Smgth: Why does this have to be political in ANY way?
JustGetItRight: InmanRoshi: Derpers have only gone 1 for 2 this week on domestic terrorism, after the TeaTard was caught for the Ricin attacks.First, this is a tea tard?[patterico.com image 487x392]A guy who attacks a US senator with a near 100% positive rating from the NRA and just about any other conservative organization isn't exactly following the tea party line. He's simply an equal opportunity nut.The part you and the other libs miss (actually ignore because it is uncomfortable) is that even if he was acting as part of a political movement, his actions were a perfect fit for domestic terrorists from both the left and right. He went after specific targets that were directly linked to his agenda. Even if he hadn't signed the letter, he would be easily tagged as a domestic.The internationals go for shock effect - specifically targeting random civilian populations. A market in Baghdad. A school in Russia. A marathon in Boston.

WhyteRaven74: muck4doo: Do Chechens speak Russian as their native language? Serious question.Many do speak Russian as their native/first language, though there are some for whom it's Chechen.
jonathan_L: muck4doo: Do Chechens speak Russian as their native language? Serious question.They do, but I think it's probably learned at school. They natively speak Chechen.
orclover: Ok three different kids who knew the younger one have hinted that they smoked weed with the guy. Obviously we need to ban weed.How did this farker have time to make bombs and plan an attack.
Coco LaFemme: DamnYankees: It's really amazing how utterly useless mainstream media is in events like this.Twitter and other Internet sources were running with the story of the MIT shooting/carjacking nearly a full hour before any of the cable news stations picked up on it. In fact, shiat was going down in Watertown before CNN even broke with the story that anyone had been shot at MIT.
TheShavingofOccam123: /someone said H.H. Holmes wasn't typical because he went to university and got his medical degree and prospered whereas in general psychopaths tend to just enough to get by.
KarmicDisaster: Theaetetus: DrPainMD: All of Boston on lockdown? Fark that. It's time to biatchslap the government and let them know who's in charge... we the people.[www.celebrateboston.com image 420x270]What the last time all of Boston was in lockdown looked likeIs Crispus Attucks OK?
jso2897: Jim from Saint Paul: jso2897: Farkers have been wrong about EVERYTHING so far, and I will take your word for what it is worth - jack shiat.jso2897: Farkers have been wrong about EVERYTHING so far, and I will take your word for what it is worth - jack shiat.jso2897: Farkers have been wrong about EVERYTHING so far, and I will take your word for what it is worth - jack shiat.Sorry - but, in the last twenty-four hours, Farkers have infromed me that the bombers are:Two random guys in the New York Post.A missing Indian student.Teabaggers.Redneck gun nuts.Occupy Wall Streeters.Anarchists.Iranian or Saudi intel or other operatives.Mossad.Jihadists.Nihilists.Lunatics.Please forgive me for failing to buy into whatever the current "theory" is.
awalkingecho: jso2897: I have no knowledge that he "says" anything - they haven't caught him, and may not catch him alive. I remind you - Farkers have been wrong about EVERYTHING so far, and I will take your word for what it is worth - jack shiat.At least half of us were right that they were white.
epocalypse: well, they are inarguably caucasian, so I guess anyone assuming that they were white is technically correct.
Mrfusticle: So if fundie Islamists aren't right wing what are they then? Commies?
GoldSpider: jso2897: I have no knowledge that he "says" anything - they haven't caught him, and may not catch him alive. I remind you - Farkers have been wrong about EVERYTHING so far, and I will take your word for what it is worth - jack shiat.If I go back and check the original bombing threads, will I find you postulating about the ideology of the perpetrator(s)?
tlars699: Fark has a different link about how AnheiserBusch heir stepped away from NRA because of it.
IlGreven: If he'd been in the country 10 years at that point, why hadn't he been naturalized already?

WhyteRaven74: LewDux: I really doubt itAs someone who is full blooded Slavic, Slavic people have referred to themselves as such for ages. Indeed for some Slavs, like Czechs it's been an intense matter of pride for oh a thousand years or so.muck4doo: Do Chechens speak Russian as their native language? Serious question.Many do speak Russian as their native/first language, though there are some for whom it's Chechen.
Infernalist: Huh..Some random dick dropped a hockey bag in front of some store and took off running, they're in pursuit and investigating the bag.
Silly Jesus: UNC_Samurai: Smgth: Mike Chewbacca: This thread(s) was better in the middle of the night when all the idiots were sleeping.A million times THIS!No one blabbing on and on about 'libs' and 'rightwing' and yadda yadda...Why does this have to be political in ANY way?Because the FARK admins and mods let the trolls overrun the Politics Tab over the course of the last few years.Because in all of the previous threads Farkers were having a circle jerk fantasizing about it being a Tea Bagger on Tax Day. Now that it's Islamists it's all "why bring up that it wasn't tea tards, man?"
vygramul: DrPainMD: rev. dave: So are we going to bomb the hell out of Chechnya now? Or are we going to take turns with the Russians making the place as flat as Kansas?I really hope we don't - so tired of war.Ummm... we've been waging war, covertly, in Chechnya for a long time. As in decades.Fissile: That's funny, because the bombers aren't Russian either(despite how the press is trying to spin it), they're Chechens.........America's good Muslim Chechen friends. The people America paid to destabilize Russia and murder Russian school kids.One of you is really wrong.
INeedAName: BraveNewCheneyWorld: Xcott: It's strange to see someone get all huffy and offended when people speculate. I imagine you standing next to a roulette table, screaming "LOOK, IT WAS 17. ALL OF YOU IDIOTS WHO THOUGHT YOU KNEW WHAT NUMBER IT WOULD BE SHOULD GO FARK YOURSELVES AND BE ASHAMED OF YOUR LIES."That is perhaps the dumbest comparison ever. The usual Dem loyalists were trying to exploit a tragedy to demonize their political opponents. No matter how you look at it, they're immoral douches. It's really amusing how many people are coming out of the woodwork to defend and downplay their behavior though. It's almost as if a few people feel guilty...It's almost as if you're a moron. How many right-wingers did they same thing? Let's not pretend like only one side of this story has stupidity. You certainly seem to be bringing your fair share to the table.And as an aside, I have no respect for anyone on either spot who wanted to use this as a chance to smear someone who was in no way related.
bugontherug: Dem loyalists and Teahadists speculated equally about opposing ideological motives.

Haliburton Cummings: Darth_Lukecash: ZeroCorpse: dababler: Everyone is describing the brothers as super polite, good athletes, decent students, good people so....WHY THE fark DID THEY DO IT?!The one that was killed was Muslim, and listened to the teachings of a radical prior to his arrival in America approximately a year ago. He was up for the Olympics. `Not sure what happened there, but clearly he's not rocking the Gold Medal, so he didn't make it for some reason. He had expressed in the past that he didn't understand Americans and had a hard time making friends here. He seemed concerned with Americans' immoral behavior-- I can only assume he meant this from a religious point of view.So there are a few motives right there:1. Bitter about his own athletic career hitting a wall, takes it out on other athletes.2. Radical Muslim teachings.3. Felt like an outcast.4. Believed Americans are immoral heathens.5. Came from a place where war and terrorism are acceptable answers to your problems.My guess? He grew up seeing a lot of bad things. He was influenced by a radical religious teacher. He felt alone and excluded here in America because of his religion and foreignness. He was angry that he didn't get to represent America in the Olympics. He convinced his brother to join him in a personal crusade to get revenge or make a personal statement.I've known athletes who take failure to be a sign that they have nothing left to live for. They take their sports very seriously, and it could be as simple as that: He dedicated his life to boxing with Olympic dreams, and when he fell short, he snapped.It's very doubtful he was acting for a group. It's more likely he was a sad, angry man who let radical religion, extreme sports conditioning, and his own feelings of failure drive him to extremism and petty revenge.The brothers grew up in US, went to high school in US.the Columbine kids did it for kicks.some people do really mean things just for kicks...
Bontesla: Shyla: Dimensio: Grand_Moff_Joseph: lol, scanner reporting that the K9 dogs are over hours, and need to go on breakHoly Crap, scanner just said the spent round they just found was a .40cal.40S&W is a caliber often used by police officers.The last officer talking about it on the scanner said "It looks like one of ours"Oh my god.
