    A bomb attack in New York City was a terrorist act, officials say, but no links have been found to global groups and the motivation remains unclear.

    "Was it a political motivation? A personal motivation? We do not know," said Mayor Bill de Blasio.

    Saturday night's blast in Manhattan injured 29 people. They have all now been released from hospital.

    NY Governor Andrew Cuomo said: "Whoever placed these bombs - we will find them and they will be brought to justice."

    A second device - reportedly a pressure cooker attached to wiring and a mobile phone - had been found four blocks from the site of the explosion in the Chelsea district and was removed safely.

    How do you stop something like this? Without descending into a surveillance happy, "police-on-every-corner", paranoid police state, there's so little that can be done.

    You can't watch every social media post for the one threat that's real, you can't monitor every phone call or text message for suspicious crumbs (not legally anyway) and you can't keep the whole population under an all-seeing eye without garnering complaints about privacy.

    These guys (mainly from Saudi Arabia) opened up schools everywhere polluting peoples minds with Salafi ideology. The Salafi ideology doesn't take into account hundreds of scholars who have way done extremely delicate research on all islamic topics and issues using proper methodology laid out our by our Prophet. They also have very limited knowledge of hadith and other topics in general even though they act as if they know.

    Most of these terrorists are losers who failed in life and now try to act like some kind of self imagined super man where they imagine they are "saving the ummah" and "fighting for islam". These idiots are just causing damage and destroying our countries while others laugh. We already have pre warning about these guys since time of the prophet, we will beat these guys but as technofox mentioned its not easy.
