    Default 08 terrorist threat?

    Without seeming like a doom monger has anyone given any thought to the possibility that Liverpool could be a terror target in 08? Has any work been done to prevent this?

    Should imagine so, St Annes police station is a training
    centre for anti terrorism.

    I hope they blow up the Echo Building.

    But not before I snap a pic of the building to show the shame of a poor designed building.

    There are plans in place for any event in Liverpool, not just for 2008 when something major happens. People in the Council who aren't normally at the front line of the news deal and prepare for any problems, from buildings that have partly fallen down to mass bomb alerts.

    Default dont worry be happy, al Quadi and 08

    Terrorists will not be able to target any events as Im not sure anyone knows when and where things are going to happen.

    I suppose there will be yet another (the third I think) launch in November, so if I go I will be looking out for suspicious characters trying to find out what's going on in 08, although there is a good chance they might be from the culture company.

    In reality if alquida want to target 08 if the warning phone call mentions the word "community" then the CC might want to put up a marquee and do the catering.

    I doubt it. Hardly anyone I've talked to outside Liverpool seems to know what 'Capital of Culture' is, let alone the names of either of the cities that hold the title in 2008.

    I think the Olympics is more likely to be targetted, but then again, maybe not, as terrorists will know that security there is top notch.

    A Reader's Digest survey conducted last year claimed that none of the UK's major cities is fully ready to deal with a major disaster or a terrorist attack on the scale of the 7 July bombings and concluded that Liverpool was the least-prepared.

    Let's hope the powers-that-be took some notice of that survey.

    I understand the concerns were around the incompatibility of communication systems used by the various emergency services and the explanation of the city's emergency evacuation plan. The 'powers-that-be' appeared dismissive of the reports findings.

    Default muslims

    i feel sorry for ordinary Muslims in this country the stigma they suffer must be bad i know they say not all Muslim's are not terrorists but the sad fact is in this present time all terrorists are Muslim's.
