Is it me or am I the only person who has noticed that to yahoos from Chechnya got our own govt to lock down 1 million people like cowering rats in cages, striped of every conceivable civil liberty guaranteed under the constitution? Further more humiliating and defeating the most powerful nation with the most enormous weapons arsenal using nothing more in comparison than spit and tooth picks. Truly the worst day ever in American history, worse than 9/11 Bin Laden would be proud. Are we really such a nation of cowards who would allow ourselves to locked in our homes like cowering rats hiding from a cat. I guess so. Now that they have caught the second suspect I guess we win. We sure showed the world what we are made of.

The notes of an observing future terrorist: Make a several small diversionary bombs and set them all off simultaneously to spread the police force thin. Preferably at dead end locations to get them all confined with no route of escape. Have two or three terror buddies at each site and pick the police off one by one, mean while all remaining police will lock down any possible civilians from getting in the way or taking the law into their own hands. Move to areas that have no law enforcement and collect hostages killing women and children indiscriminately to maximize the full terror effect. Hold for several days, kill one every hour or so, again to maximize the full terror effect. Negotiate release demands to give false sense of hope and then kill all hostages. Wait for police to come rushing in and then detonate suicide bombs. Repeat as necessary until Americans bow at knees.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%

You're an idiot. A bomb wielding terrorist who has already stolen one vehicle is on the loose. What would you have done?

Besides they lifted the lockdown before they caught him anyway.

Ok, since you two are master strategist. How do you catch a man who's armed and proven that he has no problems with blowing up random civilians?

Use Boston SWAT, that's their job.
Don't need to mobilize a small national guard and ATF army, complete with dozens of armored humvees.

Yeah because 2 dead and a couple hundred wounded is totally worse then 3000 dead, airplanes turned into missiles, buildings collapsing, etc. (Sarcasm)

You really are senile you know that?

Im getting a lot of bitter old man opinion over here rather then anything useful...

Sounds easy enough (also sarcasm)

Wait for police to come rushing in and then detonate suicide bombs. Repeat as necessary until Americans bow at knees.

Which wont happen in a billion years... Every month or so someone in the US snaps and tries to bring down the whole system because they think they have it all planned out. This time it was two idiots from Russia, last time it was whats his nam in LA, Dorner or whatever. All of these people eventually fail and dont even come close to 'getting america to bow at the knees', and to think they could is retarded of you to believe.

No he was killed, I assume, I don't remember exactly I didn't pay too much attention. It's funny how that story, if it only makes the front page of your local newspaper, doesn't leave any lasting impressionism on you. But it was through the middle of my town, guns a blazing.

That's a good point. Why do you think people care more about the Boston bombing than the one in your hometown?

It's the news, if it's national news, it's more important. People don't take it upon themselves to scale the events rationally, they take whats given to them at face value.

Right, the event was a 1000 times greater in magnitude, I agree. The point is that the event in Boston got a response many times greater than was appropriate.

No, but you could always become a police officer if it bothers you that much.

It doesn't have to bother me enough to become a police officer for me to point out the over reaction.
Though I have though of that, it seems that people take criticism much more seriously if you were ever a part of the group you're criticizing, the police, the military etc. But I can't bring myself to engage in any of those just to have better resume to criticize ha

Besides they lifted the lockdown before they caught him anyway.


"A bomb wielding terrorist who has already stolen one vehicle is on the loose."

How is this diffent than a typical day in Chicago?

Oh! Because gang violence is one thing and terrorism is another.

I'm sure the folks in Chicago are plenty terrorized, on a daily basis.

Of course they are. By gang violence. What's out there? Latin Kings? Gangsta disciples? Vice Lords? I'm doing my part. What are you doing about?

? I carry gun, what else can you do? The point is that in Chicago the terrorized don't seem to warrant a small army.

No, but you could always become a police officer if it bothers you that much.

It doesn't have to bother me enough to become a police officer for me to point out the over reaction.
Though I have though of that, it seems that people take criticism much more seriously if you were ever a part of the group you're criticizing, the police, the military etc. But I can't bring myself to engage in any of those just to have better resume to criticize ha

If they did overreact and I'm not saying they did or didn't, I don't know what call I would have made in the same situation( the armored trucks were a bit much if I'm being honest) nothing bad came of it. And if you don't want to be a cop that's fine. I'm not trying to say your opinion means less.

Right, the event was a 1000 times greater in magnitude, I agree. The point is that the event in Boston got a response many times greater than was appropriate.

Well duh, I can agree with that

I could be wrong, but I think that's all the op is asserting. That we allowed ourselves to be terrorized more than we should have, despite rhetoric to the contrary.

But come on Worst Day in American history? Worse than 9/11, pearl harbor, or the day GTA V was delayed? I mean...it would be out this month damn it!

Ya the title is clearly over the top.
Obviously the worst day was me getting my wisdom teeth pulled, as I learned later the old orthodontist I went to was, and I quote 'getting pretty rough there towards the end' I was his last patient before retirement.

Damn. Why do people even get their wisdom teeth pulled? I still have mine I think.
