The posts were in different forums, that's okay, as far as I understand.

For whatever reason, this was the more popular one.

Seriously these "terrorists" fail..badly

So what's the score now?

USA 9001 - Terrorists 2 ?

What a waste of $10 trillion

Either a drill, someone playing a joke, a distracting false flag attempt, an actual attempted terrorist attack (what a shock..they finally tried something..i thought they were exterminated)

Regardless... a lot of unrest worldwide atm

Latest terror watch is Delhi.

however islamic goatf*****s did threaten to attack South park creators.. and it was outside comedy knows

Funny though how Karma comes back to haunt them.. the americans funded the IRA scum for years when they attacked our soldiers,pubs,theaters,civilians etc.. hell i was in Manchester when the bomb went off in 1996 i was 5 years old...miracle no one died although hell of a lot of damage and thing to happen to Manchester though as it looks better now than before.

anyway back on topic..

I have no remorse for them if it did go off.. that's 1 car bomb big deal us Brits have had to put up with it for decades.

Here we go again.

Illegals, oil spills and car bombs, oh my!

Not buying it. Or maybe I am, I just can't figure it out yet.

It just seems awfully like a dog-pile of problems meant to distract us, divide us or worry us.

I dunno, maybe this is the end result of 18 months of economic decline and systemic collapse - a spiraling out of control. But, as always, I feel the need to ask - "who benefits?"

Additionally, really going all CT on you guys, I read this:

"The last month of peace, as in other wars, has an almost palpable air of crisis about it. Incidents, accidents, small disasters add to the tension."

In the your post there are some that mention VIACOM and CC located at the other side of the street.. but our news reporters got the news that it was parked in front the bank of America? is this true ? or are our sources wrong?

The Viacom building is enormous and has several street-level shops in it, including a small Bank of America branch.

Here's the Google Street View of the bank right next to the main entrance to the Viacom building.. The bank branch is the storefront with the words "One Good Turn Deserves Another" over it. The Viacom main entrance is under the Rocawear sign. Pan up to see just how big the Viacom building is...that's ALL Viacom.

I did find it odd he reference Pennsylvania as the place to get commercial grade fireworks. Other states offer them also. Maybe a slip f evidence on his part, maybe just a gereralization.

He just doesn't want to admit that you can go down to Chinatown in NYC and buy them illegally just as easily as anywhere. Just ask around a bit for fireworks and you'll find someone selling...if they don't think you're cops.

To admit that would be to admit he isn't policing the city properly.

In fairness to Bloomberg, he doesn't wear them normally. He was at a huge black tie function in Washington when this happened, the White House Correspondents Dinner, and flew up directly back to NYC when news came of the attack.

Local news here is reporting it as a "large" improvised explosive device including propane tanks, gasoline tanks, black powder and a timing device. Glad I was not down there tonight...

Edit to add: 3 propane tanks, 2 or 3 gasoline tanks, unknown amount of black powder. Somebody was certainly not up to any good in that neighborhood.

Location was on the block of where the Lion King plays, and NYPD is now scouring the area for other vehicles that may also contain IEDs.

My hope is that this was some lone nutjob and not part of a coordinated attack. Best wishes to our law enforcement officers on the scene taking care of business.

How do any of you know that this is true, you "believe" the MSM!!!!!

PLEASE, for the love of man, stop listening to these a-hole idiots and understand what the agenda IS!!!

THIS again is all BS, PROVE IT!!! Show me all the crap and that some nutball left it there. I believe and smell a set-up just like all the other false flag crap!!!

Cry Wolf again!!!!

Am I the only jaded one who finds that so ironically convenient? If the bomb did explode, no one of any real importance would be around to be inconvenienced by the chaos. Plus the added bonus of not being anywhere near the scene of the crime.

Ya, I know, I'm bitter.

Is New York City the only town or city in the USA that allows the Mayor to do press conferences about a crime and talk to reporters, Is there any other city that let the Mayor talk about a major crime to reporters?

posted on May, 2 2010 @ 09:29 AM
Here is what I know:
1) With everything they are reporting was in the car this morning it was set to be a bomb. You really do not have canisters of gas, propane and other flamables in the area, and not call the authorities when it starts to smoke.
2) The liscence plate does not match the vehicle, so both are stolen.
3) They are calling it a terrorist attack.
Now the question is who and why. There are 4 possibilities:
1) Islamic Extremists, as the nature of this does match what has been done before.
2) Illegale immigrants, trying to make a statement. As the person was seen running away and they have no clue as to who it was, and no description has been released.
3) Some disgruntled american citizen. There are a lot of fringe elements that I have no doubt that would do such.
4) One of the numerous countries that do not like the US.

As opposed to just a "bomb"?

Because you know we have civilian police "bomb squads" for that. Whereas "large" improvised explosive device sound like a war zone and (gasp!) we need the military. [/sarcasm]

From “Car Fire” To Foiled Homegrown Terrorism: MSNBC Changes Their Story on the Black SUV Once the Politicians Got Involved

Link to article

Willyloman monitored this story from the beginning and suspecting that it would suddenly become a "terror attack," made copies of the news releases as they happened.

I can tell you right now, I lived in Manhattan for about 6 years and I actually worked on Gansevoort St. right across from a warehouse that the hot-dog and bagel venders kept their carts in. Every day at about 6-7 pm, these SUVs would show up, over and over again, towing the big stainless steel hot-dog carts. The venders used SUVs because they could also carry supplies and were lockable (as opposed to an open bed pick-up truck). The hot-dog carts use propane tanks as fuel to keep the hot-dogs warm. The SUVs would drop off the carts and run off real quick to go get others from their various locations around the city. The reason they had gas cans in the SUVs is because they drove around so much in Manhattan traffic, they needed the emergency gasoline in case they got stuck in a traffic jam. As far as the “black metal box” that resembled a gun-locker is concerned, that’s a cash box, a lockable cash box they use to keep cash in… not hard to figure out.

Even the clock with a wire attached to it is easy to figure out. Many of these venders used by the companies to man these carts are dirt-poor, many of them working for 2 or 3 dollars and hour, if that, off the books. They just came to the country, legally or not, they are being taken advantage of, and some might not even have a watch. So what the cart pick-up guy with the SUV has to do if they don’t have a watch is leave a clock with them so that they can start to prep the cart before he returns to pick them up. If they aren’t ready to go when the pick-up guy gets there, then that throws the timing all off. That costs money. So what they do is leave a cheap alarm clock with the vendor if he doesn’t have a watch and it has a piece of wire on it which they can use to fix the clock to the umbrella stand.

Even the illegal aspect of the SUV fits this theory.

There are a lot of illegal cars in the big city. Vehicle insurance for a hot-dog vending company in New York City must cost a fortune so they pay insurance on a couple of legal cars to make it all look legit, but in reality they need more pick-up vehicles than they can afford to pay insurance on. So… they “contract’ some of the guys to use their own vehicles, where-ever they get them, and they have to provide assurances they have insurance. So, an industrious new immigrant decides to stop standing around a smelly hot-dog cart all day and he “acquires” an SUV so he can move up the company ladder.

I noticed that several other members had mentioned this as a possibility so well done to you all.

my honest opinion on this is that if it were a terror attack, we failed! but it wasn't a terrorist attack. because we recovered the "device." therefor, to me, it was a publicity stunt, because if the terrorists got that close, it would have gone off.

I like to mention about this story compare to the failed attempt to take down the plane in December in Detroit, if I remember correctly back in December they thought fire crackers were involved as well and now last night they mention fire crackers were involved....

Coincidence or not about the two stories

since your a brit...this is off subject, but relatable, i have been watching on the telly a BBC production called MI-5. it is one of the most entertaining, and at the same time thought-provoking show that i have seen over here in america. they bash the CIA continuely, and their story lines are right out of the front pages of newspapers. the "crime" dramas here in america are so lame compared to the MI-5 show. the double-crosses, government betrayals, offing of lead charecters, and even references to a group of "world controllers" keeps the show moving quickly. i watch it every saturday from 9pm to 11pm out here in california, and for me anyway, it is a much more "realistic" portrayal of the world we live in.

I'm camping for one night and then there's a car boom threat? What happened? Can someone feel me in on the latest details.

For all of you claiming this is a false flag or failed attempted false flag... Did any of you stop to think that maybe, just maybe, it was a lunatic with a grudge against Comedy Central?

To one of the previous posters bring up the IRA and how you have no remorse for the bomb that could have gone of in Times Square, you are a sick son of a B. Truly a sick twisted B.

The whole false flag claim is moronic. Our government can't even coordinate a session of congress. Do you really think they are smart enough to do this?
