When the Islamics that did this are identified, the entire FAMILIES of these people are in for a world of hurt.

Don't mess around with Russians. They don't play, and they grin and chortle while they torture you slowly.

Looks like some Moooozzies didn’t get the memo. Russkies reaping the bad karma from arming the Iranians. Zero sympathy.

Wait a sec. Maybe they leaked info to Mossad that helped with the Stuxnet caper at Natanz

MOSCOW (Reuters) - At least 10 people were killed and 20 injured in a suicide bomb blast at Moscow’s Domodedovo airport Monday, Interfax news agency reported.......

Moscow suffered its worst attack in six years in March 2010 when two female suicide bombers from Russia’s volatile Dagestan region set off explosives in the metro, killing 40 people.

First thoughts:

Muslims of course.

Are the Russians still supplying Iran with Missiles and helping them with their Nuclear ambitions?

Iranians are a different type of Muzzie. The type of Muzzie that attacks Russia also attacks China, Iran, the US, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Hezbollah, and Hamas.

Live TV streaming reports in English from RT America:

http://wwitv.com/tv_channels/b6215.htm

==

RTAmerica report:

Possibly 23 killed, 100 injured.

Main terminal being evacuated.

Blast took place in ‘arrival’ section. “Perplexing” per reporterette if the blast was from ‘bomb’ inside luggage, as luggage should have already been through security.

UPDATE

31 killed, 130 injured per Russian Health Ministry

Now officially listed as a terrorist attack.

RTAmerica UPDATE

Political analyst says that, if this was a suicide bomber, then the Muslim community will be where the investigation turns.

[Duh! At least they are not burying the information in PC and saying it was a lone rightwing nutcase who watches Rush and listens to Sarah.]

Well that quantity of explosives certainly did not arrive in the passenger's baggage.

We need to stick with the Amish because we all know their feelings cannot be hurt, they'll never even read it.

MOSCOW – An explosion ripped through the international arrivals hall at Moscow's busiest airport on Monday, killing 31 people and wounding about 130, Health Ministry officials said. The state RIA Novosti news agency, citing sources in law enforcement, said the explosion at Domodedovo Airport may have been caused by a suicide bomber....Could this be blamed on Sarah or the Tea Pary?

That size of a bomb would have taken out the airport and left one hell of a crater. The OKC bomb was estimated to be the equivalent of 5,000 lbs of TNT.
