Skip to comments.Lessons of Boston: What the fanatics took away

The superb work of our law-enforcement officials in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombing ignited a blaze of self-congratulation that obscured the events implications.
Yeah, we killed one fanatic and nabbed the other. But our dysfunctional system couldnt prevent this latest Boston Massacre.
That carnage was a dirt-cheap terrorist triumph. Fanatics will take its lessons to their shriveled jihadi hearts:
Lesson No. 1: Two amateur terrorists can paralyze a major American city for days. The Tsarnaev punks generated global headlines, ran up millions in government expenses, punished a major metro-area economy and disrupted society. And now weve got a costly civilian trial to come for the surviving brother with more headlines to inspire copycats.
Were relieved that the two young terrorists were brought to justice and delude ourselves that we won. Uh-uh. At the cost of two expendable young thugs, a few guns and a couple of homemade bombs, radical Islam generated a bloodbath that created genuine terror on our soil.
Al Qaeda and its ilk have long used suicide bombers and doomed assassins to rupture societies in the Middle East, killing tens of thousands of Muslims (a fact we fail to exploit in our lame information campaigns). Now the Islamists are in the export business. Expect more of these low-cost, high-return missions within our borders.
Lesson No. 2: The best weapons against targets in the US are disaffected legal immigrants or radicalized native-born converts to jihad.....

This is the big takeaway. America will rue the response of authorities when they shut down the city.
Recognize that Islam is not a religion and then prohibit it. And it is most assuredly not a religion.
Join my religion or I will kill you. Leave the religion and I will kill you.
These are hallmarks of a cult.
As Dad said, “the terrorists have won.”
I am surprised terrorists aren’t more active in this relatively free society. I shudder to think about copycat Breslans and other mass killings that might occur...especially since many refuse to see the moozlums for who they really are. The question to answer: would I allow a moozlum to babysit my children?
Our country is becoming increasingly militarized, the authorities more belligerent towards common citizens; while almost any kind of evidence that you the bomber are a specific threat can surface yet the authorities will bend over backwards to avoid giving even the impression of depriving you of any right you could be deemed to have, allowing you to go ahead & kill above mention common citizens.
The DC Snipers should’ve taught us that years ago.
They have a 1,300 year head start and control many countries.
Two terrorists, fully willing to die, spent $2-4k on a bombing. The direct response and aftermath will cost $500 million if it costs one dollar. Quite a return on investment -barring the personal toll.
Image two komakaze pilots took off in two zero fighters during World War 2 and destroyed the entire US Pacific Fleet? A out the same returning investment. Would you label that unsuccessful? Would you label them losers? I think not.
How long do we sustain that and have any remence freedom?
No more PC bullshit.
The DC snipers proved this years ago.
The only thing that could quickly stop this sort of thing is a well armed and well-trained populace, something all these msm pundits are loathe to recognize.
The terrorists are in charge. Those pressure cooker freelancers? A bunch of amateurs.
Correction on my last — I wouldn’t group Ralph Peters in the normal msm, but my point definitely applies to most pundits.
I bet if we were to go over there and nuke a major city using spec-ops in undercover fashion the Muzzies might rethink coming over here and terrorizing us but then again that would open up a whole new can(s) of worms
5. Terrorists are no longer expected to perform huge difficult acts of terror such as bringing down airplanes or skyscrapers to have a maximum impact.
Smaller explosives such as pipe bombs or cooker pressure bombs will create the same and more hysteria than earlier years.
“I shudder to think about copycat Breslans and other mass killings that might occur...”
A Beslan-type terrorist attack on American soil is what I fear the most. We are in no way prepared for that. The insane no-gun zones in schools make them the perfect terrorist target.
I normally don’t do this, but people need to wake up and see what we dealing with.
WARNING! Graphic and disturbing images of dead children. This is what the muslim monsters are capable of:
(Please let me be wrong) Next step: simultaneous attacks on sporting events, high school or college.
Agreed. Boston/Massachusetts just guaranteed this is going to happen again somewhere else.
"Endeavour to persevere".
That kind of chit is going to get people to start shooting back.
The two who shut down Boston were not the Tsarnaevs, but Patrick and Menino. They are worse than amateur terrorists; they are professional politicians, and pose a much more direct and imminent threat to our way of life than a couple of crockpot wielding muzzies.
How can there ever be total victory over man's inhumanity to man as long as man rules this orb? We can only be satisfied with small wins over evil, we are incapable of ending it.
Lost me right there. What was "superb" about any of the law enforcement activities?
I guess he was being polite.
no dogs were shot...
That we know of.
And the cops were able to keep the Dunkin Donuts open during the lockdown, so they got that going for them.
If we still had a GOP instead of a RINO party, they would scream from every roof top about that. But no, as usual the RINOs will cower into a fetal position while the Treason party lets even more of these mutts into the country. A few years ago I drove a taxi in New York city in between jobs, and it is absolutely mind boggling the amount of potential jihadists driving cabs. I would talk to them everyday while waiting for a cab, everything is the fault of the Jews, America is the great killer. Saying all this crap while wearing full Islamic garb. How the F did they get into the country?
