Well, now that Fark's crappy servers took their deep breath, I can present you with my witty comment:

"I'm f*cking Matt Damon"

Seeing the older brother's comments on competing for Chechnya makes me wonder if I was right by accident when I first discussed this case.  It seemed weird to me as an attack on America, because it seemed like the ONE thing I know about the Boston Marathon is that it's used as a qualifying event for a lot of Olympic hopefuls.  Maybe he really WAS targeting friends and family of Olympians out of rage he wouldn't ever be able to compete for Chechnya.

Or will Obama be strafing this HS as a terrorist haven?

The conspiracy continues to widen

I don't see the mention of conspiracy anywhere on that page

In fact the only page I've seen these murders called a conspiracy is here on FARK with the usual leftists blamed Christians, Conservatives, the Tea Party, the "gun culture" and tax protestors.

All while claiming it was racist to point out it was done by... exactly it was in fact done by.

Maybe, but if that is the case he was not very smart as those trying to qualify would had finished long before the bombing.

It's not his fault. It's not his fault....not his...fault...*sob*

SRSLY?  You saw none of the "Obama is behind this because he knows a scared population will allow him to take away more freedoms!" theories?  Because there's plenty of that spewing around and it's difficult to imagine you haven't seen it even once.

The only real piece of information here is that these guys are not international - they're Americans with funny-sounding names.

Is that confirmed?  I've been wondering about that but any source I've looked at seems to be avoiding any discussion of it altogether.

I wonder if Alex Jones will issue any sort of retraction.

This mofo exposed himself as the fraud he is in the past week claiming shiat like "OMG PATSY IS DEAD OMG THEY ARE GONNA BLAME THIS ON THE TEA PARTY OMG OMG OMG THEY ARE TRYING TO SELL A WAR WITH IRAN AND THEY ARE GONNA PUT THE BLAME ON THEM OMG THEY ARE GONNA START A WAR WITH NK SO THEY ARE GONNA PUT THE BLAME ON THEM OMG BUY GOLD"

FTA:  According to an article on Boston.com Tsarnaev, 19, received a $2,500 City Scholarship when he was a senior at the Cambridge Latin and Rindge School

Photo at top of page shows that it's the Cambridge Rindge and Latin School.

That's some mighty fine journalism there, Lou!

CBS News and NBC's Pete Williams reported that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev became an American citizen last year on September 11.

Which is an interesting choice of dates to become a citizen... And, I haven't heard that his brother became a citizen...

FWIW, I don't believe one can choose simply any date they wish to receive citizenship.  It's more along the lines of "Your application has been approved, our next Oath Ceremony will be on [X date], if that does not work for you then please call to reschedule ."

A schoolmate of the bombers was on morning schlock TV this morning. He didn't have a lot to say that would explain why they did it. No doubt they were not radicalized at the time he knew them.

There are a lot of disaffected, alienated young men in the world, from ostensibly happy families and prosperous backgrounds who wander into this sort of violent radicalization. Some are mentally ill, some are not. Some are angry and cut off, some seem to be well-socialized and sociable.

And now, thanks to the web, all of these guys can access instructions on how to make kitchen bombs that can kill or maim hundreds of people.

So much for the usefulness of handguns.

If a guy is willing to die for his cause, you haven't got a handle on him. You can only ensure that he does before or after his attack on society.

The Secret Agent by Joseph Conrad is a bit reactionary (Conrad moved sharply and quickly to the right as his novels became popular and he became prosperous and famous) but it has a fairly good grasp on the worst personality traits of would-be revolutionaries (vanity, hypocrisy, using politics as a way to chase skirts) but his portrait of the Professor, a man who hates the masses because they permit the power structure to exist and control, is probably the most scary bit. The Professor makes and distributes bombs to anybody who wants to attack society. He has no political position except hatred of people and power. And he can't be touched because he carries a bomb in his pocket and is ready to use it in a trice.

The Chief of the London Police meets him in an alley. They recognize each other. They pass each other. The Chief of Police is not a man who is prepared to die for a cause. He doesn't dare touch the Professor because he knows that means death for them both. Just a giant splat on the bricks and the paving stones or dirt.

True nihilism values nothing. But most men need a cause to die for and kill for or else they will go through life without any reason to kill or be killed.

Random religious nut-jobs and political cranks provide the cause the same way the Professor provides the bombs. There's nothing you can do but build resilience into society, so it doesn't freeze up and die when attacked.

I think shutting down Boston was a mistake. It spreads the terror instead of containing it. It seizes on fear and makes it into cowardice. It cost a farking shiat-load of money. Yes, the authorities would feel bad and be blamed, possibly sued, if anything happened, but you have to weigh probabilities and costs.

A local newspaper reported on a man with a rifle who caused an incident on the Queensway (401 Highway). This incident cost commuters and the city $1.5 million and it only lasted about 45 minutes.

Shutting down Boston for a day must cost many times that.
I don't think these two guys are part of a larger political cell. Al Qaeda always was a loose coalition and is now even looser since the senior leadership has been killed over and over again. I don't think there are likely to be any more bombs either. What you saw is what you got, and the police have rooted out perhaps a couple more bombs or will soon do so.

Al Qaeda is recruiting young Muslims (especially, but not exclusively I think) and giving them the equivalent of Script Kid kits to unleash mayhem. This is very, very asymetrical warfare, akin to resistance from an occupied population or small groups of guerillas rather than war.

The cure is more costly than the disease. It would be best to adopt the British Wartime motto of "Keep calm and carry on." The bombs fall randomly more or less. You can't run away from them without running into them. You can't drop everything and cower. Yes, you can sleep in the underground or your basement at night, build a bomb shelter, etc., but this too is a risk and a cost. Evaluate and minimize risks and costs.

Better to lose a few people from time to time and preserve a working society than to sacrifice society to terror wrought by random but fairly small casualties.

Buck up. Don't fark up. The old military slogan is good advice when you can't see the enemy for trees.

I have no clue what you mean by "used as a qualifying event for a lot of Olympic hopefuls".  It is not for the US team (in fact, none of the current US mens team ran this year), who earn it by placing at a seperate race.  Some countries select a team instead of having a race, and while they would consider all relevant times/places, Boston doesn't carry any special weight.

From Wiki:

In 1977, Cambridge High & Latin and the Rindge School of Technical Arts and were merged into Cambridge Rindge and Latin, or CRLS.
