It's a bit late now but after they got the names of those guys, I kept thinking what the older brother (and, in consequence the younger one too) would have become if his parents had decided to name him something different from Tamerlan.

"You Are A Dick"

It's always a struggle for words. You can find cliches in the comment section, but nothing ever seems to fit the moment. I've read "You're a coward" on forum boards as if it were written in stone. Too bad you can't hurt a ghost.

History is littered with righteous dissidents. That's not the culprit. History has perpetrators, too.
That fits.

Too bad it's not enough. You smashed the lives of some, but you shattered the peace for millions. The only words that seem to fit are words we don't say enough.

I will never be a saint. I've lied, cheated and slacked. But I've never sought harm for vengeance's sake. I've never sought spite for the pleasure of pain.

We don't say it enough, and it's something we ought to say more. Of all the words that seem to fit, this is the phrase I can't stop hearing.

To the Boston Bomber:
You are a dick.

@ risingstarlp

Also interesting as a British band, as more than a few people in Britain have commented on the role Boston played in funding Irish nationalism, and until relatively recently, terrorist bombs that killed in British cities.

(To be clear the two situations are very different in many ways and I think suggesting that one is some sort of "karma" for the other is in appallingly bad taste.)

A lot of terrorism is based on hatred built up from old and unforgiven grudges - maybe Muse performing such a symbolic song at such a time shows the best thing to do is forget them and stand together.

I hope for a speedy and full recovery for all those injured.

Krystle Campbell. Martin Richard. One other person yet to be identified. Dead.

Seventeen others, critically injured.

159 other injuries.

God bless them all.

To the inhuman monsters who did this: you are no longer worthy of living among us. May justice be swift for you.

Well done (the Muse recognition).

I was *this* close to walking down to watch the finish of the marathon. Wow.

Times like this remind us all that we're human.

It's kind of interesting, since Muse is a British band and are playing our national anthem on a day Boston is commemorating a battle against the British army. But obviously its welcome.
