The dead Boston Maraton bomber, Tamerla Tsarnaev, was discovered to be a boxer and his aspirations for being into the Olympic competition was frustrated because he was not an American citizen. He believed that the denial of his citizenship was rigged so that the boxer whom he beat would be the one to be chosen for the Olympics.
I do not know about them, but I frankly believe that this denial of citizenship was enough of a motivation to do what he did. It may not be enough to motivate him to kill, but it certainly would be enough to motivate him to radicalize his beliefs and fall back to Islam.
Tamerlan believed that he was cheated, and this changed his overall attitude inside the country.

the one wearing the niqab is a woman
or in fact, Dennis Rodman.
The mother of the Boston Marathon “bombers”,
From the words of Alexander the Great —
“Kings fall and kingdoms crumble
with just one tear of a mother.”
Now don’t get me wrong here—-
the law enforcement agencies are to be praised
for the brilliant planning,
and flawless house-to-house combing
in the operation that netted
More so, the citizens of Boston have to be lauded
for their unselfish cooperation
in allowing their social and economic lives
to be placed on hold in the effort to help.
There are still doubts, however, as to the identity/ies
of the ‘bombers”. The video/s of the two in the act of
planting the bombs still has to be shown.
What the police have as evidence now
may be considered as proof of the existence
of a fictional six-o’clock cult.
Squish through this one if you can.
(hooray for spring!)
