I think every country just gives TOO MUCH importance to what could happen in the United States. Well... I know: History, money, power, blah blah blah. But it's irritating, unfair and unjustifiable.
Airplane crash is a tragic accident. It may be because of human error or ignorance, but nevertheless, an accident.

The incident in Boston is a planned terrorist attack. Some human being planned and created bombs purposely to kill and hurt as many human beings as possible.

Boston Marathon is an international event. The many flags flying where the first bomb exploded represent countries of the athletes.
