What We Know About Boston Marathon Bomb Suspects Dzhokhar And Tamerlan Tsarnaev
buzzfeed.com ^ | April 19, 2013

Posted on 04/19/2013 4:58:51 AM PDT by Colofornian

Multiple sources have identified Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19, as the remaining suspect in the Boston marathon bombings.

His brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, has been identified as the first suspect and died overnight following a firefight with police.

NBC News' Pete Williams said earlier Friday morning that the two suspects likely had "foreign military training," and had been in the country for about a year.

Later he said they were brothers, and added, "They were legal permanent residents. They were in this country legally, at least a year. They appear to be from Turkey, possibly Chechens from Turkey. That seems to be the nationality here."

Just before 7 a.m. Friday morning, the Associated Press confirmed Williams' reporting and naming Tsarnaev. Born July 22, 1993, according to Williams, Tsarnaev attended Cambridge Rindge and Latin School and has a Massachusetts drivers' license.

The brother, although NBC initially reported he was 20, was 26 and named Tamerlan Tsarnaev. He died overnight in the firefight with police, suffering from "blast and potentially gunshot wounds ...probably a blast injury [and] possibly shrapnel" throughout his trunk.

Will no one use the word Sunni Muslim to describe these guys?

How do you tell a Sunni from a piece of Shi'ite?

Just looked up the name "tamerlan"... named after turkic king Tamerlane who was known as the sword of Islam in the late14th - early 15th century. Names have meanings.

> Islam is not merely a religion, it is a political movement. The goal of every true Muslim is to destroy all infidels. An Islamic utopia with no Jews, no Christians, no Hindus, no Bhuddists and no dissent

And after that is accomplished I guess they will have to start on themselves because they won’t have anything to blow up or any heads to chop off and they will be very bored...lol

OK, here’s another thing I hate with FOX - they insist on this stupid terminology “HOMICIDE bombers”. Meanwhile the man she talks to keeps calling them suicide bombers.

Off the bombing at hand, it is IMPLIED anyone who bombs probably wants to kill others. Pointless. The difference with Moslems generally is they like to kill themselves in the process. I wish FOX would get off it and stop haughtily spouting that they won’t dignify the bombers by calling them suicide. Totally stupid.

*off soap box now!

A lot of talk about how nice and normal these kids were and speculation about how they could have changed.

It’s called radicalization. Look to the Muslim Student Association at MIT for a starting point.

His response - "Oh, I was really hoping they weren't muslim."

The converse of that is if he was hoping that they weren't muslim is that he was hoping they were something else. What else? Going by his fellow liberals' responses he was hoping that they were white conservative NRA and tea party members.

Truth has not mattered to the left for a very long time. It amazes me that our society ignores facts and goes with feelings - that the false narratives of the left on race, government spending, guns, etc. are accepted as truth when someone with an IQ over room temperture could see through their BS in a heartbeat. Very depressing.

“Jeffrey Dahmer’s neighbors, for example, told reporters: “He was shy, a little withdrawn. But not real bizarre,” and that, “he never bothered anyone.” (Anyone? What about all those people he killed?) According to his neighbors, Columbine killer Eric Harris was “a nice guy. Shy person, didn’t say much” and “a very nice, polite, clean-cut kid.” Furrow’s neighbors called him, “a very pleasant individual.” Barton’s neighbors saw him as “a typical American family man,” “a nice guy” who “kept to himself.”

Crime soared with Mass. gun law
By Jeff Jacoby
| Globe Columnist

February 17, 2013

IN 1998, Massachusetts passed what was hailed as the toughest gun-control legislation in the country. Among other stringencies, it banned semiautomatic “assault” weapons, imposed strict new licensing rules, prohibited anyone convicted of a violent crime or drug trafficking from ever carrying or owning a gun, and enacted severe penalties for storing guns unlocked.

“Today, Massachusetts leads the way in cracking down on gun violence,” said Republican Governor Paul Cellucci as he signed the bill into law. “It will save lives and help fight crime in our communities.” Scott Harshbarger, the state’s Democratic attorney general, agreed: “This vote is a victory for common sense and for the protection of our children and our neighborhoods.” One of the state’s leading anti-gun activists, John Rosenthal of Stop Handgun Violence, joined the applause. “The new gun law,” he predicted, “will certainly prevent future gun violence and countless grief.”

Interesting that the mother was busted for stealing from Lord and Taylor, and the bombs were placed near Lord and Taylor, and the video from Lord and Taylor was being touted yesterday as being important in the identification of these guys (not sure if that has changed, with so many suspect pics going around yesterday).

The Chechen homeland is in Russia and the brothers’ father is now living in Russia. Naming your kid “Tamerlan” might not be a wise move in Turkey—the original Tamerlane beat up on the Turks. But that was more than 600 years ago so maybe the average Turk of today is unfamiliar with that bit of history.

Coexistence - isn’t that the principle that that Neville Chamberlain used when he made the treaty (or whatever it was called) with Hitler’s Germany regarding the Sudetenland? Nazi Germany immediately invaded the Czech hoeland to grab the Sudetenland and then they invaded Polad as well.

Coexistence is a word which is similar to Tolerance. Both words are used as virtues rather than to define an attitude of how to act toward differing philosophies, some of which are evil in nature.

His second language listed is Russian (in Cyrillic letters). The third one is Chechen (Nokhchiyn mott), one of the Northeast Caucasian languages (possibly related to ancient Hurrian).
