No sure if this topic should be in Skunk, but ill put it here anyway... Feel free to scrutinize fellow ATS members.
My oppinion on May 2nd 2010, failed New York Bombing...
I 'think' that it may just be an American homegrown terrorist.
I know the media are now saying that there is no Al-queda/Pakistani Taliban link (despite the media previously finding an Islamic site claiming
responsibility!) and this may be turned around as a - ''Joseph Andrea Stack'' (fella who flew that plane into a building in Texas) type of
attack/vendetta on modern society or just in Hatered towards the American Tax system.
But obviously yesterdays attack took place using a Jeep.
Then like I mentiond in an earlier topic, the attack method is a similar method of attack on Glasgow Airport in 2007 when a pair of Extremists drove a
Jeep, full of propane cans and petrol tanks into the building in an apparent suicide attack.
The only diffrence is that maybe this attacker didnt want to make a martyr of their selfs, and actually came to their sense's that killing people is
So, if it is home grown, take into concideration where the attack was.
In New York.
In Times Square.
The cross-roads of the world!
Its a symbol of New York to the outside world.
An Iconic Landmark.
Now whats based around Time Square..?
As Wikipedia even says when you type in Times Square -
"There is a High Number of Financial, Publishing and Media firms that have headquarters in the Area."
Whats to say this failed attack went wrong not just as an act of conscious, but stupidity on the Terrorists behalf.
(Which is a relief!)
How many threads have we seen here about a suspected attack?
Is it peoples paranoia or is it actually Goverment Psy'ops?
If it is Psyops, then, is this a precursor to a savage attack or an excuse to place more restrictions on America?
Or does it just cloud peoples Judgement more..? A goverment slight of hand if you will.
Also, as an after thought, there was an attack on March the 6th 2008 on Times Square.
An attack on an Army Recruitment office.
And- although they were debunked, the Letters sent to Democrat's, suspectedly from a Hoaxer.
But what if it wasnt?
Could this have been some attempted Anti-war statement gone wrong?
The bomb used in that Attack was homemade.
And from statements made by the press as well as the Mayor of New York, they all said that the device was amateurish...
So would that point the blame at 9/11 Truthers?
We can even debate about the aspect of the Attack. Its instilled that perception of Fear again, making the public realise Terrorism still happens.
Plus this would have been cheaper to stage.
Although, bet the terrorist payed an arm and a leg for the gas/petrol....
