No, AtomKraft, the bombs should be dropped on Mecca during the Hajj.

Why?

Bomb a leisure activity, running, is paid back by bombing a leisure activity, walking (around in circles around that black rock ... )

Simple, when you understand proportional response.

I'm probably as disgusted by the act and images by you, perhaps a respectful period of reflection is needed, so I will bow out on this occasion.

Sunray Minor: can you point to the logic you used to conclude that a "NRA nut" chose to bomb the Boston Marathon to further his cause?

Beyond being an NRA member myself, and not a nut, I find your reflexive bigotry about par for the course.

Lonewolf.

Got it!

So we should act as the terrorists act, right?

Which makes us....?

Sunray, I never said Muslim, so don't start accusing me of something I am not. I am a member of NRA and would be the first to call for eradicatin of a fellow member who committed this act, if it turns out to be true.

Let's wait and find out who did it. In the mean time can we agree that whoever it is needs to be eradicated.

It's quite clear to me, it's time to ban bombs...

Oh... They are??? Then how could this have happened?

You haven't. Not recently. Not since August 1945.

The US is a violent country, and violence begets violence. Add to that significant paranoi .....

Why significant paranoi? It's not as if they anticipate an invading army of Canadians or Mexicans, so all the guns are there to protect their owners from a) the government b) the police or armed forces and c) other Americans. Every expectation to learn that the "bomber" was home-grown, and had a beef with Boston City Council.

I'm curious, too, about Sunray's concern. He's worried about an NRA nutter, when I can't think of a single attack committed on behalf of NRA, or by an identified NRA member.

Meanwhile, dozens of innocents die EVERY SINGLE DAY around the world at the hands of Muslim zealots and Sunray sees fit to throw out a non sequitur about Iranians looking like Muslims, so we would, based on that, bomb Iran.

Perhaps you could enlighten me as to what I'm missing. Otherwise, I despair.

I think what Sunray meant to say is "they look like Arabs" when infact Iranians are not Arabs, they are Persians. They are, by majority Muslem, however, as are Arabs, although there are many Arabs that are Christian. I don't know how many (percentage wise) Persians are Christian, if any.

I doubt it, but he may have been responsible for PPRuNe being down, earlier.

What you are missing is the fact, that the US kills brown people at a rate of factor 10-100 or higher, compared to 'muslim zealots' killing US people. Going by that fact, the biggest terrorist would be the US.
You are just not aware of it, because your mainstream media fosters your ignorance and because it doesn't happen on US soil.

Interflug, the wall came down, a long time ago. You don't have to bash USA any more.

Maybe the mods can make a separate thread for all the gleeful creeps who populate threads like this.

Dushan, the wall is irrelevant here. How is telling how it is "bashing the US"?
That How many "brown" people - many if not most of them innocent - have died from US hand after 9/11?
A million? more?
Tell me.

Not nearly as many as killed by Germans. Now go away, please, before the maggots get too thick in here.

That's also irrelevant to this issue today. You guys don't like to hear the truth. That's unfortunate. Maggots indeed. Wait at least with your ignorant rants against foreigners, until it's supported by the facts.

My sympathies are with the innocent victims in Boston and their families.

Boston today

As it happens I was today watching the Red Sox

So to give you the latest without all the political stuff.

3 dead including an 8 year old.
At least 170 injured of which many have had amputations and many more in critical state.

2 devices exploded


Its Patriots day in Massachusetts so a big holiday. Lots of people both local & overseas go there to participate and see the Marathon, and watch the Red Sox baseball game etc.

To touch upon some lucky aspects of this day, if one can say that!

The area is packed with some of the best hospitals in the world. Brigham & Womens, Mass General, Childrens Hospital, Tufts to name but a few.

They all have handled many casualties today and many are critically injured.

Also many medical personnel on hand for the marathon.

The tv, the press are full of conjecture, so called experts and no nothing politicians full of hot air, but lets wait and calmly digest and see what all develops.

Plenty of suspects out there to cast suspicion upon!

We have Harvard, MIT and many other fine institutions of learning and lots of overseas students. Boston is a cosmopolitan city just on a smaller scale.

It is tax day in the US today but not in Massachusetts as its a holiday so it's deadline is tomorrow!
