Suicide bombers kill 37 in Moscow’s subway
MOSCOW – Two female suicide bombers blew themselves up on Moscow’s subway system as it was jam-packed with rush-hour passengers Monday, killing at least 37 people, officials said.
Witnesses described panic at two stations, with commuters falling over each other in dense smoke and dust as they tried to escape the worst attack on the Russian capital in six years.
The head of Russia’s main security agency said preliminary investigation places the blame on rebels from the restive Caucasus region that includes Chechnya, where separatists have fought Russian forces since the mid-1990s. Alexander Bortnikov, head of the FSB, told President Dmitry Medvedev the bombs were filled with bolts and iron rods.
Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, who built much of his political capital by directing a fierce war with Chechen separatists a decade ago, vowed that “terrorists will be destroyed.”

Russia is thought to be one of the two most repressive, security conscious nations on earth. This 1st blast was beneath the headquarters of the FSB, that’s the NEW name for the KGB for those not in the know. Talk about taking a stab at the heart of the matter!
In the wake of the explosions, New York’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority announced a “heightened security presence,” NBC News reported.
Isn’t that a bit like closing the barn door after the horse is out?
We’re NOT a repressive society. We are America, the land of the FREE and the home of Political Correctness. That said, tell me exactly HOW the NYC transportation people are going to spot, and stop, potential suicide bombers in the New York subway system?
Can they stop anyone that looks like an Arab? No, that won’t work, it’s not PC. Can they ask anyone that looks Arab, ‘say, are YOU a Muslim terrorist?’ No, that won’t work either, religious freedom being all that it is. How about this? Stop all women dressed in burkas and strip search them? Uh, no, I’m sure there’s a sexist approach in that suggestion, not to mention profiling and at least some sort of religious persecution.
All that personal and religious freedom that we enjoy here in the good old USA is tough pill to swallow when American lives are in danger huh? I guess that’s what we get for being the melting pot of the world. People can wear their native dress and have a right not to be questioned about it.
But let’s face facts. Our soldiers are being forced to fight a politically correct war in Afghanistan. I can’t see how that could be an event that is even possible, but it’s a reality that IS happening, and it’s getting American troops killed.
Our Muslim loving president has said that WE are not at war with Islam, yet Islamic warriors are the ones committing these attacks, in Russia, and other parts of the world. But our Muslim loving president doesn’t want to offend his TRUE faith, Islam.
So, there is no way that we in the USA can defend against terror attacks, not without going against the wishes of Barry Soetoro, aka; Barack Hussein Obama. An individual that is believed by many to actually BE a Muslim, and a sympathizer to Muslims causes and acts of violence as well as a radical takeover of this nation.
Again, let’s face facts. Enforcement is arbitrary on the Federal level. It’s OK to arrest a group of Christian militia members that present a threat, but NO NO NO, don’t go after a Muslim group, we might offend Barry Soetoro’s homies!
WASHINGTON (AP) – Nine suspects tied to a Christian militia in the Midwest are charged with conspiring to kill police officers, then attack a funeral in the hopes of killing more law enforcement people, federal prosecutors said Monday.
Members of the group called Hutaree are charged in the case, including their leader, David Brian Stone.
Once other officers gathered for the slain officer’s funeral, the group planned to detonate homemade bombs at the funeral, killing more, according to newly unsealed court papers. SOURCE
I have got to say, if these charges are accurate, if they are even close to accurate, these people need to be taken down, all of them, and anyone connected to them.
By the same token, any that seek to kill or maim American citizens, any that seek to terrorize the American people, regardless of their ethnicity, religion or place of birth, need to be brought down in similar fashion.
From the original article:
President Barack Obama condemned the “outrageous” attacks. “The American people stand united with the people of Russia in opposition to violent extremism,” he said in a statement.
Frankly, I don’t believe a word of it, I don’t believe a word that comes from Obama’s mouth. He utters the words his handlers tell him to say, they try to keep him on track in an effort to seduce the weak minds of libbers and RINOs that fall for his charisma. Well, some call it charisma…
If Barry Soetoro, uh, Barack Hussein Obama is real, if his words on standing united with Russia against the ones committing these acts of terror are to be believed, let our troops take off the gloves. Let our troops fight as they should. Let our Law Enforcement agencies go after Muslims terrorists here in the USA without all the PC bull crap they have to endure. Close our borders and deport ALL ILLEGALS.
Melting pot my eye! We’re a target, and that’s ALL we are…
