Hey friends, the USA has lost its mind
« on: April 19, 2013, 01:08:30 AM »
Don't know if we've reached the critical point or not, but the bombings haven't stopped since the Boston Marathon. More bombings and shootings tonight.

:dunno:

OK, carry on.

Looks like it may be over now. Both Marathon bombers arrested.

Don't know what to say about that...I'm never sure about our media's reporting of foreign events. Though I suppose they should be better for the US than less interesting places, where you need something "extra" just to get the place in the news.
 
How many bombings have there been?

Monday at the Marathon and again tonight. Same two clowns. I guess it's not going any further than this.

Good thing it's over then. There was concern here it might be just a part of a bigger operation.

One's thoughts are with the victims, their families & the communities/authorities in Boston, at this traumatic time.  What an appalling attack.

At the time I started this, it wasn't clear whether it was domestic or foreign terrorism. Looks like a pair of amateur hour terrorists with ties overseas.

They are Russian Islamists who have been living in the U.S. for a while. They have the second man cornered right now

first of all, Russians are Christians so you can say Muslims from Russia but not Russian Muslims, no such a thing.

second, I mean really if you are a terrorist why the f.uck attacking marathon runners? how can you be such a coward. go bomb Microsoft or Apple (guys, you know I'm just being sarcastic), why poor runners. I'm so pissed about this, like grrrrrrrrr.

Russia is a multireligious country. I don't see why "Russian Muslims" should be misleading, nor that "Russian Atheists" or "Russian Buddhists" would be even though all these are minorities. But I understand you want this form of description to describe only the majority version? I was unaware of this linguistic preference.

Don't look for logic among terrorists....

Lit, I admit I'm so frustrated with all of this. However, Russians are Christians. Yes, there are Muslims in Russia ... I don't have any problem with it... many great Muslims leave in Canada too... still , these terrorists ... I don't get it. what do they want? what do they try to prove? do they want me to believe in Allah? ... it will never happen.  do we need another 9/11? You can't even travel normally any more ... regular Canadian people trying to go to spend some time for Christmas with their families  are 'treated'  like criminals at the airports. it's just crazy.

few months ago I went to Vancouver to visit a friend. There was this very old lady (at the airport) in front of me ... poor thing kept beeping going through that stupid security door.... beep, beep, beep ... She was senile, had some keys and some coins in her pockets and it took forever.... she was probably 80 something years old ...  old Canadian Caucasian woman (not that really matters) ... I was like, are you people that stupid? Who is she going to hurt? They should've been charged for stressing this lady out. plain stupid  :\

Mods, please move this thread to non-tennis. I thought it was more than a couple of amateur clowns from Al-Queda hence the title of the thread and the reason I posted it here.

Actually, literally seconds after the lockdown was lifted, a homeowner saw blood in his backyard.  Went to his covered boat, peaked inside, and there was #2.  Moments later he was surrounded.

There are less than 50% Christians in Russia, even including all the different denominations. Muslims are 6,5% of the population. 25% are "spiritual but non-religious", 13% are Atheists and 5,5% are undecided. All other major religions have a tiny minority as well.

What terrorists want? I don't know. I can't think like them. But it is fairly obvious they all want one thing - publicity. They love it when they make big news. Apart from that, your guess is as good as mine.

As for the old granny, they have to search her, if they are to search at all. Why? Because if old grannys very not searched, the terrorists would plant weapons on their own grannys, and then collect their weapons from them after boarding. Terrorists have shown before that there is no ethical limits to what they will do. They will sacrifice their own children, so why not their grandmothers as well?

Glad they got the sicko.
 
But the idea has been planted in others with those kind of inclinations.
