History always repeats itself, as long as we give extremists a chance to act on their indoctrinated beliefs.

I'm not religious, so I can't pray for you - but my heart goes out to everyone affected.

Are they saying it's a bombing? Or something else?

I can't believe some of the footage CNN is showing, especially people getting carried off by stretchers.

As I posted on Boston board, this is terrible news to hear.

Let's just hope that there weren't many injuries/casualties and that no posters from HF were negatively impacted.

Best of luck.

Airspace over #Boston closed. Reports coming in that ball bearings found-therefore not an accident but an intentional act to inflict harm.

This is much bigger than I initially thought... Hopefully nothing else happens.

Read some speculations of suicide bombers? all the pics I found showed lots of blood but not enough to prove a suicide bomber. How tragic. Definately cancle or move the game if even rumors of unfound bombs/threats.

They're not confirming whether it was intentional or not. But obviously, rumors of ball bearings being shot into crowds speaks volumes.

From my friend on Facebook, staying at one of the hotels downtown:

"Another explosion just now! Phones will not work here right now except FB..."

followed by a request to call her parents and let them know she's okay.

I think the fact there's three separate bombs would make it practically impossible to be an accident.

A big hand to the Police for controlling that explosion. While the rest of the city panics, fears, worries and tries to process, these guys have to put away all their emotions, risk their own safety to ensure the safety of others. In times like this, I don't think there's ever enough gratitude expressed for the individuals who do this. A bright spot in a darkened moment.

Any further explosions are controlled explosions by the police, detonating any undetonated devices. At least I hope so.

Edit: Jesus, guess not. When's it going to end?

Ball Bearings is a similar setup to a claymore mine. Powerful and deadly

They were garbage can bombs, not suicide bombers.

Unbelievable. My thoughts are with the victims.

Sweden's only suicide bomber only managed to take himself out.

My thoughts are with those injured in Boston. Details are sill coming in, but we need to not jump to conclusions without all the facts
