If the September 11, 2001 attacks in
New York City and Washington did not irreparably alter American society
forever, then the April 15, 2013 attack in Boston certainly did. Or should
have. Americans, despite several early conflicts and a brutal civil war, have
always fashioned themselves as a patriotic people fighting wars continuously
“other there…” Sadly, those belligerents “other there” are now here, amongst us, and plotting for our
destruction. They appear normal, even friendly, but beneath their outward presence
lurks an absolute evil that turns onetime babysitters into baby killers.
Today, many – if not most –
Americans are coming to terms with Islamic radicalism exhibited within Chechnya
and surrounding regions as if a relatively modern phenomenon. Sadly, such
conflicts have raged within the Caucuses since at least the early 19th
century. The region “took a more formidable development when Moslem fanaticism,
awakened by the sectarian professors of Mirditism, embodied itself in Schamyl,
the soldier priest, who gave to these rival races religious unity…” Yossef Bodansky, writing in the first decade
of the 21st century, would characterize this as “Chechenization…the
profound transformation of a predominantly Muslim society from its traditional,
largely pre-Islamic structure to one dominated by Islamist-Jihadist elements
that historically have been alien to that society.”
Nor can we leave this prospect with Chechnya, for the jihadists declared the
willingness to “write several bloody chapters in the new history, even if
[they] have to destroy everything on Earth in the process”.
Such a war has now thrust itself
upon American shores and our great republic will never be the same. For years,
I have done my best to awaken the American people to the realities of this war,
even predating the bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City.My
of the Independent Counterterrorist, has now reached a second edition
and can be purchased for less than the cost of a McDonald’s lunch. Yet, the
implications remain extraordinary. The great citizens of this nation must assume personal responsibility for
protecting our communities. I cannot help but wonder what would have
happened on last Monday if “someone” had noticed a backpack being dropped next
to several children. The reason that America does not represent a police state
is because “We the People” have declared to the world that we are sufficiently
responsible enough to protect ourselves.
Instead, America has trended towards
a country where many expect the government to solve all our problems from
educating our children through creating jobs and finally apprehending
terrorists. A nation of ~316,668,567individuals
expects to remain adequately
protected by a measly 800,000 federal, state, and municipal law enforcement personnel.
That is at least 395 Americans for every police officer in the country to
serve. Just two individuals – one of
which represented a naturalized citizen – killed a police officer from the
Massachusetts Institute of Technology. What would have happened had dozens of
armed and trained Americans been able to lend immediate aid to the officer? We
shall never know because a recalcitrant electorate has permitted a progressive
government to forestall this possibility.
The new “Boston massacre” occurred
simply because evil exists. There are
people amongst us today – perhaps even right next to you at this particular
moment – that care less about innocent human life than you care about the weeds
growing in your driveway. They will murder innocent children, maim others, and then go entertain themselves as if
merely returning home from the office on a Friday afternoon. They do not exist
because the police have not stopped them. They exist because you have not stopped them. Innocence, in
the 21st century with at least
a century’s worth of Islamic jihadist history against the rest of the world,
remains utter nonsense. Freedom bears a price and liberty demands vigilance.
Otherwise, we simply remain sheep fattened for the slaughter.

CBS reports that the FBI now acknowledges that they interviewed Tsarnaev two years ago at the request of a foreign country about possible extremist ties. Russia would be the obvious choice, according to Zip.
Had the FBI done a better job investigating, perhaps hundreds of people would not be injured, under induced comas in the hospital with limbs gone and brain surgery leaving them in questionable shape, or attending the funerals of loved-ones. Perhaps Boston and surrounding neighborhoods would not be living for days in terror.
Perhaps there would not be a dead policeman and many more police injured, had the FBI done due diligence in their investigation.

We know that26-year-old Tamerlan Tzarnaev (black cap) is dead, his 19 year-old brother, Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, (white cap) is on the run. However there was (is?) some confusion by some on the true identity and names of the two terrorists.
Early morning confusion on the true names of the terrorists? Proof social media reports suspect? Via Hyscience:
Student's Friend Says GIF Of Bombing Suspect #2 Looks Like Missing
Brown University Student Sunil Tripathi (Updated - Suspect #2 dead)
(Updated - Correct name ID'd))
Two suspects were identified in the Boston bombing and Watertown shooting incident. Mike Mulugeta who is now dead and Sunil Triparthi still at large (Photo: Twitter). Apparently these are Chechen (or Turkish?) brothers ... and I'm confused as hell about the names (Is it Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev or Sunil Triparthi that's suspect #2?).
Mike Mulugeta, the alleged "black hat" suspect one in the Watertown
shootings and Boston bombings was apprehended by police late Thursday
evening and now being reported dead. Some are speculating, however, that
the cause of Mike Mulugeta's death could have been suicide bombing as
some reports claim there were explosives strapped to the man's chest. He
and Sunil Tripathi, a missing Brown University, are both alleged
suspects in the Boston bombing which occurred Monday. It is important to
note however, that none of these reports have yet been confirmed by the
Now the AP reports
that one of two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing is dead after
the killing of a university officer and a shootout with police, and a
massive manhunt is underway for the other, authorities said early
Police are locking down some neighborhoods in Boston and its western
suburbs as they search for the remaining suspect: known as the man in
the white hat from marathon surveillance footage.
Authorities urged residents in Watertown, Newton, Waltham, Belmont,
Cambridge and the Allston-Brighton neighborhoods of Boston to stay
indoors. All mass transit was shut down and businesses were asked not to
open Friday. People waiting at bus and subway stops were told to go
"We believe this to be a terrorist," said Boston Police Commissioner
Ed David of the suspect on the loose. "We believe this to be a man who's
come here to kill people. We need to get him in custody."
So it appears that suspect #2 is indeed Sunil Tripathi and on the loose, and suspect 1 is Mike Mulugeta and is dead.
We've seen these names mentioned in more than one place on the web, but nothing from Fox News.
Trivia: Fox News’ Jennifer Griffin said the name ‘Dzhokar’ is familiar
to her, as it was the name of the first Chechnyan president who was
assassinated by Russia with rockets as he was using a cell phone. That
man is Dzhokar Musayevich Dudaev.
Chechen Muslim brothers, not exactly White Tea Party members, are responsible for the Boston Marathon bombings. 26-year-old Tamerlan Tzarnaev (black cap) is dead, his 19 year-old brother, Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, (white cap) is on the run. Authorities are concerned that the remaining terrorist may have explosives, a suicide vest.
Two suspects in the Boston
Marathon bombing who also killed an MIT police officer, were identified
by agencies as natives of the Russian region near Chechnya, which has
been plagued by an Islamic insurgency stemming from separatist wars.

surveillance tape recorded late Thursday showed the suspect known for
the white hat during a robbery of a convenience store in Cambridge, near
the campus of MIT, where a university police officer was killed while
responding to a report of a disturbance, said State Police Col Timothy
Alben. The officer died of multiple gunshot wounds.
From there, authorities say, the two men carjacked a man in a
Mercedes-Benz, keeping him with them in the car for half an hour before
releasing him at a gas station in Cambridge. The man was not injured.
The search for the vehicle led to a chase that ended in Watertown, where
authorities said the suspects threw explosive devices from the car and
exchanged gunfire with police. A transit police officer was seriously
injured during the chase, authorities said.
In Watertown, witnesses reported hearing multiple gunshots and
explosions at about 1 a.m. Friday. Dozens of police officers and FBI
agents were in the neighborhood and a helicopter circled overhead.
27-year-old Jeff Bauman
was standing right next to one of the bombs when it exploded,
destroying both his legs below the knee. An incredibly gruesome photo of
Bauman being wheeled to an ambulance—more revealing than the cropped
version above—instantly became the most iconic picture depicting the
horror of bombs’ damage.
The cowboy hat-clad Carlos Arredondo
at Bauman’s side in the photo ran into the crowd to help the injured
before police even arrived at the scene, and was heralded as a hero of
the day. But now Bauman is turning out to be a major hero himself.

Details of the pair began to emerge today.
They reportedly entered the United States with family in 2002 or 2003 and Tamerlan became a legal permanent resident in 2007.
Dzhokhar was born in Kyrgyzstan. The family, which also included two
daughters, Bella and Amina, had the status of refugees at the time they moved

in March 2002 … There were four of them – two sisters and two brothers… It’s
written here that they are from Kyrgyzstan. The Chechens.’
Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev went to a school in Makhachkala, the capital city of the Republic of Dagestan, between 1999-2001.
A friend of Dzokhar, Eric Machado told CNN the 19-year-old went to University of Amherst at U-Mass, was a lifeguard.
Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the 26 year-old brother of the second
Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, had a YouTube page where he
posted religious videos, including a video of Feiz Mohammad, a
fundamentalist Australian Muslim preacher who rails against the evils of
Harry Potter. Among those videos is one dedicated to the prophecy of
the Black Banners of Khurasan which is embraced by Islamic
extremists—particularly Al Qaeda. The videos posted on what appears to
be Tsarnaev’s YouTube page may shed light on the motivations for the
attack on the Boston Marathon. The prophecy states that an invincible
army will come from the region of “Khurasan,” a large portion of
territory in central Asia.
“This is a major hadith (reported saying of the prophet Muhammad)
that jihadis use, it is essentially an end-time prophecy,” says Aaron
Zelin, a fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.
Zelin is minimizing this. The Hadith of Islam, considered the word
of Mohammed by all Muslims, are considered as important and binding on
Muslims as the koran. They are not just used by jihadists as
justifications for extremism. They are used by ALL Muslims as
justification for their religion’s hatred, extremism, and violence.

The United Nations says Israel must withdraw all of its citizens from the regions of Judea and Samaria.
The early-morning strike in a border area west of Damascus targeted a
convoy of trucks carrying Russian-made SA-17 missiles to Hezbollah, the
anti-Israel Shiite militant and political group in Lebanon, according to
a Western official briefed on the raid. ...
In addition to taking out weapons that could be used by Hezbollah
against Israeli warplanes in a future conflict, Israel sent what
amounted to a message of warning to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and
Iran against attempting to transfer any chemical or biological weapons
to Hezbollah, U.S. and Western officials said. The use of such weapons
has been singled out by President Barack Obama as a "red line" that could trigger a U.S. intervention.

the country's border with Lebanon were wrong. Instead, Syria's military

The useless anti-Israel United Nations:
The United Nations says Israel must withdraw all of its citizens from the regions of Judea and Samaria.
The recommendation came in a report issued Thursday by the U.N. Human
Rights Council, which has a history of passing numerous biased
resolutions condemning Israel for various alleged ‘crimes’ each year.
"Israel must, in compliance with Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva
Convention, cease all settlement activities without preconditions," the
report said in part. "It must immediately initiate a process of
withdrawal of all settlers from the occupied Palestinian territories."
Israel’s Foreign Ministry responded in a fiery statement immediately
to the report, which claimed that Jewish settlement activity only
“hampers peace efforts.”
In response, Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor said, “The Human
Rights Council has sadly distinguished itself by its systemically
one-sided and biased approach towards Israel.
“This latest report is yet another reminder of that,” he added.

It’s not surprising, then, that someone who is secretly meeting with the confirmed enemy of our ally would heinously threaten, “After we win this election, it’s our turn. Payback.”
