Terror Attacks Boston
Two bombs struck near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday, turning a celebration into a bloody scene of destruction. Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis said Monday night that the death toll had risen to three. Scores were injured at the scene. One of the dead was an 8-year-old boy, according to a state law enforcement source.
Hospitals reported at least 144 people are being treated, with at least 17 of them in critical condition and 25 in serious condition. At least eight of the patients are children. At least 10 people injured had limbs amputated, according to a terrorism expert briefed on the investigation. Several of the patients treated at Massachusetts General Hospital suffered injuries to lower limbs that will require “serial operations” in the coming days, trauma surgeon Peter Fagenholz said Monday night. Some injuries were so severe amputations were necessary, Fagenholz added.
Terror Attacks Boston
In Washington, President Barack Obama vowed, “Any responsible individuals, any responsible groups, will feel the full weight of justice.” Boston “is a tough and resilient town,” he said, adding that Americans will stand by Bostonians “every single step of the way.” The terrorist attack, near the marathon’s finish line, triggered widespread screaming and chaos, shattered windows and barricades and sent smoke billowing into the air at Copley Square. The blasts were about 50 to 100 yards apart, officials said, on a stretch of the marathon course lined with spectators cheering runners through the final yards of a 26-mile, 385-yard endurance feat.
“It felt like a huge cannon,” a witness told CNN about one of theblasts. Allan Panter, a doctor who was near the finish line waiting for his wife to finish the race, told CNN he was standing about 20 to 25 feet from the first blast. He said he treated victims on the street after the explosion. “I saw at least six to seven people down next to me,” he said. “They protected me from the blast. One lady expired. One gentleman lost both his (lower) limbs. Most of the injuries were lower extremities.” (CNN)
Who is behind the Boston Terror Attacks ?
U.S. President Barack Obama was also unwilling to speak about who is suspected to be behind the attacks. He also did not answer questions about whether the event would be considered an act of terrorism. “We don’t know who did this or why. And people shouldn’t jump to conclusions before we have all the facts,” Obama said. “But make no mistake, we will get to the bottom of this. And we will find out who did this, we’ll find out why they did this. Any responsible individuals, any responsible groups will feel the full weight of justice.”
Terrorism experts believe that an organization or someone with extensive knowledge of bomb construction was likely behind the attack. “This is the kind of attack that is calculated or linked to an event,” said Bruce Hoffman, director, Center for Peace and Security Studies at Georgetown University, in a Discovery News report. “That means whoever did it wants attention. There will be some kind of claim of who is behind it.”
Until the Boston police commissioner or U.S. President confirm the person or people behind the Boston terrorist attacks that took place at the 2013 Boston Marathon, it’s unreasonable to assume that any specific person or entity is responsible for the attacks. Images such as this one have surfaced across social media sites indicating that a person was on the roof a building near the first explosion. Authorities have not confirmed the detainment of any suspects and have made very few comments about who they believe were behind the attacks. We’ll keep you posted as more information becomes available. (IdigitalTimes)
AL-QAEDA – TALIBAN – N.KOREA – IRAN – PAKISTAN – SYRIA – MUSLIMS or ISRAEL (MOSSAD)
Ten years have passed since the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center. There are still a lot of fundamentalists out there who want to bring Americans to their knees and force the United States to change its foreign policy. To impose their demands, terrorists are willing to blow themselves up and kill as many people as possible. It would not be surprising that N.Korea is behind the attack. Even the Mossad is possible … Israel needs U.S. help to attack Iran … We will follow the news and keep you posted !
