    Boston Bombers

    Just a side note here:  Before the media knew who the suspects were, there was a subtle message coming from the media; that this may be a "right wing" deal. 

    I hope someone call them on it.

    Chechnya muslims.  How will they re-spin this?

    They were radical muslims as I suspected. No matter what any muslim says, they hate the United States.

    I assumed it was some right wing nut myself. Mostly because of the poison letters that showed up the next day. Once I heard that it was unrelated I figured it was something other than a crazy American. I feel awful for their family. This is not only tragic for the USA but also for their parents and family. Many muslims are good people. These weren't just muslims. They were radicals.

    Suggesting it was right-wing wackos (which was entirely possible) is no more or less irresponsible than suggesting it was Muslims (which not many people seem to have a problem with). If you want to call them on something, call them on all of it.

    I want to know why Radicals hate America.
    It sounds very elementary but if you don't like us, don't come here.
    We have enough problems.
    But really what is it that they want.
    If they claim they want the American Dream, they were living it.
    They weren't starving. They were educated.
    I sure am glad I'm not trying to figure out what to do with this 19 year old.
    He's probably not going to recover from his injuries. So what do we do pay for him to live out his life in a hospital ward in jail forever?
    We need to think of Ethical ways to deal with any one who causes terror on America.
    I guess he will get his day in court, but I hope if he survives he is punished.
    But maybe he being punished.
    It bothers me this country has to be big daddy to the whole world.
