Explosion in Times Square

by @ Thursday, March 6th, 2008. Filed under Military, News

By now, I am certain that everyone has heard about the bombing of a military recruiting station in Times Square.  My instincts tell me that this was caused by some of the peaceful anti-war demonstrators about whom we hear so much.  This thought is given some weight due to the increasing number of anti-military actions [...]
