Boston is a very expensive city to live in. Housing and food are quite high
compared to Salt Lake.Did any one in that family work? How did they
get money to pay for their expenses and eating out which it appears the boys did
What is not mentioned in the article is what potential effect that the
FBI's monitoring and questioning of the older brother might have had on
increasing his paranoia towards America and Americans.
While I can understand an uncle's love, 19 year old Dzhokhar is not "a
boy." Let's not lose sight of that in the "analysis" of this.
Also, for the author to call it the 'Boston Marathon bombing tragedy'
goes to the same effort to rewrite it as something other than what it was. This
was a terror attack and the resulting carnage of innocent life is tragic but let
us not confuse the two. Also, how does an "auto shop owner" afford such
a prestigious school as they attended? While I don't know what it is, I
would have to guess was pretty hefty tuition.
The school was a public school. I believe the elder brotber draggedthe younger
one with him. Now many lives have been destroyed for nothing including their
People in blue collar jobs can actually make money. In fact, in our family, one
the wealthiest member of it owned an auto detail store and sold his business for
several million dollars to retire at age 43. Another one owns a trucking
company with a fleet of 200 trucks, no college education. You don't need to
a college degree to be successful. You can even work with your hands and back
and make a decent living. Plus, as I have learned from watching and reading the
news, the younger brother had a scholarship of sorts...And maybe the family
saved money and didn't rack up credit cards...who knows.
@MidwestMom,It's not difficult to see where this is going. The FBI
was at fault because they interviewed the person at the request of Russia, who
was ultimately correct about his jihadism, and the FBI would have been at fault
is they hadn't interviewed him. It's similar to Lee Harvey
Oswald. The FBI should have kept track of him, but if they had, it would have
been called harassing a peace loving Marxist just returned from Cuba.
We allow traitors to live among us and because of the liberal agenda and the
backlash "normal" people get from them for having standard then everyone
seems to be desensitized to allowing people to constantly destroy our
freedoms.It is long past time for everyone who wants to maintain our
rights and freedoms to stand up and start calling out the traitors so they know
that we know who they are.That is the least we can do.I
think the Uncle knew these kids were up to no good. Time for him to go back!
I am wondering why none of the bombers friends and relatives didn't turn
them in. The younger murderer, was partying with his friends in the dorm, and
some joked that HE couldn't be that guy. What's with that?Questions need to be asked of the FBI about not investigating the older
murderer more extensively. Finally, is Glenn Beck right when he
says the Saudi guy being deported is "a bad, bad guy?"Were
Since Thursday, I've had the highly unpopular thought that somewhere in a
Russian republic there are broken-hearted, bewildered parents. I so GET that
these two guys are responsible for the murder and mutilation of a whole lot of
innocent people, and that's reprehensible. It has distressed me to see the
talking heads on the news programs baying for their blood.Whether we
like it or not, it is just this kind of situation that calls upon us to remember
that these too are a mother's sons, and more importantly, they too are
Hey, Red. It's a free country. How about following your own advice and
naming a few dozen traitors so we can trash our own Constitution by locking them
up? Or, on second thought, would that be too lenient?
