super_grass: Keizer_Ghidorah: 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.

The truth hurts, doesn't it?


What "truth"? Point out whenever I said I didn't care about anything. Go on, find it and quote it. You won't find anything. You're the one who put those words in my mouth and accused me of your strawman. All you're doing is shiatposting in the thread like a desperate child upset that his parents aren't paying attention to him.

Outshined_One: Don't we usually get a group claiming responsibility for this sort of thing by now?  It seems kind of strange that there's been a lot of silence on that front, especially with no one in custody.


Usually you get dozens of groups claiming responsibility by now. It takes some time to sort the "in your dreams" candidates from the "you might, rabbit, you might" ones.

super_grass: fritton: super_grass: John Buck 41: super_grass: Keizer_Ghidorah: super_grass: farkingismybusiness: Here's some more EXTREMELY NSFW NSFL photos from immediately after the blasts.

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.

Did you already post the straw man image yourself up thread?  How bad does that cognitive dissonance burn?

Nationalism and me-first thinking leads to conflict and suffering.

Perhaps you should read a (non-American) history text book.


Yah, done.  Your trolling isn't amusing in this kind of thread and your posts are too stupid to be anything BUT trollilng.  /ignored

mccallcl: Mister Pleco: I don't know if the device was in plain sight.

Either in plain sight, or in a bomb-sized hiding place that was made available for hiding a bomb <i>at the finish line of the Boston Marathon</i>. Not sure which is worse.

Let's just call it even (and ignore the fact that there hasn't been any security camera footage of the site of the explosion released that would reveal who put it there, and no suspects yet). 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).

Good job, authorities. Glad you're putting those flak jackets and assault vehicles to good use.


So, are going be at the front of the lynch mob?
 
2013-04-15 10:57:38 PM  

Worldwalker: I haven't read this whole thread, just skimmed it, but there's one thing I'm not seeing:

There's all sorts of speculation among my fellow Farkers about whether it's foreign terrorism, domestic terrorism, Muslims, Tea Partiers, or some random sort of wacko ... and missing one possibility:

Why would someone who wanted to make a major "statement" and cause mass mayhem/death set off bombs two hours after the first runners came across the line? By then, everything that matters is over, the crowds have thinned out, people are starting to leave, etc.

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.

Scenario: Fred is a former postal worker who wants to kill Charlie, the guy who fired him. He knows Charlie's son Joe is going to be running in the Boston Marathon. So he plants his bombs, and when Joe is close to the finish line, and Charlie is moving up to watch him finish, Fred sets off the bombs. Maybe he kills Charlie, maybe he has to try again later, but either way, nobody's looking at him. He was just a guy in the crowd, and not any sort of terrorist. Just, y'know, a guy with a major beef against someone else who he knew was going to be there.

Truth? Speculation? I dunno. But it doesn't seem to be anything anyone is looking at.


Two explosions with shrapnel to kill a single person? The use of shrapnel would suggest a desire to injure anyone that isn't killed by the explosion. It just doesn't seem likely to me.

I also don't think the guy in right wing or left wing. He's didn't target a political event and this isn't a traditional military target.

I'm calling it: white male in his 20s. Single. He identifies himself as a sovereign citizen and is probably known by other sovereign citizens because he's notorious for expressing extreme or disturbing sentiments. He's the guy that takes it too far. He's not a Boston native. South or Midwest. He acted alone.

dave2198: This may come as a shock to you, but authorities often hold evidence that they don't share with other people.


Thanks for the tip, but I don't give a shiat. My fellow Americans and I have a right to know everything about this immediately. It's a deadly terror attack, not a minor arrested for PI in the local news blotter. I don't want to find out the day after tomorrow, once the authorities have gotten a chance to circle up and get their stories straight. I want the information as it becomes available. My tax dollars paid for the equipment we're supposedly using to monitor these groups, and the staff that's supposed to keep me safe from terror. Somebody farked up somewhere (probably several somebodies). I want their names, so I can be sure they are fired.

I also want the names of any and all suspects before they have a chance to be escorted out of the country on private planes because their families are connected, or before they are anonymously executed because their identities would be an embarrassment to someone important. I also don't want the same truther bullshiat as last time, fed in part by the bizarre timing of information released in the wake of 9/11.

We have a right to know, and "part of an ongoing investigation" or not, I demand the raw truth. We don't hold back evidence when a bank is robbed, we put the perps on blast.

dave2198: Because that's what it would have taken to completely lock down the BOSTON MARATHON instantaneously.


That's why there weren't cars driving all over the course: because we have martial law. Face it: preventing terrorism in this country is a joke. If this were London, the group responsible would already be in custody. They know how to fight terror in the UK because they have actual practice, unlike the donut-munching gold-bricking authorities we have over here in the States. I would love to know which AR-15-carrying flak-jacket filler was standing closest to the bomb site all day, scratching his or her ass.

This was a crime, not some random act of God. I want those responsible for the crime identified, and those who allowed the crime to happen held responsible for not doing their job properly. And it all starts with lots of raw information being released ASAP. Not by sifting through it and removing the incriminating bits first.

Lots of medical professionals nearby for the race, and a lot of world class hospitals in the city I'm sure helped that.  Add in all the police from the videos being Weeners types and it really can help people survive who wouldn't have if their injuries happened in other circumstances.

It was lost in the comments, so I'll post it again.

According to this source (link in spanish), former president of Mexico, Felipe Calderon (the one responsible for starting a direct military action against the drug cartels) was a spectator in the race. Maybe one of the Zetas (known for subtlety), wanted to kill him and cause enough mayhem to slip away.

If this were true, well, you guys wanted US troops in Mexico?.

Truth? Speculation? I dunno. But it doesn't seem to be anything anyone is looking at.

I'm not sure if this is realistic or not, but you should definitely be writing for CSI.

Early indications don't seem to support this, but, I wouldn't be surprised for someone to try this... other than, usually that person ONLY wants to target the person who "wronged them"... they wouldn't want to ...


Look at the recent case of ex-LAPD officer Dorner, who killed the daughter of the man he thought responsible for his firing, and her fiance.
Also, DC sniper, who supposedly wanted to kill his ex-wife in order to get custody of their kids, and shot all other victims as a diversion.
 
2013-04-15 11:06:35 PM  
I'm honestly puzzled by this whole thing. Who did it? The Fark lefties are screaming teabaggers, etc. The Fark Righties are screaming Mooslims. And a few others are suggesting IRA, etc. None of these, to me, makes sense.

Here's why:

1) Islamic extremists:  With the exception - I think - of the Lockerbie plane bombing, I do not recall a single instance of Islamic bombings where the group responsible did not claim credit. No one has claimed credit.
Possible reasons, though, why not:
a) the authorities are muzzling the media that would have received the credit claim. This does not seem likely.
b) after our response to 911, perhaps they are afraid. This doesn't make sense either, sense the whole reason for terror attacks is to goad us into attacking something in the Middle East, thereby winning friends and influencing people (not).
c) might be a homegrown Islamic terror cell, in deep cover.

2) Home-grown right wing terrorists: Generally attack targets directly related to their beef (ex: abortion clinics) or government facilities. This target was neither, and the PR blowback would not be beneficial.

3) IRA: As far as I know, the IRA has generally warned authorities when a bombing is about to take place. Also, why would they do this bombing?

4) Other possibilities:

a) Deflection from attention and police presence from a crime elsewhere? Too Hollywood, and no crime has been reported. But maybe the other victims were killed and haven't been discovered yet?

b) Murder. Say I have a reason to murder one of the people either running in the race, or someone I know will be at the finish line. IF the bombs were remote-detonated (say by someone with a line-of-sight view of the area) then this would make sense;
i) detonate when victim is near one of the bombs.
ii) multiple victims, so police have a hard time figuring out who the actual target was.
iii) the bombs make it look like terrorism, not murder.

Thoughts?

dave2198: Because that's what it would have taken to completely lock down the BOSTON MARATHON instantaneously.

That's why there weren't cars driving all over the course: because we have martial law. Face it: preventing terrorism in this country is a joke. If this were London, the group responsible would already be in custody. They know how to fight terror in the UK because they have actual practice, unlike the donut-munching gold-bricking authorities we have over here in the States. I would love to know which AR-15-carrying flak-jacket filler was standing closest to the bomb site all day, scratching his or her ass.

This was a crime, not some random act of God. I want those responsible for the crime identified, and those who allowed the crime to happen held responsible for not doing their job properly. And it all starts with lots of raw information being released ASAP. Not by sifting through it and removing the incriminating bits first.


You're terrifying.
Thank goodness we have Due Process.

TheBlackFlag: 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.


So much THIS.

Yes. Speculation is futile.

Gyrfalcon: Two questions that must be forcibly taken from news anchors when they interview people about things like this:

"What was it like? What did you do?"

"It was scary. I shiat myself." I mean WHAT DO YOU THINK IT WAS LIKE?!?


Definitely. Why do television reporters always have to give off an air of stupidity/and or naivete in live interviews when the response to their question will be obvious to anyone over the age of 4? Just stop it, media. If you can't do your job correctly, do a different job.

mccallcl: My fellow Americans and I have a right to know everything about this immediately.


No we don't.  How are you so pissed about this?  There are very obvious reasons for not releasing information to the public early in an investigation, such as the possibility that what information you have is incorrect, or that releasing it could harm the investigation itself.  Hell, remember after Sandy Hook and the media started reporting that the guy's brother was the shooter and pasted his name and face all over the place?
