Someone said earlier the Chechens hates the Russians - no longer the case, not when it comes to the Chechen government anyway. The Chechen president is now in Putin's pocket but he's a bit of a dictator so the actual Chechen people hate him.
Russia and US are at loggerheads over an oil & gas pipeline running through Chechnya. A destabilized Chechnya means US have a better chance of controlling a larger amount of the oil and gas which Russia presently dominates.
Therefore what is happening now in Boston is directly benefiting the American oil and gas corporations.
Worth bearing in mind as we watch this play out and in the months to come.
Chechnyan independence would benefit the US greatly.

Few problems, in the tale. that point to something bigger here.
You don't just drive around for 30 mins banging on about your deeds with a hostage in the back... unless.. you need that hostage to be hyped up and planted for your next move. total distraction and chaos.. for as long as possible. why? well that's easy. say you needed something moved through Boston (or out) but due to the earlier situation the "fuzz" was strategically positioned to catch such a move.
You divert the attention, massively, tie them up in knots so a gap is made, then slip the package through the gap.. the more the diversion plays out, the more time package has to move without being suspected.
Add in a major city practically wired to blow, and that's one hell of a diversion, as they search for the original distraction the fuzz will find more deeper evidence of what may have been the package, or another package still in the city.
Just sharing that thought process, thanks again for the updates

It is not about evidence, it’s about knowing what you are talking about.
I am very well read on matters of terrorism it’s my big interest, some people can talk all day about UFO’s or NWO and for me its terrorism.
So when I say no they do not belong to a Chechen terrorist group I do so form a educated background and based on my analysis of the situation which leads me to the conclusion that they are not trained members of a terrorist group. That is based on current media reporting, it could very well turn out that they were trained in the South Caucuses but that would be speculation. Right now based on the facts that we know it is not reasonable to assume they are trained terrorists.
I would like to turn the question on its head and ask you why you think they are members of a trained terrorist group.

I would also like for him to live, at least long enough to tell us why and if there are anymore people involved. After that I could care less what happens to him.
