    “The Tsarnaev brothers, natives of Russia’s Caucasus region”

    I’ll bet anyone any amount of money the United States government doesn’t attack Russia because of these two idiots did in Boston!

    And they won’t because Russia is capable of defending themselves unlike all the other countries the United States government target!

    And this is because the United States Government are cowards, and only pick on those who cannot defend themselves….

    I love my country, I was born here of Scottish decent, (USA) but the people in this countries government has been killing innocent people at a whim for many decades with little or no regard for the lives or the sovereignty of other countries!

    The United States government tortures, and denies the human rights of other peoples (including their own citizens) all the while chastising other sovereign nations of their human rights violations!

    The words dishonest and Hypocrite comes to mind….
