Per Blurf's request, a place away from the tribute & condolences thread to post other stuff about the bombing or the bombers.

We put people in jail who yell jump at people standing on a bridge. When are we going to put radical preachers in jail for telling people to go out and murder in the name of a deity?

I am afraid that what happened in Boston is going to be hard to prevent in the future unless the American public becomes willing to forfeit most of the personal freedoms we have enjoyed for 237 years. I just hope the crazies never get hold of anything more devastating than what has already been used.

Bob -- I agree with you on this -- stuff happens -- and soft targets are just that -- soft targets.

Our government already proposes to let them all loose.
Against the wishes of the vast majority of the population.
But, that's Obamacide at work....you see, they freaking get to vote, too.

A catch-22 situation for the police?

Manhunt over



Tomorrow, that very same officer may be called a pig & spat upon, or maybe shot at or even injured.

It does make one wonder!

I can see it now, if Bush were still President:

Sir, it turns out the terrorists in Boston were Czechens.

Reply: Well then, lets bomb Prague.

Actually -- more likely if Palin were the boss.

Glenn, what seems to be the case (seems it is all rather speculative) is that the older brother became radicalized over time (heaven knows the Russians provided a great deal of impetus for Chechen radicalization), and that radicalization moved toward Islamic radicalization for the older brother, and he carried his younger brother along with him.

In the US there is at least some potential for Islamic radicalization as there is a fair sized Islamic population and you only need a handful. Of course there is an even larger potential these days for reactionary right wing radicalization and there are way too many groups organized and organizing in that turf.

Bob is not slaughtering the English language -- that isn't his native language, he speaks and writes Australian.

That is not a realistic answer to it all, and I suspect that you know that. We don't yet know the reason behind the Boston bombings, but I suspect that this is probably about right.

According to media accounts, Tsarnaev and his brother, Tamerlan, were Muslims who recently gravitated to a radical strain of Islam, going so far as to post Anti-American, jihadist videos on social-media sites. Both are thought to have as-yet-unprobed ties to a radical Muslim cleric hellbent on the destruction of the American way of life.
