    No. I'm only pointing out that Breivik's attack was totally different than the one in Boston. If you would like to prove me wrong, then get after it. I welcome your evidence.

    It was different. Let's wait and see who did this before we go passing judgement.

    Uh...ok. I don't recall pointing a finger at anyone, or group in particular. Did I?

    In times like these...we should remember that right or left...Democrat/Republican or otherwise....a lot of us share one title. American.

    I understand that soon this story will fade and we'll be back to the same bickering over the same nonsense. Just remember that we can come together and we should for our people, country, and livelihoods.
    That WAS political. To be fair, many US citizens arent "american", in that they dont support the founding ideals of liberty and justice. Those people are in both parties and in both ideologies, and are both live in blissful ignorance and peace, and perhaps in this case, harbor violent tendencies and think violence is the only way to control people or free themselves.

    Since we both consider ourselves libertarian, I think you would agree with me that, if this is a domestic terrorist, then our march towards bigger govt isnt helping to stop those who think violence against innocents is a solution.

    Seems like just the other day that obama was running for a second term with the "Alquiada has been decimated" claim.

    The "No True American" fallacy in action.
    Don't work out, work in.

So I conclude we intentionally surround ourselves with sick crap like the Red Dragon flick is ful of. One huge issue has to be addressed, why is it liberalism in America screams out for banning guns while making billions trying to make people scream/ The cast of characters participating in horror films lke The Exorcist and Red Dragon rank among the most voal and radical of all liberals. Is this not a monstorous hipocacy?
    Speak for yourself. I've never found any of that crap entertaining and I'm considered a "liberal" by some.

    Perhaps the smell of garbage in with the bombs masked the odor for the dogs? Could it be that simple?

    No you didn't.

    I was saying in general to everyone. Not that it's stopping people...

    He kinda did. He used an initial bomb to kill a few people which also acted as a diversion so he could maximise killings with an a concurrent second attack.

    It only required one guy.
