There Are No Words To Describe What You’re About To See

 

Published on Apr 27, 2013

” There are no words to describe what you’re about to see.

A Son asked his father, “Dad, will you take part in a marathon with me?” The father who, despite having a heart condition, says “Yes”. They went on to complete the marathon together. Father and son went on to join other marathons. The father always saying “Yes” to his son’s request of going through the race together. One day, the son asked his fater, “Dad, let’s join the Ironman together.”

To which, his father said “Yes”.

For those who don’t know, Ironman is the toughest triathlon ever. The race encompasses three endurance events of a 2.4 mile (3.86 kilometer) ocean swim, followed by a 112 mile (180.2 kilometer) bike ride and ending with a 26.2 mile (42.195 kilometer) marathon along the coast of the Big Island.

Father and son went on to complete the race together! “

Emergencies Bring Out The Best In Citizens And First Responders, Worst In First Reactors

 

 

 

 

” This nation’s character has been severely tested this week. So has the character of many of our leading lights and talking heads. Emergencies this week have consistently brought out the best in ordinary Americans and first responders. The same cannot be said for the media or the “first reactors.” 

Hat tip to the Daily Caller for catching that headline. It has been a shameful week in media and social media. David Sirota infamously wanted the Boston terrorists to turn out to be white, for the politics, and got his wish — sort of. They’re white, but also Chechen and Muslim, and naturalized citizens.

If there’s a lesson to be learned from this week, it’s that if there’s an emergency, rely on the burly, decisive ones around you and not those chattering about themselves in the peanut gallery, trying to score political points off it all. The first will give their life for you without hesitation. The second will watch you die and then turn your corpse into a political pinata, also without hesitation.”

Father of Lone Terrorist Threatens To Unleash Hell On USA If Son Is Touched

 

Anzor__Tsarnaev

 

 

“If they killed him, then all hell would break loose.”

That’s what Anzor Tsarnaev, the father of Boston bomber Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, told ABC news.

In another conversation with the Associated Press, Anzor Tsarnaev added that his son was a, “true angel.”

Yeah Anzor, not so much.

While you can’t help but sympathize with any parent who finds out that his child has gone this far wrong, the reality is that his son murdered people and crippled others for life. There are other people who lost children, too. There are sons whose fathers will be crippled for life. There are mothers whose daughters are missing legs. There are parents who will never see their sons again because Anzor Tsarnaev’s son killed them.

Yet, he’s claiming that “all hell would break loose” if something happened to his son.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Terror in Boston: The Press Must Stop Blaming America

” The mainstream media and their friends wasted no time blaming tax protesters, small government and the Republican Party for the terror attack at the Boston Marathon. Why must the press politicalize everything in this country? Hear more on this Trifecta.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Authorities Believe They Have Identified A Suspect

 

 

 

” Investigators believe they have identified a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings, a source who has been briefed on the investigation told CNN’s John King exclusively.

The breakthrough came from analysis of video from a department store near the site of the second explosion. Video from a Boston television station also contributed to the progress, said the source, who declined to be more specific but called it a significant development.

Earlier, a federal law enforcement source with firsthand knowledge of the investigation told CNN that a lid to a pressure cooker thought to have been used in the bombings had been found on a roof of a building near the scene.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

FROM RACE TO TRAGEDY IN SECONDS: THE TIME-LAPSE VIDEO OF THE BOSTON MARATHON FINISH LINE THAT CAPTURES SO MUCH

 

 

” CBSBoston had a web camera stationed at the finish line of Boston Marathon Monday, capturing footage from just after noon through the explosion and into the evening.

The station has released the time-lapse video from the web cam. At first, it shows racers victoriously crossing the finish line after running 26.2 miles. Then, 15 seconds into the footage, the explosion that killed three and injured more than 170 people hits.”

Al Qaeda Link Probed

 

 

 

 

” Law enforcement and intelligence authorities investigating the Boston terror bombings suspect al Qaeda terrorists were behind the blasts that killed three and injured scores although so far there is no firm evidence.

Asked if al Qaeda was behind the attack, a U.S. government spokesman said it was too soon to tell.

However, initial reports indicate the bombs were fashioned from pressure cookers and designed to avoid detection by bomb-sniffing dogs. Investigators believe the devices were delivered in duffle bags and are now searching surveillance video of Boston for clues. An al Qaeda magazine in 2010 directed terrorists to use kitchen materials to make bombs, including pressure cooking bombs, for killing “tens” of people.

The bombs contained metal pieces designed to increase their lethality.

The official said the use of a pressure cooker bomb device also is an indication that more than one person was involved in the attacks.

A review of recent jihadist web postings show that several al Qaeda affiliated terrorists stated attacks on U.S. soil were coming.

For example, an al Qaeda weapons specialist, Abdallah Dhu-al-Bajadin, wrote in an online jihadist website last month that al Qaeda remains capable of conducting spectacular attacks against the United States. He dismissed U.S. intelligence assertions that al Qaeda is in decline.”

Less Than Four Hours After Boston Bombings, There’s A Theory For Whatever You Want

 

 

 

 

 

” It could be Al-Qaeda, via the Dallas Morning News:

A trademark of al-Qaeda and its affiliates is to launch attacks in ways that are highly photogenic, guaranteed to inflict maximum casualties and, most important, generate maximum television coverage. Something like 27,000 people run in the Boston Marathon, and thousands more gather along the route, with heavy concentrations at the finish line. The fact that multiple explosives have been found near the Boston Marathon site suggests another trademark of al-Qaeda, which has a preference for attacks in multiple stages, or multiple bombs set to go off all at once in a big blast.

Don’t blame Al-Qaeda first, blame right wing extremists, via Esquire:

It could’ve been some kind of inside job, via Foreign Policy:

2013, when all the news can fit your views.

The National Journal provides advice that shouldn’t be necessary to reporters, observers and even police (see: JFK electric fire), but sadly is: it’s too early to jump to conclusions.
