    Absolutely shocking... especially for me, who take part in running events often.
    Pictures always should have a special story behind it or a special meaning to the photographer.

    my oracle called MNI says "Gold has no bottom"
    Source: MNI.
    GOLD: Price continues to fall but off the initial $1,321.95 low, now down $3.21 at $1,344.74 per ounce. "At current prices, there are no clear signs of gold bottoming prices bottom, whether on the daily chart or hourly chart," say analysts at Phillip Futures. "Hence, we prefer to look out for key support levels to come. We put the next support level at $1310, breaking which the next level is likely found at $1260."

    Stock market should "freeze" trading when there is big impact event like this. Now, who is laughing to the bank now - the one who have planned this.

    i am wondering how many ppl shorted airlines right before 911. I wonder if any terrorist groups had done that (shorting airlines) also.
    Not a really ethical way to make money.

    I know of a NTU lecturer bought 200 lots of SIA shares when it crashed below $8 during the 911. He even asked his students to buy the shares. After the incident, SIA's share price slowly crawled back to $14-15. He made at least $1.4m.

    CNA said it could be domestic terrorism:
    1. Happened on Patriot's Day - the day the American Revolutionary war started
    2. Also happens to be the last day to file taxes

    could be done by some extreme right-wing group to protest income tax.

    i'm talking about insinuating that it's a conspiracy theory, that its sole purpose was for people to make money out of a tragedy

    FBI in charge - internally within USA this means they treat it as possible terrorism. Otherwise Boston Police Dept would be in charge.
    Obama careful not to say it is terrorism, yet on television. Because Republicans made a super big fuss over what Susan Rice said or did not say after the US ambassador was killed in Libya.

    It will affect how future marathons in US and other countries will be organised.

    The bombing is a bad thing to do, and culprits would face justice later. So far 3 have been reported killed and others badly injured.

    Two small bombs went off and this time the US civilians are on the receiving end. The terrorist act is bad and not acceptable, of course.




    But take a step back and keep it in perspective.



    Quote from Secret War in Laos. (Laos was not a combatant country. It was not involved in the Vietnam War.)

    From 1964 to 1973, the U.S. dropped more than two million tons of ordnance on Laos during 580,000 bombing missions—equal to a planeload of bombs every 8 minutes, 24-hours a day, for 9 years –............

    Up to a third of the bombs dropped did not explode, leaving Laos contaminated with vast quantities of unexploded ordnance (UXO). Over 20,000 people have been killed or injured by UXO in Laos since the bombing ceased.........

    Over 270 million cluster bombs were dropped on Laos during the Vietnam War (210 million more bombs than were dropped on Iraq in 1991, 1998 and 2006 combined); up to 80 million did not detonate.
    It is not known how many hundred thousand Laotian civilians (just hill tribe farmers) were killed, because no records were kept.

    The US news channels CNN and Fox News have non-stop news coverage on this.

    so you're saying that we should turn a blind eye to them, because of what they did in the Vietnam War?
