The "almost" Times Square Bomb
 
Surprised nobody heard/posted about this.

Luckily nobody was hurt. Could only imagine the destruction there would've been if that bomb had detonated.

I wonder if they found any Glenn Beck or Bill O'Reilly CDs in there.

Probably not, because then they would've been parked outside of the White House.

But all jokes aside, whoever this dude is obviously a nut. Hopefully they find him and lock him up very soon.

Dude stop stealing Saden'ss lines. You're not the resident liberal. Lol.

As to why this wasn't posted, well I guess you need an actual bang to get peoples attention. The incidents where something good ends up happening (ie New Yorkers working together to prevent an accident) don't get nearly as much screen time. Plus by all accounts this was put together by an idiot, not a well connected terrorist. The fact that it failed as hard as it did is a testament to that.

MSN posted it, but it wasn't a main headline when I first saw it.

As someone who is in Times Square a lot, and whose wife passes by there almost every day...this is scary stuff. I'm glad nothing happened and I hope the suspect is caught soon

If you work anywhere near any major city you are not safe. I almost want to say places like Times Square may even be a bit safer, have to think there is add security there.

The person probaly have more luck in a less of a "hot spot" area.

Well he got the truck into the time square and if he had built a better bomb the results would not have been good. Time Square is not safer because they cannot serch ever veh. that enters the city so its only a matter of time until someone pulls in with a truck blows the hell out of a place like time sq.

That's idiotic. I hope you're just attempting a bad joke.


Interestingly enough, it was parked outside Viacom, where they product offensive garbage like South Park and MTV.

It it was a Muslim who did this (it usually is), they're probably mad about some Mohammed jokes on a cartoon. As we saw with the rioting and murders all over Europe a few years ago, a simple comic strip can send millions of them them into riots and killing sprees.

Ahem...

South Park just did a show that dressed Mohammad in a bear outfit so some have made that link. I actually like SP but I would not let my children watch the show.

I didn't even know that. I don't watch it, never will. I just know they're constantly out to offend everyone whether they carry Bibles or bombs. Someday, it could really backfire on them.

That's good because it's not meant for kids, that's why it's on at 10pm

What's wrong with the world when people want to kill someone over a cartoon?

yea, who would actually listen to that crap.




[quote]It it was a Muslim who did this (it usually is), [/quote]

except when it's not.
see McVeigh, Timothy and Stack, Joseph.
of course when the american white guys do it we just call them "disgruntled and angry" or that they just have "some misguided gripes with the government" instead of calling them what they are (Terrorists, yea, i went capital T).

btw, when we invade and demolish another country based on trumped up phoney evidence on WMD and cuz we want regime change, and hundreds of thousands of innocents die in the process, i guess that's just "foreign policy" and not terrorism.
