Russia/Chechnya wasn't high on my list but that's been a volatile area for centuries. Although it seems as though at least one of the brothers was a US citizen and that they've been here for a decade, but never really understood or fit in with US culture. Time will tell how much their faith influenced their behavior.
I hope the younger brother is caught alive. I don't feel there will be justice* if he dies.
*EDIT: Or understanding. Justice is one thing, but if we don't learn the actual reasons why people are driven to do these things we're less likely to thwart similar behaviors.
Your logic is as ill formed as your surfboards.
I saw an interview with a friend of the younger brother. He said they were "normal" and seemed very wel adjusted. He wrestled in high scool and got a scholarship to wresle in college... Said he went to parties, smoked weed and was friendly....
I think the older brother became part of a "radical" group and recruited his brother..
I hope they catch him alive too. So he can give a reason why they did it. Then I hope they blow his arms and legs off and let him live for a year or two (with no pain killers). To feel a little of the pain he caused.. And then euthanize him like the animal he is.
Yeah, you're probably right. A 2009 quote I saw from the older brother was, "I don’t have a single American friend, I don’t understand them.” Chechnya and the Caucasus Mtns are such a messed up place right now that the bombings are going to give Putin a reason to crack down even harder (and that man's already ruthless) on the separatist movements as the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi approach.
There are links in some news stories to a Russian language social media page of one of the brothers. Expanding the comments and using Google to translate the page showed many recent posts from people in that area of the world who agreed with the bombing. Not everybody, but lots. Good times... good times...
In other news, we're all going to get a good shot of swell this weekend and next week... hope you all catch some bombs. Too soon?
