The Worst of Times, The Best of Times


While the country is still reeling from yesterday’s terrorist attack in Boston, thoughts and prayers go out to those affected.  I have friends in Boston and fortunately they are OK.  But are they really?  Will any of us ever be “OK” again?  The perpetual War on Terror will never be over.  It’s the new “normal.”  And while there were horrific scenes yesterday there were amazing ones, too.  People who didn’t run away from the horror but who instinctively leapt into the chaos to help.  Like this:



OBAMA’S DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY – “NO ALERTS”  Gee – do I feel safer now?  Boston Bombings Morning Thread:  DHS Site Says ‘No Current Alerts’

Maybe Barry’s too busy dealing with….OOPS!  Must have been on the golf course.  No White House Envoy to Thatcher Funeral?  “…the Obama administration’s decision to skip sending an envoy to what has become a de facto state funeral for one of America’s staunchest Cold War allies came before the Boston terrorist attack yesterday, and that the White House had cited a “busy week” for the reason they couldn’t even spare Joe Biden for Margaret Thatcher’s funeral.”

Boston bombings – most comprehensive reporting.  As usual, we can learn more from The Daily Mail than our own lamestream media.  For example, pressure cooker bombs are frequently used in the Middle East.  From the website:

Boston marathon bombs were pressure cooker IEDs packed with ball-bearings: Devices that killed three, including eight-year-old boy waiting for his runner dad are used by terrorists in Afghanistan

  • Police sources: Two pressure-cooker bombs were packed with shards of metal, nails and ball bearings
  • Devices are frequently used in Afghanistan, India, Nepal and Pakistan, according to Homeland Security
  • An al-Qaeda magazine last year listed U.S. sporting events as one of ‘the most important enemy targets’
  • An eight-year-old boy and a 29-year-old woman were among the three killed in the attack
  • 176 people injured, at least 17 of them in critical condition and ‘a lot’ of amputations have been performed
  • Surgeons describe numerous severe injuries from ‘pellets, shrapnel or nails from inside the bombs’
  • Investigators do not know of motive for the bombs or who is behind them but are questioning ‘many people’
  • Obama vows to bring bombers to justice: ‘The American people will not be terrorized’

    Obama bows to Saudi Arab Muslim monarchs and Japanese Asiatic Shinto monarchs, but won’t send a delegation to Lady Thatcher’s funeral. As a Black Muslim of Arab descent, it would be inappropriate for him to do so. And that is what America elected.

  2. NEO says :

    It ends when they find out that irresistible force will be used with a will to victory, one that Lieutenant O’Brien would recognize, as would President Jefferson. We’ve been here before, we know the answer, Phil Sheridan taught us in the Shenandoah Valley, all that’s lacking is the will, to ignore the appeasers.
