    Opposite here.

    Sad and scared first, then angry, and now furious.

    They were here as long as five years ago and by all definitions were unrooted, did not make many friends, and felt isolated, shut out (per their internet rants) so this most likely was misdirected adolescent rage that simply found an outlet in Islamic extremism. This isn't something they thought out very carefully.

    I don't mean to humanize them in any way, but let's not give islamic extremism any more power than it deserves. The reality is that Islamic extremism is a very small group of people, and a very small, radical, fringe element of Islam.

    PP - Suspect #2 is supposedly a student at UMass-Dartmouth so if he is indeed a student over there, I would like to think that he had friends. FWIW - his father also thinks that he is a medical student even though UMass-Dartmouth has no medical school.

    I agree with everything you said. I just put much much greater blame on the ones that preach extremism than these misled youth that went out to kill and die for it.

    I've literally never seen so many logical fallacies committed in ten words than I do here. To respond to your irrelevant question, Hitler was a monster. That doesn't mean that we should excuse and feel sorry for the SS.

    I don't care about formal logic here, you know my point. I don't wish to continue this bickering with you.

    Ok - CNN has done something right. They are able to confirm that Suspect #2 was a UMass-Dartmouth student. Damn.....That hits close to home.

    I'm guessing he was pre-med, then, and the father doesn't understand the unusual US distinction of having undergrad before med school.

    Tamerlan Tsarnaev flew in and out of JFK airport last yr was out of U.S. for 6 months

    Andrea Mitchell, MSNBC News, confirmed twitter account

    ---

    so maybe there was some foreign training involved, if not financial backing (which seems like there couldn't have been $$$ support, since they were left to rob a 7/11 and steal a car)

    May be irrelevant, really, when you consider the amount of destruction that even a small number of adherents can inflict. In the end, relevance will be determined by the frequency of these attacks and the citizens' tolerance for watching their loved ones choose between jumping out of a burning skyscraper instead or burning alive or having to watch their kids slaughtered while attending kindergarten (e.g. Beslan school massacre).
