I'm not talking about gun control. I'm talking about bomb control. Bombs just killed and injured people, and I would like for there to be an outcry for much stricter bomb regulations. Meaning, regulations on -EVERY- possible material that could be used to make bombs. Want to buy fertilizer? Background check. Want to buy a metal pipe? Background check. Want to buy wiring? Background check.. so on and so forth.

Because I mean... bombs dude.....if these materials are strictly regulated, it will be very difficult for people to get them and make bombs..


Ah. I thought you were being sarcastic. My apologies. While, yeah, it would be great if fewer people were able to make bombs but that's simply unrealistic.

Imagine the work they have now, how many key words will be dropped over communications today?

Right now in Australia they have closed down a street and have sent in a bomb squad to check out a suspicious bag.

Not sure if this one has been posted but some security experts are saying domestic group based on the fact that they believe that what went off were high powered pipe bombs. I think that could be why the JFK library one may not have gone off or, if remote triggered, somebody, thankfully, lost their nerve. If this was Al Qaeda, then they would've all gone off. The day, the locations, and the fact that not all of them went off kind of points to homegrown. Patriots Day, JFK library--hard to dismiss.

Not necessarily. Remember the underwear bomber? It's also possible this was some lone person, or small group, acting out as the bigger groups have asked people to do. A properly trained al Qaeda operative might not fail, but not all that work towards their goals are such individuals.

I did hear, from a relative in TX, that the local NBC affiliate just reported (within last 20 min or so) that there was no bomb at the library, so the point might very well be moot.

I think too many people are looking at the calendar and seeing what they want to see. It's Taxes Day, Patriot's Day, anniversary of this, anniversary of that.

Honestly, I don't think the history of April 15th has anything to do with this. I think the Boston Marathon was chosen because it would cause a lot of media attention.


Israeli Independence Day as well:

New York Times, 15 May 1948

Tel Aviv, Palestine, Saturday, May 15 -- The Jewish state, the world's newest sovereignty, to be known as the State of Israel, came into being in Palestine at midnight upon termination of the British mandate...

don't have any information on any quarantine but the suits are likely just part of the procedure when dealing with explosions of this nature.

I see what you are saying and the light appears to be brightest where you are focusing but I see the first bit of light appearing closer to the guy he is pointing at in the video.

All I see is a giant blue M&M looking guilty.

This is totally off-topic...while it might be considered by some as entirely on topic...but... Someone, within the last two or three days posted a concern regarding the "site traffic" having declined since December/January... Is it possible that ATS could have been behind this act of terror?...to boost site traffic...?

JK - but - What timing!

Conversely - for anyone thinking the "suspicious character" in one YouTube video, is "the culprit"...well - again, we will have no-one to hang from the highest/nearest tree. No-one to question. Just a lot of empty blame.
If that explosion erupted from his backpack (or strapped/taped around his torso)...not very likely he (if, indeed, that is a "he") survived.

And I am still wondering about the blue bag and the VIP pole or cigarette ash tray?

Seen here sitting on table.


Seen here in the blast area?

My thoughts exactly. I don't think this is a suicide bombing. Two explosions, possibly triggered by a cell phone... It wouldn't add up.

Maybe it's just some of the responders' gear.

Your first image might be the second blast site. Haven't seen that in any other pics of the first site.

I found this article pretty interesting, pardon if it's been posted before.

UM Coach: Bomb Sniffing Dogs, Spotters on Roofs Before Explosions

UM’s Cross Country Coach, who was near the finish line of the Boston Marathon when a series of explosions went off, said he thought it was odd there were bomb sniffing dogs at the start and finish lines.

"They kept making announcements to the participants do not worry, it's just a training exercise," Coach Ali Stevenson told Local 15. Stevenson said he saw law enforcement spotters on the roofs at the start of the race.


The "guy on the roof" picture we saw earlier could be one of these spotters.

I'm thinking the hazmat suits are part of their protocol and isn't necessarily indicative of something they've found.
