Last Time events similar to Bosaton? Vanity Question

In light of what appears to be organized bombings I cannot recall multiple bombings like this in many years. When has there been similiar events here in the US?

Exactly similar in the US, I can’t think of one. This reminds me of the London or Madrid bombings.

There was a wave of anarchist bombings in the US in or around 1919. You can look it up. They are pretty much forgotten these days.

I just heard the bombs went off about 2 seconds apart, sounds a bit too sophisticated for a loner to pull off..

Of course I recall OK City & 9-11. :) OK City was one building, one Bomb. These were multiple bombs.
I couldn’t recall multiple bombs since the 70’s. Weather Underground maybe? Fraunces Tavern.

There were three bombs involved in the OKC bombing too. One went off and two didn’t (which supposedly were bigger so I assume the plan was to bring the whole building down) whereas two bombs went off in Boston and one didn’t. Thankfully less people were killed and injured in Boston.

2010
May 1, New York City: a car bomb is discovered in Times Square, New York City after smoke is seen coming from a vehicle. The bomb was ignited, but failed to detonate and was disarmed before it could cause any harm. Times Square was evacuated as a safety precaution. Faisal Shahzad pleads guilty to placing the bomb as well as 10 terrorism and weapons charges.
May 10, Jacksonville, Florida: a pipe bomb explodes while approximately 60 Muslims are praying in the mosque. The attack causes no injuries.
Oct. 29: two packages are found on separate cargo planes. Each package contains a bomb consisting of 300 to 400 grams (11-14 oz) of plastic explosives and a detonating mechanism. The bombs are discovered as a result of intelligence received from Saudi Arabia’s security chief. The packages, bound from Yemen to the United States, are discovered at en route stop-overs, one in England and one in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.
2011
Jan. 17, Spokane, Washington: a pipe bomb is discovered along the route of the Martin Luther King, Jr. memorial march. The bomb, a “viable device” set up to spray marchers with shrapnel and to cause multiple casualties, is defused without any injuries.

Not in the US, but the Islamist terrorist London Bombing in 2005 was four bombs. The 2004 Madrid islamist terror attack was 10 bombs on four trains.

Not in USA - but I thought of this one: http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/blog/2011/jul/22/oslo-explosion-live-coverage

Nothing good comes of it.

Semantics. The explosion of jet fuel is as much a bomb as I can imagine.

When the Weather Underground was blowing up buildings and people in New York, Philadelphia, and Chicago.

Did I mention that BHO’s friends Bernadine Dohrn and Bill Ayers were leaders in the terrorist organization, the Weather Underground?
