Marathon Bombing

5 posts in this topic

The running of the marathon commemorates the defeat of an attempt by the Persian Empire to conquer Greece. The battle took place on the Plain of Marathon in 490 BC. It was a victory of Western Civilization over Asiatic Despotism. As such it may have the most important battle fought in history.

Darius was frustrated at Marathon, but it was Xerxes who tried his luck at Thermopolea and Salamis.

The Greek cities in Ionia were still paying tribute to the Persians.

The Persians where whipped at the Sea Battle of Salamis 480 b.c.e. and on land at Plataea. 479 b.c.e.

But the real destruction of the Persian Empire was done by Alexander around 331 b.c.e.

So it was Alexander that finally ended "Asiatic Despotism". Greece remained Greek until it was squashed by the Romans.

I think the Boston bombing was done by Muslim Jihadis. But we will have to wait for the thing to be properly investigated before we know.

It has been definitively established that the cause was a utube video of the annual Patriot's Day re-enactment of the Battle of Lexington and Concord. The presence of guns (muskets and a small canon) and implicit references to freedom offended the North Koreans, who couldn't get their missile launched and hired a muzzl'em to carry out their joint justifiable anger with a lost shipment of anti-Israeli bombs. Obama is now hunting down the Patriot's Day fan who made the offensive amateur video that no one has seen but must be the cause.

O just used the T word -- imagine how his refusal to use that word in any context polled overnight.

He finally did use the T word but it was not preceded by the I word or the J word.
