Al Qaeda is planning to attack Euro 2008

Doesn't this story win today's 'No Sh!t, Sherlock' award?

Thousand of people coming to Switzerland, and the Swiss police think there might be a terrorist threat. Glad to hear they're hiring the best they can find :roll:

And I suppose there will be more scare stories about them planning to target the London Olympics in the future. It doesn't take the brains of a brainy person to come up with that. Ah, it was in the Telegraph, that's different then! Not enough pics of boobs, too many words in that tome for me I fear.

Its a security nightmare for the Swiss then...

In the world cup they trialled this "open air free zone" type idea (like Manchester last night" to see if they could control it and if they were feasible.

The thumbs up was given and so they're planning on it in most town centres across the country. Any one of those will be a crowd control dodgy bag nightmare, added to the fact that most swissies don't know what a terrorist threat is...

Fortunately, if AQ goes for the AK47 option they'll be taken down in seconds as plucky Swissies grab their Sig 550's...

Of course they are.

Well that should win friends and influence people. Off the top of my head, I can't think of many Muslims I know, who DON'T love Football, well Birmingham City and Scumchester anyway.

Plenty of England Flags hanging from windows and in cars in Talibanistan Minor during the Euro's and World Cup.

You only have to watch the following that teams from Muslim countries get in competitions in the Middle East and elsewhere.

Not saying it's not a potential target, but as a potential to shoot themselves in both feet, it's pretty much unrivalled.

All true ptp, thinking of turkish passion..

Given 9/11, I would say AQ is pretty good at shooting itself in its own feet... unless the "Jihad on America" is going as planned...

I forgot the Turks Mr. H! Then there are the Iranians, Iraqis and Syrians who are football-mad, as are the Indonesians and Malaysians.

Enormous potential for an own goal there. *giggle*

If they attack euro 2008 and we are all expecting it wont it make catching them a little one sided, shouldn't we do the British thing and say...give them a 10 minute head start

Me too i fancy Spain, i think they will win it. I'll also go for Spain vs Germany in the final, and maybe 1-0, torres at 33 minutes, bet i get good odds on that then, oh and i'll also say no terrorist attack at all on the Euro 2008 matches.
