    Terrorist like this are men. Angry white men. Guaranteed.

    Isn’t it ironic to think that man might determine his own future by something so seemingly trivial as the choice of an insect spray. ~ Rachel Carson, Silent Spring ~

    •  Hmmm... not even a bit of color? (0+ / 0-)

      Seems to me I've heard about 19 men, many of whom were of a medium skin color, who caused quite a lot of damage in NYC, DC, and PA a few years back.

      Fight them to the end, until the children of the poor eat better than the dogs of the rich.

      Gudrun Ensslin? Leila Khaled? Kim Hyon Hui (under orders from Pyongyang, she blew up 115 airline passengers in 1985)?

      Women, not all of them white, do indeed commit such atrocities.

      The Rote Armee Fraktion (RAF) had approx. 50% women members and approx 80 women supporters according to author Eileen MacDonald in her book Shoot the Women First (New York: Random House. ISBN 0-679-41596-3), which attempts to dispel stereotypical myths and male fantasies about such women.  She interviews 'members of the Basque separatist movement, the Italian Red Brigades, the Palestine Liberation Organization, the Irish Republican Army and the German Red Army Faction.'  An editorial review from Publishers Weekly stated

      She is very definite, however, in her belief that women revolutionaries have "much stronger characters, more power, more energy" and are "far more pragmatic" than their male counterparts.
      This is all speculation about Boston anyway until there is more info.  Nevertheless, it's a healthy way for people to vent their rage

      Don't be a dick, be a Democrat! Oppose CPI cuts! Support Social Security and Veteran Benefits!
