This is the official version, but the real thing is that the FSB organized the explosions in order to start a new war in Chechnya, because Putin had such a low rating, and nothing could raise this rating as fast as a war.

Well, that is a convenient rumor, but it is not likely.

Common sense tell me that this is what we call here a tinfoil claim that occurs as a result of political fights all over the Democratic world.

Russia is also known fondly as one the the most conspiracy laden societies on the planet with the U.S. a close second place.

I think I speak for most Americans when I say that we respect the right to seek freedom wherever it may occur,but we despise the use of terror and the loss of innocent lives to do it. The goal never justifies the means. We learned that lesson during our growing up as a country.

It did not work for the IRA, who pioneered this bombing business, and it will not work in Russia or Iraq or anywhere!

The troubling thing is that the original idea was good and acceptable.

The means used to accomplish it have now destroyed any chance of success. At least not in this lifetime.

I am not sure that I understand. Perhaps we will never understand each other.

It was I who saw this myself, talked to people myself. I am smart enough to know that media is often a instrument of the regime, that often only official versions are printed. Perhaps it is a tinfoil claim from a tinfoil woman?

I lost my family, not from bullets but from secret gas. I am often told that I should thank Putin for saving my life. Over and over I answer: do I need this life?

The Russian government does not have free press or other free media. Censorship is occurring there, as it did during the Soviet years and during the reigns of the Czars before. Quite a few dissenting journalists have been murdered, and dissenting television companies have been shut down. A government capable of such behavior is also capable of staging other cruelties for propaganda purposes.
