Terrorism In Tokyo

Postby GrandWizardofWisdom » Wed May 19, 2004 4:34 pm

A while back two of my girlfriends students (shes Japanese and teaches at a college) came to her and said three middle-aged muslim guys stopped them at Yoyogi station and asked them in not too good Japanese which is the largest and most crowded train station in Tokyo. One of the Japs replied that it was Shinjuku station. Immediately the three men started yapping away in arabic. The students returned to school and reported it to their teacher (my girlfriend). The one who answered the question realized rather quickly that he should not have stopped to talk with them. That was not too long ago. Does anyone think there will ever be an attack anywhere in Tokyo? Use your imagination - alot of damage could be done in such a crowded metropolis. Lets hope not!
BE AWARE! BE SAFE!

How did they know they were Muslims?
How did they know they were speaking Arabic?
Why would these 'terrorists' bother asking a girl in Yoyogi when there are far more reliable sources of information?
Why would any of these things necessarily be suspicious anyway?

Perhaps you should just go away?

Like by repeating a tired urban legend that has been going around Tokyo since 9/11? :roll: That story is just too farking ridiculous to be true, and it didn't worry me the first 10 times I heard it three years ago either.

I think it's time for the Grand Wizard to be lynched . . .

Either share some of your alleged "wisdom" with us or :bird: off and stop trolling the board.

Hi Drone, ah, I mean Grand Wizard (your secret is safe with me nudge, nudge, wink, wink :wink: )

Wasn't there a warning issued that there was a terrorist in Tsukuba operating out of a home won in a lottery and purportedly teaching English as a cover? Anywho, you better be careful of him mate. Its not muslim but his nationality is cloudy. I believe this terrorist is originally from NZ but has US and Aus citizenship on top of his NZ citizenship. In fact he not only isn't muslim, he hates their guts, and gays too apparently. He's easily identifiable as the bloke walking down the street talking to himself and saying "mumble, mumble, mumble, CRACKPOT, mumble, mumble, mumble, CRACKPOT...."

Anyway, just a heads up mate. :thumbsup:

Well well well...........

So this is the thanks I get?
Here I am trying to warn you all that your LIFE COULD BE IN DANGER if you use Shinjuku Station and all I get is potty-mouthed replies. Well first of all the story IS true. I would not make something like this up especially knowing how serious terrorism is and especially after what they did to that poor lad Nick Berg!!!

I really do believe that there are Islamic "fascists" here in Tokyo and that, although Japan is not at the top of the list of targets, THEY ARE HERE. Chances are Shinjuku station will not be hit and I know there have been warnings after warnings the last three years but this is the latest.

As for that guy that was mentioned in Tsukuba I dont know him but you shouldnt condemn someone just because he has strong opinions about, say Muslims or homosexuals. We should be tolerant of all opinions. Is this guy going around beating the shiit out of Queers and Muslims? If so than that is a problem. But to just say you hate them is NOT a serious offense. Thats why I think that those of you who disagree really are CRACKPOTS. There must be freedom of speech, as long as it doesnt physically hurt someone. Shouting "FIRE" in a crowded theatre is a totally different ballgame. But calling a queer a degenerate, mentally-ill piece of trash that will burn in hell just hurts (some) peoples feelings.

Ah I'm wasting my time and omnipotent wisdom. I'm not preaching to the choir, I'm a preachin to...........................................................................




















CRACKPOTS!!!!!

Dudes, this is serious! I heard somewhere (maybe FOX news) that in Manhatten there was a bunch of muslim-looking guys walking around asking directions to the nearest set of tall buildings suitable for crashing planes into in the days before 9/11. But no one caught on and y'all know what happened, so we can't let this happen again.

This is exactly how muslim terrorists operate too, it has all the hallmarks of a Al Qauida attack. They don't know how to read maps 'cause its against their religion and all so they gotta go around asking directions from strangers on the street. The guys couldn't speak good Japanese 'cause their stupid, but they also think it fucks people up psychologically so thats why they do it, eh. Man, these guys sound like they think they are professionals, but they made a mistake in asking someone who was a student at college, cause they of course are going to tell their teachers, who like to go out with trolls, who then tell us. Hah! They sure fucked now!

Thank god for the Grand Wizard! I heard that their crazy desert religion also prevents them from doing things like opening their eyes when they pass through major train stations to see which ones are busy. :roll:

I apologise. Thank you for the warning. I shall never set foot in Shinjuku station ever again.

I saw somebody once who looked a bit Arab. He was probably on a suicide mission. I did hear a few weeks later that there were some troubles in Israel, so it was probably him. If only I had warned the authorities! How many millions of lives would have been saved...

So was it drone or not? Certainly had all the hallmarks of drone. Must have been copying drone's style to get a rise out of us.

guys

I think you have to give it to GWW for this one. The potential terrorist chose an easy person to ask because he iknew one thing=due to that silly little thing called human nature, HE KNEW HE/SHE WOULD ANSWER WITHOUT THINKING ABOUT IT. People in general fail to think outside their own box...and its what outside the box that will do the most harm to them, not what they already know. Most people are generally not particularly assertive in their dealings with others. How does an undercover policeman do it ?? they let the suspect do the work for them and they just clean up from there. A TOP SPY KNOWS THAT 80 % of his job is done by the person he is spying on and the mistakes that the person commits and the clues the person leaves without thinking about it, because most people fail to cover their tracks adequately enough.

US Navy SEAL TEAM 6, the elite murderous marauders led by the rogue warrior himself dick marcinko, used to have a ball playing terrorist because they knew their jobs would be so easy in that their targets would lay the path out for them and they just capaitalised on the massive fuckups. They would wargame their own Navy, and show them up ratherly brutally and embarassingly. Look at the video RED CELL if you want to know more.

Just remember, federal agents tried warn hierachy of 911 about 6 months before it happened.....I bet the hierarchy wished they had listened.

GWW may have been perpetuating an urban legend, but let's not forget the very real run on duct tape and plastic sheeting that happened in the US when it was suggested that a biological attack may occur. Fear is a powerful weapon.

FWIW,

It also fosters an environment where
gays can be isolated and persecuted.

Did you get picked on a lot in school?
Would you like that to continue for
the rest of your life?
Do you think it's fair for others to
get that kind of abuse?

What other people do in bed is
not our business. Let them be.

Treat people with kindness. That
means everybody. You'll be a
better person for it.

Maybe so but I think subway info as such you could research on the Internet or so.

Yeah, that explains everything. I'm gone for a week and a troll just happens to appear. Now, the troll disappears and I'm back.

Hmm.... There could be some kind of connection to this...
