    "Islam is not a religion, nor is it a cult. In its fullest form, it is a
    complete, total, 100% system of life. Islam has religious, legal, political, economic, social, and military components. The religious component is a board (sic?) for all of the other components. Can a good Muslim be a good American? Democracy and Islam cannot
    co-exist. Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or autocratic." A Muslim terrorist is not fighting for his freedom, he is fighting to destroy your freedom, your life, your country.

    I guess it was pure coincidence I correctly guessed the religious background of these terrorists.

    But they're Muslims. So we'll downplay that as much as possible.


    Could please explain the difference between a "Muslim" terrorist,
    and a "Christian" terrorist,
    or a "Palestenian" terrorist,
    or a "Irish" terrorist?

    Because those of us who are not bigots think a terrorist is just a terrorist.

    "Adding insult to injury, the other bomber, little brother Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, was rewarded with American Citizenship on September 11, 2012, in Boston, according to JW's source. The 19-year-old, who is still on the run, was granted asylum in Arlington Virginia on September 27, 2002, JW's source reveals." (comment - all fake,undercover fronts)

    "Years before these Chechen terrorists carried out the Boston Marathon bombings, Judicial Watch uncovered critical intelligence documents detailing al Qaeda's activities in Chechnya, including the creation of a 1995 camp-ordered by Osama bin Laden-to train "international terrorists" to carry out plots against Americans and westerners." (Now we know.)

    Irrespective of the UT element, I think this article is interesting as it provides more background information about one of the alleged perpetrators of the Boston bombing.

    It concerns me though, the 24/7 coverage of those who commit these types of attacks.

    Prejudice is an ugly disorder. It leads to conclusions based on emotion and anger, not facts. It enables those afflicted with it to dehumanize other people, to justify their hate, which leads to dysfunctional behavior, like terrorism.

    With the thousands locked into their homes in fear of the other killer let's hope that most have a gun in the house for their own safety and protection.

    I was worried that they weren't going to find a Utah connection. I'm so glad they did. I was on the edge of my seat waiting to hear what the Utah connection was. I'm also glad that it's more of a connection than the last story's "he uses the letters A, H, T, and U when he writes" connection.

    " . . there is of yet any evidence proving they were indeed Muslim . . ."


    Didn't you read this story? The DNews and all mainstream news agencies have reported all morning they are indeed Muslim. Even your mothership at MSNBC's website reported several hours ago that "the family is Muslim."

    Maybe you'd better check in for your new talking points.

    I guess since you did not correctly guess their background which you said was middle eastern and they are Russian and the fact that there is of yet any evidence proving they were indeed Muslim means NO there is no coincidence here just your bias showing again.

    I guess it was pure coincidence I correctly guessed the religious background of these terrorists.

    I was told on these boards many times yesterday I was wrong and that it was likely a right wing crazy.

    You better believe if these were NRA card carrying Christians, that would be the focus of this story in the liberal media.

    But they're Muslims. So we'll downplay that as much as possible.

    Perhaps it's possible he "radicalized" in Utah.

    Seems to be a central hot-bed of "radicalism" and "extremeism" in general.
    That's why.

    bribri86 - You don't like articles like this because they challenge your notion that "bad" people and "good" people are neatly separated into tidy categories. At this point, no one knows why these young men did what they did. This is why the notion that all we need are "good guys" with guns to keep us safe is just feel-good, fear-monger, money-making propaganda for the gun industry. Not one of us has a guarantee of safety or survival. The best antidote to "bad" people is to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ and do unto our neighbors as we wish they would do unto us. The rest is just agency.

    I don't like articles like this. Who cares that this terrorist had any ties to Utah. I don't think that's something to be proud of or even newsworthy. Either way, it's almost as obscure as a Las Vegas newspaper writing "the dead Boston terrorist identified Nevada on a map in Elementary School in a geography bee."
