Domestic terrorism: Study shows sharp rise in extremist 'patriot' groups
Researchers compare this rise in activity to that just before the Oklahoma City bombing

Srsly, the chances are that this is Islamic terrorism. Check bombings world wide. 90% of them are from Islamic terrorists. You guys keep hoping and hoping. Its quite sick. Who knows maybe your little fantasy will come true this time.

Xcott: InmanRoshi: The entire purpose of an act of political terrorism is to make a statement.   Not making the statement to tie it to your politics kinda defeats the purpose.

I see your logic and raise you the Atlanta Olympic bombing.  Eric Lee Rudolph didn't issue any statement claiming credit, and it was only tied to him one or two years later.  His choice of target didn't seem to send a clear political message about anything, and it was anyone's guess why some dude bombed the Olympics.

If you have a subculture like the 90s militia subculture or white nationalists, a terrorist act may simply be an attack on the USA, and only intended to have symbolic meaning to other members of the subculture, not for the general public.  The OK city bombing was intended to be a signal for other militia types to rise up and revolt against the USA, for example.


I think a lone nutter like Rudolph has to stay quiet because there is no one else to advance the cause if he's caught.     If it's a multi-national, muti-facetied organized  political organization like Al Qaeda, I imagine they're getting in front of cameras as soon as possible.   Didn't they do precisely that with 9/11?    The only plausible way I could see this being an international political network is if it's a group that wants to keep their association to themselves (see Pakistani ISI)

thiefofdreams: draa: Void_Beavis: No. There were no dog patrols present at the sites where the bombs went off during the race, nor working up and down the race route during the race checking the crowds out. This was corroborated by several of the eyewitness accounts that I saw tonight interviewed by the reporters. In New York during any major event like this since 9/11 and during major traffic holidays at places like Grand Cental and Penn, there are almost certainly to be seen dog bomb patrols actively seeking out any packages left unattended for just such a thing. Yet to a person (at least from what I saw) at this marathon reported none such patrolling. If this is true, whoever responsible for securing this event needs to be questioned about this and be held accountable. It's rediculous (if true). I mean, yes it's not possible to have a dog patrol in the right place at the right time always but just like any security expert will tell you, securing soft targets like this is all about reducing risks. Having such patrols does that and to not do it is irresponsible.

Come on man. We've all been to sporting events and concerts and festivals and there's just no way that you can protect everybody all the time. If there were 1 cop/1 dog every 100 feet today, it would have taken 1000+ of each to cover 26.2 miles. And that's just one side of the street. There's no way you could do it even if you tried. Especially when you have mulitple events going on all around the country at any given time. I understand your point but it really doesn't make sense in these type situations.

Everybody is looking for someone to blame but blaming the cops/feds in this type of thing is senseless. There were no advance warnings for people to ignore. There was no clues that people overlooked. It was just one of those "shiat happens" type of things imo. This was something that can happen anywhere at anytime and there's just no way to effectively stop them all. In fact, I think the cops/feds have done a damn good job k ...

If you can pin it on security it is a big old bogey man that is government. He really just wants to blame it on Obama but he doesn't have the stones.

For one minute can we stop being partisan farktards and just be humans. A tragedy happened today and all of those pointing fingers and screaming racist shiat are not helping. You are putting the country that I love to shame in a horrible display.

Thank you to all those praying for the victims and donating to red cross. I am off to give blood tomorrow, not for Boston, but because it is the right thing to do. Perhaps more people should do the right thing, and right now that might mean, shutting up and waiting to find out before going off on Alex Jonesesque tirades.


I don't think I ever had the closest intention of blaming Obama for this. I honestly don't understand where you even came up with that, unless you're just trolling.

Of course the thread is starting to wear old to the point where the ratio of troll to non-troll posts becomes higher, so perhaps we've successfully fermented this thread in the Fark wine cellar of comments.

Then why wasn't the trash can removed prior to the race? Again, this sort of thing isn't new.

So much of this leads me to believe proper security measures weren't carried out for this event. From several eyewitness accounts saying there was no dog presence to the lax security around removing trash cans...


 Because if they had removed the trash cans, there'd be farking trash everywhere.

 Look, dude, you're viewing this incident with the wisdom of hindsight. OF COURSE 'they' could have done this or that which might have prevented things. But the Boston Marathon isn't the only time or place where large groups congregate and could be the victims of shrapnel bombs. Youcan't lock down every aspect of human endeavor. If they took every security precaution you now wish they had taken, bombs would probably have gone off somewhere else instead.

 Your statement that they should have removed the trash cans for a marathon makes as much sense as the TSA confiscating nail clippers and water bottles. They are both vain attempts to identify security failures in hindsight and are frankly both overreactions.

 You feel that a bad thing happened, and you're out for blood, looking to blame someone. Blame whoever planted those farking bombs, because they're responsible. Not the poor saps who were tasked with trying to secure a 26 mile long perimeter playing host to thousands of people.

 There is no way to stop the sort of thing that happened today. Just this past year alone - the Aurora movie theater massacre; the Newton elementary school shootings. Are you going to call for the heads of the movie theater ushers and the one rent-a-cop on duty at the elementary school, too, for their gross security failures?

 The best you can do is strive to create a world in which people just don't want to do this sort of thing. It's not as easy and quick as 'removing trash cans' but I think you'll find that in the end, nothing else will farking work.

When you come into a thread that is about a tragedy and the only thing you harp on is what an inept job the security detail, ie dogs/security you are directly calling out the government, and there are plenty already blaming the evil government and the O for this. There has been enough questioning of what happened around the event. I would just like to see everyone back off and give more care and understanding to those victims that sitting back playing armchair NSA agent.

2 and 6 are both even numbers.  EVEN.  This is somebody getting even.  Another term for getting even is payback.  Who starred in payback?  Mel Gibson.  Half of 26 is 13.  What was Mel Gibson in 13 years ago?  The Patriot.  Patriot Day.

This is payback for Mel Gibson's wife not blowing him in the hot tub.  Study it out.

Can you somehow fit Obama into this? I can't accept your crazy conspiracy theories involving the maiming of American citizens unless you implicate our president in them. Find a way to stuff him into your theory, and I'll ride with you.


Well, who has Mel Gibson got in trouble for blaming things on?  The Jews.  Who has proven himself no friend to Israel?  Obama.  A marathon is 26 miles, the Obamas were married 21 years ago.  26-21=5.  Malia was born 5 years after the Obamas were married.  After Malia came Sasha and then the Obamas took a break from having kids.

I'm not ruling out any possibility.   I don't have a dog in this fight.    It's amazing to me that you would immediately rule out a lone right wing nutter when the last time a home made bomb was detonated at a crowded international sporting event on American soil it was done by a lone right wing nutter.    It's almost  like you have a vested cause in assuring crazed far right wing politics aren't associated with this act, or something.

There was the kid setting pipe bombs off in mail boxes. He wanted to create a smiley face pattern on the maps in the papers.

I also notice that everyone seems to "forget" the left wing bombers our country has seen. Those OWS guys that wanted to take down a bridge. The guy who flew into an IRS building who you all assumed was a right winger but his writings all quoted the Communist Manifesto. The shooters at holocaust museum, the environmental nuts, discovery channel shooter etc.

InmanRoshi: Didn't they do precisely that with 9/11?


Nope. Al Qaeda always remaisn very cagey about their attacks, they praise them but do not take specific credit for them. This allows them to get double mileage in the ME by simultaneously seeming like big "heroes" and then spreading conspiracy theories about Israel or the U.S. or other targets actually carrying out the attacks.
 
2013-04-16 01:10:53 AM

Void_Beavis: I'm not insinuating a conspiracy theory here. All I'm saying is that if this is true, it seems to indicate some pretty shiatty security precautions for such an event like this.


I'll agree it's possible that security could have been better. I don't know for sure. Would it have mattered in the end? Who knows but probably not. Events like this are the chance you take when you go to gatherings with a lot of people. As I said, we've all been in places where security could have been better. The simple fact is that the person who did this would have probably went to a place where there was no security since they were likely hellbent on doing it no matter what. People that do this type of thing will do it no matter what, just that they'd do it somewhere less secure. If it had of happened 5 miles from where it did would people would be complaining that "they didn't do enough" as well? Like a shopping mall or a park? Probably, but my point is there's just no way to stop every event like this either way. Sadly it's the chance you take when you leave home now-a-days. Sucks but that's the way it is.

More words don't make you right. It's common security protocol, at least in manhattan, to remove trash cans in areas with higher crowd density during events like this, for just such a reason. It makes cleanup of those areas more difficult after the event but it removes yet another vector for high risk attack. Again it's about mitigating your highest risks. Of course you can't secure everything. But you do try to limit your risk exposure to the highest risks.

During a marathon of this size, the crowd density will be thickest at the starting point, as well as the finish line. Lock down those areas at least. Then work from there. Removing trash cans and placing receptacles in areas which are far from crowds is part of that common sense standard protocol. Having dogs present working through those crowds in those areas searching for unattended packages is another common sense standard protocol. From all indications, neither of these things were performed at this event. If true, it's irresponsible.

Now I'm sure you're trolling, so this will be my last response to your idiocy. Please just shut the fark up, you clearly don't know what you're talking about.

Why would there be garbage cans near an area where  many people gathered and at a place and time where the participants may desire liquid refreshment?  Craziness! Craziness and incompetence!  And don't get me started on people even gathering for any length of time anywhere.  The police are lax in their duties should they not just huck tear gas anywhere that more than 5 people are congregating on the Eastern seaboard.  Maybe they should huck a bomb dog, followed by tear gas.

It could easily be Islamic terrorism. They love their symbolic dates. I'm sure April 15, Tax Day, Patriot Day, and the day Lincoln died are all symbolic events in Islamic faith. And Boston, of course, everyone remembers when the heretics were thrown in the harbor by the Caliphate. And April 19th is the date of the actual Battles of Lexington and Concord, the real shot heard round the world, the first battle in the American Revolution, another known Muslim holiday. But really, who knows where Lexington and Concord are today.

Maybe you can direct as much dislike as you have toward the security detail, that you can direct the next Boston Marathon? Maybe just maybe you can use your energy to start a charity to help those in need due to the bomb. You know, instead of sitting on here saying how it is not a conspiracy while it is a conspiracy.

Rudolph wasn't a lone nutter, he was affiliated with Army of God. It's just that Army of God was more interested in casualties than with credit and thus he and the rest of them kept their mouths shut.

Plus, if it is just one guy, the chances of him getting caught seem somewhat higher than if he's got a support network behind him.

So next year will be the first annual three-legged Boston memorial marathon?

BSABSVR: Well, who has Mel Gibson got in trouble for blaming things on? The Jews. Who has proven himself no friend to Israel? Obama. A marathon is 26 miles, the Obamas were married 21 years ago. 26-21=5. Malia was born 5 years after the Obamas were married. After Malia came Sasha and then the Obamas took a break from having kids.

*Gasp*

Obama is framing Mel Gibson to distract us from Sasha's spring break trip, but his unconscious mind can't help but give himself away.

I was commenting more on those pushing that either security was too tight or too lax. It was meant more as satire. Perhaps I should have tagged it.

If they were wanding everyone and searching all bags, some would scream it is violation of the Fourth Amendment.

If they did not wand everyone and search all the bags, some would scream it was not invasive enough and the government needs to do more.

Some people can only see in extremes and that was what I was attempting to convey.

I've got Malkin on the phone and Breittbart's carcass on skype. They're saying that this is news to them, and have promised to keep us anonymous as sources.

EDIT: Alex Jones just crawled out from behind a hedge in my backyard, and used sign language to inform me that I will be on his podcast tomorrow using voice-modifying technology to protect myself. The world needs to know this info. No more bullshiat! Truth now!


If this isn't all over the major media sites by tomorrow, it's 100% proof of how deep the rabbit hole goes.  And Richard Jewell "passed away" today of all days.  Convenient!

Jaykzo: impaler: Christ, Void_Beavis, is an idiot.

How can he be an idiot when he clearly knows exactly who to blame in this situation? Anyone who knows how to prevent a spontaneous act of terror and destruction can not just be called an
idiot. Give the man his respect! He and he alone is positive he knows how to prevent these sort of incidents, and he's nice enough to share that knowledge with us Internetters instead of applying his talent as an FBI/DoD/DHS agent.

A true patriot!

I hope it's a loner white guy, too many people of Middle Eastern and South Asian ancestry are going to have a terrible time otherwise.

Boojum2k: InmanRoshi: Didn't they do precisely that with 9/11?

Nope. Al Qaeda always remaisn very cagey about their attacks, they praise them but do not take specific credit for them.



If you were an imaginary "terr-rist organization", wouldn't you do the same?

Void_Beavis: During a marathon of this size, the crowd density will be thickest at the starting point, as well as the finish line. Lock down those areas at least. Then work from there. Removing trash cans and placing receptacles in areas which are far from crowds is part of that common sense standard protocol. Having dogs present working through those crowds in those areas searching for unattended packages is another common sense standard protocol. From all indications, neither of these things were performed at this event. If true, it's irresponsible.

Now I'm sure you're trolling, so this will be my last response to your idiocy. Please just shut the fark up, you clearly don't know what you're talking about.


 You're still missing the point that no security can ever be enough for this sort of thing. And now you're talking about sniffing dogs wandering through streets covered in litter because there are no trash cans. Dogs like to sniff random trash. There are thousands of people about. You can't honestly thing a couple of 'bomb sniffing dogs' are going to rule out this sort of tragedy. Ever known a dog that DIDN'T sniff a trash can?

 And if you think that I'm 'trolling' because I'm arguing with your idiocy, then, well... that's just another subject you don't know anything about.

 /Not the one calling for security to be 'held accountable' as if they were the murderers

thiefofdreams: Look we can either be a free people or a police state.



No. It's not an either/or scenario. You can have proper security and checkpoints at major events like marathons, NFL games, etc. without turning the entire country into a 24/7 police state.

thiefofdreams: Void_Beavis: Samwise Gamgee: Void_Beavis:
words

Look we can either be a free people or a police state. It seems that no matter which we are people biatch. Funny how that works. This event will be used as a catalyst for both extremes. I don't like it much that it will, but it will. You are playing directly into that.

Maybe you can direct as much dislike as you have toward the security detail, that you can direct the next Boston Marathon? Maybe just maybe you can use your energy to start a charity to help those in need due to the bomb. You know, instead of sitting on here saying how it is not a conspiracy while it is a conspiracy.


Except you've not only missed my point, but...

You know what. Screw it. I've sufficiently explained my position. Secure the areas with the highest crowd density. I'm sorry you people think its like a city-wide lockdown when ive said nothing of the sort but hey, who needs reading comprehension anyway.

God damn at least someone here gets my point.

An event should not be referred to as the "first annual" because it hasn't become "annual" until it has occurred in several consecutive years.

Thanks for the laugh, seriously.
