    Hmmm... he had no American friends, didn't understand them, and blew them up... yeah, maybe I was a bit quick to conclude he hated Americans.

    Don't go so overboard with being PC that you lose the ability to think rationally. These guys were/are Muslim extremists, any way you slice it. The fact that anyone believes that that it is somehow insensitive to state this fact out loud is a poor reflection on our society, in my opinion.

    You said that he stated he "hated Americans" in his own words. He didn't.

    You know? I was in this thread with several others early this morning and in terms of interactions with one another, it was snark free and good faith conversation. It's a shame that that had to go.

    To be honest, I'd say I'm shocked at this being a Chechen Muslim. They're not really into blowing up Westerners as much as their Arab/African counterparts.

    I was the first one in those threads to post those quotes. I know what he said. I also didn't say that he said he "loved them". I said that he didn't say he "hated" them as another poster claimed. Why is it so important for you and others to come into this thread with such attitudes? Jesus Christ. Most of us are coming at this from a good faith angle.

    They do have a history of blowing up civilians, though.

    I think it is a natural conclusion for anyone to rationally come to, considering that these two planted bombs to injure, maim, and or kill as many Americans as possible, including the older one placing the bomb he had right next to two children, that he does not like, or 'hates' Americans.

    Jesus Christ, yourself.

    Good faith went out the window when the bombs detonated. If it will make you feel better, we could temper the hate by saying that they dispassionately and indiscriminately murdered and maimed nearly two hundred innocents. Feel better?

    Let me repeat this: I wasn't debating that it was a "natural conclusion." I was debating the assertion that the bomber said, in his own words, that he "hates Americans." He didn't say that. Other people such as yourself concluded it.

    But are you surprised he was a Muslim?
