Now now, that may be going to far. Go climbing?! Haha! I want to hear about the self inflicted....... Must have been a ballistics test....power burns etc. That's an interesting new angle.

After 911's botched follow-ups of warnings from foreign governments, an Iranian jailed in London, and our own FBI agents, it's more than a little disheartening that this time we still screwed the pooch after such explicit warnings from the Russians over what will no doubt be 'cultural differences, long agency histories, and our somewhat schizophrenic stance on all things Chechnya.

I mean, just how much more explicit does the beta have to get before you can get the job done? It's a classic case of bureaucratic snafus that totally gives lie to all the conspiracy theories which all seem to rest on a hyper-competent government. It's simply not the case.

And people like Bob and Crankster live in a world where ripping legs off children is cool! Killing 8 year olds is acceptable.

What are you talking about, you idiot? I'm the one saying it only took authorities a few days to catch these creeps so everyone should chill out and be happy about that.

That article was interesting. Nice to know there's more of them.

I'd like to know how many of these Chechnyans there are in the U.S. and how he paid for the bomb. Was he living off a Government check? Did that buy the Pressure Cooker? Dunno how you keep a job spending time Boxing and in Russia.

I am not exactly sure where you are coming from Bluering but it certainly isn't from a clear grasp of reality.

I think that photo of the guy with a baseball cap on backwards, sunglasses, and what looks like a Middle Eastern goatee, and especially the t-shirt that says "Yer gonna die", that guy is shady. Waterboard him. He just might let out some secrets. ;-)

That mustache looks suspicious too.


As my old grand pappy said: "If you smell something funny, look to your mustache". Okay I think I stole that line from a Maverick episode.


Now that my thread drift is over, Miranda Rights, hmmm, needed but in this case?

Will the perp talk? My gut feeling is that his brother led him into this by the nose. Doesn't make him anymore innocent.

I have not read anything about the Weather Underground, so was probably way off, and just trolling for laughs.
But That time has long been gone, and can not be compared to the current stock of right wing terrorists, like TGeT implies.

But!!!!
The left only fight as a last resort to save Freedoms that are being stomped upon by the Right Wing Authoritarians.

I thought they were fighting against the Vietnam war, massacres of hippies and civil rights being attacted, which would be a justifiable fight for the time. I could be wrong though.

ohhwwwguddy,, more LEFT/RIGHT/LEFT/RIGHT...(jeeeeesers)


Im reasonably sure the bombers didnt care what political affiliation their victims were. To them, ANYONE who pays taxes here is an enemy/infidel..

And perp B is now talking via a paper and pencil..








edit: To Coz,, Yes i agree in many ways about the rights- but im also torn as those rights extend to citizens.. What IS a citizen?
There has been a TON of talk of modification to the constitution over gun rights, yet not one about citizenship. Is it time to have "classifications" of citizenship? Many will say HELL NO, and to much of that i agree. We hold that value dearly.. But those values are also clearly being used against us. Answers often aren't easy ones it seems.

DR.F,

The 3 dead were their own members. It's an easy characterization to call what happened an accident by their own hand, I call it murder. It was really just luck they didn't kill some one randomly while trying to overthrow the US government.

3 more people died during a bank robbery in 1981 but that was caused by "former" members.

of course the right wingers want to distance themselves as far as they can from the deeds of other ringers wingers
That's why they use projection so often, and get defensive everytime someone brings the topic up

Howdy Ron, you go on about your Choctaw heritage. Does that mean that you are 100% Choctaw?

Or is it a case of some European settler messing with a Choctaw woman. I admit, in my case the 1/16th Cherokee (documented, certified... like I am certifiable, just in another way, hah hah), most likely was a result of my ancestor messing with a Cherokee woman. The Sawyers came to America in 1640, plenty of time for screwing around, so to speak.

My point is, you do come across very, I don't like using the word racist, because we are all one race, homo sapiens, but very bigoted. Perhaps you are not a bigot. I don't know, but your discourse would make me think so.

Well that is said about purt near anyone with an opinion these days Patrick..

As for my heritage im 1/8 choctaw. But i have life long friends that are Piaute, Washoe and Shoshone..I decided long ago that their "religion" and ways suited me better than the more modern beliefs and "systems". And i dont understand your inference completely. Am i supposed to be less proud of my heritage if its in the minor bracket?


On this forum, youve seen me criticize ONLY criminal gang members and RADICAL islamists.. But that is extrapolated time and time again. Both of the aforementioned are a critical danger these days -here.

Choctaws have been living in Oklahoma since the late 1800's when they were all shipped here. I live in the Chickasaw Nation, and growing up it was a big plus if you were Indian. Everyone thought it was cool.

There are very few pure blood Chickasaw's left, but there are a ton of people who have Chickasaw blood. In Oklahoma there is basically no racism towards Indians (my Pawnee attorney said they prefer the word Indian to Native American).

It is the same with all of the "five civilized tribes." That is what they are called. Choctaw, Chickasaw, Seminole, Cherokee, and Creek. I had a great grandmother who was Creek.

One of my best friends is full blood half Otoe and half Pawnee. When he goes to the sundance and tells them he is Pawnee, all of the other tribes kind of give him the look.
