My prayers are with you Boston...  

And my comment to the Jordan Extremists, to be happy innocent people were injured because US has troops over seas is just evil. Stop killing everyone around you where you live and maybe the Americans will leave the area.

And to Obama, "We still do not know who did this or why. And people shouldn't jump to conclusions before we have all the facts. But make no mistake, we will get to the bottom of this, and we will find out who did this. We'll find out why they did this. Any responsible individuals, any responsible groups, will fill the full weight of justice." This is just one more example of a death penalty offense, not because they bombed America but because they bombed human beings and took lives. And I do believe that the real threat of the death penalty can and will deter many horrible acts.

Boston, my prayers are with you. I hope the offenders are found and that you can all rise above such a cowardly act and triumph.

With regards to your comment to Jordan Extremists. I totally agree it's evil to say you are happy that innocent people were injured or killed because of US involvement in Jordan. Never right to say. As to the rest of what you said. I have real mixed feelings about this. Yes of course some countries hate to see awful things happening in other countries and want to do something about it. But at the same time, I can't help but think and feel that it's THEIR country, who are we to say how they go about things or how they should run their country. Sadly by us (And I say us because Britain does it to.) sticking our noses into their affairs, with good intentions, it does make those countries resent and hate us for meddling even if it's to try and help them and stop atrocities from happening. I mean, I try and put myself in their shoes. Yes you would want help, but at other times you'd want to say, just let us be, who are you to tell us what to do?

Very complicated.

However, let me make it clear I will never agree with acts of terrorism and hate against innocent people. It's cowardly and evil.

And sadly would the death penalty really deter these kind of people? Who often are more than happy to kill themselves in the act of taking out others for a cause they believe in?

It's just awful what happened and I guess whatever we think or feel, it's a tragedy and we can only but hope it won't happen again.

So I agree with you mostly. I don't think we need to be in other peoples countries telling them what to do. But on the flip side I also understand coming to the aid of friends. But what happens in the Middle East is they resent us because we aren't Muslim and we step in to police things because they threaten allies and resources. It's a vicious cycle.

But whether you are in your own country or another's, to murder someone with a gun, a knife, or a bomb is just wrong and evil and that is what gets to me. These extremists want us to listen to them and they use violence. I think the world over people are more likely to listen to someone if they stand up and speak rather than blow something up.

I don't know if it would deter these people but I feel the US has become to wishy washy on things. If we took a hard stance and went after those who are responsible it would be less likely to happen, I think. But we take it and we sit around and tell them we'll get justice but it doesn't even seem that affective.

I do wonder if someone who was planning on bombing a location knew that the US or the British government was going to hunt them down and wipe them out if they might think twice. Muslims who believe they will got to their version of heaven if they die for their cause might not but I still think we've let the terrorists have too much free reign.

I've also wondered about the countries these people come from. Are they going after such people? Do they care? Would they think twice if they thought bombing the US meant we'd come over there and drop bombs everywhere? I mean I'm not for violence but you can't just do nothing. You should always stand up for yourself whether you are a person or a country.
