How did this "a friend told me" thread make the front page?
61 flags and counting? Cmon Americans, i understand alot of you will be expecting retaliation for the alleged killing of OBL but this is worrying to say the least, there is no evidence or proof of anything in the OP.edit on 3-5-2011 by lestweforget because: (no reason given)
Finally I contacted my friend. Some of you are correct, that is related to the possible terrorists revenge as the Osama is died. He said staying in China / Hong Kong is comparatively safe as the threat is low here. But the government already raised the level of concern as the revenge may be "crazy". Thanks for your reply guys !

Ok, the story is like this :
On 30-Apr, he came to Hong Kong to have a visit and buy stuffs, which lots of Chinese people will do it during the "Golden Week Holiday" starting from 1-May. The holiday somehow could last for a week for some businesses.
This friend is an official whom is working very close to the military, and he is doing some researches in a government owned firm. I know he was part of the military complex but I have no idea what actually he does for the government. I met him when I was working in China for businesses. You know, we Chinese people's working style is "Develop human relations is better than writing superb proposal". Especially when you know some high ranking officials, you could do businesses very easily in China. We shared many topics from philosophy, history, Chinese poems, etc. and we become friends after I finished my businesses.
He visited Hong Kong and he lived in my house during this period. After he settled, we have a good meal. On 1-May, I brought him to buy iPad2, iPhone, clothes, bags, watches, etc. We came back home at around 7:30 p.m. to take a rest, he checked his phone that was put inside his bag. He made a phone call and he turned grey. He said to me that he needed to rush for the airport as he had some sort of URGENT thing to do in China. I asked what sort of thing he needed to do, he said "URGENT", and started to pack things very hurriedly.
I drove him but he said I could drop him in Central, and he will meet other guys there. I dropped him near the MTR station at Admiralty. He told me not to travel during these days and stay in Hong Kong and pay attention to the news. I asked him why and he said, "No more, see you later". Two guys met him and they walked inside a building and left. I phoned him but his telephone is offline until now.
It is hard to believe, and I also know that something is happening. I cannot contact his family also until now. Strange is that my friends in Shanghai said there is nothing abnormal there. My friend in Beijing also said everything is normal. Only the friend who lives in Northwest said the military activity is more than the past few weeks.
When I saw his face after he made phone call, I think it is very urgent and serioues. So I post this thread here to see if anyone knows what happens in China.
Strange is that he urged me NOT to travel and stay in Hong Kong....For what ?

Last, thanks again for your time and reply. You can say I am a liar, spreading hoax, or whatsoever. However, I could say that I have no interests in conspiracies nor UFOs, etc topics. For me, I just care on what will happen next that will influence my businesses.
