    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.
    April 15th is also the day of the Boston Marathon which appears to have been the target. Had the marathon been the 13th or the 17th, I unfortunately believe the results would have been no different.

    That may be true, but we should not accept their wrong headed thought process as valid justification.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    As of 7PM they were still suspicious of a Saudi national here on a student visa.

    "CBS News senior correspondent John Miller said there is “an individual in custody,” a Saudi national who was near the scene of the blast.
    Miller said a civilian claims the person was acting suspiciously and chased him down and tackled him after the explosions.
    The man is said to be cooperating with investigators and denies any involvement."


    "Boston police say there was no specific intelligence warning of any kind of attack, and federal officials tonight say there is no reason to think that this is part of any larger threat. At this point they believe it is confined to Boston, but a meeting tonight will decide whether any kind of national alert will be sent out. There is no suspect in custody, authorities say, but some people are being questioned, including some with injuries who were taken to Boston hospitals. One of those, a person in whom there is some interest, is a young person who was here on a student visa," NBC reports

    Maybe not to us but we still have to pick up after them.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    While I agree with you in theory, I won't accept this type of attack as justified in any such valid effort against a government.

    After watching some of these videos people continue to impress me. Right after the explosions many people can be seen running towards the carnage. Many runners who just finished running over 26 miles can be seen running back to help. Makes me proud to be a part of this great country.

    Isn't today Patriot's Day in Boston? Perfect holiday for some anti-American scumbag to launch an attack.

    One would almost believe that it was a vet that set the bombs, because there were multiple explosions. There were usually multiple explosions in Iraq.

    This attack was NOT a valid effort against a government, nor shall I say that it was. Valid effort must at the very least target GOVERNMENT targets, not the populace. I am not defending this attack, merely pointing out that the absolute statements of infinity some are promoting are not true.
