    Suspect: Boston bombing was payback for hits on Muslims

    Boston Marathon bombing victims were collateral damage in a strike meant as payback for U.S. wars in Muslim lands, the surviving suspect wrote in a message scribbled on the boat where he was found hiding, a law enforcement source told CNN Thursday.

    In the message, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev also proclaimed that an attack on one Muslim is an attack on all and said he would not miss older brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev -- who died after a firefight with police three days after the bombing -- because he would soon be joining him, according to the source.

    I hope he's on suicide watch then. I want him to have a very long and very healthy life just like Dr. Hasan.

    When you bomb someone's country and kill innocent people, some of them are going to hate you. Even if the bombings came with "good intentions" like killing terrorists or insurgents. It just doesn't matter to the parents of dead children, or their neighbors, or their friends.

    He'll be joining his brother. After a nice long stay in a maximum security prison. I'm sure he'll have a wonderful time with the inmates there.

    Well, now he'll get raped, abused, and disrespected like so many women in the culture he loves so much in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    I don't think he was calling him a jerk for being upset.

    He needs to spend his life in the hole with nothing but food and those little poppers you get in the box...you know, those things in white paper you throw at the ground and other people that let out a teeny little "pop". He can declare jihad on the prison floor.

    It would be a bit more understandable if he actually had any sort of connection to those who have been killed in our wars in the middle east. However, with these two bombers I'm just not buying it. With both of them I see two individuals who struggled to integrate into American society, decided to blame their failure to do so on the very country that took them in and found the radical Islam cause to validate their position.

    I also suspect he wouldn't respond to his upset state of mind by attempting to murder random Saudi civilians either.

    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.

    True. But my response would not be bombings that targeted mostly unrelated civilians and definitely not targets with a high probability of killing children. I use unrelated in this case to indicate they are mostly have little to do with policy. Little being that other than being of a group the supports or votes for the officials who order the bombings, they have no other relationship to the officials.

    If someone bombed a gathering of a group that supports Obama, who, as commander and chief is responsible for the strikes, then it would at least have some, maybe not much, validity, as long as the possibility of children being collateral damage was minimal. It would certainly be more understandable than something like the Boston bombing.

    Casualty numbers just to make the media wouldn't be one of my considerations. It is not the number of casualties that matters but the quality of the casualties. Using your theoretical example, adult members of the Royal Family there and adults that influence the government, sure. Some construction workers out for a day in the park with their families, never.
    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.
