somedude210: It's Fox saying this, when an immigration reform bill is going through Congress at the moment that is not popular with the Right, so tell me why I should believe this story?

Because it's not from CNN?

2wolves: Because People in power are Stupid: I predict that the one surviving asshole is going to do very well in prison.

Super max with one hour a day outside his cell.

For one hour a day, he's going to need to really watch out for his cornhole.

mr_a: Why do people that hate the US insist on coming here?

Air conditioning, mostly.

Sybarite: Did they actually ask the guy, or were they just racist on top of everything else?

I'm reminded of Danny Glover in Lethal Weapon 2, "I want to go to South Africa and free my oppressed brothers!"

"But yer black."

If he is chewing gum.

The race they targeted was an international sporting event with athletes from 97 countries. There was ZERO expectation that victims would only be US citizens, and every expectation that there would be foreigners in the crowd.

They did not care who they blew up. It makes no sense at all that they would suddenly care who they shot.

Looks like someone has never been to a marathon before. Yes, it is an international event, but it is so overwhelmingly (white) American it is not even funny. Besides, by the time of the explosions the Kenyans were probably done with the marathon by two hours.

My default is to believe this story until it is proven otherwise. ]I doubt I can disabuse you of that notion so I won't try.

mr_a: I just finished reading Mark Bowden's "Guests of the Ayatollah", about the Iranian Embassy takeover.

One of the highlights- one of the guards asked one of the hostages if he thought that the whole incident would hurt his chances of getting a US visa after it was all over.

Why do people that hate the US insist on coming here?

PJ O'Rourke put it best. America is a gorgeous supermodel and the third world is a teenage boy. If they can't have us a chance to pester us will do just as well.

With one of the coolest house-destroying scenes and one of the cheesiest escape scenes in movie history.
