Explosion at a New York City Recruitment Center

Headline: Explosion at Times Square Recruiting Station

An explosion that the New York City police are saying came from an "improvised explosive device" rocked an Armed Forces Career Center in Times Square early this morning. The bomb detonated in the early hours, and authorities are now investigating ties to similar bombings at the British and Mexican Consulates in 2005 and 2007.

No one was injured in the blast, and Mayor Michael Bloomberg said, "the fact that this was deliberately set is an insult to all of the brave men and women of our armed forces," adding that the perpetrator will be punished to the fullest extent of the law.

I second that Jude. This has angsty, anarchy-lusting American written all over it.

I wouldn't rule out the home-grown variety of terrorism. And I echo the other posters' sentiments in being so glad that no one was hurt.

Wow, this is terrible. Thank goodness no one was hurt, though. I hope they catch whoever did this!

I agree w/ you Nya! But unfortch there are people out there who HATE America and everything that we stand for and they are willing to do anything to hurt our people/armed forces. They are monsters and they don't care if they will be hunted down. If they honestly believe in their "cause" then they will do everything to accomplish the task at hand. That's what makes them so dangerous whoever they are. :IRK:

What i don't get is what satisfaction do you get from blowing innocent people up?? So you blow up a recruiting centre is it worth being the most hunted and reviled person in Ameirca/

I wish these whimps would have the balls to go to a base and pull a stunt like that. If they are against violence then why are they so quick to use it?
