I've woke up in the last 20 minutes to be met by this sad and tragic news. From reading the posts above it's fairly clear we don't know who is responsible. We can all guess and have a pretty good idea, but lets wait and see.
It seems that over 100 are in hospitals across Boston with lower leg injuries, some needing amputation, shrapnel, ruptured ear drums etc. Two fatalities currently, one being an 8 year old little boy... so heartbreakingly sad.
It seems the two explosions were meant to go off after the elite runners had completed the course. Currently, spokesmen for the Boston police, and all official offices are saying, at present they do not know if it is a case of internal or international terrorism. The also state that they have recovered 2 undetonated devices - which should greatly help in find who committed this crime. It also has been confirmed that the "explosion" at the JFK Library was actually an electrical fire and is not being connected to the two explosions.
Since my last post on this subject, I have been thinking. Obviously as no one has claimed responsibility for this crime, we can only guess who did it and where they came from. As already reported, at present we do not know if it is a case of internal terrorism or international, but these are my thoughts.... let me put them forward to you to consider.
The explosions were set to go off well after the elite athletes would of finished.
A large number of these elite athletes who do the world marathon tour are black Africans and a good majority of those would probably be muslim.
Islamic terrorists would not want to murder or maim "their own".
No, "they" wanted to kill / maim the fun runners, the charity runners... christians and no muslims in the 27k entrants and bystanders.
I may be wrong, and if so I apologise, but my feelings are towards islamists and their supporters.
