    Re: Explosions reported near finish line at Boston Marathon

    2 killed as 2 bombs explode at Boston Marathon.....

    Two bombs exploded near the finish of the Boston Marathon on Monday, killing two people, injuring 23 others and sending authorities rushing to aid wounded spectators, race organizers and police said.

    One runner, a Rhode Island state trooper, said he saw at least two dozen people with very serious injuries, including missing limbs.

    About two hours after the winners crossed the line, there was a loud explosion on the north side of Boylston Street, just before the photo bridge that marks the finish line. Another explosion could be heard a few seconds later.

    The Boston Marathon said that bombs caused the two explosions and that organizers were working with authorities to determine what happened. The Boston Police Department said two people were killed and 23 others injured.

    A third explosion was heard about an hour after the first two after authorities warned spectators to expect a loud noise from a water cannon.

    Sounds like this was a plot - two more bombs being reported found and being defused at this time.

    Go to the top of the page and on the left hand side what two words do you see ?

    I ruled out natural gas (sewer gas) because there would have been a huge crater.

    Terrorist attacks are beyond being a tragedy, they are part of our society today. They are either criminal acts violence or acts of war, depending where you stand politically. The Clinton administration said Al Qaeda was not a national security issue but a law enforcement issue. I don't agree with the Democrats, it was their position that Al Qaeda was a law enforcement issue that allowed 9/11 to happen.

    There are many in America who want America to become more like Europe. Bombings have become part of life in Europe. Remember the IRA ?

    Come to think of it, the IRA has established it's technicals in Boston decades ago. They wouldn't do that would they, not in America ?

    I heard on the radio, a veteran talking (who was there), that because of all the low level injuries (legs mainly) it was indeed a bomb. Not a gas explosion. Something that was on the ground when it detonated.

    Also they're apparently finding more bombs and are dismantling them.

    Thos was obviously a co-ordinated attack.
    Frankly I'm surprised that this is all that's happened since 9/11. I know that there have been many attempts, but this is the first successful attack in 12 years.

    The stock market being held up with printed currency and falling like a rock as people sell off their overpriced assets and equities is no surprise.

    The bombing is.

    I hope so.
