This is a prime terrorist target. Lots of people, several different avenues to explore. Creat confusion over who might be responsible because everybody has their favorite subject. Will be at least seventy two hours before anything solid is known even if then.

Whomever it was... The US should take the gloves off and get some payback.. I am not talking about the surgical strike type but the carpet bombing type.

Prayers for everyone effected.....

So if the suspect turns out to be from Boston, should we carpet bomb Boston?

If nobody credible takes credit, I'm thinking home grown. CO and TX have seen murders of prosecutors recently, a mail bomb was aimed to Joe Arpiao (sp?), sheriff of Maricopa County in AZ.

Nobody has taken credit for any of these, yet.

An attack of this nature by domestic terrorists would likely not engender much sympathy for their cause, which is why (donning tinfoil hat now) I'm inclined to believe that this was more likely a false flag event, meant to look like it was done by home grown right-wingers and turn public opinion against them.

Having said that, I'm even more inclined to believe that this was done by Islamic terrorists. But at this point, it's anyone's guess.

Could be a false flag. I am looking for this to be blamed on "right" wingers and used as an excuse to further erode liberty.

The government wants to control through fear.

Stay sharp and aware everyone.

Or its because its the day of the Boston Marathon and there were thousands of people gathered and relatively light security.

Thats not a bad idea. We should hold that in reserve just in case.

Born and grew up in the Boston burbs, even did first aid for the marathon a few times. Not totally against carpet bombing the area, but I do have some reservations. Lots of good schools there.

For the paranoid, lots of people here in TX claimed the Patriots winning the Suporbowl after 9/11 was a setup.

Interesting. I still see the original words just fine. But not in your quote.

Oops, now the words are gone for me,too.

"Boston. *********g horrible.
I remember, when 9/11 went down, my reaction was, 'Well, I've had it with humanity.'
But I was wrong. I don't know what's going to be revealed to be behind all of this mayhem. One human insect or a poisonous mass of broken sociopaths.
But here's what I DO know. If it's one person or a HUNDRED people, that number is not even a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a percent of the population on this planet. You watch the videos of the carnage and there are people running TOWARDS the destruction to help out. (Thanks FAKE Gallery founder and owner Paul Kozlowski for pointing this out to me). This is a giant planet and we're lucky to live on it but there are prices and penalties incurred for the daily miracle of existence. One of them is, every once in awhile, the wiring of a tiny sliver of the species gets snarled and they're pointed towards darkness.
But the vast majority stands against that darkness and, like white blood cells attacking a virus, they dilute and weaken and eventually wash away the evil doers and, more importantly, the damage they wreak. This is beyond religion or creed or nation. We would not be here if humanity were inherently evil. We'd have eaten ourselves alive long ago.
So when you spot violence, or bigotry, or intolerance or fear or just garden-variety misogyny, hatred or ignorance, just look it in the eye and think, 'The good outnumber you, and we always will.'" - Patton Oswalt

I was watching the news around 4:30pm and saw a first responder giving cpr to a man. Only saw the compression's, I think they were using one of those bottle things for the breaths. I was in total shock watching that on the news coming from Boston.

Was anyone else watching at that time?
