I'm going to go out on a limb here and suggest that no one on this thread has any idea what was in the thoughts of either of these guys when they did
what they did Monday. I'm also going to go even further and suggest that no one that the younger guy hung out with in high school has any idea
As far as the Secret Service or FBI or CIA or Illuminati Overlords having any reason for blowing off two crude bombs at the finish line of the Boston
Marathon....where's the after-event marketing push? Immediately after the 9/11 attacks, we got blitzed with the new "War on Terror", which morphed
quickly to include The Patriot Act, The Dept of Homeland Security, Operation Iraqi Freedom, 16 new private sector, government funded intelligence
agencies, the TSA, and trillions of Treasury dollars down a rat hole. The reason for the 9/11 attacks was really obvious and really aggressively
imposed on all of us.
So, what's the big reason for this attack?
My only immediate thought - when the bombings happened - was that the same *ssholes who have the pounds of Anthrax still hanging over our heads
decided to "punish" the Obama Admin for allowing the Bush Tax Cuts to expire for the top tier on January 1st, with a small show of terror on Tax Day -
in Boston, (Boston Tea Party) for extra emphasis. But then, I always follow the money when something significant happens, and have always assumed that
there's been a lot more happening behind the public displays between the senders and the receivers since the 9/11 attacks and all the insanity that's
become our "new normal" ever since.
Hell, even the WikiLeaks thing died off quickly once it became clear that the data dump targeting the banksters (spring of 2011) wasn't going to
happen - suggesting that WikiLeaks was the US government's attempt at fighting back against the International "private sector" in the high stakes war
that's been raging since those planes hit their targets on 9/11.
The bottom line in any professional world-class terror attack is the after-event marketing impact, and in this case - so far, at least - there isn't
any after-event marketing impact that's obvious or even apparent. In the Middle East areas, the marketing impact is pretty clear - "stay here and your
stay here will be violent and dangerous". That's easy to understand and there's no need for a press release. Attacks in this country have to be
followed up with a succinct and clearly defined marketing message - like when the defense industry hit us on 9/11, with the message that we need to
start spending big again on national defense. The interests and concerns within this society are much too diverse and ill-defined for a terror attack
to be worthwhile without the obvious marketing campaign to make that attack mean something - message-wise - for the attacked.
And this is why there aren't many such terror attacks in this country. 9/11 was unique in the annals of recent history terror attacks, in that the
after-event marketing was so clear and disciplined when compared to all other terror attacks. It was also the most successful terror attack, netting
trillions for the attacker (so far). The Middle East attacks are obvious, as are the SE Asia attacks and the Sub-Asia attacks. "Get out of our local
region or watch innocent people die as a result of your refusal to leave" - with the hope that the majority of locals will drive you out to get the
attacks to stop. The Boston Marathon bombings don't make any sense in that there's no after-event marketing effort, and certainly no after-event
marketing effort being launched by the US government.
Then again, this has been one hell of a busy news week, and most folks never noticed the gun control vote in the Senate that killed off even basic
background checks - even with the Newtown Families making the rounds all week - which, if I were a tinfoil hat wearing conspiracy theorist, I'd be
looking at really suspiciously. All this Boston Marathon stuff knocked all that NRA-Newtown-Senate-gun control bill news news and commentary right off
the front pages across the entire country.
Hell, maybe we should be looking hard at the NRA for luring in the older brother here? Those GOP lawmakers needed some cover, especially given the
outrage over Newtown and the fact that the background check bill polled positive at over 90%.
