THE MIND OF A BOMBER

US law enforcement, after a couple days, was able to pin down the identities of those involved in the Boston bombing incident.  Two boys almost out of their juvenile years, a 26 year old and another a 19 year old students of Boston school.   They are brothers.   Both are migrants from Chechnya, a Russian minor province.  Their parents sought sanctuary in US soil and applied for citizenship which eventually was granted.

What is behind this?  What is the persuasion behind the bombing?  Who stands to benefit from the violent mayhem committed?  What exactly will settle maiming several innocent civilians in the resulting carnage?  Assuming that the identified culprits, boys in their early adulthood, were the bombers, what compelled them to do it?  The crime is not one of passion, an instant, something which could have pushed them or made them snap.  It is a crime with deliberation as shown from the devise they used.  It was a slow, predetermined effort to work slowly in preparing a home-made bomb.  They boys barely out of their juvenile years, inexperienced in the field of terrorism, may have been inspired or lured into something sinister.

Surely, these boys acted with care, discretion and discernment.  They knew the consequences.  The bomb they were carrying had a purpose, one that would express their feelings and concerns.  They do not even look like they were the hopeless and desperate kind.    They were admitted in prestigious schools and the younger one even became a state scholar.  From a rural Russian province, these boys were reintroduced into American life and for a decade they were literally assimilated.  Their adjustment must have been too punishing psychologically for them.  While they grew as kids of strict Islamic environment, the American liberal atmosphere proved too generous for their adventurous and rebellious nature.  They were not only brought up in a copious community but fed with freethinking.  This may have been what inspired them to express and enforce their lethal plans.

*****

The evil duo, a label of hatred they got after being identified as the culprits, believed, and may have subscribed in the mantra that one must destroy something in order to build a new one.  History of warfare yields numerous dramatic pictures where an area is bombed into extinction or bombed if only to be reconstructed into an ideal setting.  A Biblical scenario may have been noted also where Sodom and Gomorrah was flattened by an angry God because of excessive and sinful living.   Scholars know this.  The problem however with migrants is their conservative appreciation of where they are situated.  The feeling of alienation, of being unfit, of being belittled if not discriminated rule their day.  In USA, not so much in Europe, discrimination is the order of the day.  Life in the US has become impersonal to the point that life is mistaken as routine and ordinary.  Those who succeed are the most objective.  Migrants are basically a subjective lot.

*****

It is not surprising that in places where impersonal relationship is descriptive of environment, heinous crime prevail.  An urban area which has achieved quite a level of barbaric hostility is ripe for any criminal mind to explode his evil deeds.  Denizens in these places should always be vigilant and always on the alert.    They must also be on their guard and if possible familiar with martial arts.  Without this component, any person is like a prey innocently roaming in a predatory environment.  Here, it is either the government or vigilantes who must stabilize the surroundings.  In their absence, the citizens are threatened with extinction.
