Well, what do I know.

Putin in Russia and the Chinese leadership should be able to fix this terrorist stuff. I believe Trump will too.

"Putin in Russia and the Chinese leadership should be able to fix this terrorist stuff. I believe Trump will too."

Putin, the authoritarian, has been in power for quite a while. He hasn't fixed the 'terrorist stuff'.

The CCP, the authoritarians, have been in power for many decades. They haven't fixed the 'terrorist stuff'.

Trump, the wannabe authoritarian, has been in power for a chaotic few months running around with his head up his backside. What will he do to fix this 'terrorist stuff'? Something 'incredible'? Perhaps even 'unbelievable'?

I think everybody should change their facebook profile background to a Russian flag to show solidarity with the victims.

Sad to see that Kyrgyz is getting radicalized - I've had several delightful students from the country. My guess is that it's sandwiched between two very large rivals to the north and west which are also Russia client states - Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan - and some terrible stuff going on to their east (Xinjiang) and south (Afghanistan). Still, a few bad apples does not a country make. Let's hope that pressure to resist radicalism bears fruit.

Laguna - you said "radicalized" but left out the ideology.

Is it Iscreamic? nahhh

Is it Icelandic? noooope.

Is it I likeya-ick? not even close!

Is it Islamic?

Come on down!

I'm so surprised that the perp is /was an Islamic.

Good point, clamenza, and I apologize for my oversight! It wasn't even close to Icelandic-level - Anders Breivik took out 77 alone. Fourteen deaths is a tragedy and a horrendous crime; what makes it terrorism is simply the ethnic bacground of the perpetrator. If this had been a white postman in America, we'd all forget about it by tomorrow.

An easy prediction made years ago. Eventually these Islamic fanatic groups and countries will attack Russia or China and those two countries are not going to be like western nations with responses. The EU, US and UN all legitimize the rape slaver, genociding Islamic religious regimes and groups by effectively stating those groups are allowed to rape, murder and invade because of some non existent grievance with the world. Russia or China, will simply wipe out the areas run by 7the century Islam until those people stop raising babies into rapists and they give up world conquest or everyone there is, dead.

Violence committed in the service of an ideological perspective is terrorism. If Mr. Dzhalilov carried out this crime as a result of ideological radicalization then that would make it a terrorist act and unless that ideology was some kind of ultra nationalist Kyrgyz resistance movement his ethnic background is irrelevant.

If this had been a white postman in America, we'd all forget about it by tomorrow.

So if a white postman put a bomb in a Washington DC Metro station which killed fourteen people and put another forty nine in the hospital; we'd all forget about it by tomorrow? Why? Because it happens so often? Because the perp was white? Because the perp was a postman?

When a guy who happens to be Islamic kills a guy, the anglophone Internet just decides his religion made him do it. We don't need to closely analyze the circumstances of his life, whether or not he had a mental illness, or anything that may have played a factor in his violence apart from being Muslim. "They" are all dangerous.

When a white Christian shoots up a mosque or a black church, or as President of the United States tells the world that God told him to invade Iraq and in doing so causes millions of civilian casualties and causes such disruption that ISIS is actually created as a consequence, for some reason in that same community religion is never the cause. Suddenly it becomes critically important to examine every extenuating circumstance because "they" couldn't possibly reflect on "us". "We" are good people. I mean, some of us do murder innocents because they're bigots and we are trying to set up a rhetorical framework for blaming innocent members of a religion for things they never did, but we're still good people, so don't judge us by the people who look like us who do bad. Have a little nuance, okay? Please see us deeply. They are all the same, but we are complex and multifaceted.

Laguna - And ill take your 1 nut job acting alone and not in the name of religion, and raise you 6 muslims who killed 3000 on 9/11 - in the name of religion.

katsu78 - for all your silly attempts to equate the countless islamic terrorist attacks to any other, why is it we all shoot nervous glances at muslims when we enter airports, and not white Christians?

Sorry, but there is no comparison, and the world has had enough of the cuck apologist left who excuse this madness.

Weird that ISIS didn't take credit right away like they do for everything
