<div class="intro">
<p><strong>Revolutionaries, reporters and film crews assembled on
Friday morning for a "Press Conference and Anti-Inaugural
Banquet." It was held near Howard University at Café

red-flag-filled cowboy-hat stomping made the 5 o’clock news

He thinks the attack is being planned to mobilize the US for ever more war and to ensure support for a military draft. And the article's footnote suggests the attack on US interests may hit a US city...and it may be nuclear.
