    By this point, the media coverage is has probably become more harmful than the attack itself.

    More Americans die in car accidents every hour (on average) than died in this bombing.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    my opinion, thinking the brother, the older one was not happy with his life, looked for more. he looked for a purpose and found one that appealed to his interest and sense of being and accomplishment. than he started to get absorbed in the radical terrorist ideology and dragged his younger brother into it, who looks like a follower. both are intelligent, just not wise.

    many sources in the news agree that they were not terrorist when there got here but became that way when they were here.
    the big question is when the conversion occured and who converted him, they kinda know what led to it and of course to find where is the younger brother.

    I hope he lives, so we can find out more.

    Nope but there's not much of a point to responding to such poor disputation.

    I'm not sure that this is terrorism in the usual sense, it seems, the story that's unfolding, the LATEST story, that this is more akin to the alienated youths on a killing spree akin to Columbine or perhaps more like the Asian guy who went on that shooting rampage more recently.

    There's politics at play already, the BBC is already talking about the geopolitical relationship between the US and Putin's Russia, attitudes to Chechen hostilities and the classification as either a seperatist or islamic terror conflict. Up until now the media has been reporting that the Islamic colouring of the war in Chechnia was fomented by Russian forces, either directly or indirectly as an ideology of despair.

    There is a narrative which suggests that the Russians did foment islamic threats around the world because the extent that "anti-terrorism" could serve as a possible new big idea or globally unifying metanarrative following the more or less complete demise of socialism or anything like it. Its something that cuts across societies like China, the US, Russia, India etc.

    In many ways I think its simpler than that but I'm not surprised that states will try and capitalise on it that way. There's alienated people, most of them fit the same profile, young men, and they're turning to bloody violence, there's not whatever it was which limited or prevented this from happening in the past any longer.

    Yay! Very weird day here in Cambridge... went for a walk when we were "ungrounded," but was a very unsettled feeling. Was very weird it being a ghost town here earlier.

    Also disturbing that the MIT police officer got shot at a spot that's right on my daily walk to work. Was weird seeing that intersection (and other familiar neighborhoods) in national media.

    Glad the second suspect was taken alive, so we get more answers (one hopes).
