On September 25th, I predicted that the jihadoterrorists would SOON try to expand their attacks into Jordan. I said this because it is my belief that as we put more pressure on Zarqawi -- and Assad & Iran: THE TWO MAIN NATIONAL BACKERS OF JIHADOTERROR -- that they would get their jihadoproxies to try to widen the "battlefield" from the Sunni sections of Iraq and eastern/southeastern Afghanistan to Jordan and Israel.
THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT'S HAPPENING (hat tip NRO/THE CORNER):
AP: Explosions Hit Hotels in Jordan; 7 Dead -- Nov 09 -- AMMAN, JordanThe ball is in King Abdullah's court. He must respond ruthlessly, or risk being overthrown by the jihadoterrorists - just like his father nearly was in "Black September."
Explosions rocked two hotels in the Jordanian capital late Wednesday, killing at least seven people and sending ambulances screaming across downtown. The cause of the explosions was unclear. The first bomb, at 8:50 local time (1:50 p.m. EST), struck the Grand Hyatt, completely shattering the stone entrance. An AP reporter saw at least seven bodies removed from the hotel, and many more wounded carried out on stretchers. Police said a second explosion hit a wedding hall at the nearby Radisson SAS hotel, and there were believed to be casualties. Both hotels, in the commercial Jebel Amman district, are frequented by American and European businessmen and diplomats.

STAY TUNED... especially to Assad's RARE scheduled live television address to his nation on Thursday night...
