    remember the 1 time myself but like you I went, "Hmmmmm"

    It often is something like that, being denied something they busted ass to earn that can start radicalizing a person...

    Plus I found a bunch of early stuff interesting, a man named Tamerlan, also a warrior (boxer, modern version) First denied the Title fight, then denied citizenship, unable to crack the Olympic team, all his life's dreams dashed.

    I hate having to include that I feel no sympathy for Tamerlan or his brother due to their actions but otherwise it will be misunderstood.

    I am just curious as to the progression. People don't wake up one morning and say, " Hey, lets go bomb something" there are triggers that let a person through the stages and the more we do figure out, the better the chance of future events being found sooner, preferably before the bombing starts....
