    Bushco failed for seven years, this administration gave full cooperation and shared resources, interesting difference in results.


    Now, if we could do something about the 30,000 gun deaths every year?

    If a big country came to our land and waged war on us for 10+ years, we might be a tad touchy about the whole thing too!
    Could this guy have been framed?? It seems he is presumed guilty before he was even caught. It’s crossed my mind that he could have been framed, not likely but possible.

    Wrong on most counts, I think.
    1. The USA is not at war with Chechnya, nor is it involved in any meaningful oppression (that I am aware of). Their enemy is Russia, no rational person considers them a USA ally even now.
    2. While it is still “trial by media”, there is very little doubt that these two boys knowingly dropped their backpacks, and cooly walked away from the ensuing chaos. (They knew they were bombs, otherwise the explosions would have alarmed them.)
    3. During the pursuit, they reacted by using more of the same types of explosive devices.
    4. It is very likely that the neck wound of the younger one was self-inflicted, not something an innocent person would do.

    BTW, I am very impressed how much effort went into capturing them alive.

    @Ottodesu

    Good reply except for #4. It’s my understanding that he was shot and did not self inflict.

    He should be considered an enemy combatant until found to be otherwise.
    I have heard these two weren’t citizens, but legal aliens.

    And don’t forget the FEMA concentration camps while you’re pushing unfounded conspiracy theories, Harley! (Note: taking away an American’s citizenship without a trial bothers me a LOT more than asking to check a felon’s criminal background before selling him a gun.)

    No, actually we have a constitution that deals with that issue, narrowminded. He should be considered innocent until proven guilty. Which we can do without kangaroo courts and third-world-dictator style clown tribunals. We’re Americans here. Let’s behave like it.

    The older brother was denied citizenship on a domestic assault charge. The younger brother was naturalized last year.

    He’s not an “enemy” (we’re not at war with Chechens) and he’s not a combatant. Treat him like we did Timothy McVeigh. Find him guily in a court of law according to what should be the American standard of justice.

    The GOP acknowledges he must be tried in civilian court. They want him declared an enemy combatant so they can “gather intelligence” aka torture him first.

    I am tired of everyone using props for every speech. O uses them and when I see them I turn him off, Both parties and even local government use them.
    Who are they? I wonder… do they really want to stand behind someone who speaks? Do they like having their 15 seconds of televised fame? Who stand in front and tells them when to nod heads and applaud?

    I am writing another song parody. This one is based on the tune “When The Red Red Robin Goes Bob Bob Bobbin’ Along”
    It starts:
    “When the right wing nut jobs go bomb bomb bombing along.”

    @Wabbit

    well, sure. But wait, when exactly did the US spend 10 years in Chechenya ?

    The First Chechen War began in 1994, when Russian forces entered Chechnya to “restore constitutional order”. Following nearly two years of brutal fighting, in which an estimated tens of thousands to more than 100,000 people died, and the 1996 Khasavyurt ceasefire agreement, the Russian troops were withdrawn from the republic.

    The Second Chechen War was launched by the Russian Federation starting 26 August 1999, in response to the Invasion of Dagestan by the Islamic International Peacekeeping Brigade (IIPB)

    So if your premiss is valid, shouldn’t the bombing have happened in Moscow?

    The younger one was a naturalized citizen, and therefore is accorded all the protections of the constitution. And like Timothy McVeigh will be charged with federal crimes that carry the death penalty, or life in a federal penitentiary (not nice places at all!) without the possibility of ever being paroled. We are a nation of constitutional laws, and our officials are acting like it. I personally like that!!

    Why don’t both sides accept that, when bad things happen, it makes sense to look at relevant laws. When a major shooting happens, it makes sense to look at gun laws. When immigrants plant a bomb, it makes sense to look at immigration laws.
