Tsarnaev’s condition improves; brothers reportedly motivated by U.S. wars
Yahoo! News ^ | Tuesday, April 23, 2013 | Dylan Stableford

Posted on 04/23/2013 8:03:17 PM PDT by Jyotishi

Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev informed investigators that he and his brother were not directed by a foreign terrorist organization. Instead, they were “self-radicalized” and motivated to kill, in part, by U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Washington Post reported.

The 19-year-old also acknowledged his role in the attack while being questioned by investigators in his hospital bed, the report said. Tsarnaev, who has a gunshot wound to the throat and was sedated, responded in writing. He also suffered gunshot wounds in the head, neck, legs and hand during a late-night shootout in Watertown, Mass.

Isn't this the same thing that the Al Qaeda and Taliban Muzzies are always whining about? I'd say it's an Islam thing.

Well if he was motivated by US wars and Obama has been in charge of them for over four years then this is Obama’s Fault! If he had just kept his campaign promises these young men would not have committed these horrible acts! So it is safe to say, by extrapolation that Obama killed and maimed those poor people in Boston!

They weren’t only “self-radicalized” — there have been some references to this guy Misha who is a radical convert to Islam, and who is pointed to by a number of people as wielding enormous “religious” influence over Tamerlan in the past 3 years:

http://news.yahoo.com/bomb-suspect-influenced-mysterious-radical-202945456—politics.html

Given politically correct biases in the admin. and media etc. it is extremely important that pressures be exerted to find and closely examine this guy Misha!!

Whether or not Misha openly avowed terrorism, he seems clearly to have exerted a radical influence upon Tamerlan:

I refuse to be misinformed by “government investigators”. There is not one single “fact” that has come out since the first responders have been taken over by the politicians. It is now all political spin. The media is a national disgrace.

The mother said the older son called her (across the seas and after the bombing) and said "Everything is okay...thanks to allah".

Yes I believe the parents were both happy muslims to hear of the successful bombing.

Funny how momma and poppa went back to their home country last year after being here ten years. Who does that?? Notice they never became citizens.

If the U.S. wars in Afghanistan and Iraq bothered them so much, why did they take so long for them to be motivated to act? This is nothing but a big crock of shiite.

I thought the POS father was planning on flying to the U.S. Claimed he wanted answers about his son's death from the cops. I'd like to know who in the State Dept. is planning to approve that trip.

The U.S. has been in dozens of countries over the years pounding the wardrums, and are in foreign lands even today. Why is it nobody else EVER came to our shores to engage in jihad? Only those involved in the cult of isalami.

My first impression was the “Bush’s fault” angle too, but on a more serious note, who here can actually fathom that a decade after the atrocities of 9/11 that we’d be seeing people with legs blown off in a major city, and the government actually goes out of their way to minimize it, explain it away, and use it as a convenient excuse to negatively self-introspect of our own society? Bizzaro-world doesn’t even come close.

Hey she likes to cook!

BTW, CNN is reporting grief counselors have been called to the hospital room.

The White House spokesperson said this was not out of the ordinary for prisoners who’ve lost loved ones.

I see the "Talking Points" are out....it's not Mulim Jihad against "The Infidels", but now is "Blame Bush" and "America had it coming".

How about the towel-headed camel-humpers' zeal for killing ALL non-belevers, and doing it via bombing in public places? Just because the Messiah is a Muslim-suckup and Muslim himself, puts American Christians at-risk, and the "Kumbaya Diplomacy" doesn't work at all with these Muslim bastards.

Yep, if the Gang of Eight succeeds in carrying Zero’s water—with Marco doing a lot of the `heavy lifting’ lately—we’re going to find ourselves in the same boat with Europa:
With an aging population, after importing `cheap’ labor, eventually `labor’ figured out the welfare system, and they—and their several wives and extended families—are all on the dole.

And usually it’s the most vociferous hot-heads, taking tax dollars with one hand while clenching a fist with the other: the ambitious mullahs and their ilk demanding sharia law, etc. After coming here for the (clearing throat) `American Dream.’

Further, they tend to be younger and grievance-minded as well, like the Tsarnaev brothers. Yeah, CAIR & Co.—and the Wahhabi branch at 1600 Pennsylvania: “Hey let’s not be rash/rush to judgment/”—have figured out that whole `phobia’ thang.
If you object to Americans being torn to shreds on our streets, well, then there must be something wrong with you.
We’ve already had some of the same yahoos who were eager to pin this on, well ... us, now wagging their heads with concern for the safety of the ROP’ers ... Incredible. Like dogs to their own vomit.
And thanks for that `phobia’ B.S., by the way homos .... they hate you too, but with a consuming passion, while we were are pretty much, “Live and let live. But shut up already.”

I understand the (almost) comprehensible portions of the new & improved `comprehensive immigration reform’ bill will allow the perpetually disgruntled new `Americans’ (albeit, on double secret probation) to sponsor family, shirt-tail-relatives and friends as well.

Yeah, the USA needs more Tsarnaevs—like Custer needed more Sioux and Cheyenne.
Keep diggin’, Marco. We’re taking careful notes.

First time I hear about head and hand. I thought it was one leg, now it's two. Maybe the next time there's a report, they'll add "torso".
