Hang on a minute there. How are we supposed to jump to conclusions and indulge in baseless speculation if you're going to around asking senisble questions like this!
What are you? One those rationalists?


Sorry. Keep in mind that I'm European, and as such do not know the terror of terrorist or how they are behind every bad thing that happens in USA.

Actually, on that topic, I kinda wish DK was more like USA, in that, whenever bad things happened we would just blame it on terrorist.

Or the author(s) of this tragedy isn't well versed in the timing of explosions.

Everything bad that happens in the US is to be blamed on terrorists. Sometimes it's foreign terrorists but more often than not it's domestic terrorists.

It appears it was timed to go off when the bulk of regular folk (Americans) would be going by.

Perhaps, or perhaps not. I will believe only what the evidence will show. Until then, I will spew all sorts of crazy ideas like any good ol' American conspiracy theorist would.





Actually, what you said there, Chas, makes sense. I'll go with that for now. Big Grin

If you want to maximize collateral damage - wait 'til everyone's crowding round the finish line. Most runners who arrive stick around a few hours waiting for their mates, chilling with the family, just generally milling around. Right when the first runners arrive there's not so many people at the finish line.
