26. You guys need to remember the history
These al queda guys are nothing if not historical. They are very
focused on symbolic links between the muslim world and the west.

The world trade center was a symbolic link between the west and the
whole world.

The bombing in turkey was at the gateway between islamic and western
nations geographically, and timed to go off as bush touched tony
blair's hand in london greeting.

The moors and the islamic history in spain is part of this as well.
The spanish people were not aligned with aznar in this war, and by
thier proximity to north africa, share more sentiment with those
folks than nations further away. This makes the target another
fringe western power with islamic history and a population unenthused
by the bush nutter.

Were i an islamic historian, i could tell you likely predictions for
another bombing. Lybia for cooperating with the west. Egypt for
cooperating with the west. Morocco, France, Algeria.

There is logic behind attacks, and western paranoia about their
cities is not reflected by the attacker's track record... rather look
for those ghassanids
(mentioned by bin laden, historical tribe leaders
who sided with the roman emperors and occupiers)
