    But it's good to know you don't think Timothy McVeigh was a cowardly terrorist.
    Federal buildings are legitimate targets though for acts of violence aimed at government.

    I lived in Boston for 25 years. Most of my friends are there....

    April 15. The Tax Day, of course. But that kind of terrorists would not target a crowd of civilians.

    April 15 is also the birthday of Kim Il-sung, the god-founder of North Korea.

    Re: Explosions reported near finish line at Boston Marathon

    I just want to throw this out there, for the record in case I end up being right. Let me preface this by saying, I'm absolutely going on on my own personal gut feeling.

    When I saw this happen, my memory instantly flashed back to the story about the guy who got into a shoot out with a Texas cops back in March. I remember reading the part of the story that he had bomb making materials in his trunk. My thought at the time, was 'oh crap, what was that intended for, and who else was involved?' Obviously, it's entirely possible that its a sick coincidence, but my gut is screaming at me, that the two are connected. Obviously, we will see as events unfold, but I wanted to put it out there. I definitely have no experience or qualifications to make assumptions, I'm just throwing it my first instinct.

    Did anyone else experience this twinge, or was it just me?

    During war, yes. During peace, not so much.

    During times of rebellion and protest as well. You don't need to "declare" war, our government doesn't anymore so why should we? Proactive, interventionist policies to fight them there instead of here; yes? Though here vs. there is a lot different for localized revolt vs. State sponsored Imperial Interventionism.

    As if this story is close enough to my heart, a fellow BU student is one of the one's who is critical injured.

    Yeah, but also consider that extremists of any ideology are always at war in their own minds even if it's one sided.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
