AUSTRALIANS have been urged to reconsider travel plans to Indonesia following fresh warnings of an imminent terrorist attack.

In its latest travel advice announced yesterday, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade said it was continuing to receive warnings that terrorists were in the advanced stages of planning further attacks against Western interests.
DFAT said reports indicated targets included places frequented by foreigners

http://www.theadvertiser.news.com.au/common/story_page/0,5936,18877040%255E911,00.html

I looked this up because last night on New Zealand T.V. they were warning westerners not to go to Indonesia. Not sure if this is the typical paranoid response by governments, I got a phonecall last time I flew to Jakarta from some Aussie dude on behalf of Quantas calling me warning me not to go 8 hours before the flight. Nothing happened at that time, but figured you guys may want to see what the media is saying today

Cheers The Magpie

They keep giving dates about when there's likely to be an attack, it's kind of funny. If they keep doing it, the dates I mean, everybody will just learn to totally ignore it, if they don't already.

Anyone know where they are getting this info from anyhow? what makes them mention actual dates?

I remember when Kuku said the same thing on April 2, but it's only rumor.

Complacency is the one thing we cannot afford in a society where acts of terrorism are a real threat. Governments post warnings on a regular basis so that they can say "Well we did warn you", we as citizens should be aware of the possibilty at all times, not just when the warning is issued.

one of the reasons i stopped posting australian embassy travel warnings was that they were so frequent. they are clearly designed to keep the australian government's collective bum well covered, so they can always say "well, we told you so".

Must have learnt the cover your ass tactic from the American's....no wait a minute...... They just change the law as they see fit, or ship you off to a country that has no laws if they cant get their own way! :rolleyes:

the militant and revolutionary action of violence such as suicide bombing always seems attractive, particularly to the youths having shallow religious knowledge.

The safest place will be at Warung Pojok. Coffee tastes better there anyway.

or in that back alley, where the mysterious Bakso Man appears after dark and serves the best Meatballs in Bandung. Its bloody miles from anywhere, kampung big time, but safe as houses.

Setting up an underground plan or working on cells system arouses their adrenalins. Furthermore, they were pledged by heaven which, in their mind, full of beautiful angels and luxuries. By launching such actions, man who was “nobody” becomes “somebody” and important person. Man like Amrozi or Imam Samudera (convicted Bali bombers) believes that they were on the right path. Desperate youths were main targets of this terrorist mission.
