Female Muslims Kill 38 On Moscow Subway

From those defenders of the faith at the Associated Press:


Double suicide bombings kill 38 on Moscow subway

March 29, 2010

MOSCOW — Two female suicide bombers blew themselves up Monday in twin attacks on Moscow subway stations jam-packed with rush-hour passengers, killing at least 38 people and wounding more than 60, officials said. They blamed the carnage on rebels from the Caucasus region.

The blasts come six years after Islamic separatists from the southern Russian region carried out a pair of deadly Moscow subway strikes and raise concerns that the war has once again come to the capital, amid militants’ warnings of a renewed determination to push their fight.

Chechen rebels claimed responsibility for a deadly bombing late last year on a passenger train en route from Moscow to St. Petersburg. Last month, Chechen rebel leader Doku Umarov warned in an interview on a rebel-affiliated Web site that “the war is coming to their cities.”

The first explosion took place just before 8 a.m. at the Lubyanka station in central Moscow. The station is underneath the building that houses the main offices of the Federal Security Service, the KGB’s main successor agency, a symbol of power under Vladimir Putin.

About 45 minutes later, a second explosion hit the Park Kultury station, which is near the renowned Gorky Park. In both cases, the bombs were detonated as the trains pulled into the stations and the doors were opening…

The iconic Moscow subway system is the world’s second-busiest after Tokyo’s, carrying around 7 million passengers on an average workday, and is a key element in running the sprawling and traffic-choked city.

Russian TV showed amateur video from inside the Lubyanka station of wounded and possibly dead victims sitting and lying on the floor. The train platform was filled with smoke. The LifeNews.ru site showed gruesome photos of dead passengers sprawled inside a mangled subway car and a bloody leg lying on a station platform.

Outside both stations, passengers flooded out, many of them crying and making frantic calls on their cell phones. The wounded were loaded into ambulances and helicopters, some with their heads wrapped in bloody bandages, as sirens wailed…

The militants receive moral and perhaps financial support from al-Qaida. Dozens of contributors to three Web sites affiliated with al-Qaida wrote comments in praise of Monday’s attacks.

One site opened a special page to “receive congratulations” for the Chechen rebels who “started the dark tunnel attacks in the apostate countries,” and all wished for God to accept the two sisters as martyrs.

“Don’t forget Russia’s crimes of genocide in the Caucasus and Chechnya,” said one writer. “The battle has been shifted to the heart of Moscow,” another wrote…

How out of character for the AP to mention “Islamist separatists” in the second paragraph.

Maybe they just feel more protective about their darlings in the Soviet Union Russia.

    Did they mention the suicide bomber that killed all those children in the Russia school.

    Maybe Vlad Putin is behind this. Elections are coming up & he & his lackeys are extremely unpopular. Would anyone be surprised? The explosives are reputed to be similar to the ones used in the apartment explosion several years ago, the one reputed to have been instigated by Putin & his former KGB cronies to stoke Russian patriotic furur prior to those elections.

      You could be right.

      Muslims have been reluctant to attack the Russians, who consider water-boarding to be a vacation day for a terrorist.

      As a reminder, the Russians sacrificed millions of soldiers in WWII, for battles we would consider to be unnecessary. And that was just following centuries of tradition for them. They don’t mind getting their fingernails dirty when they are protecting the homeland.

      Why, I think they even dare to call them “terrorists”.

    And the difference between a Name-and-Costume-Change Communist and a Muslim Terrorist is … ???

      muslim terrorists pretend that a 1200 year-old book written by an angry out-of-power nut directs them to conquer the world and rule it.

    I’m sure glad these folks represent the Religion of Peace; it scares the crap out of to think what would happen if they weren’t so damned peaceful!
    Now we’ll see if Putin has the gonads to deal with these nut jobs; at one time Russia would’ve simply hunted them down and exterminated them.

    • caligirl9 says:

      If Russia does decide to engage on its own “war on terrorism” against Muslim extremists, bet their little “war” doesn’t follow all the rules like U.S. troops are forced to adhere to.

      Waterboarding will be asked for … to avoid whatever else the Russian authorities are willing to dish out!

      Terrorists, meet … terrorists.

    Now here’s the way it should be done –
    Putin calls for bombers to be ‘scraped from sewers’…

    Obammy would’ve apologized for not having more people in the subway when the bombs went off.
