The only reason more people aren't dead is due to fast and excellent emergency medical response. That and the fact the bombs were by feet instead of heads. Why this wouldn't be labeled a terrorist attack is beyond me. It doesn't matter who did it.
As of this moment, it was considered a "domestic" terrorist attack however not by the terrorist who usually cause death and destruction as those of al-Quada. A possible suspect has been found however, not yet arrested. So sad, so unnecessary.
My trainer who was a military guy said its no way a terrorist attack. How can bomb go off in the middle of a crowd of people and only 3 people die? It isnt possible he said because hes seen terrorist bomb and they leave craters with pools of blood. This was domestic, probably meant to scare people or something nd went wrong. Thats just from perspective of the bomb.
The answer to this is a no-brainer. YES! The sad part is they are now going to remain silent because they fully know that our drone capability can take them out ANYWHERE in the world, including U.S. soil!!!

This bombing has the earmarks of a madman, not a terrorist. If it had been a terrorist, the bombs would have been more strategically placed and a lot more people would have died. These bombs were placed haphazardly and the whole thing was done poorly. Lucky for our people it was not a terrorist attack, or it would have been a lot worse.
Any damage at all from a bomb in a crowd is a terrorist attack. The thing is did the terrorist come from the U S which is called a homegrown terrorist if done alone a lone wolf or did he come from another part of the world. Then a terrorist group might be responsible
It's not done by a professional terrorist. If it was a REAL terrorist, so many more people would have died and left craters in the ground. At this moment it's considered a domestic terrorist attack. But because people were impaled by nails and other shrapnel, we assume that they put sharp objects in the bomb. Boston Police also found three more devices that were supposed to go off but they failed to explode.
Of course it was a terrorist attack. Just because it didn't take out thousands doesn't make it any less terrorism, just means the attacker lacks competence. Homegrown nut or foreign nut doesn't matter. It's the intent, not the numbers that matter.
