Who did it?

Let's have your speculation, informed or, more likely, otherwise.

5 should read "Other Muslim terrorists"

by Anonymousreply 104/16/2013

al Queada would have claimed it already.

by Anonymousreply 204/16/2013

Yep. It's tax day in America. This has anti-government assholes written all over it.

I'd be happy to be proven wrong but it really smells like the friends of Timothy McVeigh.

by Anonymousreply 304/16/2013

I think lone wolf nutjob.

by Anonymousreply 404/16/2013

Not only Tax Day. In Boston it's Patriots Day. These assholes always think of themselves as patriots.

by Anonymousreply 504/16/2013

True enough, R5, as someone born and raised a Bostonian I should have referenced that. People don't understand about Patriot's Day outside of the Commonwealth.

These fuckers do always think of themselves as patriots, although they hate America and Americans.

Whoever it is, whatever their reason for doing this, we will bring them to justice or we will bring justice to them. They're toast either way.

Arbarabay Altersway!

It's interesting that on Sirius/XM, the most conservative right-wing station is called "Patriot Channel", which implies that anyone who is liberal or even moderate, is not a "patriot"! I think the right-wing did this. We're trying to take their guns away, they think. Well, they'll show us!

by Anonymousreply 904/16/2013

If we find out that this was anti-government gun huggers then will definitely take their guns.

*we will definitely take their guns.

My first instinct was a lone wolf nutjob like Randall Terry. But after hearing on all networks that there was a Penske truck which tried to circumvent the secured area, I am thinking small group of nutjobs. Just like in OKC and WTC the 1st, where there is a rental truck, there is likely more than one conspirator.

Juliannhe Moore ... seriously.

by Anonymousreply 1304/16/2013

There were three devices. It wouldn't be impossible for one person to place three devices, but it still suggests that this wasn't a lone-wolf attack.

As for the possibility of a tax-revolt motivation, I'd think such people would be more likely to hit a federal target rather than a state target. This could still be some sort of "modern patriot" action, since it was on Patriot Day and since Boston is so tied to the American Revolution.

The police are looking for a man who tried and failed to get access to the grandstand shortly before the explosions. I suspect he was the bomber and the second bomb was also intended to go off at the finish line grandstand across the street from the first, but he left it down the block as a fall-back.

R10/R11 - I'm curious. Exactly how do you propose taking someone's guns? How would that work?

by Anonymousreply 1804/16/2013

The intelligent answer: I don't know.

by Anonymousreply 1904/16/2013

The request is for your speculation, R19. Of course you don't know.

by Anonymousreply 2004/16/2013

Small cell of wingnuts. Probably with deniable ties to NRA, Tea Party etc.

by Anonymousreply 2104/16/2013

It wasn't Al Qaida. The bomb wasn't "very good". The photos of the blast show that the windows above it didn't even break. Plus they're not bragging about it.

by Anonymousreply 2204/16/2013

Maybe Al Qaeda in Iraq- the wonderful group our invasion opened he door to. Incidently, 30 were killed yesterday by bombs in Iraq- scores more injured. Details, details.

As I said on another post- we sure cleaned up Iraq, didn't we. No reason for them not to be eternally greatful the US.

by Anonymousreply 2304/16/2013

As a matter of fact, the NY Times today says the bomb was just like those used by Al Qaeda in Iraq- who would not be there today if it was not for our "liberation".

by Anonymousreply 2404/16/2013

The NY Times says Saddam Hussein has a vast arsenal of Weapons of Mass Destruction. Who cares what the NY Times says?

I, for one, welcome our new Iraqi overlords.

It turned out it was J.R. who had himself killed.

by Anonymousreply 2804/16/2013

Maybe a Vancouver Canucks fan still pissed off that their team lost to the Boston Bruins at the Stanley Cup a few years ago. Those Canadians can sure hold a grudge.

by Anonymousreply 3004/16/2013

The black kid did it.

by Anonymousreply 3104/16/2013

no, it's only the Vancouverites that react like that, R30

by Anonymousreply 3204/16/2013

I think it was a domestic act, like Oklahoma City. Don't know how many but real terrorists would have claimed responsibility by now. Homegrown terrorist cowards like the right wing freaks I think are behind this one are scurrying now, realizing what they've done, trying not to get arrested.

by Anonymousreply 3304/16/2013

I doubt tax day or Patriot's Day had anything to do with it.

The asshole(s) just wanted to hit a high-profile, crowded public event, easy to access, and to inflict as much chaos as possible. In their mind, the Boston Marathon was ideal, the date had nothing to do with it.

by Anonymousreply 3404/16/2013

First of all, a pressure cooker bomb had to be in a bag big enough to be conspicuous.

by Anonymousreply 3504/16/2013

Probably a Skull and Bones initiation rite.

Ted Kaczynski went to Harvard. It's not outside the realm of possibility that some anti-social nutjob at one of the many universities in/around Boston carried out the attack.

by Anonymousreply 4004/17/2013

What is so bad about being overtaken by the Iraquis? There'll be moussaka and hummus enough for everyone!

by Anonymousreply 4104/17/2013

I thought moussaka was greek

MIT prank

by Anonymousreply 4304/17/2013

What if it's a wounded veteran of Iraq?

by Anonymousreply 4404/17/2013

I didn't want to be the first person to bring it up, but I'm glad others are starting to wonder if Nana Mouskouri was involved somehow.

Mitt Romney

by Anonymousreply 4604/17/2013

are there any good political or conspiracy sites where people are discussing it

by Anonymousreply 4704/17/2013

i think it's safe to say R48 did it. can we get a trace on that, please?

I know I live in "the bubble," but we had several threats of violence in recent days; the French anti-gay marriage crowd actually said "there will be blood" and then today, Pat Buchanan wrote a lengthy piece on Wrld Nut Daily about Xtians engaging in civil disobedience. There are over half a million signatories to the Manhattan Declaration. Is it too much of a stretch to think this is an act by religious fanatics against one of the first states to have gay marriage, and by judicial fiat no less? Remember, NOM is bitterly fighting the election commission in Maine over being forced to disclose their donor list as required by law. You know how religious fanatics can justify almost anything in the name of The Lord. A couple of bombs in (perception being reality) the liberal capital of one of the most liberal states seems conceivable.

After reading my Times this morning I've been thinking. With so many many people injured , most of the injuries and amputations are legs and feet. This was a marathon, the most famous in the world. So I'm thinking this was a perverse, malicious lone wolf. Some POS who is somewhere in Boston, in his mother's basement.

by Anonymousreply 5304/17/2013

Judging by the evidence found so far, I'd say a disgruntled cook did it

It was the Baader-Meinhof!
