Boston Pic #8?

tinfoil-hat maggie: Yea, Hubie is one of my favorite Farkers when I want and need a rational perspective on things.


Uh, his rational perspective amounts to waiting for the TV to tell us what to think, and not getting carried away by things people who aren't on TV say.

Not saying people should jump to conclusions. Just that they should treat facts someone on TV has with the same skepticism as anyone elses facts. Question everything equally.

tinyarena: Gee, they put ball bearings in the bombs?

I hope they're still in Boston.  If they get caught in Boston - they will never leave.
Boston is a lovely town, but even the old-lady-Boston-socialites, would tear the bomber(s) limb from limb.


There was a series of rapes in the North End a few years ago. The North End is the Italian section.

At one point, the rapes stopped and the police stopped investigating.

There's a lot of speculation that the rapist was found by the Legitmate Businessman's Society and politely asked to stop, and the BPD was informed that they wouldn't find him.

It was a disgruntled marathoner who qualified with their time but did not win the lottery to get into the race.

What are the odds for my entry?

Limbaugh
Beck

And the rest.

/Its time to clean house and send them to Gitmo.

How can anyone say who did what. While I don't agree with these people or their policies, I'm not ready to sacrifice liberty for something something maybe sorta looks like security.

Because a bombing related to a live sporting event like the Olympics on Tax Day positively reeks of domestic right wing terrorism


Good to see liberals not letting a crisis go to waste and blaming political opponents on the first opportunity.

What a sick fark.

TheRealist: God dammit, all i keep seeing is those yellow balloons. You know a kid was holding those. I don't think this was domestic terrorism, that being said, we should not overreact... this was just another successful plot that is a rarity when you look at the big picture.


Yes, I noticed those balloons going up in the air in that video. Knowing that an 8-year old died in the bombing, you know that could have been that kid right there.  There were other kids wounded, though, but the possibility exists.

As far as domestic or not... I'm pretty conservative, but I can see scenarios where domestic terrorists would want to do something stupid. I can see scenarios where foreign terrorists would want to do something like that.

It would be easy to blame a horrific event on people you don't like (conservatives, "IT WERE MOSLEMS!!!11!"... liberals, "IT WAS TEH TEA PARTY!!11!!"), but that's stupid & just about as un-American as the sentiment behind the bombing, IMO.

2013-04-15 08:53:42 PM

theotherles: I forgot to mention this:

The running of the marathon commemorates the defeat of an attempt by the Persian Empire to conquer Greece. The battle took place on the Plain of Marathon in 490 BC. It was a victory of Western Civilization over Asiatic Despotism. As such it may have the most important battle fought in history.


It fails to point out that after defeating "asiatic despotism" we opted for Western Despotism for a millenium and a half.

2013-04-15 08:54:46 PM

ACunningPlan: Yes, because placing vague calls is a show of real heroism; let's blame the authorities for not being psychic. Tell that to the parents of the little boy in Warrington who was blown to pieces, but not quite enough to kill him instantly, so he had the pleasure of dying in hospital a short while later - he was buying a Mothers' Day gift. Of course, a warning was telephoned: not to the police, mind you but to the Samaritans [if you don't know who they are it's a suicide helpline] giving the location of one bomb - IIRC correctly two bombs went off almost simultaneously at different locations.

But bless the IRA, they did call ahead first. Casualties of war, they call them and hey, it proves terrorism does work. Odd Sein Fein renounced violence on September 12th 2001 - never saw the need prior to that date, I wonder why.


I'm not saying they're heroic. Far from it.

This discussion originally began from some pointing out that this bombing does not have the IRA's fingerprints on it with what we know so far.

If you're incapable of agreeing with that, then you really do have no idea what you're talking about.

http://www.theatlantic.com/infocus/2013/04/photos-of-the-boston-mara th on-bombing/100495/

The Atlanta has 16 pictures of the bombing.
Picture number eight has a man in a wheelchair whose lower leg is....well, stew meat.
It's barely recognizable as a limb, and he appears to have bleeding under control only because he also appears to be missing all of his veins and arteries.

It's...pretty graphic.
Probably one of the more graphic ones to come out of this other than photos of the dead little boy which I'm sure will hit the 'net sooner or later, probably through bestgore.com or something similar.

It's a pic of a guy being wheeled off in a wheelchair. One of his lower legs is just a bone. I'm sure you can find it if you Google it. I don't want to see it again, though.

Replace "prayers" with "faps". It's about as useful and similarly self-centered...

fo_sho!: Sid_6.7: PunGent: Again, NO. You're cruising for an ignoring...today is NOT the day for this kind of apologist crap, frankly.

THIS!

Fark off. As someone who lives in the UK at the time, the IRA called in false bomb threats continually so the signal to noise ratio made it a crapshoot.
I lived less than 10 miles from the site of the Warrington bombings, set in trash cans outside stores in a busy shoppi g centre on the Saturday before Mothers Day.
They called in an alert that a bomb had been planted outside Boots - that's like calling in an alert saying there is a bomb by a Walgreens somewhere in the US.
A three year old and an eleven year old were killed, shopping for Mother's Day.
Didn't target civilians - bullshiat.
Then there is the Xmas pub bombing campaign...


THIS!

what_now: The celtics game tomorrow is cancelled, not to be rescheduled.


Huh, hadn't heard that one yet.  Hell, it's not even on Celtics.com yet.

And as for North Station, you know what? I've traveled on 9/11 before.  Even flown on one of the anniversaries; other than my friend's beach sand (our first Pacific trip) getting VERY closely looked at, it was fine.  That being said, I actually want to go to something in Boston right now.  I want to go, and as small as the gesture might be, just figuratively flip off whomever did this, just to show that terror has no place in my life.  I know it's probably stupid, or rash, but I think it's right for me.

While I realize scrolling up would probably solve the situation I'm about to describe, for the sake of Farkers' sensibilities, please clarify next time that you were the one who posted the Al-Jazeera link, and not the guy whose legs got blown off.

bdub77: CygnusDarius: The Incredible Sexual Egg: CNN is reporting the BPD put out a report telling people to be on the look out of a black guy with a backpack and an accent....or every cab driver in Boston

I guess it's a bad time to be a back-packing Jamaican.

Or the winner of the marathon. Because not only did your big win get overshadowed by some terrorist attack, you're probably wanted for questioning as a black foreign national.


Actually, it would sort of make sense with someone from Sudan, Uganda, Somalia, or...and brace for the Birfers...Kenya...who had some beef with the US over their handling of East Africa's problems.  Plus, it falls right in line with them being distance runners, thus intimately familiar with marathon routes and procedures.

ScaryBottles: Amos Quito: ScaryBottles: Amos Quito: Deducing who the culprits might be in such a situation:

1. TERRORISTS: Look at those who are "most likely" to have reason to commit such an act out of hatred.

2. FALSE FLAG: Look at the ENEMIES of category 1, as they might benefit from creating enemies of their enemies.


In other words, you ask the simple question: WHO BENEFITS?

3. CRAZIES: Consider that it MAY have been committed by one or more lunatics with NO apparent motive other than death and destruction.

Do you really believe that?


What part do you question?

The second and third



For the second, see "False-Flag". Acts committed by one party with the specific intent of having a non-involved third party take the blame, the goal being to give the actual culprit political advantages. In such attacks evidence is often planted implicating the third party. The Reichstag Fire of 1933 Germany is a well known example of a suspected "false-flag" attack.

As to CRAZIES, think Adam Lanza and "Sideshow Bob". These had no clear political motives or "statements" to make, yet they created death and destruction - for no apparent reason.

Need I say more?
