If there is one thing I admire about the U.S.A, it is the heroes of there emergence services, when every one else runs away from danger (and so they should) these guys do not think twice about running straight towards it, true heroes

Well said, I agree. My heart goes out to the victims. Just sad that this happens.

I just cannot believe that an event as inspiring to the moral soul and spirit like a marathon, is still vulnerable to senseless tragedy like this

My thoughts and prayers to evryone in Boston, and to any of you who have friends and relatives impacted by this tragic event.

Watching the Canuck game in Nashville...class move by the Preds with a moment of silence.

Terrible stuff. On a side note, can 1040 please stop tweeting that Rintoul is ok? Seriously nobody gives a **** outside of his immediate family. I don't mean offense but I'm more affected by the death of an 8 yr old than Rintoul.

Hope they publicly execute whoever is responsible

yea last thing they deserve is credit for whatever twisted cause they did it for, just send them to Guantanamo without even a name so much as published in a tabloid.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking, too. Not that it's any better, really, but the backlash against a domestic entity is almost preferable to how many are going to be tarred with the same brush if "foreigners" are involved.

It seems pretty believable to me. If someone is going to send a message, or try and get a message across, they're going to do just that.

I'm surprised that nobody has claimed responsibility yet. It's making me wonder if it was not the usual suspects this time.

Bless all those civilians that ran into the chaos to help the injured.

I predict it was homegrown and domestic. Something along the lines ultra right wing ... Tea party.

I highly doubt it's Tea Party. They may be a party of the rich masquerading as a grass-roots populist movement, but they are merely a political movement, not terrorists. White supremacists or a radical cult maybe, but their 'message' is lost if they don't claim responsibility. A North Korean operation is a possibility too, although a very remote one. DPRK routinely denies involvement in covert attacks, but they are generally more interested in South Korean and Japanese targets. I still think that Al Qaeda is the most likely source, but it's interesting that they haven't taken credit for the attack yet, so I wouldn't be shocked if it wasn't them either.

If it was a domestic (ie right wing, KKK, Abortion etc) group it would be a departure from the norm. The only one that comes to mind is 1996 Olympics.

Typically domestic terrorists have targeted specific targets such as govnt buildings, police stations, court houses, abortion clinics and not just random mass casualties

Nothing can be ruled out of course.

Hopefully the US doesn't decide to invade another country because of this.

Historically, there's probably a higher likelihood of this being domestic than foreign, but even ignoring that, this shouldn't really change anything. Acts of terrorism are committed throughout the world on a near-daily, if not daily, basis. Beyond symbolism, Bin Laden's death is unlikely to have changed anything about that.
