Boston Bombings: We Told You So

Published

Three days ago this website published a controversial post asserting that America’s global interventionism and steady erosion of liberty on the homefront made our nation less safe.

Addressing “neo-conservative” whores like U.S. Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham, we wrote “what these fiscally liberal, crony capitalist warmongers habitually fail to comprehend is that invading countries without a compelling national interest (and protecting another country isNOT a compelling national interest) isn’t making us safer. In fact, such a policy does nothing but fuel the fires of radical extremism and anti-Americanism – making us less safe.”

We even included a no-nonsense title – “This Is Why People Bomb Us” – which has since gone viral.

As usual, we were dead right.

From The Washington Post

The 19-year-old suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings has told interrogators that the American wars in Iraq and Afghanistan motivated him and his brother to carry out the attack, according to U.S. officials familiar with the interviews.

Meanwhile by way of debunking the borderline fascist suggestion that suspects in such cases should be treated as enemy combatants, the paper is reporting that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and his 26-year-old brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev (who died in a shootout with police last week) were not part of some organized terror plot.

Dzhokhar and his older brother … do not appear to have been directed by a foreign terrorist organization …

“These are persons operating inside the United States without a nexus” to an overseas group, a U.S. intelligence official said.

Hmmmm …

Here’s the thing, though …

No matter the Tsarnaevs’ reason was for perpetrating these attacks, there is never a justification for targeting civilians (including children) this way. Just as there is never a justification for shredding the constitution in seeking justice against those who commit such cowardly acts.
