Japan issues Europe travel alert, joining US in Terrorists' Warnings. (http://www.csmonitor.com/World/terrorism-security/2010/1004/Japan-issues-Europe-travel-alert-joining-US)


While Al Qaeda has not targeted Japanese nationals, the rare travel alert is a sign of how seriously Japan and other governments are taking the Europe terror threat.

The reported threat is somewhat like the Mumbai Massacre a while back in scope.

US, Japan Caution Travelers; Britain Hikes Terror Alert (http://www.voanews.com/english/news/US-Japan-Caution-Travelers-Britain-Hikes-Terror-Alert-104267398.html)


Western intelligence officials said last week they had uncovered a plot by al-Qaida-linked militants based in Pakistan for terror attacks in major British, French and German cities.

Officials say the plot is believed to involve multiple attacks on public places - similar to those carried out in Mumbai, India in 2008, when near-simultaneous attacks by Islamic militants killed or wounded nearly 500 people.

Yeah some of the US drivers get killed when PEOPLE FROM FOREIGN LANDS ARRIVE, RENT A CAR AND DRIVE ON THE WRONG SIDE OF THE ROAD!

'Some people' excludes present company, of course.

Actually - the SUVs are safe - it's prying the tiny little crumbled balls of foil out of the suspension from the Euro boxes that run under the SUVs that cause a lot of troubles.
