To be fair, there is a huge difference between a compound fracture, which may not involve any severance of major blood vessels, and where there is only a small hole in the skin, and having all of the soft tissue of your lower leg destroyed, in which major arteries are severed, and are completely exposed. I will leave it to others who know far more about trauma than I do--including some who replied to that blog--to argue that massive bleeding does not necessarily occur in these circumstances.hiero2 said:I have BEEN on the ground - with my leg in two pieces. I have seen my own bones exposed. I LIVED through the incident. I worked with a man who had a VERY similar injury - except he was out in the middle of the desert, on a motorcycle. He had to drive himself back to where he could be met by medical personnel. With his own bones protruding from his leg as he drove the 20-30 minute trip to where he could get medical assistance.
But there is another major problem with this staged bombing theory. All the doctors who supposedly treated the victims would have to be in on the ruse. I saw an interview with a couple of these doctors, a day or two after the bombing, in which they provided a very general update on the conditions of the patients. If this theory is right, these doctors were either lying--apparently because of being bribed, threatened or paid off by the government--or were actors. If the latter, surely someone at the hospital would have figured this out by now. After all, they were identified by names and positions. Someone falsely claiming to be a doctor working in a certain department at a certain hospital is interviewed on a program watched world-wide, by hundreds of millions of people, and no one catches this?
In fact, a large number of people working at several Boston area hospitals would have to be involved in this conspiracy. And what about the reported three people who died, and their relatives and friends? If these pretend-victims were real people, as named, they would have to disappear for the rest of their lives, to maintain the secret. If they were make-believe, all the people who claimed to know them would have to be lying. Including people in China who reacted to the death of the young Chinese student. All of these people were part of a gigantic lie--for what reason?
