Boston Marathon Bombing

Suspect #1 Wanted to

Box for U.S.A.

4/19/2013 6:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tamerlan Tsarnaev -- Boston bombing suspect #1 who was killed overnight -- was training intensely as a boxer, and hoped to represent Team USA in the Olympics.

According to a site posting photos of Tsarnaev training at Wai Kru Mixed Martial Arts Center in Boston -- he wanted to be selected for the US Olympic team and become a naturalized citizen.

Tamerlan told the site he'd prefer to box for his native Chechnya, but since it's not an independent country ... he'd choose to box for the US.

Tamerlan describes himself as a Muslim who doesn't drink or smoke.

On the photo site ... Tamerlan says he has a girlfriend who's half Italian, half Portuguese ... and has converted to Islam.

They were Born Russian Citizens so They are Russians The same way when a Person is Born in Puerto Rico is a USA Citizen even though Puerto Rico is NOT a USA State But it is a USA Territory. ------- -------------- To Further Answer You, i was Born in The Canary Islands and i am a SPAIN Citizen even though The Canary Islands is only a Territory Of SPAIN. ------ The Same goes for CHECHENS.------ They are RUSSIAN Citizens By Birth...

We americans have enough problems with unemployment, housing market etc. We need to help ourselves before we help anyone else. Other countries view us as weak and stupid. We need to change that and do something about our immigration laws asap before it gets out of hand. And by that I don't mean go back to the olden days.
