Sometimes your lack of intelligence just amazes me.

Terrorism (terrorist attack) - noun
1. the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, especially for political purposes.

As defined by dictionary.com - Terrorism | Define Terrorism at Dictionary.com

Which aspect of the Boston Marathon bombing lacked the use of violence, threats and intimidation?

Even if it's just some random crazy nutjob, the way the event took place on April 15th, 2013. It's still an act of terrorism.

well to be fair there's no internationally accepted definition of terrorism because countries like america/uk/china don't want their actions defined as such nor is there a desire to mark rebellions as terrorism
http://www.un.org/News/Press/docs/2005/gal3276.doc.htm

and what darth had meant, i think, is a terrorist organization vs a single nutjob

Well, he needs to learn to write clearer with more substance, cause constantly making empty statements without backing will leave him vulnerable to criticism. It's not his first and definitely won't be his last.

Chuckles, I can say the same thing about your state-run, anti-Semitic (or "ZioAmerican", either way you spin it it's still the same thing), anti-Western news source. Dismissal can go both ways.

i didnt backtrace enough in this thread to see in what kind of context the word terrorism was used but,

the word terrorism has been given a particular notion from America. it invokes thoughts of a foreign attacker etc: right now the image drawn in most people's minds is a rag on head wearing dark skinned person from the Middle East

i think thats what DarthCHilli was alluding too

just another witch hunt

Section of King Street closed for police investigation | CTV Toronto News

It's all safe now. I am staying at a hotel half a block away... and used that same station exit a few hour ago.

Good that Toronto police is being more alert. I don't mind the inconvenience of road closures.

That's a Craft International hat. Unlikely they're SEALS, probably plain clothed police.

Hard to proclaim him as the guy who planted the bomb just cuz of him not having his backpack on in the picture on the right. Comparing the two pictures, the left pic, he has more open space so he can have his bag on and won't bump into anybody. But in the right pic, he is standing in the crowd, there is a person right behind him and his arms are infront of him[looks like he is holding his bag infront by his feet].

I was hearing they had interest of two people caught in various pictures one of whom was wearing a white hat, one with a back pack and one with a duffel bag. But they are refusing to release photos of who the actual people are at the moment.

We should never assume...like the picture of the two Muslim looking guys was all that Fox News talked about yesterday claiming the picture was proof it was Islamic terrorist but from the pictures the FBI released it looks like it's two white guys and probably has nothing to do with Muslims.
