J. Frank Parnell: Now That's What I Call a Taco!: It's entirely possible we'll never know who did this.

It remaining unsolved would be a good talking point for increased public surveillance.


You guys mean like the whole Anthrax attack?

shower_in_my_socks: It's pretty stupid that people thought the bomber was one of the injured victims in the hospital. I'm sure the only person on the planet who knew those bombs were going to go off sure as fark wasn't standing next to one of them waiting for it to explode. McVeigh was blocks away from his truck bomb when it went off, and I'm sure this @sshole was too.


A lot of bombs in Iraq and around the Middle East are carried by one guy, willingly or otherwise, and detonated by someone else.

cameroncrazy1984: s2s2s2: There was a local coach that was in communication with his runners. He said that they mentioned a lot more police and military presence than last year. He also said that within seconds of the blast, black SUVs swarmed the scene.

:/

But the important question is...were there black HELICOPTERS??

That's when you know.


They showed a lot of video over and over on TV of the blasts and the area and aftermath, I didn't see any Black SUVs "swarming" within "seconds". But maybe I missed it.

T.rex: That #8 pic... the dude in the cowboy hat is holding the guy's femoral artery, keeping him from bleeding out.


The guy in the yellow vest's also got his index finger jammed in something important like a cork.

A former coworker (whom I believe) said he did the same thing on a rescue toboggan as a Ski Patroller, nearly freezing his finger off.

I hope we find out who those guys are, rather less of course than I hope Tibia Man pulls through and becomes the next blade runner.

I obviously don't think this is the case, but I had a thought earlier that it would be pretty weird if the perpetrator ended up being the guy we've all empathized with the most, image #8 guy.

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

621 people disagree with you.

Permanently.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Provisional_Irish_Republican_Army_campa ig n_1969%E2%80%931997#Casualties

There's a difference between being an apologist and pointing out that the IRA was not indiscriminately into terror bombing civilians during the Troubles.

You're also ignoring all the deaths inflicted by the other sides in that conflict.

Here you go:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Troubles#Casualties

And you know what? The worst bombing that occurred, the one in Omagh, had several telephone calls placed warning well in advance that the bomb was going to go off. There was confusion about where the bomb was on the part of the authorities, and that was what contributed to the casualties.

It was a terrible, reprehensible act, that should not have been done, but still, nevertheless, calls were placed warning about it ahead of time.


Never said the other side(s) were angels.  The British didn't build their Empire on tea and comfy chairs.

However, that doesn't change the underlying facts; from your own link, regarding 'civilians' killed by the Army:

"It is often disputed whether some civilians were members of paramilitary organisations due to their secretive nature."

shower_in_my_socks: Cobataiwan: I predict this attack was not done on this specific day EXCEPT there was a famous marathon being run at the time.


While I give it 51/49 odds that it's homegrown vs. foreign terrorism, I agree that the event was the target, not the fact that it was tax day and the Tea Party happened in Boston. Also, if it was anti-government, they would probably attack a government building, McVeigh-style. So the event that was attacked makes me think foreign terrorists. However, nobody has claimed responsibility and they were pretty weak bombs, which is not Muslim terrorist MO. You don't train and send a terrorist all the way to the US to set-off gunpowder pipe bombs.

My money's on it being a lone nutjob with an agenda that doesn't fit neatly into the teabagger/Islamist molds.


AQ bombings lately have not been very effective. See the car bomb in NYC etc. I suspect this will turn out to be a domestic AQ offshoot cell without overseas training.

Your lone wacko theory is also good.

I forgot about Boston being the Tea Party location. So, I won't dismiss it, even though I have Tea Party leanings myself. Wackos latch on to causes. Its often the way to justify their killings. (I want to kill people, but that's not cool...but if I had a political reason...)

He was running away from the explosion. Totally suspicious.

It was removed- obviously for a reason. Why do you want to poke the Mods with a stick?

Are comments disappearing from this thread at an unusual rate or something? Every time I try to go find a post the pages are completely different, and I'm not ignoring anyone to cause which posts are on which page to change.

If people are posting inappropriate images, good job on them for quickly getting rid of the images before I see them. Someone posting Ware's pic without warning was bad enough.


Yeah, there is a pretty major cull of the thread happening, and that's not a bad thing.

I've also noticed that there is a char limit for quoting now. sweet.

http://www.ibtimes.com/meet-carlos-arredondo-cowboy-hat-wearing-hero -b oston-marathon-bombing-1194089



Let this be the turning point in American culture.  Pretty please.

A turning point where instead of Kardashians being showered with money and fame, we bestow it upon people like this guy.  Pinching off a femoral artery to keep an amputated victim from losing any more blood?  How many people can look in the mirror and say they have the balls to do something like that?

I'm almost 100% certain I would have passed out from the sight of it alone.

MustangFive: Here's my take on the likely bombing suspect(s):

FACTS:
Today is Patriot's Day.
5. It's Patriot's Day (and what could be more patriotic than rocket's red glare and bombs bursting alongside a marathon course?)


As we all know, the Tea Party has always been strongly against all forms of patriotism.  Most other terrorist, groups, on the other hand, are strongly in favor of American patriotism.

You're not as smart as you think you are, MustangFive.  We don't know anything about this attack yet.  Knock it off.

Sadly, she already told us that Boston isn't "Real America" and that the whole state was just a cesspit of Godlessness and Socialism. I think that a fair amount of the state got her message, and while she might have a few fans, and certainly folks are going to come out of the woodwork to hop all over this tragedy to extract their pound of flesh for their own ends, I don't think that it's going to go over too well out here...

dr_blasto: Nixon Drones?
[www.wmoh.com image 220x273]

Didn't Nixion just use old fashioned full-sized bombers for his illegal bombings?

Yup. He didn't fark around with the kills. None of this namby-pamby targeted shiat, you've got to remember that shag carpeting was a big deal back then and Nixon liked his booze. When Kissinger suggested carpetbombing random neighbors of Viet Nam, Nixon heard "new carpeting" and was all "hell yeah, Henry, do it!"


So I'm guessing you guys never actually have heard what G Gordon Liddy's actual voice sounds like

The Shot Heard Round the World. The Boston Tea Party. Tax Day. Somebody's making a statement.

My heart goes out to the people of Boston and those wounded or killed and their families. I spent a week in Boston once and had a blast. The people were fantastic and everyone treated me as a guest when they found out I was from out of town. I will return.

I hope the scum who did this are hunted to the edge of the earth summarily executed..

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?!?


Back in my Civil Air Patrol days, a TV reporter cornered me and asked "What is it like being a woman on a ground search team?" I answered "Just like being a man on a ground search team: I'm tired, I'm hungry, and I hurt." That kind of put an end to that line of questioning.

Then they put it on the air. In my mom's family's hometown. Where all my relatives got to see the sight of me looking like I'd had no sleep, covered with mud all down one side of my uniform, and clinging to a paper plate of lousy lasagna like it was the Holy Grail. (this was because I had in fact had no sleep, I'd slid on ice and fallen down a hill, and that godawful lasagna was the first food I'd had since a Snickers bar that pretended to be lunch)

All the facts they could be getting, and it comes down to "oh, how did you feeeel?" This might be relevant to the winner of a beauty contest or something, but a person out searching for a plane crash? Or people caught in a deadly explosion? Is that the best they can think of?

"Running while Saudi" - clearly, a reason for at least one clueless bigot to tackle him. Guy's cooperating with the cops, has denied any involvement, and cops haven't found a shred of evidence to link him to anything. The only "suspicious activity" was having some clueless bigot tackle him while claiming "suspicious activity" as justification.

Walk away slowly and very cool looking. If I had a pair of sunglasses I would put them on as the carnage unfolded around me. Hopefully I would also be wearing a duster so the air current created by the blast would blow it open.
