Volgograd: 'Ten dead' in second blast to hit Russian city
BBC ^ | Monday, December 30, 2013

Posted on 12/29/2013 9:19:12 PM PST by kristinn

At least 10 people have been killed and 10 others injured in an explosion on a trolleybus in the Russian city of Volgograd, Russian media report.

The blast comes a day after 17 people died in a suicide bomb attack at the central station in the city.

Security has been tightened at railway stations and airports across Russia.

Moscow is concerned militant groups could be ramping up violence in the run-up to the 2014 winter Olympic Games in the city of Sochi.

The Olympic venue is close to Russia's volatile north Caucasus region.

Volgograd lies about 900km (560 miles) south of Moscow, 650km north of the North Caucasus and 700km north-east of Sochi.

During WWII it was called "Stalingrad", you might have heard about it.

Volgograd used to be named Stalingrad, the sight of the infamous seige during WWII. That said, this muzzie thing won’t end until China and Russia resolve to say enough is enough. Then it’s game over.

Mark my words, there are going to be whole lot of dead Muslims in Russia, I would guess a multiplication of 100 over the numbers killed in these two attacks.

I think Putin loves even numbers, being an orderly Marxist Bureaucrat.

And here is the money quote:

Bandar told Putin, "...The terrorist threat is growing in light of the phenomena spawned by the Arab Spring. We have lost some regimes. And what we got in return were terrorist experiences, as evidenced by the experience of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and the extremist groups in Libya.... As an example, I can give you a guarantee to protect the Winter Olympics in the city of Sochi on the Black Sea next year. The Chechen groups that threaten the security of the games are controlled by us...

So the question is was it Muslims, other dissidents, or the orderly Marxist Bureaucrat Putin creating an excuse to crack down on his political elements?

Good question.

If it was Putin, why now? It is casting a pale over the Russian Olympics, something I think he would not want.

Not in Volograd but not that far away. So, what happens in Volograd can very well happen in Sotchi.

My wife is from Volgoograd, and just last month returned after a long visit. We own an apartment overlooking the Volga River. I’m not surprised considering the proximity to Chechnya.

Sochi was Muslim Circassian/Adyge from the 15th century until the 19th century, when the Russians conquered the area in a campaign of mass murder and ethnic cleansing. There is a reason why there are no more Ubyks anymore. The Chechens have been fighting for two decades. Circassians have become more vocal because of the insult of the games location. If they resort to terrorism, then there will be a long bloody winter.

And the answer is Muzzies. We should not criticize the Russians as they crackdown on their Muzzie problem — which is hundreds of times worse than ours.

It’s only a matter of time until this happens enough in the U.S.A. that it effects our every day life. I have no doubt the goons in congress will expand the TSA in a major way to cover public transportation. That is their only solution - more government.

Sad. No doubt the Russian response is coming.

The Chechens are the most evil monsters alive today. The boys are raised up playing org ball, and that so they will not have compassion for their victims. The boys stand in a circle and dance passing a severed head among themselves.
