what ties to radical islam are there, exactly? The older brother got pissy and used religion as a means to an end. He didn't receive teachings from any jihadist imam, he didn't go out and proclaim that Allah's way is the only way. He was a very devote Muslim that did terrible things but one did not cause the other.

You've got a legitimate issue with his mental stability, that's good, we all have questions about his stability, but if you're going to blame radical Islam as reason for the bombings, than you're an idiot and don't actually care about the real reasons for it, you just want to kill brown people because they're different than you.

hardinparamedic: Amos Quito: Thanks for the clarification.

143 people PER DAY is a LOT of people - over 53 thousand per year.

Strangely when I look at the FBI Murder Statistics for 2010, I see 6,284 victims for the entire year - or about 17 per day.

Nothing to brag about, to be sure, but a far cry from the 143 you mentioned earlier.

Maybe you're using a different source - or maybe a different definition of "die from violent crimes"?

/Further clarification appreciated

I think the CDC is using different qualifiers, then.They pull violent death statistics from death certificates, not from crime reports.



Ah, I see. The misunderstanding arose from your use of the term "violent CRIME", and the CDC does not require "criminal intent" when they're categorizing "violent DEATHS". A dude could be hit in the head and killed by a stray golf ball and the CDC would call that a "violent death".

So you can see how that "143 per day" figure might be just a TAD misleading - not saying that you had "BAD INTENT", you understand. ;-)


hardinparamedic: They also count suicide as a violent death, so even subtracting from that the 2010 statistics gave 16,000 deaths from violence in the US. That's around 40 or so per day in the US.



Yeah, well, calling suicide "violent death" is a bit of a stretch, IMO. And it is certainly not a "violent CRIME" - or at least those who are successful are rarely prosecuted.


hardinparamedic: On the other hand, it should be something to say that we have more violent death than a country undergoing active insurgency.



Well, to be fair, the article didn't count all "violent DEATHS" in Iraq - just those related to bombings, battles and other violent CLASHES.

And it would also be unfair to do a number count comparing Iraq to the US - considering that Iraq is roughly comparable the size and population of California, which, as you know, is tiny compared to the US as a whole.

I wonder: how many people committed suicide in Iraq today?

Everything you said sounds like excuses for islam. It wasn't that he was infatuated with his islamic culture, it was that he was persecuted and excluded from ours! It wasn't that he gave up boxing because momma carpet bower said it wasn't islamic, it was because we didn't bend over backwards and let him on the olympic team! IT MUST BE OUR FAULT, NOT HIS!

fark you and apologetics like you, making excuses for shiat heels like this who kill in the name of islam.


If you honestly stick your neck out there and try to make friends and they reject you (as humans often do) then do you not have some sort of legitimacy in being pissed that you're trying and yet they still won't accept you?

Not once did I say that it was our fault. I never apologized for the bombing, I never said we deserved it. I said that the links between what happened and radical islam are non existent at best. I said that you trying to link the two was a whole lot of bullshiat because nothing connects the two outside of  maybe circumstantial evidence (he may have gone to a website about bomb making, which happens to be published by AQ. Btw, did you know that White Supremacists link to said bomb making article too? Are they radical Islamics as well?)

The two of them committed a terrible act, but your reasoning for why they did it is unfounded or goes in the face of all the evidence to the contrary put out there. The guy had dreams and had them crushed, you'd be pissed too if someone crushed your dreams without regard for you. I doubt (or at least hope) you wouldn't start killing people, but this guy thought otherwise and his brother was stupid enough to sympathize enough to join him.

islam is not an inherently bad religion, which you'd understand if you bothered to look at history instead of picking and choosing which sections to know about.

the world needs less of your kind, because your kind breeds ignorance, fear and hatred, all of which come back to kill innocents and make you double down on your stupidity and fear.

Same applies here. Islam was a personal justification, maybe, but they didn't go out killing people because of "Jihad" or 72 virgins. The older brother got pissed that he was isolated in his adoptive country and snubbed for a chance at an olympic boxing match. This is no different than Columbine, but with less "flag wavin' americans" and guns.

jshine: The "Islam is evil" argument is facile (as are most news articles from Fox News), but so is arguing that religion is irrelevant. There is obviously a violence problem in many Islamic countries that appears to draw motivation and strength from religion. Its certainly a small minority, but even a small percentage of a billion people is a big problem. Religion (and culture, since the two are intimately intertwined) is definitely a factor here.

Without reading too much of this thread, I'm not sure where you stand on the issue (so I may be arguing with you or agreeing with you), but that's my $0.02.


I think we're discussing in tandem. It's not that religion is irrelevant in general--it's very relevant--but it is in this particular instance; and can be in any given instance. People who are angry often find other people who are angry like them; people who are violent often find justifications for their violence; sometimes it comes together in one place and time. But sometimes not. Some angry people never become violent; some violent people are just violent or criminal with no real motive. Some people--as it seems in this case, based on the scanty evidence--are angry but need some kind of motive before they can act. So Tamerlan Tsarnaev was angry with America for Iraq and other wars, and wanted to do something, but felt like he couldn't just act out without some OTHER rationale. That rationale was Islam--but it could have been something else. Obviously, he wasn't just a mad psychopath, or killing for Islam generally--he could have stayed in Chechnya if he wanted to do that. But he was violent first, and then turned to Islam for his justification.

However, some people join a group or cause first, and then become violent, soldiers if you like. Once they've become part of the movement, THEN they start moving on to shooting, bombing, killing. They have the motivation, but need the violence. So it's not that religion isn't relevant; but it's not the cause, I guess, is my theory.

Uh, what?

Violent Death involves Criminal Acts.



CDC:

"The person using the force or power need only to have intended to use force or power; he or she need not to have intended to produce the consequence that actually occurred. "Physical force" should be interpreted broadly to include the use of poisons or drugs. The word "power" includes acts of neglect or omission by one person who has control over another. Examples of violent deaths include homicides and suicides."

I DONT GIVE A shiat ABOUT CHRISTIANITY. BUT BUT BUT CHRISTIANS DOESN'T WORK ON ME, IM A NON-BELIEVER.

Now, can you stop trying to shift attention away from the culture at hand onto another one because Islam is so god damn undefendable you have to shift blame?


No, because Islam and Christianity are irrelevant variables. Both religions' texts have parts advocating peace and parts advocating genocide and slavery. Both religions have had horrific things done in their name, and amazingly good things done in their name.

The relevant variable is extremism. Extreme Christians terrorized Europe, Asia, South America and basically wherever they could get to for centuries, while the Islamic world was making immense strides in scientific knowledge. Ireland, Uganda, Bosnia...all are recent, if not current, victims of Christian terrorism. Just because, at the moment, Islamic terrorism (even if most of it could be considered more guerilla warfare than traditional terrorism) is more prominent doesn't mean the religion itself is evil.

You seem intent on demonizing a billion people because of the actions of a few thousand at best. That is what we call, among other things, 'bigoted'.

I hate people who kill in the name of everything and not just those who kill in the name of Islam like you seem to do.

I have issue with Islam because i have studied it, have knowledge of it, and have seen its effect on the world. It is a plague, a horrible primitive theocratic movement that drags every single culture it infects back 600 years. It makes property of women, it destroys historical sites of whatever culture it infects, it destroys the personal rights of all people under its totalitarian cloak, and it abuses and destroys animals it finds unclean. It is a god damn mental illness of the highest order. ANYONE, anyone who values any sort of personal liberty, human rights, animals rights, or religious freedom should look good and hard at what islam does to whatever country it gets a foot hold in, and instantly begin fighting against it and doing your best to keep it out of whatever place you hold dear.

The irony of course is that one could say the same about Christianity, especially during the Dark Ages.

Whether it was intentional or not, it was still a very funny post.

The major difference being, christianity during the dark ages...happened in the dark ages. Islam during the dark ages is still happening now.

Christians do do horrible things in the name of christ. You also need to remember that the epicenter of the Muslim world (Middle east) is more or less the focal point of western aggression. We specifically target Muslims for extra frisking at airports because we've developed a fear of them that has no basis in reality.

Every domestic terrorist attack in the country, barring the Boston attack, was carried out by christians. You know why? Because Christians make up a majority of the population here. The Norway shooting/bombing a couple years back? That was a radical christian.

We have Christians kill and maim everyday in this country, we just don't make a stink about their religion because most of the country is Christian so it's "probably a mental disorder they're suffering"

aspAddict: Then there was the article that stated they let the driver go


I am currently sitting next to three naturalized citizens. Two from Taiwan, one from Thailand. One of them has an accent that is almost impenetrable. But she is still a citizen.

How would the bomber know that the Chinese guy in the SUV wasn't American?


aspAddict: Also, it's not that much of a leap to tie these guys to "radical Islam"


They weren't dressed in proper Islamic clothing.
They didn't have the proper facial hair.
They alegedly drank alcohol and ignored several other basic prohibitions of their faith.

They weren't fundamentalist or radical.
What they were was angry.

They perceived that their self-identifed "community" was, rightly or wrongly, under attack by the "other", and they wanted to inflict damage on the "other" for revenge.

It's a basic, common motivation for humans, and one that the US has consistently reacted with shock to when we experience blowback from it.

The attempted underwear bomber:

"I had an agreement with at least one person to attack the United States in retaliation for US support of Israel and in retaliation of the killing of innocent and civilian Muslim populations in Palestine, especially in the blockade of Gaza, and in retaliation for the killing of innocent and civilian Muslim populations in Yemen, Iraq, Somalia, Afghanistan and beyond, most of them women, children, and noncombatants."

first off, younger brother was a Umass Dartmouth student (my alma mater), secondly the older brother was a very good boxer from what's been said (3 time gold glove winner) and wanted to compete in the olympics. It's not out of the realm of possibility that this was a symbolic attack to him for being snubbed for that chance at the olympics. Why else bomb the finish line and not the start? Why else would you bomb something that most of these people have been training for for years? Dude had inferiority issues.

atomicmask: Yeah, no ties at all...Besides them stating it was due to islam, they were disgusted with western culture and didn't get it, and the whole al quada published magazine they read to get the ideas of how to make the bombs, but besides all of that proof there was NO ties to radical islam..


The older brother had very much been isolated before getting heavily into Islam. He despised our celebrating of material gluttony. He also had no friends and was snubbed a chance to compete on the world stage to represent America at the Olympics. Now, if you have no friends, no more connection to a place, your dreams all dashed, you'd feel pretty on edge, would you not? The guy was completely isolated. The motives for the attack, the symbolism, it was all a big "fark you" to the people that wronged him. Islam can be used as a reason after the fact, but there's nothing that has him proclaiming that Allah is great and he dies for Allah. He did this because he's a lonely motherfarker with a wife and kid and nothing else.

His baby brother got in on it because he supported his brother, but he was as lapse a Muslim as you could find. Both partied hard, the younger one was a massive stoner. There is more actual evidence pointing to the motives being based in the older brother's increasing sense of isolation and persecution.

but hey, let's rachet up the persecution of a religion and people you don't understand. It's not like it'll bite you in the ass later, right?

That's because the tie to radical Islam is tenuous at best, but the butthurt these guys seem to have felt because they didn't get things handed to them is palpable. They are closer to teabaggers than Al Qaeda.HORSESHIAT. The elder brother went to Russia and got indoctrinated by the radicals there to do this attack. The Russian government warned us he was trouble. This has NOTHING to do with the TEa Party. Nothing. Keep humping that chicken, dude.Right-wing Christian lunatics bomb abortion clinics/murder doctors/bomb the Olympics/shoot up 'liberal' churches: Well, they're just lone wolves, and we shouldn't jump to conclusions and LOOK A MUSLIM!Christian radical attacks are trivial in scope and frequency compared to the Muslim attacks worldwide that happen on a DAILY basis. I'm really getting tired of Farkers equating the two. They are NOT the same.

Brick-House: Thankfully, there are other ways to get the word out.  But of course, suubby is missing the point.  This like the Abortion Murder Doctor Trail is not being acurrately covered by the main stream media because it doesn't mesh with the left's view of the world.

The main stream media has an "Ignore it, and it will go away" mentatiality when it comes to issues like this. And the list is long on stories that do not recieve adequate coverage.


If only the right-wing had a cable news network that sympathized with their cause and could help get these stories out there.

/realizes this is part of Fox News's business strategy...hell this is part of News Corp's strategy for everything

Kibbler: Well to be fair, that was Faux News "opinion" rather than "news."  It's where they just come right out and say what they imply 24/7 during the "news."


I seriously think it's an FTC problem.  They are falsely advertising their services.  I have no problem with their existence, but being called "Fox News" is wrong.  I've always jokingly said it should be "Fox News Entertainment," but, seriously, they should be called "Fox OpEd" or "Fox Current Events" or something OTHER than news because they are not presenting journalism.

FTFA: What it all adds up to, is a media so obsessed with feeling good about themselves, that America can't have a conversation about the dangers of radical Islam.

Because the average American doesn't really know jack shiat about Islam or radical Islam other than they are synonyms for "boogeyman".

this is a marketing/ promotion technique called differentiation.  They are trying to attract viewers away from CNN by showing how their coverage is different and superior to their competitor.  That's all it is.

The cause of the Boston bombings was bombs. I thought this had been discussed, complete with the requisite bad-taste-joke from a state-level GOP dickfark (named Stasi Stacy, of all things) over it.

Now, if you want to delve into the motivations of the bombers, we can stop the train at station 1 ("Radical Islam"), station 2 ("pissed about Afghanistan/Iraq"), station 3 ("social isolation"), station 4 ("CTE"), station 5 ("they're Yankee fans/they hate runners") or station 6 ("more info needed").

// station 4 is where the hobos hang out, and it smells like Alex Jones and pee
// also, avoid pod 6
// ...damn jerks

Yeah, of course it was fueled by radical Islam. So what?

Radical Christianity anyone? Should we discriminate against Christians?

I'm down for disciminating against both sects of religion, or all religion, if that's what we want. Lets not get anecdotal here, you might not like the results.
