Suspect No. 2 may be named after first president of Chechnya, whom the U.S. helped rat out to Yeltsin

The immigrant refugee terrorist Tsarnaev brothers from Chechnya who bombed the Boston Marathon seem to be named after significant people. The now dead older brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev bears the name of the Muslim conqueror Tamerlane, while the still-on-the-run brother Dzhokhar (or Djohar) Tsarnaev, born 1993, was perhaps named after the first president of a breakaway Chechen republic:

Dzhokhar Musayevich Dudaev (Chechen: Dudin Musa-khant Dʒouxar/Дудин Муса-кIант Жовхар; Russian: Джохар Мусаевич Дудаев; 15 February 1944 – 21 April 1996) was a Soviet Air Force general and Chechen leader, the first President of the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria, a breakaway state in the North Caucasus. 
Dudaev was born in Yalkhoroy in the abolished Chechen-Ingush Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic (ASSR), just days before the forced deportation of his family together with the entire Chechen and Ingush population on the orders of Joseph Stalin. His family was of the Yalhoroy Teip. He was the thirteenth youngest child of veterinarian Musa ana Rabiat Dudayevs. He spent the first 13 years of his life in internal exile in the Kazakh Soviet Socialist Republic. His family was only able to return to Chechnya in 1957.[1] ... 
In May 1990, Dudaev returned to Grozny, the Chechen capital, to devote himself to local politics. ...
Taking advantage of the Soviet Union's implosion, Dudaev and his supporters acted against the Zavgayev administration. On 6 September 1991, the militants of the NCChP invaded a session of the local Supreme Soviet, effectively dissolving the government of the Chechen-Ingush ASSR. ... 
After a controversial referendum in October 1991 confirmed Dudaev in his new position as president of the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria, he unilaterally declared the republic's sovereignty and its independence from Soviet Union. In November 1991, the then Russian President Boris Yeltsin dispatched troops to Grozny, but they were withdrawn when Dudaev's forces prevented them from leaving the airport. Russia refused to recognize the republic's independence, but hesitated to use further force against the separatists. From this point the Chechen-Ingush Republic had become a de facto independent state.[citation needed] 
Initially, Dudaev's government held diplomatic relations with Georgia where he received much moral support from the first Georgian President Zviad Gamsakhurdia. When Gamsakhurdia was overthrown in late 1991, he was given asylum in Chechnya and attended Dudaev's inauguration as President.  ... 
While he resided in Grozny he also helped to organise the first "All-Caucasian Conference" which was attended by independentist groups from across the region. Ichkeria never received diplomatic recognition from any internationally recognised state other than Georgia in 1991.[citation needed] 

You can't get much more Caucasian than a Chechen.
The Chechen-Ingush Republic split in two in June 1992, amidst the increasing Ossetian-Ingush conflict. After Chechnya had announced its initial declaration of sovereignty in 1991, its former entity Ingushetia opted to join the Russian Federation as a federal subject (Republic of Ingushetia). The remaining rump state of Ichkeria (Chechnya) declared full independence in 1993. That same year the Russian language stopped being taught in Chechen schools and it was also announced that the Chechen language would start to be written using the Latin alphabet (with some additional special Chechen characters) rather than Cyrillic in use since the 1930s. The state also began to print its own money and stamps. One of Dudaev's first decrees gave every man the right to bear arms.[citation needed]

The just need more gun control to stop Chechens from being so Checheny.
Dudaev's inexperienced and poorly-guided economic policies soon began to undermine Chechnya's economy and, Russian observers claimed, allegedly transformed the region into a criminal paradise. The non-Chechen population of Ichkeria left the republic due to criminal elements and faced with indifferent government.[9]

I'm shocked, shocked to learn of gangsterism in Chechnya.
In 1993, the Chechen parliament attempted to organize a referendum on public confidence in Dudaev on the grounds that he had failed to consolidate Chechnya's independence. He retaliated by dissolving parliament and other organs of power. Beginning in early summer of 1994, armed Chechen opposition groups with Russian military and financial backing tried repeatedly but without success to depose Dudaev by force.[citation needed] 
On 1 December 1994, the Russians began bombing Grozny airport and destroyed the Chechen Air Force (former Soviet training aircraft requisitioned by the republic in 1991). In response Ichkeria declared war on Russia and mobilised its armed forces. ... 
Before the fall of Grozny, Dudaev abandoned the presidential palace, moved south with his forces and continued leading the war throughout 1995, reportedly from a missile silo close to the historic Chechen capital of Vedeno. He continued to insist that his forces would prevail after the conventional warfare had finished, and the Chechen guerrilla fighters continued to operate across the entire country picking off Russian units and demoralising their soldiers. A jihad was declared on Russia by the Dudaev-appointed Mufti of Ichkeria, Akhmad Kadyrov, and foreign volunteers began pouring into the republic, mostly from neighbouring North Caucasian Muslim republics such as Dagestan.[citation needed] 
[edit]Death and legacy 
Dudaev was killed on 21 April 1996, by two laser-guided missiles when he was using a satellite phone, after his location was detected by a Russian reconnaissance aircraft, which intercepted his phone call. The telephone homing equipment was supplied to Moscow by the USA National Security Agency.[13] [Bold added] 

Thank goodness we have had the opportunity to experience the vibrant diversity that Chechens have brought to America. Why wouldn't we want to get to share in the full Caucasian Experience? The Caucasus are so multicultural and multiethnic that all we boring Americans can do is ask the Caucasians to teach us their wisdom.

It looks like Putin has a green light to carpet bomb, should he want to do so. All the impotent rage against Adam Lanza plus the hate these guys generated in the Boston Marathon will find a ready target in Chechnya.

"all we boring Americans can do is ask the Caucasians to teach us their wisdom"

It's not THEIR wisdom. The benefits from multiculturalism do not spring from any ONE party. The benefit spontaneously arises out of the harmonic confluence of ALL parties joining in a mutually reinforcing fermentation of resonant affirmation.

Give up your ego. Join the Movement. Dissolve your acidic personal bigotry in the all-embracing universal solvent of self-denying altruism. If every body just acted as though the other person were more important than they are, then we could create Heaven here on Earth.

Did Rubio and the gang of eight's amnesty bill include a ban on pressure cookers to keep America safe?

I lost sympathy for Chechen independence after the Beslen massacre.


So if Putin wanted to carpet bomb them, I wouldn't care.

If you thought Newtown, CT was bad, this was several times worse.

What I think is interesting is that it is their own uncle who is saying that they brought shame on the entire Chechan ethnicity.

One joke is a wry commentary on the status of Russian citizens from the Caucasus. “A Dagestani, a Chechen and an Ingush are riding in a car. Who is driving? The answer: A policeman.”

Really hope I wasn't the only one who heard radio announcers pronouncing Younger Caucasian's name as "Joker" and immediately thought of the initial pre-trial reports on James Holmes (no, not that James Holmes, I mean the cinema murderer guy)

I caught that too--very sharp, he could've hung in as one of Arafat's 10,000 press secretaries. Isn't it amazing how quickly the newcomers pick up the Cathedral lingo?

"The non-Chechen population of Ichkeria left the republic due to criminal elements and faced with indifferent government."

In reality, non-Chechens were being subjected to a disorganized genocide campaign involving murders, rapes, home invasions and kidnappings, as well as constant theft, property damage and harassment.

It's was not dissimilar to what happened to whites in Detroit.
