    The Uncle says it all and spoke perfectly about this. They're losers and the chechens who have immigrated here, becoming good citizens, shouldn't be tarred by the actions of these two losers.

    Oh, wow, I can't believe you just said that!...LOL!!! Does that mean you're going to stop calling black folks, "African Americans"?

    Anyway, all that aside, I never said any of that. I'm only pointing out, that they are Muslims and evidently, they had some motivation to blow up American. Are they a part of a larger network? No one knows, at this point.

    I'm only challeging those who are, "schocked", that they're Chechen Muslims, which I'm sure has more to do with their disappointment that these dudes aren't white, Repulican, males, from one of the former Confederate states.

    I'll say it again: if you don't want to your comments to be questioned, don't make questionable comments.

    I was shocked they were Chechen...because we're never really had any issues with that country or it's people and they've largely been focused on russia more than the U.S.

    The fact they may be radical islamists isn't shocking to me, but the Chechen part is.

    They can't do that, because it would...*gasp*...violate his civil rights. The bleeding hearts would be raising nine-kinds-of-hell about it.

    My wife is native Russian and lived in St. Petersburg and Moscow for the first 30 years of her life. I was speaking with her just a little while ago and the fact that these guys are Chechen does not surprise her at all. Russia has a long history dealing with Muslim extremism that is rooted in this area of the country. To put it in her words: "It doesn't matter where they go in the world, they will always be crazy. They don't know anything else."

    This is a report on his twitter with responses from his (former) friends on twitter expressing shock: 'Stay Safe People': Here Is The Fugitive Boston Marathon Bombing Suspect's Twitter Account

    One of his tweets from the day of bombings: "Ain't no love in the heart of the city, stay safe people"
    Hard to gauge anything from a twitter account, a lot of it could be for show. Based on those tweets, he seemed far from an extremist Muslim, sounds tuned into western pop culture and doesn't seem to have much of a connection to Chechnya and Chechen politics except through heritage.

    Sounds like an extremely prejudiced take on a large group of people.

    I assume Marilyn is disappointed. And yes, I'm aware the perps are 'white' but I don't think that's what she had in mind. Just a guess on my part.

    Extremists blame everyone but white men for Boston bombings - Salon.com

    Perhaps if you had grown up in Russia and had any idea what you are talking about...
