Terrorists Attack Russian Power Station

From the defenders of the faith at the Associated Press:

Police: 2 killed in Russian power station attack

ROSTOV-ON-DON, Russia – Two carloads of assailants attacked a hydroelectric station in southern Russia early Wednesday, killing two workers and setting off bombs.

The attack took place in Kabardino-Balkariya, one of the republics in Russia’s restive Caucasus region where clashes with insurgents are frequent.

“Assailants,” “restive,” “insurgents.” We can see where this is going.

A spokesman for the republic’s police, Adlan Kakakuyev, said two cars carrying a half-dozen assailants attacked the Baksan plant at about 4:30 a.m., killing two guards and wounding three others in gunfire. The attackers then set off explosives in several parts of the 25-megawatt plant and detonated them before fleeing

The explosions and subsequent fire destroyed two of the plant’s three power units, but there was no danger of flooding downriver, the state news agency ITAR-Tass cited power company RusGidro as saying…

The state news agency ITAR-Tass is also saying that this was a terrorist attack. Did you ever think you would see the day when it would be harder to get the truth from the AP than from Tass?

Still, we couldn’t help but think it might be dedicated environmentalists.

Kakakuyev said the same attackers are believed to have earlier opened fire on a police station in the town of Baksan. No one was hurt in that attack.

The attack on the hydroelectric station was the most dramatic outburst of violence in the Russian Caucasus in recent months. Although Kabardino-Balkariya sees less violence than nearby Chechnya, Dagestan and Ingushetia, the republic suffers from persistent tensions stemming from poverty and harsh police actions toward worship by unsanctioned Muslim sects.

Everyone knows that “poverty” always makes people set off bomb at hydraulic dams. 

Especially, if they are very religious.

    Technically, poverty can lead to terrorism.
    The hate spewing Imams that never place themselves in danger will convert and direct the poor to do these things.

      Their koran teaches jihad is one of islam’s main pillars. It has nothing to do with poverty at all. They also believe that if they set the world on fire (war in every country), their mahdi (leader) will come and convert the whole world to islam.

      First rule of war is know your enemy:
      Find a torrent for ‘The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam and the Crusades.’
      Listen and learn.

      Their imams can’t make anyone to do anything. What they want to do, they will do on their own because they believe the crapola about homicide bombers will get their 72 piglets in paradise.

      Wait till they go to where ever and find 72 Virginians instead of 72 virgins.
      Game on!!

    Unsanctioned Muslim sects?
    I mean……what the ……..
    Nomads of Islam?

    A world wide pattern in the media. America calls muslim Hezbollahs crossing the border unauthorized Mexicans. And now Russia is calling muslim terrorists who strap bombs & hang bombs from the ceilings, blowing up school children on their first day of school “insurgents”.
    And our U.S. soldiers have to call the Taliban; civilians & farmers.
