Bearded Savages bomb Boston Marathon

UPDATE:  Washington Post report that the Saudi picked up earlier is not a suspect.  Title therefore amended

Looks bad, The Boston Globe has put video up of the first explosion

Update:  Looks like two people dead and a third explosion also reports of  unexploded devices.  Sounds like Jihad to me

Just seen a report on the Commentator blog of an explosion during the Boston Marathon.

The Commentator said:

“Many people have reportedly been injured after two explosions at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. The blasts occurred on Boyleston Street hours after the top runners had finished the race, but with thousands of marathoners still running the route.

The first blast was quickly followed by a second.

Race officials have locked down the hotel and bloody spectators were being carried to the medical tent that had been set up to care for tired runners.”

It looks like a Saudi national is being identified as the perpetrator and is suffering from shrapnel wounds.
This certainly has all the hallmarks of someone suffering from Sudden Jihad Syndrome.

    It’s a sad day in Boston. Our news agencies in the States is reporting that “authorities are guarding a ‘person of interest’ in hospital with severe burns” The New York Post claims a ‘Saudi National’ ID’d.

      A terrible day. I’ve seen the same stories of the Saudi national being a person of interest. Although the Left will try to make this out to be some sort of ‘right wing’ attack, this certainly looks like the modus operandi of jihadists. Please accept condolencies from myself on this day when the people of Boston have been subjected to such a terrible crime.

  2. Been watching the news since this horrible event happened. The casusalty total keeps going up. So far 2 dead, one being an 8 year old boy and 130 injured; some of the injured are children. There are some in our government and press that still are not willing to call it this cowardly deed an act of terrorism. A sad day indeed.

      From what I can gather from the media here in the UK is that the bombs were placed in such a way as to do maximum damage to the spectators and may have been placed in post boxes. The UK media has gone very quiet on the issue of the ‘person of interest in the hospital’ and one US police source has denied that he New York Post story about the arrested Saudi. Although things are still confused this attack with the double bombs and the use of ball bearings in the explosive device reminds me very much of the Jihadist attack on the London Underground and the bus in Tavistock Square. Although the ‘tin foil hatters’ (conspiracy theorists) such as Alex Jones are starting to come out of the woodwork and stirring the pot, I think that this will turn out to be an Islamic attack.

      Of course it’s terrorism to say anything else is cowardice.

  3. This is the attitude here in the States. Comment from a friend of mine. “I know one thing they fecked with the wrong city, Boston as a city has an attitude that makes New Yorkers seem like shrinking violets. And I think this is an appropriate time for this Drop Kick Murphy’s song, from the sons of Boston, read the lyrics pretty appropriate.”

    The Irish blood runs strong in Boston!

  4. Lastest update on Boston bombing: Source close to the investigation tells Fox News that ‘pressure cookers were used’ in both bombs — possibly as timers — that exploded yesterday at the Boston Marathon finish line, killing 3 and wounding 176. Another source says the style of device closely resembles that commonly seen in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

      Thank you for that. This tragedy is looking more and more like an Islamic outrage, especially with that piece of information.
