Nice! Get them or not get them, there are plenty more, homegrown and foreign. There are no foolproof solutions for terrorism.
The perpetrators don't care about being killed or punished, only about their mission, to cause chaos, kill and destroy. It's a different world. Americans aren't used to this type of event that is an every day event in other parts of the world.

I can't stand it.
Killed by Obama's buddies, who recognize that the US is now weak and apologetic.

Meanwhile, Obama continues to murder US troops in a meaningless "war" in Afghanistan.

In the wake of the Boston Marathon terror attack, the punditocracy seems dumbstruck. We have come to expect after these things some good indications about perpetrators: old style terrorists would advertise their actions, and in the major recent cases,— 9/11, London subway, Norway — the killers were discovered quickly. As of this writing we the general public don’t seem to know much.

I agree with Charles Krauthammer that this has an Al Qaeda feel to it, the urban setting, the quest for dramatic photographs. But we don’t know yet. A smaller probability seems to me a right wing domestic terrorist, perhaps on the Breivik model. Smaller still, Shi’ite (Iran sponsored) terror, or some some kind of false flag operation designed to implicate Iran and jumpstart an American-Iran war. But I’m no insider, I just read the blogs and the papers.

Eleven plus years ago, my wife called me from Wall Street to tell me she was okay. Okay about what I wondered. She explained. That afternoon I wrote a blog post for Justin Raimondo’s antiwar.com , saying that Mideast resentment of US policy towards Israel and Palestine was at an all time high, and unless we did something about it, we could expect a lot more of same. David Frum, in an essay attacking antiwar conservatives, wondered whether it was Robert Novak or I who “blamed” Israel first. I think it was pretty much a tie.

At the time, in several subsequent pieces, I would argue that the best way for the United States to protect its own freedoms would be to have as little as possible to do with the Mideast– to cut loose our allies, limit immigration. Trade with that part of the world, but otherwise have as little as possible to do with it. We would of course have to punish the folks who did this to us, but after that, bye bye.

No one took this advice. Instead, we (the United States) have since 9/11 killed, wounded, droned, imprisoned, tortured, made refugees of millions of Muslims. We have fought the endless war, the forever war. Electing Obama barely changed the situation. Whether this has made us any more secure is highly doubtful, but it surely has created more enemies than friends.

To be continued, obviously, when we know more about who perpetrated the Boston atrocity.

Yeah, they should have asked Obama's daughter, Sapphire or Taneesha, or whatever her name is.

You've got it all wrong; the Saudis are the Bush's friends, remember how he allowed them to all round up and leave the country after 9-11? The Bush's were in business with the Bin Ladens, never bothered you eh?

<quoted text> Yea, & this act of terror is a manifestation of said hysteria. People have been truly on edge for a good while now. You can see it on show it's ugly face on this thread everyday bro. It's the division of America that should worry folks more than what happened yesterday. We have people on this thread pointing fingers at political parties as the culprit already,! The professionals still haven't a clue as to who is responsible. Crazy!
The "professionals" at the federal level are now political operatives and will only arrest politically incorrect suspects.

<quoted text> He led us out of Bush's recession, out of Iraq, through the deaths of the top 10 Al Qaeda leaders, into Pakistan to get Bin Laden, stock markets breaking records, equal rights for woman in the work place as far as pay, universal healthcare, & plenty more. All with republican obstruction from day 1 of his presidency. Let me guess, you voted for Romney huh! Give NE list of Bush's accomplishments. There are none!
The recession was shared bipartisan neglect heeding Bush's warnings of the impending housing market collapse in the years leading up to it. The Democrats neglected to heed those warnings more than Republicans.

So, technically, it was the Democrats' recession.

The War in Iraq was over before Obama ran for presidency. The timeline to withdraw was already agreed upon before he even took office. Removing the remaining stabilizing troops in Iraq too soon according to an Iraqi general is irresponsible. It could undo everything that has been done. Obama's going to do it anyway.

There have been laws on the books for a long time protecting women in the workplace. Nothing has changed just because you bought into the hype.

Obstruction is in the eye of the beholder. Both sides have to be willing to give and take. It's always been Obama's way or the highway. Harry Reid is like a big wall in the Senate refusing to bring budget proposals passed by the House up for a vote when the Senate hasn't even passed a budget in three years.

Your perspective is from the wrong angle.
