    Why, out of interest?
    Multiple blasts at a well organised event with large security, more than likely a group of people responsible. More groups outside the US than inside the US who would like to conduct such an attack. I understand people being PC and staying neutral, but the highest likelihood was always an attack, and the highest likelihood is some kind of Islamic terror group or sympathisers. I don't know of course, but that doesn't mean I can't make a guess from my living room.

    Library bombing confirmed, not a controlled explosion.

    What kind of low life blows up a library? What next, a hospital?
    i hate to quote films when a tragedy occurs but
    "some people just want to watch the world burn"
    i get the feeling it might have simply been an unprovoked attack, like those school shootings that have been happening lately

    A man? On the roof of a nearby building on the scene. :holmes:

    Odd stance etc. if a bomb had just went off I would be running out arms flailing everywhere.


    Almost certainly nothing mind, just saw it somewhere.
    Looks like bigfoot.

    Another excuse to start a war in guessing..., whose fault was it this time Iran or Korea hmm...
    This isn't as big as 9/11, so a war will not be started, plus some americans are opening their mind and realising that the iraq war was pointless

    The suspect — a Saudi national who suffered shrapnel wounds in today's blast — is currently being guarded in a Boston hospital.
    Considering the panic that happened after, he's probably just been arrested on suspicion of being a Muslim.

    Hmm we will see if an invasion happens, however it is pretty difficult to invade such powerful nations. Sad for the families of the victims.

    Dear The Atlantic,

    In what world is it necessary to post a picture of an injured party being taken away from the scene with a disconcerting amount of bare leg bone showing, covered in blood, etc? I'm not even talking just about their readers' sensibilities, but this person has been seriously injured and now he also has to deal with having what was, probably, a terrifying moment for him immortalised. Some things need to stay private.

    Urgh.
