- actually decreased the distance between the front of the hotel and the road.

Footage from the inside of the hotel after the blast showed fish from the shattered tank flopping around the debris while rescuers dragged blood-spattered dead and injured people from the wreckage.

Oooh look straight away they blame the admitted to be engineered and false 'Al CIAda' and of course last week Pakistan told USA to get lost and don't cross their borders. Every time you see Al-CIAda pandered around it just throws up a big red false flag.

We have the SAS terrorist imitating soldiers caught in iraq with bombs and commiting atrocities.

Put two and two together... it's plainly obvious to see.

Surveillance video from the attack, or at least how it began. They also have footage of the largest explosion, but it hasn't been released.
