The effort to discover and neutralize the perpetrators of the latest Boston massacre has entered a highly dramatic – and dynamic – phase. One suspect has been killed in a gunfight in Watertown, Massachusetts.  Another is, as I speak, the subject of an intense manhunt there.

Police have identified the two as brothers from the Russian province of Chechnya, whose Muslim-population has been radicalized in the course of Vladimir Putin’s protracted repression there. We’ll soon know if they’re responsible for this attack, and – if so – whether they acted alone.

Until then, speculation has become a national pastime – but not a very productive one.  This much is clear, though: The perpetrators of this attack are not the only ones who wish us harm.  Every American must now become part of vigilantly defending our country against them.
