I really think the timing of the detonations were planned and not accidental, late or mis-timed.

In a marathon, you have a group that comes in between two and three hours with the rest of the average joes who best represent the general public coming in usually around the four plus hour mark.

And those are the folks who have the most people along the sidelines cheering for their wives, husbands, kids, parents, friends or whomever it may be.

To me, the intended targets were not those who were there supporting the handful of national and international participants who finished first, rather the mainstreet US folks who were there rooting for their own.

I could be wrong, but that's my take on it.

"University of Mobile’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 on the loud speaker that it was just a drill and there was nothing to worry about,” Coach Ali Stevenson told Local 15. “It seemed like there was some sort of threat, but they kept telling us it was just a drill.” Stevenson had just finished the marathon. His wife had been sitting in one of the seating sections where an explosion went off, but thankfully she left her seat and was walking to meet up with him." - Local5

Are you 6 years old or have you simply not figured out rational thought and common decency when conversing with others?

It is possible that i misread your post, in which case an apology is in order......

Islam is not a race. Jihad is not a race.

All evidence clearly indicates an act of violent Jihad committed by a muslim. It is not unexpected or surprising to those of us who are familiar with the tactics and goals of Islamic Jihad.

Wherever muslims interface with non-muslims, there is always violent Jihad. As the number of muslims on American soil increases, so will the acts of violent Jihad. This is supported by historical and contemporary events from around the planet and across oceans of time.

You can cry and moan and call it "racism" but it is not. It is Jihad.

If you think one guy carried 4 IED's weighed down with a crap ton of ball bearings (big enough to shred 140 people) into the area all by himself and set them up with no one noticing...well. I don't buy it.


Where is the evidence that there were 4?!

See, this is exactly what I'm talking about. You don't even know how many devices there were, and yet you are creating your own story to support what you think, asserting that there WERE 4, and that this means there MUST have been more than one man involved.

You know, I've been to the gym a few times, I have a friend entering a strong man contest in a couple of years. I can tell you for a FACT that one man could indeed carry four "presumably heavy" devices to wherever he wanted to put them. Or do you now claim to know that the people involved are weak and skinny to support your theory?

Why is it so implausible for a grown man to carry 4 of these devices? Do you know when they were put in place? Do you know what they were made of? Do you know how heavy each of them were?

I don't care what experience you have, you are creating a story to suit your own idea of what happened. You are accepting all the little bits of rumour that suit your theory and ignoring common sense. That is not the way to build a proper conspiracy theory, and this is exactly the reason why people laugh at conspiracy theorists and call them crazy.

I am absolutely sure it is a false flag. Too many interesting facts has been uploaded yesterday and today. Strange guys on roofs, drills in the same area, Boston, Tax Day... It is all made for public to believe honest right-wing patriots are to blame. Besides, all these gun control court decisions? Like this one

rapsinews.com...

or those crazy talks on TV? I am with Alex Jones here, government wants to blame American Patriots because Obama's people hate us and want to destroy us in true socialist fashion.

You're obviously quite ignorant.

Firstly Jihad has very little to do with violence or any kind of aggressive action - in fact it means "To Struggle"... A person dying from cancer is performing Jihad, do you understand?

Stop trying to be a shill:


Wherever muslims interface with non-muslims, there is always violent Jihad


Biggest load of bolox I have read in a long time and shows how small minded you are. There are however twisted individuals who have taken their extreme views, twisted something pure and made it into their own ideology that they then instill on other victims.

On the contrary, we don't really know what happened in Boston but we do know one thing, it was a tragedy and I am as shocked as anyone else. As someone mentioned a few posts up (very clearly), the evidence points to something homegrown and I am willing to bet the truth will be very hard to swallow just like Timothy McVeigh was (a bitter pill).

Pray for these people those that do, they need our sympathies.

You are not even worthy of a reply .

You can sugar coat it all you like . Your dreadful post was unfounded and smacked of pure bigotry .

Come back when you have something remotely intelligent to contribute.

How do you secure 26 miles of stretch? Drones. Roll that beautiful drone footage...


Condolences to all persons suffering losses and injuries as a result of this. Terribly sad.

Conjecture based on lack of information or evidence is futile. Arguing about conjecture at this moment in time is just silly and using the situation for racist or political alignment because there is no evidence yet is just plain offensive.

There are members on this thread that seem to have an agenda based on making us think the way they want...I think you will find we are too mature for that, have seen it all before and find it quite amusing...well I do.

Respects to you all.

I was listening to a popular morning talk show on a country channel and was really appalled and how bloodthirsty people are, how quick they are to assume it was middle easterners, and how stupid the majority of Americans are.

Looking at just what we know, what has been released it bears a resemblance to amateurs. If I had to guess it would be a couple of homegrown nutjobs either looking for their 5 minutes of fame, or trying to make some statement. Typically the big terrorist cells take credit for stuff like this. Plus they only got 3 to detonate(counting the jkf library) and left I think 3 others undetonated. Jihadist would probably have made sure they all went, or would have been more of the suicide type that is seen overseas.

Regardless of the who,how and why, what it has accomplished is over 100 wounded, some with amputations, and some dead. It was an attack of terror, hence a terrorist attack. It has people divided over go and attack somebody, make them pay, rawr mentality, and people complaining that surveillance and intel gathering isn't enough and we should give up some more liberties to feel safer.

Of course, this could start to be more of the "norm" in this day and age. I personally refuse to live in fear, and cower behind the government for protection. If I die today, so be it, I lived a good life and lived it free.

We don't know yet. I live in Boston and I don't care where this person or people were from... America or otherwise. Whoever they were they do not represent their culture or people or religion or ideology, they represent insanity, hatred and fear. They sound like a person or people who cannot cope or tolerate differences and have adopted an extremist mentality... you know kinda like the 'round em up and get em out' mentality. We are hurting here today and luckily we maintain our rationale here in Boston, no knee jerk reactionary BS.

We want the person/s responsible that's the end of it. Thank God not everyone thinks like you. I'm not Muslim but I can promise you that Boston would not sit idly by through a repeat of what we did to Japanese nationals during WWII. How dare you even suggest the rounding up of fellow Americans, you should be the one to gtfo.

While I appreciate the 1990s style explanations you provide, few people buy the lie that Jihad is some sort of internal struggle. All one need do is read some military history and Jihad is revealed for what it is.

Jihad is the mechanical process used to spread Islamic culture and Sharia law.

The people at the Boston Marathon were killed by a muslim engaged in violent Jihad in an effort to spread Islamic culture and Sharia law in the way of his warlord prophet, Mohammed, and in celebration of the deity he worships, Allah.

Until we know what coverup story the media and the government are going with we won't be able to dissect this "bombing". I am really disappointed with the amount of uneducated conspiracy theories and scenarios people are coming up with in this thread. I was hoping for find some solid information, not a million fantasists combing over every picture and video, painting the most obvious things as much more sinister. A lot of people seem to think this is just a game now, "Spot the abnormalities every time there is a false flag". Really, a white/cream converse shoe suddenly becomes a pvc pipe bomb? Falling debri after the blast is now a man on the roof dropping "mysterious black packages"? People need to put a lid on their imaginations for this one. It's not a tv show.
