Beam Me Up, Scotty.

It look like it’s time to run for the hills again.

This is the last message we send to the European countries. We are giving you one month for your soldiers to leave the Land of the Two Rivers. Then there will be no other messages, but actions, and the words will be engraved in the heart of Europe.

Doesn’t sound very good, does it? It’s part of a statement posted last Saturday on a web site know to be a clearing house for Islamic extremist material. The statement is posted by one of the at least two groups that claimed responsibility for the London bombings. The authenticity of the statement has not been verified, but I guess you can’t really verify any of this until something blows up. The group has claimed responsibility for all kinds of things before, like the 2003 blackouts in the United States – which was caused by technical problems.

This was posted on June 16, which means the timing is just excellent for my August 13 trip to Italy, one of the countries that will supposedly be blown to pieces around that time. But even if it happens, the odds of me losing a limb is pretty slim. If I do, it was nice to know you.

  1. I wouldn’t worry about the terrorist wackos. the most risky part of your trip will probably be the italian traffic. I’ve heard its just alot harder and stressful than ours.
    :-)

  2. Even if you walk around in Italy, look out for italian drivers – they’re crazy! :-D

    Also look out for some italian ice cream, which is truly delicious.

    (Especially cinnamon ice cream, but its hard to find)

  3. I’m reading Lonely Planets book about Rome now, they also recommend that you don’t get to involved with in the traffic.

    And what about Italian girls, dude? You know a thing or two about them, don’t ya?
