US Embassy Closures?Submitted by DevisDevine on Tue, 08/06/2013 - 13:19
I am curious to hear the thought of fellow DP members on the US embassy closures. I have been waiting since late last week to see a discussion on this but I haven't caught any yet.
What is everyone's thoughts on this?
Whats going on in Yemen? I haven't heard much talk about them for a while until recently. Did I miss something?
To me it is a bit strange to close a bunch of embassies for a weekend and then extend it. On top of that we got another email at work today for a blood drive, which is nothing new. We typically get these 1-2 times a month. But today's was sent with an additional message:
"THE AMERICAN RED CROSS: HAS ISUUED AN EMERGENCY APPEAL FOR BLOOD. / ALL BLOOD TYPES ARE NEEDED."
I have seen these before after major disasters such as hurricanes, but as far as I know we haven't had any in the US for a while, let alone the south east region I am in.
Has anyone else gotten similar red cross messages?
Am I just being paranoid thinking that things are about to finally break over?
