NY TIMES SQUARE TERRORIST, GOT SO CLOSE BUT FOR PROVIDENCE?
Once again mother luck intervened and saved America from another terrorist induced disaster, from a likely home-grown domestic terrorist, whose bomb laden truck packed in Times Square New York, was timely found and diffused before it could wreck havoc in the Big Apple's foremost landscape. Icheoku condemns unequivocally this brazen act of terror on American soil, New York, and pray that the animal that thought and executed this madness will be caught and very soon to face the full weight of the law?
It was only last December 25, 2009 as Americans prepared to celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ that the other scraggy-arsed Nigerian diaper-bomber, made a futile attempt to ignite his underwear-laden bomb to blow away a Delta Airline plane with many American vacationing citizens. The Nigerian terrorist diaper-bomber had consummated his terrorist act when he completed his terrorist-training in Yemen, planned the bombing run, wore his diaper-bomb and boarded an American bound plane and was descending into an American City of Detroit when he ignited his payload. As luck would have it, a passenger caught him and subdued him before he could cause further damage. The rest as they say is now history.
Now less than four months into that Christmas day attempted nightmare over Detroit, another terrorist has breached our security and planted a bomb-laden Nissan Pathfinder Sports Utility Vehicle in New York's Times Square? As with the Christmas day diaper-bomber, this Times Square SUV bomber had completed the terrorist act, planned it, built his bomb and drove the bomb-laden truck from wherever warehouse he/they put their contraption together (Jack Bauer's 24 highly instructive) and into Time-Square. He triggered the timing detonation mechanism and abandoned the truck before a New York City police-officer was alerted of some smoke coming from a packed truck and the bomb was diffused. The rest is now also history as his manhunt begins in all earnesty; mother-luck again was once again on the side of the good guys and saved us from another calamitous terrorist mayhem in New York City. What a double tragedy it would have been had this lunatic terrorist killer succeeded in unleashing his terror on New York, coming less than a decade after the September 11, 2000 World Trade Center, just four miles away.
Icheoku asks, what happened to all the much touted security condone and networks which supposedly envelope our country's big cities, when such a sinister SUV could be sneaked under our noses into Times Square; admitted that many of such attempts, both the announced and the unannounced, were probably thwarted in the past? But like they say within security circles, we have to always get it right all the time and there is no chance for error or to be wrong, not for once, not anytime? Regrettably, this animal choose to sneak his deadly cargo into Times Square while the country and the White House was grappling with the oil spill in the gulf of Mexico? What a double whammy it would have been for our President Barack Obama who is yet to take a real break from work for quite some time now, due to so many issue converging at the same time and urgently pleading for his attention. The fact that the Republican Party of "NO" is unappreciative of his effort and not helping matters with their partisan zealotry and criticism of the president must be giving the president some hiccups too? Being a tourist season and in one of the tourists mecca of the world, Times Square, compounded the matter much more as probable causalities and destruction would have damped the spirit of New Yorkers and forced many people to stay away; similar to the experience the city had immediately after 9/11. But as God would have it, the hateful beast is an uneducated amateur who thought every fertilizer is a bomb grade fertilizer; and lacking in proficiency with electronics, his contraption instead of gradually timing itself out to detonation, started exhuming smoke? Who says God has forsaken America, the God's only own country, considering that there is no other better place on earth for God to call home?
Gladly we have some of the finest forensic experts in the world and Icheoku strongly believes it will be a matter of days before this Timothy McVeigh of Times Square is ensnared and brought to justice. Most likely he left a lot of clues and tale-tail signs including finger prints and trails; from the vehicle which did not "completely obliterate" as he had expected, to chemical signature of the fertilizer, receipts of purchase of those gas tanks, timing devices etc which would all assist lead investigators to the suspect? The vehicle in particular has paper works through the DMV and a chain of custody of its ownership and possession could easily be traced back to whoever drove that SUV into Times Square. Possibly this domestic terrorist would be found dead of suicide with a gunshot wound to his head; but find him, the agents would and within a very short time.
Who is not tired of these urchins who think their problem is such that the whole world has to stand still until they are solved; blowing and attempting to blow up people and things? Icheoku definitely is; likewise many other decent people of the world, and we urge us all to remain vigilance as these marauders are not taking any break from seeking out ways to harm us all. Please does anyone really know what it is that drives such hate in these spineless cowards that fuels their disdain for humanity and modernity that they would rather blow them to pieces? Blowing up Times Square is not a crime against only America as it serves as a convergence for all the peoples of the world that someone from the perpetrator's city or country of origin was possibly milling around Times Square at the time he abandoned his deadly cargo within that vicinity and could have been hurt or even killed? Anyone who is tired of living, should just go jump off; but please spare the rest of the fun-loving world their transferred misery by trying to take lives which they did not create. No justification whatseover is enough to cause such grand-scale destruction and these repeated attempts to taint President Obama's security credentials will not work. These imbeciles are trying in vain to bring about a circumstance which will appear as if those securing our safety under the Obama administration are not up to their game. Enough terrorists, domestic, Middle Eastern and others, whatever be your grievances; just give President Barack Obama time to sought things out and resolve whatever it is that fuels such your hatred for a peaceful and happy humanity! Until then, Icheoku says, maybe parking in and around the vicinities of Times Square should be outlawed to deny such murderous urchin and his likes the real estate to plant their terror SUVs in the future.
