Ehh... the FBI couldn't stop the circulation of a video on the internet by blocking ONE site. Not to mention a video that is actually quite legal out of context.

I hope this will not happen. Though terrorists do happen to threaten a lot but nothing happens, another attack will probably happen. I fear for the people being threatened and myself, because nuclear weapons tend to send side affects all throught a large area of space. Since I like in a state ajascent (sp!?) to new york, I hope the radioactivity would not spread all the way towards ohio (i live in ohio), because in years to come, it could cause lukemia (I think thats one of those diseases caused by radio-activity) and other serious diseases. I fear the most for the people in new york now.

A big problem also with this is if a plane does come a long carrying nukes, then how are you going to protect the city safely? The people defending the city would have two options; shoot the plane, and watch it explode as the nukes also explode and send a massive fireball and nuclear gas cloud hurling towards the city, causing civilian casulties, and radio-activity. Or, let the planes bomb the city. Of course, the first option would probably be the best, but would still cause a high number of deaths. Thats my theory, what'ya think?

Of course, I get the feeling everybody is ignoring my posts for some reason and probably wont even read this anyway, but I try.

Don't worry, snowman, I read your posts.

Well, I've heard of threats like these before, and 99.9% of them never happen. This is the first I've heard of this, and I have serious doubts about its validity. Obtaining nuclear weapons requires very delicate handling by people who know exactly what they're doing.

Besides, even if it was true, there's nothing any of us can really do about it. The American government would do their best to track it down. Additionally, one has to be strong. To live by fear is a horrible thing.

Hmph. How come they always target my state? Jerks. Like I really did anything to die in a radioactive cloud.

Oh well. It doesn't seem likely that this is legit, although I suppose we'll all know for sure in 29 days.

I don't believe it, but I guess we will know soon enough.

But if it does happen, then those people won't be able to get Halo 2, or HL 2, or PS3, or XBox 2, and they won't be able to see Britany Spears' iminent pr0n debut.

That would sux0rz

I really hope this dosen't happen. But there is a reason to be worried. In the aftermath of 9/11 it was discovered that a similar threat was made that had talked about what happened on 9/11.

America won't end. That's about as likely as Bin-Laden being found before he dies of old-age.

"The nuclear cloud of doom" sounds very fictional.

And it's most likely fake, but it's just the thought of America...--

Terrorism scares me, but if those special agencies did their job right, some things could have been stopped from happening.

Too many flaws in the threat. Considering al Qaeda is full of Muslims, they'd of said 'If Allah wills it'. Nuclear cloud? Pfft.

I wouldn't say it was completely beyond the realm of possibility - but I think it highly improbable that NY will end in a nuclear attack.

If I was a smart terrorist, I'd nuke Las Palmas instead, toppling half the island into the sea and creating a titanic tidal wave that would devastate the entire East coast of North America. I mean, that's due to happen in about 150 years anyway...or something...

Man, I frighten myself sometimes...

1) While possible, this is very unlikely to happen.
2) To answer someone's question, they are attacking America becuase the don't like America becuase of America's involvement in the Middle East. Don't get me wrong though, I would not like a terrorist attack as much as you.

Been to Tenerife lately?

I wouldn't imagine this happening..... and if perhaps it did happen (which it hopefully or probably won't) I think George. W would retaliate fighting fire with fire. Then - holocaust.

Hmm...i'm not sure what to say. I'm worried becuase as Snow said, I'm nearly adjacent ( ) to NY. But if "God wills it", he can block it. It's not like he hates us and favors terrorists. Heck no.

I highly doubt that Bin Laden has some freaking nukes... I mean come on... but I dont think we are at risk of a terrorist attack on February 2. Reason 1 being the Iraq War crisis thing going on, I don't think Bin Laden would erm, attack us while that is going on... then again I could be wrong

Trying not to be fearful... FREEEEEEEDDOOOOOOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!! I mean we're all gonna die sometime...

It's very unlikely that they do have a nuke. And surely US authorities would realise that there's a plane carrying a nuke heading towards NY.

They would have to use a plane because otherwise NY would be out of their range.

I don't know about that Excelsion, they didn't realize what was happening on 9/11 until it was too late. I think that it is possible that there are terrorists that have nuclear capabilities. There are many warheads missing from the Cold War. Thus, there is a chance...

Aye, but those were regular planes, and we weren't expecting anything. Do you know high of an alert USA is on right now?
