Because it would validate your prejudices?


Or maybe because the last time foreign terrorists launched an attack on American soil a tragic event that killed over 3000 people escalated into two wars that killed over 100,000, maimed many thousands more and bankrupted the United States. The best possible outcome for this horrific event would be homegrown terrorists no matter what their motivation was, conservative, liberal, religious, or just plain farking nuts.

It's pretty sad. I just scanned through an entire thread of speculation about the suspects, and the primary argument appears to be whether or not they're white.

Do any of you get how pathetic that is?

What's the damned difference if they're white or not? Does your world really come down to proving that these guys are Muslims or the white version of crazed conservatives? They still killed people. They still committed an act of terrorism, and whether they did it for God, Allah, Rush Limbaugh, Hillary Clinton, or Alex Jones, the ultimate point remains the same: A couple of crazy f♥ckers brought homemade bombs to the marathon with the intention of harming people.

And their punishment will be the same whether they worship your god, someone else's god, or no god at all. Their evil is the same whether it was done for another country, our country, or no country at all.

People died. People lost limbs. One family was completely shattered by this act when they lost a child, had another one crippled for life, and have a mother with brain damage. And you assholes are POLITICIZING this?

WHAT THE F♥CKING DIFFERENCE WHAT POLITICS WERE BEHIND IT? MURDER IS MURDER.

Oh, no, I get it. If it was a Muslim then the righties can all shout "See? I done toldja them sand ni♣♣ers was evil!" and if it was some right-wing white guy then all the lefties can shout, "See? It wasn't Muslims, it was sicko conservatives from America!", and if it turns out to be some batshiat crazy person of mixed ancestry and no clear heritage, then everyone will have to shut up and say, "Oh, well, it was just a nutcase after all." and forget all about him in about six months.

And either way, people will still be dead, your political agenda will be no further along the path you desire, and the villain(s) will be punished.

It's sick and sad that this is what our country comes down to: Making the race of a killer more important than justice itself.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Where the fark do you weirdos get this shiat? In your mind, the marathon bombers being foreign means we'd be dragged into another war? You have de-railed.


There are a few more steps than foreigner=invasion, so I'll walk you thru them:

Bomber is foreigner.  Country of origin of bomber is on shiat list.  Let's say it's Iran for convenience.  Iran denies involvement.  Politicians scream bullshiat, say Iran had to have some involvement.  Say that we can't allow foreign government operatives to be bombing our people. Say Obama is a coward for letting our people be killed on our soil by foreign operatives.  Say we have to prevent future attacks by invading and changing the regime of the foreign government that dared spill American blood on American soil.  Say only a traitor would argue otherwise.

It's plausible.

Now, if the bombers were home grown, there is no way any of the above can happen.  I'd prefer to take zero chance of the above scenario occurring by having the bombers be home grown.

You liberals are farking sick partisan idiots. You are hoping it to be a political opponent so you have a political edge. You are the same as the far edge muslims who cheer death for political reasons. Seriously. So pathetic that you are hoping it is a political enemy ao they will shut up. God Damn is this a sick view of life.


My two cents: I don't want the people to be white for a political gain or edge. I want them to be white so half of my Middle Eastern friends don't start calling themselves Mexican so they don't have to worry about their aunt/uncle/brother/sister being KILLED for the horrendous crime of looking like or being from the same ethnic group as the bombers (as quite a few did after 9/11).

We have to be honest with ourselves; this country will react differently depending on what race these people are. I would rather it be white to mitigate the collateral damage to the rest of the nation, not because I'm anti-right-wing.

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.

I don't think you're looking at the same pics. Black hat looks a little tan. white hat is a pasty white goofy college student.

He is not white goofy college student, he has a arab looking nose. Both are clearly semites of some sort. Both clearly middle eastern, light skinned, but middle eastern.


Or Italian.  He looks a lot like any of the thousands of light-skinned, male college students around here.
The first-guy is dark-skinned.  Beyond that, you can't tell what his ethnic background really is without having a clearer view of his facial features.
Of course, you could be right, but your jumping to the conclusion of ZOMG ARABS!!1! is a bit misguided if you're going to base it off what can be seen in the photos.

Hey, three people died here and many more so were horribly maimed but the important thing is that you hope to win the "Guees the Perp's motivation" Bingo.

But yea... those RWA are just awful folks!!!


They are.

Until the RW stops beating the drums of war at every farking opportunity, having a national platform that includes discrimination as a plank, running candidates who actually say that if elections don't go their way there are always "Second Amendment Solutions," blocking common sense legislation that actually might do something positive like the background checks bill a couple of days ago all because its passage might make the Black Democrat in the WH look good, and crafting other legislation to restrict and prevent as many non-whites as possible from voting, I'm gonna have a big problem with them.

All of that, BTW, is in addition to them being responsible for the deaths of 4,409 American service members and god-knows-how-many thousands of innocent civilians in Iraq for absolutely no farking reason other than PNAC's poster boys pulling the strings in the WH for 8 years.

Ever been sent halfway around the world and watched your friends get killed because of a lie by the RW?

I have.

As I said earlier in the thread:

Personally, I would like it to be some RW chucklenuts, for a couple of reasons:

1. No foreign misadventures as a result.
2. No misguided, ill-considered attacks by redneck dickheads on Sikhs working at gas stations just because they're wearing a turban (as opposed to a keffiyeh). No one is gonna start profiling mid-20's white dudes with douche-y clothes.
3. So that (hopefully - and likely) some RW blowhard in a position of some authority (politician, talking head, radio talker, political wonk, etc.) will say something defending them, thereby causing the entirety of America to finally turn their backs on the Teatards.


A loyal opposition is not the same as being the party of not just No, but the party of "No, even if what is being proposed is our own idea, but since the Democrats and the president are now in favor of it, we're against it." We need a loyal opposition party, but the GOP ain't it.

People driving a car over a sidewalk full of tourists and killing 'em, also not terrorism, just mass murder.  Just choosing another weapon (bomb) shouldn't automatically make it terrorism either.

that bosnian sniper: The Boston Marathon, for as little notice as it gets here, is a major runners' event globally and draws worldwide participation. It's a huge multicultural event, which means it's a prime choice for a white supremacist, Christian Identity theologist, or militant white nationalist. Especially considering negative stereotypes of marathons and running events being dominated by Africans and folks of African descent, and the heavy participation of Africans and folks of African descent in these events.


And, just to drive this home, in Monday's race  half the top finishers were Ethopians and Kenyans. Not even a third were from the US, only a third were from North America altogether (and let's not forget, to white supremacists Mexico doesn't even count), and just over a third were even from Commonwealth countries  and North America put together.

For some reason, I was hoping these guys were home-grown anomalies. But - fuzzy as the pics may be - they look a little...not-white to me. As security and surveillance in the U.S. and abroad has improved, Al Qaeda and other terrorist organizations are encouraging followers to break off on their own and kinda crowd-source terrorism. If these guys turn out to be Middle Eastern, they could very well be following that advice. which would also explain why there's no claims of responsibility yet. Lone wolves don't necessarily have PR, and the organizations that spawned them (Al Qaeda, etc) may not even know it was one of their followers.

Uh, coming in through Canada isn't that tough.  The border is 10 times as long and it isn't guarded any better.  Where do you think the immigrants we get from the Slavic nations are coming in from?

Getting into Canada in the first place is difficult, but not if you're on a student visa.  The only reason we have so much illegal immigration from the south is because the people who want in are already living there in the first place.


If you haven't been paying attention over the years, they have done a pretty good job at stopping this type of stuff at the Canadian border. The Canadians are very capable and aren't a bunch of Duddly Doorights.

A man wearing a cap, sunglasses and a black jacket over a hooded sweatshirt looked at Jeff, 27, and dropped a bag at his feet, his brother, Chris Bauman, said in an interview.
Two and a half minutes later, the bag exploded, tearing Jeff's legs apart.

And their punishment will be the same whether they worship your god, someone else's god, or no god at all. Their evil is the same whether it was done for another country, our country, or no country at all.

People died. People lost limbs. One family was completely shattered by this act when they lost a child, had another one crippled for life, and have a mother with brain damage. And you assholes are POLITICIZING this?

Bomber #1 is the leader - he was walking in front, looking more buttoned-down and serious, and he dropped off his sidekick, who seemed to just be going along for the ride, at the first location (making sure he followed through) before moving on to the second location. There may not be a bigger motive or agenda beyond just being murdering psychopaths, since it's difficult to find any possible motive for this attack. What group wants to bomb a marathon?

... and to Shatner:

Get a life, will ya?

That said, here's my suspicion: the law enforcement types have these two farkheads within their grasp, and they're posting the pics to see if anyone recognizes them and/or kicks up some social media traffic about them - 'OMG did you see Farkhead?' - to a.) build more of a case and b.) potentially see if they're just the bag-men [yes, I really just did that] for someone higher up the chain.

Right now they have photos placing two guys at certain points at certain times; not quite close enough to file charges, but enough to support more intel gathering.

If there's even a hint that someone ordered the bombings, there's no way any legit law enforcement person would leak word of it until these two were already in their sights [as in, at least under active surveillance]. That may have been behind the "oops, sry, no suspects kthxbai" from Wednesday.

I'm not going to play the racial guessing game, but I do think they'll announce domestic suspects a lot more quickly than foreign, simply given the many layers of overseas intel that need to be navigated before confirming foreign involvement.

No, Zero. The point is that we realize justice will not be had either way.

Most of what I see here is the concern and acknowledgement that the race of the bombers MIGHT matter, and the wish that it is accurate so that the lowest number of non-involved people are affected by it. It just so happens that a lot of us agree that the least social collateral damage will occur if the bombers are white.

Which party authorized blowing up American citizens with rockets?

the GOP of course.

Killing US citizens with drones is not the GOP.
Guess again, I will give you one more chance to guess which President did that and which party he belongs to.


People who publicly denounce their citizenship, swear loyalty to our enemies, flee the country to join up with their new friends, and actively plot against us are no longer citizens. They are enemy combatants and will be treated as such.

Lsherm: ongbok: 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.

I'm not calling it either way, but if has the idea of someone entering the country illegally passed your mind?  It isn't unheard of.


Yeah it is possible, but in reality the logistics of bringing somebody in the country illegally to do this type of attack isn't as easy as you think. If you were going to bring somebody in from out of the country it would be easier to bring them in legally on a round trip flight a week or two before the attack with a planned departure on the day of the attack or the day after. That way they will be out of the country before they are identified. Or if they were a foreigner already in the country, on a work or student visa, have them already scheduled on a flight to leave the day of the attack or the day after.

But more than likely if this had been an foreign Islamic attack, it would have more than likely a suicide attack.

* I will predict the upcoming Mass Media narrative in the news soon..

News - "Two goofy scruffy looking drugged out 'whitish' looking men have been identified as the bombers. They attacked the Boston Marathon runners and families and children because they really hate our bloated corrupt government and our American way of life! Not that that makes any sense whatsoever, but just take our word for it! They are known to belong to a 'whitish' supremacist, gun rights, militia, patriot, veteran, ultra-conservative, Reagan Republican book club group who are addicted to freedom, gardening, hiking, naps and enjoy living in the country. Just sickening! These are the new terrorists! Disgusting! We must act now and pass more useless, intrusive and fascist legislation against these evil people!"

"Oh, and never mind those Navy Seals looking guys all over the place with huge backpacks or those silly bomb drills or spotters on the roofs of buildings.. They were just there for the over time pay.. Of course they didn't react to the bombing like everyone else! They are highly trained security military guys and have developed reflexes to mute natural reflexes to explosions."

It will go something like that.. maybe not quite as 'honest'.. They probably will never get to the second paragraph though..

I don't know what is worse... people who have already decided this is islamist terrorism, and think these guys look Arabic, or those who insist they are white guys, so there is no way they could be islamist terrorists.

What if it turns out to be Wilbur Smith of Jacksonville, NC, converted to Islam? Zealots tend to be more fanatical than those born into a religion, and usually used as fodder in risky operations.

What if it turns out to be Abdullah Al Amin, an immigrant business owner, converted to Lutheranism, pissed off because Obamacare is forcing him into bankruptcy?

Personally I think they aren't the least bit concerned with being ID'd or considered as suspects or else they wouldn't have bombed what was probably one of the most actively photographed and video taped locations in the United States at that point in time.  Heck, pretty much anyone embarking on this type of thing has to be expecting they're rapidly approaching their expiration date the second that bomb goes off.

What I also find interesting is black hat guy appears to be just behind white hat in that photo...but the bombs were placed several blocks apart.  Why bother meeting back up at the location before the bombs went off?  Has the FBI said for certain these were on timers and not remote detonated?

They are police or federal, maybe even contract security.  Like the sniper team on the roof that there are pictures of.  They have their bags after the explosion, as seen in the picture you posted yourself (the one where they are standing there on their phones/radios is from a larger picture taken of the aftermath of the explosion).

Seriously, conspiracy nuts don't even do any research.  I saw some photo claiming trees were photoshopped in or out of some picture which of course meant it was a cover up, but if you took like 3 minutes to look at it you can see that the tree is just behind a news channel graphic.

You mean this guy, the man who had renounced his US Citizenship, and was actively involved as an illegitimate combatant in an asymmetrical group engaged in a declared war against the United States?

Looks like you failed (again) in reading comprehension.

He did not renounce his citizenship.
They introduced a resolution that claimed that since he allegedly was engaged in treasonous acts that that has effectively renouncing citizenship.
So they can charge you with something, not convict you, then say you are not a citizen, then blow you up.

Renouncing by the way is a process that is much more than just saying "I renounce my citizenship".

Don't forget the US citizen traveling with them.


Both Romney and Newt, the only candidates to get the question in  the foreign policy debate, both supported the use of drones to get al Alwahi.  The GOP has no problem with using drones under those circumstances, and you are either trying to obfuscate the issue or are just uninformed.

NorCalLos: Peki: itazurakko: jonjr215: To me, this is feeling less and less like terrorism, and more and more like Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold.

I have to admit I'm surprised no one ever stops to ponder that, really.  I mean, people shoot up a school for whatever sick thrill, no one calls it terrorism (and they shouldn't). People driving a car over a sidewalk full of tourists and killing 'em, also not terrorism, just mass murder.  Just choosing another weapon (bomb) shouldn't automatically make it terrorism either.

(Not to say that mass murder for ordinary thrill killer reasons is not terrible, but...)

Yeah, I'm not seeing much of a difference between Aurora, Co., Newtown, CT., and this in terms of "terrorism" but apparently I'm in a minority.

/except maybe these " real terrorists" were actually less effective than the others (in terms of body count)

Well, there's the matter of more than one perpetrator/conspiracy. That makes it more likely that there's an agenda rather than plain mental/emotional problems.


Thinking back to college, the definition of terrorism also includes the intent to instill fear in a group of people for gain. I don't think the trench coat mafia, Kliebold, or the Sandy Hook kid were trying to do that. Their motives were either revenge (trench coats, sandy hook) or just plain blood lust and ego stroking.

Hell, I'd bet each one of them has individually caused more deaths (indirectly from stealing people's money) than the aforementioned bombers.

If a lone wolf/home grown terrorist group blew up one of those call centers the prosecution would have a hard time finding a jury in the entire country that would convict them. They'd probably have to get the case moved to Ohio and empanel a jury made up entirely of the Amish.

MagSeven: That and a white supremacist/nationalist/separatist isn't usually in the business of trying to blow up black people who are actually going back to Africa like they tell them to.


White supremacism doesn't work that way.

White supremacists generally feel that, even if they're foreigners who go back home when they're done, coming over here and winning "our" races is an insult to "our" identity and degrades "our" pride. It's like if your neighbor came over, ate your food, farked your toilet and took a shiat on your wife, then left you to clean up the mess. And, your neighbor has a really big dick and knows how to use it, so your wife follows him home to boot.

So it's better if they never come over, denigrate "us" and "our" traditions and culture, by participating in "our" activities, to begin with. You get "them" to not do that, by making "them" too scared to come over in the first place. You know, kind of like how in the South under Jim Crow, literacy tests and poll taxes were there "just in case" black people were willing to brave the noose to go to the polls in the first place.

J. Frank Parnell: ongbok: 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.

Aside from criminal databases, a lot of CCTV have been using facial recognition for years now already, most notably in airports. Hell, Facebook even uses facial recognition. Not only on people with Facebook accounts, but anyone in any pictures posted on accounts.

It strikes me as odd they're pretending it's so hard to pin a name to a face in this day and age. Maybe they just don't want people to know how easy it is to do. Or they're just letting this thing play out in acts.


My guess is that the reason they took so long to release these pictures to the public is that they were running them through every database they have available. I would even imagine that they have solicited the help of social media websites to run the pictures through their databases also. The problem is that if they aren't active on social media, don't have a criminal history, don't have a drivers license or had any interaction with any government service and haven't traveled internationally, their pictures wouldn't be in any of those databases. And as hard as it may be for some to believe, there are many people who are like that.

We have to be honest with ourselves; this country will react differently depending on what race these people are. I would rather it be white to mitigate the collateral damage to the rest of the nation, not because I'm anti-right-wing.

Anti-Government: They usually restrict their attacks on Federal organizations, I can't recall them ever attacking regular citizens


The Boston Marathon, for as little notice as it gets here, is a major runners' event globally and draws worldwide participation. It's a huge multicultural event, which means it's a prime choice for a white supremacist, Christian Identity theologist, or militant white nationalist. Especially considering negative stereotypes of marathons and running events being dominated by Africans and folks of African descent, and the heavy participation of Africans and folks of African descent in these events.

As far as anti-government, in the anarcho-survivalist or tax protester territory, the symbolism and historic significance of Boston as a city, and the date, cannot be overstated.

Just shut up if not show me anywhere it says Al Qaeda waited a month to claim responsibility.

Stop being such a freaking idiot

9-11 took 3 years: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/9-11_attacks#al-Qaeda
London took 2 months : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/7_July_2005_London_bombings#Claims_of_re s ponsibility
Madrid took a couple of days: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2004_Madrid_train_bombings#Responsibilit y

So yeah keep on screaming about Teabaggers (who haven't done anything) or some shadowy christian extremists who have done a non-abortion related attack in 17 years

The most likely people responsible are in no particular order
   White Power (big international event), Anti-Government group (was Patriots Day), anarchists/psycho, AQ or AQ sympathizers


Also I read the page you linked to in its entirety and I didn't find a single mention of when responsibility was claimed. Nice try, I'll concede that Tats may be right the three pages on wiki concerning this are a little vague so it could have been as long as a month. But three years later? As I said I found nothing that says that in any of them including the one you cited.

pedobearapproved: Markoff_Cheney: pedobearapproved: 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.

because 4chan is much worse than here.

Sad that you're getting chastised by a guy with a stupid name? I'll change my name is Markoff_Cheny_is_a_douche if it'll make you happy.


at least spell it right if you are going to.  something tells me you missed the reference and that your butthurt is misguided at best.  i didnt get chastised by anyone here.
although you have a point, 4chan is in 'get shiat done' mode, and fark is in 'what demographic can we blame to make myself feel better about my own views of either brownish people or right wing domestic terrorists' mode.
albeit 'get shiat done mode' over there involves way more pictures of tits and more than a few shiatty photoshops of dogs farking in the background of the post explosion chaos.

Well we know how well that worked out for Dorner.


someone who puts in the time, does the research and learns from past attacks could pull something like this off...and maybe get away long enough to get another attack before they get caught and/or killed.  don't assume this is the work of a random lunatic, or that a lunatic can't stick to a long term plan.

violentsalvation: I hope they are caught before they bomb again.


i'm wondering if they had an escape plan.  or if they even planned what they were gonna do after this bombing....they had to know they'd be the center of a massive coordinated manhunt.  with that much in the way of resources heading their way they had to have some sort of plan to avoid capture and possibly go do...what?  move to their next target?  flee the country?

if these guys are single issue nut jobs, it should be fairly easy to catch them tho.  most crazies don't plan much beyond the bombing.  escape tends to not occur to them so they don't cover their tracks.

iat's not the skin tone, but the facial features IMO are more telling.

Look, I'm a total whitey from the Midwest so I'm clearly no expert, but I live in SE Michigan and the immigrant population from that part of the world is very well represented here and skin tone isn't consistent, but the side view of the bro-geek with the hat on backwards looks very much from that part of the world.

I don't think you're looking at the same pics. Black hat looks a little tan. white hat is a pasty white goofy college student.


He is not white goofy college student, he has a arab looking nose. Both are clearly semites of some sort. Both clearly middle eastern, light skinned, but middle eastern.

Charlie Chingas: Can we just blame a right wing extremist/librul/christian/muslim/illegal/your mom???


Can we get Bill Ayers' view on this matter. I'm curious if he feels enough devastation has been caused by this event, or does he think a few more should occur to drive the point home.
