BREAKING: Train Derailment in NYC Kills 4, Injures 60 ...Is It Islamic Terror?

It is guaranteed that some left wing pussy will come on this blog and object to me jumping to conclusions regarding the title of this post but in regards to the train derailment in the Bronx this morning, one simply cannot ignore that Islamic terror groups have been focusing on train attacks for months.  I truly hope that this "accident" is investigated with terror in mind.

The story comes from USA Today.



Train derailment kills 4 in NYC


NEW YORK - Four people were killed and more than 60 were injured Sunday when a Metro-North commuter train derailed in the Bronx.

The Fire Department of New York also said about 50 units and 135 firefighters were at the derailment location just north of the Spuyten Duyvil station working to get passengers and crew out of the train.

Five of the southbound train's seven cars derailed in an area along the Hudson River and Sputen Duyvil just north of Manhattan, according to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

The seven-car train originated at 5:54 a.m. in Poughkeepsie, one of New York City's northern suburbs, according to the MTA. The derailment forced a suspension of all service on the MTA's Hudson line between Grand Central Station in Manhattan and the Croton Harmon station in Westchester County, a northern suburb.

The New York City Police Department declared a "level-three mobilization" -- a somewhat-common alert for a serious incident -- sending officers from across the Bronx to the derailment scene.

The Associated Press, quoting a woman at the scene, initially said that some cars of the Metro-North passenger train toppled into water. Edwin Valero told AP he was in an apartment building above the accident scene when the train derailed. He said none of the cars went into the water where the Harlem River meets the Hudson, but at least one ended up a few feet from the edge.

Spuyten Duyvil is a neighborhood in the Bronx. Metro-North's Hudson line serves New York City and Westchester, Putnam, and Dutchess counties, ending in Poughkeepsie.

The Metro-North noted the incident on its website with a note that "Hudson Line Customers will experience indefinite delays south of Croton Harmon. More information will be provided as it is obtained."

Service on the line was initially suspended from Poughkeepsie to Grand Central Station. Later Sunday morning the commuter rail service said rail service was restored from Poughkeepsie to Tarrytown. Passengers would then take buses to the White Plains station on the Harlem line, where they would catch trains to and from Grand Central Station.

A bit of background about the place called Spuyten Duyvil, from my NY childhood. According to a story by Washington Irving, when NY was the Dutch colony of New Amsterdam, a man decided to swim across the Harlem River, saying that he would do so "en spuyt den Duyvil", or "in spite of the devil". Sounds like "Spuyten Duyvil" was derived from this.

Wouldn't they be gloating right about now? If it was a terrorist attack?

Predicting events and who's responsible for them is a business best left for snake oil salesmen.

The Spain derailment was incorrectly predicted to be the work of Al-Qaeda. Perhaps you're wrong about this one too.

It gives much wanted media exposure to the jihadists to attribute every occurring accident to an omnipotent like power that they claim to have.

Terrorists crave the spotlight. Don't give it to them by over zealously pointing the finger to a bunch of militarily limited groups and make their prowess seem unlimited.

Report on their losses and impotence. Not on matters they have no will or control over but would bee much like to. You're doing their propaganda work for them.

Yes it will be investigated deeply, and if it will be proven to be a terror attack, BArry Oliar will give the Muslims a pass Count on it

How will he give them a pass? When the Underwear bomber was apprehended and his connection to Yemen made clear it was the incumbent administration that upped the tempo of the drone strikes in that country that eventually took out Anwar Al-Awlaki. Not to mention Fahd Al- Quso one of the masterminds of The USS Cole bombing in October 2000.

When the Times Square bomber was apprehended it was again the incumbent Administration that upped the tempo of Drone Strikes that took out Sayed Al Masri, AQ's #3. Three weeks after the plot failed.

So let's just say you're right. That's its a terrorist attack. Let's even say its AQAP. Al-Qaeda's most sophisticated and deadly branch. How will Obama give them a pass exactly? And what if his response is a series of leadership decapitating strikes on AQAP? Is that giving them a pass as well?

I'm all for decapitation of terror leadership. But what if this was an accident due to say, decaying infrastructure? Will we be so adamant that the issue is resolved? As adamant as we are about knowing with full certainty before the facts are in that it's a terrorist attack?

My Dear Anonymous we have seen repeatedly such as in teh holy land trial certain Domestic muslim groups with direct links to terror getting free passes for some time. Osama Buin laden was a very high priority person who no president could let pass, so Barry orfdered teh hit he did not kill Bin laden as he personally claims. In his book Dreams of my father he posits. If the winds of pilitics change , He will come down on teh side of teh Muslims. m Perhaps that explains why he trew ISrael under the buss and lied to her so many times. Barry o liar got a deal with IRAN. not MUCH OF A DEAL BUT IT SURE GIVES iRAN WHAT IT WANTS WHILE DOING EXACTLY ZERO TO STOP THEIR MARCH TO NUKES. bARRY IS BOUGHT AND PAID FOR . whY IS IT HE ALLOWS A PERSON WITH PROVEN CONNECTIONS TO TERROR TO BE PART OF dhs ADVISOR? i OFTEN ASK MYSELF WHY . nope bARRY HAS SOLD OUT , mUSLIMS HAVE BEEN DOING SHIT INM THE USA THAT WOULD GET THEM JAIL IN OTHER COUNTRIES BUT HEY WHAT DO I KNOW?

APLOGIES FOR CAPS BUT MY KEYBOARD IS STUCK ON CAPS NOT SHOUTING

Either way he has ramped up the drone program. Eliminating some very senior enemy leaders. Giving them a pass for domestic attacks does not add up. Every failed plot has had a punishing response by CIA drones. And the President, any President gives the final say so to the CIA.

What's also alarming is that should it be a case of decaying infrastructure, nobody seems to bat an eyelid over it.

We should think that people in the train are very fortunate that only four people died in such a terrible accident.
