It is being reported that a car bomb was discovered in Time Square, in New York City,NY. It seems as if the bomb was in the process of detonating, but had malfunctioned. Police were called in and the bomb was neutralized.
It is far too soon to know if this was a case of home-grown terrorism or radical Islamist.
What it does tell us , is that there are people who wish to kill innocent American citizens.
This is the most cowardly act on the face of the planet. To place a device of mass destruction in the center of a city and then to walk away, not knowing or caring who or how many people it will kill, is the lowest act of cruelty. Only the mind of someone who is pure evil could think of, let alone act on such and impulse.
Thank God they were unsuccessful in their attempt. Thank goodness for the men and women with the courage to be a part of the bomb squad.
We must all , as citizens be ever aware of this danger and be ever watchful for such things.
