epyonyx: Anyone else think that the bombing was just a random nutjob? Wouldn't a terrorist group have claimed this by now?

My bet is it will be Frank Jerkowitz, 3rd generation American, ex-military with two tours of Afghanistan, and a grudge against Big Fitness, and/or the Vitamin Industry.

But I've been led to believe that the world is a binary place and everything he does or says is automatically wrong.  You mean it's more complex than that?

First the Pakistan Taliban and the Ayatollah. I love them coming out of the woodwork to say "It wasn't me! It wasn't me!"

So, basically this was a "We condemn the bombings done to the infidels in the nation of the Great Satan, for the innocent bloodthirsty Americans do not deserve such death, they instead must be stoned" type of apology.

Let's see. Mourning the victims of an attack then blaming innocents for the attack. Where have I heard that bigoted, barbaric spew before? Oh, I remember!

JERRY FALWELL: And, I know that I'll hear from them for this. But, throwing God out successfully with the help of the federal court system, throwing God out of the public square, out of the schools. The abortionists have got to bear some burden for this because God will not be mocked. And when we destroy 40 million little innocent babies, we make God mad. I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People For the American Way - all of them who have tried to secularize America - I point the finger in their face and say "you helped this happen."

PAT ROBERTSON: Well, I totally concur, and the problem is we have adopted that agenda at the highest levels of our government. And so we're responsible as a free society for what the top people do. And, the top people, of course, is the court system.

Who knew we had backward, intolerant, jack-asses that spread hate in order to bring people to them? You know, Secret MuslinsTM.

I'm pretty sure they did it not to be the next The Iraq.  People were warning Saddam to condemn 9/11.  They said if he didn't the US would target him.  He didn't.

Bombs designed specifically to inflict maximum carnage among innocent civilians gathered for a marathon are not the same as weapons designed specifically to limit the damage as much as possible to the target, which happens to be the type of terrorists that plan/facilitate/carry out the aformentioned style of attacks.

Not the same at all, he does not have a point, Assholla Dumbhiney needs to STFU.  Innocent civilians getting caught up in a military strike on a valid target are victims too, don't get me wrong.  But they weren't being targeted by us.  Drone jocks do not score points by body count.  It's binary.  Was the target destroyed?  Yes/no.

Terrorists score points by body count and media sensationalism.  Try to remember that farkers.

Mugato: epyonyx: Anyone else think that the bombing was just a random nutjob? Wouldn't a terrorist group have claimed this by now?

I've been saying that since the beginning. Terrorists normally take responsibility and make some statement. Frankly with all the nutjobs out there and how easy it is to make bombs, I'm surprised this doesn't happen a lot more often.

O_o  Do you hear the knocking at your door yet? They'll probably just flash-bang ya first anyway...
