Russiaís Putin warns foreign rivals not to use Islam to weaken the Russia state
Euronews ^

Posted on 10/22/2013 3:29:31 PM PDT by kronos77

Russia is still cleaning up in the aftermath of a bomb that exploded outside the Southern Russian city of Volgograd on Monday.

A female suicide bomber is believed to have triggered the blast on a bus, killing six people and injuring 30 others.

President Vladimir Putin travelled to the Russian city of Ufa on Tuesday to meet with Muslim clerics.

He took the opportunity to warn unspecified foreign rivals not to use Islam to weaken the Russian state: “Some political forces use Islam – the radicals within it who are not typical of Russian Muslims – to weaken our state and create conflicts on Russian soil that can then be controlled from abroad.”

Security drills have begun already for the 2014 Winter Olympics that will take place next February in Sochi. The Black sea resort is not far from Volgograd, the scene of Monday’s bombing.

You know, back before Beslan, back before 911, during the bad old days of the Soviet Empire, using Islam to bring down the Soviet Union seemed like a genius idea.

Now, no.

It’s depressing to see and hear the Russian president making more sense than the American President.

He knows the score. The sorry-a$$ imposter we are stuck with doesn’t.

Putin should tell them, anymore more attacks on Russian soil and he will program these coordinates into their missiles:

21.4167° N, 39.8167° E

I would loved to be a fly on the wall...

My bet: it was blunt, to the point and left no question that a shit storm will fall from heaven ...if they didn't control their radical elements...

Of course Putin knows that Alfa Kayda was a creation of the CIA.

Islam is the greatest political and military force in the world, with more than a billion believers working in perfect tandem to bring about global caliphate, which not even the superpower can inflict damage, let alone a had been spent empire with a leader with Napoleon complex.

In part, I guess. However there are other players in the Muslim world who can benefit from Muslim-driven chaos, in Russia and elsewhere (Paris, Malmö, etc.) Saudis in particular have made some pretty active moves recently. Prince Bandar provided chemical weapons to Syrian rebels; that resulted in one big nothing and, as it seems, has hurt their little war and gave Assad the victorious finale he was trying for. Just a month before the attack Bandar secretly visited Moscow and tried to buy Syria from Putin. Putin offered him the finger instead. Now Prince Bandar is speaking about radically changing relations with the USA. (The bow was not deep enough. Next time when the King orders you to go to war for Saudi interests, be brave, ask no questions, and just do it.)

.
Permanent damage can be done overnight if the right places are done away with.

But that would take willpower — something the West lacks.

And don’t think the Russians didn’t take yesterday’s attack personally, due to where it occurred, the former “Stalingrad”. It’s almost considered ‘sacred ground’ to Russians.

Interesting take. And insightful. Looks like you maybe know a thing or two about the region?

MY uninformed guess is that Putin has a mudslimz problem, and Assad, for better or worse, was his go to guy to help keep the “problem” contained.

I like Putin, commie that he is, he has turned out to be very pragmatic. And a decisive guy.

So, you and I both know that Barry would faint before even considering nuking Mecca.

But, with Vlad Putin, I think the saudi 'cheeks' ain't really too sure.

I KNOW they lay in their tents at night and wonder: "Would he? Really, would he?"

And the uncertainty gives them diarrhea.

Putin will get medieval on them. Obamugabe will hug them, bend over, and say “Thank you sir may I have another?”

>>>I assume he’s talking about the USA/CIA?<<<

Remember Saudi prince Bandar’s visit to Moscow a few months ago.

He offered to ditch a secular regime in Syria in exchange for some $15 billion defence contracts to Russian companies and ‘protection’ for Sochi Olympics and other civilian targets against terror attacks.

AFAIK he was told to go pound sand a miraculously this bus in the suburb of Stalingrad exploded recently.

I guess Putin is saying Bandar overplayed his hand big time this time.

Rich Arabs has to watch their backs, and do a background check to their food tasters.

Vacation Guy Carnival Barker Demon Spawn from Hell arch criminal and Prince of Lies Soetero is a bigger red than Putin could ever hope to be, and is probably a KGB operative to boot.

The Soviets are content to sit back and let their plant in the WH destroy every American institution possible, and that's why they have been behaving.

Hussein has caused more damage to the USA in the last 5 years than the COMINTERN and its successors has in the last 100.

By the way, he's seriously a faggot.
