Liberals don't get terrorism

This letter concerns the brothers Tsarnaev, the Boston Marathon terrorists.
The younger brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, has lived in this country since 2002 and is an America citizen. He went to college and did what many college students do — smoke, drink and run around with girls.
Then he apparently got an epiphany via his brother, Tamerlan, that he should embrace a radical brand of religion. To convince us infidels that his brand of religion is the only true religion, he blows up people.
There's a sure-fire way to proselytize and convince others to join your religion: Convert or die, infidel. How absurd.
This guy and his brother killed three and wounded 260 others, including 14 who required amputation.
The scene that struck me most was a guy pushing a wounded man in a wheelchair. Both of the wounded man's his legs had just been blown off by the pressure-cooker bomb and he was still conscious despite his legs hanging in bloody shreds of flesh.
Despite this, some politically correct liberals want us to believe there was no wider conspiracy, that these two acted alone. I say they just fell in with the wrong crowd — the terrorist crowd.
Wake up, you P.C. liberals, and thank God it wasn't your family member killed or maimed by a terrorist bomber.
Despite Sept. 11 and despite April 15, many Americans still don't have a clue what this is all about. They are clueless.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
