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.
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
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."
2016: NONE OF THE ABOVE
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.
