For many reasons I am very happy to know that they got him alive.

I'm concerned that about the possibility that there were more people involved in the attacks. REALLY hope that the suspect they have in custody doesn't die. Sorting everything out get a lot harder if he does.

Basically.  I can't wrap my head around any possible motive in an attack like this. =S

Who can guess at the motives of madmen?

In any case, I have a feeling it's far from finished yet.

This kinda makes me want to don a large metallic suit of armor with buily in weaponry and an AI navigator/HUD attendant/butler....hmm.

Oh.

1. Pressure cooker bombs are probably heavy, and there were four of them. Part of the reason why I think more than two people may have been involved.

2. Seeing some speculation being posted from friends/family that that older brother may have been masterminding things and exploiting his brother's trust to get him to commit murder, which is beyond fucked up if that ends up being true.

I assume there is more people involved. Terrorists like this don't usually attack alone. I'm sure they have some help from whichever group they are affiliated with.

Pressure cookers don't weigh too much, mesh. Maybe 10 lbs for smaller ones, and given that this shithole was planting them and moving they couldn't be that big. A box of nails weighs may e half a pound for several hundred, and ball bearings depend on how big and what metal. Add your explosive cocktail recipe and the overall unit weighs under 25lbs I'd say. Easy to carry 1 or 2 without much effort in a sack or backpack as they did. It'd make for a very easy placement and evasion, allowing for one guy to do the work and seem less conspicuous. Honestly I'd be surprised if anyone else was involved in this, as it seems designed to be quick in and out.

Terrorists?

By definition these guys were/are terrorists. They set bombs to kill a lot of people and cause mass fear. Whether they were working with a larger terrorist group or not we will have to wait and see. So yeah.. Terrorists.
All right, we are going to use a fan brush here and uh why don't you take some hunter green and we are going to put a happy little bush right down over here in the corner there and that'll just be our little secret and if you tell anyone that that bush is there I will come to your house and I will cut you.

Probably one of five moments in history (between now and the end of time) where people actually cheered cops in the streets.

That'll change by next week by the first ticket someone gets.

Spot on.

I assume there is a connection to a group based on the older brother (Tamerlan Tsarnaev) going to Chechnya for a period of time and, apparently, coming back "changed." That and the FBI was warned by a foreign government that the older brother might be a terrorist.
