    I'm not interested in the results of whatever caused it, but the CAUSE.

    In other words, blowing up the boston marathon...is old news to me. What I want to know is, was this an attack carried out by "useful idiots" for a larger cause, like one terrorist group or another, or was this just one dude on a mission? And if it was the former, when and where did this kid hook up with another organization, and how? If it was the later, where did he get grenades? Ebay?

    I heard, specifically, the word grenade, used. Not improvised explosive device, which is what you make with hardware store supplies.

    So April 15th was a hallmark day in Russia-Chechen relations but beyond that these attacks carried no symbolism whatsoever. In short, this was a non-sensical attack by people totally whacked in the brain that carried no symbolism whatsoever really. People just killed because they could.

    Given that he and his brother are responsible for a terrorist attack in the USA, I think his comment, "I do not have a single American friend, I don't understand them" and his expressions of disgust with American culture are perhaps a bit more intense than whatever disgust your or I have with American culture.

    That said, this is just a theory based on some information we have about one of the bombers. It might be nothing and I'm not interested in arguing.

    Islamic extremists have been promoting lone wolf attacks on U.S. events and describing ways to do it for several years. Many of them feel it is the most effective way to conduct Jihad. Larger plans are more likely to be discoverd. Do a search for "Inspire" magazine.

    As a side note, we don't know if they are "islamic extremists" at this point. A former higher up in the Dept. of Homeland Security made it clear that it's too earlier to draw firm conclusions on that.
