    Regardless of whether or not you view the United States the same way people view women who "have it coming" with regards to rape, the reality is that "A jerk" is a perfectly okay term to label someone who attempted to indiscriminately kill civilians no matter the intent.
    Yes, but just labeling someone a jerk and ending the discussion at that is a failure on our part to even bother attempting to address why these things happen. And if we never bother to understand why, how are we ever going to stop this kind of behavior before it happens?

    "Welp, guys just a crazy murderer" isn't going to save Americans in the future.

    There really isn't much to discuss. HS logic is flawed and his action undefendable. As for he comparison with the US earlier, some of our logic was also flawed. And we did cause unnecessary harm. However, that in no way excuses a terrorist act.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    From the OP link
    "In the message, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev also proclaimed that an attack on one Muslim is an attack on all "

    Wonder how he reconciles the bombings going on in the middle east where muslims are killing each other?

    They have as much connection as the average American did to 9/11 victims.

    Nah. He should spend a lifetime in a cell with a very large fascist who hasn't seen a woman in 20 years.

    Perhaps you can explain your reasoning. That idiot couldn't even properly use the term "collateral damage". It is a term used to indicate killing of non-targeted people when striking a target. Clearly the people at the Marathon were the target, not collateral damage of striking another target.

    The key to stopping them is not understanding their motivations. It is understanding their belief system and using it against them. Also, they are an enemy, treat them as such and don't pussy foot around. Do an indepth study of their burial rituals and their beliefs on what is required for them to enter "heaven" and receive their rewards. If this leads to knowledge that certain rituals/rights must be observed, then deny those rights to anyone killed as an insurgent. Castrate all insurgent bodies. Douse our bullets in pig or other unclean animal blood so that they die unclean and cannot enter heaven. Show tolerance, understanding and help those who don't fight against us and treat those who become an enemy with utter and total disdain. If they want to do suicide bombings, make sure that when they do, parts of their bodies will always become unclean. Learn their ways and beliefs, then use it against them.
