Again, there is NO LOGICAL REASON for Chechens to take out their vengeance toward the USSR and Russia against the US.
Zbigniew Brzenski had a major grudge against the Soviets because of the Katyn Massacre during WWII, when Stalin ordered the arrest and murder of practically the entire Polish officer class and a lot of Poland's leaders. So he devised a plan to enlist the Saudis to organize Wahabbi (fundamentalist) missionary activity in the various Muslim Soviet Republics (Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Kirghizstan, Azerbaijan) to give the Russians a hard time. These were infiltrated using Afghanistan, which has porous borders and a number of tribes that migrated across them. The Soviet response was to take over Afghanistan. Then the Saudis were used to enlist various Afghan warlords into what became the Taliban and a prolonged resistance against the Soviets, which eventually destroyed modernity in Afghanistan and cost the Soviets a huge amount of money and men.
The Saudis have always had a problem providing jobs to the less educated Saudi citizens. Most hard labor, like in construction, are too low status to appeal to these people, and most of those jobs are given to underpaid Pakistanis, Indians, Yemenis and other poor Third World Muslims. So these uneducated, unqualified Saudis are hired as Morality Policemen that enforces Sharia Law, and of course, as fundamentalist missionaries to Muslim countries in which Islam is not too strong: Albania, Bosnia, the Philippines and of course, the various Muslim parts of what was once the USSR and Russia.
The Chechens have always been mistreated by the Russians since the Czar annexed them in the 1850's. Stalin sent them off to Siberia and Central Asia, and when they were allowed to return, Russians were living on what used to be their land. But the resistance to the Russians was organized in part by radicalized Muslim imams that had been indoctrinated by the Saudi missionaries.
Stalin started this whole mess, and as they say, "whatever goes around, comes around".
Someone should have anticipated that Brezinski's desire for revenge might have the potential to come back and bite the US in the butt. Spreading fanaticism is always a bad idea for any country interested in modernity, industrialization and democracy. Someone needs to get the word across to the State Department.

I will agree with you and your post, the only common denominator that these two individuals had is the fact that they became radicalized Muslims. I don't think that it has nothing to do with the nationality of an individual it has to do with their religion,
We are now learning that they had to practice in advance of actualy having those bombs explode, The father of those individuals is coming to the US to "set the record strainht" the mother of those individual is stating that the FBI has been investigating her son for over 5 years, the Wife and her family have already "lawyered up" and claim that she didn't know anything about any of this. The Cambridge Musk is now saying that the older brother had to be quiet down for disrupting inside the Musk,
They are paining the younger brother as a young man that was following his brother and that he acted the way he did just because of being like his brother, Yet, he attendend functions and parties after the Marathon.
I guess that he was really concerned with his actions.
They didn't do what they did because of their Chechnian nationality, they did what they did because they are Radical Fundamentalist Muslims.

You do not mean "musk" you mean "mosque".
Any sane person related to these two should clearly get a lawyer. The brothers have been tried and convicted in the press. It will be very difficult to get any sort of impartial jury that will be able to try this case on the admissible evidence alone.
We do not know what their motives were. We only know what they were accused of and that the police and the press are convinced of their guilt.
There is no logical reason for any Muslim of any type to expect that bombing the Boston Marathon would benefit Islam, fundamentalist or not, in any way. Just as there is no way that you or anyone could use a bomb to make people love Jesus.
We do not know what is written on pro-Chechen websites, because what is there would be written in Chechen, which uses the Cyrillic alphabet, or perhaps Arabic, which uses another unfamiliar alphabet. I imagine that all most reporters know about Chechen websites consists of pictures on them. There are various types of Muslim fundamentalism. Not all of them favor the union of all Islam under a single caliphate, because this is rather like Christians favoring a single Christian Kingdom under some sort of Maxi-Pope. Many people are far too smart to believe that this is possible.
