Okay so recently in the news there was a story about how they found plans for Al Qaeda to attack trains and train tracks all around the country. There was a thread on it a couple days ago.

Al Qaeda threatens trains

At first I was against this idea, because of the odd choice of trains out of every other prospective target, but now there have been at least two reports of incidents on train tracks in the US. I think the only reason why they would be targeted is because they aren't as heavily guarded or regulated as much as airports or many significant sites around the country.

The first was the more alarming of the two, Police in Pennsylvania found an IED near train tracks. Now the timing seems a little too much of a coincidence, I'll agree, but there is always the possibility that this could actually be a legitimate attempt.

The second happened this morning: A train in New Jersey gets derailed and crashes into the platform injuring at least 45 people.

Many are saying its just New Jersey being its same old dumpy self, and that any act of terrorism there would probably be an upgrade to what it is now (
) , others are saying that its just another faked act by our gov't to "justify" more security around the country. I personally am stuck on the border between our government doing this and them being legitimate attacks. I don't think we can rule out any sort of terrorism considering were hated by most of the lol.

This is only my theory and possible questioning about whats going on. Comments and ideas are obviously welcomed, as well as criticism, but don't be a douche!

To me the timing is just too "perfect." I'm afraid it's false-flagsville to implement more control and keep people afraid. How long after the wikileaks stating that there would be blowback if OBL was captured was OBL actually "captured"? A week or two? How long between the info on threatening trains before trains were actually threatened?

To be honest it does to me as well, but I still have an inkling that there might be some truth to it. Either that or stupid kids around the U.S. will "convert" to Islam and start doing it, and no that's not me being a racist.

You realize, of course, that this is exactly what TPTB want: To instill fear in us so that we're easier to control.

Insecure, fearful, and uncertain citizenry are citizenry that are ready to take orders. Don't buy into it. Wait till it resolves itself into something--or into nothing. They want us sitting around second-guessing and fearing what's to come.

Seriously. No g--damn wonder they treat us like children. Dimwitted and fearful children at that....

I don't know about y'all, but I personally could care less about them taking out trains considering I haven't even been on a train in like twenty years. Government or Al Qaeda alike lol...but aren't they the same anyway?
