I dont get these threats. They say they have good information about terror attacks on NYC subways in the next 5 days. Then the major says dont worry about it, Im gonna take the subway tommaorw.
They say they have info about a possible attack then tell basically tell us to ride the subway anyway.

Nah Im taking it anyway, but I just dont get the point of telling everyone about the threat. If they really knew there was an attack planned for tommarow I dont think they would let anyone on the subway or maybe not.

I think he's using the Cartman version of "tomarrow"

the reason they even tell about the threat at all is so if it does happen they can say, 'we told you it might happen' and cover their respective asses.

Yea didnt think of that. Anyone know if the soldiers have their M16s loaded that are in the subway? I would think that would not be the firearm of choice in a crowded small space. Or are they just there so "I'll feel safe cause there's a soldier there with a big gun". Like that would help if a terrorist blows himself up down there.

I dont recall hearing that there was a threat?
Link Posted: 10/6/2005 11:41:46 PM EDT
i heard they had 2 sources and something with the subway so they raised the threat level.

If you can live without it, staying off of it for a day or two might not be a bad idea.

After the serin <sp?> attacks a few years ago, I started bringing my gas mask in my pack w/ me on the green/red line into Boston when I had to get to town. People laughed (cow- workers), but I knew if the SHTF I'd be the one with the last laugh!

Be prepared

I would for at least a month. May lose a lot of sleep, but that beats losing your life.

I dont think its going to cover thier ass at all...

in my eyes it makes them look a whole lot worse.... they basically said yea somethings gonna happen... and if it does - that means they didnt do sh*t about it...

i dunno... my 2cents

If you stay off the subway then the terrorists have won. Besides if the goverment made a comment on it, then the terrorists would be a bit STUPID to try at this time with all the eyes and extra security.

Best way to tell if the subway is safe, is to check for
Hare Krishnas.
If you don't see any, run away like your ass is on fire and your head
is starting to catch.

You do realize that the mayor is constantly surrounded by plainclothes detectives at all times on his entire route to City Hall right? Ain't shit happening when he's on the subway.



Ya, when I saw that on the news... "I'm taking the subway tomorrow." I said to the tv... ya with your armed body guards.

Nothings gonna happen tomaori. I don't think they can hit us here anymore.

What better gun to have than one that is highly accurate?

Guardsmen with M-16's; rifles slung, no mag in the weapon, trying to stay awake...............
NYPD officers with M-4's; rifles at the ready on a three point sling,
COCKED, LOCKED & READY TO ROCK!

Also they made the threat public because a newsie got ahold of the story a couple of days ago
and the got him to keep it quiet for about two days. Then they decided they were going to up the
alert level and put on the full court press anyhow (Yankees back in town this weekend also)
so they had to say something.

There is NO WAY i am riding that thing tomorrow!!!!!!
Link Posted: 10/7/2005 4:11:01 AM EDT
I heard all of this on the radio this morning. I ride the Metro into DC everyday. Our threat level hasn't been raised with the news of the NY threat. I think they were last time, though.

I'd probably still ride regardless.
Link Posted: 10/7/2005 4:16:46 AM EDT
First there's this credible threat. Then, all the TV morning shows do live segments from the subway. Talk about giving the ROP's a nationwide audience for an attack.

I fixed it for you

I guess if you want the terrorists to win you shouldn't ride the subway.

... Absolutely not - ride it with your chin up and pride in your stride!
