I say “Islamic” with absolute certainty these days. I think anyone can say it without knowing what the religion of the terrorists. Seems like every day news now. The world yawns, UN looks the other way. Liberals continue to deny “War on Terror” exists…
BERLIN — Three men were arrested on suspicion of planning attacks on the U.S. military base in Ramstein and Frankfurt’s international airport, the German defense minister said Wednesday.
“There was an imminent threat,” Franz Josef Jung told Germany’s ARD broadcaster.
He declined to elaborate, but the Sudwestrundfunk public broadcaster said two of the suspects had German citizenship while the third was Pakistani. It also said the men were arrested Tuesday evening and were close to carrying out the attacks.
Thousands of U.S. servicemen and women are stationed with their families in Germany, which hosts key installations including the Ramstein Air Base, Landstuhl Regional Medical Center and Grafenwoehr training center in Bavaria.
The Ramstein base is in the western state of Rhineland-Palatinate and serves as a major transport hub for the U.S. military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. Frankfurt’s international airport is continental Europe’s busiest.
German and U.S. officials have warned of the possibility of a terrorist attack, and security measures have been raised, they said.
Germany has not experienced a major terrorist attack in recent years, but worries have risen since July 2006, when two suitcase bombs planted on passenger trains malfunctioned. Several suspects are on trial in Lebanon, and a Lebanese man has been charged in Germany.
