Military Recruiting Post Bombed

Could this be the next level in the Left-wing attacks on our troops, as we've recently seen occurring in Berkeley California? From Yahoo/AP:

An explosive device caused minor damage to an empty military
recruiting station in Times Square early Thursday, shaking guests in hotel rooms
high above "the crossroads of the world."...

Witnesses staying at a
Marriott hotel four blocks away said they could feel the building shake with the
blast. "I was up on the 44th floor and I could feel it. It was a big bang," said
Darla Peck, 25, of Portland, Oregon. "It shook the building. I thought it could
have been thunder, but I looked down and there was a massive plume of smoke so I
knew it was an explosion," said Terry Leighton, 48, of London, who was staying
on the 21st floor of the Marriott.

And the Leftist connection:

In October 2005, a group of activists who call themselves the
Granny Peace Brigade rallied there against the Iraq war. Eighteen activists,
most of them grandmothers with several in their 80s and 90s, were later
acquitted of disorderly conduct.

Of course, we can't discount Islamic terrorist action, especially considering NY's recent history with this problem. As we have seen so often in the Middle East, Al Qaeda excels in spreading confusion and discord among nations. The evidence, due to recent events however, is damning against the Left. Funny, how there are so against America fighting her enemies overseas, but have no such revulsion in attacking our troops here.

When prominent Democratic politicians, like Howard Dean and John Kerry in the last election, plus current presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, repeat unfounded rumors that "Bush lied to get us into war", it is only natural that their more radicals followers seek to take matters in their own hands. Meanwhile, to further their own political means, the liberal politicians excuse their own complicity in getting us in the war, as it was Democrats who first sounded the clarion against Saddam's WMD programs in the 1990's.

More from John at Powerline "Given the increasing virulence of attacks on the military and on military recruiting facilities by antiwar groups like Code Pink, most notably the repeated confrontations in Berkeley, one could speculate that a liberal group is the most likely culprit."
