    No, creating terror is not the goal of terrorists. It is a means to an end (an end these terrorists won't accomplish)

    I would also add the suspects might have left bombs planted throughout the city. During the Thursday night chase they were throwing pipe bombs at the police. The next day during the lock down I heard over the police scanner that they were detonating several pipe bombs.

    So, you think 2 guys with pressure cookers, guns and no training could have destroyed the western world? Do you think they expected to? Or do you think they merely expected to create terror.

    I have to wonder if you're intentionally not getting it. I'll repeat it, just in case you're being sincere

    Creating terror is not the goal of terrorists. It is a means to an end.

    Saying that the terrorists won because of the effort we put into capturing them is like saying Japan won WWII because they made us devote so much time and money developing nuclear weapons.

    Wow, several pipe bombs? That might kill one or two people! If they're sitting on them.

    For a guy and his kid brother, with hand-made and carried bombs and guns, terror is all they could expect to occur. I'm sure they didn't expect to destroy the western world. You've completely lost perspective here.

    SO now you can read minds, and know that they were not acting under orders, or in league, with some other organization?

    And if you think the only expectation they could have was either (a) create terror, or (b) destroy the western world, then it is you who have lost perspective, not to mention rationality

    Ok, what do you think they expected to happen? I bet they didn't expect for a million people to be "sheltering in place" and Boston to be a ghost town. I'm pretty sure that was well beyond their wildest expectations.

    You're accusing me of wanting more carnage? That's a really scummy thing to do.
