    You're probably right - I only just checked out their friends reactions.

    I'll stay with strangest ideologically motivated terrorist attack of all time or strangest socially motivated mass murder attack of all time.

    In a word - strange.

    No, you said your wife was not surprised that these guys were Chechen because Russia has a long history of dealing with Muslim extremists who are crazy wherever they go. In other words, your quote reads like your wife is generalizing Chechens as Muslim extremists. Is that not what she meant? If not, it's all good.

    We're getting off topic though...

    What was the explosion? Did they ever say? It might have been a blowout on a garbage truck. That's purdy loud.

    Yeah, I refuse to come to any conclusions about their motives because all the details are painting an odd picture.

    Certainly understandable for anyone from Russia to feel that way. Remember this. Had this happened in the US I would guess a majority of Americans would feel the same way.

    The thread's title says gunshots and explosion. That's all I know for certain. I'm hoping they have more information that I do!

    Some talk of controlled detonations of devices they had found at the suspects' location.

    That was last night, yes? Now, we're talking 12+ hours.

    There would still be that vocal minority that would say that it is society's fault.
