In the past months, I have seen two different stories of bulletins issued by the FBI. One involves threats to VA hospitals, the other is about emergency vehicles being used as truck bombs.

NYC on Alert for Emergency Vehicle Car Bombs

N E W Y O R K, June 20 Police and fire officials in New York are being warned that terrorists may be trying to acquire surplus or replica emergency vehicles to use as car bombs that could be planted near government buildings or landmarks without drawing attention.

A law enforcement source confirmed a report in The New York Daily News today that officials were alerted to the plot when two unidentified Middle Eastern men tried to buy a replica ambulance at a northern New Jersey shop that builds copies of emergency vehicles, police cars and fire trucks.

The owner of the shop became suspicious when the men tried to pay cash, and the pair fled without leaving any identification, the source told the News.

"This is a real concern. Terrorists have used ambulances to sneak suicide bombers into areas," the souce told the newspaper.

Among the sites officials fear could be targeted are City Hall, FBI offices, police department headquarters and even fire department facilities.

Fire department and police investigators have already begun efforts to ensure that unauthorized people cannot gain access to facilities where emergency vehicles are stored or repaired, fire department sources told the News.

"We've been told to watch our vehicles, all our vehicles," a fire department source said. "It's the vehicles that can get into areas that we are really concerned about. Who is not going to let a patrol car pass, or an ambulance, especially if we are in a state of emergency?"

The alert comes as the city is gearing up for July Fourth festivities, which generally draw huge crowds to fireworks displays around Manhattan.

There's even the story of the Pakistani doctor gathering information on ambulances.

What if we put two and two together? Who would think twice about an ambulance pulling up next to a hospital. Could hospitals be the next target? A coordinated series of attacks with ambulance containing massive amounts of explosives leveling hospitals across the country.

Any thoughts?

I personally doubt there will be any terror attacks in America before the elections. It makes no sense to rally America around George Bush.

Actually, terrorists want GB as a president, because he can easily be provocated into responding with yet another war against muslims. These people want to turn the 1 billion muslims against the millions of Christians all over the world. They are praying for Armageddon, even if their religion says they will be defeated at the end.

With the last events in Russia, the plot unfolds nicely for those able to comprehend what is going on. Have you noticed that Putin put the blaim on Al-Qaida? that gives Russia the stepping stone in doing their own war on terror, or possibly getting involved in Iran when the US attacks it. Their official excuse will be that 'since Iran helps Al-Qaida, and we were hit by it, we are also gonna invade Iran'. Imagine what will happen when Iran is being occupied by US and Russian forces!

So combined threats are not only a US phenomenon, it is all around the world. WWIII is unavoidable.

At this point in time it does not matter to the terrorists who is elected, the motion has begun, and the stage has been set. Their opinion of the USA will not be swayed or changed whether we stand as a nation and fight against them, (GW), or we turn tail and run from them, (JK), the end result will be the same.

I'm just trying to find patterns here. I think that this one fits. This is a method that does not call attention to itself and could easily spook the public.
