    ps. You guys are determined to make me look like a dick, aren't you?
    There are not men known to the authorities who are suspected of bombing a public event on the loose everyday having already car jacked, robbed and also killed a cop sitting in his car.

    You aren't being reasonable eco. That's the problem. Public safety first. One is dead the other caught, and he'll spend the rest of his days in prison. Neither won.

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    I suspect the survivor will be tried federally and executed under the same laws that were used to whack Tim McVeigh

    Good point. Not wise to have people out and about to run into more mayhem.

    I'm trying to be reasonable. A guy and his kid brother, with pressure cookers, guns and no training just crippled a major city for a day. You think that's reasonable?

    One is dead the other caught, and he'll spend the rest of his days in prison. Neither won.
    So, they would have to destroy western civilization AND escape to win? Aren't you setting the goals for a couple of untrained dip****s with no real weaponry a bit high?

    Yep, I would expect the same TD.

    hopefully, if you ever have to confront terrorists, their minds had been blown to mist before you have to deal with them

    It's not mind reading, it's simple logic. How much could a guy and his kid brother, without any serious weaponry, expect to accomplish? The fall of the western world? haha

    In fact, who cares what they expected!

    Let's just look at what they did and with what.

    In that case, you are failing miserably. Any reasonable person would realize that there are more options than merely wanting to "create terror" and "destroy western civilization"

    When are you going to drop that little piece of insanity?

    It's not insane to presume they intended to create terror. Ok, how about this: who cares what they intended or expected.

    The bottom line is, a guy and his kid brother managed to lockdown a million people and turn Boston into a ghost town with nothing more than pipe bombs, a couple pressure cookers and guns.
