They violated the First Rule of Such Things:  Un-ass the AO (ie., leave the Area of Operations quickly).

Also, one of them was an idiot that wore his hat backwards, so cameras could get a good look at his face.  That's just piss-poor operational security.   I'm wondering if the identification of that person led to them attracting the attention of law enforcement.

The liberal outrage, feet shuffling, and red herring throwing over this is as sad as it is predictable and unnecessary.  I'm sure the right would do the same if it were a home-grown group of white guys (and those guys aren't white in the American sense of the word).

They're 20 year old men.  20 year old men do stupid shiat.  Violent shiat.  Their actions don't reflect on Islam anymore than McVeigh's reflect on people who want less government.  It's like trying to tie Stalin to Atheism.

Fissile: Wait, I'm confused.  Aren't Chechens some of the "good Muslims" that Murica aided and abetted in attacking the Russians?  Didn't the US of Murica repeatedly condemn the Russians for dropping cluster bombs on these "good Muslims"?   It appears that these Chechens made their way here from Turkey.  Isn't Turkey a "good Muslim" country that is a solid friend to Murica, and, even more importantly, a good friend to Israel?  Wasn't Bin Laden armed by Murica when he was killing Russians?  Sure is funny how the "good Muslims" that the US encourages to attack the Russians always seem to end up turning on Murica.


Population of Chechnya - 1,300,000

Summary for those just starting their coffee:

Apparent convenience store robbery
MIT cop responds, these clowns shoot him multiple times
They carjack somebody
(gap in my knowledge)
At some point they're in an SUV that may have been a stolen police vehicle
They shoot at the cops and throw and/or plant grenades and/or IEDs
(No kidding, on the scanner there was something akin to "Shots fired! Shots fired! Grenade! Grenade! Grenade!", and there's a YouTube video out there with half a minute of sustained gunfire)
Running firefight
"Black Hat" shot multiple times, possibly run over, possibly injured by bomb strapped to chest
"White Hat" escapes
"Black Hat" taken to Beth Israel, dies
Code Black (usually means bomb or bomb threat) at area hospital, but NOT Beth Israel
"White Hat" spotted (twice?) but gets away, possibly in another firefight
Now at large.

/Oh, and at some point an innocent who was very much in the wrong place at the wrong time spent 20m face-down on the ground with a robot probing him, then he was stripped and put in the back of a police vehicle before being cleared.

And we've got cops, FBI, Homeland Security, National Guard, HumVees, and at one point something described as a "tank."
I know this sounds like I'm Michael-Bay-ing you, but really, seriously, I'm not.

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.

Gotta feed that squirrel.


FARK first became really unbearable to me around the 2008 election.  Had to take a few months away, and then forgot my original password, so I had to make a new account (I go back to about 2003-ish, the Admiral Ackbar PS thread got me hooked; "It's a Map!" still rules).

This place used to be awesome.  Now, with the immediate breakdown of all events into predictable political arguments, the overzealous deletion of posts, and, worst of all, the reduction of BOOBIES threads, I'm only coming here out of habit.  I'm sure at some point I'll find something better.

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.

And what were they doing robbing a 7-Eleven? And with a bomb strapped to the chest of one. Were they TRYING to draw attention to themselves?

My only guess is they knew they were close to getting caught, and had other plans (bombings) that they knew would no longer work so they were just trying to cause as much damage as they could...

Timeline

- At 5:10 p.m. Thursday, investigators of the bombings release photographs and video of two suspects. They ask for the public's help in identifying the men.

- Around 10:20 p.m., shots are fired on the campus of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, just outside Boston.

- At 10:30 p.m., an MIT campus police officer who was responding to a disturbance is found shot multiple times in his vehicle, apparently in a confrontation with the Boston Marathon bombing suspects. He is later pronounced dead.

- Shortly afterward, two armed men reportedly carjack a Mercedes SUV in Cambridge. A man who was in the vehicle is held for about a half hour and then released unharmed at a gas station on Memorial Drive in Cambridge.

- Police soon pursue the carjacked vehicle in Watertown, just west of Cambridge.

- Some kind of explosive devices are thrown from the vehicle in an apparent attempt to stop police. The carjackers and police exchange gunfire. A transit police officer is seriously injured. One suspect, later identified as Suspect No. 1 in the marathon bombings, is critically injured and later pronounced dead.

- Authorities launch a manhunt for the other suspect.

- Around 1 a.m. Friday, gunshots and explosions are heard in Watertown. Dozens of police officers and FBI agents converge on a Watertown neighborhood. A helicopter circles overhead.

- Around 4:30 a.m., Massachusetts state and Boston police hold a short outdoor news briefing. They tell people living in that section of eastern Watertown to stay in their homes. They identify the carjackers as the same men suspected in the marathon bombings. Overnight, police also release a photograph of a man believed to be Suspect No. 2, apparently taken from store video earlier in the evening at a 7-Eleven convenience store in Cambridge. He is wearing a gray hoodie-style sweatshirt.

- Around 5:50 a.m. authorities urge residents in Watertown, Newton, Waltham, Belmont, Cambridge, Arlington and the Allston-Brighton neighborhoods of Boston to stay indoors. All mass transit is shut down.

- Around 6:35 a.m., The Associated Press reports that the bomb suspects are from a Russian region near Chechnya and lived in the United States for at least a year.

- Around 6:45 a.m., The Associated Press identifies the surviving Boston bomb suspect as Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19, who has been living in Cambridge.

- Around 8 a.m., Boston's police commissioner says all of Boston must stay in their homes as the search for the surviving suspect in the bombings continues.

- Around 8:40 a.m., a U.S. law enforcement official and the uncle of the suspects confirm that the name of the slain suspect is Tamerlan Tsarnaev, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's older brother.

- Around 10:20 a.m., Connecticut State Police say a gray Honda CRV believed to be linked to Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been recovered in Boston.

- Around 10:35 a.m., the University Of Massachusetts Dartmouth says it has closed its campus and orderd an evacuation after confirming that missing marathon bombings suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is registered there. The school says it closed the campus "out of an abundance of caution" as the search continued.

Just woke up from having passed out at 5am...OK, pretty much nobody (including myself) expected Chechen bombers.  (Probably because--well, until 15 April, anyways--Chechen bombers tended to very much target Russians within Russia.)

Now of course, the big question is whether the Chucklefark Brothers are in fact more of a homegrown sympathiser cell to Chechen "Emirate revolutionaries", or if they're actually part of a revolutionary cell from Chechnya and the main groups committing coontil recently) domestic terrorism in Russia have decided to expand internationally.  (If so...I fear that life is about to become extremely interesting in the Chinese sense for everyone in Grozny and the surrounding area.)

(Frankly, I'm hoping for the former--if the latter, expect the TSA rodgering to start before you even hit the airport...one thing that Chechen terrorists are known for doing is blowing themselves up in the airport security lines because that was the biggest mass of people.)

I also would like to point out that there are at least two separate and distinct factions that have been pushing for an independent Chechnya.  One calls for more of a relatively secular government (if they were to go "Islamic republic" it'd be much more like, oh, say, Malaysia which has a "We're officially Moslem but that's about as much as Germany is officially Lutheran or the UK is officially CoE, we're actually pretty cool with not only all the People of the Book but even Chinese and Indo-Malayans practicing Taoism and Buddhism and Hinduism") and there is a second faction (which is considerably more right-wing, theocratic, and derpier) which calls for the establishment of a "Caucasian Emirate".  Seeing as the older Brosama pretty much supposedly has a Youtube screed up that promotes the theocratic justification given for the "Caucasian Emirate" by its followers, it's pretty obvious what side the Chucklefark Brothers are on.

And in that light, I'd like to send a special message out if somehow Chucklefark Brother the Younger is reading:

What you did was...unspeakably dumb, to the point there are neither words in English nor in Russian nor in Chechnyan nor in pretty much any language speakable by humans to express the sheer level of DUMBASS you have displayed in the past week.  (To get to the proper levels of derp, we'll have to personally interview Azathoth the Blind Idiot God to get its viewpoint, and THAT risks US catching the derp.)

People in the US probably would have had some level of sympathy with the idea of a Chechnyan republic (even a "we're technically a Moslem state but just in the same sense that the UK is a CoE state" sort of deal)...note I said "would have", as you chucklefarks pretty much blew all possibility of sympathy with the Chechnyan cause out the door for a lot of Americans when you decided to blow up the finish line of the Boston Marathon.

Right now, I'd not be a damn bit surprised if a lot of Americans would actively WELCOME Vlad Pooty-Poot reducing Grozny to rubble--whilst riding a rocket there, "Dr. Strangelove" style.  It's actually a tossup between whether the Russians or the Americans are more likely to go into "overkill" mode, especially when little kids are involved.

In short, congratulations on pretty much having set back your cause approximately to the point of the reign of the Romanovs, and may Allah have mercy on your soul because I seriously doubt that Boston's finest are going to have any mercy on your more corporeal parts.

You, Like CheneyWorld, are cherry-picking one of a dozen theories that were circulated in multiple threads that were well over 1000 posts. I believe a few people even joked it might be a guy who failed to qualify for the marathon, and as a result he designed a bomb to take out other people's legs. As a runner, you don't see me popping up in the thread and saying "HA! See?? It wasn't a runner with a grudge! Eat crow, biatches!" What it does show is that you are self conscious of your association and embarrassed by the fact that yes, it could have been something like that. No one wanted it to turn out to be something like a right-wing nut job. It was a possibility that was raised. Just because you now have a profound sense of relief that it wasn't something like you have an urge to act smug. Just relax, man.

Something seems fishy...

you are condensing 12 hours of events down into two sentences that aren't even correct.


What is incorrect about it? That's all that I'm hearing. Were you there, that you know better?

 Well,for one thing, I've been around for the whole damn shebang so far. And at no point has it been confirmed the brother was run over by the younger bro. There was a hit and run pedestrian related to all this, but it was an indian man whose name launched speculation as to it being the missing Brown U student. Here's more, accurate summation:

Apparent convenience store robbery
MIT cop responds, these clowns shoot him multiple times
They carjack somebody. Victim's name becomes a suspect name thanks to idiots listening.
Hit-and-Run event with an Indian man. This launches people to name the Brown U student as suspect.
At some point they're in an SUV that may have been a stolen police vehicle
They shoot at the cops and throw and/or plant grenades and/or IEDs
(No kidding, on the scanner there was something akin to "Shots fired! Shots fired! Grenade! Grenade! Grenade!", and there's a YouTube video out there with half a minute of sustained gunfire) Photos of after mathof firefight posted to twitter by a resident
Running firefight
"Black Hat" shot multiple times, possibly injured by bomb strapped to chest (chest burns referenced at one point)
"White Hat" escapes
"Black Hat" taken to Beth Israel, dies
Code Black (usually means bomb or bomb threat) at area Beth Israel (confirmed)
Lockdown event at nearby Children's Hospital, no threat found
"White Hat" spotted (twice?) but gets away, possibly in another firefight

Possibly even wanting to fight for America in the Olympics. So bizarre. Alex Jones is jizzing his pants right now though thinking of all the brainwashing stories they can make up...


Read the boxing profile on the older brother.  Dresses European, became more conservative Muslim doen't understand Americans.  Has been here since he was 5 and has not had one American friend.

Isolated confused, unable to connect with people except his brother.  Has nice car but friendships and fulfillment are always out of his reach.  Parents probably bought him the car which means they're well off but probably overworked and distant to him.  They give him everything he wants and needs but affection and discipline.

Exactly the type who would seek to make a mission or a cause for himself aganst the world.

Fissile: FrancoFile: Fissile: Wait, I'm confused.  Aren't Chechens some of the "good Muslims" that Murica aided and abetted in attacking the Russians?  Didn't the US of Murica repeatedly condemn the Russians for dropping cluster bombs on these "good Muslims"?   It appears that these Chechens made their way here from Turkey.  Isn't Turkey a "good Muslim" country that is a solid friend to Murica, and, even more importantly, a good friend to Israel?  Wasn't Bin Laden armed by Murica when he was killing Russians?  Sure is funny how the "good Muslims" that the US encourages to attack the Russians always seem to end up turning on Murica.

Um, no.

The Chechens are not 'good Muslims' and the US has never supported them.  They are ethnic gangsters, pure and simple, and their religion just makes it easier for them to get support from radical Islamists in other countries.

=============

Your tiny Fox News contaminated mind can't admit the truth, can it?   The US has REPEATEDLY CONDEMNED THE RUSSIANS FOR DEFENDING THEMSELVES FROM THE CHECHENS.   Every time the Chechens blew up a grade school in Russia, Dick Cheney would cream himself. So, to sum up, FARK YOU.


Hey Dickwad.  Yeah, you.

I lived in Russia for two years, when the Chechens were just starting to flex their muscles after the end of the Soviet Union.  I was there when Dudayev was in power, and bombs were going off in Moscow.  I worked with ordinary Russians - including ones who came from neighboring regions of the Caucuses - who told me about how long the Chechens had been an integral part of organized crime, going back to before the October Revolution.

The US criticized the Russians for using egregious levels of force in the Beslan hostage taking, but condemned the hostage-takers.  I was still in touch with friends there when it happened.

So stop living in a fantasy world, Dickwad.

One of the most interesting insights into Tamerlan's personality so far comes from a photo album, titled "Will Box For Passport," that photographer Johannes Hirn took of the slain suspect. Tamerlan was apparently a boxer who hoped to gain citizenship by being selected for the U.S. Olympic team: "Unless his native Chechnya becomes independent, Tamerlan says he would rather compete for the United States than for Russia," Hirn wrote.
Other captions paint Tamerlan as a devoted Muslim. "I'm very religious," he says at one point, noting that he does not smoke or drink alchol. "There are no values anymore," he says, worrying that "people can't control themselves."
Tamerlan also appears isolated and bewildered by American life. "I don't have a single American friend," he laments, despite living in the United States for five years. "I don't understand them."


Maybe this is why he targeted a sporting event; and maybe being a devout Muslim had nothing to do with this?

FarkinNortherner: dittybopper: There are only two possibilities: Either they possessed the guns legally, and had a Massachusetts FID showing that they passed a background check, or they possessed the guns illegally. It's as simple as that.

In other words, Massachusetts law is already much stricter that what was proposed and failed in the Senate the other day. If anyone tries to make political hay out of it, saying that's why we need universal background checks, it's likely to backfire. [My bold]

Unless they bought the guns in another state, in which case it's pretty straightforward (and not wholly irrational) to argue for Mass's standards to be applied nationwide.


You don't get it:  It's illegal for them to have possessed in MA without a permit.

By the same token, it would be illegal for them to purchase in another state without a background check:  Under federal law, you can only transact a private sale with a resident of your same state.  In effect, there is *ZERO* way to legally purchase a gun and bring it in to MA legally without some sort of background check.  Period.  End of story.

Plus, I find the idea that people willing to commit indiscriminate mass-murder would be stymied by even the strictest laws constitutionally possible in the United States ludicrous on the face of it.  I mean, how can you say that with a straight face?  Don't criminals in Massachusetts get guns despite the strict laws?

I mean, come on:  The UK had laws much stricter than the US, and they still couldn't keep the IRA from getting guns, and you're seriously arguing that background checks would have stopped this bombing?  Or just that they wouldn't be able to get guns?

Really?

I get the feeling based upon a telephone interview i heard on NPR earlier (my wife woke me up with the news, so we had the radio on) where some kid said "one was a loser, the other brother was really cool....bu the other one was a loser" that "loser" is apparently some kind of epithet within that community that means something far worse than our traditional "you're a loser" thing.

I mean, I get the fact that most reactionary American rightwing extremists really hate and fear Muslims, but that doesn't magically transform them into liberals. They're hardcore religious nut jobs - anti-abortion, anti-evolution, anti-pornography, opposed to sex outside of marriage, in favor of harsh anti-drug laws, opposed to feminism, virulently anti-homosexual.

If it's someone else from FootyTube logging in to his account and deleting them to hide the embarrassment of being associated with him, I imagine that's a quick way to get the FBI party van to show up to your place.

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?"

Not in the last thread it wasn't. I know that's what you choose to believe, but that doesn't make it true. I've been watching this thing play out for almost 12 hours, and the previous thread wasn't talking about politics.

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.

JackieRabbit: This smacks of an FBI disinformation campaign (NTTAWWT). There were five bombs total. So there has to be at least five people involved. Two guys carrying in five backpacks would have drawn immediate attention. Yet they only speak of two, the identities of which they are not releasing. They probably have a pretty good idea of who the other three are, but want to engender a false sense of safety in them. I suspect we are going to hear about a SWAP operation in a few days.


Or possibly early reports were wrong, as they often are in the immediate aftermath of a confusing event where a lot of information is being processed simultaneously. Such as reports of explosions that were later found to be incorrect and at least one bag which was detonated to be safe, but was subsequently discovered to be just a normal bag, no bomb materials inside.

First of all, Jesus friggin' christ you people are thin skinned whiners. You're not oppressed because some people on a public forum jumped to a conclusion. When butthurt like this is taken to an extreme we see things like that Homeland Security report that had to be withdrawn because it hurt some conservatives' feelings. Talk about political correctness being shoved down everyone's throats...

Second, have you ever considered that, sure, personal bias is involved, but another part of the reason that people like to jump to that conclusion is because of the number of right-wingers who've bombed federal buildings and shot up public places over the last couple decades? It's a little out of proportion with their representation in the U.S. population.

Finally, the way I remember it was there was more "we always get this wrong so let's not speculate" than "I bet this was a right wing nutjob" commentary in the Fark threads I read. (For myself, I didn't publicly speculate on this one. I haven't speculated on anyone's alignment since the Sikh Temple shooting, where I correctly called the perp as a supremacist.)

If we're going to go after these guys for their heritage, then we might as well go back to attacking all gingers for their connection to the IRA, and all people of English descent for their attachment to the attacks against the Colonies.


Correction: ONE brother was here since he was 7, the other was in Turkey, then moved to America last year, legally.

But, I'm sorry to say, the Brother who moved from Turkey did have negative things to say about Americans and was known to pay attention to radical Muslim teachings.

Plus, you get a couple emails telling you that the university is closed, the hospital is closed (med school researcher) and that events you wanted to attend are cancelled anyway.

Say what you want, but the reason Russia is still around is anyone in that regions knows when you f*ck with the Russians you take your life in your hands. They don't just go in and kill you. They invade and kill you, your family, friends and anyone you've ever known. And then just for sh*ts and giggles they poison your water, salt your land, and burn everything else to the ground. It's not civilized, but neither is killing an 8 year old boy that's watching the Boston marathon.

Again. You're losing because you're too nice.

Woah, I recognize this kid.  I wrestled against him in high school.  He had this one move called the Chechnyan Pretzel.  Basically, he'd come storming out, grab you by the legs and arms and twist you into a farking pretzel.  He looks small but must have had some extra chromosomes are some shiat, because he could open canned goods with his farking teeth.  Anyway, nobody could even come close to beating the son of a biatch.  And I had to wrestle him in the first round of our State tourney!

When the whistle blew, I came charging out and he came charging out.  Just like lightning, he grabbed and twisted me around.  I was upside down and turned around before I knew what hit me.  Then I saw it - dangling out of a singlet, a pair of hairy testicles!  Cheating be damned, I craned my neck and sunk my teeth into the farkers.  I pinned him half a second later.

Coach asked me how I won and I told him about the ball bite.  He asked, "You bit his nuts?"  And I had to admit, "No, they were mine!"

nekom: BarkingUnicorn: nekom: cptrios: DamnYankees: This kid must be scared beyond his mind right now. Not that we need to feel bad for him, but just from a sociological point of view, imagine how farked he must feel.

I know you're getting a ton of crap for this, but it's a completely valid thought...I get the feeling that this kid was in thrall to his older brother and is at best a reluctant participant. It doesn't mean we should feel sorry for him, but it means that it might be possible to take him alive and get to the bottom of all of this.

Let's hope so. Not because I want blood (them both being dead would suffice for that), but because I want answers. I want the WHY behind this.

Why?  Serious question.  At best, this kid is going to spout an explanation which you will reject.  At worst,  you'll agree with him that "They had it coming."

Well, first and foremost we need to be sure it's just these two jackwagons and noone else. So far it SEEMS to be the case, but it would be nice to verify that with as much information as is possible. Secondly, more facts may help future profiling and criminal investigations.

Of course I don't personally care their reasons, whatever they are they are surely insane.

Well if this had anything to do with them being Chechens, there is how cozy the US has been with Russia. But given how long the brothers have been in the US, I suspect their ethnicity is about as relevant as their preferences in shoe brands.

FrancoFile: Fissile: FrancoFile: Fissile: Wait, I'm confused.  Aren't Chechens some of the "good Muslims" that Murica aided and abetted in attacking the Russians?  Didn't the US of Murica repeatedly condemn the Russians for dropping cluster bombs on these "good Muslims"?   It appears that these Chechens made their way here from Turkey.  Isn't Turkey a "good Muslim" country that is a solid friend to Murica, and, even more importantly, a good friend to Israel?  Wasn't Bin Laden armed by Murica when he was killing Russians?  Sure is funny how the "good Muslims" that the US encourages to attack the Russians always seem to end up turning on Murica.

Um, no.

The Chechens are not 'good Muslims' and the US has never supported them.  They are ethnic gangsters, pure and simple, and their religion just makes it easier for them to get support from radical Islamists in other countries.

=============

Your tiny Fox News contaminated mind can't admit the truth, can it?   The US has REPEATEDLY CONDEMNED THE RUSSIANS FOR DEFENDING THEMSELVES FROM THE CHECHENS.   Every time the Chechens blew up a grade school in Russia, Dick Cheney would cream himself. So, to sum up, FARK YOU.

Hey Dickwad.  Yeah, you.

I lived in Russia for two years, when the Chechens were just starting to flex their muscles after the end of the Soviet Union.  I was there when Dudayev was in power, and bombs were going off in Moscow.  I worked with ordinary Russians - including ones who came from neighboring regions of the Caucuses - who told me about how long the Chechens had been an integral part of organized crime, going back to before the October Revolution.

The US criticized the Russians for using egregious levels of force in the Beslan hostage taking, but condemned the hostage-takers.  I was still in touch with friends there when it happened.

So stop living in a fantasy world, Dickwad.

GungFu: ACunningPlan: One of the most interesting insights into Tamerlan's personality so far comes from a photo album, titled "Will Box For Passport," that photographer Johannes Hirn took of the slain suspect. Tamerlan was apparently a boxer who hoped to gain citizenship by being selected for the U.S. Olympic team: "Unless his native Chechnya becomes independent, Tamerlan says he would rather compete for the United States than for Russia," Hirn wrote.
Other captions paint Tamerlan as a devoted Muslim. "I'm very religious," he says at one point, noting that he does not smoke or drink alchol. "There are no values anymore," he says, worrying that "people can't control themselves."
Tamerlan also appears isolated and bewildered by American life. "I don't have a single American friend," he laments, despite living in the United States for five years. "I don't understand them."

Maybe this is why he targeted a sporting event; and maybe being a devout Muslim had nothing to do with this?


Huh?


He wanted to gain US citizenship by being selected for the US Olympic team: maybe that's why he bombed an international sporting event?  Radicalized Muslim is a theory, but let's face it - given his background, this bloke's political beef should be with Russia [not the US] - why not hit Russian targets [embassies, Russian emigres homes etc, etc.] within the US.

It was just a thought & perhaps not a smart one:)

I was watching this (here in Canada) on the CBC and thought, it's going to make life absolute hell for Muslims living in America and the west. It appears that it's going to be a long religious war without an end in sight. And I don't think the west is going to win. Couple of reasons. We're not ruthless enough anymore. When our ancestors got into it with Muslim countries in the past, we went in an slaughtered every man, woman and child. I'm not advocating genocide, but what's the alternative at this rate. A slow war or small cuts? They come and kill and terrorize America and the west year after year after year without an end in sight. How long can and will Americans put up with that? Maybe we need to learn to be more like the Russians. You go in, and you crush the country (Chechnya). I'm not saying it's right, but perhaps if you chose a significant target like Medina or Mecca and destroyed it and then said "next time, it's Pakistan, or Palestine, or Saudi Arabia" perhaps the message might sink in. What's the alternative I wonder?

I know it's not a good way, but what else is there to do? Fight an endless religious battle against an enemy that has time, nut cases, and breeds like rats?
