Times Square Bombed


Today, in the wee hours of the morning, a bomb went off at a military recruitment center in Times Square, Manhattan. No one was injured.

‘It was the only station that could reject far more recruits than it enlisted — more than 200 a year signed up — and still claim top honors in recruiting circles. And it was the only recruiting station in the country without a bathroom.’

  1. so who did this? i havent read any of the coverage… is anyone heated? are we still supposed to be against terrorism if no-one gets hurt? am i gonna get blacklisted for writing this comment? cause im not going back to guantanamo mayne…

  2. “The police said the explosive device involved in the Times Square blast this morning was “roughly similar” to the devices used in two earlier bombings at foreign consulates in Manhattan, in 2005 and 2007, Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly said at an afternoon news conference. The device had been placed in an ammunition box like the kind that can be bought at a military supply store. Officials said that in today’s attack, a man bundled in a gray hooded jacket or sweatshirt was seen riding a bicycle around the recruiting station moments before the explosion. Subways and traffic are running normally through Times Square.”

    My guess would be some nutter trying to make a huge statement by blowing up a US military site in the epicenter of the Western world. Oh the significance. It’s so deep… except the incident has received very little press.

  3. so are we sure it was an amerikan? how come nobody gives it no press? i mean… someboddy blows up the torres jimelos and we invade two countries, and now this happens and nobody does shit??

    nah but being serious tho… we’re supposed to be fighting a war against “terror”, and this seems to me like a textbook case of terrorism (an act meant not to harm individuals but to invoke fear and anxiety and force people to scrutinize whatever symbol is being targeted)… and how do you bundle a man in a sweatshirt(no homo)?
