The surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings was charged Monday with “using a weapon of mass destruction” that resulted in three deaths, according to documents filed in federal court.

The suspect, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, was charged by federal prosectors as he lay in a bed at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, officials said.

In a criminal complaint unsealed Monday in United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts, Mr. Tsarnaev was charged with one count of “using and conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction” against persons and property within the United States resulting in death, and one count of “malicious destruction of property by means of an explosive device resulting in death.”

If he is convicted, the charges could carry the death penalty.

During the bedside arraignment, a magistrate judge advised Mr. Tsarnaev of his rights and the charges against him, according to court papers.

Comment — April 22, 2013

One can only marvel at how America has been transformed in the space of a few decades. From being the “Land of the Brave and the Free”, supposedly a symbol of hope, to becoming the world’s foremost totalitarian state.
All the more so as America still portrays itself as an advocate for “freedom”. The irony of which is made all the more telling as it echoes Orwell’s 1984’s ruling party slogans: “War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery.”
From Vietnam and Cambodia, to Iraq and Afghanistan, the U.S. has exported its prized freedoms and killed millions in the process. Usually accompanied with lies as a pretext.
Like Saddam’s alleged Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD), which although they were never found paved the way for the invasion of Iraq.
Now however the U.S. Dept. of Justice has come up trumps and found its very own WMDs, charging Dzokhar Tsarnaev with “conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction”. A charge that carries a potential death penalty.
So after shooting Dzokhar Tsarnaev in the throat, and thereby ensuring his silence because he cannot talk now, U.S. authorities seem intent on guaranteeing his permanent silence with the death sentence.
This whole case stinks: from the way the U.S. authorities and media ignored the presence of teams of private military contractors at the scene of the Boston bombings. To the way they have ruthlessly built a case against the Tsarnaev brothers; to the way Americans swallowed their lies and “celebrated” Dzokhar Tsarnaev’s capture, it speaks volumes of the debased, unquestioning horror show that modern America has become.
Is it any wonder that the illuminati treat ordinary Americans with such contempt?
I have no doubt that future historians will look back and see in it a power that’s more degenerate than ancient Rome, more brutal than Nazi Germany or Stalin’s Russia, more ruthlessly calculating than the British Empire, peopled by citizens of the lowest sort.
Nor do I doubt that if the U.S. Dept of Justice convict this kid, for that’s all he is, and sentence him to death that public opinion the world over will turn against America.
Big time.
