Majed, I think that it has more to do with the fact that having a large group of people in an enviroment like that may be considered unsafe at this time. It would be a perfect location for a terrorist cell to wreck havoc.

Wow, that is a really beautiful stadium.


Now just imagine the potential disaster if there were a terrorist strike against it. It's pretty obvious now that these terrorists aren't just Anti-American, they are anti-anyone who supports the US.

That's pretty stupid......why would people bomb some soccer players. There's no motive behind it. As for the other killings, well that's understandable. ;)
For the same reason they'd kill Italian peace keepers

Yeah.....I just said I hadn't found out about that. But still, peacekeepers are involved with politics....soccer players are not. What I mean is that it's not the norm for that to happen...people who have nothing to do with the ongoing "crisis" to get killed like that.
