    Default Breaking: US citizens to be warned to avoid public places in Europe

    US may issue terror warning to Americans in Europe - Telegraph


    Sounds like a overreaction to me but a serious call if it is made.

    The Obama administration will issue a warning Saturday to U.S. travellers in Europe to avoid places frequented by Westerners based on new intelligence suggesting an attack by Al Qaeda could be imminent, a senior U.S. intelligence official told Fox News.

    The travel warning is expected to be announced at 4 p.m., pending Secretary Hillary Clinton's approval, the official said.

    Very serious call. The Associated press are saying the warning will tell American's to stay away from tourist areas, airports and transportation hubs (which is the same as saying don't go to Europe)
    US may issue warning on public places in Europe - Yahoo! News. This could have all types of unintended consquences. Cynics might say this is all to do with the upcoming midterm elections.

    American tourists are more likely to see their holidays spoiled by rioting/striking Europeans, than by a tiny number of violent Islamo-fascists.

    Why is Obama doing Osama's job ? Terror inducing statements like his are silly
    "Yawn , am I alive yet ?"

    Is it a ruse to get Americans to spend their dollars on staycations instead ?

    It would be difficult to avoid places frequented by Westerners in Europe, unless they spend their time among Muslims. Where's the security in that?

    Supposedly, they were fearing a Mumbai style attack where a handful of people would simply walk into highly populated areas and just shoot until they themselves are killed. It certainly wouldn't take long for them to murder a lot of people.
    In places like London, it would take several minutes before armed police would be on the scene. Since continental police are routinely armed, it's likely that the first responders would help keep casulties lower than they might otherwise be.
    Anyway, it's probably highly unlikely to happen, especially when such warnings are being given.

    Maybe a American false flag operation coming into play?

    The computer virus in Iran is supposed to be out of control and some are expecting Iran to strike Israel in retaliation.

    Could all be connected.

    Default USA to issue European travel warning

    Speculation is increasing that the USA is imminently going to issue a warning to its citizens concerning trips made to Europe. This arises from increased fears of an islamic terrorist attack taking place in Europe. There is some irony when a country with a homocide rate of over three times that of France warns its citizens against visiting France. Perhaps they'd be better warning their citizens against visiting their local school.

    Could have a considerable impact on our tourist sector though.
