    Damn right, brother!

    Too much smoke for a claymore. I'm betting that black poweder was used as the propellant.

    There aren't likes enough for that Boo. Gotta add, there will be no "understanding" of their cause or situation from me when they find those responsible for this.

    This is just horrible. Not nice news to wake up to here over the other side of the world. Thoughts are with all those involved and those of you who who have friends and family in the area.

    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.
    Are you saying that US vet's were setting off pipe bombs to attack civilians in Iraq? That sure sounds like what you are saying and well, I would need to see multiple sources on that before I told you where to go.

    It reminds me of a quote I saw on another site from Fred Rogers (aka Mr. Rogers):

    “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’ To this day, especially in times of ‘disaster,’ I remember my mother’s words, and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers - so many caring people in this world.” — Mister Rogers

    That's a good way to deal with tragedy like this and it's definitely a good way to help kids deal with it.

    Is your name Janet Napolitano? Here we have a Saudi National being detained and dont get me wrong he may not be involved but where do you come up with that notion?

    Re: Explosions reported near finish line at Boston Marathon

    So, did I miss anything...

    2 bombs in boston at end of marathon.
    1st bomb was several seconds before the last.
    Other unexploded devices were discovered.
    2 dead (1 8-yo) and 110 injured?
    According to gov, no threat was detected prior.
    Anything else?
    Education.

    I don't think these explosions were Claymore mines, just that the mention of ball bearings made me think of them.
