This forum can be a scary place, 'cause we got lax rules: let's see your war face. Take a breath, and roll the dice, you might find out we're really nice.

I'm sorry, I think I've responded to the wrong quote. But right now, I just want to move on with the thread.

nearly 3000 people died in 9/11.

the IRA when bombing the UK would on occasion warn the police as to where the bombs were before setting them off so they could clear the area. those are the actions of a group not aiming to take life but to make a point through destruction of property. al qaeda were indiscriminate with what was destroyed.

When I did that aforementioned essay on terrorism the group I did it on was the IRA. As far as terrorists go they are definitely the nicer of the bunch.

also one of the most imitated. there's significant evidence to show that the british government placed their own bombs with the intent of vilifying the irish

He might've been referencing the fact that it's not just look through a scope and shoot steady. A target at any appreciable distance that needs a sniper rifle, when you're aimed correctly for the wind, temperature and other variables, your scope won't be anywhere near your target. If you looked through it you wouldn't seem them at all if you had it done right. In video games you just line up the crosshair and bang they're dead, but that's not the case in real life.

This'll die off as fast as Kony 2012, the Sandy Hook shooting, and the Dark Knight Rises shooting.

In what sense do you mean Zenaku? Should we obsess about it forever? Eventually the emotional reaction will fade sure, but it doesn't mean it dies off. If anything interest will last longer because of the investigation that has to go into it. Those shootings are also still figuring prominently into recent gun control efforts, and attempts at gun control have been pretty much nonexistent for a long time.

And bingo was his name-o.

I don't think this will fade into history, Zenaku. It'll remain a stark reminder, because this was a huge amount of destruction on a yearly, memorable event.

Even the Sandy Hook shooting will remain for quite a while, I imagine.

It's unbelievable with what's happening during the past few days; a bombing, poison letters, and a fertilizer plant explosion.

All I can say is wow, especially with the fertilizer plant explosion.

"One suspect in Monday’s Boston Marathon bombings has been captured, according to an official with knowledge of the investigation. Another remains on the loose in Watertown after a firefight with police.

Authorities have established a 20-block perimeter as they search for him. A scene of chaos descended on Cambridge and Watertown late Thursday night and early Friday morning, as police confirmed an MIT police officer was shot and killed, and an apparent carjacking led police on a wild chase into Watertown."

Oh MAN.

Can you believe that people are starting a "Truth" movement called FreeJahar (#FreeJahar on Twitter) that says Jahar is being set up by police and the US Gov't?

Nice. Thanks for that, America.

False flag everywhere. It's a conspiracy to take away our guns! Just like Newtown was! Those were all actors! And they also spray special chemicals out of planes (chemtrails) that are activated by the fluoride in tap water and make people more docile!


It only goes to show you that not all freedom is good. Some people should have their freedom to think limited, if they can't do it right.
