Explosion at Boston Marathon *NSFW IMAGES*

If North Korea is behind it, Pyongyang will be on fire by the end of the week. Not likely though.

Because that's even remotely likely, right? :/

It's not NK. If NK were to do anything to us, it would be on a grander scale. Kin Jong Un wants to look big and heroic, not wimpy.

NBC has video of the explosion. :o

Disturbing to say the least.

To anyone now who thinks this was just a gas pipe I now believe you are wrong and it was indeed a bombing.

I've seen a gas explosion. There's a LOT more "flash" than the video shows in this one. Real bombs don't have much flash in them; that's hollywood fakery using gasoline etc.

I'd lay good odds this was a terrorist attack; but as to whether it was an organised group or a lone bomber, who knows?

That's incredibly sad. We take life for granted. Tomorrow isn't promised.

Looks like a war zone.

That's really not the answer. Yes it's a horrific crime but seeking retribution is against the best interests of society - it is far better to find, arrest, prosecute and convict such people, rather that stooping to their level.

Seeking retribution is what caused the Iraq war. We've had enough of that sort of thing.

It strikes me as an unusual event to target.

Not for cyclists

Yeah, AP, Breaking News, and FOX have all sent out alerts saying more devices have been found and are being dismantled.

Today is the 100th anniversary of the birth of Kim Il Sung, NK's first Dear Leader.

Just sayin'.

My money's on Al Qaeda or domestic sympathizers. Or domestic nut cases. NK is nuts, but they generally threaten annihilation for world attention and negotiation power. Could be anyone though. After we take care of the injured and bury the dead, we'll get 'em.

The device description closely match claymores, except these weren't mines, which groups use those?

Also I am saddened by this event, my thoughts are with the victims and their families.

Don't trust ANY news reports yet. We all know what the US news media is like. They'll post ANY rumour they hear as "fact", and worry about complaints later on.
