Controlled detonation was abandoned clothing.

The bomb itself is sounding very much like a "nail bomb" ... poor people.

I'm shocked that it took until page 16 for someone to blame Trump.


I am surprised he didn't get blamed for doing it personally.



I'm surprised that you guys are still trying to play the Proxy Victim Angle once again.

CNN just brought-up a good point.

If we assume reports are correct and this person/persons were turned away at the security check point, security did their job and it could have been much worse if the explosives were able to get inside the venue.


There a couple of reports that it was a suicide bomber that was indeed stopped from getting in.. who knows at this point whether that is true.




At least 19 people were killed and about 50 others were injured in a suspected suicide bombing Monday night after an Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena in England, authorities said.


www.cnbc.com...

More than just a couple.

When your listening to witnesses on the news being interviewed they are asked some stupid questions and say some stupid stuff.

ie. reporter: "it must have been terrifying".... duh.

Just a small point of positivity in all this, for whatever it's worth.

There was no second device - being reported that it was a false identification.
3 sources now saying a suicide bomber

I mentioned this also earlier in thread, it was mentioned on the Radio from a caller, this BRAVE and SELFLESS SOUL has prevented further devastation

And to all who want to circle jerk over IS, A high number of Manchetser cabs are Asian, they are offering lifts to safety for FREE, we can stand together, evil is just that, it will pervert any mind regardless of heritage

Well we have a thread about that. About journalists drinking too much coffee or something making them dumb.

I also never understood the insatiable need reporters have to shove a microphone into the face of people who just suffered unimaginable tragedy (father who dug through bodies of victims looking for family) and then ask them how that felt ...

If so, I think yes.. trying to think back.
EDIT : Actually 7/7 was carried out by suicide bombers and possibly another incident in Manchester a few years ago.

It's why I don't listen to them. Most of 'em don't know what happened, other than that "something" happened.

Nor do the idiots on the back end of the cameras. Take what is said with a block of salt.

Bag of clothes. But secondary device is becoming a standard practice.
Targeting crowds of panicking people trying to escape or responders going in.

Bad.

This is really horrible. This was primarily just an attack on kids. Teens and Young Adults. I imagine some serious backlash from this.

Is today meaningful in any way?? Like the date?? Or has there been any statements by anyone claiming responsibility yet or giving a reason for this or anything???

An on scene reporter for BBC brought up a good (well sick actually) point that the bomb went off in an area where people pool after concerts to buy merchandise and is no longer controlled by pat down because the event is over.

ETA It reminds me of the Marathon bombing, targeting the finish line because there would such a large concentration of people there.

That is one way disinformation gets spread and feeds conspiracies before we get the facts.

9/11 is a great example.

You don't say. Now let's argue for 10 pages about who and another 20 on why.
