Bombing brings the war home!

History just repeats it self over and over again. In the 1960s and 1970s there were organizations that promised to “bring the war home to the streets of America.” The Weather underground and the Symbionese Liberation Army did just that. They relied on Focoism which has proven to be a failed tactic; however when it comes to shaking the establishment to its roots and proving that we, as a nation, are not invincible, the case has been made with the bombing of a Manhattan New York recruiting station. No one was hurt, indicating it was a local group and not Islamic.

However, in a country with a government that has told us that the Iraq war keeps the terrorists in the Middle east, this should be a wake up call. No… as long as we make enemies, we will not be safe.

All I can say to our president and thief is:

HA HA HA!

While police are calling this bomb a pipe-bomb, because it has gunpowder in a metal
container, the people from my generation would call this a can grenade.

Latest Update, 2:15 p.m. | The police said the explosive device involved in the Times Square blast this morning was “roughly similar” to the devices used in two earlier bombings at foreign consulates in Manhattan, in 2005 and 2007, Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly said at an afternoon news conference. The device had been placed in an ammunition box like the kind that can be bought at a military supply store. Officials said that in today’s attack, a man bundled in a gray hooded jacket or sweatshirt was seen riding a bicycle around the recruiting station moments before the explosion. Subways and traffic are running normally through Times Square. (See related slide show.)
