    The american embassy sent me a very long email today.
    American citizens living in europe need to be very careful and avoid public
    Transportation if possible because a suspected terrorist attack is expected to happen. I wont get into too many details but it kind of freaked me out.
    Athens has not been targeted yet while moscow london madrid glasgow etc have all been attacked. Kidnappings are expected to occur because thats how al qaida and the isis fund themselves. Im going to avoid the metro as much as possible. Im just very dissapointed that this is what we as the human race have become. Killing eachother and living in fear.
    Who is right and who is wrong??
    I get angry when america meddles with other countries but these people are very dangerous on the other hand. Religious fanatics who train to kill in the name of Allah.
    The terrorist attacks are al qaida's and isis's response to the recent the american attacks according to the email i was sent.
    "American citizens need to be on high alert and keep as low a profile as possible."

    And the reason for it is absurd. There is enough pain and suffering without groups trying to actively cause it. TOO MANY EGOS...

    As someone once said, "Eternal vigilance is the price of freedom". There is a fairly significant risk of a terrorists attack in almost any megacity on earth. The terrorist threat level in the UK has recently been increased, due to the UK's involvement in air strikes on ISIS (and presumably based on intelligence that ISIS-backed or inspired terrorists are trying to plan attacks in London and in other capital cities whose governments have backed anti-ISIS military action).

    It helps to keep a sense of proportion though. You are far more likely to be killed or injured in a megacity by something mundane like a motor vehicle than you are by a terrorist attack.

    If the increased threat bothers you, try to avoid public transport at peak times, stay away from 'iconic' sites where large crowds tend to congregate (e.g. in London, Parliament Square, the Millenium Wheel, Harrods) and avoid large public events.

    pazzy saidISIS is just another codename for CIA which means you should be paranoid. i really don't buy the idea that folks from abroad would go to war with america and if they were, they damn sure wouldn't be blowing shit up. that's NOT hurting the u.s. they'd do what china and india is doing and basically take over the american economy where they figuratively and literally OWN us.

    to me, i think that radical islam propaganda the u.s. keeps throwing around as an excuse to go to those places where the u.s. government is willing to do some shit like put some planes through some towers or whatever is basically because some oil and drug trafficking type of shit. funny how since the iraq/afghanistan war, the amount of heroin that's coming into the states.... it ain't that weak shit either. it's that high grade shit that's making folks drop dead like flies. and these doctors giving the real gateway drugs (percocets, opiates) trying to make a new line of fiends off of that shit. it's no coincidence.


    So many batshit crazy conspiracy theories rolled into one...

    Let me just deal with the one that touches on my profession though-

    Doctors give pain killers to relieve the suffering of their patients. Some get addicted. But we can't predict or control everything. We have to deal with the. Once they're addicted. Trust me, heroin addicts are no picnic to treat. No physician creates drug addicts on purpose.

    Hmm, not really, but radical Islam is arguably an unfortunate by-product of the Cold War. The US (the UK and others) were happy to propagate extreme forms of Islam, such as those in Saudi Arabia and Afghanistan, provided it kept the Soviet Bloc at bay.

    No, I'm saying that during the Cold War it was expedient for the West to encourage and assist the growth of radical Islam, as a means of countering the Soviet threat. Unfortunately, once the Cold War was over and the Soviet Bloc had dissolved, many of the same radical Islamists decided to get angry with the West. In other words, radical Islam is, to some extent, an unintended consequence of Western Cold War strategy.

    The thing is that these attacks don't accomplish anything.
    Innocent people are going to die. And nobody negotiates with "terrorists".

    It accomplishes plenty. It taunts governments into taking action. And when they do, the terrorists use it in their propaganda to brainwash the ignorant.. "look at the infidel Jews and Christians attacking Muslims. let's fight them".

    Amen. Pazzy sometimes you say something insightful, but you sound CRAZY. When I had my wisdom teeth taken out I was so thankful I was given a prescription for Vicodin. I was bruised for over a week and it hurt to drink water. Now when my friend had his wisdom teeth taken out I think he said he ate a steak for dinner and went back to class the next day. EVERYONE reacts differently, I think alcoholism has taken more lives than prescription pain killers... Now should we eliminate alcohol and other freedoms just because we think people can't handle themselves icon_rolleyes.gificon_rolleyes.gificon_rolleyes.gificon_rolleyes.gif

    I think the movie Charlie Wilson's War was based on this? Julia Roberts and I believe Tom Hanks were in it.
