5 suspects were arrested for trying to bomb a Cleveland-area bridge. The suspects have attended Occupy Cleveland meetings in an attempt to recruit supporters but Occupy Cleveland has denounced the plot and attempts at violence.



This isn't a terribly 'interesting' story in terms of political discussion, but I think it needs to be recognized nonetheless. There are some crazy people out there.

Ugh. Now this proves my point about these OWS types being dangerous.

Quote from:   Martha Gellhorn for The Atlantic 1961
The unique misfortune of the Palestinian refugees is that they are a weapon in what seems to be a permanent war...today, in the Middle East, you get a repeated sinking sensation about the Palestinian refugees: they are only a beginning, not an end. Their function is to hang around and be constantly useful as a goad. The ultimate aim is not such humane small potatoes as repatriating refugees.

Ron Paul supporters ?

Doubtful. They attended Occupy Cleveland meetings and while they had considered the Cleveland Fed Branch as a target, much of their anger was directed at corporations and businesses as well. It is certainly possible that they were Ron Paul supporters, but it doesn't seem to match their outlook all that well.

I can almost assure you that these dudes did this because:

1) The CIA gave them a bunch of explosives, taught them how to use them and then arrested them. Thus the CIA can celebrate "catching terrorists."

2) Their D&D club broke up in a viscous dispute over who would be "games master." These five fellows were on the losing end (they all played as warrior elfens) and decided to instead play the game The Saboteur on PS3. Knowing that the "games master" who defeated their group in the power struggle had to use this bridge to get to his job at the Office Depot these anarchists decided to use the skills learned through The Saboteur to deathly effect. Oh, but the defeat was bitter.

3) The guy with the beard works at Game Stop and grew bored discussing how angry he was that the new Assassin's Creed was not taking place in feudal Japan. He walked into a used bookstore located in the mini-mall complex he works and picked up The Anarchist Cookbook because he liked the design of the book's cover. In reading this book he changed his political opinions from "none...but willing to be a liberal if it can get me laid" to "ANARCHIST!" His four other friends were easily converted to anarchism because of the cool black flags and the fact that they thought being an anarchist would piss of their dad and help them meet sexy European women anarchists. Alas, this was not to be their lot. Their attempt to blow up the bride was as unsuccessful as the first eight attempts to kill the Archduke on 28 June 1914. However, these five anarchists firmly remember why they fight. "For the wretched of the earth/there is a flame that never dies/even the darkest night will end/and the sun will rise!"

That's my take, anyway.

And you think this is a bad thing? If some one provides some one else with a "bomb" and the second person attempts to blow up a bridge- is that person NOT a terrorist? And is it not better to have them attempt terror by using fakes which can't hurt a soul then to just wait and see them try the real deal?

Well, I guess technically there is nothing all that wrong with the CIA giving explosives to people and telling them to use them and then arresting them. However, is it not kind of a waste of the CIA's time?

It is a method to identify terrorists in a manner which does not risk the safety of the public... let's say these anarchists went to a different black market arms dealer who wasn't undercover FBI and were able to purchase genuine explosives...people would have likely been killed
As it was- no one was ever in any danger

Blowing up the bridges and then rebuilding them all would be excellent economic policy, however.

He may as well be. He has definitively established himself as a joke poster with that post, so I'd guess he's about at the level of most mass media pundits.

The broken window theory of economic development is bunk.

Well, obviously it isn't, but your objection is beside the point since the bridges are already 'broken' by wear and tear.
