I'm wondering if this was a muslim extremist terrorist attack?! Would that shocking possible fact be down played or amped up by the media?!

This is awful and makes me wonder just how well they look after their railwy infrastructure (rails, etc.) in the U.S., considering they don't seem to have money to keep infrastructure up with bridges and city/town infrastructure.

Click onto these terrible images to enlarge and enhance them...

Because it seems to me like a f###en bomb exploded within and or beneath this fast moving train?!

Quote:Janna D'Ambrisi was in the second-to-last car, reading a book when she felt the jolt.

"Suddenly it felt like we were going a little too fast around a curve," she said.

Dont get me wrong because i'm not trying to diss what shes thinking and saying...

But shes an expert with enough train riding knowledge and experience to realize and understand when a train is traveling too fast?!

Like how often has she been riding within trains that were traveling too fast when most trains never do...

Just saying i mean like seriously think about that for a minute...

Quote:"It's an extremely heavily used stretch of track," transportation analyst Matthew L. Wald said of the area. "They have trouble keeping it in a state of good repair."

You don't have to be any kind of expert to recognize the difference between 50 and 100 mph in my opinion.

Quote:An NTSB board member said an initial review of the train's data recorder shows that the train was going 106 mph three seconds before the recording ended, when the engineer pressed the full emergency brake application. The train was going 102 mph at the end of the recording. There is a 50 mph limit at the curve where the train derailed and a 70 mph limit for regional trains in the area preceding the curve, so the reason why the train was going so fast will be one of the biggest questions facing investigators.

That'd do it.
Cosmic, that's all pure conjecture on your part, the woman was on the train you were not. I know you love to blame every disaster and mishap on Muslims, from bombings to wedgies, but sometimes your reasoning borders on desperate.
