Boston Bombers were Brothers - Blah, Blah, Blah

Drudge  8AM -  he leads with a shot of police infantry posing for a picture in Boston.  It's going to be another one of those days in the news biz.   The tongue twisting alliterative headlines are lengthening.  Can you say "Brothers who carried bombs in black  backpacks in Boston"?   It's getting rather ludicrous.   "Black hat man dead .... Bragged of Bombing".

As Drudge would write... "Developing"

Ah yes, a  "BRIC"  Bulletin:

"Boston bombing suspect was...a Muslim Boxer".  Well of course he was.  You just can't make this stuff up.  His brother, the baby faced bomber, was a wrestler. But that's not alliterative. 

Boston Business Disrupted, the Braintrust on Edge
My favorite snippet of B - Blah, Blah, Blah today, was published in The Globe and Mail, a Canadian newspaper.

"Bucolic Cambridge, an iconic braintrust that includes Harvard University..."  Nice!

Easter Egg Hunt

The Chechnyan-American brothers seem to have proven their American bonifides by doing what every other American youth does these days... record their day to  day activities in digital images.  In so doing, these rascals prepared themselves well for that popular media game - the EASTER EGG HUNT - a ritual search for pictures which follows every 5 STAR criminal event in the U.S.

This is the older brother, the "Muslim Boxer" who was gunned down earlier this morning. He was hit by multiple rounds fired from different directions. A photo of his thoroughly "ventilated" corpse is on the NET, if you have a taste for crime-porn.  I don't.  What's amazing is that police had the two brothers pinned down in a Boston suburb, engaged them in a sustained firefight, and then the 19 year old  managed to slip the dragnet, for another 12 or more hours!  Incredible.  If the militant young boobs had spent some cash and set up  a couple of safe houses, they'd be sitting back and watching the chaos on CNN. The entire city of Boston was shut done for the day.  The next such national "event" is going to be amazing. 

This is the younger brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, an image scraped from his Twitter account. [The family name is pronounced Joe-HARR tsar-NAH-yev]. I see that the Drudge Report has now (1PM), also labelled him the "Baby Faced Bomber". Satiric minds share commonalities.  Drudge though, won't be the journalist to dissect the performance of the virtual army of law enforcement and military personnel it took to catch this young man.  The media keep repeating the dubious figure,  that "9,000" officers were involved.  Nonsense.


What is really interesting is that today's admitted deployment number is equivalent to two U.S. Army Regiments, with SWAT teams flown in from as far away as Maine and Ohio.   All that for two homegrown terrorists with no assets.  When a coordinated, well funded terrorist attack or the  long-threatened incidents of insurrection finally happen, of the size and scope that the politicians keep insisting must happen, the U.S. Federal Government will have to deploy soldiers and paramilitary police contingents equivalent to several U.S. Army Divisions to contain it.  Then the "War on Terrorism" will truly have come home, and Canada must generously open its arms to American refugee families.  Boston was as much a dress rehearsal for suppressing insurrection, and the testing of new control methodologies on the public, as it was about catching a couple of bad actors.   ... At least the American media gave North Korea a rest for a week. Small mercies, eh?
