PS. Yes this could definitely be a false flag, but lets be careful not to lose our humanity in defense of our liberty. Lives were lost today.

Sure enough the lunatics are surfacing here again

contaminating again a great resource for insights and information and belittling the loss of life and related trauma. The guvment did it. Yep. Of course they did. Can you at least wait a day or two?

Occam's razor - someone or some group with an axe to grind against the community or against particular people for whatever reason - political or psychological is about a 90% certainty. CNN is reporting that a suspect is sought that had tried to gain access to a secure area. Dark skin, foreign accent.

But of course he would have been hired by the US government or the new world order to do the deed.

well...

Before jumping to the typical "false flag" lunacy, let's look at the evidence and work plausible theories. If you are going to do a false flag... you're going to go big to serve your agenda. This clearly isn't the case here.

We have bomb sniffing dogs, and talk of a drill. Obviously they knew something was going down, but why were the trash cans not removed? Every major event I hear about, they pull the trash cans around clustering people for this exact reason.

What if one of the FBI's famous entrapment cases went too far, and the "dud" turned into live devices? What terrorist attacks has the government stopped since 9/11? Only the ones they created and paraded in front of us. The stakes are higher right now, and I surely don't see anymore news about gold crashing.

drives me nuts when people try to apply occam's razor this way

occam's razor is not to be used as an excuse to stop thinking critically on a motive. it was never intended to be used as motive theory in investigating a crime.

that is belittling to occam, and belittling to people everywhere.

Exactly ...

... Occam's Razor requires one to use ALL the evidence and THEN the simplest answer that INCLUDES ALL THE EVIDENCE is PROBABLY the correct answer.

It does not mean, "Gee, I don't like no talk about no gubmint guys doin' somethin' I don't like ... so let's pretend they never do."

Having said that, the available evidence is very foggy. There is no real evidence yet to support any theory -- regardless of the Propaganda Media pretending otherwise in order to promote their own agendas.

Absolutely

Exactly, it's way too early and things will just have to play out.

"You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before." Rahm Emanuel

We need common sense bomb measures

Will the victims families of this event be flying on Air Force One any time soon?

But seriously though...

I can't wait to see what draconian measures are demanded by the people and swiftly passed under the false promise of protection.

If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.

Draco indeed

Question...

If the bombs were sitting there a while in trash cans, why would the bomb sniffing dogs not have noticed? Would the trash odor really be strong enough to trump such a dog's sense of smell?

Trash Cans

I've been reading that the bombs were in trash cans. How many large public events have you heard "trash cans are removed and manhole covers welded shut along the path", whether it's an IndyCar street race as in Baltimore, or any number of city parades.

So...everything is a false

So...everything is a false flag. Real people would never plant a bomb or shoot up a bunch of people.

No - not everything - but open your eyes

see the narrative already taking shape right on cue.

Fox and CNN have already planted the domestic terrorist idea - then they plant the Patriot Day seed - then they connect the terrorist and the patriot.

If it wasn't so damn predictable I would agree with you - but - come on - the story is always the same. And tomorrow stocks will crash and more liberties will be stripped.

Lather, rinse, repeat.

But it could be a domestic

But it could be a domestic terrorist. Or a very deranged individual.

My eyes are open. I'm just saying that when ever something terrible happens ...this forum always jumps the gun.

Yeh - I here you there - it is a quick trigger finger here

I suppose the prudent thing to do is to start piecing together siginificant facts and make a conclusion later - but it is hard when the MSM is already out and running - sometimes you just feel compelled to keep up.

Alas - it could be MANY things - but certainly a deranged indidvidual is behind it somewhere - that we can agree on.

There is never a reason or a cause that justifies killing random innocent people.

If news is already pulling the domestic terrorist/patriot card..

..Who is really jumping the gun here?

Then we are as guilty as

Then we are as guilty as they.

I bet it was the Mooninites!

Anyone else?

Aaron Russo, Nikola Tesla, Ron Paul, I'm jus' sayin'

A body armor backpack

might be a good idea when going to future public events.

So is it Iran? or Venezuela?


I wonder if this is just the pretext for whipping-up public support to now go to War against Venezuela (now that Chavez hand-picked successor has won, and will continue to push away U.S. Oil Companies and the CIA from their predatory theft of that region), or to now go to War against Iran -- which Washington has failed to prove has a "Nuclear Bomb" (because it doesn't).

After all, it was Boston that was the location chosen for the whole Sept 11. charade to commence, which was perpetrated on a public largely too dumb to even ask common-sense questions, or recognize that 3 Steel-Framed Buildings collapsing into their own footprint was a physical impossibility (since not even one had ever happened before in World History from heat or fire, plus only two of them were even struck by airplanes to begin with).

So are we too stupid to ask questions this time too?

In a few days, we will no doubt have some blame assigned by Washington to some one or to some group. They will be called "acts of terror" sponsored by who? ....Iran? ... Venezuela?

After all, The U.S. always needs another Country to invade and turn to rubble right?


Thought

MY HEART AND PRAYERS GO OUT TO THE VICTIMS OF THIS SENSLESS ACT

Read "The Man Who Was Thursday"

...by G.K. Chesterton, and then laugh at the clowns who try to script terrorism into hearts & minds.

Laughter, to prevent the next scripted tragedy.

DHS/BPD ran a drill called Boston Urban Shield in 2011 & 2012

The website (http://BostonUrbanShield.org/) is from 2011, but apparently, a couple of locals called in to say that the same drill was conducted in November of 2012, as well; if anyone can find a site for that, please update them.

But, for those interested, please look through the site and see if you can find any similarities in the types of drills conducted then, and how they responded today.

From the New York Post:

Authorities ID suspect as Saudi national in marathon bombings, under guard at Boston hospital.

Investigators have a suspect — a Saudi Arabian national — in the horrific Boston Marathon bombings, The Post has learned.

Law enforcement sources said the 20-year-old suspect was under guard at an undisclosed Boston hospital.

This story will be killed within the next 3 hours if my guess is correct.

How did they know so quick?

They just happened to nab someone?

Maybe you should start learning the game of chess

What is the easiest material to buy in the USA right now to build a bomb - yeh - all of you go to fertilizer and diesel fuel.
How about the real easy stuff to get - like gun powder - currently one of the only ways left to actually get ammunition - by making it yourself.

Want to bet these bombs were made with gun powder bought at a gun store from somebody with a criminal history?

You know what comes after that.

So joke about banning ied's - then realize it aint so funny.

We should make people

register their bombs, and create a national bomb registry.
