"I don't regret setting bombs" and "I feel we didn't do enough." Bill Ayers, New York Times, Sept. 11, 2001

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...

Nixon Drones?

nilThreek: For the record, if I'm critically injured like some of the folks in the gory pics were, and there's some low-life photographer inches away from me with a camera snapping pics instead of trying to help the injured (who are obviously bleeding out and don't have anyone helping them yet), I'm going to haunt the fark out of them if there's a ghost-like afterlife...

If pic#8 guy survives (hopefully he survived ..?), I would have a major schadenfreudegasm if he goes all Liam Neeson on the camera guy...


He could sharpen his protruding tibia to a spear-like tip and use it to stab the photographer.

I'm being a complete coward about this. I heard about the bombing, but I homeschool my kids so I didn't have time to sit and read any details. A few hours ago I skimmed my FB page and saw a disgusting, derpy post about how it's all a liberal plot to disarm all of us. I quite literally gagged and shut my computer down, turned off my phone and spent the rest of the afternoon playing with my kids outside.

I know I need to get my head out of the sand sometime, but I can't stomach derp. Is there a kind farker willing to give me a cliffnotes update of what we know? Or at least an article?

 Eric Rudolph's Olympic attack is the closest one I can think of that's non specific. But apparently he felt it was.
And the vast majority of his bombings were focused on abortion clinics, gays and other "non godly" types.

I hope so too. There is another photo of that badass cowboy pinching his femoral artery.


That makes me wish that they did more than just say "WARNING: GRAPHIC IMAGE". There's quite a few levels of "graphic". Are we talking a mostly-intact dead body? Because I can... well, deal, for lack of a better word... with that. A guy who's paler than my ginger girlfriend in January from blood loss and sans legs beneath the knees, with the exception of bone shards? Not so much. They should say just what the picture is next to the "show picture" button, know what I mean?

Surool: So, after reading these threads... no one knows f*ck all about anything, and conservatives already have the "false flag operation" buzzword to claim they are being framed just in case the fact that Boston, home of the infamous Tea Party, was attacked on Tax Day (April 15) isn't some huge coincidence. How 'bout waiting to see who did it before you get defensive?


The Boston Teaparty was NEVER about taxes.

It was about tariffs being  rescinded on EITC imports without being able to protest through parliament or the crown.  History matters, and the grade school understanding of the event is 100% incorrect.  It wasn't about taxes, but about pro-protectionist colonists and Representative government.

draa: Honestly, we just don't know that yet.


Don't know what yet? That no footage has been released? I'm pretty sure we'd know about it if there was footage of a suspect placing one or more bombs. The bomb sites are known to us, and they are all covered by cameras at every possible angle, every street in every major American city has been since about 1999. Are you trying to tell me that it hasn't been enough time to review the security footage, peel off some images of the perps and put out an APB? Bullshiat. The authorities are using this time to scrub their incompetence and/or corruption out of the story, just like a bunch of criminals in the same holding cell after a robbery. Posting any and all information immediately is the best remedy against retconning or accusations of retconning later on.

Dollars to donuts, amateur footage is what solves this one, and that footage will be very embarrassing to a lot of people in power, and at least a few foot soldiers caught sleeping on the job.

Keizer_Ghidorah: tenpoundsofcheese: sirrerun: tenpoundsofcheese: The point is that whoever did this could eventually be a professor in the US and an advisor to future politicians.

I've resisted ignoring you for such a long time.

Oh no, an anonymous person on the internet no longer is able to read something I post on the internet.

OMG, worse day ever.

WTF do people make these announcements?  Do you really think anyone cares if you put them on ignore?
Are you that self-centered that you think it matters?  Seriously?

Since you don't have the guts to read what I have to say, I hereby forbid you to ever un-ignore me.  Ever.

Who needs guts to read your broken-record ramblings about Obama? Especially when you're trying to stir up shiat at a time like this.


Who actually needs to be able to read the specifics of what they write ever, really?  Even on ignore, you can pretty much predict the one-minded response of the types of posters that get put on ignore, under all threads and all circumstances.  1000 posts of "hurr derp darp barp bap Obama/Tea Party/Muslims/Americans etc. evilz bad derp burp hurr", can be tied, using relatively little imagination, to whatever topic happens to be under discussion.

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?!?


Exactly.  And why does it matter what it was like anyway?  It's not like asking someone about their vacation, because you're wondering if you should try a similar experience.  It was a horrible, terrifying ordeal which no-one wants to go through - including the poor s*ds who just did.

2013-04-15 11:13:52 PM

Just Another OC Homeless Guy: 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?


The IRA? Why would they bomb their biggest fundraisers and weapons acquirers?

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.

Just Another OC Homeless Guy: 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.


Eric Robert Rudolph (born September 19, 1966), also known as the Olympic Park Bomber, is responsible for a series of bombings across the southern United States between 1996 and 1998, which killed two people and injured at least 150 others in the name of an anti-abortion and anti-gay agenda. The Federal Bureau of Investigation considers him a terrorist.[1]

As a teenager Rudolph was taken by his mother to a Church of Israel compound in 1984; it is connected to the Christian Identity movement.[2] He has called himself a Roman Catholic in "the war to end this holocaust" (in reference to abortion).[3] He has confirmed religious motivation, but denied racial motivation for his crimes.[4]

When Kissinger suggested carpetbombing random neighbors of Viet Nam, Nixon heard "new carpeting" and was all "hell yeah, Henry, do it!"

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

[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 probably wouldn't have happened because Saddam would have already killed the group responsible, as well as their families. Or maybe he would have already killed the 50 people killed. Or maybe both groups. Really anyone involved in a "power struggle" would have likely been an enemy of Saddam and killed. We just wouldn't have heard about it, because anyone reporting it would have been killed as well.

And as for the legality of the war, I assume you're trolling based on the sheer number of resolutions from the first war Saddam continued to break.

I think you're drastically overestimating the investigative speed and power of law enforcement.

All the private security cameras from businesses, the public security cameras, you're talking possibly thousands of hours of footage looking at a very crowded area.  Were the bombs placed minutes before detonation?  Hours before in a trash can?  Keep in mind that they're starting without any clue of who to look for.  No need to rush to put out an image and have it be the wrong guy.
 
2013-04-15 11:18:16 PM

Valacirca: 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?


Sure. Or the Atlanta Olympics bombing, where not only did they railroad a totally innocent man, but the public brouhaha helped ensure the guilty man (Eric Rudolph) got away for a few extra years because everyone was focused on the not-guilty security guard. Or Oklahoma City where everyone was so focused on the non-existent Middle Eastern terrorists they almost missed the very-existent Tim McVeigh cooling his heels in a nearby jail on a traffic warrant. Or the recent Martin/Zimmerman mess that may yet result in a mistrial before it ever gets off the ground.

You just don't need to know everything immediately; and knowing everything immediately could compromise things farther down the road. Unless that's what you want, and you'd rather know erroneous information now at the expense of justice later on.

The bomb sites are known to us, and they are all covered by cameras at every possible angle, every street in every major American city has been since about 1999. Are you trying to tell me that it hasn't been enough time to review the security footage, peel off some images of the perps and put out an APB? Bullshiat. The authorities are using this time to scrub their incompetence and/or corruption out of the story, just like a bunch of criminals in the same holding cell after a robbery. Posting any and all information immediately is the best remedy against retconning or accusations of retconning later on.

Dollars to donuts, amateur footage is what solves this one, and that footage will be very embarrassing to a lot of people in power, and at least a few foot soldiers caught sleeping on the job.


Dude, I've listened to you rant on and on about how our money is being wasted, or how we have a right to know what cops know, it's not and we don't. If there's an ongoing investagation, and there is, you'll know when they tell you. It's that simple. And as far as incompetence goes, it's incompetent for you to sit there and blame cops for an act of terrorism like this when you just don't know what happened any more than the rest of us. Good god man, let them do their farking jobs and be happy they're there to do it.

Dude, seriously, shut the fark up. There's enough retardation in this thread without you adding to it.

TyrantII: The Boston Teaparty was NEVER about taxes.

It was about tariffs
 being rescinded on EITC imports without being able to protest through parliament or the crown.



tar·iff

Noun
A tax or duty to be paid on a particular class of imports or exports.

Gawd you are a boor. If it weren't for the bombing in Boston, your threadjack would be the worst thing that happened on Earth today.

dr_blasto: nilThreek: For the record, if I'm critically injured like some of the folks in the gory pics were, and there's some low-life photographer inches away from me with a camera snapping pics instead of trying to help the injured (who are obviously bleeding out and don't have anyone helping them yet), I'm going to haunt the fark out of them if there's a ghost-like afterlife...

If pic#8 guy survives (hopefully he survived ..?), I would have a major schadenfreudegasm if he goes all Liam Neeson on the camera guy...

He could sharpen his protruding tibia to a spear-like tip and use it to stab the photographer.


Believe it or not, I actually had a thought along those lines and almost mentioned it, but it being my first fark post and all, didn't want to come off as too callus before I test the waters more, lest I get ejected from Fark for breaking some unspoken rule or something I didn't know about...

/really hope the best for everyone right now, vengance and justice can come later...

I bet Best Korea and Iran are shiatting bricks right now.  This is the kind of event we'd LOVE to put at their doorstep just to make things easier.

I really wish I hadn't clicked that. The two girls in the first picture are going to haunt me for the rest of my life.
