Weather forecast for Washington DC?


Baitullah Mehsud, is a jihadist based in South Waziristan, where he heads a group known as the Tehrik-e-Taliban. Mehsud has made a name for himself since late 2007 as one of the militants' most ambitious leaders. Increasingly emboldened, Mehsud claimed credit two weeks ago for a deadly paramilitary assault on a police academy near Lahore and threatened the White House, telling the Associated Press: "Soon we will launch an attack in Washington that will amaze everyone in the world."
In other words, he's predicting some kind of weather forecast with the sky enlightened shown on the picture above, or is he bluffing?
These kind of radicals from a country without any 'ethical history' Pakistan are good for a lot of headaches in Pakistan, India and espacially the USA.
I don't want to create fear, but the reality is; Pakistan can colapse easily like Afghanistan 10 years ago. The difference is that Pakistan has nukes and Afghanistan didn't had.

These are some really unstable and scary days. Somehow I feel it's better to not be living in large cities, no matter which country.

Well Mr. Boccaccio, we can move to the Italian country side together and tell each other stories untill the danger is past?

I really hope that it is a bluff, or if not that it will be stopped before any loss of life. But it pays to always be prepared just in case. That's why I blog, to help others.
