Dakar Rally Is Moving!

8

Autosport says that the Dakar Rally is set to move in 2009 to South America after receiving threats from terrorist and the death of four French tourists in the area.

Oddly this quote, and many other news agencies stories, are reticent to mention that the terrorist threats are from Al Qaeda and the group is well armed and organized. The threats were also pointed at the ASO specifically and the rally. important issues that I think people should be aware of. Autosport did mention this so kudos the them.

It also has become apparent that the terrorist threats made directly to ASO following the murder of four French tourists near Nouakchott, Mauritania were specific towards the rally, and made by groups that intelligence sources say were heavily armed and organized.

NC,

Didn’t you mean South America?

Of course there are no terrorist or rebel groups in South America to worry about…….

YES. Nice catch, I’ll change it. Good point. I think it would help understand the organized level of threat and why they are actually moving it. It wasn’t just a group of thugs but an organized group. LOL. Yes, not like S. America is much better. ;)

Dakar needs to have a back up plan, trouble is according to your out going president “the terrourists are everyewhere”

And welcome Kaus, please add a “F**k yeah” in it somewhere and itll rock.

Im off to put a tin foil helmet on and hide in the corner, no terrorist rays are going to get in my mind.
