    Can someone explain to me why Chechens, who are supposedly trying to liberate themselves from the Russians would attack us? :scratch:

    I'm really kind of puzzled with this one. If they ever needed help against the Russians (diplomatically or otherwise), why the fuck would they attack us?

    But that's the thing. I don't think the Chechens really consider themselves Russian. In fact, they're trying to liberate themselves and become a new republic. Why attack us?

    I would imagine it's their way of saying they aren't to be fucked with?

    on one of the news channels a guy just said that al qaeda has been recruiting people from chechnya because they want white-looking people working for them. no idea if that's true. you know how inaccurate the news can be.

    Yeah, well incredulously, that actually makes more sense than some actual, organized attack under the name of a group.

    Fucking with them...how?

    Do they feel we're on the Russians side in their struggle for liberation?

    Or are they just lone (crazy) wolves?

    last night before i went to bed there was a story breaking about a cop at mit who was shot and killed.

    woke up and found out that he was shot and killed when he responded to a robbery call at 7-11. the robbery was by the bombing suspects. a fire fight ensued. another cop shot and injured. suspects threw explosives at fbi/cops. black hat suspect shot and killed. white hat suspect still at large. 20 block area of boston roped off. door to door, room to room search for white hat guy. all universities closed. act of terror.
