Suicide Bombing in Oklahoma
You’ll have to hunt for the news—mainstream media seems almost totally uninterested—but there was a suicide bombing outside a football stadium at the University of Oklahoma last night: U. of Oklahoma Blast Is Apparent Suicide. (Hat tip: LGF readers.)
NORMAN, Okla. - One person was killed in an explosion near a packed football stadium at the University of Oklahoma on Saturday night in what authorities said appeared to be a suicide.
The blast, in a traffic circle about 100 yards from Oklahoma Memorial Stadium, could be heard by some in the crowd of 84,000, but university President David Boren said no one inside the stadium was ever in danger.
"We are apparently dealing with an individual suicide, which is under full investigation," Boren said in a statement. There was no information about the person who was killed, and no reports of any other injuries.
A police bomb squad detonated explosives found at the site of the blast. The area near the stadium was searched by bomb-sniffing dogs.
Michelle Malkin now has more extensive information.
SUICIDE BOMBER IN OKLAHOMA
Let's hope is was just someone depressed, who wanted to go out with a bang. But the truth is something like Bali and London is just a matter of time.
For al-Zarqawi has been very clear about who the real enemy is
"We have declared a bitter war against democracy and all those who seek to enact it," said the speaker in the 35-minute message.
"Democracy is also based on the right to choose your religion," he said, and that is "against the rule of God.
To that there is only ONE answer as given by Patick Henry at the Dawn of our Republic
It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry,
Peace, Peace-- but there is no peace. The war is actually begun!
The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!
For those of our Society who cannot be stirred by Patrick Henry, there is but the message of Samuel Adams to their like in our past.
"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude
greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace.
We seek not your counsel, nor your arms
. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you;
May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity
forget that ye were our countrymen."
And when or if things like this come again to our shores I do NOT want to see Congress assembled singing "God Bless America"
I want to hear
THE BATTLE HYMN OF THE REPUBLIC!
