Special Forces will shortly be given an assignment.

Too bad we’re so infiltrated all we do is give them the best lawyers.

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.

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.

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.

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...

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.

Yeah, misunderstood youths will do that!

At least we could learn from some countries that don’t deal with this kind of ‘crime’ like we do.

Russia takes a lot of crap from their islamic terrorists, considering that they still want to cozy up to the likes of Iran.

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:

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.

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.

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?

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.

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)
