the bombers are Muslims and in some shape or fashion conducted terrorism for some reason.
All terrorists are Muslims, except the 94% which aren't...

It's an interesting phenomenon, that most of those supposed terrorists come from well to do upper or middle class families. Bin Laden&Friends, Mohammed Atta&Friends, underpants bomber, now the Boston guys, etc.

One would assume the radicalization is correlated to socio-economic conditions, but apparently they are not...

Highly convenient for the Russians now that Americans have a reason to hate Chechens.

KGB false flag operation maybe? Set up a couple of naive disaffected Chechen kids to think they are making an Islamic strike.......

What do you get? Public pressure in America to let Russia off the leash and indulge in its military solution in Chechen. After all, both Russia and the USA has the same enemies now....

So what happens when the suspect goes to ground and keeps off the streets (as instructed by the Police) or tops himself in some secluded location?

Could take weeks to find him . . .

Don't know how that can be as the KGB ceased to exist over 20 years ago.

Picked this up from Russia Today.....

17:21 GMT: Dzhokhar Tsarnaev [Joggers are naive], 19, became an American Citizen on Sept. 11, 2012, CBS reported.
You couldn't make this up - oh, hang on.

Food for thought.

Yes I know it's the BBC, but shows the danger of crowd-sourced private investigation.

I'd be more inclined to believe the older brother was a first-rate loser just like his uncle said, sat around watching the movie Four Lions too many times, then convinced his younger brother they should strike a blow for....whatever.

The leaders seem to come from upper or middle class families
who then radicalize the lower socio economic levels who are /
might be more easily turned ?

Absolutely.

"Food for thought.

Which brings me back to the question I posed before to try to circumvent this
type of thing, although the media should be kicked in the backside.

"I wonder if in future the FBI / Police or whatever at the very beginning
of an incident like this will now come out and say that what the Official
channels of information are - which web site, which PPRuNe feed,
which facebook page.

And hold more regular briefings - with the objective of stopping
the wild media speculation.

Will be interesting to see if they change the MO."

500N:

Spot on.

If anyone cares to, they can go back through this thread to my original post where I insinuated my belief that the marathon bombing might well be another case of radical Islam. I believe in the coming days and weeks my insinuation will be proven correct.

These two pieces of shit did not do this by themselves. Somewhere there was a support network involved. And it needs to be identified. As much as some of us might wish to see the younger culprit suffer the same fate as his older brother, I do not. I want to see him brought into custody and be compelled to sing like a canary. Using any and all methods in order for him to do so. This needs to be investigated back to the source. These two were merely pawns/stooges. The big player(s) lies elsewhere.

Yes, I would like to see him caught, not killed - well not yet anyway.
Also agree that every method available should be used to make him
talk, even if they have to ship him to another country to do it, not that
I think it will be allowed.

Re the Media article from the BBC
I can't believe the media published "persons of interest" photos
based on social media speculation, although I think the FBI should
have come out earlier and told the media to stop until the FBI provided
more info - because as soon as they released the photos, social media
worked really well.

So what I am saying is the FBI / Police need to channel all this
effort and energy in the right direction.

All sounds a bit "Bob Lee Swagger" to me.

I think flyMD's post was trying to put a comparison between Bagdad and Boston.

His allusion falls over due to:-

The bombs in Bagdad are Sunni against Shi'ite and vice versa, always will be, and not an outsider acting in a way to shock. The Afghan is normally Taliban against any foreigner who is not Muslim. This from people who hold human life as valueless, Allah is the guiding force.

The Boston bombs appear to be designed to shock, but unless they manage to apprehend the perp and question him the reason may never be truly known.

Much of the American media is lamenting that the bombers are Muslims and in some shape or fashion conducted terrorism for some reason.

They so hoped it'd be some white guy with a grudge against the government.

Now they are already offering excuses - "he didn't have any friends..."

I don't think the media would be seeking excuses if the bomber was white and male.
How dark and twisted are the spectacles through which you view your country Mr Brickhistory !

Let's hope he does not get "caught in the crossfire"

Quite a large force of men and equipment from many branches of security lined up against one 19 year old.

Whilst I realise they all like to get into the act, it looks decidedly like a case of "overkill"

Oops, you know what I mean

They've been searching for him for more than 12 hours and still haven't found him. So I don't think it is overkill.
