jrodr018: Did you apologize for accusing those kids yesterday? LOL


I never accused them, and I've apologized for referring to them as suspects twice after the MSM started calling them that way, yes.

If they get arrested anywhere in New England, they have to rival the Elvis impersonator and his signoff in the ricin letters for general achievement in outright stupidity, right?

ScaryBottles: ivan: Cytokine Storm: I don't want to offend anyone and I know it may be insensitive to say this, but honestly they really do look like bipedal humanoids to me.

I was really hoping they would turn out to be Venusian-grown terrorists, but I fear you are right.

Me personally I was hoping these were the first shots fired in the glorious cat revolution. We need secure our border from the Persians!


You're opening a can of worms there. The moment we go up against the Persians, we'll be dealing with hoards of Abyssinians, Bengals and Siberians. Not mention Munchkins.

Apologize now?

Which I never understood. Isn't the whole point of terrorism letting people know WHY you are terrorizing them?


It depends. 'Terror' is just a type of psychological warfare; coercion, really. But if you're in a full state of 'war-on-them', you don't even need to explain yourself to your hategroup.
 
2013-04-18 06:15:27 PM  
They do look like they are middle eastern, but hard to tell with the crappy resolution of the images. Could be light-skinned Arabs or Persian. Supposedly, militant Islam groups were trying to recruit lighter skinned extremists for bombings, so who knows? Stupid to jump to conclusions yet, especially since they are just "seeking information". Remember, innocent until proven guilty folks.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: All you people who openly admit to hoping that this crime was perpetrated by "homegrown Americans" are farking disturbed.


Why? I would be relieved to find out it was a Harris/Klebold type pair. They exist; we know and accept that. Sociopaths share space with us all and sometimes they gather up a follower or followers to help them do their bidding. It is an unpleasant part of society but a part nonetheless.

You would rather it be a foreign attack? Meaning a military response, rather than a criminal trial? Whom would you prefer just attacked us?

skullkrusher: theorellior: skullkrusher: Just farking stop. You live there, perhaps you should be a little less cavalier about the whole thing and care about catching the farks rather than jacking off to what might be the case 4 or 5 steps down the road

I'm only human. You have people on Fark cheering possible war with Iran because of this crap and sometimes you just want to punch them in the dick, rhetorically. There's a lot of bullshiat people spew about Boston and Massachusetts when they're sitting in the middle of Bumfark, Montana, as if any terrorist cares two shiats about their lives, city or state. And for the people saying, "Oh, the Tea Party would never condone terrorist actions!" I can only say open your ears and listen to the rhetoric. It's all about fondling guns and blowing people up with rockets but when a liberal has violent thoughts it's time to clutch one's pearls.

I don't like being a dick, but I'm not surprised I'm being one. Sorry, again.

listen dude, I appreciate the feeling. Lifelong NY-er, friends in WTC, etc etc etc. I know the feeling. I went to school in MA, I have friends in Boston. I feel for all you guys plus I hate the farking Yankees. I know what you're going through but we are not served by engaging in politically driven speculation based on farkall. Let it settle out, make some time to have some drinks with your friends and family and let's catch these farks. Once they are nailed then we can go on about what their motivations were.


You're right. I've been avoiding these threads becaue I knew they'd piss me off. Well, I was right. I'll have a beer and chill with the people who come to my letterpress to do cool shiat. Thanks for talking me down.

ourbigdumbmouth: luxup: Amos Quito: luxup: Amos Quito: luxup: Whatever their ethnic background I can safely say that if they had walked by me I would not have batted an eyelash.

Damn, I have to say they look pretty calm for what they are about to do.


If these two actually *did* do it.

Hey, I'll admit I believe that if they didn't do it directly they sure as hell had something to do with it.This isn't from the NY Post or CNN.  This is the FBI.


Well, as the FBI themselves have had "something to do" with most of the "attempted (but foiled) terror attacks" that have taken place on US soil over the past 10 years, you may have a point.


/Can we detain these guys indefinitely without trial or charges until "the end of hostilities"?

Yeah I get it, Government is corrupt.  Not everyone is a bad guy and sometimes they actually do what they are supposed to.

Take off your tin-foil hat and just get out of the way.  Let the big boys play now.

The "big boys" start wars without using critical thinking.

if you consider yourself a big boy, chances are you're just fat.


The naive wit of imbeciles is always amusing.  Really, it's like shooting fish in a barrel.

A lot of us are hoping that it a couple of white kids just because we already have enough Muslim/Middle Eastern hatred in this country. We don't need anyone fanning the flames any further and getting innocent people hurt just because they have brown skin.

 Because if these guys are Arabic, the crazy is gonna go off the scale.

I could probably be convinced to bomb the offices of the people behind the "Rachel from Cardmember Services" scam.

Warthog: The NY Post totally identified these guys YESTERDAY:


img.gawkerassets.com

The New York Post is going get their asses sued off for this.

Those guys could be white, they look like half of the white guys I work with, or they could be of Middle Eastern decent. But one thing we can almost be certain of is that they are from the United States. On MSNBC before the FBI presser they were talking to a terrorism specialist and he explained that the government has a database of over 80 million pictures of people that have visit this country from over seas, basically everybody that comes here from a different country has a digital picture and finger prints on file. He said if they had a picture it would have been ran against this database immediately. So I think we can be fairly certain that these guys are Americans.

[www.gppgolf.com image 800x800]
/hot


That's definitely not the white hat.  The white hat on the suspect isn't fitted, it's adjustable.  It looks like a cloth tension adjustable, and not a plastic snap adjustable.  Also, it has a taller vertical dark marking on the side temple of the hat that looks similar to the number 7.

Lollipop165:

Exactly, which is why Obama's claim that this was an act of terrorism is so stupid. A random act of violence is not terror. It like saying I was terrorized when my father go cancer.

/however, if he had not said terror the Republicans would have whined for days so it was probably better to shut them up.
 
2013-04-18 06:16:49 PM  
So, it seems to me that the internet was wrong and never even came close to identifying the FBI's suspects?
 
2013-04-18 06:17:15 PM  
Has the FBI checked with the Occupy Wall Street people?

Or Occupy Boston? Whatever.

'Cause the suspects look like part of the OWS crowd.

So much DERP about what race they are. Is it really that important to you?

Because it sounds racist as hell to me. Everyone of you people that talk about it just want it to be some race so you can start your self-congratulatory circle-jerk of blame. Guess what, 3 people are dead and many more have had their lives changed forever, but it's fine as long as it fits your racist worldview. Maybe instead of being vocal racist we can wait until they find the two guys, and then....I don't know, maybe investigate their motivations.

I expected more from Fark than this. I'm disappointed. You're currently ranking worse than the teenagers from 4chan.

Good for you, if you indeed apologize. Although you may not have accused them, you did call them suspects without evidence. Anyway, good for you for recognizing it.

No, you don't "get it".

Most of the "foiled terror attacks" were honeypots - fabricated "FBI stings".


The easiest way to pick out an fbi operative in your group? He's the first one to suggest something illegal.

Not really since they pretty much just hunkered down and fled to the mountains after they pulled it off. The leaders had already left but the rest of their foot soldiers followed suit immediately in a big 'OH SHIAT'.

Strategeryz0r: Where's Alex Jones saying these photos are bogus, and it's Seal Team Six committing a false flag to let more TSA agents(I still don't get why TRANSPORTATION SAFETY agents would be on the streets rather than.. ya know.. more REAL cops but whatever) carry guns on the streets and take yours away.

This looks like domestic terrorism to a T. These guys probably watch the Alex Jones show and thought they'd show the world how it's done or some crap.

Hope they're caught soon.


It's the first thing on the Jones page.

"The FBI has attempted to blacklist photos which show men working for a private military organization wearing heavy backpacks and appearing to take part in a drill at the Boston Marathon, instead focusing on two other individuals while proclaiming, "other photos will not be deemed credible."
As Infowars has documented over the last two days, photos taken from the scene of the blast show numerous individuals wearing identical clothing while carrying heavy black backpacks, talking into cellphones and in one case placing one of the backpacks on the ground. "

It was actually '04 before he took responsibility. Coincidentally right when Bush was trying to get re-elected. Nothing about the video or its origins could be verified, so naturally some people question it's authenticity, and do make some good points suggesting it was faked.

I would rather there have been no attack at all. And I certainly wouldn't support a military response, just as I didn't support the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan.
