My friends girlfriend is on a trip to NYC and she was in Times Square when this whole thing started. I think it was just a car fire though?
"Police say they removed bomb-making material, including propane tanks, explosive powders and an apparent timing device from a parked SUV."
Thank goodness whoever made that are idiots.
Propane tanks though? that doesn't sound like it'd be very devastating except to people right near the vehicle within like 5 feet. Could have been something more powerfully explosive like ANFO.
Sounds like a volatile situation.
glad no one got hurt but trust me, if you throw one of those small propane tanks into a raging fire, even 100 feet back you can feel the blast of heat.
Sounds like a good excuse to strip individual freedoms!
Whoever tried to bomb Times Square must be mentally eel.
Propane tanks? Well now why would you want propane tanks for...
they're saying there was for sure an explosive device....
How bad could a propane bomb be?
Shit. Glad the maker was an idiot.
Happy to hear it was taken care of.
sooo whats your bet?
muslim or tea party?
We'll have to wait and see whether the perpetrator was coloured in any way before deciding if this is terrorism.
Its suspected that it might be the Muslims that threatend the South Park studios http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/7668606/Times-Square-car-bomb-police-investigate-South-Park-link.html
I highly doubt it, but if I'm wrong, I hope the re-broadcast the episode uncensored.
Let's not blow this out of proportion.
False flag op
Don't you have something else to worry about?
I pretty sure there's something.......
Pakistani Taliban had claimed responsibility for the terrorist threat.
Ah, so terrorists are responsible after all, not white militia.
It says there is no evidence of them being involved.
Probably a case of idiots trying to stake claim to make their cajones appear larger.
Why would they claim responsibility when it failed miserably?
That's what I was wondering. I laughed my ass off at them stuffing the trunk full of fireworks. But what do I know.
I'll have to read the first part again, I was skimming. Raz, I thought they had released a 1 min. video claiming responsibility.
What the hell. They updated it and deleted 90% of the story. I guess there are some factual problems. You can tell the story was rushed and breaking news when you find several typos.
****ing party poopers. they'll probably trace back the vehicle to a camera and see who dropped it off at some point
That doesn't mean they did it though. If they find evidence of it, I'll believe it, but from the sound of it, it seems like they heard something terrorist sounding happened in the states, they wanted to claim responsibility so that we'd believe Islamic radicals can still grip our cities in fear.
I understand. That last part is interesting and I hadn't considered it.
Terrorists need to hire some professionals, like those ones in Iraq and Pakistan who make those car bombs that kill 30 or 40 people.
The suspect is described as a white male in his 40's. Its possible that he could be an jihadist terrorist or he could just be some crazy ticked off guy like the one who flew his plane into the IRS building in austin.
Bomb =/= islamic terrorist.
Yeah that sounds reasonable. Sounds like some idiot who just put all the random explosive crap he could find in a car and tried to set it on fire.
If the suspect is indeed white, then it confirms the stereotype that white people can't make car bombs for shit.
Thats f*ckin racist bro.
Can't accuse me of racism, I am brown.
The IRA were pretty good at it
Why are you so interested in defending islamic terrorists, huh? YOU'RE AN ISLAMIC TERRORIST, HUH?
hes just a brother from another mother!
new pictures and a video finally emerge
Oh so it was a white guy?
The media should really check before describing it as a terrorist attack.
