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.
