Police: IED Found Near Chester Train Tracks

Chester police are urging vigilance after they found an improvised explosive device, this afternoon, near Amtrak and Septa railroad tracks and the Commodore Barry Bridge. 

Police say the device consisted of two bottles with a yellow liquid inside. They say one had a timer and wires attached by duct tape.

Police were not sure if the device was really explosive but evacuated the area as a precaution. The Delaware County bomb squad determined that it was and disarmed it.

I bet some people will say it's some kind of retaliation from Al-CIAda... but come on. Real Al-CIAda members would have more dedication than that. They would do suicide bombings, car bombings, shootings...

Were these ``bottles`` really explosives in the first place? Were they really dangerous? Who found them?

And even if they were, since the bottles were found, I don't think we have to worry about the people who did it since they seem to be unable to even hide their device.

And if it was a timer on there... the bomb is gonna explode when the timer is up... which could be when there's no one around or no train around... which basically means an explosion that hurts no one or destroys nothing.

Could be by the "movement" of Al Queda...or people who are inspired by them but not necessarily apart of them..I guess if that makes sense.

Likely just a couple of guys pissed in a bottle.

Yellow liquid....

Well after receiving my PHd in criminology from Harvard, and a Masters in Chem engineering from Cal tech, and after 15 years investigating tactics of terrorists...

I can clearly conclude... 2 bottles with yellow liquid inside by the train tracks.. with obviously put there by a bearded man. He might of been muslim... but he was most likely bum who couldn't find an outhouse.

Yes...because every act of hate and anarchy always leads back to a non-existent group of fanatics.

the governments planted the seed when they claimed to had gotten train intel from "supposed" binladens hide out.
now they are going to milk that monkey for all its worth.

if someone was going to blow up and derail a train, don't you think the train would be blown up and derailed????

serious terrorists aren't going to have their plots foiled by silly police

this is all part of the Psy-Op
to keep the masses afraid.

Are you afraid ???

2 things I'd like to mention

the white powder letters hitting DC this past week
were all sent from Dallas.

this IED attack happened in Philly.

Is there a common denominator ??

Yes !!!

Both Dallas and Philly have FBI
Regional Field Offices which act as
operational centers under DHS.

You do the math

The use of fear to further your agenda is highlighted in Rule 9 of Saul Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals" - primer for the aspiring community organizer, BHO and Hilary Clinton.

RULE 9: "The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself." Imagination and ego can dream up many more consequences than any activist. (Perception is reality. Large organizations always prepare a worst-case scenario, something that may be furthest from the activists' minds. The upshot is that the organization will expend enormous time and energy, creating in its own collective mind the direst of conclusions. The possibilities can easily poison the mind and result in demoralization.)

The world truly is run by sociopaths.

I'm thinking it was a diversion to conceal the real demolitions hidden away.

Most of the time they want eyes on target to know they are getting the most bang for their buck.

Problem: bottles by a train track.

Solution: TSA Scanners at every train station.

Result: more $$$$ for the friends and retired members of the Mil.Ind.Complex

Privatise the profit, and keep the debt for the Public to pay.

Damn it! I was sooo hoping the intel about attacking U.S. trains, was premature; or, maybe rough plans for a distant future time that would may have been thwarted by the

UGH! My DH, children, and I are traveling next week; by train, for a family wedding. Chicago to New York, round-trip.

So, if anything happens to any trains on that route before May 16th, please think of us!
