WWTD- What would terrorists do?
I have been thinking. If I were a terrorist, when would I attack next, and what would I do?
This is just a thought game. I am not giving a prediction.
It helps to reflect on and anticipate the devices of the enemy, so we can block his plans.
It seems apparent that the terrorists are preoccupied with numbers that have special meaning for them.
9-11 happened at 9 am in the 9th month on the solar Gregorian calendar, but on the 6th month on the Islamic lunar calendar. There were 3 planes, and 3 buildings went down.
11 and 19 are also a special numbers to them, in their numerology.
They tend to favor the anniversaries of religious, or historical, dates also. For example, I understand the 9-11 attack was on a date where they had experienced a defeat in history.
They have 4 months where they are not supposed to wage war, although that did not stop the WTC 1993 attack. However, they did use a bomb loaded truck, instead of suicide jihadists, so technically, they had the day off.
9-11 happened on Jumaada Thani 22, in 2001. This is the 6th Islamic lunar month.
For 2009, Jumaada Thani 22 occurs on/ about June 16th, which happens to be the 6th solar month on the Gregorian calendar. So June 16th would be the 8th anniversary of 9-11 on their Islamic calendar.
If I were a terrorist, I would not pick another September 11th, but would stick to the Islamic calendar.
2009 = 2 + 0 + 0 + 9 = 11
The Number 666 fascinates them also.
So, if I were a terrorist, and would attack this year, 2009, I would pick Islamic 6th month (Jumaada Thani 22 anniversary, which is June 16th.), in 6 cities, at 6 pm.
I heard one opinion that planes may not be used next, since that had already been done. Possibly, suitcase bombs left in large public areas.
This may be totally wrong, but it is still important to study patterns of thinking and behavior, especially if our security depends on it.
If anyone else has any ideas or thoughts, go ahead and express them. Maybe a crazy thought could save lives. We need to be alert, and keep thinking.
Remember also, that the attack does not have to be with a bomb. It could be a programmed biological threat, like this current bird/swine flu situation taken to a higher level.
Or, it could be a combination of things. First, weaken the population with illness, so they cannot fight, then bomb them.
Think outside the box!
The future years, 2010 and beyond, would require further scrutiny.
