So an air strike that kills civilians is different from the bombing of civilians via a home made bomb (afaik)?

The only difference is the method of delivery. The outcome is the same.

Also, nice straw man. A bus accident isn't the same as an airstrike.

u cant say that, you can apply it to any "clan" of people that fight/defend.

if a gangster's family is killed, he should live in his gangster HQ instead of home right?
same as cops, if a cops family is killed, well he's involved in "this shit" so he should stay away from pp he cares about.

"terrorists" are just a group of ppl that have the same goal. a gang, cops, whatever. they're just another "team" out there.

they are terrorists to you. but to themselves, they are just another group of ppl with common interests.


with that mentality, then no one is innocent.
if a gangsters family is slaughtered cuz of a gang war, it's normal.

if a terrorists family is blown up in a war, it's normal.

if a cop's family is killed cuz he's an undercover rat, it's normal.

if ppl are killed because they are apart of a system that someone is trying to destroy, it's normal.

guilty by association right? everyone is on a team whether they like it or not.


in the eyes of the people wielding the weapons, there is only one team, themselves.

yeah, that's cuz unlike my other topic posts, there's nothing to discuss here.

either some "terrorist" group did it, self explanatory.

or someone or a group of ppl were pushed to their limits and decided to do something extreme... self explanatory as well.

woopdidoo. what do you expect. the smarter the people, the more efficient their methods of killing will be. I'm surprised there aren't more bombings and less shootings. Anyone with half a brain would use a bomb vs a gun.

either way, there's nothing to talk about. either u got "enemies" or you've got some disgruntled people that went postal in a shitty country.

In the coming years left of your life, expect more bombings and shootings. It's not a surprise or anything hard to predict. There really isn't much to discuss. It's pretty fucking straight forward lol.

someone wants destruction, people are smart, they will make it happen, it happened, there's nothing you can do about it. it will happen again. welcome to earth, enjoy your stay, have a good life.

Really? The only difference is the method of delivery?

So there were targets at the Boston Marathon who were personally responsible for (or were planning) some form of attack and they were taken out by the bombs and the rest of the people were "collateral damage"?

Or perhaps the US does an airstrike on a random group of people just for the hell of it? They have no intelligence or information that the people they're looking for are anywhere near the area, but decide to go ahead and bomb it anyway?

yes.. as we've seen from leaked videos and reports
not to mention those who've been court marshaled over their actions which were so obscene that even the military was like "whoa whoa whoa"

and if we were going to be anal im sure you could argue there were members of the military in the marathon that seems to be the same reasoning when the us bombs an area "oh there were reports that insurgents were nearby"

Fixed.

To generalize people with one sweeping comment is no better than those you criticize.

Boston may be infamous for its racism, but I bet most of the people there weren't local.

And no, not justified. Reasoned. There's a difference

It's fucking stupid that some people compare what happened to Boston to kids starving to death and people dying in war. How the fuck is a stray bomb in a war zone the same as some nut case(s) who planned and executed blowing people up with out warning?

And why are people making a huge deal about caring about this incident when ppl die all over the world? No life is worth more or less than a Canadian or American, but the fact that this shit is happening so close to home makes me care a lot more than shit happening in a f*cked up country. And it's not ignorant to expect this shit not to happen here just because it's Canada/USA, because we do live in a better place than most of the world and this shit shouldn't happen.

Even then, it's still a planned and usually remote/trigger detonated. It's not like it's being tossed out of an airplane at random like those Russians did in Afghanistan with the butterfly mine

well how else do I explain collateral damage? Or are you going to tell me the US is there to kill everyone who gets in their way because they are purely evil?

edit: What I meant was collateral damage caused by bombs and artillery. Because yeah the US have killed a lot of innocents but some people act like that's purely why they are there is to bomb weddings and kill children. Yes it sucks but you can't expect a war to be perfect, i'm sorry if i'm talking out of my ass when i've never lived in a war zone but yeah w.e.
