They do kill anyone that gets in their way of the mission, it's normal dude. it's war.

even simple things like, if you're operating a vehicle, and your orders are to not stop under any circumstances, and people, kids, dogs whatever, run out into the streets in the way of the truck...

guess what dude, you run them over.

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.
connect the dots
pastures are green in some places of the world due to the pastures being black in others
it would be difficult to enjoy your life style as of now if it were not for some poor bastard making some sacrifices in the other side of the world. be it at a child labour factory, child soldier, people picking agricultural items for a fraction of what they would be getting paid in the first world

now if this was not an inside job (yes its plausible, look at Gulf of Tonkin. but thats another debate) then you can easily see why someone at the other end of the world would have a reason to accomplish something like this.

a fucked up country? yes it is fucked up. and be fortunate you are not living there.
most people wouldnt blink when it happens across a sea. but bring it closer to home, and it becomes more of a reality
it just becomes that much easier to associate with. the first world is fucked as well, just not displayed in the same fashion as other countries.

war is universal. this generation has had it good because there have been no wars on home turf and a relatively healthy economy. wake up call. there are others around the world that deal with this shit every day, or some who immigrated here escaping some of that. thats one reason this generation is at the apex of consumerism. everyone wants so much bullshit that has been ingrained in our heads

I agree, sorry I wasn't trying to argue with anyone and debate about war and stuff. I was just trying to make the point that people should stop seeing people like me, who feel empathy towards the victims of Boston, as people who are ignorant to what happens on the other side of the World.

The guy known as "the hero in the cowboy hat" yesterday and mentioned/praised many times

"In 2004, when his son Alexander was killed in Iraq, Arredondo locked himself in a van with five gallons of gasoline and a propane torch. He set the van on fire. But his suicide attempt failed. He didn't die.

After that he became a peace activist, touring the country with his son's picture and his combat boots, rallying for the protection of American troops.

Then, in 2011, Arredondo's other son, Brian, 24, committed suicide after suffering years of depression and drug addiction stemming from his brother's death.

Arredondo, no stranger to death, had to keep pushing on. There was a reason he was still alive. He needed to keep both of his sons' spirits alive. He legally changed his name to Alexander Brian Arredondo to honor his boys. And he continued protesting violence and war."

So it's okay because it's different.. because when we kill kids, we were targeting the bad guys.. who were hiding in houses filled with civilians.

I really like the "Or perhaps the US does an airstrike on a random group of people just for the hell of it"

Hurp, fucking derp.. What is wikileaks?

Have you seen the shit it fucking does?

"durr but they're the exception, not the rule"
Yeah, well so are these bombings then, they are after all incredibly rare.

Sorry, I keep forgetting we're the "Good guys". It's not like we detain people without trail at some imaginary place called guantanamo lel..
Or use drones on our own civilians.. heh
We have freedumb!

Why were you wondering this? And why do you say "supposedly"? Her family wanted her to remain anonymous

She was identified before she died though, so you can still find info about her if you really want:

Boston University Student In Coma Following Boston Explosions

Edit: Apparently this girl is one of the 2 friends who were with the actual victim. The third escaped injury, lucky girl.

^^ i was wondering why because CNN was showing the little kid and the other lady constantly but not the 3rd victim
and i said supposedly for a number of reasons one being that the newscaster mentioned it in an uncertain way so i wasn't sure if it was an actual request or if the newscaster just came up with a reason on the fly (as it seemed)

^Who the hell cares Skinnypup, its natural for people to want to know who she is. Anyways, they are reporting her as Lu Lingzi, grad student in statistics.

So when the media reports false flag, it can't possibly be true

You know what's REALLY weird? That it took 12 pages for Chuckles to get in on this thread. This must be a conspiracy by the mods.

Please explain this to me. If someone says "Muslims are terrorists" people will respond with "you can't paint all Muslims bad because of a few extremists".

Yet when a few "extremists" within the US military do something wrong (and get court-martialed for it) then suddenly we can label the entire US as evil?

All I see is a lot of hypocrisy in this thread in regards to "labeling" a group based on what some of their members do.
