Tuesday, November 09, 2004website. Apparantly to mark this opening they will hold an unforgettable launch party that will rock Bahrain (literally) and includes such delights as a few car bombs and suicide attacks. Those on the hit list:
-American ambassador’s residence
-hotels and other entertainment venues
-University of Bahrain
UoB, what the hell is that doing on there?? Maybe they mean UCB…watch out Strav…And why isn’t the fifth fleet mentioned?? Naaaah, this is way too dodgy.
I wouldn’t take this threat too seriously. But just the thought of such an attack on Bahraini soil, I mean the country is soo small that a bomb might just dislodge it from the sea bed and what remains of the island might start floating into the Indian ocean.
I finally figured out how to watch the BBC's documentary called The Power of Nightmares online. Its a 3-part series, exploring the philosophical, historical and contemporay context behind the way we view Global_Terror. It is highly controversial as it claims that Al-Qaeda is a myth and looks into the philosophies of Leo Strauss the spiritual godfather of the neocons in the Whitehouse to explain what drives the US's foreign policy. Check it out for yourselves and check out the tonnes of reviews online. A program definitly worth watching though.
