Why?
I remember when Reagan stuck our noses in a country to help "freedom fighters".

The country was Afghanistan and the "freedom fighters" were the Mujahideen and Osama Bin Laden.

It is 2013 now. Try to keep up. We are being attacked from within by aliens who belong to a religion that calls us infidals, and wants to kill us. We have a government that doesn't recognize them as a threat, and is aiding them all over the world. The President, and his Mrs are visiting an enemy to personally tell him help is on the way in the guise of deportation.This is a real mess.

The violence between Russia and the Northern Russian region where the Bomber and his family are from have absolutely nothing to do with their religious practices.

Only the uninformed of world affairs would remotely suggest those kind of ties. They have been at each other for over 200 years.

The Northern Russian Region is fighting for their independence from Russia, as they were fighting the Soviet Union before the break up.

Where are you getting the information you are spouting, Fox? Fox is trying to make that connection as the motivation for the Bombing in Boston.

You're on the internet, so a little research if you'd like to know more about Foreign Affairs

You should be more concerned with homegrown terrorist like Tim McVeigh who for the extreme right cause takes to blowing up Institutions in America, or those Abortion Protestors from the Right causing destruction and mayhem to make a point.

you're more likely to be blown up, or caught in a violent protest by a Right Wing Extremist than you are a foreigner in America. It's obvious Republicans aren't concerned with Foreign Affairs and how they may impact citizens here in America.

"Sleeper Cell", you're jumping the gun to a predetermined conclusion aren't you?

What evidence do you have this was motivated by Islamic extremist fighting a Jihad? That's pretty much how Fox and the Network of Conservative Propaganda is painting this violence.

Sounds like you're repeating what the Righties have drummed in your mind, minus any real facts. Speculation driven idiocy to fuel more bigotry.

Racist, how can you tell by looking into a crowd of people in a airport or some other public space the difference between a Russian Immigrant and any other European Immigrant?

You're not thinking out your bigotry properly, racist would not apply. Uninformed people are dangerous.

Hi Gustafson! The Chechnyans are mainly Islamics along the Caucasus Mountain region. There's a mix of radical and non radical Muslims there and 'yes' they've got their rebel training camps. Russia has had problems with them for years.

The question is: Is there a connection between the brothers, mainly the older one, to Chechnyan Islamic extremists? Most likely 'yes'. Now you'll ask why? Who are the most influencial people in your life? The answer is your parents and for the Boston bombers it's the father, whom the Russian gov. has been having problems with. The father is the key in Chechnya to the rebel groups and the older son was most likely following suit.

Of course you're right! That was a bitter mistake. Any infidel must be dead or converted to Islam.

Radical muslims have all kinds of nutjob beliefs, so do radical christians, it still doesn't speak for all muslims or it's foundation.

Conservapedia and right wing "opinions" do not make facts.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

IF that were true, why would anyone be willing to help them?

Reagan did.

Bush did.
