Acctually he knows things, because he works for the FBI. He was very confidante about it too. He didn't act like he was allowed to tell me either.

If this was the case, they'd be telling the world. If people know about the attack, they will be less terrified when it happens. A 95% chance means that it essentially will happen. One question: How? Until it is answered, I am skeptical.

I really don't think it matters where one lives in America, you are all under threat of being attacked by Terrorists. It is the same in Britain and other nations which have supported the war (Spain for example, Madrid train bombings). As long as a nation wages a War on Terror, Terror will wage that War right back at you. It is the nature of things. When attacked one fights back, is this not so?

All America's major cities must be kept on high alert, and so should U.K. cities. Recently, an al-Qaeda attack was thwarted in Manchester. It was apparently aimed at killing tens of thousands at Manchester United's football ground, Old Trafford.

I do not wish to be the Bringer of Bad Tidings, but you cannot discount the possibility that everyday, somewhere in the world, a Terrorist plot is stopped (or not). I'm sure the people responsible for National Security are pushing to their limits to lessen the risk of an attack, but the enemy is determined and you cannot discount the possibility of success on one or more occasions in the future. When your friend told you that there is a 95% chance of a terrorist attack, it is possibile that he meant there is a 95% change of an attempted terrorist attack. Just because it is attempted, does not make it successful.

Be vigilant. We all have a responsibility to protect our communities.

True. Attacks can happen anywhere. All major cities must get equal watch. Strategic targets like powerplants, transportation centers, high-density population areas, and management nodes (power company HQs, etc.) are the real targets. Also, military bases. Those are your protected areas. Anything else is secondary. Hey! This will be my 500th post. Hooray for me! (EDIT: Just call me First Sergeant.)

Whilst the chance of another bombing in the US is likely, I believe leafy Britain is getting more and more of a target. US, UK and Spain. The three most major nations to participate, and out of those, the US and Spain have been bombed.

That leaves one target.. England. I read a report about how vulnerable our nucler power plants are. If we are hit, it will not be London, but Birmingham or Manchester or any other major city. It is less expected there.,

There's little more than terror caused by the takeover of a nuclear powerplant. They can't do anything more than cause a power outage, which wouldn't really hurt this time of year.

P.S. Spain is leaving Iraq, so al-Qaeda isn't going to attack them anymore.

Moof, I was refering to an attack on a power plant. IE, blowing one up. I know of one in Oxford which has alot of residential areas surrounding it, and it is impossibly easy to get into.

I wouldn't be. At least here, in Britain, politicians, police, counter-terrorist agencies are openly saying that we will be hit, its just a matter of time. The FBI man doesn't know where and when, but he does know they'll have another crack. It's common knowledge that more attacks are coming, all over the world.

Your FBI cousin either is blowin smoke up ur ass or doesn't know shit to begin with. The FBI is America's premier counter-espionage agency. They take great pride in not letting anyone else know shit. So he probably heard a rumor and proceeded to pass the rumor. I just love those blanket warnings where they say "something might happen somewhere". They already know exactly whats going to happen but cannot give up too much information. And just to clear things up, it is difficult to blow up a reactor by say, running a plane into it. The worst probable outcome to runing a plane into a reactor wud be a crack a some radiation leak while the technicians stop it from going critical. Then we can watch a movie about it in five years.
