    President Obama saying:

    "We still don't know who did this or why but make no mistake, we will get to the bottom of what happened"

    "Any responsible individual, any responsible group will feel the full weight of justice"

    "We will find who did this and hold them accountable"

    As usual, this horrific crime will be blamed on some random Arab, who will actually be a CIA/Mossad agent in disguise and will be "held captive" by the CIA, never to be seen or heard by anyone ever again. In the meantime, the US will have given itself the opportunity to pillage, rape and plunder more countries in the Middle East with support from the many braindead US citizens. Hundreds of thousands more third-world civilians will die in the US's pursuit of imaginary terrorists while the US swims gleefully in its newly acquired oil. What a world we live in...

    People need to stop being so idiotic. Arguing amongst each other isn't going to achieve or resolve anything. There's hate between people on a forum, I dare to think what goes through the minds of extremists. Sadly as Thatcher once said, there is no such thing as society.

    CBS throwing the term 'terrorism' around with so little information. Dire.
    To be fair though it is terrorism. Anything that happens with intent to create fear in a society is classified as terrorism. I definitely think this falls into that category.

    But they are throwing around suspects and reasons for it without information which is poor, poor journalism.

    If someone does something in the name of, say, Islam and they think it's justified by the religion/texts then that's their interpretation. They are​ Muslims, like it or not.
    Of course, it's "No True Scotsman". If anyone does anything embarrassing to Islam, then they immediately become "non-Muslims".

    Logically fallacious.

    It's not your place to say whether someone is or is not what they claim to be, that is a cop out.

    You contradict yourself. They also interpret themselves as Muslims - why should their interpretation outweigh others? What if they claimed to be the saviors of humanity? Are they then the saviors of humanity regardless of public denial of this?

    I disagree with your opinion.
    Its not really an opinion. We have been involved in Iraq, Afghanistan, Mali as part of the War on Terror, how many wars have we been involved in due to bombings in Nigeria or such. US attacks lead to greater consequences for the western world than attacks in Africa, that is a fact.

    Even if the suspects claim to be Muslim, they are not muslims- muslims are forbidden from attcacking innocents, women and civillians- there's no war, no attacking. Islamic rules of warfare (like Jus ad Bellum in the West) condemn all forms of terrorism- especially those harming innocent civillians.
    claim to Spongebob, but I'm not.

    A Muslims's Prayer to the fallen at Boston resonates just as loud as a non-
    Just because they may claim to be Muslim, doesnt mean they are one- I can Muslims in condemning the atrocity- we stand equal, united and opposed to these extremists.

    The Ummah is with you Boston, all Humanity is with you Boston.
    Whats the penalty for apostocy in islam? Its death, there is plenty in the Quaran to justify killing 'infidels' Thankfully most muslims arent like that but the people doing these things believe they are and that the Quaran is the word of God so they are muslims whether you like it or not.

    Personally i think people are getting ahead of themselves, this looks more and more like a domestic attack like the Oklahoma City bombings.

    Yes, whilst it may be their interpretation, if there has been study, debate and objective rules established by a doctrinal base (like the Quran) on the rules of warfare, then this undermines any subjectivism by the terrorist.

    Example: Murder is the act of taking a life, with the intent. If my interpreation of that differs, the that is subjective, and wrong; objectively, since the law has dictated it, there can be no other interpretation: my interpreation may be my interpretation, but its wrong plain and simple; like the act that they do- which is Un-Islamic, and therefore, no Muslim would do it- once he has does the act, any claim to be muslim is negated.

    What a load of tosh. If a guy was to dress, act and consider himself a woman, however much he deluded himself, he wouldn't be a woman. Strange comparison, but its true. People who kill in the name of religion contradict faith.

    It's despicable how Facebook pages use graphic images of disasters just to get likes. Horrible.
