The FBI wants to question four Chinese nationals amid fears of a plot to explode a "dirty bomb" in Boston.
Police and FBI agents in Massachusetts were issued with photographs of two men and two women wanted in connection with an "unspecified threat".

Earlier on Wednesday US TV networks reported that agents with radiological sensors were on patrol in Boston.
The FBI issued a statement acknowledging that an "unspecified" threat had been received, adding that the information came from "an unknown and uncorroborated source regarding an unspecified potential threat".

this might be the start of the long awaited cino-american war! 8O

I think that countries who wish to do harm to america will begin to use these assymetrical warfare type attacks to destabilise the US economy, all without firing a single bullet. Completely deniable op. It is the way wars will be fought if america keeps pushing people around (which i agree with in certain contexts)

Or should i put my bacofoil helmet on :roll:

What is about Boston (apart from their MBL team :D ) that makes the Yanks believe it to be a target? A few weeks ago it was the LPG Tanker threat that they were worried about and then before that it the DNC. :?

The Yanks need to get over themselves and implement some real security. Been there more often than I care and they continue to just play at security.

It is one of the major seaports (though certainly not the largest) with a hell of alot of container traffic. Quite apart from civ casualties and damage to the towns infrastructure such an attack would cause a fair amount of economic damage if this is made unuseable.

Huge repurcussions for such a small effort!

But why Boston? The Homeland Security people and/or the FBI have said Boston is/was a target three times now. Why is Boston being singled out, reason given applies to a good 10 - 20 US cities. With regards container traffic West coast far more exposed.

The Boston area was always a big donator to 'the brave freedom fighters trying to throw off the yoke of British imperialism' - or PIRA terrorists as people with their eyes open know them.

Maybe it's a case of what goes around, comes around - or is that just my wishful thinking ?
