Al-Qaida sounds a call for its terrorist followers to strike the United States and other Western nations with car bombs — and even suggests times and targets — in the Spring issue of its magazine, Inspire.

The magazine manifesto suggests U.S. targets such as Washington, D.C., New York, northern Virginia, Chicago, and Los Angeles, as well as locations in Great Britain, France and "other crusader countries."

The article suggests terrorists aim for places that are heavily populated: sporting events, election campaigns, and festivals.

Christmas and New Year's are suggested as good times for attack. In Europe, the article suggests attacking the Bastille Military Day Parade in Paris and soccer stadiums in England "when huge crowds leave the stadium and celebrate around the entrances and [the English Football Association's] FA Cup matches."

"The important thing is that you target people and not buildings," the article says.

Washington and New York have "symbolic importance," the article says, because D.C. is the seat of the federal government and New York is the former capital and currently the country's financial, cultural, transportation, and manufacturing center.

Northern Virginia is suggested because "almost all the military bases are based in this state, apart from the Air Force which is based in Chicago." The area also is home to many government agencies, the Department of Defense and CIA and "attracts a load of tourists," the magazine said.

Chicago is the second-largest financial center in the United States and is a major transportation hub. Los Angeles is the second-largest city and is home to Hollywood. Celebrities often visit restaurants in the area on weekends, the article says.

A letter from the editor in the front of the magazine reads in part:

"The American government was unable to protect its citizens from pressure cooker bombs in backpacks, I wonder if they are ready to stop car bombs!

"Therefore, as our responsibility to the Muslim Ummah in general and Muslims living in America in particular, Inspire Magazine humbly presents to you a simple improvised home recipe of Shahzad's car bomb.

"And the good news is … you can prepare it in the kitchen of your mom too."
