What can we build from the information we have so far? I don't mean political motives, but rather "why a marathon".

Cameras, infamy. A terrorist attack, in print, means little. Just as we feel little reading about war, only when we see it and can visually experience the morbid catastrophies can we really feel the issue.

But we have video; photos.

Whoever did this to such an innocent event did it purely for casualty count and for it to be visible. Whatever political motives the dirt bag(s) had, I want to say here and now that they were a coward for choosing a non-political crowd just to cause harm and death. What politics can be weened from this event?

This is no plane in an IRS building.

There's no manifesto. There's no one claiming this.

I don't know who did this, but whatever reason they have for why is sullied by their absolutely disgraceful hostility towards fellow human beings.

That statement I just said is not political, I know well enough that lone wolves can't be held up as spokespeople for entire movements, and I'm not going to make the pathetic morbid wish that this wasn't done by a "leftie". Whether it was or not does not serve their politics, nor mine. I'm not going to compare this asshole to the people they may identify with.

I know what this will turn into; just as has occurred here. This will become politics, as little as I wish it to be. Fear will be used politically, we'll be forced to make enemies out of groups based on the actions of individuals.

There's far too little hatred for the messenger; the message being merely words and the messenger being the harbringer.

This event is fascinating, morbidly. The loss of so many legs at a marathon; what a perverse sick joke.

I can only hope for the best for all involved... including ourselves and our conversations.

Strutz Strutz:
Considering the size of the crowd of spectators at an event such as this it is amazing that the number of fatalities is not higher than it is so far, though 3 is bad enough.


I wasn't so amazed. By all appearances the device was a home built anti-personnel munition. Effective anti-personnel munitions maim rather than kill, either because you want the enemy to drain time and resources tending to the wounded (more a battlefield scenerio) or because you want to draw in first responders to tend to the casualties, who then get hit with a much larger and more lethal secondary device.

Those who rushed in for the injured were very, very brave.

Damn right; first responders never get proper appreciation, ever. People would like to think they did during 9/11, but when many of them suffered from lung issues and got not helping hand for their work helping during that crisis, I felt injustice was done.

Best wishes to those who definitely did not go to work thinking this would happen.

Very sad stuff. I hope I'm wrong in who I think did this.

I'm hoping whoever it is he doesn't join the parade of guys with Canadian passports involved in recent attacks.

It's like "please, please, don't be another Canadian".

May I ask who?

I can't think of any suspects. Ultimately this isn't meant to propel a message so much as scare people.

It definitely has to be someone who hates people. American people. I doubt it has domestic reasoning like hating taxes or hating corporations.

It has the whiff of an old foe. I'll leave it that for now.

I would expect a proper major terrorist organization would have claimed it by now, they love to do that.

I'll say it. Ball bearing explosives in trash cans were an IRA favourite.

There'll be lots of people in Britain looking with glee at a city which funded the IRA suffering from an IRA-like attack.

Now Bostonians know what the people of Britain had to put up with for many years - rather than an isolated attack like Boston - by a terror organisation which they funded.

Another irony is that Boston police are probably going to turn to British police - who probably have more experiencing than any other police force in the world in dealing with terrorist attacks like the one which has hit Boston - for help.

I'm merely telling the truth. You're one naive individual if you don't think there are many people in Britain looking with glee at a city which funded the IRA suffering from its own IRA-like attack.

The fact that Boston has suffered a terrorist attack caused by bombs placed in litter bins, just like the IRA used to do (such as in 1993 in Warrington when two children were killed and many injured), must be one of the great ironies of the century.

I wouldn't put it past the brits. They've show how barbaric they can be this past week. But, your IRA funding BS get's the eyeroll.

Come off it. We aren't Irish.

And you think it's a myth that Americans, mainly those Irish Americans in places like Boston and New York (people in Britain also noticed the irony after 9/11 that New York, another city which funded the IRA, suffered its own terrorist attack) funded the IRA?

I'm assuming you've never heard of NORAID then? It wasn't coincidence that American funding of the IRA decreased hugely after 9/11.
