I really hate to say this but I was kinda hoping it would be a homegrown white guy behind this. Another Timothy Mcveigh, if you will. At least that way we could avoid what's going to inevitably happen.

I cant even imagine the feeling if your family member was being treated in the same room.

This person should be last on the surgery waiting list..

Was there an explosion at JFK library too??

"Police also confirmed that there was a third explosion, at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum. It was not immediately clear how much damage was done or whether it was related to the bombings at the marathon finish line.

The library bombing occurred about 4:30 p.m. and more than a mile from the marathon."

I heard reports from the library that said it was just a fire

Gonna be a lot more controlled explosions as items left behind by runners will be treated as potential explosive devices

Things will definitely change as details/initial reports are clarified.

Anyone with half a brain will wait awhile after everything has happened to start drawing conclusions. Taking blind guesses as to who is responsible is ignorant.

I would have hoped this never happened in the first place.

Bound to happen. Lots of hate against the USA in the countries they interfere with.


Question: Do you think there will still be as much sympathy from non-Americans (with all the atrocities the US Government has done recently) like in 9/11?


It's like a cyclical battle.

- US interferes with other countries - Brews hate in those countries
- US gets attacked by the radicals.
- US interferes with other countries to avenge what was done and for other reasons as well - Brews hate in those countries
- US gets attacked by the radicals.

Not to downplay this AT ALL, but I'd say given the concentration of people in that area, If that death toll stays at 12, (*or less if this is in fact bullshit as per NY post) it will be very lucky. Obviously I understand lucky would be if this didn't happen, but its all relative. This had potential to be MUCH worse. I can't wrap my head around the malice that it takes to commit an act of violence against a random person, nevermind hundreds of random people.
