The US government is considering warning its citizens to be vigilant while travelling in Europe because of the threat of an al-Qaeda commando-style attack, the BBC has learned.

US and UK officials have confirmed that updated guidance may be issued because of the current terror threat.

A UK official said the travel advisory would not be country-specific.

It would also not go as far as advising against travel to Europe, the official said.

Scaremongering or a real threat for Americans? Shouldn't be too hard for terrorist to spot Americans in Europe, but why attack them there? If you were/are a US resident would you heed this warning?

I doubt this is really as big of a deal as the Pit is going to make it.

Probably just a little heads-up pamphlet.
Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV
And you think you're so clever and class less and free
But you're still fucking peasants as far as I can see

A working class hero is something to be.

I kinda doubt there's a heightened threat than before, but after planned terror attacks were foiled recently (http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2010/sep/29/terror-attack-plot-europe-foiled), it's probably best to kinda say. But the news is gonna make this out as a huge threat.
I'd be surprised if anyone stops their holiday because of this, but some people can just take things out of proportion.

I think we should get a pamphlet on how to deal with suspected Americans.
A UK official said the travel advisory would not be country-specific.

It would also not go as far as decided to use even go want to do look more like? the official said.

I wouldn't be able to tell the difference between an American or European until they opened their mouths.


Well, there's their girth.

Sounds like the UK is thinking about doing that too.

I disappoint Kjell. Making a very anti-American sounding thread just to get more views .

Just quoting the BBC headline in this case, you US imperialist dog.

I wouldn't be worried about it AT ALL. Actually, an Al-Quada "commando" attack on me would be my last worry when I'm backpacking through Europe.

Yep, because ALL American's are like that.

Shit that has gone down in Europe:

Two World Wars, the Holocaust, the Napoleonic Wars, the Spanish Inquisition, terrorist attacks by the IRA, ETA and Al-Qaeda among others ...

Europe's a dangerous place - don't come here!

Shouldn't be too much work. Coming from the Great Lakes region, I've had difficulty finding any noteworthy differences between my accent and that of an English-speaking Canadian.

That's true, the differences are subtle ones that only people from that region would pick up on anyways. If you go for a southern Ontario accent you'll most likely still be picked out as an American, it happened to my friends when they went to Belgium.

Perhaps he is thinking about the increase of terror threats in Europe and wanrs people to go there. What I am trying to say, is that he probably meant that travelling to Europe is a good idea because of terror threats. However, it's bullshit; there isn't really more dangerous to be in Europe than being in the US. It might depend on the country though.
