    Didn’t take long for some idiot to try to make this political.

    On the same day as the Boston bombing, the USA bombed a wedding in Afghanistan, killing something like ten times as many people. If it’s wrong when they do it to us, it’s wrong when we do it to them.

    @Gary Kleppe

    You sound like for the Boston bombing, you know who “they” are? Have you seen some news I’ve missed?

    I have no idea who set the bombs in Boston, but I don’t think it matters for the point I was making. Let me rephrase: If it’s wrong when it’s done to us, it’s wrong when it’s done by us.

    My personal guess is that it was a local guy who has an ongoing fight with the city of Boston.

    Gary K, I’m so with you.
    DrCanuck, don’t you remember how much flack there was over calling the Benghazi, Libya consulate attack ‘terrorism’ before the facts were known. How soon we forget!

    Prayers ascend for the murdered, maimed, and shattered hearts and minds of all affected by the Copley Square bombings.

    Because is shows a basic, deep-seated dishonesty on the part of our “leader”.

    Gary, IMO you neglect a ton of facts that make the 2 incidents totally different.
    The Marathon runners had done nothing to provoke the yet unknown bombers who carried out an evil sneak attack on innocent humans.
    -
    Afghanistan on the other hand, had given safe haven to the evil Taliban who aided and abetted terrorists and terrorism against America and Americans. Since the pullout by Obama’s military, the terrorists and the Taliban are back, busy plotting and carrying out terrorism against Americans and Afghanis who are friendly with Americans.
    -
    War is different and killings of enemies are justified and do not meet the legal standard of murder.
    -
    Peace, as we enjoy in the USA, and our government is not yet killing suspected “mole” terrorists, makes the cowardly bombing in Boston an act of Terror and Murder.

    The USA is not at war with Afghanistan. That would require a formal declaration of war by Congress.

    But even if we were, it would be considered a war crime to massacre innocent civilians.

    Notice the blatant double standard here: You use the actions of the (deposed) Afghan government to justify killings of some random Afghans who weren’t part of that government. Our own government has committed lots of crimes and acts of aggression around the world but no rational person would accept that as a justification for what happened in Boston.

    “Gored Birdbrain”, Obama, in his very first statement called it an act of terrorism. You need to get a hearing aid, a life, and a brain not contaminated by Ted Nugent’s rants.

    Gary, I did not say or imply that the US is “at war with Afghanistan”….President GW Bush gave their government time to oust the Taliban after the 9/11/01 attack on Americans, and if the Taliban had been ousted by the Afghan people, there would not have been a war by the US.
    -
    The US and the coalition forces defeated and ousted the Taliban and helped set up a secular government…which was then a partner in the war against the Terrorists.
    -
    When any “innocents” are killed in the pursuit of the terrorists, as with Obama’s drone forces, it is an unfortunate tragedy, but the terrorists are to be blamed for their deliberate hiding and mingling with non-terrorists. It is not a “war crime” and when has that not been common in war?
    -
    The USA is on the Defense, against aggressive and hidden ambushers. Not the usual type of warfare. Israel has had to cope with ambushers since 1948. It is not easy to defend against cowards who avoid uniforms and hide in mosques and homes and shops.

    ^dt: Bush and Cheney told the Afghan government- the Taliban at the time, to turn over Osama bin Laden, because they said the Taliban knew where he was. They didn’t have any better handle on him than Bush did, and after destroying their country, Bush/Cheney STILL never found bin Laden!! And, don’t give me any of that “****” that THEIR intelligence led to his “capture”, as they had it for seven years if their lies were true, and didn’t get the job done!

    As long as the attitude of “we can kill young couples at their weddings because of their corrupt government” is our official policy then we cannot expect respect.
    .
    Well what is different with their attitude of retaliation against the citizens of the “great Satan”
    .
    I love my country but the evils perpetuated in the Name of America garner hate from every corner of the world.
    .
    I sure don’t like our children killed by bombs, but for some reason other Americans find it OK to murder foreign children.
    .
    Evil begets evil.
