Moreover, at least one of the sisters has also had no contact with her brothers for years. Really peculiar.
my extended family is just like that - immigrant family in the UK, all (apart from me, nice and peaceful in another country LOL) living within 20 miles of each other and not seeing/speaking to each other... constant family feuds and fall-outs between the aunt/uncle/parent generation, and all of that generation seriously as mad as cats (although the younger generation, i.e. cousins, are mostly pretty stable and lovely and get on very well, and many of us younger generation are estranged from the older generation) - it would seriously be a NIGHTMARE if any of my family did something media-worthy LOL

This op-ed covers radicalism and where it comes from:

Brian Levin, J.D.: More Questions Than Answers in the Radicalization of Suspected Boston Bombers

The comments offer great insight too.

It's from the DailyFail so take with a gigantic grain of salt, but Tamerlan's wife is named Katherine Russell and she's from Rhode Island.

According to the story, she and Tamerlan used to visit all the time. She moved home without him a year ago.

that "expert" validates what I wrote

Quote:
Chechens' main target has been Russia not the United States, and while they are Muslim, their conflict has been as much if not more a nationalistic one. After a bloody civil war broke out in 1994 where Chechens tried to gain independence Russia prevailed. Since then some of the most spectacular terrorist attacks in recent history have been committed against Russian targets by Chechen nationalists, many of whom are women.
he seems legit

It took me a while to see Batman too. Although, I though Batman was in LA since this is currently parked on campus at USC.

not sure i remember or that maybe i remember it being later than it was that chechnian war back then but did know that chechnian rebels have continued actions in the Moscow area off & on...

after suspecting really (usa) right-wing types, possibly right-wing Islamists, the thought popped in my mind early eve yesterday Eastern European ? don't know why.

Good Luck to anyone in the Boston Mewgalopolis area here with us (of course in general, too!

just to correct something I said earlier, the 7-11 robbery now appears to have been coincidental- they still got images of the two brothers because they stopped to buy gas at another nearby spot.

no, you were right

It was Sunil Tripathi and Mike Mulugeta that robbed the place.

I can't listen to this scanner any more. I have to hit the road to DFW for a wedding (driving through West, as it were), but at this point it looks like I won't be missing anything.
