Al Qaeda still after N.Y.C., NYPD chief Ray Kelly warns

Recommended Posts

The ominous graphic posted on terrorism websites suggesting an Al Qaeda attack is yet another reminder that New York City is the No. 1 target for terrorists, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said Tuesday.

“It’s not tied to any threat,” Kelly said. “But it’s obviously a cause of concern.

“It reminds us that New York is still very much on their (terrorists’) minds.”

The graphic, which depicts the New York skyline in movie-poster style, crossed the NYPD’s radar early Monday.

Not a shock. Even with the 1st year anniversary upcoming since OBL was killed, there still many people who hate America and thus NYC will sadly always be among the biggest target for terrorists worldwide.

Not that profiling is justified, but since the main threat is from radical Islamists, people* have to stop crying foul over the wiretapping and stuff. The people that knocked down the Twin Towers were muslims from Saudi Arabia. In WW2, things were far worse after the bombing of Pearl Harbor where FDR rounded up Japanese Americans into prison camps and pretty much confiscated all their belongings. So wiretapping, [though unfortunate], is still better than mass imprisonment.

 

*ACLU types that would prefer extremely lax security so that no one is 'offended'. More like better dead than offend.

The primary reason why Radical Muslims want to attack our city is because NYC is the capital o Capitalism. Does that sound a bit familiar to you? Of course it should the Radical Muslims are against not just Democracy but the idea of Capitalism.

Not just capitalism, they won't stop until the entire world is converted to accept their warped religion. It doesn't help that Iran and Saudi Arabia are the worst for allowing extremism to brew out of control. In an ideal world, those two countries would be at war with each other and take care of the world's extremism problems.

Truthfully their whole religion revolves around Mecca. One nuke to take out that city and we can remove the religion from the face of the planet. Not suggesting we do it though, but if we do it could be a double whammy. On one hand it would prove that god doesn't exist and religion is one big lie, but on the other hand they could potentially not accept the fact of that and would instantly start a World War where people would go into genocide. The risk is too great so we can't do that either.

Dude, If the U.S were to ever nuke Mecca, Loads of innocent people will die in the vicinity . Mass hatred will be on the U.S. We don't need anymore. The U.S won't stoop down to their level.

Can we lock this thread before the racism gets any worse?

 

Christianity hasn't exactly been too lovely over history -- Crusades much? If you're judging by events over history, your perspective gets warped. Don't judge Islam by the acts of a few lone terrorists. So let's not talk about "nuking the religion [islam] from the face of the Earth."

 

Lastly, this whole article is just a Ray Kelly wet dream: something to wave around as evidence of terrorism, "justifying" spying on more Muslims and taking away more civil liberties. Best thing we can do is ignore it.

This racism (or prejudice, more specifically):

Need I say more?

I am not. I am saying that we have the capabilities to take their religion out. I am not saying that we are now am I?

That's still going way too far though. Yes RADICAL muslims are to blame for the terrorisms across the world, but you don't 'solve' things by nuking their holy site. You target the people responsible for spreading the hateful ideology.

Yeah, let's nuke Mecca and just see what happens. I'm sure the whole thing will go swimmingly. What you're proposing Roadcruiser1 is the equivalent of trying to kill a fly with a rocket launcher. Grand Concourse hit the nail on the head. You don't target the whole religion, especially when the overwhelming majority are just trying to serve their god peacefully. You go after the radical ones. You know, the ones who are trying to kill everyone in the name of Allah.
