terrorist attack at Boston Marathon

Holy crud, I just got back from ringing in our Independence to find that there was a major terrorist attack in Boston. At least two are dead and a hell of a lot of people lost limbs and are fighting for life in the wake of two bombs exploding. Several children injured, at least one of them in critical condition. News sources are saying we should essentially be grateful as two more major bombs did not go off and if they had the carnage would be far worse. Senseless, horrible. I’m not going to point the finger at Islamists but I sure as hell suspect them. It could be crazy domestic terrorism — Waco, Oklahoma both are near anniversaries. I can’t help thinking Hezbollah, Al Quaeda, or wannabees of either. My heart is hurting so badly for the families.

Update: 8 year old little boy among the dead.

    Two bombs were detonated, injuring and killing innocent people, and a third was defused apparently and will be able to be examined by the FBI. Another explosion occurred at a library nearby apparently. The FBI is calling it a terror attack, and the media is calling it a terror attack, but Obama? Nope. I guess he will claim that he did later though if it suits him. That cow Candy Crowley can help him out by saying that she heard him say so.
    Reportedly, a Saudi national, age 20, is in the hospital with burns… that seems to be all that is known or revealed at present.
    I guess the police and DHS did not do a check of the area for suspicious packages.

    For some reason I was thinking Hezbollah too, but the reality is there are so many crazy, violent nuts out there, both foreign and domestic, it could be anybody or any group. I also read one of the dead is a kid. Who knows if this is accurate.

    I hope we keep all the families in our thoughts.

    • Lynne says :

      Mike, you are right. It could be anyone or any group. There are plenty of mentally disturbed maniacs who could act on their own, or many terrorists who have their own agenda. I wonder if we will ever know? If it is an Islamist, would Obama try to suppress this information?
      Whoever did this is evil, and that is certain. There can be no justification for this terror.

    I’m waiting for Obama to spin this as workplace violence…

    • Lynne says :

      CBS quoted one of the sources at the hospital as saying that they are “pulling ball bearings out of people”. That sounds like Hamas, al qaeda or Hezbollah, doesn’t it?
      Obama…very carefully avoiding the use of the word “terrorist”…sickening. Others at the WH are openly calling it a terrorist attack.

    I totally agree Lynne. As soon as I heard that there was schrapnel I thought the same thing. The scene looks very similar to images I have seen of bus bombings in Israel…lots of injuries in a very confined space. As for Obama and those commentators on the news that said we shouldn’t consider this a small part of a bigger plan, they totally need to get their heads out of the sand and wake up.

    I was listening to fox news at 3pm. when shep Smith made the comment that the Boston marathon was being run ( I had no idea) and that there was a report of 2 explosions near the finish line. I said what what? Then they went to break and I was headed to a different area of my work for a few mins.

    Ohh geez!

    So, who did it? Followers of the world’s most peaceful religion or crazy right wing Americans? Let’s have a look at two things: the known facts and the reactions by certain people. Then you can draw your own conclusions:

    Fact: The bombs seem to fit a pattern we have seen over the last couple of years: relatively simple, but devastating devices being brought to the location by people who are willing to risk exposure, injury or even death:

    The bombs most likely were either in backpacks or in backpacks in trash cans. The news have been consistent in reporting this and it would fit the security pattern: usually trash cans and other hiding places are being checked by the authorities before the start of the event, so that the devices most likely were deposited during the event, meaning the people bringing them risk being caught or being hurt by their own device.

    Where have we seen that before? In Israel numerous times, in London, in Madrid, in Afghanistan, in Iraq, in other places where peaceloving muslims tried to kill infidels, such in Bulgaria, India, etc.

    Where have we not seen that? Among so called right wing extremists. The only time people can come up with is Atlanta 1996, a terror attack which has never been solved.

    Also, it fits a pattern of recent unsuccessful attempts by muslims, such as Times Square and Bonn and Cologne, Germany, where devices didn’t ignite.

    Reactions: BHO’s reaction speaks volumes: until now he refuses to use the word “terrorist.” That usually means some of his muslim fellows have done it.

    Then, the media: certain facts are kept in the background, such as the injured muslim from Saudi Arabia, who was apprehended by bystanders when he tried to flee from the location of one explosion. He has injuries consistent with those someone might suffer who ignited such a device and was a bit clumsy. Most media tried to not report this.

    To make up for that, CNN mentioned minutes after the first reports that this “could be the work of domestic right wing extremists.” CBS joined in the chorus pretty quickly until everyone did. If someone so desperately tries to be political correct, it usually means that there is a lot of evidence pointing in exactly the opposite direction.

    If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck… it is a dolphin. Yeah, right, only in BHO’s and CNN’s world.
