I don't think so.

Two dead and a couple dozen injured so far.

Not sure what the motive is. I'm tired of (mostly) well-educated, upper-middle-class whites keeping recreationally fit and patting themselves on the back for it, but I'd never set up them the bomb.

 Ball bearings at scene and quite large devices speculated.  Bastards!

Come now Goiter.  You know it doesn't matter if the victims are on another continent, browner than us, and think differently about "Freedom" (TM) than we do.

Is there some kind of running gun battle underway at MIT at the moment?

News now saying they were Chechens, in the country legally for over a year.

In other words, 'cleanskins', which is pretty much what everyone in the security services has been worrying about since the beginning of the last decade.

I've watched a bit of the news coverage on this new development this morning and I have to say that the media is handling the discovery of the suspects' heritage pretty irresponsibly. First of all, it's not even absolutely certain that these guys were behind the Boston incident. Second, if they were indeed behind it, their motives are still unknown, but everyone is already speculating about their connection to political extremist groups, based merely on the fact that they're Chechen immigrants.

Maybe they're a couple of stupid assholes trying to prove how badass they are. When Harris and Klebold shot up Columbine, nobody was looking at their heritage to find a possible connection to terrorist groups. An act of violence isn't automatically politically motivated just because it's committed by a recent immigrant.

Wasn't Chechnya Persian before the Caucasian War?

The question's unrelated to the rest of the thread. I think it is. I remember it being a trivia question on some game from a few years ago. Can't remember if it was a game show or a board game-type game.

I'm not going to look it up. I'm just going to assume my brain is right about this one.

That pretty much exhausts my Caucasian War trivia store. Well, that and that it ended in 1864. I only remember that because I know it lasted way longer than the US Civil War but ended the year before.

There. Now my Caucasian War trivia store is depleted.

Uh... Boston. 

Go Bruins!

 The authorities are now talking about certain videos and postings they made on the Internet.

Not sure what they thought they would achieve by bombing the marathon though?
