Explosions rock Jordanian hotels

At least 23 people have died and more than 100 have been injured in explosions at three major hotels in Amman, Jordan.

News reports say the Grand Hyatt, the nearby Radisson SAS Hotel and the Days Inn three kilometres away were hit in succession. The hotels were being evacuated. The explosions occurred between 8:50 p.m. and 10 p.m. local time.


************************************

The associated press is saying that a police spokesman has said the bombings bear the hallmark of Al Qaeda. Personally, i think that international cooperation has severely limited Al Qaeda's ability to act--so might this be Al Qaeda's way of portraying themselves as still an effective and dangerous organization? Is it not arguable that Jordan is the target because it would be easier for them to penetrate a middle eastern target than one in North America or Europe?

It is interesting to note the 9-11 connection. November 9th would be 9-11 in that part of the world since the day comes before the month.

Since the hotels are American, it seems that Al Qaeda is trying to make a statement. More to come? Hopefully not, but the reality probably differs. Sad times.
