False flags have always had carefully selected targets that are meant to cause an exact response. This is not the case here. To me, the details of what happened just don't fit that kind of scenario at all.

my thoughts for the victims / families.

look at the top right window, looks like 2 impacts from shrapnel. Possibly that can be a clue to what was in the bomb.

I was just as [snip]ed off when I heard about the U.K subway attacks.

So thanks.

How do you know that?

Your guilty of what you accuse conspiracy researchers of.


Paranoia?

I am sorry for stating my opinion.

I will ask permission next time.

This looks like a false flag.


What about it looks like a false flag? Why is every single incident a false flag? Do folks realize there really -are- terrorists, and nutjobs, and supremacists, and so on, who will do horrible things to further their agenda? Every single time there is a bombing or a shooting or a tragedy, it's always chalked up to "false flag." Everything isn't a false flag you know.

"During the ATF's 10-week program, a dog is exposed to an explosive up to 120 times a day, in amounts ranging from 1,000 pounds to 1 gram. In early phases of training, the dog is told to sit each time he finds the odor—that becomes the signal he uses to alert his handler when a bomb is present. The dog is fed only when in the presence of the explosive. Using a food reward instead of praise and play prevents an exclusive bond between dog and handler, which might prevent the dog from working well with others.

One upper-level training scenario uses a rotating wheel with slots for four containers. Some of the containers are empty; others hold explosives, a distracting object such as food, or an explosive combined with a distracting odor. By using the training wheel, the dog learns to ignore food in favor of explosives. Some agencies avoid mixing food with work and infuse dog toys with explosive odors instead. The dogs learn to root out hidden explosives by simply playing fetch.

The dog must learn to recognize thousands of active ingredients that might be used in an explosive. Trainers expose the canine to signature compounds that are found in many different types of explosives. In this way, a dog can be trained to detect all manner of bombs by memorizing a dozen or so smells. Some bomb components are more odoriferous than others. C-4 has an incredibly strong scent; it's followed in decreasing order of smelliness by dynamite, TOVEX, detonating cord, and TNT."

I emphasize "THOUSANDS OF ACTIVE INGREDIENTS". How could this be a Black Powdered bomb?? Or whatever is being speculated without the dogs finding it.

So, what details make you think this is not a false flag?? Just wondering.

I feel like it could be a false flag. The bombs were, as bombs go, seemingly weak. It would not have been hard for someone to have made bombs with far more devastating effects. It was like whoever was behind it didn't want to kill / injure TOO many people, but just enough for it to be taken very seriously.

I dunno... Something seems fishy about the whole thing..

some talk of a setup that went too far, the FBI has increasingly pushed the limits of their sting operations. they do it in plain sight, but when something goes wrong they'd never admit to it. i don't necessarily believe this to be the case, but the possibility is frustrating.

for example

Here is the football player who had the VIP section next to the bomb going off.

Add some pepper and see how well he can smell while sneezing.

Well done, and you've made the connection. America has made crazy and outrageous
claims in order to get their herd to back the wars. I still have a problem with Al-Q being
the reason we eventually and soon went into Iraq. Weapons of mass distraction again....

I think the point is that nobody knows what it is right now, so making accusations and pointing fingers prematurely is just jumping to conclusions that cant really be backed up.

Personally, my first thought was low-budget peeps that did it. If they had more to work with, they'd have been able to do a lot more damage. Thats really not all that helpful in narrowing things down, though

"One notable quality of detection dogs is that they are able to discern individual scents even when the scents are combined or masked by other odors. In one case at an Australian prison, a detection dog foiled an attempt to smuggle drugs that had been hidden in a woman's bra and smeared with coffee, pepper and Vicks Vapo-rub."

Nice try.

Naw. The spin they are putting on it is the spin that Alex Jones and all of his following always puts on everything. No matter what the tragedy is its a "false flag attack" perpetrated by the government in order to take away our rights and put us in concentration camps.

What happened today was not a false flag attack. This was a terrorist attack pure and simple, whether solo, domestic or foreign.



And you know this because...?


Simple logic...

If certain people holler "false flag" every time something happens then they are obviously nutjobs.

Frankly, conducting a false flag operation is very risky for those behind the scenes. Should something go wrong, exposing them, the sh_t would REALLY hit the fan.

If "they" were going to conduct a false flag operation it would involve a LOT more casualties/damage than what we have seen today.

To call this a false flag insults my intelligence. Please do not do that.

You wont like me if I get mad (Bruce).

The news I listened to, just the past half hour, confirmed some sort of BBs or something. Then they claimed they still didn't know how the bombs were detonated, which seems highly unlikely this far past the event.

Black powder is used in bullets and dogs are capable of detecting trace amounts. If the dogs were to alert on black powder it would be alerting constantly.
