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


That's hilarious. That means you think what.. that there is an abundance of false flags, and just a very tiny amount of legitimate events? I guess for some who see shadows around every corner, everything must seem like a false flag by our evil government.

Kind of like the guy who suggested it was the drop of gold or the stock market that triggered a false flag. Apparently WHILE the stock market was dropping 200 points, the government felt that was a good enough reason to kill U.S. citizens to distract us, and was able to implement this plan during the marathon at a moment notice.

Common sense dictates it was not a false flag event. False flag for WHAT? People act as if our own government now bombs us or shoots up schools whenever a slight blip in the running of our country hits our radar. Unless you are suggesting this is a new effort to shore up bomb control measures.

Now this is a more likely theory. A sting gone bad. Considering the low casualty rate, bomb sniffing dogs not finding three bombs within 3 or 4 blocks of each other, and FBI, ATF, and the Bomb Suits on the scene within minutes it seems plausible.

The other theories like Right Wing extremists, Left Wing extremists, etc. seem so absurd in a situation like this. Were talking Post 9/11 here. Why didnt this happen at the Superbowl?? The World Cup?? etc. Why not attack a more smaller event where the chances of being caught would be much less and you could inflict more fear??

Interesting event to say the least.

Maybe you are misunderstanding me. Anyone, lone ranger, country or organization that does something like this to harm so many people and cause this type of death and destruction is a terrorist. You can call them a psycho, or a sick person or whatever politically correct terminology you want, it will never change the fact that what they did was terrorism hence they are a terrorist.


In that sense, sure, but in this case, I think most define "terrorism" as violence done for some political motive. Some lone psycho doing it for kicks would not fit that definition. Either way, whoever is responsible is seriously sick.

I'm guessing some crazy nut job yank saw how to make bombs on the internet.
He was sick of life, sick of being unemployed, dumbed down on meds and maccas and wanted to be famous.
Wouldn't surprise me, you cant trust an American with a gun, why trust him with explosives?

all the right wing lunatics will jump on Obama
all the left wing psycho's will jump on the NRA
Your media will talk absolute nonsense and try to drum and hype this as much as possible.
Fox News will rant and rave what ever position the government wants to take
Americans will go on and on and on and on about how much of a tragedy this is and how unfair and disgusting this is..

all the while the US military does 10x worse in other lands to other people and you don't even care.



I couldn't tell who your post was aimed at, so I'll take a shot at a response....

I do care.

Why would right wing extremist kill other americans to legitimize gun confiscation?

That makes no sense at all.

There either has to be a way to block/mask the smell for the dogs, or there must be multiple bombers to get that much of a spread between them. It would be less settling to think that it was a coordinated attack, so I choose to believe the dogs were tricked or had the flu.

That was my point. You, Me, the Poster of that comment cant say what is or what isnt a false flag event. I was asking his opinion on what he "thought" was a "false flag" event to see where he/she was coming from. I have my own opinion on what a false flag event is and whether it "ALWAYS" has some specific physical target.

I think False Flag's have a target but there not always defined by the event itself. A false flag can be defined in many different ways at a ends to a means. Anyone can use any event to create a False Flag even if they didnt do it in the first place.

False flag or not?

We can't really prove it one way or the other. So, let's drop it, yeah? We don't have enough information.

You make little sense.

First you suggest huge events like the Super Bowl and the World Cup. Then you suggest smaller events. Make up your mind!

Speaking of the media "out-scooping each other, facts be damned", am I the only one who wanted to smack the reporter who asked the doctor to clarify what he meant by the injuries not being "other-worldly"...?

Context: he was asked if he had ever seen anything like this. He, being an educated man, deconstructed the rather odd question (on its own begging a specific reply: "no"), and said, as far as the injuries, they were not other-worldly, whereas the amount of people at one time was a first.

Did she really need to clarify the comment? The injuries are not unusual, they happen. I guess I'm being to hard on her, but I get a little ticked at how the media handle these 24 hour events.

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.


Please...have you ever picked up evidence after a bombing? I am sure the answer is no...

They are STILL collecting evidence.at the scene.

It's actually extremely difficult to get things past detection dogs. Flu? Highly doubtful. Who wants a sick detection dog on the job? It's all very suspicious to say the least.

Any idea exactly what year they started that? As a veteran, and married to a career soldier, we can 't figure any reason they would be there at all.


Many reasons: They were volunteering (the whole "complete solider" persona the military likes to present), they were there supporting their comrades running in the race. They were supplemented via the Mass. Gov. for the race to provide extra eyes/bodies/etc, (not policing, just eyes), they wanted to watch the race after getting into town off a military hop, etc, etc.

I performed many volunteer opportunities during our on-station time in uniform, it isn't odd. As the poster you replied to, they could be supplementing in an official fashion.

Here is from 2009:

HOPKINTON, Mass., April 21, 2009 – Almost 400 Massachusetts National Guardsmen were called up to support yesterday’s 113th running of the Boston Marathon.

Guardsmen from the 126th Combat Support Battalion were positioned at the starting line to assist the Hopkinton Police in keeping the race route clear for more than 26,000 runners.


As for this yesr

More than 400 Massachusetts National Guard troops were already on duty, assigned to help local police keep the marathon route clear for runners.

Exactly. Re Read my posts. I dont think it was an extremist from the Right nor the Left. They wouldnt be that smart to make our bomb sniffing dogs get the flu.

The man has 24 posts and makes a lot of sense. It really isn't worth the bother at this point. Lets wait and see what happens in the next few hours/days before we blame our government for bombing us.

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.


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.

Ignorance in motion here....

Black powder is NOT used in bullets. LET ME REPEAT....NOT USED IN BULLETS.

Black powder is used in old style weapons like...muskets. Flintlock type stuff, you know? Primitive weapon season...you know?

What is used in modern bullets is a totally different animal.
