The Boston Bombing that was allegedly carried out by two Chechen immigrants from Chechnya has raised the issue of Islamic terrorism. While most Americans don't know the difference between a Czech and a Chechen, as noted by Politico - Czech official: We're not Chechen, what is really missing from the story is the history, geopolitics of the region, US foreign policy and the insidious US/House of Saud connection.
Folks like to think that it's never about religion but it's always about religion because religion dominates law, culture and human civilizations. The historical conflicts between Islam and Christianity are a profoundly critical component of current events, even if they are being twisted to comport with the government's deceitful version of realpolitik and its accompanying deceptions.
Chechnya is located in a region known as the Caucasus, a strip of land north of Iran, south of Russia, bordered by Turkey and nestled between the Caspian and Black Seas. It's been a highly contentious patch of dirt throughout history for geopolitical as well as religious reasons while chronically embroiled in the Great Game of of the Austria-Hungary Empire, the Ottoman Empire, the Russian Empire and even the British Empire.
In terms of landmass, Russia is still the largest nation on the planet despite losing a huge chunk of its real estate during the break-up of the Soviet Union in 1991. With a long and intriguing history, Russia grew geographically as a result of its wars to keep the Mongols and Ottomans at bay. In 1991, the Soviet Union lost its northern territories of Belarus (3), Estonia (4), Latvia (8), Lithuania (9), Moldova (10) and the Ukraine (14); it lost its southern territories of Armenia (1), Azerbaijan (2), Georgia (5), Kazakhstan (6), Kyrgyzstan (7), Tajikistan (12), Turkmenistan (13) and Uzbekistan (15).
The reasons for the break-up of the Soviet Union are the subject of considerable scholarly dispute. Some attribute the break-up to US agitation and US support for the Islamists during the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. Others attribute it to economic collapse triggered by the Afghan War. In any event, other nations in central Europe were breaking away from the Soviet Union and these nations were wrongly and immorally ceded to Stalin at the end of WW II by Churchill and Roosevelt - Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Yugoslavia, and Albania.
Russia never ceded its southern Chechnya province to the instigators for independence and for geopolitical reasons. Thoughtout its long history, Russia's enemies struck hard at Russian trade by depriving it of a warm water port and this was devastating to the Russian economy where its northern ports were frozen tundras during the winter. Consequently Russia has always been obsessed with having a secure warm water port. Moreover, the Caspian Sea is loaded with oil.
Caspian Sea oil find could be 'biggest this year'
Iran Finds Its First Caspian Sea Oil for More Than a Century
Complicating the geopolitical issues and the endless quest for the black gold is the ongoing Muslim civil war between the Sunnis and the Shiites who are concentrated in Iran and Iraq. Oil creates commodity wealth and nations murder and wage wars for dominance of oil and oil markets. Is the US determination to "bomb, bomb, bomb Iran" an oil war? Of course it is and the US has always sided with Sunni Islam and especially the horrid House of Saud, all to the detriment Shiite Islam. Incidentally, neither Iran nor Iraq nor Iranians nor Iraqis were ever involved in terrorism against the US or western interests. 911, the USS Cole bombings, the bombings of 2 US embassies in Africa, the London bombing, the Mumbai bombing, the Bali bombing, the Madrid bombings and all other acts of Islamist terror were all acts of Sunni Salifist Wahhabists, the rabid form of Islam born in Saudi Arabia in the 18th century.
The issue of the Boston Bombers isn't so much about radical Islam as it is about the evil US-Saudi alliance to spread radical Sunni Salafist Wahhabism as far and wide as possible. In fact, Soviet Muslims were not radical at all but with the break-up of the Soviet Union and all the instability that ensured post break-up, the US and the Saudis wasted no time in funding, training and arming violent Sunni jihad warriors. This is nothing new and the US and Saudis have a long history of jointly working together to create and spread radicalized Sunni Islam. At least since the days of Jimmy Carter, the US, the CIA and the Saudis have worked together to breed Sunni jihadists and Carter intervened in Afghanistan to arm and fund the Afghan Mujuhadeen, now the Taliban.
There can be no doubt that during the break-up of the Soviet Union that the US, the CIA and the Saudis flooded former Russian territories with money, radical mosques and jihad clerics.
In light of the Boston Bombing, Global Research is providing incredible documentation and background on this issue.
BOSTON TRUTH: The “Chechen Connection”, Al Qaeda and the Boston Marathon Bombings
The Creation of A New Legend: “The Chechen Connection”In addition to discussing the draconian assaults on US civil liberties and invoking a revival of the War on Terror to terrorize Americans into relinquishing their civil liberties through a significantly strengthened totalitarian American militarized police state, there is far more than totalitarian political expediency at work here. The Global Research issues documents the history of US involvement with the Saudis.
A new legend is unfolding: “The Chechen Connection” is threatening America. Islamism homegrown in the Russian Federation is now being “exported to America”.
Plastered on news tabloids across the United States, the April 15 Boston Marathon bombings on Patriots’ Day are relentlessly compared to September 11, 2001.
According to the Council of Foreign Relations:
Law enforcement agencies at all levels have made advances in surveillance and policing since the September 11, 2001 attacks, but security risks persist. Many counterterrorism experts call for a renewed focus on the ability of the United States to weather and recover from such incidents…
According to the powerful Council of Foreign Relations (which exerts a pervasive influence on both the White House and the State Department), the Boston bombings once again “raise the specter of terrorism on U.S. soil, highlighting the vulnerabilities of a free and open society”....
Counter terrorism and Martial Law –implying the suspension of civil liberties– rather than civilian law enforcement are the proposed solutions....
“The Chechen Connection” has become embedded in a new media consensus. The American Homeland is potentially threatened by Muslim terrorists from the Russian Federation, who have links to Al Qaeda.
Al Qaeda and the CIAThe CIA, frequently dubbed Cocaine Import Agency, here, has also been dubbed the private military of the New World Order that seeks global UN governance through the totalitarian marriage of big business and big government. The CIA jumps into action whenever some corporation is lusting for a natural resource to exploit/steal or some psychopathic politico starts screaming 'regime change' which in America happens just about every day.
The American public is misled. The media reports carefully overlook the historical origins of the Chechnya jihadist movement and its pervasive links to US intelligence.
The fact of the matter is that the jihadist movement is a creation of US intelligence, which has also led to the development of “political Islam”. While the role of the CIA in support of the Islamic jihad (including most Al Qaeda affiliated organizations) is amply documented, there is also evidence that the FBI has covertly equipped and incited would be terrorists within the US.....
The CIA’s agenda starting in the late 1970s was to recruit and train jihadist “freedom fighters” (Mujahideen) to wage “a war of liberation” directed against the pro-Soviet secular government of Afghanistan.
Ronald Reagan even entertained the Afghan Mujuhadeen at the White House.
The Global Research article goes on:
The “Islamic Jihad” (or holy war against the Soviets) became an integral part of the CIA’s intelligence ploy. It was supported by the United States and Saudi Arabia, with a significant part of the funding generated from the Golden Crescent drug trade:
“In March 1985, President Reagan signed National Security Decision Directive 166 … [which] authorize[d] stepped-up covert military aid to the Mujahideen, and it made clear that the secret Afghan war had a new goal: to defeat Soviet troops in Afghanistan through covert action and encourage a Soviet withdrawal. The new covert U.S. assistance began with a dramatic increase in arms supplies — a steady rise to 65,000 tons annually by 1987 … as well as a “ceaseless stream” of CIA and Pentagon specialists who travelled to the secret headquarters of Pakistan’s ISI on the main road near Rawalpindi, Pakistan. There, the CIA specialists met with Pakistani intelligence officers to help plan operations for the Afghan rebels.”(Steve Coll, The Washington Post, July 19, 1992.)
Mujahideen from a large number of Muslim countries were recruited by the CIA. Jihadists from the Muslim republics (and autonomous regions) of the Soviet Union were also recruited.(For further analysis see Michael Chossudovsky, Al Qaeda and the “War on Terrorism”, Global Research, January 20, 2008)
Al Qaeda and the Chechnya Jihad
Chechnya is an autonomous region of the Russian Federation.
Among the recruits for specialized training in the early 1990s was the leader of the Chechnya rebellion Shamil Basayev who –in the immediate wake of the Cold War– led Chechnya’s first secessionist war against Russia.
During his training in Afghanistan, Shamil Basayev linked up with Saudi born veteran Mujahideen Commander “Al Khattab” who had fought as a volunteer in Afghanistan. Barely a few months after Basayev’s return to Grozny, Khattab was invited (early 1995) to set up an army base in Chechnya for the training of Mujahideen fighters. According to the BBC, Khattab’s posting to Chechnya had been “arranged through the Saudi-Arabian based [International] Islamic Relief Organisation, a militant religious organisation, funded by mosques and rich individuals which channeled funds into Chechnya”.(BBC, 29 September 1999).Make no mistake. Radical Islam as practiced in Saudi Arabia (Sunni Salafist Wahhabism) is not only the most violent form of Islam ever to exist, its expansion into many other nations could not have been facilitated without the covert and overt cooperation between the House of Saud, the CIA and the US government.
Radical Islam is very much the spawn of US foreign policy that is always in cahoots with the evil House of Saud. The relationship between the US and the House of Saud is the progeny of Big Oil and its goal of maintaining its cartel and cozy business relationships with some world class thieves, murderers, human rights abusers and psychopaths.
In 2004, Russian President Vladimir Putin met with foreign reporters and said:
“Why don't you meet Usama bin Laden, invite him to Brussels or to the White House and engage in talks, ask him what he wants and give it to him so he leaves you in peace? You find it possible to set some limitations in your dealings with these bastards, so why should we talk to people who are child-killers?”Putin was referring to the 2002 takeover of a Moscow theater that resulted in 850 hostages and the deaths of 130 hostages, and the slaughter of 330 hostages, mostly children, by radical Chechnya Islamists who seized a school in 2004 along with 1,100 hostages.
This is the true face of US foreign policy and its House of Saud/CIA alliance that has been actively going on since the days of Jimmy Carter. Much has been written about the US/Saudi/Bush connection.

WikiLeaks: Saudi Millions Fund Radical Madrassas in Pakistan Daily Kos
The Saudi's don't just fund radical madrassas in Pakistan, they fund them everywhere, even in the US where a lot of benign and harmless Muslims become radicalized. Pakistan remains the most dangerous nation on the planet because it became a nuclear power with US/CIA blessings and it's teeming with radical Sunni Muslims trained in the art of fanatical jihad.
One thing is certain - Obama, like Clinton and Bush, will do everything and anything to protect the House of Saud and its evil interpretation of Islam. When nations are poor and suffering, especially during a break-up as expansive and catastrophic as the Soviet Union, desperate folks will succumb to anything for food and necessities. They will even turn their children over to Saudi madrassas for education and affiliate with radical mosques that offer food and medicine.
What happened in Chechnya was an absolute humanitarian horror that would not have occurred without US and Saudi funding. Therefore, when we think of Chechens as the Boston Bombers what we really need to think about is: Who is responsible for creating these monsters?
Boston Bombers Were On CIA Payroll: Debka
Were the Boston Marathon ‘bomb brothers’ on the CIA’s payroll? According to this breaking story from Debka.com, they absolutely were and in fact, were double agents. We recently heard from the aunt of Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev who shared with news outlets that the oldest brother had been watched by the FBI for YEARS and that the ‘boys’ had been set up. So, why didn’t the FBI do anything to stop this tragedy? Did the FBI WANT this to occur? If not the FBI, then WHO wanted the Boston Marathon bombing to take place? Did someone VERY HIGH up in the US government help to make sure that this ‘false flag’ attack upon America happened or was this just a case of two brothers breaking free from their CIA ‘overlords’? From Debka: “We now know this was a charade. The authorities knew exactly who they were. Suddenly, during the police pursuit of their getaway car from the MIT campus on Friday, they were fully identified.” More below from Debka.Debka.com is an Israeli intelligence site. Debka also reported: "Boston Bombers had Saudi Wahhabi links, US-Saudi talks on how to handle the Saudi connection.". The article is premium content and only available to subscribers.
The big questions buzzing over Boston Bombers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev have a single answer: The conclusion reached by DEBKAfile’s counterterrorism and intelligence sources is that the brothers were double agents, hired by US and Saudi intelligence to penetrate the Wahhabi jihadist networks which, helped by Saudi financial institutions, had spread across the restive Russian Caucasian.
They were concerned to enough to send Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saudi al-Faisal to Washington Wednesday, April 17, in the middle of the Boston Marathon bombing crisis, for a private conversation with President Barack Obama and his national security adviser Tom Donilon on how to handle the Saudi angle of the bombing attack.
The Tsarnaevs’ recruitment by US intelligence as penetration agents against terrorist networks in southern Russia explains some otherwise baffling features of the event. (Read those baffling features at Debka.com)
Personally, I don't agree with Debka that the Tsarnaev brothers were hired by the CIA and the Saudis to infiltrate Wahhabi jihadist networks because the US and the Saudi's create jihad networks.
As the Boston Bombing continues to raise way more questions than answers, the government and media propaganda machines have kicked into high gear to spread lies.
It's more than hilarious that the boots of 9,000 cops and government agents on the ground couldn't even find one teenager supposedly on the loose with bombs and guns. It took a homeowner going outside to smoke a cigarette after the lockdown was lifted who noticed that the tarp covering the boat in his driveway was in disarray and covered in blood. All this occurred not far from the site of the shootout where an estimated 200-300 bullets were fired and apparently struck the teen who managed to limp away and find shelter in a nearby boat.
Even weirder is that any sniffer dog could have sniffed the trail of blood to the boat. The Boston Marathon event had bomb sniffing dogs that were apparently a big fail.
If the government has high tech infrared x-ray cameras and similarly equipped drones and helicopters, it raises the question of how these cameras missed the Boston Bombers carrying pressure cooker bombs at the Boston Marathon and again missed an alleged shot and bleeding terrorist who managed to escape the gargantuan police net.
The US Police State is hugely expensive and spares no expense. Yet, it was totally worthless in stopping the Boston Marathon bombing as well as worthless in capturing the alleged terrorist bomber.
If anything, the epic fail of Homeland Security, the FBI and Boston PD should greatly disturb Americans and Bostonians who suffered through terrifying and intrusive house to house swat team searches.
But at the end of the day, all the government and police departments want is for the American sheeple people to applaud the federalized Keystone Cops and wrap themselves in a flag as a display of gratitude. For what?
The government celebrates: Mission Accomplished.
