Bomb Scare New York Macy's [not yet confirmed]

Posted on 12/05/2005 10:35:25 AM PST by varyouga

I'm getting reports from friends and family of a bomb scare in the Macy's on 34th street. People running in the streets and heavy police activity.

No reports yet on the MSM. Let's hope it's not real this time.

Gimbel's?

Now you're dating yourself.

I hope you didn't drive around this weekend trying to find an Alexander's.

If it was real there wouldn't be advance warning, so thankfully this is most likely a hoax.

Gimbel's went out of business in 1987.

I guess if terrorists were bored they could just sit around and call these things in. That is what terrorists do...provide terror.

The Basques and the IRA have a practice of givng advance warnings, not all the time, but certainly some of the time.

no updates yet. Just people getting as far as possible from the building.

A friend of mine lives across the street and her building is being evacuated.

Wasn't that a trademark of the IRA? They would call a few minutes in advance of the explosion so they could then say "not our fault anyone was killed -- we gave advance warning."

Advance notice is not the practice by the "Religion of Peace" followers, however.

The Democrats, angry at the nationwide backlash against their anti-Christmas agenda, now want to rub out the Macy's Santa Claus as a last ditch attempt to destroy Christmas.

In 1993 our first thought about the Trade Center explosion (a buddy and mine - we were there) was that road salt had seeped down to a PATH train transformer. It wasn't until hours later that we knew the truth.

It'll be confirmed when it goes BOOM! BOOM! Until then, authorities are asking all to remain calm.

That fully explains why someone would be pissed off enough to bomb Macy's.
