    No, they won nothing. NOTHING!

    One is dead, one captured, and the investigation continues.

    They did not break American resolve, and did not break American spirit.

    Americans are not so easily beaten down as others are.

    Americans are still strong, and still here.

    True this.

    This whole thing just stands testament to how easily the government can control us.

    Yes. That little boy was martyred. Bomber walked right up to him and put the bomb-bag down. That's no martyr; that's a murder with a depraved indifference to humanity. A loser.

    Yes , of course the cost was large just ask the Richard family how big the cost was to them. If they had not made such a quick arrest and this guy whereabouts were unknown it would also have cost the tourist industry of Boston.

    You got to jump on crime hard and fast. It is what it is.

    Its still terrorism and anyone that lived during the IRA days can testify how effective that type of warfare is, car bombs, nail bombs, pipe bombs you name it. As for the two terrorists themselves of course they are martyrs now and probably hero worshipped throughout the terrorist world. If they had wanted to escape they could of easily got a plane the next day and the FBI would of been none the wiser, instead they stayed and got into a gun fight with Boston's finest which then resulted in a whole city being shut down. Eco touched on this earlier in the thread but I will repeat what he said, what kind of message do you think that send to enemies of the west? Two young amateurs managed paralyze a whole US city so now think what 20 hardened al Qaeda could do with a bigger bankroll and better weapons.

    Don't get me wrong im happy these guys are off the streets and I commend the city of Boston for what must of been a tough week. But at the end of the day 2 guys were able to bomb a high profile sporting event, cause death and destruction, then were able to walk the streets for days after until the whole city is shut down to catch them. Its shambolic no matter what way you slice it.

    And with an administration and portion of the citizenry that refuses to deport illegal immigrants the dead will keep piling up so the Liberals can keep feeeling goood about themselves. For cripes sake the FBI knew this guy Tamerlan was involved with radicals, they must have known he did not have citizen status, why wasnt he immediatly deported? Probably because the guy in charge "Barak the Magnificent" (policy wise) didnt want to see that happen. We also see that some of the 9-11 terrorists overstayed there visas & if the goverment was doing there job, should have been deported.

    Just think if the people that were elected to office would do there sworn duties & enforce the law of the land when it comes to immigration, its certainly possible that 9-11 & this latest debacle may have never happened.

    Wake up! Certainly we couldnt stop terrrorism altogether but we could make it alot tougher on foreign terrorists.

    It will always be almost impossible to fight someone who is willing to take his own life in a bombing or shootout. Even in Israel which has to be the most defensive alert countries in the world where almost every citizen is armed they still deal with terrorist attacks.

    One postive note perhaps is that whatever you do in public you are on someone's camera.

    that's very true and I was again encouraged to see so many normal people helping that day of the bombing.
