Your cartoon supports your arguments so well (whatever arguments those may be..)

Shouldn't you be counting your blood money, cheney?

Wow, your rebuttals just keep getting more on-point.  Perhaps you have another cartoon to illuminate your erudite analysis?  No? Maybe a bumper sticker then...

Naw.

You guys already cornered the "justifying heinous acts with bumper stickers" market around '03.


Heh, you've apparently never read any of my comments here before, but your assumptions are cute and amusing.  let's go with it.   Still not sure what your point is with all of this.. Have you made one yet or are you just having fun being intentionally offensive in a tragedy thread?

miss diminutive: Today's events have both saddened and angered me, sentiments I'm sure I'm not alone in feeling. Then coming into these threads and seeing countless Farkers stumble over one another to place the blame on whichever group suits their particular agenda and personal viewpoint angered me further. I was honestly disgusted with humanity. Then, I stopped and realized that this is probably the symptom of living in an age where we have instantaneous access to horrible events yet, stuck behind our keyboards, there's simply nothing we can do about them. We can't help those afflicted, we can't lend a helping hand, we can't search for those responsible. In that void maybe we search for something, anything, to do. And maybe assigning blame seems the path of least resistance.

Looking at the scenes of carnage from the race my first thoughts were "what sort of monster would do this?" and if I let myself go down that path it's easy to start to believe that the world is going to hell and that we've completely lost our humanity. But when you look past the images of maimed people you see countless others who rushed to the scene, disregarding their own safety, to help in any way possible. For every one monster out there, there are least 1000 people willing to stop and help, to lend a hand or a shoulder. For every political douchebag interested in scoring points in some twisted blame game, there are a thousand people who want nothing more than peace for those injured and justice brought to those responsible.

So, I'm going to make a donation to the red cross (I'm too light to donate blood), I'm going to help my elderly neighbour trim her hedges tomorrow evening and I'm going to hug my friends and offer them my time should they need it. I can't help the people of Boston, but I can make my tiny corner of the world a better place, and collectively that beats any monster with a bomb full of shrapnel every time. At least, in my opinion it does.

/sorry for rant
//yeah, lighten up francis


In my opinion this Fark post made my own tiny corner better too.

walkerhound: Mister Pleco: I don't know if the device was in plain sight.  Earlier, I posted that there are two mailboxes located in the general vicinity of the blast by the finish line:  http://goo.gl/maps/rRmj9

At first I thought you were just clouded by the tinfoil, but i honestly bet that would explain the lower leg extremities (I bet those boxes are weaker at the bottom), the limitations of the blast, and the shrapnel.


I can up the tinfoil by pointing out that the footage of the second blast (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/video/video/20130415/boston-maratho n- second-blast.sportsillustrated/) is in this general area:  http://goo.gl/maps/xDSQB  There is another mailbox here, too.

Looks like the aftermath of a drone strike, terrible.

Just like any kind of explosion caused by any kind of explosive. What was the point of this little shiat-bit?

List them.

America got a little slice of middle eastern hell today and people need to know that others are suffering from this fate outside of the country too.

But I guess empathy is a non renewable resource not to be wasted on brown people, right? Bigot.

Call me crazy, but when something like this happens in the country I live in, I tend to pay a bit more attention to it. Got a problem with that? I don't care.

A narrow minded nationalist who can't conjure up even a minuscule of empathy for people outside of your imaginary lines?

People like you tend to lead to political disasters where your countrymen are sent overseas in fancy uniforms and returned in fancy boxes.

mccallcl: So not only has the bombing been successful, and the perp(s) have left the scene, but unlike running a red light almost anywhere in the country, we have no footage of the perp(s).


Honestly, we just don't know that yet. I have a hard time believing that in this day and age nobody has footage of the packages, or a least the people responsible for planting the packages. That would be rare considering our love of cameras and videos now-a-days. However, even if they did have footage, I would think we probably wouldn't see it for some time since the police and Feds would keep a tight lid on any of it until they've veiwed it themselves. Surely there's footage of something out of the ordinary out there.

I rarely use the word 'Hate".  It is a powerful and negative word.  For me, hatred is reserved for one type of person:  The Coward.

Planting bombs to go off in the midst of innocent people going about their everyday lives is the job of a coward.  Convincing some illiterate kid he is doing "god's will" while you walk away is the ultimate coward.

I dont know who is responsible for the bombings today, but I know they are Cowards.

super_grass: Keizer_Ghidorah: coming from someone who accuses all Americans as being Middle East haters and 100% responsible for the 2,000 years of strife and conflict that's occurred there

Nobody said that. Did you just make this up on the spot to rationalise your own callousness?

You're entitled to your opinions, not your own reality.


Oh please, kid, you've been saying exactly that to everyone in this thread who deigned to respond to your  "hurr hurr it looks like a drone strike, take that America" trolling. I know you're doing this for shiats and giggles, maybe you can grow up and stop your nonsense.
 
2013-04-15 10:42:25 PM  
My gut says that the bomber(s) are American. I have no evidence to point to and don't in any way claim to be correct on that. It's just a gut feeling that when we find out who was behind this that it will be an American (possibly more than one) who committed this shameful act of cowardice.

I sincerely hope that we figure out who did this regardless of whether it was a foreign or domestic act of terrorism.
 
2013-04-15 10:42:38 PM  

Sticky Hands: Keizer_Ghidorah: Apparently you've forgotten what today is.

The day makes a little bit of sense.
The target makes much less sense.

Our home grown nutjobs nearly always target specific buildings/people. (OKC, IRS, Anthrax to legislators , etc.)
General mayhem isn't usually their MO.  Now if you tell me there is a federal building on the block or some important politician was suppose to be there, I'll change my mind, but the Times Square attempt from a while back shows that the Islamic guys are still trying, and frankly this kind of attack is very much their style. (of course they have a lot of styles....) but multiple small bombs targeting random civilians is very similar to the London, Spain and Bali attacks.  If that rental truck rumor from earlier is true, then it very much matches the "use small bombs to drive people to the big bomb" tactic.



I'm sure someone's pointed it out already, but Spokane Bomb Guy begs to differ.

[encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com image 243x207]

Nice rebuttal.

There is no debate in the harm caused by America's interventionist policies in the mideast.

To deny its impact would be to deny the impact of the triangle trade. And it takes a special kind of "American exceptionalism" idiocy to do so.

There is plenty to debate in just how much harm America has caused in general in any region of the world.

But to blame the 'hell' that the ME is on the US is retarded, based in bias and completely ignorant of all the other mitigating factors that have played a part in crafting the Ninth layer of Hell that is the Middle East.

Such as religion, British-mandated borderlines, an addiction to oil that rivals the worst drugs, ignorance and ethnic hatreds that make anything the US has ever known seem paltry and petty by comparison.

But no, you go ahead and blame it all on the US.  We're totally responsible for how the ME turned out.

Retard.


I would say that an almost decade long illegal war filled with abuse, torture, and unaccountable mercs did its part.

Even the fundie governments are either propped up and armed by U.S. oil/tax dollars or capitalized on populist outrage after the U.S. government toppled yet another democratically elected government.

An IED attack killed 50 people in Iraq last month thanks to power struggles fueled by sectarian violence.  Tell me that it would not have happened had the U.S. not invaded the country. I farking dare you.

It's interesting that his crew used a very similar bomb but it failed to go off. He advocated for killing upwards of 25 million Americans and he's treated as "just some guy". If only Nixon had drones...

Billy Bathsalt: On the other hand, if someone was specifically trying to kill one or more people in the crowd, and have it blamed on terrorism, that would be a good way to do it. People have crashed planes to kill someone on board them -- why not set off bombs? If I was the cops, I'd want to look really hard at the ex-spouses, spurned lovers, fired employees, etc., of everyone who was in that area at the time. It would not surprise me in the slightest to find the murderer among them.

Quite plausible.


As a movie plot yes, but somebody would have to buy all the (whatever) and hire all the helpers with (whatever skills) and that gets less believable as the costs go up.

I do, just like how I also give a shiat about dead Americans solders who got killed because people like you thought that the only thing that comes out of war will be "merely" dead Iraqis.

You know, there was just a story about how he hasn't been seen for a couple of weeks. Hmmmmmmmmm


He was on hand for events today - or maybe it was a look-alike, to give him an alibi for when he was planting bombs.

LessO2: Christ, if this picture is real, it's heartbreaking.

It certainly looks like an eight year-old.

Pic is SFW, just heartbreaking.


It is an adult female.  The Huffingtonpost slideshow shows the same victim receiving medical attention.    Judging by the way she is holding her hands up, and the EMT monitoring her pulse, she at least appears to be conscious.   (link not graphic)

The rest of that slideshow has graphic photos, including another angle of the poor guy in the wheelchair with massive leg trauma.  It clearly shows he lost both legs.

Infernalist: Don't Claymore mines use ball-bearings?

And haven't they said that many of the injured were dealing with leg injuries?

Could the bombs have been military-grade claymore mines?


No. Next question.

Keizer_Ghidorah: Lots of people available to kill and hurt. Lots of people and cameras watching. High-profile event.

At least try to think once in a while instead of immediately posting retarded idiocy.


Yeah, high-profile event with mucho media coverage. So?

Bombing the Boston Marathon as an "anti-Government" statement would make as much sense as PETA bombing an Arbor Day tree-planting.

Apparently you've forgotten what today is.

Keizer_Ghidorah: super_grass: Infernalist: super_grass: Infernalist: super_grass: Infernalist: America is not responsible for the hell that is the Middle East.

Nice rebuttal.

There is no debate in the harm caused by America's interventionist policies in the mideast.

To deny its impact would be to deny the impact of the triangle trade. And it takes a special kind of "American exceptionalism" idiocy to do so.

There is plenty to debate in just how much harm America has caused in general in any region of the world.

But to blame the 'hell' that the ME is on the US is retarded, based in bias and completely ignorant of all the other mitigating factors that have played a part in crafting the Ninth layer of Hell that is the Middle East.

Such as religion, British-mandated borderlines, an addiction to oil that rivals the worst drugs, ignorance and ethnic hatreds that make anything the US has ever known seem paltry and petty by comparison.

But no, you go ahead and blame it all on the US.  We're totally responsible for how the ME turned out.

Retard.

I would say that an almost decade long illegal war filled with abuse, torture, and unaccountable mercs did its part.

Even the fundie governments are either propped up and armed by U.S. oil/tax dollars or capitalized on populist outrage after the U.S. government toppled yet another democratically elected government.

An IED attack killed 50 people in Iraq last month thanks to power struggles fueled by sectarian violence.  Tell me that it would not have happened had the U.S. not invaded the country. I farking dare you.

Considering what they've been doing to each other for the last 2,000 years, that's barely a blip in the atrocity radar.


They've been on the forefront of science and culture when white christians were dying from their own sewage.

The fundamentalist movement was a more recent phenomenon, but don't let that get in the way of your bigoted stereotypes.

There will be a whole lot of video to look at when you factor in ATM's, building security cameras, and video recorded by individuals watching and news crews reporting on the marathon.


I don't know if Boston has it, but besides the news cameras, the Berlin Marathon also had a stalkerish camera service for capturing runners on video so that you can then order a video clip of runner #xyz at the start, certain way points (like a landmark or every x miles) and obviously at the finish line and in the end zone.
Then again, those cameras are set up to capture the track and not the people on the side.

This is too damn silly. Sports mascots are gonna find and stop the bomber. It's like a dumb 90s cartoon that only aired for 5 episodes.

And then there is this.

I know ribbons are cool and all but this farking image can't help me but think it's a person's leg twirling in the air.
