    Two Parcel Bombs Hit Embassies in Rome

    Who could the Swiss possibly have pissed off?

    ROME—Parcel bombs exploded at the Swiss and Chilean Embassies in Italy's capital on Thursday, injuring two people and raising concerns of possible terrorist attacks in the country's shopper-packed streets ahead of the Christmas holidays.

    An Italian anarchist group said it was behind the attacks in a note found on the clothing of the injured Chilean.

    The message, written on behalf of the Informal Anarchist Federation (FAI), said: "We have decided to make our voice heard with words and with facts, we will destroy the system of dominance, long live the FAI, long-live Anarchy."

    Apparently these groups have links to other anarchist groups in Greece, last month Greek anarchists sent a dozen or so parcel bombs out - 4 exploded. The news of today's bombs was briefly a "breaking news" feature on BBC news but quickly became a small news item. Very little mention was made of last months series of parcel bombs in Greece...

    All very odd.

    al Qaeda promised Christmas bombings, too, so it's anybody's ball game at this point.

    I'm thinking AQ would have been on the horn claiming responsibility, by now, though.

    No one important. Just your average retarded anarchists.

    Rome explosions at embassies linked to Italian anarchists - CSMonitor.com

    Rome explosions at the Swiss and Chilean embassies today bear the hallmarks of Italian anarchists, who could be trying to take advantage of the country's fragile political situation, say experts.
    http://www.latimes.com/news/nationwo...,5652310.story

    An anarchist organization claimed responsibility for at least one of the blasts, the Italian news agency ANSA reported. The group, calling itself the Informal Anarchist Federation, left a note in a box found near one of the victims that said, "Long live anarchy."

    Al Qaeda isn't a real threat. American leftists are the only threat to America. No mercy.

    In a thread that isn't about Al-Qaeda or America, you bring up the subject of American "leftists" and a threat to America.

    There's a thread about quitting smoking in the health care forums. Perhaps you'd like to inject your opinion on leftists there?

    The hearings on corruption start in January.
