The commenter (Army Captain Charlie Jaquillard, commander of Army recruiting in Manhattan) says "if this is directed at the troops then..." but what evidence is there for it being directed at troops? The bomb exploded at 3:45 am, so it was not meant to kill anyone. The troops are gone to the middle east. The explosion was a comment about military recruitment. It was directed at what Captain Charlie does for a living, at our government, at our wars of aggression. He is trying to deflect it as an "anti-troop" statement because that spin has worked for our reigning oil-hawks whenever congress tries to stop funding their wars of aggression and resource stealing.

Of course it is necessary for the powers that be to distract us from the intended message. Linking this explosion with "similar" bombings at the Mexican and British consulates is also distraction. There is also an effort to discount the action as vandalism, but it was not painting on a bridge underpass. This was not random kid stuff. This bomb was a message.

I foresee an increase in violent antigovernment action. It will happen because we the people are afraid to speak out, afraid of our own government. It doesn't take much speaking out to get you on the government "List" and then you can't fly without spending extra time getting your luggage swabbed, or worse. Fear drives people to unusual lengths.

I also find it interesting that the bomb planter traveled by bike. Bikes can be very stealthy. I wonder if they will get the bomb-planter by having video of his bike.

Ever wonder...
if the bomb was set off by the Feds? By someone who wanted to scare you into voting for more police-state legislation? By maybe the same guy who set the "ELF" fires out west earlier in the week? All the domestic terrorism this week seems strange in light of the fact that Bush is finally on his way out.

Bet this is an inside job to help shape the election and cram more surveillance legislation down our throats.

Re: Ever wonder...
Or possibly eliminate the election??

A "need" for martial law just before an election would effectively put off the election I would imagine. We wouldn't want to go changing the hands of government when things are so "perilous" right?

Re: Ever wonder...
Yes. This is a real possibility. I halfway expect martial law to be declared whenever it benefits the neocons the most. If they benefitted from inciting violence at home, I have no doubt that they would.

If our choice ends up being between Hillary Clinton and John McCain, the police state will be propagated naturally and there is no need for the feds to blow anything up.

Have you heard at all about what's going on in Berkely? Code Pink has been staged outside of the recruting office there, protesting and doing all sorts of things to try and make the recrutment office go away.

Code Pink scares me, alittle. They are too agro, not very realistic, and don't care to listen to what the other side has to say. We all know that you must know what your enemy really thinks to be able to effectivle fight them.

a map of all the security cameras around Times Square
Thanks for that. I wonder if nationwide there has been some activity at recruitment centers.?

Here's the map:

I had no idea they have such a network of security cameras in that city...so I can only assume that the security is much more extensive than that. I wonder if they caught the grey sweatshirted bicyclist with their security system, or if he got away???

Interesting assessment of Code Pink. I hope that they mature, along with lots of other citizen's groups, into a grassroots with a conscience and a backbone.
