Boston Bombing “Suspects” Sound Very Much Like Liberals In Their Motivations

Let’s see: both liberals and Islamists became radicalized. Both engage in or attempt to engage in violence (though Islamists typically try and kill lots of people more often for their beliefs). Both like to Blame The United States. And…

(Washington Post[1]) The 19-year-old suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings has told interrogators that the American wars in Iraq and Afghanistan motivated him and his brother to carry out the attack, according to U.S. officials familiar with the interviews.

Rather, the officials said, the evidence so far suggests they were “self-radicalized” through Internet sites and U.S. actions in the Muslim world. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has specifically cited the U.S. war in Iraq, which ended in December 2011 with the removal of the last American forces, and the war in Afghanistan, where President Obama plans to end combat operations by the end of 2014.

Hmm, take out the radicalized Islamic notion and you have a political left person. Of course, the WP immediately tries to protect Obama a little bit

Obama has made repairing U.S. relations with the Islamic world a foreign policy priority, even as he has expanded drone operations in Pakistan and other countries, which has inflamed Muslim public opinion.

Like most of his policy priorities, chalk that one up to a big fail. The Muslim world hates the US[2] more than during the Bush years, even as Obama built lots of strawmen arguments[3].

The WP also spends lots of time attempting to build a lone gunmen scenario, saying the trip to Russia and Russia’s concerns were meaningless. This is the narrative the Leftist media will build, that this has little to do with radical Islam, people who have essentially declared war on the United States. Imagine had the brothers been TEA Partiers, we’d be hearing about how the whole movement is at fault. Instead, what we really learn is that the brothers appear to hold liberal views.

Oh, BTW, we also learn that the ATF is having a tough time tracing the guns used, because the serial numbers were filed off. Hey, isn’t doing that illegal? I’m seriously disappointed that a homicidal criminals are failing to follow the law.

Finally, make sure you view the comments at the story, which bring out the typical liberal blame America folks, with hits such as

I don’t remember where I read/heard it, but I’ve heard that for every terrorist that we kill, we’re creating 20 more. It makes sense; drone strikes recently and guided missiles earlier in the Afghan/Iraq wars led to thousands of civilian deaths.

“Radical Islam” doesn’t hate us for our freedoms or Constitution or any of that. They hate us because we kill them. They hate us because we kill their children.

It seems almost like breeding terrorism is the desired goal of our foreign policy, so that we can ensure there are pretexts to further American hegemony in the world, and so that the bloated military industrial complex can continue to grow because it is “needed”.

Can we now call them OCT? Obama Created Terrorists?
