Terrorism? Yes. Now we need to know if it is foreign or is it our own home grown idiots?

Lord help us.

IF this was a terrorist attack and not some lone whackjob, what is the message sent?

New York is the financial centre of US.

Boston is the hotbed of patriotism and youthful intellectualism of US.

But if it had been a terrorist act, a claim by them would have been made by now, followed even by a youthtube video. It's still quiet, so it may be some lone whackjob with an axe to grind, a misanthrope with knowledge on how to build IEDs.

Had anyone in boston knows or heard of a misanthrope making such threats recently?

It was down 10% this morning now up 1%. That's an 11% swing, and it was already acknowledged that Gold tanking over the past 2 days was of great concern. We are talking over a $150.00 per share here. That adds up....

Exactly. Like I said I hope this leads into a investigation on what homeland security is doing exactly?

It's really too early to be placing blame, but as we're on the discussion of what is "likely" I'll say what I thought when I saw the news.

There is an extremist element in the right wing. I know people don't want to hear it, but put your party political knee-jerk defences aside for a moment and see that this doesn't mean "all Republicans". You cannot deny that there ARE Republican extremists out there, just as there are extremists of all kinds.

You have a very unhappy extreme right. They're seeing gun control being discussed, and they're seeing gay marriage being put on the agenda with public support.

This was in Boston, which is symbolic itself. I've just heard a local reporter stating that it's "Patriots Day" too in the state.

In addition, the news I'm hearing is that there were three explosions, two at the same time, and one on a suspicious package that was a controlled blast. This tells me that these were not suicide bombs, and they were timed. That means the perpetrator (or perpetrators) are still out there. That also tells me that this is not a Muslim extremist attack, as a large part of that is the idea of martyrdom.

Everything is telling me that this is a right wing extremist group or individual.

So on my local news, this guy just said it was like you'd you in the military, "something you'd see in Baghdad" and as he started explaining that they were trained for this type of situation it was cut off. He started at "2 years ago" and it cut.

Interesting.. the NY Post is reporting the police have a suspect held, who is at the hospital with shrapnel wounds. They are the only media outlet reporting this.

After watching the video this looks like a gas leak, The third explosion was a parcel found' I believe there will be many parcel left after people dropped them in the confusion.

There are over 3000 leaks in Boston gas system and there was 2 explosions just 2 months ago.

www.foxnews.com...

BBC news is talking this up as a terrrorist attack without knowing the fact and now talking about the dangers in the London Marathon.

Looks like they are taking this serious, and considering it terrorism.
Tightening security in other cities and the White House.

www.cnn.com...



Out of an abundance of caution, the Lenox Hotel was evacuated, the Boston Globe reported, as authorities looked into possible security concerns.

"We are currently in contact with federal, state and city officials," Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick wrote on Twitter.

Other cities, including New York and Washington, tightened security as a result. Following standard protocol, the White House cleared out an area in front of the West Wing.

"If you see something, say something," Mark Boughton, mayor of Canbury, Connecticut, wrote on Twitter. "All cities will be on a heightened state of alertness per Homeland Security protocols."

No. Those up/down percentages are based on a 24-hour time period. It was down about 10% in the prior 24-hour period, and has just recovered 1% in the current period.

Still WAY DOWN from where it was 30 hours ago.

Bingo!!!!!!!!!!!!! making sure you don't be carrying any suspicious artifacts into the marathon. I tell you it doesn't matter what we live in the illusion of safety in this nation, we are not more safe in America than in any other country in the world.

But lets keep sipping the koolaid and live in la-la land.

If this is domestic terrorism or tagged as such we will see how the trigger law happy (whores) I mean politicians ( as some people sensitivities seems to be sore with that word) will be passing all kind of laws.



Sadly with all the things we learn everyday of what our own for the people government is capable off we can not dismiss the conspiracies in government involvement specially with what is going on in congress right now.

People need to stop asking if this was a terror attack. YES it was a terror attack. Planted bombs are, by definition, terror related.

The question should be, was it a domestic attack, foreign, or false flag.

There is an expression along the lines that "generals are always ready to fight the last war".

How it applies here is that DHS etc are all hyper-vigilant about stopping a repeat of the 9/11 attacks, yet the terrorists have moved on to unprotected targets.

The bull# here is that regardless of who did this, kiss more of your freedoms goodbye.
