    Ummmmm.....too early to say? Speculation without evidence is fruitless.

    The same people who killed the census worker in Tennessee.

    By the way, MOD, this is one of your dumbest surveys, to date.

    Not your most intelligent post either dear...

    Now, do you want to speculate on who may possibly be behind the car bomb, or do you want to make useless responses to threads you think are dumb?

    The purpose of this thread, peoples, is to invite speculative guessing. I thought it was obvious that we don't know the culprit yet, but apparently not to everyone. lol...

    Re: Who is behind the New York Times Square car bomb?

    Just looking at the type of explosives they tried to use, and the failed detonation this has the hallmarks of a homegrown terrorist attempt.
    Firstly its extremely amateurish, a hodgepodge of different types of explosives: fireworks, black powder, propane tanks, and NO shrapnel around the explosives.
    None of these are particularly explosive and probably won't do much damage, in fact the SUV these were packed it would probably do more to contain the explosion than expand it. A propane tank would probably make more of a fire ball than dangerous explosion, the fireworks and black powder would do the same. Especially if the propane or fireworks were ignited first, it would blow the black powder for a split second and reduce its effectiveness.
    If the the goal of this was to kill people it would have been built differently, or it means the bomb makers dont know what they are doing.

    Additionally, all overseas terrorists that have come to this country have been suicide attackers, this guy ran from the vehicle after he planted it. Also most IEDs in Iraq and Afghanistan these days aren't timed bombs, they are built with triggers so they can be set off at any time. I keep with IED attacks and disarmed bombs through the Army and timed explosives are very very uncommon.

    Lastly homegrown terrorists tend to be more concerned about their lives than Afghan, Pakistanis, or AQ in general. If this was someone from overseas it would have almost certainly been a suicide bomber. Its also unlikely that someone sent a bomb maker to the US, those people are valuable and most are trained and experienced in converting military explosives into IEDs, not propane tanks and fireworks.

    I don't know anything other than open source but in my experience and education this says homegrown terrorist, I could even see this as someone without a terrorist agenda.

    I agree, it was incredibly amateurish.
    The safety valve on propane tanks make them difficult to explode, if at all.

    Re: Who is behind the New York Times Square car bomb?

    This is what an exploding propane tank looks like: You can see most of the energy and heat is expended going upward not out, and only lasts for a split second. If you were standing right next to it, you might be burned some but in no way killed unless it was a huge amount of propane.


    And this is what the canister looks like, the entry and exit points of my bullet are peeled back, but otherwise the canister is in tact, meaning the explosion created no shrapnel.



    BTW, ignore that goofy ass look on my face...
