Sunil Tripathi & Mike Mulugeta. More details later.

-------------------------------------------------------------

Sorry, first reporting was false. Sunil Tripathi & Mike Mulugeta are not the perps.

The one on the run is:

Dzhokkhar Tsarnaev (19) -

from Kirgistan. But they may have come from Turkey: there is a rather large Kirgi-contingent in eastern Turkey.

He is a muslim.

Here is his russian FB page. Alternative spelling for his name: Djohar Tsarnaev.

His now dead brother was Tamerlan Tsarnaev (26). Tamerlan is the islamifiziert version of the eastern name "Timur" and is quite common in the region, much as John or George is here in the USA. Tamerlan's youtube page is focused on Islam. Apparently, Tamerlan was a boxer. His hope was to make the US olympic boxing team in order to become a citizen and get a US passport. Photo of him with text about this HERE. One of his favorite songs in youtube, according to RT, is "I want to dedicate my life to Jihad".

I have a friend in Bonn, he is from Kirgistan, I will ask him about these things.

But it looks like those two sons-of bitches were jihadists.

I used to be sympathetic to the Chcehs since they were fighting the same enemy as my Great Great Grandfathers fought but no more Chechens on my Christmas list

Which terrorist groups operate in Chechnya?

Information about groups linked to the conflict in Chechnya is hard to confirm, but experts say the struggle is between local separatists--a loosely organized group with semi-independent commanders--and the Russian army. According to the U.S. State Department, the Islamic International Peacekeeping Brigade (IIPB) is the primary channel for Islamic funding of the Chechen guerillas, in part through links to al-Qaeda-related financiers on the Arabian Peninsula. The United States also defined the Chechnya-based Special Purpose Islamic Regiment (SPIR) and the Riyadus-Salikhin Reconnaissance and Sabotage Battalion of Chechen Martyrs as terrorist entities in February 2003.

Chechnya's long and violent guerrilla war has attracted a small number of Islamist militants from outside of Chechnya--some of whom are Arab fighters with possible links to al-Qaeda. Among the Islamist militants, the most prominent was Basayev, Russia's most wanted man. Basayev fought for Chechen independence for more than a decade, and was the mastermind behind the worst terrorist attacks on Russian soil. On July 10, 2006, Basayev was killed in an explosion in neighboring Ingushetia. His death cast doubt on the future of the Chechen separatist movement, and allegedly led to the surrender of five hundred militants. Four months later, Russian security forces killed Abu Hafs al-Urdani, the Jordanian-born commander of foreign fighters in Chechnya. Since then, violence in Chechnya has ebbed, though terrorism in the areas of Dagestan and Ingushetia has increased.

What major attacks are the Chechen groups responsible for?

The most notorious and devastating attack came in September 2004, when Basayev ordered an attack on a school in Beslan, a town in North Ossetia. More than three hundred people died in the three-day siege, most of them children. There were thirty-two militants, though only three or four were Chechens. All but one of the militants were reportedly killed during the siege. Since then, violence has generally targeted individual officials and government offices rather than large groups of civilians. Attacks include:
An August 1999 bombing of a shopping arcade and a September 1999 bombing of an apartment building in Moscow that killed sixty-four people.
Two bombings in September 1999 in the Russian republic of Dagestan and southern Russian city of Volgodonsk. Controversy still surrounds whether these attacks were conclusively linked to Chechens.
A bomb blast that killed at least forty-one people, including seventeen children, during a military parade in the southwestern town of Kaspiisk in May 2002. Russia blamed the attack on Chechen terrorists.
The October 2002 seizure of Moscow's Dubrovka Theater, where approximately seven hundred people were attending a performance. Russian Special Forces launched a rescue operation, but the opium-derived gas they used to disable the hostage-takers killed more than 120 hostages, as well as many of the terrorists. Basayev took responsibility for organizing the attack, and three Chechen-affiliated groups are thought to have been involved.
A December 2002 dual suicide bombing that attacked the headquarters of Chechnya's Russian-backed government in Grozny. Russian officials claim that international terrorists helped local Chechens mount the assault, which killed eighty-three people.
A three-day attack on Ingushetia in June 2004, which killed almost one hundred people and injured another 120.
Street fighting in October 2005 that killed at least eighty-five people. The fighting was in the south Russian city of Nalchik after Chechen rebels assaulted government buildings, telecommunications facilities, and the airport.
An attack on the Nevsky Express, used by members of the business and political elite, in November 2009 killed twenty-seven people.
In March 2010, two female suicide bombers detonated bombs in a Moscow metro station located near the headquarters of the security services, killing thirty-nine people. Islamist Chechen rebel leader Doku Umarov claimed responsibility for the bombing; he had also claimed responsibility for the derailment of the Nevsky Express.
Two days after the metro station bombing in March 2010, two bombs exploded in the town of Kizlyar, in Russia's North Caucasus, killing at least twelve people.
Calling these savages animals would be an insult to my dog.

The issue why are Chechyans pissed off at US except for the fact that they are Muslims and let's face it we are at war with AQ and other Muslim dominated areas. So
they could be playing the enemy of my enemy card.
