    Not surprised. The little piggy dictator thinks he's a hot-shot, so let him think he's a hot-shot. It'll only make his failure (and hopefully fall) that much more sweet. If America doesn't shoot down the missile, Japan most certainly will from what I've gathered from that article.

    I don't want anyone to die from such a stupid move, but if he thinks he can get away with that, then he should get his piggy ass handed to him on a silver platter, and thus the end of North Korea. If fighting breaks out there, I don't see it lasting for very long. North Korea's army is weak. China should've just accepted the fleeing soldiers without hesitation instead of shooing them back.

    North Korea would be obliterated off of the map if they tried to start something against the U.S. and South Korea. Even China is getting a little tired of them at this point so no one will miss them.

    Apparently both the United States and China are very serious about the "Denuclearization" of the Korean Peninsula. Both countries seem to wish that the situation end in dialogue rather than the deaths of North Korean citizens and potentially soldiers. One has to wonder, though, if General MacArthur was allowed to push beyond the Yalu River and finish the job, would there even be a North Korea now? His handling of Japan and post war strategies proved to be successes.

    Boston Marathon got bombed (with livestream)

    Seriously. Who'd do such a thing, and why the Boston Marathon, of all events?

    UPDATE: At least 12 dead, 50 injured.

    I think parades attract a lot of people so the criminal wanted a huge impact. this could be because of terrorism, craving attention, etc. all in all, this a terrible occurrence

    Oh God, I heard about this just as class ended because a Serebii member posted on her DreamWidth that she's reporting in that she's fine. But still, this is awful. The news are just bursting with this right now. The fact they played back sound clip of the first explosion is just... oh good Lord... it was all I could do to keep from sobbing in the car. And of course, there are reports of a third bomb going off at the JFK Library (no injuries).

    I hope they catch this maniac soon. Catch him and kill him, he deserves no mercy for this.

    Man. This is terrible. One person should not be able to ruin so many others. My heart goes out to everyone affected by this event.

    (If you're expecting me to act like I did after the school shootings, you'll be pleasantly disappointed.)

    My commiserations to the dudes who got blown up in Boston, I mean it's terrifically (in the most literal sense of the word) random, ain't it? But then again that is the whole point of terrorism, to strike at the most opportunistic of times and leave destruction in it's wake, but there's nothing we can do, you try to fight back, the terrorists win, you try to forget about it, the terrorists win, and so whereas we're worried about freakin' Wizard Of Oz topping the charts, they've got to be accustomed to this threat, show solidarity America, show solidarity and we'll show respect.

    Yeah, I've got no bad things to say about this and quite rightly, it's such a shock, ain't it? Whereas we're caring about silly songs, you've had to deal with this mad Spawn Of A Demon ruin a lifetime of happiness, all the days that could've been, all the days that were, all the memories, all of the futures which they could've led are gone and either one man or one group had the tenacity, the downright abhorrence to change it? To desecrate someones life and memories like it, to ruin an occurrence for what? The person that you capture, should you kill that person, no. No, don't kill it for doing so will be naught but a sweet embrace, instead pass it around the victims, have the victims show into it their vengeance, then if what's left bears a resemblance no matter how miniscule to a being with a vertebrate then you may end it after a lifetime of pain, and only then may you give it the warm embrace, only then.

    I'm not sure why attacking America seems to be amusing to some people.
    The Internet isn't taking this seriously at all, but that's expected.
    My heart goes out to all the victims.

    Some times, karma, but for this time, I agree with you, attacking them isn't the right thing to do.

    My bad. Conflicting sources. Not American, so I didn't figure out that NY Post is full of crap.

    I heard about this when I got home from a job interview and the TV that my family was watching was on Seven. I hope that the perpetrators are captured. The stock markets fell after the attacks, and gold plunged over 9 percent to what I believe was the lowest level since 1980.

    We're glad you know your vocabulary, but this isn't a time for poems, my dear sir. Anyway, my mom told me immediately after school. Then it was on the radio. Then on the news. Truly sad if you ask me, and right before the finish line, too.

    Killing the one(s) responsible doesn't solve the answer though, an eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind and all that jazz. You kill one terrorist, another one pops up like a Viral Hydra. No, no, send them to jail, have their anuses be hourly inspected by dudes in the shower, just don't allow them the satisfaction of death.

    (So should I be poetic and truthful or shit all over your sorrow. Give me an answer between kindness or dickassery.)

    The bold really bothered me. We can do something. As long as we show that we are still not afraid to live life, and that terror isn't within us, they don't win. After all, the point of terrorism is to invoke fear to others.

    you try to fight back, the terrorists win, you try to forget about it, the terrorists win
    The main goal of terrorism is to instill fear in a general populace or people group. Al Qaeda hasn't really been able to do that since about... 12 years ago. You don't see people running around the streets, shouting for everyone to get into their anti-terrorism bunkers. We don't have anti-terrorism bunkers, at least not yet. That means Al Qaeda has not been doing their job very effectively of instilling fear in the American populace, since it seems that every time they pull something like this, the United States and its allies go in and start picking them off with sniper rifles. Of course, this entire post is based off the assumption that it was Al Qaeda, and according to the Drudge Report there's a fair amount of evidence that it was. The Drudge is rarely wrong, anyway.

    Those who were interested in the SOPA and PIPA bills proposed in the past few years may be interested to know that CISPA, widely considered as bad or worse than both, is up for vote this week. The White House claims it will be vetoed it if it comes to President Obama's desk, but I figured some might like to know anyway.

    Here you are.

    The White House today delivered a formal veto threat against a controversial data-sharing bill called CISPA that would allow intelligence agencies to collect personal information about Americans from private companies.

    In a statement this afternoon, President Obama's aides said they "would recommend that he veto the bill," which is scheduled for a House of Representatives floor vote this week.
    If you hadn't heard of it or want to learn more about it, the article also includes a FAQ. A year old, mind you, but it's there if you want it.
