What (who?) do ya'll think is responsible? Speculation begins now.

My prayers go out to everyone impacted by this terrible event. :-(

A picture is worth a thousand words. Post 102 is worth more.

I’m late to the party, but I think this is the best song. Enjoy!

My cousin works in Boston, and thankfully she's okay. Couldn't talk to her very long, as she's helping a co worker try to find a family member. Also learned my other cousin got bad medical news today, so horrible day all around.

 

I honestly don't know what's worse, a terrorist being responsible, or just some sick minded individual(s) acting on incomprehensible motives.

There was a large blast in Iraq today that killed 55.  I wonder if this was coordinated.

Tough news for me, as a resident of MA. I'm not in the country right now, but I know people who were there. They're okay, but it just pains me. Three explosions, one at the JFK library. A bad day for my favorite city.

Cobb, even though I am not a resident of MA, it pains me as well.   I am sure everyone else in here feels the same way.  

My prayers go out to all the victims and their friends and family.

I'm only in my early 20s... has the past year actually been way more destructive with all these evil acts happening, or is it just the fact that I'm starting to tune into the news more? Dark Knight Massacre, Newtown Massacre, Boston Marathon Massacre, not to mention the stream of shootings here in Seattle lately...

Prayers for everyone who was there, and their families.

Some people call them Force Ghosts. I call them Midichlorian Swarms.

Bad things have happened throughout history. I can recall some pretty awful and tragic events in the 80's and 90's. We simply learn about them much faster these days, and there are more cameras in more places than ever before. There has also been the spectre of copycats in the wake of such events.

Hopefully, some of those cameras caught an image of the bastards who did this.

Someone at the National Geographic channel ought to have thought about putting something else on in place of a 9/11 documentary today.

Yup.

And after all the homebrew terrorist attacks over the last 12 months, I would say it's bordering on racist to automatically assume this is related to any Muslim organization. It may well be the case, but the most destructive acts of terrorism in the last few years in the USA have been perpetrated by good old fashioned white American Christians, so let's not get ahead of ourselves.

Get used to it. American, Land of the Free Rich White Man. That's not changing any time soon :/.


Don't mind me, I just watched a film on "intelligent design" and it leaves me very VERY cynical as to my country's smarts.

Saw this on the news here in the UK. Such a terrible thing. I just can't understand why someone would want to hurt so many innocent people. My thoughts are with the people of Boston.

I just saw on CNN there was a third explosion at JFK library.   

If I had one guess, I'd guess Al Qaeda did this. 

yeh, because it has to be a Muslim terrorist doesn't it. It couldn't possibly be the act of an American Christian now, could it?

**sigh**

 

I have a feeling this is a home grown attach. Al Qaeda, then it would have more likely been a suicide bomber/s. My only other guess would be a North Korea sympathiser. But no one should jump to any conclusions yet as nothing is known.

I don't really consider Al Qaeda a Muslim organization,  I consider it a terrorist organization.   And I didn't assume anything, I guessed.   Considering 911, all the other attacks that Al Qaeda has pulled off and the fact that they constantly threaten America, it is not racist at all to suspect them.     Of course it doesn't have to be Al Qaeda,it could just be some home grown nut or a nut from some other country/religious believe.    A full investigation needs to be done in order to figure out who did this.

of course it doesn't have to a Muslim terrorist.   I was making a guess, not a conclusion.   btw, why does it have to be an American Christian?  It could be an America Jew or an American atheist or an American of some other religion.   Or it could be someone from England or France or N. Korea.   Who the heck knows.

a home grown attack would have more likely been some guy with a gun.  I could be wrong,  but Al Qaeda has planted bombs like this in public areas before haven't they?

Because there is effectively no one who bombs people in the United States in the name of French Judasim...That has actually never happened. It's wrong to make assumptions, but it is also stupid to ignore historical trends. White American gun-owners should be afraid of other white American gun-owners. You are more likely to be shot by the paranoid guy who has been insanely given a gun for no reason than you are by the immigrant down the street working two jobs trying to raise his kids. History has shown this to be a fact.

This is a horribly sad event. My heart goes out to everyone involved - victims, families, everybody.

I ran Boston a few years ago (the same day of the Virginia Tech massacre). I'm not trying to make this about me, but it's weird thinking about how in that race my mom and brother were standing along Boylston St., close to where the explosion further away from the finish occurred. Just people watching a race...

I really don't have words for this. Sickened and upset. To quote Boyz n' the Hood, "We're living in a violent world."

But you were still very quick to bring Al Quaeda into this when NOTHING is known and NO ONE has claimed any responsibility for it

All I did was guess Al Qaeda was responsible.    They have carried out multiple attacks against American and have threaten further attacks against American.    Is it really that much of a stretch to think it possible that they could be responsible for this?    

But again let's stress, that this needs to be fully and fairly investigated.   Of course it is possible that Al Qaeda had nothing to do with this.   Let this be fully investigated and see what the evidence shows.  I am fully open to the possibility that Al Qaeda is totally innocent of this.
