'False Flag!' is what people cry about when someone from their ideology commits a violent act or when said violent act somehow discredits their ideology. It's easier than thinking.

Dollars to donuts we're dealing with either 1) foreign Muslim nutball 2) domestic Muslim nutball 3) domestic Right-wing nutball or 4) domestic dress up like Garfield and claim obedience to the fish-people nutball.

Thoughts/prayers to those affected and their families.

So?

"So"...? So... so... what? It's a link to a news feed (you know, like the other eleventy billion up there?). I'm not sure what aspect of this your brain is failing to process... sorry.

angry?


Angry at someone seemingly perturbed as the sharing of another source of information... perhaps. Why does sharing another feed cause you to basically question why someone would do such a thing? He shared a link to a feed. What made you focus on it in a thread of over 1000 posts and feel the need to reply by asking "So?".

Thrag: hockeyfarker: what_now: They keep showing this video, and there's an old guy who's 10 feet from the finish and when the bomb hits, he simply collapses. I know it's not the worst thing that happened, but the idea of a guy of advanced years getting hit by shrapnel 10 feet from finishing a marathon... I don't even.

I saw some aftermath pictures, that guy was okay. Well, he wasn't bleeding, eyes were open and alert, cops were helping him, anyways. No shrapnel. Probably couldn't hear shiat though.

He's being interviewed on CNN right now.


Don't have CNN- is he ok? Did he finish?

ArgusRun: I'm going to go home, work on some homemade electronics while watching Archer and then drink myself to sleep.

When I wake up in the morning there will be some actual verifiable information available, and the news organizations will come to some sort of consensus about not showing picture 8.


This is also my plan to the letter.

And what is pic #8 (link or gtfo)?
 
2013-04-15 09:13:01 PM
The Man In Orange -- as he's known (since I'm calling him that) is Bill Iffrig, a 78-year-old runner who has been in more than 45 marathons, this being his 3rd Boston Marathon. He's being interviewed on Piers Morgan on CNN as I type this tonight.

Basically, he's the guy who was in the orange in the race and fell from the force of explosion.
Bill said he had a cut on his leg, and was helped up by a race official to the few hundred feet to the finish line to ensure that he (Bill) finished. Once there, they insisted on getting a wheelchair for him to help treat his injuries.

jim32rr: Badgers: GoldSpider: ...and of course here come all the "thoughts and prayers" flooding Facebook from people who desperately want to feel like they've contributed something and were 'a part" of the event.

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

Sid_6.7: 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.


Below is your point in which you claim the IRA does not attempt to kill random civilians.  You'll notice in my reply, I do state this is very unlikely to have anything to do with Irish terrorism.  However, having lived through both the Provos & the UFF's campaigns of NOT targeting civilians, I do disagree with you.  By all means, please feel free to point out how I have no idea what I'm talking about.

The IRA does not, generally speaking, attempt to kill random civilians. It has happened in the past, but most attacks are at infrastructure, not people, and they call ahead to warn that people should be evacuated. When attacks are intentionally against people, they're normally against people who are perceived as occupying or otherwise working against the IRA and their goals. Random people in a marathon don't fit this profile.

This attack is the opposite of their MO, unless it was completely idiotic and poorly planned on their part.

Not true: the Harrods bomb, Enniskillen, the Corporation St. bomb in Manchester to name but a few.  And not to mention all the trash cans which had to be removed from the streets of London because people kept planting bombs in them.  But what they won't do is bite the hand that fed them; I'd be really surprised if this had anything to do with Irish terrorism.

that bosnian sniper: hardinparamedic: so you're insinuating a US soldier did this?

That's what you're saying here?

Wade Michael Page, Nidal Hasan, Jim David Adkisson, Timothy McVeigh, Terry Nichols, and Michael Fortier. Six names, right off the top of my head, and I know if I went to my bookshelf I could probably double or triple that list with less time and effort than it took me to write  thispost.  What do all six of those people have in common?


They were all dickheads?

Some Canadian guy just told his local newspaper that some crazy raving woman warned people on Saturday that they'd die if they ran in the Marathon.

what_now: FriarReb98: I need to think about something off topic so here goes:

If the Sox weren't going out of town for three days, do you think they'd still have tomorrow's game? Also, what in the hell is Fenway gonna be like on Friday when they come back?  For that matter, how about the Celtics tomorrow or the Bruins on Wednesday night?? Those are gonna be clusterfarks of security, I'd imagine....

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

At North Station today, everyone getting on a train was searched.


I've told my clients that I plan to be in city tomorrow, but that my schedule will be dependent on how tight security is getting in and out.

farkingismybusiness: Here is another angle of the Picture #8 guy. NSFW GORE The Cowboy is squeezing his artery.

"The man in the cowboy hat is Carlos Arredondo. He is an immigrant citizen of the U.S. who lost his son in Iraq and is now a peace activist and speaker. When the explosions happened, you can see that he did not hesitate to run towards the chaos and help, obviously trying to get this poor man out of there and to hold a tourniquet on one of his severed legs. Later, he was being interviewed, visibly shaking from shock and holding an American flag, soaked in the blood of other people. Carlos Arredondo's selflessness and bravery should be known and applauded."


Dude has brass balls for doing that. I couldn't bring myself to touch that. Ugh. Awesome hero, though.

I really hope we don't devolve into that.

Recently there has been a big to-do in these parts regarding a town fighting with a village and blah blah.
Anyway the town keeps saying they have the right to "Home Rule". I just wanted to smack a biatch because what they are arguing about is so farking petty and to say it's about Home Rule just....fark.......

Every time there's an "incident", some idiot like you says, "I bet it was a tea party guy" or some variation thereof.  And every time it's completely wrong.  So how about you shut your ignorant mouth and wait for some actual farking facts for a change?  I don't even like that tea party all that much, but this knee-jerk finger pointing is getting damn tiresome.
