Special Forces will shortly be given an assignment.
Too bad we’re so infiltrated all we do is give them the best lawyers.
The Russians should talk to the terrorists so that they can understand each other...0bama could help.
That what Twitter news reporting
RodrigoBNO Russian media says explosions caused by suicide bombers
RodrigoBNO 8.38am a explosion took place at Moscow’s Park Kultury metro station — Interfax
Prayers up for these folks. I hope this will get the world to re-focus their attention on defeating terrorism. That includes our leaders. The people know that this is a high priority, the leadership better soon take it seriously again. I miss Bush and Cheney.
Update: 15 dead on train, 11 on platform at Moscow Lubyanka station in blast, govt spokesperson says http://bit.ly/cGRod3
I’m amazed more stuff like this doesn’t happen here. There is absolutely zero security on US public transportation. Anyone would walk on to a subway in any major city with a literal arsenal in a gym bag.
Someone is trying to attack KGB HQ....
While I would cheer if the FSB/KGB building was attacked itself (With no loss of life), the loss of innocent civilians is intolerable, thus I condemn the attack.
Plus the attackers are probably of the Al Qaeda dissent. Same people who tried to attack the Chinese Olympics.
Explosion hits second Moscow metro station, multiple sources report; at least 25 dead at first, 15 at second http://bit.ly/d9fYLB
Up to 41 killed now. More than one blast.
The first explosion happened in a carriage at the central Lubyanka underground station and has claimed the lives of 26 people, with more injured, informs RIA Novosti news agency.
The second blast happened at the Park Kultury Metro station. 15 or more people are reported to be dead, the quantity of injured is unknown.
This may well be the work of Chechnyan terrorists.

I think that if muzzies start bombing American targets, the local populace will go in and eradicate the local muzzies...and the muzzies know it. Bombings will happen after our guns are removed from our possession.
Yeah I just hear this is Tass news wire here
The Russkis do NOT screw around with such things as “due process”. They find out who did this and they WILL ‘take care of business’.
I hope they find out who...
Jersrelum Post Twitter page reporting this
Jerusalem_Post 25 killed in Moscow subway blast: Dead include 14 in train’s 2nd car, 11 on platform; cause not immediately clear. http://bit.ly/ar0cMb
I love that picture. Thanks for sharing it once again.
Third Blast on Prospekt Mira station
Thing about Al Qaeda is that they will attack just about ANYONE, including the Chinese (Plot stopped by Chinese police on Beijing Subway, plus AQ does operate in the Uyagar area), India, Iran, and other Islamic terror groups (Think Hamas-AQ civil war in Palestine)! They sometimes even get into scuffles with their host Taliban partners.
wish the grown-ups were in control of this country instead of aging hippies and socialists hiding behind the visages of PC cardboard cutouts....
“...they will attack just about ANYONE...”
Yeah, misunderstood youths will do that!
They need some lawyers, fast. /s (just in case)
At least we could learn from some countries that don’t deal with this kind of ‘crime’ like we do.
Third Blast on Prospekt Mira station happened around 9:14 am (GMT+3). No info regarding victims.
You'd think, after Beslan alone, they'd be right by our side in any conflict with militant islam. Instead, they're more interested in making a buck and poking a stick in our eye.
They just got another islamic thank-you card.
Acts like this one may embolden terrorists who know that they have a friend in Washington DC to start going nuts in America. It’s a “law and order” thing, you see, and maybe somebody forgets to read the terrorists their Miranda rights in the proper Arab dialect... Captured terrorists would certainly be given defense lawyers selected from a pool of Democrat lawyers who would simply knock each other over for the chance to get their faces plastered on the front page of the NY Times with a heroic caption of some kind.
Of course, the ironic part is that terrorist acts in America, like with these acts in Moscow, would most likely happen in concentrated Democrat parasite nests (”cities”). I certainly hope it never happens, but it would be ironic. Karmic, even.
“This may well be the work of Chechnyan terrorists.”
When it happened in 1999 (apartment bombings) the FSB ( successor to KGB) was responsible:
Three attacks has the smell of Al-Quaeda to it. Maybe more are planned in the minutes ahead.
Sounds like they are facing a similar situation like the events of 9-11 that came up in different areas as the morning went on. The government needs to protect the people and get a darn quick game plan.
I’m trying to get Russian television up right now.
The Vesti 24 all-news channel is now broadcasting phone reports on the bombings from the various locations.
I don’t have enough on my DSL to get the video signal yet.
Interesting, nothing on CNN, a banner on Fox, and more info on the BBC site.
Iran and the other terrorist groups except for AQ are friendly with Russia. AQ is friendly with no one, China hates them, Russia hates them, Iran hates them, other Sunni Islamic extremest groups hate them, and vice versa.
That’s what I’m thinking, Chechnyian.
I, weirdly, have been playing tunes from from Pat Metheny’s This Is Not America on youtube for the last hour.
Russia Today says NO EXPLOSION at Prospekt Mira. Was due to a CCTV image mixup.
(so much for claims of police confirmation)
The first blast happened very near the current FSB headquarters.
Too near, IMO, to have been a deliberate act by the FSB itself.
On the other hand, the feds were mysteriously cleared out of the Murrah building, weren’t they?
There is not “zero” security on US Public transportation.
The all news TV channel moved onto other stories after reporting on the bombings.
With government control of media strict in Russia, I doubt if we will see wall to wall coverage of this.
fox had 10 minutes of coverage at 1 a.m. - maybe they’ll finally break off geraldo and give us some more.
cnn still plays canned stuff...
I wish they would just permanently break off Whoraldo.
The Chinese know how to deal with them (Bullet in the back of the head)
The Russians know how do deal with them (Bullet in the front of the head)
The Iranians know how to deal with them (Cut their heads off)
The other Islamic terror orgs know how to deal with them (Cut their nuts off)
Hi bitt...I was pinged to this link, updating here:
I came to this thread via steelfish posting it too.
Shouldnt this be considered breaking news?
I am not in the know just asking.
‘”There is absolutely zero security on US public transportation.”
What can be done?
we need TM
Aint that the truth. My guess, lots of things are happening right now.
for the tv stations, they probably just have 2 people and the janitor working tonight, :)
FR has it in Breaking News, tho - we’re tops.
